I bombed the games. Worst then my diagnostic. Its cool. For December i will just do the ACE the LSAT games book along  with the older LSATs that ignored.

The whole games getting eaiser is BS. They are easier on certain test.

To  screw with peoples head. Just like having to fax to cancel and not getting a response for a week, faxing a complaint  and their stupid 3 test in two years  rule . Its just to annoy people.

When freaking test companies like Kaplan can give you scores instantly with little technology.

LSAC is so behind the teams. You have to fax them information. The test should be on a computer with the games on paper so that you sketch on them and you should get your score instantly.

This is so silly. Its like they won't get with the times to drive people crazy. I understand if their was a writing portion that was graded. But its strictly a scantron test!

We have the technology . Have a test every 2 months. You are given your test booklet. And you bubble in the answers online. That way you prevent misbubbling  and its timed.

They are stuck in the 90s.

This is lies. The social security number is on your admissions ticket. You can't the test without it.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSAT Score Assumptions/Results

Was averaging a 161-164

 I was expecting the high 150s because i was tired.

Actual score. 150.


I went to sleep the night before the LSAT at about 2 AM because i was nervous. Woke up at 5: 30 and did a section for some reason. I was so tired that i  left my watch at home to time myself. So i stopped at the drug store while driving 20 miles away to Georgetown to pick up a watch and a energy drink to wake myself up. The drink did not work for me. And i took this pill called Thalma because it ws suppose to the cut down on anxiety. I left the test not remembering a thing about it. It was all a blur.


For the October test i had a good nights sleep. Slept at 9  and someone had to wake me up. Did 1 game and 1 LR problem. And drunk a 5 hour and a red bull. I was more alert.

I hope it helped my score.

LSAT horror stories / Re: October 2008 Stories

Here's my story:

I wasn't that nervous when I got into the test.. But my arms and legs went numb when they started distributing the exams.

I always felt pressed for time, and found myself answering questions too slowly or too quickly.

I managed to finish each and every question though (maybe 3 or 4 half guesses for the entire test).

I feel good now, but that's due to the fact that it's over and done with. I have no idea how I performed...

As for other test takers, there wasn't anything really unusual. One guy however was sweating like crazy before the test began. I suppose that isn't much worse than numb extremities, but at least my anxiety wasn't visible.

The test robs energy from you.

Yes its easy. I just called the New England school of law and they faxed it right away. Gave them my lsac account numbet,name and SS. And gave the fax  number of LSAC where they told me to fax it to.

Then it takes like 2 to 3 days for LSAC to process it and they let you take it again.

That's very odd since I actually spoke with someone from LSAC and it was they that told me I was able to register

Its easy to bypass the law. Get a school to fax LSAC that you can take it aagin.

Go into the LSAT with low expectations. I failed so much on this test the expiermental games was just more water under the bridge for me. I could care less. I just tried my best the whole test.

Law School Applications / Re: Pretty much in tears..

Next time try a bunch of energy drinks and a lot of sleep. It heleped me.  I don't know how accurate i was but the test felt like another prep test after i drunk a red bull, 5 hour and slept well.  I think taking the test regular was a problem for me because just the stress of being there saps energy from you.
