Hey 7Sagers,

Here's the official June 2022 LSAT Discussion Thread.

REMINDER: Under your Candidate Agreement, you may not discuss the details of any specific LSAT questions at any time. For the June LSAT, general discussion of what sections you had, or how difficult you found a given section, or speculation about which sections were scored or unscored, is prohibited until after 9pm ET tonight. So please be patient for just several hours.

Posts that violate these rules will be taken down and may result in disciplinary action from LSAC. Let’s work together to ensure the test is fair to everyone, and not share information before everyone has taken the test.

Some examples of typical comments:

The following comments are okay 🙆‍♀️
- the section on Cambodian woodworking really had me second guessing everything.
- a few of the games had me confused but think I was okay.
- overall fair test, struggled on a couple of RC passages (damn you polymorphic molecules) but think I was okay hoping for a -2 or -3

The following comments are over the line 🙅‍♂️
- the passage on Cambodian woodworking didn’t count.
- I had Cambodian woodworking, Fireflies, and rice farming in Iowa so Lithuanian Lithograph Libraries was experimental.
- fair test but struggled on a couple RC passages (polymorphic molecules anyone? Thankfully it didn’t count). Don’t want to take again in June
- Anyone know if Polygamist Societies in the 1880s was real or experimental?
- Please tell me that polygon dice game didn’t count

Good luck to everyone taking the June LSAT!

Please keep all discussions of the June 2022 LSAT here!

    this is only tangentially related but do we know if they're ever going to disclose a test again? It's been two years and some newer PTs would be really nice, plus it'd be cool to take one where we're able to see how we actually did on the real test.

    The first RC section killed me, second one was much better
    LG felt pretty straightforward nothing crazy
    LR was also difficult for me! flagged more qs than usual
    good luck everyone :)

    I had 2 RCs. The first one was the hardest RC I have ever done. Definitely panicked a little, which affected my performance on the LG (normally get -1/-2, but I think this one would be -3/-4). I was able to keep it together for the second portion, but man, that was honestly the most dreaded scenario (2 RCs) for me. ..

    LR RC LG RC
    Is it just me? I was completely lost for the second RC. The first was fine... If the second one counts I am definitely screwed...

    RC LG RC LR

    First RC had a game on a political leader being flexible with morality. Also had a science passage talking about the life of stars equation to the life of galaxies and how scientific simulations aren’t advanced enough to predictably estimate information about the galaxies. Also discussed Newtonian (sp) fluid? Felt confident in this section and LG.

    Second RC section was harder for me, but possibly because RC is not my favorite section on the LSAT and I had already pushed through one RC section. Had topic on plants adapting to native & non-native surroundings…

    LR was more difficult for me, but again I feel that going through two RC sections probably contributed to it.

    I am glad to hear that others found some of the passages especially challenging. Obviously two RC sections is far from ideal for most students. I also found the LR more challenging than usual. Logic games were pretty fair. Now the wait begins!

    Curious about how others feel that had two LR? I had LG/LR/LR/RC.

    I felt fortunate in that the exam resembled PT's structure I am used to, but I typically do not perform well on RC (I knowingly sit between two answers and will pick the wrong one), and left feeling confident in this section (gymnast maneuvers, jury selection transformation, and two other). Both of the LR sections gave me trouble so I don't feel great about either of them... at all.

    I had the same distribution, although in order LG/LR/RC/LR. Felt similarly that RC and LG were very manageable. The first LR section was kind of difficult but the second felt more straightforward than normal.

  • I had LG/LR/RC/LR
    The logic games started fine but third and fourth game came out of nowhere for me, game 4 had a team thing I never really figured out.
    Two Lr first was HARD second was okay, and my RC seemed decent.
    Really hope the first LR was expiremental. congrats to everyone for finishing. This exam sucks and it doesn't get any easier.

    RC-LG-RC-LR

    Am the only one who was sweating on logic game #3? I couldn't push out any inferences and was forced to brute force. I'm glad I completed game #4 before returning to #3 so hopefully I was able to minimize the damage in that section.

    Both RC sections felt very fair to me but I was lucky to have some background in a couple of the passages that made the readings a bit easier.

    Felt exhausted on the LR section but it was overall manageable. I think they threw in a difficult question within the first 10 questions but I could be mistaken.

    Best of luck to everyone!

    I usually am pretty good with LG and get the games done within the time but the 3rd and 4th game ate up my time making me guess on a couple of questions. I hope the first LR was the experiment for me. I don’t know if I couldn’t focus because I was so mad about my LG performance or if it was harder then the other LR section.

    No, it's very anticlimactic. There really should be a completed confirmation, but there's not. You can go to your ProctorU account and it should say "fulfilled' next to your scheduled time!

    Weird LSAT Experiance - LR-LG-RC-TOLD Experimental?

    I had LR which I found very difficult but I think I pulled through. LG was harder, but not crazy, then RC was quite easy. BUT my last section was a experimental that was a variation on logic games with survey questioins. Did anyone else get this? It was told in BOLD this is an unscored section, and it seemed like they were testing something new? Lemme know if this happened to anyone else?

  • sgriffgorsgriffgor Monthly Member
    96 karma

    @"Airdire AB" I did not get that but it makes sense to me. The current logic games section will end soon — in 2023. They now need to come up with a totally different analytical reasoning section. You can read up on it online!

    @"Airdire AB" Same here! Myself and a friend both had the survey last. For me it was RC-LG-LR-Survey. I was quite surprised.

