    I had an LG LR LG RC LR test and have an unhealthy obsession with figuring out if the real LG (round table) was my first or second LG section - I can't remember - leaning towards first. I think the 7 schools/theater performances was the first game in the fake LG section (even though amanda.m.maguire says it was real - her only LG game - how could this be??). Can anybody shed some light on this?

    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.

    rwest90212 - I think you've solved it. So you didn't have the supervised/unsupervised game?

    I had the schools game and the unsupervised/supervised

    My games were

    1) 7 schools visiting 5 art galleries
    2) Garden/furniture store with furniture, gardening and housewares
    3) Supervised/unsupervised game
    4) Circular game

    I only had 1 game section so these are all real.

    I kind of wish this test was disclosed just so I can see how JY would have tackled some of these questions.

    @"Return On Inference" I had two LG sections, but my real section had those games as well. I think I also remember a game about schools going to plays, but that was in my experimental section. The game about schools visiting art galleries was definitely in my real section.

  • msirchiamsirchia Legacy Member

    Was it me or was this test extremely difficult? I didn't really have too much trouble with the circular LG but the section as a whole was pretty intense. Also i found the LR sections were particularly difficult almost more so than they normally are.

    Am I alone in this feeling? Does anyone know if there will be a curve for this exam?

    Does anyone remember how many questions were in the third game of the real LG set? I think I made an error in my diagram because for one of the questions, two of the answers could have been correct based on my game boards :( Wondering how much damage was done

    I had three LR and felt like two sections were particularly tough. Can anyone confirm if the question about Country Y using a percentage of non-renewable energy was real?

    Think that was experimental I didn’t have that question. Or maybe I blacked out during half of LR and just don’t remember it.

    Can't remember - was this the art installation game or the students/plays game? I saw somewhere where someone said there were 5 in the circular table game and I think there were 6 in the first game which leaves 12 for the 2 middle games.

    Got LR LG LR LR RC. LG had circular board, too.Which LR is the experimental?

    Real LR
    1.Debates and discussions about false ideas 2. Rising apartment costs and economy improvement 3. Manufacturers competition and specialized suppliers 4. Electing politics outsiders (can’t remember if that was the same section) 5. Pretty sure one of the first questions in the real lr was about short stories and political messages. I don't remember the other and I think nutritional deficiencies was the second question in the real LR.

    1. Moon Gravity 6. Payroll & Tax Increases (Mayor v. Economists) - Possibly Experimental @"Simple Man" and others who had 2 LG confirm please, thanks!

    I definitely did not have a question about moon gravity. Not sure about 6.

    Might not be helpful - does anyone with two real LR's remember their second question of the 25 q section being a RRE about bacteria? This was my second LR section of my three - and I'm hoping to figure out if it was actually experimental. Thanks!

    Hi,
    Can anyone tell that is 7Sage courses include tutor(one to one interaction) or not? I read here https://bestlsatprepbook.com/7sage-lsat-courses-review/ that 7Sage biggest disadvantage is no real tutors.
    Anyone who is using 7sage course please explain.

    @jhonsndrson16 Hey! Tutors aren't included when you purchase a 7sage course, but there are 7sage tutors available if needed. In the link below you'll find a list of approved tutors and how much they charge. Hope this helps.

    Just so you know, that page contains outdated information about 7Sage.

    It says, “LSAT prep test papers are not included with the 7Sage course. You will have to buy it separately.” But students do not need to buy LSAT PrepTests separately to use with the course. PTs come with the course as printable e-docs.

    I took off last week, but still feel tired/burnt out. I think I'm going to take this week off as well and just relax. Even if I start studying again this week I don't think it will increase my score or anything because I'm so tired haha. I hope everyone gets some rest this week! I can't believe we will be getting our scores next week. Does anyone think we might be getting them earlier?

    Hey you July LSAT takers,

    Reading on here I see various comments discussing which the experimental section was. Curious how you figured this out right after taking the test.

    Thank you and forgive my not knowing everything.

    Hey! Since people had different experimental sections, people were able to deduce which sections were the real/experimental. For example if someone had two LG sections, they would know that their two LR sections and RC section were real. Someone with three LR's would know that their RC and LG were real.

    This is a thread about the July 2018 LSAT, so I'd appreciate if you can post another thread if you would like to talk more about it! :wink:

    I may be wrong, but I don't think there are any LSAT online courses that include one-on-one tutoring in the price range of $179 (3 months) - 749 (18 months). Plus, you can always ask questions on each page with #help and also you can post questions here on the Forum.

    As @Kermit750 mentioned, 7Sage has a list of approved tutors:

    I commend you for that. I’ve just been studying 4 hrs per day for 2 days a week since the lsat. Haven’t taken another PT yet. I’m not sure how realistic a September retake would be at this point since it’s coming up so soon and I could only have a few weeks of additional PTs under my belt. I’m glad November’s an option.

    I've heard that they usually release scores early, but from what I understand LSAC is trying to be more punctual.

    "A Note from LSAC’s President Regarding LSAT Score Releases

    I know that waiting on your scores is difficult, and I am writing to assure you that we are making changes to permit quicker score releases, while also maintaining our commitment to accuracy and fairness. We will have additional information on specifics later this spring.

    In the meanwhile, for the rest of 2018 we will set the release dates on the scores on an aggressive timeline to minimize your wait time, and stick to that schedule to minimize any anxiety about those release dates.

    I want all candidates to know that we will always put students first and work hard to support your journey to law school and the legal profession. Our justice system needs your help, and we are hard at work developing more and better ways to support your pathways. Keep your passion for law and justice."
