Does LSAC factor in WHICH experimental you get?

Postby jortiz682 » Sat Jun 04, 2011 5:05 am

I'm sure the answer is probably no, but there's a big difference between, say, an RC experimental that puts you RC-LR-RC-LG-LR vs say...RC-LG-LR-LG-LR. I'd greatly prefer the latter, and even in testing myself I find that 3 RC's or LR's in a row tends to cause slightly lower scores by the 3rd section. Seems like something they could obviously account for, but probably don't.

No they don't account for it when determining your score.

I took the LSAT 3 times and got 3 LR sections each one =\. I wanted an experimental games so bad.

experimental games aren't all that they are hyped up to be. i normally finish almost all 4 in the elapsed time but on my experimental ones in December, i barely got through the 3rd game.. it was pretty frustrating because you gauge your performance based on the games and I thought i was for sure screwed until I saw that second games section come 5th and knew the first one was experimental.. I had a hunch either way because they were friggin hard.

In a perfect world, you wouldn't metagame the test at all, and trying to determine 1/3 LR vs 1/2 RC/LG wouldn't make any difference.

80% of the test is half psychological, you know

And 60% of the time this method works every time.

I'd prefer RC over LR experimentals :|
