Were there two different versions of the test with an extra RC? I had an experimental with the perfume one but no bebop, unless the post wine is affecting my short-term memory.

Everyone at LSAC must write in size 8 Times New Roman font. That's the only explanation for why they continue to give logic games WITH NO FUCKING SPACE TO WRITE!

Apparently so. I also had the perfume one but no bebop.

Just took the test and agree with most others. Games is always my best section and this test was absolutely brutal. I always finish games in time so I wasn't really thinking about time and didn't flip through to the fourth game. What a kick in the face when you get to the fourth game with no time left. On top of that I think I totally fucked 2 of the other 3 games and the only other easy game had no space to diagram so that wasted even more time. I kept thinking I was missing key inferences because no way they would have that much plug and chug on the test. Took way too much time trying to find these inferences that apparently didn't exist. What a mind fuck.

I only had one RC--no perfume or bebop.

I used to love stained glass windows. I even built the one for my front door. Now I hate them. I will forever hate them.

Do you mean three versions with an extra RC? Or three versions of the test total?

Not only does LSAC want to test our ability to read between the lines, but also write between them.

RC-LR-RC(Ex)-LG(What a bitch!)-LR

Overall, I thought my first LR section was fairly easy, second was on par with normal difficulty levels. I didn't have trouble with the RC but pretty much got buried alive by the Games.

Does anyone have any idea how this whole 102 question thing is going to impact scoring? Hopefully it somehow manages to be useful and/or is combined with a generous curve...

LR (26) If the test is out of 102 then I am screwed. This section was freaking hard and I got bogged down. Dammit!

RC (27) Two science-passed RC. Holy crap. Usually science passages are easier for me because all of the information is pretty straight forward. Med diagram easy. Didn't finish the last one I had left (Just Jewett).

LR (25) Easy, and probably experimental from what I've read (contained Anarchy question).

LR (26) Medium strength, manageable.

LG (23) No room to draw diagrams except for the last game. Stain glass + orientation classes were fracking time consuming and brutal in their own special ways.

This test was hardcore.

The first LR was indeed real (making the test out of 102), and I found it harder than usual as well.

The LR was pretty easy except for 3-4 questions, I'd argue (unless I missed something).
I thought it was the easiest Reading Comp I've seen in a while to be honest, maybe I missed something again?

-10. October was definitely more difficult (I wrote in October), so stop screaming that it's the hardest test ever; everyone who wrote October said the same thing and it wasn't. (Don't even tell me that's flawed logic, you assholes :P)

Now if I could just find out hte answers to stars and aliens I'd be able to have a really, really good sleep tonight. DAMN YOU WAIT TIME, YOU'RE HARDER TO DEAL WITH THAN THE ACTUAL FREAKING EXAM!


This is wrong. Everyone in October thought it was easy and straight forward. This test was not straight forward. It has an extra question. It had hard games. It had difficult RC. never before have i experienced such pain, confusion and panic.


+1 to the replied post

The June test had tough games (Mulch and Interns) -14 curve

December had Stain-Glasses and Conferences....Stain glasses was much harder than Mulch and Conferences was just as hard as Interns if not harder....

I don't think anyone is going to agree with you that the LG's were "straightforward"



Totally agree, ive taken both. Mulch is ez

This is one thing that I don't get, which was also true of OCt...so many instances where you have to just HYPO HYPO HYPO

it would seem that testing yor ability to detect and work from inferences is a better prediction of your performance in law school...guess not

So wait, the games section that had no room to write is for sure the REAL games section. I had RC,LR,LG,LG,LR but my first games was the easy one.

yes, that is the real one. I only had one LG section, and it sucked.

Anyone else really pissed off about not having ANY room to write on the first LG? Is there any rational to them not leaving any space, because it just seems cruel.

I think these logic games were just such a terrible test of skill. There were not very many inferences to be made, it was basically just how fast can you plug and chug a bunch of hypotheticals. My answer: not very fast.
