down to the wire
I'm officially taking the LSAT in 6 days (5 if you don't count today, 4 if you don't count today or Monday, the day I take the test, but who's counting?). I feel pretty good about it, especially after my last diagnostic, on which I got a 161. That definitely made me feel a bit more confident. And I heard that Testmasters
students* tend to go up about 5 points on the real test from their highest diag. That would be freakin awesome since it would put me at a 166. That's almost high enough for my score to qualify as a partial tuition gift certificate. Anyway, the point is that I'm very happy with my score, but I'd be lying if I said that I'm not totally freaked out about taking the test on Monday. Unfortunately I have to deal with the reality that if I want to be a lawyer I have to deal with the fact that this test sort of determines which school it is that makes me a lawyer. I'm freaking myself out even more just writing about this. I gotta go.
*Usually I wouldn't be pushing the Testmasters program, but honestly, if you need to take an LSAT prep course, take this one. The method they use is amazing and I've gone up 9 points since my first diag and if I actually do go up another 5 on the actual test, well then that's a 14 point difference. Definitely worth the $1250 (that my parents spent because I am poor).
*hates on the sat*
i did damn well on the written part of the sat's but bombed the math portion like heroshima. as a result my score sucked bad.
otherwise i would prolly be at college right now.
