Good of place as any


When I first started studying for the LSAT in ~May, my SO wanted to go to law school too. He's smart, but a reaallyyy bad studier, he doesn't have the discipline to sit down and do nothing but LSAT for hours because he's used to being hyper and teaching kids. He kept getting frustrated that I was scoring better and better and he couldn't break 160, so he decided to keep teaching instead of doing LS.
Is it really mean that I'm glad he's not applying? I know he could do well if he actually tried, but he just doesn't. It would be awful trying to reassure him that his test score isn't bad at all while also freaking out about my own test score. And I would feel like a dick every time I got in somewhere.
So selfishly, I'm glad that he's not applying and I'm not in a dickish position :?

I got a 163 on it and on the actual test I got a 15x. What do I do if I'm missing some of the same questions that I missed on test day? It's really crazy how exact it is and I'm realizing I was set up for failure by taking that hard ass LR section first.


Really considering withdrawing. If I don't apply this cycle I'm going to have to waste a year of my life in limbo, but this will also be my second take and I can't mess it up. I wanted to PT in the 170s before taking again but I've been usually scoring between 163-167 on my PT's. I'll be happy with a score between that range. Before the October test, I was scoring around the 160-162 range but my score actual score dropped to the 150s.

I'm so happy reading comp is becoming not a nightmare for me anymore. I honestly feel like Saturday is the day I get over my anxiety and pull out a 160+ like I have been doing on PT's all the god damn time. Its so scary how much anxiety can ruin you.

I'd feel the same way in your position. Honestly I've run into people who are like that, and it's awful having to reassure them when I really know they're just not going to listen/change/improve. Kind of a big reason I don't talk to most others who are studying. I can imagine it's 100000x worse if it's a SO.

ETA: and then on top of that, super unlikely you guys wind up at the same school which would put even more strain on things...


ahhh thank you. I feel better with confirmation that I'm not a super douche. I think if I got into somewhere I really wanted to go and he didn't, he would just withdraw apps and go there with me anyways. Which would be awful because I would feel awful :shock:

so all in all, even though waiting for decisions is tough, this decision season is MUCH less stressful than it could've been!

Besides circle and pattern games, can you guys see any other rare type of game appearing on Saturday?

Yeah way less stressful than it could have been hahaha.
First time I did all of this it pretty much ripped apart my relationship with my then SO. This whole process is so stressful.


Awh sorry to hear that =( the one who can withstand the stress is out there!
If I hadn't been with my SO for as long as I have, I could definitely see LS being mega destructive on us
