Seriously considering wearing sweatpants Saturday for the comfort... Probably won't, though.

Glad I posted then. Seemed like a good idea to me. I've noticed that if I'm wearing clothes in which I'm not that comfortable, it just makes the LSAT seem even harder. I read somewhere that hoodies aren't allowed, though, so I guess I'd have to wear a t-shirt with sweatpants. EDIT: Just found a 7Sage thread from a couple years ago where they said that hoodies are fine as long as you don't wear the hood over your head. Sweet.

Yeah I wore a hoodie in September. Its fine. I wore joggers, a tank top and a hoodie. So I was able to be warm enough when it was cold or when it got hot, i was able to cool off quickly & be comfortable

A couple of life-related things kept me busy yest and this morning so my schedule got messed up a bit. I am going to take a 4 section PT pretty much this afternoon and last 5 section true-PT tomorrow. Im going to review and drill thurs.. Then friday, i plan in the morning to do 1 LR, 1 RC, 1 LG.. and after that chill out the remainder of the day. Ill prob do a writing sample just for fucks and to have some good ole' light "fun" with the exam to ease my mind lmao.

Feeling pretty good overall. Ready for d-day, just trying to maintain focus and confidence. Time to make this happen for once and for all!

Despite this being a long and grinding 6 month journey and a rough Sept sitting, i cant believe dec is already here. Time flies when you are lost in LSAT...

Make it 9 months for me...

I honestly don't know what I'm going to do with myself when I'm done with this. Apps are going in the next week... Maybe I'll just continue to study and keep taking it until the fall just to see how high I can get... LMAO.

I thought I was the only person on that level. I feel like there's going to be such a big empty hole in my heart after Saturday. A month ago, I was half-jokingly telling myself that I'll continue studying for the LSAT to see how high I can go just for fun even if I don't need to retake. Hahaha

Lol, if i get 170 I might just start trying to teach/tutor through the local course I took to make some spare money towards tuition. If I don't get a 170, well then I need to retake to get it...

Can anyone help me understand PT 81.SII.Q26? This is the Nobel Prize question. I think there is a fundamental flaw in the correct answer choice.

[+] Spoiler
Copied from Manhattan LSAT -- I felt the same as this person.

"My first instinct was (E), but then I thought that the wording 'Nobel Prizes are inaccurate indicators...' should only refer to people who get the prize, not the people who don't. Surely when you refer to Nobel Prizes, you refer to the awarded prizes, and not the non-awarded people, i.e. Bob Dylan and Toni Morrison's Nobel Prizes. And neither speaker contend that people who DO get the prizes are not worthy or did not contribute enough to their scientific disciplines.

The idea is that some people who DIDN'T get the Nobel Prize who are worthy, so (E) should read 'Not receiving a Nobel Prize may not be an accurate indicator...' or 'Whether or not one receives a Nobel Prize is not an accurate indicator of one's contribution...'

This really bugs me! Perhaps (E) still has that flaw, but it's the only viable answer? I thought (B) is the only other possibility, because both Winston and Sanjay are very science-specific - but it's still possible they think that the same problems exist in other disciplines."
