Common sense right? Last September I took the LSAT for the *ahem* third time . I studied for months, and a week before the day, I came down with the flu. Of course I thought I would be well by the time test day arrived. But,alas,still very sick. I'm sure you're all aware on how expensive the test is, so I went anyway. I was a mess through the whole thing. I ended up getting a 128. My lowest score.
That's what the lady told me--that I'd have to cancel if I used it. She let me have the trash can in case I couldn't make it to the bathroom. I assume she thought my using it would gross out and distract the other students, maybe even make some other kids start puking or something.
Related point: Don't vary your routine on test day. I foolishly decided that it was important to have a hardy breakfast on LSAT-day, and therefore ate a large meal right before the test (instead of the college quasi-meal I usually ate in the morning).I developed ... intestinal challenges in the middle of the exam, and had to make numerous bathroom, uh, runs. Thankfully, there is absolutely no time pressure at all for the LSAT, otherwise that might have been stressful.As one of the BARBRI guys says: this is not the time to make a change. Don't start doing drugs, but if you are already doing drugs don't stop now. Take up diet and exercise after the exam, not now. Stick to your routine.
