.....OK Not really, but this LSAT thing is getting me really down and depressed. I keep getting quips about how learnable the test is and how I can learn from the mistakes, but the only thing I am "learning" is that my answers ARE mistakes. Is there going to be some "spiritual enlightenment type moment" where every question will make sense? I look over each question and see why its correct but I don't see why my answer is incorrect. I know that there is more to life than law school, but it is something I want to do and I am hating the fact that ONE stinken test is keeping me from a quality job. Why is everyone here making leaps and bounds on their scores or claiming that "if they had a couple of straight months time, they could hit a 180" and I am stuck in this "black hole" of 150 (or worse). Ugh, I sucked on the SAT and ACT but did well in college and people keep telling me I have the qualities of a good lawyer (I would also like to think that I have a good personality but thats a different issue), but these people keep thinking that the LSAT should be a no brainer for me. And what sucks even worse is when I am in my Princeton Review class and the teacher tells us what we SHOULD have gotten (or in layman's terms: where only a stupid idiot would pick something else) and I choose a different answer than everyone else in the room. It's like this whole test (except games, for some God only knows reason, I am actually better in this section) is in a different foreign language. OK, well this concludes my "2:30 AM LSAT rant," I'm going to go to bed before I go try looking for a bridge and seek out a "It's a Wonderful Life" Christmas special moment. Please continue with your "I suck because I made a 170 LSAT and received one fee waiver from W&L" comments and the belittling comments against the Cooleys and other unworthy schools of law (or my future law school, as I so often like to refer to). I am going to continue practicing and re-examing each test and just pray because there is no way that I am going to get anything higher than a 150 in October at this rate.
