It's hilarious how I felt pretty decent right after taking the LSAT, but now after looking around this website I am feeling crappy - hah. I haven't even looked at all of your predictions for the 'credited responses' since I barely remember any of the questions/answers and I don't want to freak myself out for nothing.
Does anyone else feel like they are happily going along w/ life now, but then they remember the LSAT and get unhappy/nervous all of a sudden. I thought I'd be so thrilled to be finished (and I am), but now I'm just nervous about getting my score ... and it isn't like there is anything I can do about it (like study - lol).
Here is my deal - I took the PR class and my scores ranged from about 155-161 on the diagnostics - I was always just so frickin' inconsistent. I keep feeling like I may have done worse on the real test ... like a 153
I dunno ... I just didn't do as well as I should have on the games (I just couldn't get good deductions on the last 2 and I know that the reading comp. was hard, but I can never really tell how I'm doing on that - I did them out of order and I did the 3 long ones first then guess/rushed on short mexican one) Although who knows - I could be surprised with a higher score (pleeease!) I'm just not sure what I will do. If I randomly totally BOMB (under a 150), I will probably halt applications and retake in December (even though the thought of more studying and retaking the test seriously makes me want to scream and cry!)
Basically, I'm just not sure what to do if I get like ... a 151-155 ... I mean, I KNOW that I COULD do better than that ... I was pretty nervous/stressed for the test (and got about 2 hours of sleep the night before), but I really don't want to take it again. I am perfectly happy attending a tier 3 or 4 school (I am strongly considering Northern Kentucky (Chase) and University of Dayton - I've heard their admissions people speak and they seem really serious and positive about their schools and I know people who have gone to these schools, graduated, and are successful) ... but I'm nervous that I won't get into ANY school with a low-ish 150's score. I really hope all this fretting is for nothing, but ugh ... I just want to have a plan ... like a cut-off score that I will say "Ok, I got ___, now I am going to retake or now I am not going to retake."
I really want to go to the University of Cincinnati ... but their scores (on usnews) are 156-162 ... I really hope I fall into that range!
My GPA is a 3.86, btw. I hate feeling like I'm a really smart person and should be scoring higher on this stupid test, but I'm just ... not. blaaah. I should never have come to this website!
Any input? Expeiences?
