For me:
LR1-LG-RC(exp)-LR2-RC

LG was frustrating..but I think I figured out the third game pretty nicely by the end. Might have even gotten everything right but still.. I got pretty stuck on that one game.

LR was fine..both sections..some tough ones in the danger zone [Questions #18-22]..but nothing out of the ordinary.

RC exp was easy..too easy..

RC real..first three passages were fine, but there was that mirrors passage. I definitely messed it up. Worst thing ever.


From practice, RC is typically my worst section..so I shouldn't be surprised that RC was a pain-in-the-ass on the actual test too...

My car radio was mocking me on my drive home by playing "Mirrors".

re: mirrors - I didn't find it to be tougher than normal. Does this mean I botched it? I switched to making almost no notations about 3 weeks out and was consistently -0/-1. Had between 6-8 left over for RC.


I agree. I didn't think anything of mirrors until i saw everyone here freaking out about it. I'm not the greatest RCer (-4/-5) but the science stuff never phases me. Prions was a breeze on the october test.

I was iffy about maybe 1 question when I looked through everything. Here's to hoping we nailed it.

Thinking back, that seems about right. Some Q's were tricky, but I think the passage was designed for you to get stuck on the content. I breezed through just getting a sense of things, spent a little more time on Q's. Maybe that's why it felt normal?

Very simple structure. I guess maybe the questions were a bit hard? It was interesting to read. What do u think bee?

I'm beginning to feel worried that I didn't find LR2 (26 questions) that difficult...must have missed something

Lol not safe to say at all but I can see where you're coming from..


I challenge you to find me a Dec PT that had a smaller curve than its preceding October curve.


Just because it never happened doesn't mean it never will... use that LSAT logic! :lol:


But the fact that it never happened implies a policy preference that one would have to positively show there's reason for the LSAT makers to abandon. It's extremely unlikely to happen now.

Lol you can't be serious. Might as well hope for a -14 since we are using bs logic.

I'm a big nep fan largely b/c I feel only he and I fully grasp the brilliance of LSAC.

Unrelated but my sleep schedule is seriously fucked. I've been going to sleep between 4-6am for a couple of weeks and going to work at 9. I stayed up last night until past 4 listening to Glenn Gould's Beethoven on spotify.

I can't decide if exp. RC or real RC was easier. I'm just very happy about RC after my faceplants on RC on previous LSATs. I think the mirrors passage structure stuck out like a sore thumb; it was one of those RC passages where you don't really have to refer back to the text.

im with dosto. mirrors was a poorly worded passage with a few tricky questions, but not as difficult as other recent rc passages (not even close, really)


I agree with this completely. 60s RC were significantly harder. So unless LSAC thinks that LR1 and 2 were extremely hard. I doubt we will have a significant curve. But there is hope. Maybe they thought LG and RC was hard lol.

Man, I feel like I just pointed out that section difficulty is a silly standard for guessing at curve, but we just can't help ourselves.

With the adrenaline rush fading, I think I was overestimating Mirrors difficulty. I freak out over questions I'm not 100% sure on, and there were quite a few of those for that passage (and RC section in general I think), but the passage+questions themselves weren't difficult. More like answer choices weren't as obviously correct or wrong?

Can anyone confirm how many questions that tough LG had? the second one? Was it 5?

We spent all our logic today on 101 questions. Let us bask in the sun of irrationality for but a moment!

I suppose it is tradition.

Was LR less verbose than it has been as of late? Or am I imagining things?
