    Can anyone confirm if the LR mentioning Homer is a real LR or experimental?

    Thinking this one was real. It was an analogy type question right? If so, then yes one of my 2.

    i can't even remember what type of question it was honestly. i just remember being like "@lsat why do ya'll love homer so much"

    @whitepantherz From what I'm hearing, you either got a game about city workers OR the school/theater.

    On the reddit thread, someone mentioned having only one LG and the 7 school plays was one of them.

    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?

    It was real

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

    let hope. i had the same order as you and my first two were harder than the last (S4) imo.

    I honestly don't remember a single question from LR except the teddy bear one now LOL

    same, I spent like 2 mins on that question and I had no idea what to pick lol

    I think the answer was one re: that the kids tend to choose bears with features similar to those they already own. > @AngusMcGillis said:

    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.

    What do you mean by that? I don't know what "-11, -12" means. To get a 170?

    I think it's unfair that they recycled a test that wasn't entirely sealed. Revealing the type of a specific logic game gives some test takers an unfair advantage.

    What do you mean by "wasn't entirely sealed" ??

    The were recycling a test that wasn't suppose to have been released at all. Test takers discussed the question types. Powerscore predicted which test would be recycled, and gave tips one the question types to prepare for. They were encouraging people to study circular games because they guessed which test was going to be recycled.

    Well that's fucked up

    I wasn’t a fan! I thought the passages themselves was relatively straight forward but half of the questions were really rough! Like the ones that asked what the 2 passages agreed on or how the 1st passage would apply the theory mentioned in the 2nd. I wasn’t sure how the passages really related.

    Man, I'm not gonna lie -- I briefly looked over those Powerscore predictions and so I knew that there was a potential circular game lurking in the shadows, but I figured that LSAC would never re-administer an exam so quickly.

    Knowing the reputation of the 4th game + knowing that the section wasn't experimental definitely played some sick psychology on me during the timed exam. In the end, all my mistakes are my own, but man that's such a weird and twisted thing to run into during an LSAT.

    I’m so confused, I had the LG-LR-LG-RC-LR and thought my second section was the real and the first was experimental. People are saying the first one was real?? Could’ve sworn the circular one was in my second section. What about a LG prompt on someone standing in the Front/Side/Back... was that real or experimental?

    I had LG (super hard) LR LG (sigh of relief... jk this one’s experiment fool!) RC LR

    Honestly, after the first LG I couldn’t even remember how to speak English ? it took me a solid 5 minutes to collect myself.

    The LR is all a blur. I remember teddy bears, dinosaur/bird fossils, serious runners and their stupid running shoes, advertisements for auto dealerships, and something about type I and type II diabetes..

    It all happened so fast!

    Whoooo! I had LG-LR-LG-RC-LR. I'm glad that everyone confirms the circular game was the real deal. I wasn't ready for it, but I felt it was easier than the experimental. The experimental mirrored more common LG types, so I thought that was the real thing. However, I found it much harder than the first section. Part of it could have been that I didn't expect having two LG sections in the first half, but I'm glad the first prevailed.

    I was slower than average on the first LR section, and faster than average on the second. I don't know if that means anything, I think I became hyper focused on the the first and maybe over compensated on the second. Regardless, I hope they average each other out.

    I will say I thought the RC was extremely easy. I don't know that I have ever read and understand every passage so easily. Perhaps I was just in the zone for it, but I really did feel more comfortable and in tune with the RC than I ever have.

    I did some prayers before and after the test hat everyone did well today. I extend that towards y'all!

    Okay so now I’m remembering my 2nd LR section. I’m pretty sure it was 26 qs and question 24 was a really hard q about a photo this kid found of his aunt, Jamaica 1972. Question 25 was two statements about taxes increasing and which of the following applies to one but not the other. Anyone remember that who didn’t have an experimental LR?

    I remember that section but don't know if it was 26 questions (thought it was maybe 25)? I thought the mayor/economist taxes increasing applies to one not the other was a toughie, was hoping it was experimental (it was my 2nd of 3 LR)

    From what I understand, not everyone who gets three LRs receives them in the same order. So you could’ve gotten the experimental one second and it could’ve been someone else’s third. You’ll have to just base which was your experimental one on the questions you remember

    No African countries or front/back/side for me - but did have round table. Round table was definitely real - I did have fake LG section but can't remember much about it...other than no African countries or front/back/side...

    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

    Michaela - I'm confused too but I think we can resolve it. I believe U had to be alone and J couldn’t be with K or something was fake. Art Installation, something with gardens, super/unsuper, and round table was real. This was my first game in LG LR LG RC LR test. I don't think your front/back/side could have been in the same game as round table? Front/back/side must have been with U had to be alone and J couldn’t be with K or something - wait...now I'm confusing myself because I remember all of the games you mentioned except Front/Back/Side - something isn't matching up...maybe U had to be alone and J couldn’t be with K or something was the something with gardens game so it's real....I think I just made our confusion worse!

    Why would LSAC reuse a test that was originally thought of as more difficult than usual? Aren't that wanting consistency with the test difficulty? Stressing that this test will ruin my score since it was harder than the other PT I took.

    I don't really remember the Belize passage at all though. Yet RC felt good, hopefully makes up for my lackluster LG performance.

    SAME I can’t figure it out!! On Reddit they’re saying the real LGs were Art (Super or unsupervised), 5:7 schools, circular, and furniture, housing, gardening (or whatever FHG stood for) but I don’t think those were in the same section for me?? I also thought my second section was real (and harder) not the first

    I also had the 7 schools/theater performances question in the same section with the circular. Best I can figure, this "city workers" question that PowerScore is talking about was switched out with the schools/theaters on this go-round. They're assuming that the test was verbatim Feb 2014. I think eventually they'll figure it out and recant.
