I’ve read that taking this practice test to begin my studying is a great way to track my progress of learning, as well as to show my current strengths and weakness. However, by taking this test and doing poorly, I feared that I would feel worthless and too stupid for law school. One of my favorite LSAT Blog’s said it best:
“We’ve seen our students turn a first practice exam into a measure of self worth or, equally disturbing, believe it to provide a range past which their score cannot increase.” via
Doesn’t that sound intense??
Over the past few days I have been thinking and praying about taking this practice test, and the one verse that keeps popping up in my head is this:
2 Timothy 1:2 NKJV
Last night I jumped into the practice test and almost drowned. At one point I felt like it’d be a miracle if I even got one question right. Well, I did get way more than one right, but my score was nowhere near where it needs to be. However, I do feel tons better after finally tackling my first practice test. I know what areas I need to study and what to expect.
I feel a bit overwhelmed and a part of me thinks that this is going to be way too hard. BUT, in the words of Tom Hanks in A League of Their Own, “It’s supposed to be hard. If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. The hard…is what makes it great” Now, I know he’s talking about baseball, but still. This is one of my faves and I agree with him, and I’m in this for the long haul.
