I took the LSAT for the last and final time Saturday morning. I was surprisingly calm. It was the most calm I think I have ever been for a standardized test, and in the end it gave me a great confident feeling. I definitely feel different this time about the test. I feel like I did better. I hope to see AT LEAST a 6 point improvement, but at this point, I’ll take any improvement I can get.
I’m not going to rehash the whole experience but I will highlight some things I do remember. The logic games massacred me as far as pacing myself went. I didn’t find them hard at all, but I just spent too much damn time on the first two games, scrambled on the third game and couldn’t get to anything other than the first question on the fourth. I finished the first logic reasoning section completely and felt good. I finished the second logic reasoning section except for the last 3 questions, but I was able to make educated guesses at least. The reading comp went fairly well. There was a passage on a sculptor that had the most vague questions I’ve ever seen in an LSAT reading comp. I only got to the first question on the fourth passage after skimming the passage due to time. It only had five questions, but it seemed easier than the one I spent so much time on so I was a little angry I didn’t have time to get to it. However, I felt pretty good about the passages I did get to.
All in all, the experience was better. I didn’t have a mind freak out when I first started…instead I was focused (for the most part) and more calm then I’ve ever been in my life. I really am hoping and praying it reflects in my score.
Regardless, all of my applications are going to go out this month and then it will just be waiting and hoping.
In the meantime, Dan and I booked a 9-day trip to Chicago, I’m going to an Owl City concert with friends at the beginning of February and I finally get to embrace the wide world of wedding planning. I have much to look forward to. Cheers!
