I had the exact same setup. RCX got me ready for real RC. Blessing in disguise.

I agree it was easier than pt 70. Games were easy, then 3rd was obnoxious, but last one was a cakewalk. RC was easy, first LR easier, and last LR for me was moderately tough.

Someone's cell phone went off during our test. Proctor looked up and told him to "silence it" and put it away. :?

I totally agree with this. Last passage in exp RC was a speed read. And by speed read I mean I almost wet my jeans.

Wouldn't worry about it; second guessing is pretty bad during first week of wait especially for LG.


i didnt have experimental but someone started mentioning wings in a museum and i swear it was am/pm all over


That museum wings game felt like it should have been hard but it only took me 7 minutes to do. I was actually having fun during that section. Even though I found the real LG more difficult it was still a nice boost going into RC which is usually my worst section. I thought I bombed last time and got a 168, this time I know I missed a few but I am confident I got 170+. Mirrors was hard but most of the questions had text that I could look at and say "yep this is right". RC was not fun, but when we get it back I think we will realize how straightforward it was. I'd rather have hard passages than hard questions.

I read though this thread several times and it isn't helping. It's on me, though. My faulty memory is making it impossible to figure this out. I don't remember anything this about trees or advertising either. All I remember is the art game and I can't place whether that was in my first or second LG section.


Every single game in both sections is listed in this thread. As far as I can tell everyone who had LG-LR-LG-RC-LR, which I did too, had the exp LG as the 2nd(3rd section). I think it's safe to assume that unless anyone says they had exp. first with that order. Can't really say any more than that.


For test takers with LR LG LR / LR RC... was the fourth the real section? or the third? please let it be the third.


Looks like the third was the exp (the one right before the break was exp).

When schools put in numbers for the rankings, do they report the LSDAS gpa or degree gpa to them?

I got a packet from Michigan with a little note about my Finance degree from the dean, which was a big surprise. Their Median LSAT is 168 and GPA is 3.72 (My lsac gpa) and 75% is 3.83 (my undergrad gpa). They must be hurting for apps or they really like Finance B.S. degrees, I didn't think Finance was anything special for law school.


Hate to burst your bubble but Michigan writes a little personalized note on every letter they send out. It doesn't mean anything in special.

I'm starting to second guess myself. I'm reading everyone else's comments about how certain sections were hard and I felt like this test was much easier than a lot of my PT's. Now I'm starting to think I did something wrong....

I breezed through LG. LR1 was more difficult than LR2. And my RCX was soooo much more difficult than the real thing.

I really didn't think it was bad. Now I'm panicked that I'm missing something.

A teacher was with some students in one of the rooms though, made a bid deal and wouldn't leave... They must have been doing presentations or something because there was intermittent clapping coming from their room throughout the exam. Kind of annoying but I got used to it and ended up thinking it was funny.



ACC campus? I had the same thing.

My LSDAS Gpa is a 3.72 and my undergrad is 3.83 (high school early college experience credits fucked me) This is a pretty big difference when looking at mylsn.info. Will schools care more about my undergrad gpa or lsdas for admission?

Is that worth an addendum you think? I got a 3.12 for 12 or so credits from high school, 3.7 freshman year, and a 4.0 since. 4.0 degree GPA.

No, because the addendum isn't adding anything to the application. Adcoms can see your transcripts as well, so they'll be able to see why you have a 3.72 regardless of whether or not you explain it to them. Also, for the sake of numbers, 3.72 is what you're stuck with, because it's what they will report to USNWR.

Your gut is a better indicator of how you did than the experiences of other takers. And besides, plenty of people feel the exact same way you do.

dosto is truth.

dont let tlsers whip you into a neurotic frenzy. from experience, i can tell you it doesnt help at all.


for reals. felt pretty good until i logged back on here, haha.

You'll probably have more luck with your questions in the admission forums; I'm sure many people in there have the same issue.


Honestly, if you got a 3.12 from 12 credits in high school, that will do absolutely minimal damage to your LSDAS GPA. Even a 3.72 GPA is laudable. I say you're fine.

What was the breakdown of questions per game for LG?

Is that too much to discuss?

I don't think so. The first game had 5 questions. Do you remember how many the last game did?
