### Predict the October LSAT Curve

The exam was out of 101 questions (27 RC, 25 LR, 26 LR, 23 LG)

Definitely not as bad as June, I'd predict -11 at best.

### Re: Predict the October LSAT Curve

Id predict around the same; the logic games were pretty dang easy for setting up, took a little longer because some of the Q's took a little time

Umm what does this mean? Say, what does -11 mean? Is that the lowest for a 170 or what?

p.s. I didn't think it was overall that easy, although the games weren't especially hard. I thought LR sections were weirder than usual...

### Re: Predict the October LSAT Curve

The curve is the number of questions you can miss to get a 170.

And for what it's worth, I recall that after the June test lots of people were going on about how easy the test was, how it didn't compare in difficult to recent exams, how the curve was going to be very tight (plenty of -9 predictions, IIRC), etc etc. We ended up with a -12 curve out of 99 credited responses.

what is the last test with a -14 curve? It needs to be this one.

Can't be more than -10. Usually the LG defines the curve more than any other section. None of the LG on this test were insanely hard. One was basic. One was tricky. Another was moderate. The other was moderate also.

Never happens on LG. Happens maybe once every 3-4 tests on LR (it seems). I think I've seen it once or twice ever on RC (probably in part because the answers are more subjective by nature in RC).

Last game on pt60 was hard. The 2nd game was pretty long also.

Going with -11.

As compared to last 5 PTs (IMHO)

RC - overall about the same, passages easier, but Q's tougher
LR - slightly tougher than average
LG - easier than average (can't believe we got a basic linear on game 4, I thought those were deemed to damn easy by LSAC)

These threads are always pretty useless. That said, I predict -10.

### Re: Predict the October LSAT Curve

-10.

I wish it was more, but I think the test was easy. RC was a breeze, LG was nothing too special. LR had a little different feel to some of the questions than usual, but overall pretty standard. Compared to June it felt much better. Maybe its me who got better at the LSAT, but nevertheless I think the curve will be less.

This test felt so easy. I predict -9.

Anyone else have a hard time with LR 1 but ace LR 2 (don't get into specifics)?

Don't they go in different order for different tests? I felt LR1 was easier for me. Although maybe that's cuz I was a bit tired when I was doing LR2.

-10 at best. Too easy a test to be 11 or better.

Correct in that it's never happened on LG. Only 7 withdrawn questions on released exams. 5LRs, 2RCs. Here's a list.

Most recent -9 or less was Oct 08 (-9).

Lr 1 was harder for me than LR 2. I had LR1 as my first section and I hoped a little that it was experimental. (not that I thought it was suuuper hard, but I was nervous at the beginning so ..)

### Re: Predict the October LSAT Curve

I'm gonna say -11, just because I felt like this test was very similar to 58 (which also had a -11 scale). Both were relatively easy tests following particularly difficult June LSATs, in a time when there is a higher-than-usual number of people taking the LSAT due to the economy. The dynamics seem to be almost identical.
