    @"matthew.kobby.graham" that's criminal lol. the last LG was pretty hard. got -3 on that. was certain i was going -0 otherwise. i think the 3rd game was grouping, either H and O are both supervise or neither of them are supervised. @alenahluthens

    Which LR were real? Got LR LG LR LR RC

    My understanding is that the 3rd section was experimental

    what are you basing that on?

    Maybe I'm totally wrong, but I know my 3rd section was experimental from talking to another test taker at my center. I think everyone tends to have the experimental at the same time, right? (i.e. if mine was the 3rd section everyone's was, but maybe not).

    Am I the only one that completely biffed the Logic Games (my fault, i know)? I had an experimental logic games and it was quite easy; come to find out it wasn’t the actual LG :(

    My first Section of the LSAT was the LG that was the real one. It was a bummer because I normally perform well on LG and that one somewhat killed my confidence going into the rest of the lsat. I had little hope that it was experimental when I saw another LG but nope..the hard one was the real one

    This is EXACTLY what happened to me. What a way to start the test, right? Sigh...

    I would’ve preferred it being the 3rd section. I was like shell-shocked the first 3 or 4 mins of the second section because I usually get -3 on LG but I legit guessed on the whole circular table one....

    This Lsat is the exact LSAT from February 2014. That LG was brutal

    How did you know? I thought LSAC don't publish Feb tests; if they do they won't use it again

    It’s been confirmed on several forums. I also went through my prep tests. This LSAT and February 2014 are the only ones since 2003 to have the circular LG question

    Anyone have a guess on the curve? Overall seemed a bit on the easier end to me but maybe I just studied more for this one haha.

    I agree it's probably an easier test --- which makes me a bit nervous re: the curve

    Yeah I didn't think it was all that bad. guy from LSAThacks was saying on Reddit he thought the curve was -11, -12. Apparently it was the same test as feb 2014, which was difficult.

    @ilokmaca The real LG on today's LSAT was then:

    • Art installations 
    • Garden/Department store with furniture, gardening, housewares
    • City workers
    • 8 Diplomats/delegation sitting clockwise at a circular table

    It appears for me that my 3rd section on logic games (one containing Junior and senior XYZ) was the real one? Can someone please confirm

    I had three LR sections. One of the sections had a most logical counter response question with two people talking about contemporary art. One of the people speaking was like " Contemporary classical music is great art" and the other person was like "Nah it's not because it doesn't experience a wide range of emotions." Can anyone who had experimental LG or RC sections confirm this question as being real?

    I’m feeling super relieved and also super paranoid that I messed up bubbling. I agree that it felt a lil easier. I kinda messed up some on the first LGs, think I guessed on 2 qs. Loved the LG with the 1-8 circular diagram. Finally all the foolproofing from the early PTs paid off. I don’t remember anything about LR, I had LR-LR-LG-LR-RC. I thought my first LR was harder compared to the others (I think it was the one with the teddy bear question as like question 5). I was pretty happy about the order I got especially since RC was pretty chill and had fairly interesting topics. Real RC was about 2 diff women’s rights theorists during the french rev, sports, theory of everything..
    Good luck to y’all and let’s all try to chill and keep our shit together for the next couple weeks!!

    So for people that had 3 LRs (LR LG LR LR RC) did we generally decide the second LR was experimental?

  • ChaimtheGreatChaimtheGreat Alum Member 🍌🍌

    I thought the comparitive RC passage was killer. But I am looking at PT71 and PT 72 curve. This has not bearing on this test (between 71 and 72) but wow. LSAC was into hard tests in 2013-2014 apparently.

    My third LR: Dog who howls at trains

    Can anyone confirm which one was experimental?

    For those that had LR-LG-LR—LR-RC, with the 26 question LR passage being thE very first one, think that the first ten were harder than normal??? #4 and #5 tripped me up and ruined my timing for the rest of the section.

    Yep. I felt that the first LR section was abnormally difficult. I usually finish with 8-10 minutes to look over my answers but finished this one with only 4.
