so you were a math and accounting major right?

I'd say 172 to ED in UVA or something.

After my LSAT I started figuring out the ones I got wrong, and it was unsettling because I worried about what else I got wrong. I ended up doing fine.

I've been doing this, only the opposite effect has happened. Every question I've figured out has turned out to be what I think is right. This has given me too much confidence. Watch me end up crying over a 170 now.

Yea, there is another prolific TLSer, who was giving me shit for missing two questions that we debated about. He got those two right, but missed like 6 of the easiest questions on the test. Ended with a 170.

Instead of posing endless hypotheticals about things that haven't happened yet, maybe you should just wait another week for your LSAT score and evaluate whether any of these hypotheticals matter at that point.

Or maybe hes freaking out and that said week is like an eternity. You could have a little sympathy and just say "170+ and you're golden for Northwestern, brah."

Yes, exactly.
This week is hell but I'm telling myself that there's always the opportunity to retake.

TBF we told him 3.0/170 UVA ED is gold like 15 times already. This has got to be his 5th thread.

Go write your personal statement, or do your summer school work. And don't dare tell me you aren't taking summer school to up that GPA.

I'm not URM.
TBF, this is the first time I asked with including hypothetical work experience.
Unless I rocked the LSAT (175+), it probably doesn't make sense to apply to law school this year.

I think most of us our pretty neurotic, so it's nearly impossible not to obsess over questions we may have missed. But if there's any way to not focus on it, that's probably best. I told some folks immediately after the LSAT what I thought I scored. Three weeks waiting on TLS lowered my estimation by about 10 points. In the end, my actual score was within one point of what I thought I scored walking out of the testing center.

Having followed the Dr. Strangelove saga from the beginning, I can't wait to find out how he/you did.
