I know I am. I was super excited to score 170 on my first diagnostic, cold, before I knew much fo anything about the LSAT-I hadn't even considered anywhere besides Berkeley and UCLA. Of course, now that Berkeley looks like a bit more of a long-shot after hearing about their GPA whoring, I'm not so sure anymore about even that.
So I've been doing the LSAT studying thing, trying to do at least a test a day for the last week, in addition to various forms of prep over the last year. It seems like I'm consistently getting around 170, regardless of the time put in. And then I did one tonight and missed 10 problems in just one logical reasoning section. They were all dumb mistakes, but it's not like I'm really getting burnt out, as I know I haven't studied nearly enough. And I already took a break this weekend and went home.
On top of that, I found out my school's testing center is in this horrible, horrible lecture hall with tiny half desks that flip out over the seat.
I was planning on hardcore studying over Thanksgiving break during many lengthy car trips in preparation for Dec, but now I'm not so sure. I'm debating just focusing on school until the June LSAT when I can take it at a better test center like USC, and have more time to prepare.
Is it worth it to be done earlier if it doesn't seem like the prep is helping? There's no consistent pattern of mistakes, just dumb things I don't get the first couple reads.
Phew. Just writing this is cathartic.
