Well I actually don't know anyone taking the test in my city, so I don't have much of a choice. But, I am willing to invite out the other test takers at my center :) its a small enough place, if I don't I'll probably see them out anyway :D

blueskies' LSAT test center:

That would be an amazing new avatar. Hint hint, blueskies.


 :D :D :D :D :D

Thanks guys.  I honestly feel that's what it'll be like.  Especially the proctor...this is Kentucky.

Tim, would you please not steal pics from my facebook account and put them up on here?? Next time you do that, I'll block you.

I've been satisfied with my practice scores, though today I took 2 and on the first one I misbubbled so badly that I lost 21 raw points (all correctly circled in the booklet), bringing my score down by 16. I'm really hoping something like that doesn't happen on test day, but I think it's unlikely I would miss something like that on the real thing...**crossing fingers**

I took what I believe to be my 9th PT today and scored 170, my best showing yet. My previous average was 165. I made improvements in RC by making more notes as I read (22/27), and in LR by doing the same (45/49). I aced 3 of the 4 logic games, but the 4th one kicked my bottom. I was only sure of 1 of the 6 questions (which I misbubbled, my ONLY misbubble to date, can you say ironic?!), so I guessed on the other 5. Amazingly, 3 of my guesses turned out to be correct, so I did much better than I thought (21/24). Raw score=88, shooting for 90+.

I'm entering "The Zone," and I have 2 more PTs to get there...plus a couple extra logic games to expand my mind. I feel like a Marathon runner 10 days before the big race...

I feel like I'm coming down with something today.

It may be the weather... at least I'm hoping it isn't viral.

Wow, you are like my Canadian half or something, because I had the beginnings of a sore throat last night and it's really hurting today. I don't feel 100% sick but worry it'll blow up into something bigger.

Who knows what sort of third world diseases are floating around Canada.  Is there a good witch doctor or voodoo priest you can see?

There are plenty.

Unfortunately I don't have the advantage of you yanks with televangelists, methodist/baptist churches (and other made up religions) and George Bush to ward off disease.

The only people who get sick in this country are aethiests and abortionists.  No wonder the lefties all want socialized medicine.

Your right wing impression was pretty good PJC, we all know you're a lefty though... putting your post in the quote accidently was a nice touch tough  ;)

I'm really not a liberal.  I find both parties very distasteful.  I'd vote libertarian if i didn't find them repugnant as well.

I independently analyze each issue.

What?! C'mon, this is the country of blind partisan politics

You can hardly deem a two party system as "partisan".

I don't know why Americans insist on believing that their country is truly democratic.

What do you define as "truly democratic"?  Direct democracy?

Given you guys still had a monarch until recently, I can understand your confusion, though.

I struggle to see why Canadians have the urge to criticize america whenever they are given the chance.  Sadly, it seems that Canadian identity is often solely established by delineating their differences with america. It seems as if america were to vanish, canadians would have little identity of their own. 

(I actually wrote a paper that detailed how New Zealand and Canada both suffer from inferiority complexes. The former to Australia and the latter to the States.)  Overall, its really just sad.
