You won't.



they would make a whole new test even on a nondisclosed? it will be nex saturday, well so says the lsac rep i talked to..they must have extra tests or somethng


Yeah, the people who got snowed out in December took a completely different (undisclosed) test than the rest of us. LSAC has to be prepared for this kind of stuff; there is too much potential for irregularities if they gave you the same test.

If I had two LG and only the one reading I think my score might be in the 166 range, but given the turn of fate that hit me I think I'm more likely to get a 160. And man does it hurt. Should I cancel? I'm not interested in anything below top 30, and if I get below a 164-165 I'm certainly going to retake it.


man this is exactly how mine went. for whatever reason... this being my first sitting maybe... I froze in the first section LG and sucked. dominate LR, RC, LR and then BAM.... replaced my awesome RC with another fail. Did poorly cuz I really thought fate was going to give me another LG and then I realized with 30 seconds to spare I had bubbled 28 for 27 questions... never fixed them all. FML. I swore I'd never be a retaker.... now thoughts of cancel for the next few days


Yea this is how my test was too. I was hoping for another LG section so I could improve. It never came, except in my case I thought I did better on the second RC, that first one caused me to zone out quite a bit with the material they were discussing. It was tough to keep my head in the game, the second RC...I dunno I was just sharper after the break and I galvanized myself a bit. I finished it with like 2 min left, which aside from my LG which I ran out of time on, was the most time I used on the test.

That writing part is such a joke everyone in my testing room was done in no more that 20 min. We all just sat there for awhile looking like goons.

My order was: LG, LR, LG, LR, RC. The first logic games was significantly harder than the second and I froze it. If it isn't the experimental I'm in trouble. I thought the rest of it was pretty easy though.

I had 2 RC sections, both of which I found substantially easier than recent prior sections.

My sections were RC, LG, LR, RC, LR

Pretty sure section 1 was experimental, which is too bad because I found it pretty easy.

My order was LG, LR, LG, LR, RC. Of course, my nemisis LG was given twice. I wasted too much time on the dumb apartment/dog owner question. I found the LR (both sections) to be pretty easy. There were only one or two that threw me and I ended with a few minutes to spare. I don't know if that's a good thing or bad thing? I thought the RC passages weren't too bad but some of the questions were a bit tough.
This is my second time taking it. I took it Dec. 08' and it didn't go great. I was very stressed (family situations) and got no sleep the night before. I prepared pretty well this time and still feel like I didn't do very well on the LG but felt really good about the other parts.

I'll see if I can find it. I know what you are talking about... the old passage talked about visual displays in the courtroom reenacting crime scenes or whatever... this was was a little more specific. Interviews.


That one was 58, they are not similar at all.



This one was much easier than December, LR were easy/medium, Games medium, and RC easy. I imagine a brutal curve.

Same order here. While LG is my nemesis as well I am glad that I got it twice because it isn't as tiring as the other sections. Don't worry about the apartment/dog owner question..

That is not the one I'm referring to. And I don't know if the curve will be brutal. It seems a lot of people messed up on LG. The LR was easy for an experienced test taker, but I recognized many questions that were subtle enough to attract less experienced ones. Most takers I talked to had their RC passage in the second half, and they were probably tired while completing it. I imagine the curve will be -11, -12 or better. Although we'll never find out unless they publish this test down the road. Is there any support to the claim that since February contains a lot less test takers, and potentially less strong ones who wrote in earlier sittings, that the curve might be more forgiving?

It feels good to be done. SO good, that I decided to stop lurking and finally post on one of these boards. I took the test in NY, so it worked well that the snow wasn't an issue. I also took the test at the same institution I am going to for graduate school - if any future test takers have the option to do this IT TAKES A LOT OF MENTAL STRESS AWAY!

I thought the test played to my personal strengths; I used Nova, Powerscore LG and LR and made sure to "taper" the week leading up to it. I don't think I could have done any better on today than what I did, which is good.

Good luck to everyone, and let the nail biting begin! :oops:


It surely does feel better to be done. I didn't score my best, but it's still a good feeling. I'm looking forward to studying actual law instead of worrying about which piece of machinery some guys uses if his buddy uses a hammer on Tuesday or some such nonsense.

that was experimental, and possibly one of the easiest LG sections I've done in recent memory

From what I have heard the curves are set over 3 are so years based on experimentals, thus they don't really shift because of the real test.

Son. of. a. bitch.

Section 1 (RC for me) looks like the experimental one, and I would bet about $500 that I aced it. I feel like I missed 3-4 on the one that apparently counts.

C'est la vie...
