Those of you who had LR-LG-RC-LR-RC. The first RC was for sure exp right??? That would be unprecedented if it wasn't right?

First 3 sections have almost always contained the exp. I've only heard of a exp on the 4th section, and that was Oct 2011. I've never heard of a 5th section exp.

Just because something hasn't happened in the past, doesn't mean it won't happen in the future. Before Oct11, the experimental had always been section 1 2 or 3. Everyone was like "nah, that fourth section couldn't have been experimental, it's never happened before!!" and you see what happened. So why couldn't the 5th be the experimental?

I'd say it's highly unlikely as the 5th has never been exp, but you're right, it doesn't mean it cannot happen. I think I actually did better on the 2nd RC anyways (but I'm def in the minority) so I'd like to score that one.

it was one of the 25 q ones.
one with 26 qs is definitely real.

LR-LG-RC-LR-RC. RC-5 was insanely difficult. I stopped trying after the 2nd passage. My thinking: either the section's going to be real and will get a low score and cancel anyhow, or it's going to be experimental and isn't going to count anyhow.

I only had 1 RC section and the comparative was so mind-numbing and clunky, that I'm thinking it was not an experimental one.

I had the LR-LG-LR-LR-RC. I'm hoping the first section was the experimental. I don't know if it was due to it being the first section of an 8:30 test, but it seemed atypical for LR in terms of questions.

Can we please figure out which LR was experimental?
Are we not even allowed to tell which question was on a section without discussing answers?

+1 I had this too and the 1st LR just didn't feel right to me, the questions were atypical for sure

I'm hoping that it was... because it totally sucked. Though the other section that I gather wasn't experimental had a difficult comparative reading passage as well.

I had LR-LG-LR-LR-RC in October. And my fourth section was experimental.
I'm really holding out hope for the unprecedented: that the fifth section this time around is experimental, although I realize the chances of that are slim to none (as they were in Oct).

FML....

I had LG-LR-LG-LR-RC


the first LG I nailed.... and then the second LG i one was ridiculously hard for me.. seemed like the questions were different from recent LSATs...

from what people are saying it seems as if the first section for everyone was the experimental... whether it be RC,LR, or LG. I just happened to have LG first and it was fing awesome i killed it with time left over.

edit: i think I remember my 2nd LG being 23 questions - so that was the real one? My RC section was hard as hell too for some reason.. i didn't like this test very much.. it seemed hard.. besides for the first section which i have a feeling was my experimental.. agian. FML

LG LR LG RC LR

First LG was experimental. I'm Certain. The first had 22 Qs, second had 23.

I had LR-LG-LR-LR-RC

The first LR was DEFINITELY the experimental. The question stems were noticeably different than anything I had seen before and it felt different. That appears to the be the general consensus.

Also, isn't it possible that those of us who had LR-LG-RC-LR-RC could have had different test forms?
Experimental RC1 for some, and experimental RC2 for others?

I'm gonna try to keep coming up with excuses for why I don't suck.

Experimental section, historically, does not come after the break. As far is if they are ordered differently, I don't know if they are made to be that different. Someone can correct me if I am wrong.
