I wanna say like 74 or something is -9. It's rare though, and this one definitely seemed harder to me.

Does anyone know of an instance in which the TLS waiter's thread insisted a test was easy, but the curve was pretty generous (-11/-12/-13) nevertheless?

Rc was so hard! I actually just skimmed the last passahe and guessed answers for the last 5. Thank God for the easy LG. I FINISHED WITH EXTRA TIMEand that barely happens.

Wait so i had 3 LR sections. One was 25 and two were 26. Is there any chance the experimental was the 25 question one?

Had LR (25 Qs), LG, LR (26 Qs), LR (26 Qs), RC.

Does anyone remember a LR question about a girl washing and waxing her car?

Hi! I had 3 LRs, did anyone have a question about deserving praise for their moral choices?

Getting worried because I thought LR was pretty difficult and y'all over here saying it was a breeze or a mild inconvenience :oops:

I thought the first was fairly hard (like the last few questions especially), second fairly easy.

My take: two test forms today with that order, one with exp 1 and the other with exp 3. Check topics here: forum.powerscore.com/lsat/viewtopic…

Guys... From Jon Denning (powerscore)

So if your order was LR, LG, LR, LR, RC, some people's LR exp was 1, some 3. This is a first and I'm so annoyed. I don't think we're ever gonna figure this out. I'm gonna be in pain until scores are released.

If you had three LR, which one do you think was harder, S1 (first lr) or S3 (2nd LR). There's conflicting reports on this and it might help us figure out which one was experimental. (Someone should really make a poll for this because it would help out for people panicking about which one was exp)

Also, if you had only 2 LR, which one was harder, the 25 q one, or the 26 q one? This would definitely determine which was the exp.

I only had 2 LR sections, and I think I had two 26s (see earlier post about questioning two 26 sections vs. transfer error) and I saw someone else post they had two 26 sections too. So, I'm saying there's a chance

I had 3 LRs, with 25,25,26 questions, and I'm sure about that...
