Having completed the LSAT on Sept. 30th, you'd figure that the only thing still associated with the test would be your score. However, I am finding it very annoying to function as a "regular" person after studying for months. I honestly will read the newspaper or other articles and start breaking down the conclusion, main idea, topic, scope, etc. If I see words like "unless" in a sentence... my brain automatically thinks "only if" and negates the other part of the sentence. Its really creepy and I need to stop, but my mind is still in LSAT mode. Ahhhhhhhhhh.

I feel the same way!  :D

I'm going through some kind of withdrawal right now.  :-\

I'M definitely going through LSAT withdraw.  And I'm 100% there with you on having lost the ability to have a regular conversation full of unwarranted assumptions.

I agree with all above but I find some added bonuses.  I feel like all the time spent with RC passages has really increased my overall rate of comprehension.  When I ready magazine articles/essays/news I find that I am retaining a lot more of the little details and finer points.  I also feel like I've learned to really pick apart people's bulls**t at a much faster rate by immediately identifying faulty logic.  Overall, I'm better off for having done it!

Two questions.

1.  Why would you be a regular person?

2.  Why wouldn't you want to read critically?
Especially Lex, whom everyone knows is one of the biggest flame/trolls on LSD.

I tell my wife which commercials would make good LR passages. She hates it, but I canít stop.

the word 'unless' always makes me cringe now
