@Tetrisblock 171 was a on PT that I had previously taken about a year ago for December 2013 so I am not sure how much I remembered. Same with a few of my PTS. Not ideal but I burned a lot in past and had no choice. I guess my redeeming factor is that my absolute worst PT this time in test-day conditions (5 sections, simulation dvd) was a 163 out of the 20 plus that i took but that was pretty rare. Honestly, just trying to get into a top 50 with scholarship hopefully so a 160 or above would do.

I felt the questions didn't get hard till the very end, but they weren't hard in the usual way lately of a difficult stimulus. They were hard because there would be 3 answers I could legitimately see picking. So my thinking that the curve is going to be brutal/stingy is based on the assumption that I picked the right one of those choices, whereas in September and December I had trouble with the stimulus which made me think the curve would be generous/easy. Hopefully we're wrong and the curve is generous!

Tbc in agreeing with the -8 curve prediction I wasn't saying that it was an easy test, just that comparatively speaking it seems that this test would fall in the lower range for curve. So, I personally don't think I got a 180, or anything, but also don't think the curve will be major.

I guess you could say...it owned you?? Or you could say that everyone else was not owned by it and therefore you were owned by it.

The thing is I feel like there is always 1 section there is one that is obviously the most difficult and jumps out at you. It's just more likely to be a problem if it's your weakest section to begin with.

Would be shocked to see less than a -10. You -8 guessers are making me think I should definitely cancel!


Aside from maybe Yale nobody cares about lower scores. Think of your 3 takes as a chance to receive the average of your preptests since only the highest counts. Also I think you're dramatically overestimating the likeilhood of getting a 165 if you're averaging 175 on preptests. How often have you actually gotten that low? With the December curve you would have had to miss 18 to get that. Reading comp and ambiguous LR means you could score lower or higher than you expect, but I wouldn't expect 165 at all.



Yeah I haven't gotten a 165 since before I read the PowerScore Logic Games Bible, back when I was LG-inept. Haha, and I'm just extra nervous because I was really confident on the Dec. test and ended up missing stupid points (bubbling wrong and got like the first 2 easiest LR questions wrong on one section by switching them) so if anything like that happens again, plus the reading comp, I'm doomed.

Went -3 on reading comp last time, but same as LeslieKnope, I struggled through the 3rd quantum physics passage and had 5 minutes to read and answer the last section. Womp.

I have been averaging 166 this time and felt alright about it but wouldn't be shocked if I got a 157 worst-case scenario. I mean RC wasn't great, LG was, but there were more than usual a few LR that I kind of second-guessed my self and did not find a definitive answer. I did everything I could though and had a PT high of 171 going in. If I didn't get at least a 160, I know my immediate reaction will be feeling like I got my wind knocked out..


If the PT 171 was on a test you had never done before, and your average of 166 were also on tests that you had never done before, then I would think 160+ would be a lock. You have to miss several questions to go up and down a point in that range, and if you improved your average practice score by 5 points then you dramatically improved your skill at the test. LR guesses are usually narrowed down to 2-3 choices so they're much better than guesses on LG. I'd feel good if I were you.

agree. went -2 RC in Dec (consistently my best section) and thought this one was hardest I've seen.

Lol this is hilarious because this is exactly what happened to me in December too, down to misbubbling two really easy LRs and losing two points that way. At the very least I'm pretty sure that didn't happen today, though, just because I was so paranoid that I checked that I transferred right like three times. Hopefully we'll both have some good RC news come grey day, it really is the black box of the LSAT.

Damned if all the LR didn't just feel like a giant time suck. I've been finishing with 5+ minutes to spare, this time I barely had 1 or 2.

There's a chance they send us our scores earlier? Or they release the curve earlier?

I hope you felt postponing was worth it! I postponed a retake from Sept to now (as opposed to retaking in Dec) and I was glad I did...but, I remember how I felt the first time being finished, like any time I had free time, I felt like I should be studying or that I was forgetting to do something, lol...Now, I'm "looking forward to" studying/reading some pre-law writing course study material...but a little break is def going to happen first :)
