Same. I feel like I only did very well on one video and one written. I'm glad I'm not in this boat by myself.
You can't really prepare for the non-obvious ones, so don't sweat it. Or at least, that's what I am telling myself.
I think you're right on this one. Generaly, I'm not in the slightest confident that any of our answers beyond "Why Northwestern" weigh all that much. I'm also curious in that the alleged weight of the LSAT writing sample is generally an occasion for mockery on this board - and now we're sweating online writing samples? Other than filtering out truly atrocious (obscure and analytically inept) writing, is there any serious bonus to be gained from penning an elegant essay? (And I don't think that failing to connect with the set question and/or being slightly unstructured in your response would qualify as 'atrocious' i.e. automatic eliminate here.)
As to 'how was your hair', I wanna ask: in what condition was your physical environment in?
I video'd myself in my university office and contrary to NU's advice to keep the environment uncluttered, I boldly left everything in its 'natural' state: several stacks of ungraded student papers and books strewn on the floor. Now crossing fingers that these videos are watched by sympathetic law school professors up to their neck in grading 1L papers.
