Dude me too!
I have awful allergies, and this is super common for me. Be careful with Benadryl the active ingredient is the same thing that makes you go to sleep in Tylenol PM....


god, hope you guys feel better. i myself have been feeling a little nauseous, headache and it's not a good feeling so close to the test. hope it's only anxiousness not something real.

Im confident in everyone's ability to reach their target score, but just in case - this is important! (And kinda cheesy but whatever)

Write down 10 things you love/admire about yourself that are non-lsat related. Put it in an envelope and keep it til score release day. Before you check LSAC for those grey icons, read the list to yourself and remember that you are more than this stupid test. And a not up-to-par score can't change those 10 things.

Our first poll in the waiter's thread should be a score release date prediction poll. I'm already anxious lol

do you have spare time to review 15 questions at the end of the section?

This sounds nice. It's kind of sad how much of my self worth lately has been based solely on how well a PT goes.

Honestly, I'd be content with a 165.



I'll even drop the bar to 163 dependent on offers from the schools I apply too. 165+ would be my ideal minimum score.


166. I'm already resigned to repeating this all in February.

I'm thinking this too actually. My PT's this week haven't been in my usual range *cries*. Dunno if this is due to burnout though....

IDK depending on how I feel after Sat I might just start cracking the books right after the exam even. If it seems like it went okay I'll prob wait until scores come out and THEN (if needed) start up again and maybe wait until June.... IDK this is all so stressful, lol.

Then I remembered my 3 sub 170 have come 1) as the second of two PTs in one day or 2) sleep deprived/hungover. Makes me feel a bit better... Denial/ making excuses can be a helpful tool hahah

Same here; if I score lower than normal my whole days feels ruined. I'm trying really hard to take a step back and appreciate everything I have and everything I can do that isn't LSAT. Yoga strangely helps with this

Just about every person I've spoken with who went 170/+ emphasized having a positive and confident attitude above all else, and to not go too hard on studying the week before the test.

"Everyone I've spoken to who scored higher than 170 on the LSAT emphasized having a positive and confident attitude above all else. Therefore, because I feel positive and confident, I am sure to score at least a 170 on Saturday."

This is literally how I think of everything now.
