Anyone else get a sick sense of enjoyment watching the fresh meat on TLS panic over their impending LSAT scores?

So glad it's not me.
I'm in a lynch mob?  I had no idea.  This is really worrying; I really don't have time for another extra-curricular activity.

They seem to get worse with each test.

Yes, they definitely do.  So glad I'm done with that, but I'm still ashamed over how badly I was freaking out that day.

I can understand freaking out a bit leading up to taking the test, but freaking out while waiting a few hours for the score is weak sauce.  Anyone that prepped and practiced decently well should have a pretty good idea, within a few points, of how they did.  I'm always baffled by the people who end up with a score ~10 points lower than their claimed practice test average who also thought they did really well after the test.

its worse i think because they dont have the illusion of a stable economy, so every point will make a difference; and they know it.

I'm fairly certain that these people "practiced" by leisurely going through sections.  Maybe they even timed them, but took long breaks in between.  When my friend was PTing, she was in the mid-170s and ended with a 166.  Even she admitted that her practice sessions were pretty much BS and weren't a good gauge of where she'd end up.

So true.

Did anyone see what the curve was on that test? -12 for a 170 and there was even a removed question. I wonder if it's the hordes of underprepared "ZOMG I CAN'T FIND A JOB WITH MY LEISURE AND RECREATION STUDIES DEGREE!!!!!!!!!111111111111Q!?/" people who are making it easier for those who prepped?

True, but the difference between a 168 and 171 is huge nowadays.

True. I honestly didn't feel any different between my first and second test, even though there was a 5 pt. difference. And, I'm sure those 5 points made a difference in where I ended up.

I thought I did just as badly on #3 (+9) as 1 and 2 .  Goes to show you perceptions are totally whacked when it comes to these things.

And I'm totally LOLing over the L & R degree... (and glad I ended up where I'm at...)

A friend of mine was telling the other day she spent all day at work on TLS. But luckily she realized that most of them are freaking out way too much.

Putting together my bid list for EIP. Taking condolences/words of sympathy or empathy/commiseration.
