I love this thread, thanks guys! I cried myself to sleep last night, cried this morning when I woke up and now I think I'm all cried out.  (I think). 

It's good to have a support system! We'll rock it out the next time.   :-*

RobinSinghsDaddy is very wise.  Everyone should reread his post.

Yes he is...

Reread his post folks...

Life is all about perspective.  Don't believe me?

Watch this video...

If it is not there, then Google "Team Hoyt"

What a story!

I hope this helps someone keep the LSAT in the right perspective.

I already posted thie on another thread, but I wanted to make sure my fellow "bobmbers" gave me advice so here it is:

heres the deal, I spent the last 6 months of my life doing serious LSAT studying.  5 days a week, 4 hours a day, I have done both Bibles, the powerscore weekend class and the last 30 preptests.  I scored a 145, I am crushed.  I want to go to LS for the fall of '07, I have reisigned myself to the fact that I will go to a T4 school.  My problem lies in the fact that I have a 2.41 UGPA, with a 3.7 in my last 2 years of undergrad.  On the upside I have an MA, and strong internship and volunteer community work, I am also 29, white and a male.  My question to you is should I just let my crummy LSAT roll right now with about 10 T4 schools?  Or am I too low?  Or should I take in Feb?  But isnt this too late to apply for this year? HELP?!?

Dino - I'm not sure what your chances are with your current LSAT score, but in case it helps my gpa is not a whole lot better then yours and I'm taking the LSAT in Feb.  I really want to go to school in 2007 so I need to try.
How were you doing on your practice tests?  Were they significantly higher?  If so, maybe it was just nerves like a lot of people here are saying...

Next time try to take  like 4 test with a proctor. The proctors for some reason make  me nervous and effect my score.

Butterz, I second that motion. Like 2 seconds ago I was just saying to my g'friend how much I hate these people who come on here and talk like their world is ending b/c they scored a 167

They annoy me too - I just got mad at someone in another thread who asked whether it was too late for him to apply to schools with a 4.0/178, maybe it was a flame. 

Dino - if you've been scoring in the 150s on your PTs then I see no reason to accept your score...why not apply and make a note that you will be retaking in Feb??

I am so glad that we all have each other to relate to.  I have some people that are telling me to apply with my suck ass score, but there's no way I am going to do that because I KNOW that I can do better.  I had friends that took it who barely studied and basically are stupid and they scored higher than me.  I need to learn how to control my nerves during the real test and I should be fine.  I think there is still hope for us to get in for Fall of 07.
