Is there anyone willing to read my diversity statement? It's really short. A little less than 1 page, double-spaced. I would just like some general comments on how it reads. I'll read anything of yours in return. If you're willing, just post in this thread and I'll PM it to you or you can PM directly. Thanks in advance.

It's the day BEFORE the test and my stomache is queasy. My hands are shaking uncontrollably. I'm a wreck. I get this nervous before practice tests too and I'm able to concentrate fine during them, but somehow I think tomorrow is going to be different. Anybody got any ideas of how to calm the hell down?
What does everyone else do?
I have always read the question stem first. I don't know why, but I feel that it just gets me in the best state of mind when I'm reading the stimulus. However, I'm in a Testmasters course now and they are so against this as is Powerscore and the LRB, mainly saying that it takes your focus off being able to fully understand the information in the stimulus.
Now I tried reading the stimulus first one time (on a diagnostic) and I couldn't even finish the section. I've never not finished a section. Not only that I missed more questions than I have ever missed.
Does anybody think it's really that important to read the stimulus first? Is it even worth me trying to change at this point?
I've taken 4 diagnostics.
I've gotten 160, 162, 165, and now a 178 out of nowhere on Oct 2003.
I went from missing 8-10 on LR to 1 on this test and missing around 6 on LG to 2. My RC stayed about the same.
Has anyone else had these?
i'n dyin here. i go from being confident that i did ok one minute to i must have done horribly the next. i refuse to look at the consensus answers because i don't want to upset myself even more. i can't get this test off my brain. what's a good way to cope?
