This section sucked!! there was also a passage about rent control (ok) and a malaria passage. I skimmed the Malaria passage and just guessed.


rent control?



yea the econ passage that used that as an example.

Yes. There are lots of different test forms, even when we get them in the same overall order. Also, for people who think they had different experimental RCs than other people who also had different experimental RCs. This is because there is more than one experimental RC section being experimented at any given time. People ITT are really underestimating how much experimental LR questions and RC passages differ between test forms.

I'm actually surprised at the level of detail some people remember. It's all a big blur. Someone says UNESCO and I go, Oh yeah! but never would have remembered on my own.


It's kind of like trying to recall what you did at a party, and then a friend shows you a picture they took and you suddenly remember.

1st page. Second LR.


What do you mean by 1st page? I had the same order, I am thinking the 2nd one was experimental

I thought this was perhaps the easiest RC I've taken, and it's my worst section.
Both LGs IMO opinion sucked, I was emo after bombing the first but then saw the 4th was LG and was happy.
LR I felt was pretty difficult, especially the 2nd which is usually not the case.


I agree. RC is by far my worst section, but I found this RC to be the easiest out of all the RC passages I've ever done. I was able to grasp all 4 RC passages. There wasn't one that I read where I stated "Crap, what was that about?" Either I was just so motivated to beast RC or my new technique for it actually worked (I underlined nothing, I just read straight through).

I found LR to be a little tougher than normal, so hopefully I stayed afloat for those. My bread and butter is LG, and the LG section I took I got caught up on one of the games, so I guessed on the last 5 and was absolutely furious with myself come break time. Then after the break section 5 rolled around and it was LG, so I knew the first one was experimental. I was about to stand up and scream "THANK YOU LSAT GODS."

I thought the games for today were harder than December (which, admittedly, I only took as a PT). My brain is pretty mushy and I can't remember exactly why I thought they were hard, but I ran out of time. And I never do that. I feel like the questions were more complicated, they took longer.

I don't know. And RC was definitely hard. There was one passage (the second one? third?) where I random bubbled 3 questions because I ran out of time.

I have no idea what to think. I'll keep my score because it's my first time and I have nothing to lose, but I'm not expecting anything above 165. Sigh.

I'm curious why you chose the most homoerotic picture you could find from that movie...

Was the RC about the music and wording and poetry real? What about the RC about preserving language? Real or fake?

Language was real, the other was experimental.

This makes me nostalgic. Anyone want to talk explicitly* about the June 2010 LSAT?

did anyone find the 26-question LR hard? I thought the shorter one was not so bad but ran out of time and had to guess on a couple in the longer one

Got stuck on the games, guessed on 2 or 3, don't feel confident about a few more. I had two RCs, aced the first, who knows on the second (real) one. I thought both LRs were fairly easy. There's a good chance this test matches my lowest PT, may even be lower, it will be tough to decide whether or not to cancel.

I thought that was the harder of the two LR sections, yeah. I had enough time, but only just barely. Felt really good about the 25 question LR, but who knows.

Okay so far for RC real passages we have: Malaria, Language, UNESCO, and _____? Anyone know the last one?

Real Games: Snow Plow, The two people planning trips, [MOD EDIT]

Logic Reasoning: The one with the employees was real, and the one with children/tv was real.

I think that's the most I can say without getting banned. I'm still stumped on what the last RC was though. Anyone remember?

Agreed. I still don't think I did terrible on the 26 Q. I remember feeling pretty confident about it after I was done. I felt good the whole test except RC which I felt "ok" about.

I just took the Test, as you can see by my Username It didn't go well

RC (I completley Bombed) LR (Guessed 5 because of the Previous RC) RC (Gave me some Hope) LG (3rd Game messed me Up wasted too much time) LR

So RC LR RC LG LR

I read the rules and don't want to out trick the mods but I need some Hope that the 1st RC was experiential
