So maybe I did get better, LSAC just fucked us over lmao...

Glad I got LG last. Although I wanted it first going in, a LG that hard might have thrown me the rest of the way


Agreed, I got it last also. If I had it first, I think I would have collapsed.

Experimental. The real one was medical diagrams and Jewett.

Yes. It was. I had only one RC and it wasn't anything to do with that.

I had 2 RCs and even I don't remember reading that. Did that section have Perfume/Oil Paintings? That was the first of my Exp.

Did anyone have a first question to a LR section that dealt with "how children perceived walking up stairs and them attributed the same word to someone climbing up a ladder?"

was this section real?

Too soon to start hoping for a -16 curve? lol That's the only way I'm getting above a 165...

The only RC I remember from the experimental was oil paintings and perfume. That RC passage was unlike anything I've seen before.

The real LG section was impossible. I was just guessing. The windows game, and conferences game, killed me.

Here's to guessing well?!?


lol, on the exp LG I had to guess 6 q's, on the real one I guessed 1. Conferences was hard though.

Real RC: Medical Illustrations/Jewett/Lichen on Rocks/Teeth and Agricultural (order not correct)
Real LG: Utilities/GlassWindows/Employees at conference/Easy linear i forgot what it was about

From what everyone else is saying though the easy 25LR section I had is exp? That sucks because I thought one of the 26's was very hard...

With a 102 possible correct questions I would say at least -12. LG was very difficult and that usually sets the curve.

I had LR (26) RC (domestic novel) LR (25) LR (26) LG (stained glass)

I am trying to figure out which LR is the experimental. I know my 3rd LR had a formal logic question about fish, cats, and dogs? Can anyone confirm which one is experimental?

I really hope it is more than -12. If it is -10 I'm screwed.

I thought so too, but apparently not; making the test out of 102.

Shit it's starting to blur together now. I'm pretty sure the ladder question was in what I thought was the experimental LR...

fuck

The first LG section I did was a pain.. I pretty much gave up on the last 2 pages, had to guess a bunch. I was so glad to see another LG show up and did a little better on that one (glass), but it was still hard. What's weird is that I usually do well in LG on the practice tests and only miss like 2-3 questions, but today, I couldn't think under pressure and did an educated guess on quite a few of them.. my PT score is around 165. I always barely finished LR on my practice tests, but today, on both sections, I finished with 5+ minutes to spare.. I had to guess on the last passage for RC, cause I didnt really have time to think. I just wanted to bubble in something, and didn't wanna be caught halfway bubbling.

Pretty sure I did mediocre.. 150-160.. hoping to be surprised though, maybe 165.. Are people usually surprised (in a good way) by their scores or do most people get what they expect?

All my wrong answers will be from the conference game, guessed on 3 or 4. What a missing opportunity, the LRs and RC are exceptionally easy in my opinion.
