Tips for self-care on test day

Hey everyone -- you've all been such awesome buddies as 7Sagers I thought I'd recommend something from my personal LSAT experience -- take headache meds or whatever you might need along those lines with you on test day.

In September I had a cold as I flew into Florida the day before the LSAT from where I live in Costa Rica and thanks to the pressure changes during the flight my cold erupted and I developed the most awful sinus headache during the LSAT and had no meds on me. So this time I'm flying into Florida tomorrow - a day earlier - in case anything needs to settle, and I'll have meds on me on test day just in case. Hopefully most of you are very local to a LSAT center but I thought I'd mention this in case it might be a useful heads up to someone!

Any other tips to share?

Best wishes to all you fellow hard workers and dreamers for Saturday! I'm really going to miss the 7Sage camaraderie.

    Make sure you wake up early enough to get a full meal for breakfast. Also, leave about 30 mins early due to traffic, events may be going on at your testing center. & just remain calmed and relaxed. Good luck everyone!

    Flying to another country, jdawg113! No test centers here in Costa Rica.

    Nilesh: good tips! Thanks for the link. Getting the hydration vs. desperate-for-the-restroom balance is important. My last test center was really s-l-o-w (e.g., handed out the test papers in the wrong order, so had to collect them back in, reorder them , and start again...). A couple test-takers couldn't make it through to the break and lost precious minutes on a restroom dash during the third test section.

    You're right, jdawg113. As Deputy Director of an American international school here and with the Director away, it's pushing it to leave as is. Hope you're relaxing -- about to wind down here... By the way, thanks for all your great contributions to discussions - reckon you've helped a lot of us.