  • Emily SloanEmily Sloan Monthly Member

    @sgriffgor Makes complete sense actually considering the survey was regarding which notes we took to answer LG questions, and how necessary we found the notes to be to answer the question.

  • atticusbinch00atticusbinch00 Alum Member
    240 karma

    Doesn't seem fair to me that some folks were told which section was experimental while some weren't. I don't care if they need it for researching the future of logic games, it's not a standardized testing experience when some are told which sections are experimental and others are not.

  • Emily SloanEmily Sloan Monthly Member
    81 karma

    @atticusbinch00 It wasn’t a typical experimental section. It was a survey regarding using paper for diagramming/ notes etc. for the changes to LG coming in 2023. It wouldn’t have been possible to grade the section as it was a survey.

    I had the exact same test. I was extremely surprised they actually said it was experimental. What did you think about the questions? I thought they were pretty easy compared to the LG questions I got.

  • Airdire ABAirdire AB Monthly Member

    @mstautfest-1, I was suprised at first, but I don't think they had a choice, we would of known it was experimental either way. I found them quite easy compared to the rest of the exam for sure. How did you find the LR ?

  • sgriffgorsgriffgor Monthly Member
    96 karma

    @atticusbinch00 I agree with you and let’s face it, the LSAT is not fair. I’m seeing that for the June test, some people had their exam kicked off with an extremely difficult RC section. Those people have to wonder for the entire rest of the test, was that experimental? It’s also a big confidence zapper. So certainly compared with having an easy survey at the end, that exam was difficult. I also think the test I took was “easier” (less stressful) based on comments I’m seeing. In my opinion, small factors like section order and the difficulty of the experimental section can affect scores. That’s the LSAT roulette.

    RC-LG-RC-LR
    English is my second language and this is my first time to take a proctored official LSAT. The first RC made me panic. I held my breathe to the point that I started to feel dizzy. LG is my strongest part in PTs, but I stressed out at Game 3 (partically because of my terrible experience in my first RC) and didn't get time to finish the rest of the games. During my 10 mins' break, I wanted to give up on this test. But I continued.
    The beginning of the second half of the test was a lot smoothier than the first half. I reminded myself to keep breathing as I concentrate on the test. My family thought my exam would finish at 1pm but it actually went to 1:30pm. They made some phone calls around 1:15pm when I was doing the last 10 LR questions. I was distracted and stressed again at the end of the test.

    Some takeaways from this "super practice test":
    1. Keep on breathing deeply while wading through
    2. Skip to the next game if having trouble setting up the current game
    3. Make sure I have a quiet environment to the end of the test next time
    4. keep on practicing!

    I think I can do a lot better next time!

    You can do better! Good thing you've taken some lessons from this experience. If you can, make sure you have your entire house to yourself when you take it next time. That way you're not anxious about someone getting unexpectedly loud.

    I have two LR, one RC, and last LG. I look at game 3, then skip to game 4, then back to 3, have a few mins left. I was interrupt one time during LR, asked me to pull down camera. If they can see my face, I dont see any reason, why would they need to yell at me at all, and the clock was still running, definitely not a pleasant experience. My connection was perfect all the time, it was just out of luck during break I went back 5 mins left, they complaint about my connection breaking off, the heck with it. I waited for some mins for tech to check my connection. My wife thinking I should complain. But you know what? I dont really care, I agreed the exam is a little none reasonable, make no sense for preparing for law school, but somehow, it is manageable. I will say the first posts about RC is none of what I have seen, I have the same section with the one RC, and I agrees with the content of the post about gym and body etc. Wasnot the best of the RC that I would have taken-mostly my fault for not following my routine, but it was my first taken, and I was quite consistent in RC scores, so I am not too worry. Two LR seems to be easier for me, the second one I end up with some time left.

    You're right but for the people who took the June 10th test and others who did not receive the experimental we were not given as nice of a distribution as these test takers were.
    For example I got RC-LG-RC-LR which is a really tough sequence because my brain is completely melted from reading two RC sections before an LR section. The experimental takers got their three scored sections in the first three sections which helped their mental vs the rest of us who were drained.
    Now, if LSAC had given everyone the same distribution for the first three then I wouldn't be complaining.

  • issalyssaissalyssa Monthly Member
    26 karma

    I was one of the people who got the experimental section on the 11th and my distribution was RC-LG-LR-EXP, which the moment the experimental section came, meant that my performance for the other 3 sections counted. I didn't have an extra section to count on, just in-case I received a difficult RC/LG/LR. I was hoping for an extra LR section since the LR given was much more difficult, so I was pretty disappointed once the experimental section popped up.

    This was my first time taking the LSAT and I am very glad that I will be taking it again.

    The proctor for the writing section was very strict in comparison to the multi-choice proctor(s). I was told I had to leave the room and grab my cell phone which I purposely did not have in the room because I didn't want to deal with it and they didn't explicitly state it needed to be in the room, only that it could be used as a mirror.

    I understand that having it in the room, turned off, could limit anyone from possibly cheating during a break and I am happy to go through all of the steps. A very small potatoes situation but one that still kind of boggled my mind.

    Additionally, some of my questions in the RC were highlighted. It was as if someone else had marked up a paper test except it's all electronic. When I told them something was wrong, I had very little assistance or guidance and no idea if I was suppose to keep going or not-- meanwhile my time was ticking away. Needless to say, I kept going to the best of my ability.

    Did anyone else have a weird situation like mine?
