Let's hope for a -6 for 175 and no 174 :)

-9 or -10 seems likely to me. I still have no idea which one of my LR was experimental. LR RC LR LR LG with 26-25-25 for my LR but it all seems a blur to me so I can't remember which question was which. Consensus was that the 26 was real and I'm hoping section 4 is the experimental.

I'm really hoping it's not -9. Something tells me no -9 in light of the general opinion concerning LR and the fact that RC was at the very least average.

I'm going to say -12,

Hard RC, average/hard LR, hard LR, but easy LG. I feel like the difficulty of LR would outweigh the LG, and throw in a difficult RC and that's my reasoning.

I also hold out hope that the opinion on the LG would be specific to this forum and high lsat achievers. Possible that LSAC may have devised a set of LG's that favor a steep learning curve - i.e. once you're comfortable with LG you find it easy, but certain aspects remain quite difficult for the 155 and lower? (Keep in mind I still feel half drunk from the pressure/lack of sleep/exam today).


Something else I'd like to debate, anyone think the curve will be more generous because large portions of the Eastern Seaboard have not taken the exam, and may (hopefully) be given another exam? You could speculate that these major metropolitan centers will have more children from "cognitive elite" households, and/or have felt parental pressure to achieve at a high level on this exam. I was born and live in the west, so I'm not trying to bash any geographic areas or say these pressures and intelligence don't exist elsewhere. I'm just saying maybe it's a good thing that we've taken 1500 or so big law lawyer's kids out of the mix.

Overall, I have no idea on this one. I'm just glad it's over and wish the score would come tomorrow. The wait on this one will be brutal as will the lack of ever knowing what I did not know.


Feeling that, and hating it too. If I could get out of today's LR with -15 I'm a happy guy.

I actually thought of this myself. Maybe with most Ivys out, the remaining group will underperform. There is a flaw in this argument but I no longer give a shite.

Curve is not evaluated the day of, sorry. Blizzard/earthquake/alien invasion the day of the test has no effect on the curve.

'Curve' is determined beforehand, so it wouldn't make a difference. At least that's what everyone says.

That was an entire RC section, not an LR. Or am I losing my mind? (polysacrylate/polyaspartate?)


That must have been the RC passage I had 2 minutes to get to at the end :(

Take the average opinion here, subtract one or two, and you have your curve. I would say -12 is pretty unlikely. Seemed pretty similair to difficulty in October and that was -10

Ugh brutal placement as the last passage. Started that question as they announced five minutes and it took all my willpower to not panic and just work through it. I was reading so fast it felt like I was inhaling the words with my eyes.

I think it's 80% -10...pretty confident about this one

And for the record, I think the highest % of people for October picked -12 as the most likely curve. I would be absolutely shocked if we had a higher curve than -11.
