Hey, Jenny Jenny--

You need to chill chill.

Have a f-ing beer and get over yourself.

The LSAC doesn't award extra points for tattling, hon.

I had the argument prompt, and basically said the same things as everyone else.

I also said that the editorialist assumes that the bank's primary goal can be accurately assessed merely by observing its policy decisions.

Studying for the LSAT / To cancel or not to cancel? HELP--please!

Heeeeeey folks.

I'd appreciate some feedback on my dilemma. Here's the deal:

I took the Kaplan course and did pretty well. I studied my ass off outside class, improved my LG performance by about 25%, and by the last PrepTest, I was consistently missing only 1 or 2 RC questions and about 3 or 4 LR questions (total). My highest score was a 172, and my average was about a 170.

On Monday, I tried to calm my nerves by acting confident (and dancing to some power pop a'la 38 Special and The Cars). However, I was totally unprepared for the nervousness that hit me as I entered the first LR section. I never had timing issues on my PrepTests, but this time it was different. I let myself get bogged down on several questions because I was so damn nervous. Granted, the first LR section was experimental...but the same held true (to a lesser degree) for the first scored LR and the RC. I guessed for about 3 or 4 in both sections because I ran out of time.

My question is...should I cancel? My GPA is pretty low, so I've been banking on a good score. And it kills me to think that I didn't perform to my fullest potential. But then again, I don't know if I'd be any less nervous come September. Also, I am constantly shortchanging myself-- I thought I TOTALLY bombed my first diagnostic, and I got a 161. I go to UVA, I'm a double major, and I have solid recommenders. I'm also planning on submitting an addendum regarding my GPA, for which I have a pretty legit explanation. Still, I'm counting on a good LSAT score. My question is...if you were me, would you cancel?


Actually, UVA prefers Virginia resident-- about 41 of last year's incoming class (out of 300-something) went to UVA undergrad alone...not even including other Virginia schools.

I'm currently a rising fourth-year at UVA, and several of my "double-HOO" friends (UVA undergrad--> law school) have confirmed this.

Just when I thought I would never have to think about science ever again...

The LSAT comes along and socks it to me with all of this photosynthesis bull.

Give an English major a break, already!
