I ran out of time on both RC and LG (which is normally my strongest section) and ended up guessing on like 8 questions. On the other hand, I finished both LR sections with time to spare (and my experimental LR was so easy that I think I finished after like 28 minutes).

Looks like I'll be retaking in June.


yes, i ran out of time on LG also and I'm usually pretty good at it .. everyone keeps saying it was easy, i thought dec 2010 was easy when i did it as a pt :( and ya, i had experimental lr, i went to the bathroom at the beginning of the section (i guess it was kinda lucky that i accidentally chose the experimental section for my restroom break), and came back and still finished with >5 min to spare.


The LG was pretty disheartening for me, since it's supposed to be my strong point. I think I freaked out a little towards the end, too, when I realized that I had no time left and couldn't focus. My brain was more "OMG YOU'RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME" than it was actually thinking about the games.

I think the order didn't help me, either. I seem to do best when I have LG towards the beginning and RC towards the end, and I had just the opposite today: LR RC LR LR LG.


Ya, i had that same order and i also usually do better when RC is near the end .. I think it's because after a bunch of LR/LG I'm just looking for arguments and flaws and all that and by that point reading the RC I just automatically pick up on the important stuff easier

The comparison passage in RC was infuriating. Passage B was just not cool. I'm assuming this is no too specific?

I liked passage B. It was so straightforward. It was an RC passage without purposefully poor writing.

Well, had an interesting test day. Found out Jerry O' Connell took his LSAT there, and Eva Longoria took some upper division writing class exam at my testing center too. Had a girl cry/go to the bathroom after her writing section, and a guy's phone went off right next to me during the writing section (yeah he was dismissed). Oh, and LG messed me up again and I think i did worse than my original test.

On the plus side, its absolutely perfect here right now. 80 degrees, slight breeze, and not a cloud in the sky...

Did anyone notice anything uncommon as far as the test went? Not saying any letters specifically but a whole lot of a certain letter in certain sections? or a few of the same letter in a row more than once?


yeah I noticed this too, made me a little nervous but I try not think about that cause I've seen it happen on PTs

For that specific reason, I bubble everything at the end so I don't have too much time to look at the pattern of the bubbles.

[MOD EDIT: SEE ABOVE.]

But in all seriousness, I thought 2 games were pretty straight forward, (part of) Snow plows was a little harder than usual, UNESCO was annoying, and LR was about the same. It's too bad, I was really hoping that Opera Singing etc. was the real RC.

Opera singing was the experimental RC? Aw man, I would've loved if that was the real thing. I have my freaking degree in opera singing.

Damn UNESCO. Just damn UNESCO to hell. Wtf was up with that format? I went into cruise control because I was just SO SURE that it had to be my experimental section with that fucking crap.

So correct me if I'm wrong but the real RC passages were: UNESCO, Malaria, Environment/Export and Language right?

Well...thought I was finally going to get my test score average of ~176 here on my try #3 on LSAT, was hoping to finally take a test where I didn't get screwed by the games section compared to practice tests (esp. tests prior to 2009, when apparently they started making games the make-or-break every test :( ) Looks like I am out of 170s range for rest of my life as no way I'm taking the test again and highest was 169 before...oh well, on to bigger and better things.

Thought I nailed it until the games...one LR was easy with one or two iffy questions, next LR had 3 or 4 iffy questions including one blind guess from time running out, the reading section had 3 medium-difficulty sections and 1 hard comparison but I still think I probably got almost all right, and then on games I had to blind guess on 5-7 (spread out across different questions because I tried all 4).

I'm guessing 3 wrong from reasoning, 3 wrong on reading, and 7 wrong on games, which will probably put me 167-169 (my prior two scores).

I just froze at the end when I got LG. Seriously considering canceling.

We'll never know for sure, but yes, I thought LG was easy overall, had no issue at all with plows.

LR RC LR LR LG

Didn't do too well on the first LR (26 qs I believe), RC was average, Experiemental LR was easy, 2nd LR was good, and LG was good

-Not sure if I pulled 170+ on this one bc I felt that the test wasn't of great difficulity, I'm expecting a curve of -10.

Hey guys it seemed like I was marking "true" a lot for the true/false questions. Anyone else have this problem?

I had the same set up. Everything is a big blue but I remember 25 question on the first section, but I'm not really sure. Could there have been 2 forms for this LSAT with the same setup as LR RC LR LR LG?

If I recall, the 2nd LR was really really easy, I remember breezing though it at a breakneck pace. I was kinda hoping it' was real, but I knew it was too good to be true.
