I leave with a question though. The score is scaled considering the percentiles, thus in relation with the other thousands of people taking it, right? This is why a hard test har a -13 curve while an easy one has a -10, am I wrong? Does that mean that my score scaling depends on how we 6 in Italy + 20ish all around Europe did that?

See you later...


Hey Inter, taking a nondisclosed test is tough. February-takers and Sabbath observers here in the States deal with the same frustrations. The good news, however, is that for most people, your strengths and weaknesses on test day closely mirror those in prep. A lot of people underperform their prep by a couple of points, but from what I've seen, their performance by sections tends to line up with prep.

As for the curve, it's a bit more complicated than a straight curve. The point of the experimental section is for LSAC to "test" questions for future dates. Based on the difficulty of the questions that ultimately end up on the test, they set the scale. They then check the scale after the administration of the test to make sure there's nothing crazy there. So if the questions on your test proved to be more difficult to all the students who took them in experimental tests and to all the international and Feb. takers who took that actual test, it would be a more generous curve. So, to your question, no, your curve will not be set by a couple of dozen takers, but by thousands upon thousands of takers like any other administration of the test.

Is this for real? If your goal is T14, yes.



Yea.. is for real.. also I accidentally skipped a question and in the middle of the first section I had to redo everything... But I think I'll just take the L.. deal with the low score... I think this will be particularly lower than my practice test, there were a lot of readind stuff I couldn't understand..

Also I only answere 6 of the LG, I guessed B on the rest.

Keep in touch everyone let me know if y'all need a paralegal :( :( :( :cry:

Your cancel will look much better than any score you could possibly get while guessing on an entire section.


+180.

I still think we're being trolled but if this is for real and your goal is T14 CANCEL and retake after you hit a PT average around or above the 75% of your #1 school depending on your GPA and time out of school.

I said it before and I'll say it again, CANCEL. There is NO WAY you got a score you'll be happy with if you guessed as much as you did.

I edited out some information on specific LSAT questions that were pushing the envelope. If I have to come back in here it will be bloody.

Back to your regularly scheduled programming.

After sleeping on it, I don't feel as confident as I did yesterday. I still think I did well, but there's a legit chance I didn't even hit 170. It's hard for me to gauge it the more I think about it. I could be anywhere from a 168-178 I have no idea.

So, our proctor forgot to give the 5-minute warning during the RC section. After the test, she told us that she will fill out an irregularity report and submit it to LSAC. If this is deemed an irregularity, does that mean that everyone affected will have to retake the section ro the full test, or that they will be given the option to do so? I am confident that I did not do worse than -1 on RC, and don't particularly fancy retaking that section.

After a night on it, I'm still feeling ok. RC is the big determinate for me but I'm really confident in my LR and lg.

This morning I woke up with a paranoia that I had misbubbled most of the easy LG section

That wouldn't happen. All that will happen is that there will be some type of mark next to your score that indicates the irregularity. But if you ended up going well, you should fine either way.

Will we all be posting scores in this thread when we get them back? I'm insanely curious to know what all of you got.

I woke up feeling weird about the test, too. I had several nightmares last night that the test we took wasn't real and I had to take the real test and couldn't do any of the logic games. I woke up hours before my alarms and couldn't go back to sleep because of it :?

I have a kind of irrational confidence that this will be my breakdown as well. I feel really good about that test, but I've been let down before by PTs sooo...

For me its -0LG, the best I've done on LR is -3 and I think I could've hit that yesterday, and RC anywhere from -0 to -6 lol. I'm usually pretty solid on RC though so i'm trying not to worry too much.

During my LR I started thinking about how sprinkle is such a weird word. Like, the stuff you put on cupcakes. A sprinkle is a single particle, but a sprinkle of sprinkles is several particles. I think that might've cost me a point. :lol:

You had more trouble with the dowsing passage than the inferring thoughts passage? I find that fascinating.


No, the judges. I think that we got different orders for RC.

I actually think that inferring thoughts was pretty okay.


I thought this too. The comparative passage for me was the hardest.

Weird. I thought the comparative section was the easiest of the 4, followed by dowsing. Makes me wonder if I just missed a bunch of Q's

RC was difficult but not impossible.
26Q LR section was pretty normal.
25Q LR section was quite difficult (assuming the section with heavy isotopes was real)

Yep heavy isotopes was real, and a real pain in the ass. Think I got that one right but after soooo much time.


This question and the chimps were both really easy to me. The more I read these boards, the more I'm confused by my own LSAT skillz.

I'm calling a -9 curve.

Retweet. But I'm legit about to google Dowsing because there's no way that shit's real. JUST WAVING BRANCHES? TO FIND WATER? WTF?

Oh I had to tell my proctors to shut up during LG. They were like nice about it and understood but it's still annoying. They had never proctored before and were really confused in procedure

SAVAGE haha

I prob would've done the same tbh, but I would've lost my shit if they were talking during RC. I need my full concentration for RC. :roll:

Lolol that's actually what I think my breakdown is, maybe -3/4 in LR and -3 in RC. I'm pretty confident I did it get worse that -3 there.
