Hey 7Sagers,

Here's the official January 2020 LSAT Discussion Thread.

Please keep all discussions of the January 2020 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)

    I had 2 RC sections. Was the one that had a passage about courtrooms real or experimental?

    Which RC is the real one? I got one with quantum physics and one with forgery art

  • thatgtdude89thatgtdude89 Monthly Member
    90 karma

    Forgery art. And unfortunately for me that was my less confident RC section (I had 2) and it was my last section of the test. Wish the other RC counted lol.

    @TheTribeBoi i got these two as well LOL forgery art was the last section

    @dncdrc_04 same. Why do they have to put 2 RCs and have the one that counts be last when your brain is spent. Talk about being mean lol.

    @thatgtdude89 lol I didn’t finish the first one but found the one with forgery art easier than the first

  • willyuu_willyuu_ Alum Member
    57 karma

    Had two RCs--First one had a passage about prosecutorial misconduct and the second RC had a comparative on forgery art and one on how to delay aging. I thought my second set of RC was easier.

    LG is usually my best section but I experienced my first real LSAT anxiety attack during the third game (student presentations)...

  • thatgtdude89thatgtdude89 Monthly Member

    @dncdrc_04 some passages were easier but I felt rushed. Came back and did the first passage last and had to guess on a couple because I was running out of time.

    I'm confused as to whether people with 3 LR's can have the same experimental...or does absolutely everyone have a distinct experimental (which seems crazy to me).

    It's possible we had the same exp. I remember a question about moon/grav forces, blood substitutes, hdh/LDL, moral and beliefs, chimpanzees yawn, side dishes, restaurants removing menu items, architecture conference, figurines found at a site.

    He is guessing that it will be a max -10 questions to get a 170. He probably spoke with students regarding their experiences to get a feel for the difficulty. He may have info about the test from nonpublic sources. At least he has said that in the past in one of his podcasts.

    I apologize if this question doesn't really belong in here, but I was wondering if someone could give me insight on how similar 7sage's digital PT's are to the actual LSAT. Any insight will be much appreciated!
