Unless LSAC changed up a decade of tradition, the experimental would be in the first three sections.


Ya and section 3's the only one that has questions that not everyone got :?

RC: Section 1 was experimental for me.

My order (RC (exp.) LR LG LR RC)

Did most people have an experimental LR?

Anyone with 2LR sections REMEMBER the Shrimp Farmers Question in LR section? It was like towards the end i think and it was the 3rd section for me. I think there was a question after that about some parallel reasoning question that involved Wages and something...

I had LR-LG-LR-RC-LR

oh yeah, i bombed the first LR, and I had the LG second which lowered my confidence even more...I was thinking about leaving during the 3rd section cuz I was so crushed.

I sort of wish it was section 5 (LR LG LR RC LR), since that damn nectarines question was impossible.

However, I seem to recall a question format I had never seen before in section three (something like "what would rebut " with a series of questions). Anyone else remember a wonky question or two there?

And for the record, I also had iron/ magnet as question 1, section one, though I seem to recall the otters being in that section.

Also, no dinos or laws here.

I only had 2 LR sections (my experimental was RC) so maybe this will help you guys narrow it down a bit.

Some question topics I remember:
ring around black hole, iron/magnet, seal (otter?) rehab, bus driver, orange/peppermint insomniacs, one weird one with questions as answer choices

Some that have been mentioned that I don't remember:
dinosaurs, state bills, physics teacher guitar string

Thanks, this is helpful. For me it has to be the 3rd section 2nd LR at this point.

If my memory serves me correctly (which I'm not so confident it will right now) I think that black hole question was in Section 3 (2nd LR section) because I remember waiting for the break (and for some reason really struggling with this question).

I thought reading comp was WAY easier than the Dec. 09 practice test. what the heck was up with that damn LG section? URGH..

I wish the LR section after the break was the experimental. Lost focus on that totally.

I too had LR LG LR RC LR.

First LR dealt with Iron/Magnet.

Second LR (3rd section) dealt with Otters.

Last LR, it would be almost groundbreaking if the 5th section was experimental. The vast majority of the time, the experimental is within the first 3 sections. Why? Because the LSAC rewards for endurance/making it to the end and they score those sections. (this is what the Kaplan professors used to tell me all the time when I took them 2 years ago.)

I think that people with the LR LG LR RC LR test can say with pretty decent certainty, that the 2nd LR (section 3) was the experimental.

Thoughts?

The 2nd LR was the experimental unless LSAC gave people with LR LG LR RC LR different sections.

anyone want to help piece things together?
anyone not have the otters and oil question?


I had all of those questions--you're talking about the same test.

I had LR LG LR RC LR

the dead otters, bus driver were on section one for me.

Mammals, state bills were my third section.

I had LR LG LR RC LR - WS

iron - magnet was the first question in my first LR section

oil and otter, I thought, was in my second LR (but I could be mistaking)

I believe I had a question in my last LR about mushrooms and cancer - anyone remember something similar?

(BTW - how tough was that LG section? Two girls literally burst into tears during the section. And anyone else do the Ortega family vacation for the writing sample?)

Remember everything you're talking about.

We had the same format test. Yep, Country 2 was my choice :)

Kiss the T14 goodbye if you selected Country 2. Most schools will see that and just throw out your application.

Wasn't that experimental RC really easy? I was praying it was the real deal.

Wooooaaaah there, gonna disagree with you on that one. (Registered just to respond to this.)

Country 1 seemed like a pretty clear red herring to me. The Ortegas wanted their vacation to be "worthwhile" -- having a little trouble seeing what's so worthwhile about going somewhere half the family's already been to, to see something that they'll barely be able to see. Sure the political state of Country 2 is a deterrent, but it's really easy to spin into something good (affords the family a better understanding of world issues, etc).

(If this is too much detail, let me know -- I assume detail doesn't matter much on this section since it's not based in anything you can really cheat on.)
