I've been getting a few emails on how the LSAT went. Basically, it fried my brain. It fried my brain so much that as I was driving home I felt as if I was drunk. I was honestly worried about being pulled over and having to explain that I had not been drinking but rather had been wasting my brain away with logic problems. It's probably a really common mix up.
Beyond feeling wasted, it left me feeling worried. You see the hardest section for me and most LSAT takers came last of five sections. This killed me. Before opening my test book I had fingers crossed that it came first. I wanted my brain to be fresh. I wanted to get it out of the way. Mostly I wanted them to forget to put that section in my test book. That didn't happen. None of that happened. It came last. I wanted to cry. I really feel like I rocked the first four sections. In fact they felt beyond easy. I was like an LSAT pro. Then that last section came along and laughed at my confidence. It mocked my preparation. It devoured me whole. I'm pretty sure when all was said and done I completely bombed it. I left feeling humbled and dejected. I was scared.
Then I got my score back and low and behold I didn't totally suck! I mean, it wasn't what I'd hope, but I wasn't a total lack of space. I wasn't the Hooters Girl does law school joke. I got a decent 156. YAY! Yeah, I'd hopped for 160 or above, but 156 should get me into the law school here with my GPA. Hopefully. I'm still nervous as hell. I'm still curious what my score would have been had I not guessed on half of the logic games section. That is unfortunately something I will never know. That is lost to the gods of the LSATS for eternity. Now I just hope they let me into law school.
