I've been writing my PS for over a year now, but I feel I'm finally on the right track lol. Other than that, I'm just wrapping up some optional essays, but it's pretty much done, so the rest depends on the LSAT now 8)

Going to go see Kingsman. Looks like this one won't be as good as the first but should still be a fun ride.

Yeah, the instant I heard the first bars of Money for Nothing as the picture faded in I knew it was going to be an awesome movie. Not sure how i feel about the sequel--trailers haven't seemed super promising.

Loved it but have to admit it's been on a downhill slide since Vice. Haven't even finished the most recent season yet tbh because I keep losing interest

Was kinda fun but super mediocre overall. Imo they completely mishandled the Statesmen. Also wasn't very funny. Pretty disappointing.

I saw Kingsman then I started watching Empire (Money for Nothing) and I fell in love. SO pumped for the second one, catch my full review on Saturday

First real LR: Feel good about this. Pretty sure I did no worse than -3 to -4. Finished with two minutes to spare.

LG: 0 Most likely scenario by far. Anything more than -2 would shock me. I never finished a LG section with 10 minutes left before. Wowzers

Second real LR (3rd LR overall): I don't know what to think about this one. Fatigue set in and I could feel myself not being able to think as clearly as usual. Furthermore I distinctly remember my mind going blank on the questions in the mid teens. Nevertheless, I recovered a bit and finished on time and never had to take a pure guess on any of the questions.

RC: Didn't seem super hard. I removed targeted RC drilling from my preparation in the weeks before the test. I feel as if this was a big mistake.


So I find myself in the situation of being extremely confident on the first sections and having no idea how I did on the later two. Subsequently a score of anywhere between 160-172 wouldn't shock me.

You think the first instead of the second LR is the first real LR?


I also had 3 LRs and positive that my second one (3rd section overall) is the experimental. I noted & jotted down the first question or one that stood out to me--the pluto isn't a real planet one for 2nd LR-- in all my LR sections. Checked with a few ppl who didn't have an exp LR and none of them remembered that question & they remembered the ones from 1st and 3rd LR. I read on some blog that even among ppl with LR-LG-LR-LR-RC LSAC might've switched the location of the exp section... but i'm not sure how credible that is- have they done that before?

I remember reading somewhere that someone who closely follows LSATs said that there was evidence that they switched the LR experimental location between versions of the 3 LR test. IIRC he said it would be a first.

I think it's worth noting that across multiple sites people seem to agree that one of the 25q sections was super easy and the other pretty tough. However they are split on whether section 1 or 3 was easy. Given how standardized LR is i think it is more likely that they swapped the sections than the community being split down the middle and pretty far apart about the difficulty of the sections.

At least I hope so since if there is only 1 version I could be in trouble.

Then when that 3rd passage (judges candor), showed up I hated all of it. I didn't like any of the AC and sunk allllll my remaining time into it. I didn't even try to read the last passage, just did the fee questions on specific line and word references then penciled in guesses. I'm gonna guess I got the same score as June.

I had 3 RC, the 1st one seemed very difficult (25Q). The other two not so bad.

LG seemed fine to me, but one question tripped me off. I would guess that folks will worse on this LG than they are expecting.

I have exactly the same feelings as you, and I believe I have the same sections as you too. I think the 1st (25Q) and 3rd(26) LR is of median difficulty, and the 2nd one is relatively easy. But LG is kinda weird for me, maybe they are too short, and I worry about this part the most, while people are all saying that LG this time is very easy.
Can I know your score range of your last exam? Because I am thinking whether to cancel the score this time.


There is no way I am cancelling, because I have never seen a valid argument for it anywhere. I expect a 164 to 168 on this exam, but if I got lucky on some guesses it could be 170+. Even if you have a 170 on record, get a 160 on this one, and then retake in December, that's certainly no reason to cancel thus score. Even if your goals are Yale or bust, there is no reason to cancel a score.
