this test has got me by the balls. I hate it. I practiced everyday since before Halloween for this stupid thing. I boosted my scores up to the low 160's (after bombing last June and getting a 149), consistently. I took at least 15 practice tests.
Then on test day I got so nervous, the page just turned into alphabet soup. Little curvy lines all over the place, I know I'm supposed to be doing something.......oh yeah I'm in the middle of the LSAT, is the proper time for a total meltdown?? OK,... ready,.... go!!!! Completly abandoned all question techniques I've learned, lost my cool completely. Deep down I feel like I don't belong here. Everyone must be smarter than me. Perusing this website certainly isn't helping, but I cant' help it. I must be addicted to LSD
I didn't really cool off until the third section. of course the experimental. I'm wondering what to do.
Because I have already bombed, and it's on my record, I guess I'll keep my score. I'm already relagated to local school due to poor GPA. This SUCKS. I had hopes of scoring closer to 165, and maybe being able to apply to slightly higher ranked school even with a 149, becasue of the huge gap between the scores. I AM CAPABLE of a mid 160's score. But not when I'm freaking out like that. I'm so pissed, I may just take it in June for kicks. When it doens't matter. I won't tell anyone, study minimally and try and go in not giving a s*#t. But as a very non-traditional applicant I never know what to think. GPA 2.4 from UCSB, former drug addict/alchoholic, carpenter/trade worker/waiter/laborer, recent 3.76 GPA at SF City College, mulitple DUI's and other drunken arrests.
I'm smart enough and diligent enough to succeed in law school; of this I have no doubt. But this stupid test could be the BS thing that keeps me out. I guess at this point it can't really hurt me to take it a third time.....
Keep or Cancel??
