This is so sad to read!! You killed your prep and definitely deserve to at least hit your goal. Hopefully you’re just overthinking and you actually got a 175!

I think it's a very high
likelihood they'll come out before the new year. In my experience they add a week on to the estimated arrival date, probably to give themselves a time buffer and to throw off
the hordes of lurkers waiting for grey day.

Hey everyone! I'm trying to figure out which LR is real (I had 2 25 question sections). For the people who only had the two real LR's: do you think that the 25 question section was harder or the 26 question section was harder?

I'm leaning 11 I think. 12 seems like a stretch.


11 and 12 would be clutch!


jagerbom, is it you? you are unrecognizable with the new name.

how'd it go?


Haha yes it is me. Sorry felt like switching it up a little while ago.

It felt great man. i crushed it! Everything seemed to go flawlessly and didn't have any hiccups. I actually think I could have scored better than my PT average. Really focused on my "mantras" for each section and sticking to a calculated and swift approach.


nice!! tamed the beast

applying this cycle? where other past regulars at.. alexandros, 34ip.. ?

Guys I had 3 LR experimental sections so my mind is kind of blown by all the question types I encountered & I can't distinguish real from experimental in terms of type. Would you all who had only 2 LR say mod edit: asks for too much specific info

Had two RCs, not bad - both of em.
LR was a bit trickier than usual? Most worried about this section.

Hoping for that 168 8)


Hoping for that 168 as well. Feel pretty good about the whole thing except I had to guess the entirety of game 4...

On the day scores are released, your little icons on the LSAT Status page will turn grey. This means scores will be released in waves that day.

If the curve is the same as September I’m guessing I’m somewhere between 165-172. I’m pretty confident I missed no more than 6 on the LRs and RC combined. I’m usually a -3 or so on LG but I guessed more than usual on the last problem and I didn’t have time to answer the final substitute question.

I would be ecstatic with anything 167+. Good gpa, good softs so it’ll be what’s needed to break into the T14s.

Hopefully this is the extent of the damage.

As always, the most difficult part of the test is breaking the seal


computer images? can you elaborate?

JFC people how hard is it to not talk about this shit?

e. I'm getting tired of going through this, so just to reiterate the policy is super draconian and don't try to find the line:

TLS Moderators wrote::idea: :idea: :idea: :o This is a warning. This is likely your only warning; you are unlikely to receive any further warnings.

Please be advised that discussion or solicitation (including, but not limited to, PMs and online chatrooms) of any questions or answers from the June 2017 LSAT with anything more than an extremely broad level of specificity will result in a temporary or permanent ban. This may include a permanent ban on your IPs if necessary, which will block you from even viewing the TLS forums. Permanent IP address bans for LSAT discussion have been issued in the past.

Examples have been included for your reference below. This is not an exhaustive list. It is not a defense to say that your overly-specific discussion of an LSAT question did not exactly mirror one of the examples - you will still be banned. Linking to other online materials/discussion of the LSAT questions is also prohibited.

Please note that you agreed not to discuss specific LSAT questions and answers when you completed your signing statement when taking the test. The LSAC considers it a violation to discuss specific questions and answers; the LSAC will act accordingly upon discovering discussion of specific questions and answers. Be advised that the LSAC and its agents monitor this board.

Analytical Reasoning Example wrote:1. Games were hard. Okay.
2. Yeah, on the second question for the second game, I wasn't sure if C was just on Tuesdays or Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Ban.
3. No, the order is ACDBBE. Ban.
4. What about Question Four? If C can't go on Tuesdays, then it has to be Wednesday right? Ban.
5. You guys are stupid. The answer to Question Four and Five is D. Ban.
6. No, the answers are CDAABE. Ban.
7. C'mon guys. How can you not know all of the answers? Ban.

Logical Reasoning Example wrote:1. I thought the LR sections weren't too difficult. Okay.
2. What answers did you all get for the coffee growers question? Ban.
3. I got A. Ban.
4. That's weird, I thought it was either B or D. Ban.
5. But it was a parallel reasoning problem. Ban.
6. Damn it, I knew I should have picked B. Ban.
7. Hold on guys, I think the mods might get upset if we keep this up. Never a good sign.
8. Let's trick them by disguising what we're saying. So, hypothetically, if I were a coffee grower..... Ban.
9. You would be displeased with government regulation of pesticides. Ban.
10. But not price controls. Ban.
11. Is that because, hypothetically, price controls would raise prices and revenue? Ban.
12. It's just a cost problem in general. If you were a coffee grower, the legal pesticides would, hypothetically, cost more. Ban.
13. Whoa, it's just like Question 13 from the second LR section in PT 39. Ban.
14. Guys, maybe we should create a chatroom to discuss this. I started one: tinychat.com/letscheatontheLSAT Ban.
15. If you guys could PM me about this, that'd be great. Ban.

Please note that this warning applies to the Reading Comprehension section as well as the writing sample.

If you are in doubt as to whether your drafted post will run afoul of this warning, do not submit the post. You have been warned.

If you login to your LSAC account and look at your LSAT status page. Next to your 12/2/17 test date there are green arrow symbols. And when scores are being sent out they turn grey. Meaning that you will recieve your email with your score and/or those then newly changed grey arrows turn into your score and percentile etc. Which one happens first depends on the wave your score comes out in. THis passed sept I saw my score on the LSAC website before I got the email by a couple minutes i think.

I received the email but I was not ready to find out my score yet, I clicked on the email thinking I will have to scroll down or log on to LSAC to find out and in the meantime I can just keep calm .....needless to say they tell you your score like on the top 3 lines of the email.... :roll:
