Anyone troll last year's thread yet to see when scores may be released? Haven't check LSAC either. Can't see the site over this beer.

Oh and in the blunders department: my drink opened and spilled a lot in my gallon bag. Luckily I had my ticket in my pocket and the only things that got sticky were some of my extra pencils and snack.

Do you think that LSAC could generate extra revenue by offering to provide people their test scores two weeks early in exchange for a $50 fee?

LR section with shrimp farms seemed a bit more difficult than normal.



+1

I had a hell of a time with the second LR. RC was okay, but the chaos theory one did throw me a bit.

Mapping games are standard prep in most books. You guys should have been solid on the table one... calm down!

I don't even know how it happened. Like maybe there was a small puncture somewhere? I re-sealed the bottle very tight and never tipped it over.

I had approx 6 mins left for the last RC passage--I spent a few too many mins on the earlier passages- although I didn't think they were that hard. Just took me a little longer than normal to get warmed up.

I skipped the circle game completely and did the last one third. Came back to circle game and cried a little inside. :(

The first LG was a cake walk and I finished with more than 5 mins left.

Lol I was that guy who ran to the bathroom after coming in late and held up the exam from starting


I had one of those. My test started at 9:10 am due to some guy who forgot to print his slip, and had to find library and print it at the testing center. We were waiting and waiting and waiting…


I had TWO ppl in my section forget their picture. They had to go photocopy their license and cut that picture out and paste it to their form.

Some one else in my row didn't return to the test after the break ...poor thing.

Even though everyone is talking about the diplomats/circle game, which I agree was difficult, I found the overall section challenging rather than just that game. None of the games taken on their own were a bitch (i.e. stained glass or dinosaurs), but there were no 'gimme' games like there normally is. Of the questions I answered w/o throwing darts (22 out of 23), think I did fine, I just don't remember feeling that stressed/rushed during a games section in the vast majority of the full PTs I did (~51-71).

As for RC, I remember thinking common law was easiest, followed by women in france, then science...actually thought the comparative reading passage had some pretty tricky ones. Not a horrible RC overall though.

I don't know about you guys, but I thought the LR section was a cakewalk compared to pt 71/70....

Personally, LR never feels like a cakewalk; it's normally the most troublesome part of the test for me. That being said, though, whenever I finished a PT LR section within the time limit and didn't have any random guesses, I tended to get -3 or less. I did that for this section, as I did with 70/71...Let's hope that trend holds true for the real thing.

Ughhhhhh the circle game. I want to cry forever, I only have one administration left before I can't take the LSAT anymore. I had to guess on more than a few questions... But I can't remember now. I'm almost positive I got like a 155.

I'm crushed. 6 months of work. For a crap score.

What do you mean by rough patches? (Sorry I've been drinking too.)


I felt there were a few questions there were the gaps weren't addressed by the answer choices and/or the answer choices were generally poor. Shrimp farm question comes to mind but any further detail has been lost to alcohol.

Order was LR-RC-LR-LG-LR FWIW


Same here. Section 3 and 5 were real, right?

Hey,

Im so sorry to hear you had to cancel. :cry: How will this impact you admission plans for this cycle?


Not going to apply this cycle

I'll start studying again next week. Luckily I only studied for a little over a month and a half and didn't use PT's 51-66. Honestly I think burn out hit me after the first section I literally was freaking out and just couldn't comprehend anything I was reading in the RC

The only positive I'm getting out of this is that at least I can apply to a wider range of schools next year. I understand the material I just didn't time myself enough during PT's to get ready for testing conditions

Seriously. If you'd asked me after section 4 I'd have guessed I was getting a 165+. I think I might have actually gotten more wrong than right for LG, and I was PREPARED for LG this time. I'm furious, because I suspect I will be below 160 again, after multiple PT's at or above 170. So much work, and I can't take it again.

5 definitely was, given this thread. Which also sucks because 1 and 3 were easy. Not sure which between 1 and 3 was the real deal though.

This was a retake for me and my stress levels were WAY lower. I walked in and out of that test confident as hell. I thought RC and LR1 were cake, LG was a little rough and LR2 was harder than usual. If I had to guess I'd say I got 165-169.

One of top regional schools I'd be happy to attend extended their dead line so that they will accept June scores for this year. So there is always that. Sigh.
