was it confirmed that back when LSAT did not take a bajillion years to report the december scores, they did NOT have this cushy break?

God's work right here.

Any poll vote after this information is tainted.

If I get some free time later I'll go back and check the past 40 or so exams for Oct-Dec curves where the Q's went 100-101. See if there is any kind of significant pattern.

The 4th RC passage (which was a science one -- mirrors) felt pretty deceptive, IMHO, because the passage seemed to be a bit difficult to comprehend given the time, but the questions felt very straight forward. Did anyone else notice the same thing?

PS: Is it just me or have the recent RCs been easy as hell? The RC and the games have felt like a joke these recent LSATs, nothing compared to iKung.

Yes. Mods: this is okay, right?

Sample size of one: October was right.

Glad to hear that. I really need a generous curve. :oops:

I think that was the challenge of the passage. You weren't meant to understand everything, just the structure.



+1. looking back on it, mirrors seems to be the perfect example of not really needing to comprehend one whit of the subject being discussed.

I was panicking because when I got to that passage I have only 7~8 minutes left and it was kinda dense. Usually I like science passages and never had a problem understanding them, but not this time. I had absolutely no idea what the second paragraph was talking about and I had no time to figure it out. So apparently I answered all the questions purely based on my understanding of the structure. :cry:

The passage required a lot of visualization, the problem is that it's hard to do that during the rush of the LSAT, especially given that for me it was the last section.

Yeah I agree. I think if I really try to understand, it shouldn't be a prob but under the situation of the test I don't think it would worth the time.

Also it makes me feel horrible that so many people said the RC was joke... :cry:

Yup! I understand why people thought this passage was hard....if you got bogged down in the details, then yeah it wasn't an easy passage. But I felt that you really just needed to understand the structure of the passage and the author's purpose. The questions didn't seem all that difficult to me after that. I think I got to this with ~10min left

I really tried to understand the passage, which I did while reading it. But as soon as I went to answer the questions it all dissipated and I tried to go back for the answers, which was stupid, cause it's not a passage I could just jump into in the middle. I ran out of time but was able to eliminate some choices and guess on 3 of them. Sigh.

I've certain I misread a rule too. I went through that game a wee bit too fast, but time was called before I could double check my diagram.

I completely misread this game, had to skip it and ran out of time when I came back to it...had to guess on them...did the first game have 7?

i doubt you misread the rules! second guessing yourself on games after the test is too easy, because it's such a blur. if you had a set up that made sense at the time and there were answers that corresponded with your deductions/inferences, then you should be fine. give your brain more credit! :)

haha the exact same thing happened to me. i misread the rules completely, was floored when none of the list questions corresponded to my deductions, skipped and came back. when i finally figured it out time was called.

the first game had 5 questions. second game had 6 questions. third game 5 questions. last game 7 questions!

(this isn't tmi right?)
