I'll be 40 when I start school next fall. I quit my job prior to taking the LSAT because I wanted to really focus on prepartion. My mind had been corrupted by 15 years in the corporate world where constant interruptions and distractions combined with a 10 cup a day caffeine addiction had created a latent ADD type of problem for me. I could focus and perform well in short spurts, but I would get killed over the course of a complete LSAT.I quit the coffee, got in good physical shape, and did over 30 practice tests with the last 20 being striclty administered. Over the course of 6+ months preparation I improved my performance from low 150s to getting a 166 in October. Its really quite analogous to an athletes who develop rigorous practice regimens in an attempt to peak on race day, and a wholistic approach is most effective. Regardless of your age, the LSAT is so large a factor for admissions that it needs to be given appropriate respect, except by the rare geniuses who manage to ace the test cold. People that smart would probably be very bored in law school
Hi Lulu,Thanks for the kind comments. You're right, we don't know until we get the scores. Hopefully, they'll be good! Unlike before, I didn't get that warm, fuzzy feeling this time on the test (unlike the practice tests). The answers didn't jump out at me after I eliminated a few wrong responses. This happened most of the time. However, I finished eight applications before the test- only one more to go! Figuring that only 9% of applicants are 34 and older, (dare I write) we might have a good chance- even with a lousy score.Good luck to you too!Geezer
