Hey 7Sagers,

Here's the official January 2019 LSAT Discussion Thread.

Please keep all discussions of the January 2019 LSAT here!

Rules:

You can identify experimental sections. 🙆‍♀️
You can say things such as the following:

  • I had two LGs! Was the LG with "flowers" real or experimental?
  • I had two RCs! Was the section that starts with the honeybee passage real?
  • I had three LRs! Does anyone know if the first LR section with the goose question is real?”

You can't discuss specific questions. 🙅‍♂️
You CANNOT say things such as the following:

  • Hey, the 3rd LG was sequencing and the last one was In/Out, right? (Don't mention the game type)
  • The last question in the first LR section was a lawgic heavy MBT! Was the answer (B)? (Don't mention the question type or ask what the answer was)
  • What was the answer for the last question of RC? I think it was an inference question? Was the answer (C)? (Don't mention the question type or ask what the answer was)

Have fun discussing!

    I have two LGs. One is about flowers and apartments and one is about scientists. Could I know which one is experimental? I really messed up with the first one... Need to know which one is real to decide if I should cancel my score...

    The real RC is the one with a passage about astronomy and Native American rock inscriptions, if you were wondering

  • Peterpi719Peterpi719 Monthly Member

    So is the comparative RC the third passage or the first?

  • jakefan19960105jakefan19960105 Alum Member

    I had three LR trying to find out what what experimental my section three Q1 was very short and asking about [deleted by admin: no question type]

    That one had 25 right? If it did, I think that's real! And the lsat question was something about % of homes which get broken in that have/don't have alarm systems

  • batniki1batniki1 Alum Member

    alarm systems was one of the real LR

  • MaritzaaMaritzaa Alum Member

    Had three LR sections. I specifically remember two questions: writer(?) Poe and two planets (comparing with Jupiter). Were those Qs in the experimental section?

    I had three LRs and need to know which was real. For anyone that had two LR sections, in the LR with 25 questions (or do you remember in either) was the last question about acid on the skin?

  • 168hopeful168hopeful Alum Member

    RC passages (i don’t remember the order)

    1. Theatre and national identity (comparative passage)
    2. Placebo research - Kaptnuk

    Fourth one was Native American petroglyphs or whatever they're called. The crescent moon and the supernova.

    I don't remember that and I had both LG. I remember apartments, pillars, and east/west branch. Then there was one with mechanical engineers and interior designers.

    I remember almost nothing about the first LG, which I think was experimental.

  • 23 karma

    I had three LR and found my third section (LR) to be hard. I had LR RC LR LR LG.

  • arina185arina185 Member

    No, the last question for real LR with 25 questions was about home invasions/alarm systems

    I had 2 RC sections, sequence as follows: RC,LR,LG,RC,LR. I remember one RC was wicked tough - praying it was the experimental.

    One of the real LRs was significantly harder than the other. That was the one that ended with home invasion alarms I think. I had LR RC LG LR LG.

    That is a huge relief, thank you for replying.

    I think the last one had 25 qs which means it was real, since i had 2 26qs > @yegfigfwoihef said:

    I had the same order and I feel the exact same about the third LR section. Maybe it just felt harder because we were nearing the end of the test?

  • arina185arina185 Member
    44 karma

    I had the same order as you and from my understanding the first was experimental 26qs 3rd was real 26qs and fourth was real 25 qs. I found the third one to be so hard, but maybe it was cause i just did an experimental LR and an RC was my brain was mush. > @Emily2122 said:

  • I had 3 LRs: LR LR RC LR LG

    If I recall correctly, the first LR with 26qs had a question about ghosts.

    I remember stomach acid of cows. I don't remember skin acid? But I understand the LR experimental was 26 Q. Unless there are different experimentals?

    And acid of cows was also burglaries I believe right?

    I think some had a 26q experimental and some a 25q experimental.

    Can we confirm that one LR had 26 Qs?

  • ExcludedMiddleExcludedMiddle Alum Member
    edited January 2019 737 karma

    Yes, one LR had 26 questions. The other had 25.

    I'm so disappointed that the bank game was real.

  • qwerjudiceqwerjudice Member

    Does anyone know whether the LG section with the last one containing word like “originate” is real? I can’t remember the exact context and setting, only that one condition is “L can lead to at least two xx”?

    Same, the other was like all the game sections I have ever done. Games is my strongest section but all these games felt so weird, especially compared to the other set. I felt like they were all somewhat complicated, compared to the first one where the first is usually a freebie and so on. Super upsetting
