tbh studying for the LSAT has made me so much better at analyzing argument in articles and on facebook and stuff.

From now till the day I'll be blind reviewing 75 I took today, doing write ups on wrong Q's and drilling sections.

What does everyone else plan on doing? I won't be taking Friday off. I work so I'll study before work a bit and call it a day for studying.


I'm trying to resist the urge to study.

At this point, burn out would most likely offset any minimal gains I could incur from studying. Plus, I could lose confidence and psyche myself out if I find myself focusing on my mistakes.

Petrified of test day burnout. >.<


understandable, young lauryn.

I feel like eating really healthy and meditation helped me mentally so much. I feel much more prepared for this take although my PT's were re-takes so I'm paranoid as hell about the true accuracy of them . I know they're a bit inflated but damn.


I fell asleep while mediating last night and trying to focus on the number 180. lmao
Today and tomorrow I'm going to do my best to on mental/emotional prep.

I sat for the October test and it was...horrific. I ended up losing track of time and only finishing half of the first section (which has NEVER happened to me during PTs, which I usually finished with time to spare). I ended up becoming so upset that I was literally incapable of continuing because tears kept blurring my vision...so I just cancelled and ran out. Worst experience of my life...but it was my fault for not preparing mentally. :oops:


I feel your pain. I underperformed on every section in October, getting about 3 wrong more than usual which added up to a massive drop in score.

Do you use guided meditations or just on your own?

I ate healthy leading up to October. And now I'm here.

Pizza and I should never have parted ways. At least that's what I'm chalking it up to.

Me too. :D It is my all time, hands down favorite movie ever.


guided meditations work for me better simply because I'm more likely to do them if they are guided. For some reason it makes it less daunting of a task in my head

You didn't say you were delaying for food. That's a cause that You, Future You, and I can all rally around.

Real talk I've been 30-45 min early to the lib every day this week

By my calculations, you've earned yourself a 1.5 to 2 hour lunch then!
