Not sure, though honestly, I don't know if it'll affect the curve.

So, so far we've figured out that there were exactly 100 questions and that different people had different types of experimental sections. What else should we try to figure out?

I had LG-LG-LR-VC-LR

I REALLY, REALLY hope the first logic games was an experimental one.

Name the games from your first logic games section and I will be able to tell you whether or not it was experimental

Was the LG about streets with tree names experimental?

I think one of them had to do with schedules on Wednesday afternoon, Friday Morning and Friday afternoon?

Damn it. Anyone ever blow a whole section, guess 3/4 of the questions and do well? I think I did well on the last three sections.

I thought the LG section wasn't bad at all. I almost always spend too much time on one game and thus have to guess for most of the last game on my preptests. I was able to get through all the games and had to do an educated guess on the last question. And why is everyone referring to the pet-owner game as the cat game? I don't remember any mention of cats on there unless I completely blacked out for a bit.

I don't really know what to think about the RC. I had 2 of them and they both kind of blurred together. I thought the questions were more difficult than the actual reading though, if that makes sense.

Mine was LR-LG-RC-LR-RC and seems like my 1st RC is my experimental, which I suspected.

I am usually -2 to -4 on LG but the 3rd game involving the AM and PM was difficult for me, which is ironic because I am very proficient in those types of games. I suspect I got maybe -6 or -7 on LG.

I thought the 2nd LR was much easier for me, the 1st one was my 1st section so it took me awhile to get me in a groove, not to mention I had to guess the last 3 or so questions due to time.


I completely agree. The AM PM game was much harder than I thought it would be and I think was actually the hardest game in the section.


Shoot. The AM PM game screwed me up a lot. I only had 5 minutes left for whatever the last game was (can't even remember now, my brain is too tired. anyone remember?). I had LG-LR-LG-RC-LR. The second LG was way easier, so I was hoping that was the scored one... I thought the RC was a lot easier than it was on the past few PT's.

Good work team.


Section 3 had 26?

If so... YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

Ugh. I only had one LG section (so obviously not the experimental) and I totally bombed it. The apartments/pets one and Wednesday AM/Friday AM/Friday PM killed me. Score canceled. :(

Based upon the apparent difficulty of the LG section I am thinking it could be generous.

Wow, got completely smacked in the mouth by that stupid multiple grouping game (pets/no-pets). I barely studied these because I thought that in the off chance we did get one (there have been like five.. ever), it wouldn't be hard to brute force. Oops.

Got a 177 in October, was taking this basically just for fun to shoot for 180.. and don't think I got it. Probably missed a question on the grouping game, maybe two. The rest of the games were weaksauce, but still took me about 25 minutes to get through, leaving me not enough time to brute force the pet/no-pet game.

LR felt pretty easy.

Also went deficient on the RC with the sections about Machiavelli and some BS about plants. I really, really hope that was the experimental. I got distracted and had to rush some inferences.

Also, test feels about like a -11. Maybe -12 if the games smacked enough people around, but the first and last games seemed so pathetically easy that it might balance out.

So are people here applying for next cycle? Retaking for this cycle? Juniors, seniors, graduates? What are you shooting for? How'd feel relative to other practice tests?

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

Then maybe he and I got the same experimental section.

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.

I had LR, LR, LG, LR, RC. The second LR I think was the hardest. The passages were all ridiculously long and so I hope it was the experimental section. When I first turned the page I thought it was a RC haha.
