I still do not believe that the 4th section would be experimental. It seems to me that would compromise the fairness of the test. It seems to me that before break/after break can affect scores based on stamina, snack, tiredness etc. I know it sounds like I am talking out of my a** but LSAC has had to have had a reason up to this point for always having the experimental before the break


This.
I find it hard to believe they would suddenly do this, but still leave the RC and LG exp in the first 3.

Which section was this for you? And what was your setup (Question amount wise)

Figure the third one was the expirimental. It had two questions out of the first 8 that were "complete the paragraph". Had never seen that before. Cant imagine it was real.....


The LR section with two complete the paragraph querstions at the beginning was real. It was my fifth section I only had two LR so they were both real. Sorry to be bearer of bad news

Yes I had the LR section. And my RC was experimental

Everyone else is talking about question topics, so I'll just go ahead and do it I guess.

For me, there was one section (1) with questions about 1. choosing game show prizes, and 2. bacteria in sewage with heavy metal. One section (3) had questions about 1. the acceptability of going into other peoples' computers and 2. pizza chains accepting coupons (this section had a couple really long questions). And one section (4) had questions about 1. dogs emotional attachment to their masters (or something along those lines), and 2. great apes recognizing themselves in the mirror. Dogs and apes were the experimental, according to everyone I've spoken to.

I specifically made sure I remembered a few questions from each lr section to ask her if she had them. When we compared, she remembered having questions from 1 and 3 for me, which makes me think the experimental was 4, even though that isn't supposed to happen. I'm absolutely positive the questions were from the right sections (I specifically checked each section to make sure), and she remembered the questions i was talking about before I even finished discussing them, so I dont see any other explanation. The lr experimental was number 4 if you had the same order as me.

EDIT: and no, the real lg didn't have ice expeditions. The real one had books, bikes, and ambassadors.


completely agree with you. it was the fourth.



srry people, your experimental section was one of the first three.

Woah. You might get banned for this. But. Did your third LR(section 4) have 26 or 25. How many questions were in each section?

Mine had 25. And I had questions from both the first two, but I don't remember anything like those other ones.

Have we reached a consensus on how many total scored questions there were?

I had LR(25)-LG(23)-LR(26)-LR(26)-RC(27)
I am almost certain on this. And I would bet my little doggy on it.

There are normally 101 total questions right?
Unless the LR after the break was experimental, then the experimental had to be the 3rd section.

I have seen plenty of tests with only 100 questions and even some with 102. There isn't any reliable way to determine the experimental by counting questions per section.

Believe me or not. I promise you I'm telling the truth, talk to some of your friends who also took it. There's no actual rule that says the experimental can't be after the break, it's just a pattern they've followed in the past, you'll see that I'm right. I'd post the topics of the actual questions I used to compare so you can see for yourself, but I'm pretty sure i'd get banned for that. To be fair though, wouldn't I also lie about the games if I was trying to be a ****?

Anyways, I'm just putting it out there. Believe me or not, you'll agree with me in a couple weeks.

EDIT: real rc was dostoyevsky, evolutionary psychology, Mexican American proverbs, and unified something theory (something from economics) applied to crime.

for what it's worth, I'm PRAYING you're right. I hope section 3 for me was the experimental (had one really long principle question), I was the least comfortable with that one. Unfortunately I don't think it's the case.


I know this sounds weird but I totally agree with you!! I thought it was impossible to have a 4th experimental section but my best friend remembers LR questions from both section 1 and 3 (i'm CONFIDENT they were from 1 and 3) but not the fourth section. Just putting it out there guys

I had only 2 LR sections, definitely had the first two you talked about. Definitely did not have dogs and apes.

Just created an acct so I can discuss this..

I had 3 LRs.....My test went LR(25)- LG(23)-LR(26)-LR(25)-RC(27)

I'm praying that the first is experimental b/c I bombed it and did very well on the other 2...Especially the 4th one.

First one didn't seem any more difficult, I just was still half asleep and kept having to re-read.

Um i had 3 LR sections. I got same section as your first one but the second one I haven't seen it.

I think there were TWO DIFFERENT experimental sections for LG and LR.

Does anyone remember if an LR had one about the oxygen consumption/global warming on animals in the arctic/tropics?
is that experimental or not?

What was on your fourth?

And for people with dogs/apes, how many questions in that section?

I'll be honest, I can't remember. I didn't think to keep track of the number of questions (stupid I know, I'm sorry)

Ya, I'm not sure about the 3rd LR section he is describing (sec 4).

why do i see fkin people creating new accounts to say that the experimental was the 4th section. Saw 3 people so far. Either there are fuckin trolls coming in to freak people out OR for the first time in lsat history the 4th section was the experimental. im leaning towards former, but stop doing it if you are just trolling

So the correct ones were definitely LG(23), LR(25), LR(26), RC(27).


If that's the case, then there must have been two LR different experimental sections - one with 25 and one with 26.

I know I had LR25-LG23-LR26-LR26-RC27, so the third was exp.
Some people are reporting LR25-LG23-LR26-LR25-LR27, so, for them, the 1st was experimental.
Seems odd to me.

Could there be the same LR section before the break for some people and after the break for others?

I created my new account because, until today, I thought the experimental was in 1-3, just like everyone else, and was absolutely shocked when I found that mine was 4. Talking to other people has just confirmed what I've been saying.
