That question was in my first LR, which was also my first section. Since I only had two LRs, it was not experimental.

Having that said, I wouldn't put it past LSAC to shake it up a bit.

Section 4 for me.


I'm pretty sure mine was section 4 too. Also call it what you will, but even with all these months spent learning the LSAT I still feel like calling my score would somehow jinx it. That's where my rationality ends apparently.

I think my discomfort about it comes from telling myself I did poorly so that I can manage my expectations, while also telling myself I only missed a few questions. Choosing a number would make me abandon my contradiction :\

Again Feb is undisclosed, we just don't know what is going on in this black box. In the end, we got is just a raw score and percentile, we don't even will know the curve.


Yeah not going to lie I'm pretty suspect of those claims too.

There's a post in the sticky about how we don't allow this sort of thing, for future reference. Accordingly, I am banning some people. And by some people, I mean a lot of people.

I left everyone I banned with the ability to view the forums. I will be checking back in, and if I see that any of you have made alternate accounts to get around the ban I will do what I can to take that away from you.

Not going crazy here. I check my email twice a day and LSAC email is never on my mind when I log into my email account (so that's a good thing). I haven't touched the lsac website in awhile.

Seems like I'm the only person here who's not going crazy. :mrgreen:

I'm hoping a 3/2 release date means we already are!
But you're probably right...

This statement isn't proof, but I definitely remember that with the older tests. I noticed it when I downloaded the chart of LR questions classified by type- I'd see the same question for different types, occasionally three times. So it wasn't just the questions that used one stem to ask two consecutive questions.

Also, was doing pretty well waiting until I just got waitlisted at Michigan. NEED SCORE NOW

Anyone knows if they will break their usual waitlist acceptance cycle if you score fairly better than your last test?

Well there's a chance that it will release on the 3rd.
It has happened before- Saturday releases.

Yeah at first I was saying not to talk about it but it got pretty rampant in this thread I stopped caring and just joined in I figured the mods would have caught it a week ago if they were going to enforce it. Oh well, learned my lesson.

Meh not really. We've only been waiting 13 days. It could be another twelve. So we are past the half-way point but I wouldn't say almost there yet. (when you start thinking that way then the wait feels longer. I just keep thinking it's miles off in my mind and then it sneaks up on me. That's my strategy for ends of semesters, vacations, holidays, etc. It works pretty well.)

Nah. It will be the 2nd or 5th. We're actually getting really close. I'm excited :D
