I just took the LSAT and I'm feeling pretty confident about it. The first three sections, I definitely just completely demolished, and the last two sections I think I did fairly well. The first three were two LR's and 1 LG - I think one of the LR was an experimental, but hey, it doesn't matter, they were just totally owned, both of which I finished, somehow, with more than 4 minutes to spare (which honestly never happened to me before). The LG section was just totally wrecked - I finished it with around 3 minutes left and checked the questions where I wasn't too sure - all of which were okay after making sure the other answer choices were not acceptable, except one, where I changed the answer because after glancing at it, I quickly realized my mistake, and chose the other answer (where I was split in between the two). The first three sections were just mine.
The last two sections were LR and RC. The LR section was a little harder, but managed to finish with a minute to spare, and checked my answers on the last page to make sure they were okay. Although it was a little harder, I finished on time (which doesn't usually happen on the harder LR for me most of the times) and all in all, I was able to check the last page pretty adequately, and I think I did pretty well on the section.
RC was, like usual, the hardest section, but not only did I finish with several minutes to spare, I was able to quickly glance at my answers, which I wasn't sure of, and corrected one of them that I know was going to be wrong because I misinterpreted what the answer choice stated, and realized that mistake, and picked an answer I was pretty confident in, but again, wasn't too sure only because I wasn't able to quickly refer to the passage - they called time.
An the essay section.. well, it was a breeze. I used up all the space allotted and although I don't think my argument was as strong as it could've been if I just brainstormed my ideas earlier, I think it was good enough.
My biggest worries coming into the test was timing. Ultimately, when I was going through the sections, I realized I was the first to turn the page among my peers on every section and even realized I lapped several people in terms of the pages on the LG section.
I feel really good and I can't believe it's over. I can't stop myself to think: what if I mis-transferred my answers? what if the answers I thought were right were actually wrong? what if i misread the question stems?
But I realized I was pretty diligent about reading the question stems, and reading the answer choices, and if I were to make a mistake, there's honestly nothing I could do about it now.
I think this is the best I've performed yet, although I keep having doubts about my RC (can't help it - I just wanted more time to look over ALL my answers on it to be safe), but it was a great experience.
Thanks Dave for all your help. It means a lot - I stayed positive, and ultimately, I think I pulled through.
Your help was indispensable!
