The LSAT Breakfast of Champions?

Ihop, Denny's, or a Bagel place are the only things in my area.

I would keep things as bland as possible. It may just be me (I've got a highly stress-reactive stomach) but the less you eat that could affect you in a way you don't want, the better you're going to be...you can keep your mind focused. Limit your liquid intake, especially caffeine too before the test. Way better to be a little thirsty during the test than have to pee halfway through section 2.

Yeah. If I go to IHop, I will likely just get a Club sandwich (I know it isn't breakfast food but it is what I like and know). The Bagel place will likely to be the most bland and easiest to do. Denny's no clue what I would get. I usually never go there.

I was considering having some caffeine in the morning to help myself wake up, but no? Does it really make you need to pee more than decaffeinated drinks?

@Tim: Jesus, I wouldn't eat that any day of the week, yet alone before a test. But a cig in between is something I expect to see for some people. Seems like a decent stress reliever. Too bad I don't smoke. haha.

Caffeine is a diuretic. The more concentrated you drink it, the more you'll have to pee as soon as your body processes the liquid. So a can of coke in the morning might not affect you, but a cup of coffee (or worse, 2-3) will make you have to pee like crazy right about when you open your book to start section 1. You're of course welcome to get up and pee (there is no rule about leaving the room as long as you have an escort), but you'll lose 3-5 minutes from the test.

Chances are if you're a coffee "addict", having a cup of decaf to fool your brain into thinking you got some via the taste factor will do the trick.

I had two cups of coffee before the LSAT and I did not have to pee urgently during the test.

One qualification: this was not immediately before the test, but only before. I tend to wake around 6:30.

I think I am going to design a penis sheath connected with tubing to a bottle tied to my leg. That way I don't have to worry about getting up and I don't have to look stupid in a diaper. lol.  ::)

Or you could look stupid with the obvious bottle attached to your leg.

Haha. I am not some emo tight pants wearing high schooler. And I wouldn't be wearing a large 2 liter bottle on the outside of my pants or anything. That would raise some eyebrows. A small bottle tied to your leg could easily be concealed beneath NORMALLY sized pants. And would easily help take that distracting edge off for the need to pee badly.

But I'm not so crazy as to actually go through with that idea.

Obvious indication of gender inequality when designing the LSAT. Women can't do this.

You have the option of adult depends :D. So you aren't entirely out of choices. haha.

Maybe it can be the new fashion for test taking.

I was planning on wearing sweats....no one would know!! (Until it starts to smell, of course. But that's everyone else's problem, and my advantage. Ha!)

I thought of that, then I remembered LSACs rules and requirements, one of which is you can't be a distraction to other test takers. So does that apply to emitting a foul stench that surrounds your general area and makes people gag?
