"Stars" fucked with me too.

Not going to go into more detail because this security bot is freaking me out :P

I managed to cut out three i'm pretty sure it couldn't be. felt better than 50/50 on the one i picked but who knows

So what you're saying is that my first LSAT was the hardest one ever administered? :(



Its certainly the hardest games section i think ive seen.


if it was worse than the old-skool beakers game i would have broken down

doesn't mean there hasn't been a -4 180 before. i would have no idea where to look for that information, though.



I am not full of bullshit. Check it out: http://www.alpha-score.com/resources/ls ... onversion/

-4 180 baby. If they dropped one, so what.

I have taken every PT available, therefore I have done all the games. I have never had a games section trip me up as much as this one. I truly cannot remember two games as hard as the stained glass and conferences + a restricted workspace game in any of the PTs. They were so hard they were almost unfair.

Edit: stained was not as tough as dinos but the conferences game definitely was.

the test is getting more difficult. The curve will probably be -14 at most. Perhaps LSAC decided to put the exp after the break??? just to mess with everyone?

Before you start overthinking the cancel or keep remember this: TLS people have been prepping more than the norm. A lot of people in october thought they got pwned by LG or RC, and ended up doing their average or better. Dont over react now that you have plenty of time to think about it. Its not the end of the world. There is always February or june. I would gess that the majority of people will score within their pt ranges.

FUCK a stained glass window.

Gawd.

I pwn'd the experimental games during section 3, and since I could sort of see through the page and the first page of section 4 went was FULL of text, I totally thought that it was RC. Nope. Motherfucking LG. Not enough room to write on the first game, hard-ass games 2 and 3. Just. Wow. If the curve is -14, I Maybe have a shot at 170. Otherwise, I am seriously fucked (and not in a fun way).

Goddamn you, LSAC. :cry:

I went -0 on dinos in 8 minutes. There were two games on this LSAT that would have taken me 12 minutes to complete, hence why I had to guess on 5 on one of them.

took the october test and was disappointed so i took again today and I got to say I am feeling very good right now, RC was pretty straightforward, LR was a breeze, the games were hard but I know i got 2 right for sure and i got half of another right, just from this section alone i should improve because on the oct test i bombed the games completely

best of luck to everybody

My feelings, too. Difficulty =/= curve, especially considering how these past few tests have been trending.

Get high --> take the LSAT high --> score high marks?


The flaw in the argument is that you have allowed a key term to shift illicitly in meaning

Although I wish this were true, we have absolutely ruled this out ITT.

i thought most people in that order had the real rc 3rd. does it vary?
