What's not to love about the LSAT?

Yes it is.

It's obviously luck because some people will be stronger in some areas while some weaker in others, so just based on the basic laws of probability some people will do better some days and worse other days. There is no 'set' percentage of LR questions that fall into specific question types (I.e 10% conditional reasoning, 10% resolve paradox).. So it follows that luck is involved.

It's not really up for debate and anyone will tell you their scores fluctuate, some wildly, some within a small margin. Those fluctuations are largely based on being lucky or unlucky on finding answers that cater to your individual strengths.

I find your dismissal of my suggestion quite absurd and unnecessary.

Luck is if they randomly picked a name and gave that person a 180.

What you described is called 'not being fully prepared'

luck |lək|
noun
success or failure apparently brought by chance rather than through one's own actions

My success or failure doesn't hinge on the "chance" I'll get certain question types. My in/action to study for those questions is what decides my success/failure. I started with a diagnostic of 160, and now average 174 - am I getting luckier?

------------

Fuck showing hard LR questions to non-test takers and they answer them right, without any issues
Fuck three days of learning formal logic and still getting the 1-2 questions needing it wrong
Fuck the guy above that said this is "luck"
Fuck every time you're studying and you can hear children laughing and playing outside on a beautiful Saturday afternoon
Fuck not being able to drink a sip of water during the test, sir, I'm parched
Fuck actually knowing an RC section's topic and spending half the time trying to forget what you know so it doesn't end up hurting you
Fuck Dutch Agricultural Studies
Fuck the scientific community for not creating a template on explaining studies (thanks for letting me know after 3 paragraphs that everything I just read is conjecture and no longer relevant)
Fuck T14 or bust
Fuck cholesterol and alzheimer's disease
Fuck author's that use a single adjective to express their tone
Fuck having an LR experimental section

If your scores fluctuate wildly and 'randomly', that means you have zero process and inconsistent gut instincts. For those people, yes, the score might be mostly or entirely based on luck. But they are also incredibly and unforgivably unprepared.

The less prepared you are, the more luck can affect your score. When you are well prepared, luck is only a tiny factor.

The LSAT is also the opportunity to compensate for a lifetime of slacking. In most other fields that one can realistically just "break into", 22 years of slacking screws you.
