I remember the 3rd LR having 26 questions. I hope that was the real one since I actually finished through that compared to the 2nd lr which I had to guess the last one.

That one was real.
I'm thinking your second one was the experimental because that's the same position my experimental RC was in. I was LR LG RC RC LR.


Ya second one was definitely experimental. Which sucks, cuz I felt like I did better on that than the first LR

Why not sit out this cycle and retake either Feb/June, you even said that you're capable of doing better. I mean how set were you on YHS?


Retake until 180?

Bad jokes. I feel your pain but it sounds like we're all in the same boat. Clarification question: if everyone bombs the test, do they bump the curve, or is it set before the test even occurs?

It's so hard to remember individual LR questions, and even if you do, your memory of which section they were in might be fuzzy. Plus it's often harder to tell if you bombed an entire LR section than to tell if you bombed a game or RC passage.

Just relax and celebrate. As I just told my cousin who's a college sophomore: Everything you do will open doors. Not for me, a third-year law student--everything I do closes doors. You guys are still in the first group!!

I only had two sections of LR, and while I can't tell you which questions I had for which section because they all tend to blur in my mind, I did have question on:

Dinosaurs and leaves
Doves and trees
Something about calcium and lead pills
Something about state owned property and community ownership
Something about a style of art Content removed
A lot of questions about economists Content removed

There's more that will probably come to me as the night progresses.

Yeah I had that one in the LR which I am convinced was experimental (2nd LR 3rd section overall)

The LSAT isn't technically curved. It's equated, and the "curve" is supposedly set beforehand.


Shite.

Been lurking for a little while, figured I'd post/vent.

I took the test initially about a week after my honeymoon in September, having followed the Kaplan course pretty strictly. Was disappointed with a 158 so opted to retake (did get me into local safeties). I tossed a lot of the "Kaplan Method" and was able to improve my average practice test scores over 10 points to land in the 171-174 range pretty consistently. I am guessing I am sitting somewhere in the 168-172 range on this test. I guessed the 158 perfectly after I walked out of that last test so in a few weeks I'll know how close I was on this guesstimate.

The only section I feel I did worse than I could have was Logic Games. I think I dropped 0 on the easy LR, and maybe 2-4 on the harder one. I am not great at "calling" RC, but usually if I feel I did well, like I did on this one, I am in the -2 to -4 range. I have been consistently -0 on LGs recently. I think for the first 2 games I was -0, and -3-6 total on the last 2 which really sucks. I missed a little detail in the prompt for the last one and noticed it with not much time to spare which MAY have cost me a point or two. On the experimental I know I got it 100% right... which means nothing.

I am really counting on my LSAT score as my GPA is a 3.2 (in bio) and I am counting on being a splitter, with UVA and Penn as my reaches.

Mike

Ok thanks I'm relieved. I spoke with my friend who presumably had the same LG section (it was her only LG) but said it had 24 questions. I was so worried I missed a question and/or completely mis-bubbled my answers!!

Well, I was hoping to get a Ph.D./J.D. concurrently, and I've already sent out Ph.D. applications, so I am somewhat committed to this cycle. Plus, as of right now I don't know if I'll have a job next year, since I'm on a one year term of service for AmeriCorps. I'd like to have YHS as an option, but I could also see myself doing well at CCN, Berkeley or Michigan. Obviously though YHS have the advantage when it comes to law faculty placements. What happens if you apply to a school and then reapply a few years later?

Why? Are you listening to all of us dummies and thinking "oh yeah I definitely beat them"?
:lol:


:oops: I didn't mean that!

I'm just praying for a couple grace points!!!
