trying to think of the tough LRs...

monkeys and screwdrivers was a tough one

people watching themselves exercise on video tripped me up

the one about evolution not always leading to optimal survival, with the example of moose antlers

govt secrets and abuses of power too

Is this thread the best support group for LSAC induced depression?

Ur my lsat twin. LG best section I was expecting a crazy hard last game bc I had 20min left going into it but nope. And F that RC. I hope it didn't kill my score. I wish it was hard LG and easy RC. We'll find out in a few weeks how it really went

My thoughts on the test: RC overall is not hard, but I do think the comparative passage is hard. The 26 question LR: a bit hard for me. The 25 Question LR: moderate/easy. LG: First 3 games very easy, game 4 seems also easy, but i spend lots of bruce forcing and end up guessing on the last question.

same same same here

LG is always my best I was hoping for a hard one to push down the curve and to offset my mistakes in RC
guess not going to happen :roll:


I was literally waiting for the 4th game to be super experimental cause of all the time I had then when it wasn't I knew this test wasn't gonna go well.

I no joke changed my answer on this one 7 or 8 times. All those were rough though.

What's the ETA on getting these back? I know the Feb one was back way before they said. I ask because I'm deposited somewhere but planning to withdraw if I do well enough (and I should based on PTs).

After 100%. Easiest LG ever. RC was nuts. All the LR were consistently mild.

LG only had 1 small new twist.


Agree on all this, but new twist on LG??

Oooh! Apparently some lady at the front of the building was confiscating highlighters. Scandal! One of our proctors had to go down and get a number of highlighters from her.

There was also this one guy in my section who was just, oh my. I guess airhead would be a kind enough description.

We had one girl who had 2 last names on her ticket, but only one on her ID, she didn't get to test.

Then when I was on break another room was let out, this guy walks out of the room and then right infront of a proctor takes his phone out of his pocket! He realized he fucked up immediately but it was too late, he got kicked out. He was begging the proctors, said there were no no phone signs (there were plenty) and even threw his phone in the trash to show he wasn't trying to cheat.

The proctors I had were very efficient and nice, and the room/desks were great. Even though it was an hour drive I'll take there again if I have to retake in September.

I was the exact opposite. I mouthed "Yes!!!" to myself as I saw the last game because I suck at weird games and knew it was likely that I would go -0/-1 in LG, which I think I did.

Logical reasoning IMO was a bit harder than average, including the experimental. The RC wasn't that bad, aside from the psychological one which was difficult to understand. Comparitive passage was also difficult, though less. The LG section got easier as each game went down for me, the last being the easiest.
I would say this test followed the overall trend of recent tests by leading out with difficult questions as well.
DID ANYONE ELSE FEEL LIKE A SAD BAKED POTATO LEFT OUT FOR TOO LONG AT YOUR WEIRD AUNTS BBQ AT THE BEGINNING OF THE FIRST SECTION?

That evolution and exercise questions were brutal. Pretty sure those were both misses. Think I got monkeys and Gov abuse (this one was sneaky but really pretty easy if you read carefully) right.

Has the LSAT had RC passages taken from historical sources before (e.g. parliamentary debates in 19th-century Britain)? I had an experimental comparative passage like this, reminded me of the AP history essays.

Hello guys!

I feel good. Like really good. I had nearly my ideal section order with RC LR LG LR LG. The LGs were so incredibly easy I had fifteen minutes for the last game. Reading comp was definitely more difficult than average but I think I got through it. LR1 (26) was a breeze, LR2 (25) was a bit more difficult imo but still not impossible.

Overall... I want my score back.

Last mod edit: don't talk about the kind of LG game on the last LG almost tripped me up, thankfully I had like 8 fucking minutes to do it.

I don't think so, but as a history major this sounds awesome. More interesting than another jazz or impressionism passage.
