Let's make unwarranted assumptions about our scores today!

Postby MikeDicta » Tue Jun 08, 2010 12:48 am

I'm a super-optimist, but it isn't so super, nor unreasonably optimistic, to think that I got 166 based on a few factors which I needn't go in to--for these purposes.

Let's be optimistic, no?

C'mon.

Based on your preparatory scores, and based on how you felt today, share your thoughts.

I really hope you felt well and that you did as well as you're capable of doing.

(Editorial note: I'm hammered; excuse the previous typo)

After the test I was miserable and almost in tears. I panicked during LG, didn't have time to check my answers during one LR, and had weird answers (too many three in a rows) on the last LR.

I thought I was screwed and was considering canceling for a second time.

After coming to this forum, I realize that I still did bad during LG but not as bad as I had thought. The LR I didn't check was the experimental, and a whole bunch of people had too many three in a rows. So I feel much more confident about this test now.

I just hope that this test is about where I was testing in my PTs. Even two or three points below and not five or six like it was the first time I took this test.

Felt like just another PT to me so I am going to say 166 as that is my PT average.

Hey-o, if it makes you feel any better, lots of TLS'ers and other folks are reporting highly irregular answer patterns.

YMMV...

On my PT's I was scoring in the 170's, but I'm predicting a dismal 162 on the real deal. Stupid LG...

This June 2010 was my first actual exam, and after spending much time taking PTs, and examining and critiquing the most recent test, I found that this test, especially the logic games was much more difficult than i am used to seeing or expecting. I normally expect and equal distribution of difficulty amongst the games, but that definitely was not the case today. Games are usually my strong point, averaging out to only 3 wrong at most. Something just did not seem usual about this exam. I found it to be much more difficult. October here i come..

On a December 2009 - 177 (PT) (plus I did all sections in 33 minutes instead of 35)... thought it was so easy, could not believe the great curve. So I had really good feeling about it coming in. I think I did pretty well on all sections but one.. I finished both LRs with time to spare so had some time to check my answers. RC was not too bad, finished it on time as well.

Got killed by interns in games so I expect I missed 6 or more on LG alone. Assumming I missed 3 or so other questions and a moderate curve I gotto think 170-172. Maybe alittle less, but hope not less than 170 since its my first score. I was shooting for 175+... October here I come for my last flyby... as the circle comes around.

I felt like I spent this whole test just scrambling to stay on top of my timing. Was not expecting this given how hard I had studied.

Well I know that I got a perfect score on the writing sample, so I'm pretty stoked about that.

In all honesty, I'd be stunned if I hit my best of all worlds target, but I'd also be shocked if I fell well out of my normal zone.

(Though I am actually encouraged by some of the reactions here, maybe this was a slightly tougher test (as I had been hoping it might be) and the curve might be 11 or 12. That said, the thing that really blew me away was when I noticed out of the corner of my eye that the person sitting next to me EEEEEE'd her way through the last 5=10 Q's on at least 2 sections. Suddenly I wasn't so freaked out over my performance. There are a lot of people who probably struggled far more with this test than I ever realized.)

well, I did a 180 on september 2009, and a 178 on the december 2009 preptests. I'm predicting a 174 on this, which will suck for me.

i guess some one is really getting into the mind set of law school.. I am still sticking with that this test definitely came off a bit tougher than i am used to seeing on the previous recent exams.

Initially I was thinking that I got a 170+. But now I am dropping my expected score to 168...which will mean a retake in October.

So a lot of people literally had no answers on the left side (A&B) of the last LR section? I had like 2 A's and 2 B's at most (in the beginning and end too), so the A and B column was a big white empty space.

I also had like 4 ansewrs in a row at some point on that section. I finished each page with a good amount of confidence, but it dropped each time i transferred the answers to the sheet

It seems like LG screwed a lot of people on this one.

If I were one of the evil geniuses putting together the LSAT, I would so put like five questions in a row the same answer just to freak out people like this. I think it's a complete fail at logical reasoning to get psyched out by too many A's in a row.

Me too and it freaked me out a bit, but I didn't change any answers. I really wish I would have taken the December 2009 exam in actuality, because I took that PT last Saturday and rocked it into the 170s. This one, I would faint if I found out I got a 170+.

I've recently been PTing around 176-180, but I usually get -0, occasionally -1 for a stupid mistake LG sections, normally they are my favorite, but I'm with those who thought yesterday's LG section was brutal. Not so much the mulch q, I was fine with that, but the damn travel writing interns, man. Killed me. I'm expecting a 172, 173. If that.

Screw you, travel writing interns.

I was hoping for a 160 + but the last game effed me and the last RC passage I didn't have time for so I am guessing 155-160 with a prayer for a 159 :lol:

I thought the Chicano acting troupe was pretty straightforward. I don't know what the fuck the legal one was about, however.
