As for me, I'm applying next cycle, junior in college. Hoping for a 172+ and I think the test felt like most others, so hopefully it fits within my PT range of the last couple months of 170-179


160, 3.6 retaking for waitlists and scholarship negotiation. Hoping to hit 163-164. Not sure if I made it or not but oh well. Graduated with my bachelors already and took a year off to improve my LSAT and get into better schools. It felt like a typical test. LG was a little bit more difficult since pet owners was a type I suck at big time, but RC was on the easier side. Curve of -12 sounds right. -11 wouldn't surprise me. -13+ is divine intervention.


Anyone have any idea how a -13 curve would look like? I'm new to these forums, but I assume it means that 13 mistakes would be curved to a 170?

Correct. -13 for a 170.

Damn, that was a fast reply. Anyone have a curve to show me what that would look like, so that I could guess-timate how many mistakes I made and what my projected score would be?

First time poster, loooooong time follower.

I had RC(exp)-LR-Lg-LR RC
Thought logic games were on par, I hit 3 of them fully and guessed the pets apt one
The experimental reading comp was easier then the real one, I think, but it was first so who knows... Both were quite simple IMO, just ran into a little timing rush towards the end, presumably from fatigue, but still completed them all comfortably

LR I found interesting on this test, I usually am around 92-96% accurate on LR, it's by far my best consistently good section. I found them harder then usual, but I didn't get tripped up, I usually finish 23/25 in the first 15 min, then do the two skipped, then review any that I didn't put a check next to signifying that I am certain I got them right. On this test I had a little less time to mess around with reviewing, but still handled each question confidently.

I am hoping this will benefit me, I've found the test usually accommodates a tough section with an easy one, and being most skilled at LR, and it having twice the questions, usually means when the LR is the tougher section, I end up on the higher side of the curve, just my experience.. In either case I have a pretty good idea where I scored... Are we still listing lr? I could remember a few I'm sure...

THE FOUR REAL LOGIC GAMES


Loose sequencing involving H L J K F M
I would list the rules, but I think that's a no no

Pets to apartments

Long commercial short commercial

Wed morning, Friday morning Friday afternoon

Thanks for the chart. Much appreciated. One more question. So the people who had LG-LR-LG-RC-LR (or is it LG-LR-LG-LR-RC?) had the first LG's as the real one?

Mine was LR LG LR LR RC.
25, 23, 25, 25, 27-- though with people saying the second LR section was 26 I'm second guessing myself...

LG: Commercials, Apartments/Pet owners, Wed/Fri, Interviews

RC: Heirlooms/Agriculture, Tax Subs, Bankruptcy, Sand storm/Fossils.

No show for a rc on race/gender...

That sucks! I was hoping that the RC section with the mathematics/physics was the real one. I did much better on it than I did on the second RC (the one with the sand dunes)

Has anyone done so badly on a section they guess most of the questions (for LG), but felt confident they got all the answers in other sections and done well?

Depends on the idea of well I suppose. And how well on the other sections...80% well?, or 95% well... If the latter, you could still see a good score with some guessing luck, and how many you actually had to guess

You can miss all 23 logic game questions and get a 160. But the chances are slim (you had to have missed none in the other sections...). Chances are also slim that you missed all 23 questions as long as you guessed one letter for all the questions.

Since Feb is an undisclosed test, do we get raw scores too or just the straight up 3-digit number?
