Where did you take the test, so I can avoid it in the future?

Yes, I and GeePee are both logged in at the same time and posting, thus proving that we are in fact different users. Thank you for pointing that out.


You misunderstand. I was simply pointing out how silly and hypocritical it is to post a message on a board that essentially says, "Find something better to do than post on this board."

I don't think anyone is really too concerned about the difference in the ordering of everyone's sections. At the end of the day all that matters is the order on your test, no one else's. So I guess this is sort of irrelevant imo.

Talking intrasectional here, not the section ordering.

Last time I took the LSAT they had a Biology section, I was thinking 'what in the hell?! they really switched this test up in recent years! ' I wasn't even ready to answer questions about cellular respiration. Turns out I accidentally signed up for the MCAT, so actually the LSAT hasn't changed much at all. Still the same test, nothing too worry about!

Was it really common sense though? Because in order to answer the question you had to figure out which person would have incentive to write it in such a way....That was clearly spelled out in the question stem....

How would a medieval performer obtain a copy of waffles? You're making no sense.

Really? Am I really retarded for thinking that a performer playing a role in waffle making would have a copy of waffle making instructions? I got the obvious answer (it was the only one that made sense to me sans the instructions part), chose it, then said "wait, the writer could not have had waffle making instructions!"

He could have arrived at it by trial and error...although granted waffle irons were VERY scarce during the early 17th century, and trial and error would have MUCH more likely consumed all of the waffle irons that he could afford.

It's not silly and hypocritical in general, just while waiting for LSAT scores.

I'm pretty sure the message that was communicated was not "stop posting on this board" but instead "stop posting on this thread." There are many things on this board that are useful, such as admissions advice, personal statement critiques, answers to specific application questions, and more. "This test...is it a signal" at the point which I made that post was not one of those threads containing useful information, so I was encouraging people to go elsewhere.
