On the real, I am starting to think PS LR Bible is superior to MH LR. I'm going to read both because I'm a loser with no life but initial impressions.

Can you sleep at night if you have this C4 stuff in the late afternoon/evening?

ALSO because we are ON-TOPIC ITT - Stem or stimulus first, discuss.

Actually, yes. I've gotten used to it but I wake up at ~630 every morning and go to bed at ~1130-1200am. If I take it late on the weekend, I'm up until 3am tho.

Stimulus. I don't understand the QS first folk.

Dope thank you. I'm pretty bad at sleeping at a reasonable hour if I have caffeine late so may be different, we'll see.

There really isn't much caffeine in most preworkouts. C4 is a little more than monster energy drinks, the one I'm on now is only 20mg (Lots of B12) and my favorite Ghost is 37 or 50mg.

I think I'm team part-of-the-question-that's-like-"What is the necessary assumption?" first, because if you read a 'what logically follows' q looking for an NA, it's a big time sink. 'Tis but a shadow of a memory now though so idrk #rip

Large part of why I couldn't sleep until 2 or 3am the day before test day is because I had a green tea latte at 4pm that day....

If your caffeine sensitive just get used to it for a week. I can take enough caffeine for a bull elephant and still be okay so pre gives me just enough. C4 is a good starter but Ghost is by far my favorite so far.

I'm not the best sleeper either, especially in UG I would go to bed at 230/300 and wake up at 10. Work sort of forces you to fix that tho.

Ran out of melatonin - need to buy some more. And damn, didn't know that as a thing.
It's mostly because I keep doing the low-sleep low-sleep -> sleep until 3pm to catch up -> get myself sleep-schedule-fucked again.

Like shes mad cool (and one of the catalysts to my law journey) but my hair has significantly changed so I'm worried she'll have no clue who I am and tell me to buzz off.
All of my apps will be deemed irrelevant due to lackluster LORs. Gonna have to make up for it with interview techniques and personal statements.

Most people's face recognition abilities aren't that bad. I'm sure it'll be fine.

Also fucking same. I hope we're not the minority there.

one of the admissions masters said that lors really aren't that unique and all follow the same pattern. Idk I was denied 2 of them because, "I didn't take them throughout my undergraduate career." They only taught 3 classes all of which I took...
