Hate that game so much.


This is kinda out there, but does anyone have a list of hybrid grouping/sequencing games (ie movie theater game from 70 or rock/folk from Dec 05)? These kinds of games seem to kill me.

L4 nec. assumption q's are craaazy in the packets. Nothing quite like these on the modern tests; I'd say even the 70 qs were more level 3ish.

That thought lingers in my mind constantly now. Having a (basically) T14 secure score has crushed my motivation. I'm at a point where I just want to read recreationally, watch some TV shows, and let the application waiting process sort itself out.

I'm sure you'll be able to pin down your games strategy pretty fast since you sound like you don't actually have any bad habits or lapses in understanding. Good luck.

I think I'm going to have to take a PT tonight to give myself a kick in the ass, and I'll report back here tomorrow since this thread needs more activity.

Running with my October score is not even an option for me. I hope to apply sometime in-between the December LSAT release and fall grades being released. It's an annoying tradeoff. Fall grades will bring down my LSGPA, December LSAT will undoubtedly improve my LSAT. Maybe I'll just get it over with and submit in December with the request that they hold until January.

I did these last night and got at least one per page wrong. I did them all and came out of it feeling like I knew nothing. It took me close to fifteen minutes to start to figure out why I got some of these wrong. I am praying to all that is holy 71 doesn't have any like that.

Alex, still having trouble with this game? Check out 7sage's video for it. It is surprisingly a very easy game that can almost entire be figured out in the beginning.

Yeah, I've seen them a couple times now and I still missed a few. What makes them more difficult is that there are more wrong answer choices that relate to the argument, so it's more work to eliminate answers. Plus, the flaws in the arguments are somewhat more subtle than they are in lower level questions, not to mention the flaws in nec. assumption qs generally are more subtle than in other assumption family qs.

#203 is a classic example of an extremely subtle flaw IMO, and it's one where you need POE to get the right answer.

Been quiet on here but I've been grinding away at my LR and RC issues. Scored in the 170s for the third time in a row, on a test I havent seen much, if any of the material (maybe LG, but I still got tripped up).
PT 60
LR1: -1
LG: -3
LR2: -3
RC: -5
87=170
Finally seeing the LR light, after intense cambridge drilling! Little mistakes on parallels so I will be drilling those again. RC is definitely easier after going through the manhatten book again, also going with instinct on the easier passages helps alot with timing. But why -3 on mulch stone!! :evil:

On a somewhat serious note, participating in No Shave November currently and will probably keep it through the test. What are the chances it would be necessary to spend $5 to get my ticket picture retaken? Would they really turn me away because I have a mustache?

That game really is easy. You just gotta get those hypo's down and you're set to ace it.

It's a sad world when you happily take a PT just to get a break from writing your PS.

PT50 (retake w/ 30 min sections)
LR1: -1
LR2: -0
LG: -0
RC: -1
PT4 S4 as Exp LR: -2

98/100, 180.

While LR felt really, really fresh, RC was recognizable like always so definite score inflation going on here. Also that LR2 has to be one of the easiest LR sections ever. First time through I got -0 (when my average wrong was around 3~5). -0 again even without checking answers and 8 mins still left on the clock.

Question for everyone: Which PT/LR do you remember as being particularly difficult overall? I don't mean one with a couple extremely difficult questions, but something closer to PT 70. When I get a LR problem wrong, it's generally because I don't have enough time to check answers as thoroughly as I would like at the end more than the question's difficulty.

56 *shudders.* i went -0 on lg/rc on 56...and like -7 on lr combined.


Yeah, I got -10 on 56. LOL. I retook the sections later and scored -0 on them, but obvious inflation due to extensive review.

This is me exactly. My procrastination is fueled by the belief I already have the concepts down but just need to execute better on game day. I'm hoping two weeks is enough to get my timing back into its groove and that a more relaxed approach will do the trick.

you guys got any thoughts/comments on SPB? Just took it. That one rule in the in/out game was really weird ( in terms of seeing a rule like that for the first time).

SPB? Is that the June 2007 one LSAC offers for free?
