⚖ Official September 2019 LSAT Discussion Thread ⚖

edited September 2019 in September 2019 LSAT 276 karma

Hey 7Sagers,

Here's the official September 2019 LSAT Discussion Thread.

Please keep all discussions of the September 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)

    Anyone else think the Logic Games section was the hardest one they've ever seen? I consistently get -3/-4 on LG and I only answered 11 questions on this one and guessed on the rest.

    I heard that the LG section with the animals (kittens etc. I think) was real. Can others confirm this?

    @"Shane C." yes, I had that one too

    Was the LG that had muscial sequence the real or experimental?

  • hibabubbahibabubba Alum Member

    That LG section was brutal. I've never seen anything like the flowers game.

  • 115 karma

    The first question on the second game needs to be re-evaluated. Made me waste so much time on supposedly “easy” question. Is it even possible for two answer choice comply with all the rules?

    Can confirm. The (Cat/Dog), (Flowers) and (7 display circular) LG section was the hardest I have ever taken. I walked out after this section. There is only supposed to be one crazy game per newer LSAT and this one felt like there were 2.5....

    Cancelling score and retaking.

  • youbbyunyoubbyun Alum Member

    O wow LG was tough. I had 2 LG. Which one was experimental? LG LR LG RC Lr. I think the first LG is real. Anyone only have 1 LG?

  • osclsatgalosclsatgal Member

    I had two LG - was the LG section with the 7 items lined up in a circle real?

  • youbbyunyoubbyun Alum Member
    1755 karma

    @oliviacallan yes I believe that was real. That section was brutal. Anyone else feel similar???

    Sorry. Admittedly my phrasing could have been better but I was responding to ZCohen who asked if it was the hardest they'd seen. My confirmation was that it was the hardest seen, not that it was the real game.

    @"patel.2780" might be able to tell us though because it seems that they got two RC sections.

  • JPCAY12234JPCAY12234 Member

    I consistently get -0 or -1 on Logic Games and that section was the most brutal I’ve ever seen.

    I’m not even sure the Flower one had enough restrictions.

    Did anyone with 2 LR sections have a question on Swahili temples?

  • 115 karma

    I had only one LG section. I usually get -4 but I think I only got 10 to 11 questions right this time. The LR sections seem a lot easier and RC was just as expected. You guys think it’s worth canceling?

    If you think you only got 10 or 11 right that means you got 12 or 13 wrong. Not a great start because that a -12 to 13 baseline before taking into account potential errors in LR and RC.

    Maybe keep if you dont have a score on file. Its generally good to show improvement (and you can blame the new digital testing format in addendum. If you have a score on file and this is potentially much worse, cancel. I dont think its a positive if your score dips... it might raise some red flags.

  • rbrevillerbreville Alum Member

    I had 3 LR(I’m unsure as to which we’re real) , 1 RC (the one with lies/mistakes) and 1LG(the one with the flowers)

    I feel pretty strong about this test

  • jacoblokashjacoblokash Alum Member
    58 karma

    Wow, that was insane. I only had one LG section and it was the one with the flowers, and kittens/puppies. Hardest I've ever come across; I could answer maybe 13 and I usually get -2/-0. I have a feeling that the Swahili temples question LR section was experimental. Can any confirm?

    it is real, and the hardest lg section in my life. I only had one lg today so can confirm that.

    Wow. LG. First two games we’re uncharacteristically time consuming so bu game 3 i was flustered. Misread a rule in the flower game and well... seems like they finally broke the trend with this one. Rest of the test was very normal.

  • jessicacejessicace Alum Member

    Does anyone remember how many questions the flower game had? I'm trying to estimate my score

  • 115 karma

    If everyone does bad on this logic game section, is LSAC going to curve our scores? I’m confuse.

    They could but it would probably only be a point or two. (e.g. -11 or -12 for 170) instead of the typical -10

    pardon my french but f.ck this LG. f.ck this! nothing could have prepared me for this f.ckin nonsense

  • _iamnw96_iamnw96 Alum Member
    437 karma

    Hardest LG section I’ve ever done and I must have done at least 50 LG sections total in my studying. I usually score -1/-3. This time, I think I bombed two of the games, and the other two I’m sure I didn’t get all right. I don’t even know what to do, most likely going to cancel.

  • _iamnw96_iamnw96 Alum Member
    437 karma

    Also, my test center had so many technical difficulties and we started a full two hours later. Is this sufficient grounds to complain to LSAC?

    To those who take the test today, I wanted to ask if the tools for highlighting and underlining were easy to use for the RC. Were you provide scratch paper to make the lo res summaries for the reading comp? How easy was it the diagram to the arguments for LR?

  • tristan.locke1tristan.locke1 Alum Member

    Any idea if the personality elasticity for first born children was in the experimental section?

    Highlighting- easy to use.
    You get a booklet of scratch paper for the entire test, it's more than enough if you use front and back. diagramming is the same as normal.

    Yes. Definitely real. I had that one. I only had 1 LG section, and had three LR sections.

    That LG was absurd. Every game had its unique component to trip people. Holy shit.

    The stylus was very responsive. I enjoyed the tablet format. Was exactly like 7 sage although I only practiced on a desktop. I HATED the scratch paper they provided. There’s a giant watermark in the middle and it was honestly so distracting. Maybe it’s just me.

  • 115 karma

    The first game was time consuming, the second game was tricky because of one word, the third game didn’t have a lot of restriction and the fourth game, I don’t think a lot of people even attempt.

    I think the fourth game was actually pretty easy and the writer knew most people would waste their time on game 3.

    Four difficult games. I don't know how it's possible for anyone to be able to finish within the time limit.

    I had a really hard time using the highlighter on RC
