You have no idea how happy I was to see that as the science passage. I already knew what dowsing was (thanks mom for teaching me about it when I was a kid for no apparent reason), so that passage was super comfortable/familiar. I think the hardest part about that one for most people was just how weird of a concept dowsing is. Who tf thinks you can actually find water by walking around with a pointy stick and then jabbing it into the earth



Weird, I learned about this in some history class I think in relation to the Homestead Act and discussion of the Dust Bowl... I thought this was part of history class in general for everyone until some of you were like THAT'S FO REAL? I feel like it was also in Huckleberry Finn which was required reading for one of our English classes in my school...


Oh wait, it might have been grade school history that I remember it from then. No idea. Definitely didn't have to read Huck Finn in school though. Only books I remember having to read (there were definitely others) were Great Expectations, The Scarlet Letter, and Macbeth.

Question for you guys: My friend was telling me that he was crossing out a sentence in his writing sample as time was called and he got a second "pencils down" from one of the proctors. He didn't get a slip or anything but now he's freaking out that he might have a misconduct violation and not know about it. I told him I had never heard of anyone getting a misconduct violation after they left the test center, have any of you? I figure he's fine if he didn't get one of the notorious yellow slips.

You'll be fine. Just try to chill out and do fun things and enjoy the next few weeks before you get your score. And by do fun things, I mean drink.

I've heard it's amazing! It was really cheap (relatively) too so I'm super hyped about this. Definitely want to chec out the Ghibli Museum if any of you are interested in Miyazaki.

Since we're all waiting anyway, when are we supposed to get the results from the digital test? It has been almost a month. I feel like I saw someone say 5 weeks but I can't remember. Would've been nice to have that score before the June test but whatever.

According to the original disclaimer, we were supposed to get them 6 weeks after the PT. Yeah, that whole thing was a farce, and I feel like we were a bit conned by the fact they just used 73 and 74's RC as experimental. Seemed shady IMO, as most people who would even know about the digital pilot were probably interested in taking the real thing, and to burn 2 fresh PTs from the past 2 for likely takers seems a bit slimy

Yup, this. I can't stop running "best case, worst case" scenarios.... also I thought I'd be MORE productive at work AFTER the exam but waiting for the scores proves to be more distracting than preparing for the test. Seriously, LSAC, why does it take so long to grade a scantron?
