You know you’ve studied for the LSAT when . . .

July 21, 2010 at 3:17 pm (LSAT Prep)

  • In a class lecture, when the professor makes an assumption without stating its premise that led to the assumed conclusion, you immediately try to search for the missing premise.
  • When speaking with your friends, if you open your mouth, touch your tongue to the top of your teeth (as if to make the “L” sound) your friends immediately turn away  . . . running.
  • As soon as you get your midterm/final/any large exam you disregard the letter grade and immediately question where you ranked percentile-wise within the class.
  • On a multiple choice test with answer choices A-D you panic because there is no “E” answer choice.
  • You remember random facts from reading comprehension passages and logical reasoning stimuli.  Usually, in the middle of the night.
  • You go through lsat practice test withdraw . . . and kind of miss the challenge of spending four hours taking a test hoping to have scored even just one point higher than your best.
  • You are certain you are actually a smarter thinker and process facts more critically post-lsat prep.
  • You realize you have no idea what’s on television because you haven’t turned it on in six months – and you’re too far behind now to catch up with Grey’s Anatomy/Desperate Housewives/The Good Wife!

    I’m starting to have nightmares about the stupid test. I can’t wait until the test is over and I never have to see a Logic Game ever again!

      Ha! I TOTALLY feel your pain! Let me know if I can be of help. So are you taking the lsat to prove a point to your boss (I think you mentioned it was a challenge) or will you be applying to law schools this fall? I can’t imagine going through this just for a bet. But then again, if money is involved ….
