Hillz, I hope I am shocked and surprised (in a positive way) like you were when I get mine in.

Did anyone score well and guessed on like 5 questions at the end of each section? I'm so nervous about that.


Not on that test, but I did on my first one on the LG section and it actually ended up turning out okay. I only missed like 1/5 questions.

One girl in my administration didn't even look at an LSAT question before the test. I asked her afterwards if she had an idea what her experimental section was, and she said, "What, there is an experimental section?" :shock:

I hope I had good guesses. It was so weird for me because I was not really nervous at all on the test day. I studied and took it two times before and felt accustomed to testing. I was like, well let's get this over with. I think that was both good and bad. I went way slower than if I had been nervous, but I also was more concentrated because I wasn't nervous. My first take was horrible. I literally was sweating while taking the test.

A message of hope to those who didn't feel good walking out of the December administration:

I took it in September and walked out of the test feeling absolutely defeated. I was in shock because I felt so prepared after having spent a solid 3/4 months of 20 hours a week prepping. I was incredibly disappointed and knew that I would have to retake because I thought that I maybe scored 10-15 points below my PT avg.

I got the results in October and found out that I had a 169, only 4-5 points below my average. So if there's anyone out there who is feeling down, take heart.

That being said, I took it again in December and this time around the waiting is much worse. Maybe it's because I'm not in school and don't have as much to do.

I honestly will be satisfied with a 169. Thanks for the hope. About how many did you feel like you guessed on per section during September?

Yeah, I was ok with it too. I was just upset when I thought that I had bombed it.

I only straight up guessed on two LG questions (got one of them right!) but what really killed me was LR. I dropped only 1 on LG, 2 on RC, and 10 on LR (when my avg. was 4/5). I usually was able to get it down to 2 answer choices but I wasn't thinking straight and usually ended up selecting the trap answer.

Most of us Septemberers walked away feeling pretty good and were not so impressed with our scores when they came out. I think we had an easier than normal RC and LG, but tougher LR, and a tough LR section doesn't usually feel as terrible as a section with an awful game or really weird RC passage.

Not sure that's motivational... I guess it's just hard to have accurate expectations based on how you feel you did.

I didnt completely guess on anything. I felt pretty good about RC which is usually my worst section but I definitely made "this looks best" choices.

I missed a detail on the last LG that made the last 3 or so questions impossible to answer, but I realized in time to confirm at least one of them. I wasnt able to answer every rug question with certainty. So where I usually drop 0 to 2 on the LGs I think Im in 3-6 territory. The first LR I think I am down zero, the second I may have dropped a couple. Im really hoping for 170+, but maintaining a 168-172 spread.

Yeah this is what's worrying me. I felt great about September, but in retrospect I had zero reason to feel that way. And I felt great after this take, so I'm pretty sure I bombed.

I felt like the RC this time was easy. The experimental RC was harder IMO and I guess the most on it, so I was glad it was not the real one. I guessed the most on that one and LG.

This was due to not having enough time from being so relaxed.

No I did okay in September. Below my average by 5 pts, but it's enough. Might retake in the future for better $$$ leverage, but we'll see.

I'm banking on being a splitter so I need this test to work out for me. 3.2GPA in a hard science and solid softs.

I guessed on one question and know I got another question wrong. I have never been able to guess my score on practice tests I have no idea if I wrote a 168 or a 180.. looks like I missed the pw on pg 180 though so im sitting at 179 max

Part of my problem is I dunno where we are gonna be living for sure. My wife is applying to DO schools and thus far its looking like it might be VA. In a perfect world Id stay in MA nd go to BU/BC if a 168+ can get me in as my father is a partner in a smaller firm in Boston and has a ton of connections.

I really do like the idea of living somewhere warmer though so I hope I can get into W&L and UVA. Both seem like great schools and are about an hour from the DO school she applied to.

Vet stats and the GI bill/voc rehab (my back/knees are toast) should be covering this for the most part. If I play my cards right I am hoping to graduate debt free.
