I think so?

I thought it went okay... I'm really glad its over! I don't think I bombed but I don't think I blew it out of the water either. There was something funny that happened, though. At my testing site they grouped people into rooms by their last names, and the room that I was grouped into was "LAH - LUCK". Hehe.

I'd say...

Games: 5
LR1: 7
LR2: 5
RC: 5.5

I had an experimental RC which was hard as all hell, so I'm glad it wasn't counted.... I did get a long string of one letter in one of the sections though, which makes me think I got at least one of those questions wrong. Sigh.

Wow it's like a Northeastern hate-fest in here... Go Midwest!

Were you particularly good or bad at logic games? What made you choose that section? At this point, I've improved my logic games score a *ton* and now it's only the LR that is dragging me down... On my two awful PTs yesterday, I got 2 wrong in each of the RCs (unusual for me), 1 and 3 wrong in the LGs (respectively), and a total of 9 and 10 wrong in the two LR sections combined on each of the tests... which is also something that hasn't really happened before. I used to max out at 4 wrong per LR, sometimes getting only -1.... I can't figure out if my diminished performance was based on yesterday's circumstances or because the LR sections were especially difficult on those tests...

I don't even know if there's a way to evaluate the toughness of individual sections of different LSATs...

I'm going out for sushi with some friends tonight, and then tomorrow i'll probably go to my usual coffee place and get a latte and a muffin...

50 days minimum? Maybe less if you do two on each weekend day... I graduated from the U of C recently which is pretty much identical to the school you're describing and I know how hard it is to just keep up with normal class work. Given that, I really don't see how you could reasonably do it in under a month and a half. Two months would provide you with more cushion, I'd think.

What would you say constitutes a gentle warm-up tomorrow morning before the test? I don't want to overdo it, but I don't want to be in a brain fog either...

I've been waiting to give my LOR requests and everything to my recommenders, but as of yet haven't been able to get a meeting with any of them. It's the week before finals here and I'm sure that has something to do with it, but I think my anxiety comes from the frustration of knowing that I'm all set to go as far as the requests go, but I really need to be able to meet with them!

So I've been taking practice tests for a little while now and I was scoring pretty much consistently in the low to mid 170s which I was happy with. Then, today, I took two practice tests and scored a 167 and 164 respectively... Eeeek! I mean, granted, the tests I took today weren't exactly under ideal conditions... I was kind of freaking out about my LOR requests and got interrupted by talking co-workers a lot... but... still... I'm kind of worried now that I'm on a downward trend and am going to bomb the thing on Saturday...

Has this ever happened to anyone before? How did you deal with it? Should I just take tomorrow off? Or do more studying? I just don't know...
