So I think this has been discussed before, but to be clear, are we NOT going to get our response charts? Mine is blank other than the score.

Nope, you'll never get to see your breakdown or know your raw score. Probably better that way so you simply just enjoy your 175 instead of reviewing the ones you got wrong and agonizing about whatever mistakes (probably mostly careless) caused you to get them wrong and prevented a perfect 180.

Just bask in the glow of your 175!

Congrats to everyone else in the thread too! You international takers cleaned up on this administration with those 170s scores!!!

Nope, nothing at all. Literally all we get is the score, the percentile, and our writing sample (yay?).

Congratulations to everyone for toughing out the additional stress of taking the LSAT in a foreign nation on top of the regular LSAT stress! WE DID IT!!!

Foreverhoping, I'm sorry to hear that. :( There is always the retake. FWIW, this was my 3rd try myself. Don't give up hope!

Just out of curiosity, are you guys from US undergraduate or foreign undergraduates?

Dropped 4 points below my average PT score, debating on whether to apply this cycle or not :(

Haha you're probably right there. Yes! I'm feeling incredibly blessed and thankful.

This exam has taught me that you have to approach standardized tests as performances, rather than in terms of material that you know or don't know. If I hadn't done so many timed PTs, I wouldn't have been able to pull through under pressure on test day.

US. I've been volunteering/working abroad in Sri Lanka since graduation. Flew to Australia for the exam b/c I have relatives there, and they don't administer the LSAT in SL.

A 180??! I think they definitely got something wrong, because I guessed (between 2 answer choices) on 5 game questions and flew over the comparative passages, plus a few uncertainties on LR. Anyways, I'll take it 8) .

CONGRATS!! Yay the first international 180 to make an appearance! :D I'm guessing those were super educated guesses/you have really good intuition. ;)

Thank you so much! Yeah, the score came to me as a total surprise. I guess I was having some luck booster on the test day, considering my PTs were around 170-173.
Right now I really need to dig into my PS...have a long way to go. Looking forward to learning a lot of stuffs from you guys!
