Feb Waiters: is TODAY the DAY? [New Poll]

Hey guys, throwing this up here so no one gets banned.

The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) understands and sympathizes with the anxiety that the LSAT causes test takers and their strong desire to discuss with their peers the questions that they have just taken on the LSAT. However, LSAC prohibits such discussion, including the so-called “postmortem” discussion of test questions immediately after a particular test administration, because it has the potential to affect the fairness of the LSAT and the law school admission process. Certain LSATs are non-disclosed and their questions may be used again at a later administration of the test. And even in the case of disclosed tests there may be circumstances in which LSAC may need to administer a test form to some test takers somewhat later than to others. Discussion of test questions in a public forum like a website before the test is disclosed, even though its usefulness is limited by the memory and ability of the participants, makes information about that test widely available to anyone who has access to the web and may unfairly advantage test takers who see the discussion before they take the test. Since the number of admission slots in law schools is limited, such an unfair advantage could penalize those who took the test at an earlier time, including those very people engaging in the post-mortem discussion.

In an effort to ensure the fairness of the LSAT, LSAC requires test takers to sign a statement on the LSAT answer sheet saying that they agree not to “copy or retain examination questions or to transmit them to or discuss them with any other person in any form.” In addition, test takers sign a certification statement on the LSAT admission ticket agreeing that they have “no right to reproduce, recreate, distribute, or sell any of that test.” In this statement they also certify that they “understand that the Law School Admission Council reserves the right to pursue all suitable courses of action to prevent fraudulent or unauthorized use of its property and to prevent the compromise of secure test material.” Thus, test takers enter into a contract with LSAC that they will not discuss with others the test questions they have taken. In addition, LSAC’s “Instructions for the Day of the Test” state: “Legal action may be taken against anyone who removes test materials and/or reproduces test material in any way, or shares LSAT test content prior to LSAC’s disclosure of that test.”

If inappropriate public discussion of test questions on public websites reaches a point at which it threatens to undermine the fairness of the LSAT, injuring LSAT test takers, or at which it damages the value of non-disclosed LSAT test forms, LSAC would be compelled to take appropriate action to prevent such injury or damage. These actions could include reporting violators to the LSAC Misconduct Committee. Admission to the bar and the practice of law impose high standards of conduct and LSAC member law schools take very seriously the integrity of the candidates they admit.

LSAC does not seek to take special steps to enforce its prohibition on the inappropriate discussion of test questions. We would prefer that test takers recognize that compromising test questions before they have been disclosed by LSAC runs counter to the general interest of test takers in a fair testing process, as well as to the personal interest of those discussing the questions, and voluntarily refrain from discussing LSAT questions until after they have been disclosed to test takers by LSAC. However, we believe that we have an obligation to both our law school members and our test takers to protect the fairness and integrity of the LSAT and the law school admission process, and we take that obligation very seriously.

I'm pretty confident I nailed the test except for the last LG. I don't know why since im a pretty consistent -0er but there was 1/2 questions I don't think I got right.

The LG's weren't as hard as I thought they would be (I had two sections of LG's). I wasn't prepared to open my test at 8:31 and see RC!!!! WTF? I was barley awake! :shock:

I had 2 as well, thought one was easy and one was less easy but I think I might of messed up a rule diagram on the last LG of the non-experimental. It was pretty easy to tell which one was experimental and which one wasnt.

LR was nothing out of the ordinary and I thought RC was a breeze.

I had LR as my 1st section, so I'm hoping its the experimental because that was terrible.

I think the LR I saw today were the hardest in the 60s. For sure.

LG was pretty easy but I felt really terrible coming out of RC. Had to guess on two of the questions in that awful section about environmental industrial cleaning. Not sure what was wrong with me today.

Do we get our scores as scheduled, or will there be a delay on the release because of the blizzard?

1st LR was terrible (after the proctor announced there were only 5-minutes left I lost it); LR in general was pretty hard. :'(

101 questions on the exam, looking for a generous 170 curve.

I had 3 LR..LR-RC-LR-LR-LG

Hoping the first LR (26) was experimental. The second LR (25) was oddly easy so with my luck that is prob the experimental.

First 2 RC passages were easy, second 2 were harder. LG was fine but I remember one of the games being weird.

I had RC - LR - LG - LG - LR

Which LG was experimental? Not sure what kind of questions are kosher for me to ask to figure this out.

LR has always been my strongest section(s). I don't know why, but I can often spot the correct answer with little to any reading. So, when I say LR was easy as hell (in the other thread), take it with a grain of salt.

I think the second section was experimental. The second section was much too easy to be the real section.

Same here, although I know which one is the exp because I over heard some bathroom talk at the end of the test. Sucks because the exp I feel like I got 100% but the real one I may have missed a few.

I don't know how to properly iterate it without getting in trouble.
