    Crazy feeling to be done!! Hoping for no negative surprises with my score! Definitely more self-doubt after this one than normal PTs, but I believe that is to be expected.

    @ingramc2 In the LSAC e-mail they sent prior to registration, they state that all scores will be released on Thursday, April 29th at 9:00 a.m. EST provided you have a completed writing sample.

    I had the opposite feeling about LG. I finished with 11 minutes to spare and verified all my answer choices for each game. Maybe this was a product of playing through 10 very tough/unusual games on Thursday but nothing about LG felt overly difficult as the setups all seemed conventional to me.

    RC was the most difficult in my opinion. I think I struggled with the first passage which shook my confidence a little bit moving forward.

    LR seemed more or less like a typical PT but I struggled to focus a little bit, especially early in the section - probably test day nerves.

    Definitely agree with Julia's comment about being happy to have finished the test but doubting my score more than the typical PT.

    I am less worried about my score and have a dumb worry that it didn't submit right or something like that happened even though I know it did lol

    I will be patiently waiting for April 29th.

    Shitty experience. My 3rd take. The proctor booted me out of the test in the middle of my reading comprehension section as they claimed my video feed was off. The green light next to my built-in camera was on the whole time. Doesn't make sense to me. Anyhow, thanks to this I was out of the test for 3-4 minutes while they reestablished the feed. Wonderful way to ruin my retention of the passage I was working on. Will be filling out a complaint form but don't know if I'll have any luck getting a retake. Thoughts from anyone with experience requesting a retake would be much appreciated.

    I felt like 7sage prepared me for every single Logic Game except for the ones on the test today.
    RC felt easy (maybe because I loved the subjects they were about).
    LR felt normal.
    I do not feel entirely confident about the test today but I feel proud that I finally took the actual LSAT for the first time.

  • Avocat 2021Avocat 2021 Alum Member

    LG was definitely easiest: Basic sequencing, sequencing with a twist, basic grouping, double layer sequencing. If you did enough practice with these types of games, you will probably be fine. RC was hard, especially the passage about Mexican murals. LR was so weird: 4 disagreement questions. I have never seen so many of this particular type of questions on any LR before.

    had to same feeling with RC, first passage was kind rough for the first but the comparative for me killed me.

    in agreement with the LG/LR sections, pretty standard

    LG was probably the easiest section I've ever seen. I'm actually worried this tightened the scale. RC was 9/10 if not 10/10 difficulty. LR was standard.

    That marks three times in a row for me where I've had very easy LG and very hard RC- my worst combination. I'm sure others have similar experiences. The luck of this exam, luck that determines admissions, scholarships, and debt, never ceases to amaze and anger me. I think section luck needs to be talked about more- it matters so much.

    This is the last one for me, everyone. Glad to move on. I hope you all got the scores you needed.

    Had a horrible experience with the Proctor software not getting running for a full 35-40 minutes after I was supposed to start. By the time I started the exam all the anxiety I had worked to keep under control boiled over. I've been practice testing consistently where I want for the past month but today everything fell apart. I also had to use the bathroom at one point which means taking an unauthorized break. Super disappointed with this experience especially since for the most part the test was super doable in terms of the questions. I will be contacting LSAC because I cannot accept that the testing software isn't doing everything it can to reduce stress for the student.

    We had the same test. I feel like I got a good swing at all 76 pitches. The curve will probably be minimal, (maybe -6 to 170) but we've got a shot at 180! Hoping our guesses will end up correct

    During my test, (my camera light was on the whole time) the proctor sent me a chat that they were no longer to see me and wanted to take control of the screen to fix the issue- this notification was only noticeable if i had opened up the chat which was minimized on my screen so I didn't see it as I was currently in the middle of a section. 9 minutes later, they alerted me again that they could not see me and this time the chat promptly opened on my screen and I instantly let them take control and fix things, even though it took time away from my testing. Now I'm worried that the LSAC will flag/ cancel my score because of this issue. Should I take any steps to reach out and explain this situation or is it out of my hands? I feel like since they can verbally communicate at all times they could have done more to let me know that this was a problem instead of waiting so much time.

    I had the same issue. Log on to your LSAC account and file a test day complaint. You can try to get a retake if you feel it hurt your score, though no guarantees it will be granted. Other options are canceling and asking for a refund on future exam or keeping your score.

  • kmattkmatt Monthly Member

    All sections seemed rough for me. LG is my best (I average -1) and I had to completely guess on the last 3 questions because I ran out of time. RC was also so hard to comprehend. If I was allowed to say what I read I wouldn’t even be able to lol. LR was a little harder than normal but not crazy harder like RC. The amount of certain question types compared to others did throw me off a bit.

    LR is typically my best and I just was confounded really early on, got hung up on 7, 9, and 12. Usually do 10 in 10 min with very little issue but I was stuck at 7 11 min in and had to guess on more than I’m used to. RC seemed fairly straightforward and LG felt pretty easy

    I have averaged -2.1 for last 10 LG sections on PTs. This time I got REKT. I wouldn't be shocked if I got -7 or even -9 for that matter. I'm still holding out on the hopes that I managed like a -4 since I was really rushed at the end and can't really estimate my score

    No I did not. I have read that the two major sentiments regarding LG seem to be extremely easy or extremely difficult. While it could be different reactions to the same section I think its more likely different reactions to entirely different sections

  • Waffle23Waffle23 Alum Member

    Supposed to start at noon. Bc of connectivity/webcam issues didn’t get to start until around 2:30pm. Longest day ever. I got interrupted twice in the middle of the exam Bc my webcam apparently wasn’t showing video. I had an external one connected via USB. No issues when I did the equipment check. Sighs. Anyway I had a law-related passage, Mexican murals, water usage, and birds for my RC. LR included like 4 disag type qs and one on politicians dodging qs. Games included the one about grants/parks/roads.

    Afraid that I messed up on one of the earlier games Bc I hadn’t accounted that the rule could be diagrammed two different ways. Hoping I got most of the LG points though. Messed up on LR for sure. Felt I was stuck b/w 2 answers for like 5-6 qs. I think this was just bc I hadn’t practiced enough of the tougher LR qs. RC was average/ ok to me. Although that last passage about birds got me F’d up Bc I literally didn’t know the meaning of a crucial word in the passage. It wasn’t until I was reading over some of the qs/answer choices that I could finally figure out the meaning. Middle of the passage was still confusing though.

    Anyway. Good luck everyone. Maybe I’ll sign up for June, maybe I won’t. We shall see.

    My proctor interrupted me three times during the logic games section because he said my face wasn't in the video because I was looking down at my scrap paper??? Then he made me adjust my camera and kept making me adjust it up or down. He also drew an arrow on my screen to look at the chat even though he didn't write anything in the chat. SO FRUSTRATING! You should definitely try and appeal for a retake or something. UGH!!

    Order was LR RC LG for me. Had a hard time focusing on LR since it's the first section, but in terms of difficulty, it's on par with the mid to late 80s. There were 26 questions, and one of the late 20s was an intense curvebreaker. Games 3 and 4 are unusual at first glance but manageable. I skipped the third game then came back to finish it with time to spare. RC was the hardest for me. Topics were Mexican murals, bike trials, volcanoes, and IP law in that order. Last passage was comparative and really difficult. Hopefully the curve is generous but I doubt it will be.

    This happened to me in October, ProctorU claimed my internet went out even though I could still speak to the proctor and it threw me out of RC mid-passage. I filed a complaint and it was accepted but it took them a long time to get back to me. Score was cancelled and they gave me a voucher to retake.
