Sorry to be that guy, but you do have to interview to be admitted right?

Depends on how behind they are. But yeah, they're trying to pretend they're not 100% numbers driven :lol:

RC was my best cold...then -5 on the actual, worse than any practice test (n > 10) :shock:

Really could have used a couple extra questions to bump up my 171 a few notches

Either that, or somebody made a mistake and they had to reenter all recipients all over again.


My pet theory is that there are still a few slots left and they're having a deathmatch to see which adcomms get their favorites in.


My theory is that they'll put us all in a dome, hunger games style, and just let us fight it out. Maybe with some logic game elimination rounds.


At this point I would def be down for that.


Noooo logic games is my worst section!!!!!

*blends in with mud & leaves peeta-style until RC rounds begin*


What kind of black magic is this? Who actually is best at RC?!

+180. Just about to write the same thing


Logical reasoning was my best section but I would pick games over RC any day.

Do you have to wait to receive email account info before applying for finaid? Sorry, I am still a bit confused about the aid application process even after looking at the website

Yes. No need to feel sorry - just turn down the offer when you get JS1 or JS2 and we will gladly forgive you. Well, I don't know about others. But I will. :twisted:

Anyone else HATE the "which sentence summarizes the main point" questions? Should be easy but we're always my worst questions

Even though it's difficult to remain that optimistic, I certainly appreciate all you do for us waiters

+1

I just find it unbelievable that it'll top out around 600 instead of 800 this year

& statistically they have to start admitting LSAT<25 at some point, which doesn't seem to have happened much in previous waves

/fingers crossed

Most of us are either on here to cope with anxiety from waiting for a js2, waitlist, or a ding. Now is prob not the best time to post on this page about the financial aid papers that you need lmaoooo :wink:

Since LSAT seems to be the fad atm... I was not a big fan of AR sections. Not because it's difficult, but because that section seemed to be the section most liable to curveballs.

Naturally, I wasn"t happy when I saw the AR section. Turns out the June 2016 LSAT contained only linear and grouping games. Had 10 minutes left, and I was fine with RC too (had 5 minutes left). Thought I finally dominated the test. Then I found out I was destroyed in the first LR section. Sigh.

RIGHT. like, my biggest thing is that if you mess up on 1 rule on a game then you mess up like 5 questions at once. and they have weird games!

Do we really expect a school that just started taking the GRE to put so much faith in a branch of the LSAT?
