OKAY so for those of you who are into this stuff, I spoke to a shaman while abroad (because why not) and he suggested that the best way to get a JS2 and get it quickly is to close your eyes and imagine what it would be like to get one, and write down the things you would do: Whom would you call first? Whom would you thank? Imagine how people — IRL and ITT — will respond to you.

He said that he's given actors this advice before award shows as well, and it's worked. Standard LSAT logical reservations apply; but I think we're beyond logic at this point.

I've actually done this for years. Call me crazy but visualizing success has worked out for me so far :wink: I thought up my obnoxious fb acceptance status months prior to getting in.

This is what I do every night when I go to bed. That is how I fall asleep.
