I'm surprised by the amount of vitriol I've seen directed at the Mulch game (which initially struck me as on the easy side - I only saw four ways to set it up, which would have made it pretty doable, but is now really starting to scare me because all you guys are saying it was really hard), which means one of two things: I got really lucky and inferred the correct thing right off the bat, or my inference was completely incorrect and the score I thought I was headed for just took a nosedive.
Anyway, moving on, my thoughts: tough LG section (question #4 brought the overall level of the section up substantially... that one was rough), I though RC wasn't too bad, even with the comparative passages, which I had only seen once before from the free demo question on LSAC.org. None of my test books had any RC preps with the two-paper setup, I guess that's a relatively new thing also. Still, not too bad. Logical Reasoning is what it is. Bleh. Lots of questions. Not hard. Try not to let your brain go out of focus and you'll do fine. I had one LR section that was substantially more difficult, but I'm hoping it's just the experimental and I don't get graded on it (crosses fingers). I don't have a prediction on a curve or anything. Not enough info on how they're scored, whether the amount of kids taking it has any relation to the curve, etc. That would be interesting info to find out, though. If anyone has a link to a site that explains how LSAC grades this thing, I'd be happy to read it.
Personal opinion on the test as a whole: difficult test overall, not helped by our glacially-moving, disinterested, understaffed proctor team, who looked like you would need a taser and some high-grade amphetamines to get them moving at even normal human levels, and let's not forget our star: the barely-literate mic person! On that, <rant> - Seriously, LSAC?? English was obviously not her first language! Soooooo ... paiiiiinnnfully.... sllloooww in her reading, and every third word was a pronunciation correction. JUST GO, LADY! WE GOT PLACES TO GO AND PEOPLE TO SEE! I got home and called one of my friends who had taken the LSAT at Southwestern (in 15-person classrooms) who said that he was in and out in less than four hours. We were there for over 6 today. That's just bad time management on their part, although they couldn't really be blamed for the women's toilet situation at halftime, I suppose - that was another 20-25 extra minutes right there. </rant>
You know what they say about public restrooms, though...
So this is what I've been reduced to in studying for this test. Sigh. That one could have been worse, though.
Also, this is my first post here (Hi!), so if any this goes beyond the (somewhat cryptically explained) amount we're allowed to talk about the test, mods feel free to edit/move/delete as you see fit. I'm not trying to break any rules or divulge anything about the test. Just offering my overall feelings about it.
Good luck everyone. Try to enjoy the next few blissful weeks before reality comes crashing back in.
