Freaking out...
« on: October 10, 2007, 04:11:39 PM »
All of sudden today, I thought "What if I screwed up bubbling in the questions, what if I skipped over a question by mistake and for the next one I bubbled in where I should have bubbled in the skipped question, then all the questions after that are out of place meaning I probably bombed the whole section because of one little stupid mistake?" I'm hoping I'm just being irrational, but has anyone else just started to think of stupid sh*t you might have done, no matter how irrational it may seem. I can't take this wait any longer.

I think that is a normal feeling at this point. The odds are you won't have any problems.

PennyLane invented sweet. She has the patent on it. I tried to act sweet one time and she sued me.

Haha, how can you expect anyone to get a grip at this point in the law school admissions process?? Waiting for your score is not exactly fun.

I know...

I'm not into one night stands but if I get a good score all bets are off  :P Good luck to any horny guy (or gal) at the bar!!!

I haven't figured out how I will celebrate a good score...I will most likely be at work when I get it, so I will probably jump up and down and make a scene in front of all my co-workers.

Regardless of my score, if it arrives while I'm at work, I'm going to fake an illness or emergency and call it a day!

I've been freaking out, too.  I'm not as worried about bubbling as I am worried I just screwed up in general.  I felt somewhat ok about my performance that day but it did feel like time was going very fast.  Now I keep thinking, what if I missed way more than I thought???  When the wiki was up it made me feel better but what if we're all just idiots?  teeheehee
To put it bluntly, I seem to have a whole superstructure with no foundation. But I`m working on the foundation.

For the sake of my score I hope you all are "just idiots."  Maybe it'll loosen up the curve a bit for me!!!

J/K (sort of).  I feel the same way you do.  I get so nervous i can't sleep at night, and it is really hard to focus on stuff during the day.  Needless to say I am not doing as well this semester as i had hoped!

I was at work the day that the June scores were expected to be released... needless to say I didn't get much done that day!

On the other hand, this semester I don't have any Friday classes--so I'm going to have all of next Friday to drive myself crazy refreshing my LSAC page. I'm not sure which is worse! :P
