Studying for the LSAT / Re: Energy Drink for the LSAT: Yes or No?

Why change your routine?

Because you don't take a 3-4 hour exam like the LSAT everyday.

Be careful with the sleeping aids, it's difficult to find one that doesn't give you a hangover the next day.

If you like herbal supplements, there is valerian root (tea, capsules).  Unnatural but mild- Tylenol PM. 

There was an admissions officer who made a comment in Montauk's book saying that either you can allow them to come to whatever conclusion they wish or you can tell them what happened.  It's better to guide their interpretation, especially if you have a plausible explanation.

3/4 Red Bull 1 hr before exam, 3/4 Red Bull during break.  Works wonders.

What did you do with the left over half? 

Haha.  I actually just threw it away.  That was my first day trying energy drinks and I didn't want to overdo it or have to go to the washroom.  All I know is that it made me 1) more alert 2) energized.  It worked because I never drink coffee and have little tolerance for caffeine.  Oh and a previous poster was talking about confidence which I now think is the most important factor contributing to scoring well on the LSAT.

Withj: I've been meaning to tell you congratulations!  You must have felt such relief upon seeing your score, which you were fretting about since Feb. :)  Great job!  And good call not canceling.

Do you think that even if you don't get in, you will have a chance at being waitlisted?  If so, retaking in June could be useful.  And since you KNOW you are capable of a higher score, you can be reasonably certain that you will improve.

Hey- this is a thread for all test takers who feel that a little angel/supreme entity was watching over you on Feb. 12 and are happy with their scores. 

CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU.  I love everyone right now and probably will for the next 48 hours. 



Words coming to my mind: groupthink, herd mentality, unity under distress. 

And to think we were once individuals.  I say BLAME LSAC with their God complex.  I renounce the control they have over me and will now only check my email account twice every hour. 

LSAC already gets $115 for each person who takes the test. They're swimming in dough. I bet they even throw hundred dollar bills up in the air and laugh, just for fun.

Darn sadistic lawyers!!!!  Drawn out pain is the worst.  If you're going to crush my hopes and sentence me to a life of misery, do it quickly I beg you.

Hey everyone, while you're waiting, do something constructive and check out this site.

Insecurity, stress and competitiveness.  First we have to worry about getting into the "right" law school.  Then, we have to excel at that school so that we can get the cream jobs and make partner (well, for some of us).  We're a bunch of risk averse people who dislike uncertainty and this uncertainty is all we have in front of us for a very long time.

Law School Admissions / Re: Transfer GPA calculated ??

Great thread.  Clarification question: Do law schools use the LSAC cumulative GPA?  And is this what is reported to US News, etc.?
