Well, I finally did it. On Saturday, February 8th I tackled the LSAT!
It was a beast of a test and definitely lived up to the hype. I arrived at Charlotte School of Law at 8:00AM on a cloudy and cold morning, and poured everything I had into the insane questions. I’m not allowed to say much about the test itself (LSAC rules), but it lasted until 1:00PM. From what I’ve read online and heard from other test takers, we all agree that this test was incredibly difficult. I’m praying for a lenient curve, and hoping that I scored well enough to solidify my acceptance into law school.
Back in 2010 when the dream of law school first entered my mind, I wanted to pull an Elle Woods and score a 179. (180 is a perfect score… and FYI — that’s pretty freaking rare!) At this point, I just need to get in! I am 100% certain that becoming an attorney is my calling and no longer need to score that high to prove to myself that I’m good enough to follow my dreams.
I prepared for this test with Blueprint Prep‘s online movie. I highly recommend them, and know that if I would have had more time my score would have probably increased even more than it did. (It increased 10 points in ONE month!) While I decided to take this test back in October 2013, I had only begun studying at the beginning of January. Having two littles under the age of two made studying pretty difficult, and I would often feel guilty for spending so much time with my nose in a book. But it was only for a month, so I did it. And while I wish I would have had more time, I feel like my preparation was sufficient. As much as the LSAT stressed me out, I think I’m going to actually miss studying. Hahaha.
After taking a 3 hour nap. The LSAT kicked my butt!

I want to say thanks to everyone who said a prayer for me. And thanks to my amazing husband for all of his love and support. (I love you, mais!) I was super nervous in the days leading up to the LSAT, but on test day I was strangely calm. I felt His presence just like I did during my natural births, and I know that no matter what happens, His Will will be done.
I’ve literally played this song 100 times this week and really meditated on the lyrics. God is truly amazing.
