⚖ Official January 2023 LSAT Discussion Thread ⚖

Cherry - Student ServiceCherry - Student Service Member Administrator Student Services

Hey 7Sagers,

Here's the official January 2023 LSAT Discussion Thread.

REMINDER: Under your Candidate Agreement, you may not discuss the details of any specific LSAT questions at any time. For the January 2023 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, Wednesday, January 18th.

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 January 2023!

Please keep all discussions of the January 2023 LSAT here!

    Took it this morning, second and final LSAT. Scored 168 in November and hoping for 172. Feel good about this test although the RC passage about omission bias was unlike any I'd ever seen before and I spent too long trying to figure it out. Good luck to everyone taking it today and tomorrow.

    This was my second LSAT with my first being the one in June. I scored 173 on the last one and was hoping to score a bit higher to improve my chance of getting into top tier schools and possibly tutoring jobs. I found thw reading comprehension and logical reasoning (I had two of these) fairly easy, but logic games was particularly hard to the point I think might have scored lower than last time. I found the grants game and the engineers game very difficult, ran out of time finishing them and had to guess a couple questions.

    Does anyone know if Friday's and Saturday's LSAT are the same or do they have two different tests? I assume they make two different tests but I was wondering if this has been confirmed?

    I was wondering this too but then I realized that we all get the same curve when stats are out so I assume we all take the same test. However, I don’t think it has been confirmed just a speculation I made.

    I wasn't able to take the test bc of technical errors somewhere between ProctorU and LawHub. Spent over an hour waiting anxiously for them to finally tell me I couldn't take it. I'm sure this situation is uncommon, but it happened to me! I was so emotionally distraught, and my entire day has been wasted (and now I have to dedicate a whole day to the retake again which would equal one day of not working (again)). Did anyone else have a similar experience?

    I had a mac os system and when downloading chat box, for some reason I cannot open the file. I called a number listed in the lsac email and a nice guy guided me through but still did not fix the problem. I reboot my home wifi and computer but still did not work. I was literally sweating and shaking at that point. Finally I decided to pull out my husband's laptop( with a windows system) and thankfully it allowed me run through. But still spent almost an hour just fixing the technical problem, really sucks. I still not sure why that happens.

    Which test did you have Fri or sat? I had Fri RC with a passage about an African American scientist making a discovery of some sort. Forgot the others besides a comparative passage revolving around some legal aspect or proposed legislation.

    Did either of you have RC as an experimental? I had this passage, but I also had two RC sections so I don't know if it was "real" or not.

    I had double RC. According to other test takers over on Reddit, the passage that had legally blond/Chaucer/jellyfish/Argentina vs. Uruguay was in fact experimental. My real RC was Malthus (france overpopulation), Intangible assets (brand names), architechts in practice vs. in school, and motion sickness in space. People who had only 1 RC had this section, so it's real.

    Bummed out, because I know I did better on the experimental than I did on the real one :')

    There are multiple real LR sections floating around. But mine (I had only 1 LR) was 25 questions and had questions about genetics (unpigmented hair gene passed down between male relatives) and an old culture that used dice which opposite sides added up to 7. If you had those questions, that LR was real. Unfortunately don't remember much else from my LR.

    that is weird. I had just one RC section but I had totally different passages (water supply, birds, and do not remember other two)

    I took the test on Saturday. My order was LR-LG-RC-LR.

    I remember for LG a game about government info being leaked. RC had passages about Mexican art and birds. In the second LR section, I had some questions about a guitar on the wall, Egyptian dice, and genes.

    Overall, I think I did fine on LG. For RC and LR I found it be a little difficult but not too bad.

    FYI, I had only one RC, and the 4th passage was a comparative passage talking about 9-hour working limit.

    I had two LR sections, one had 25 questions and the other 26. But I can’t remember any of those questions.

    I have the same structure as yours. Hopefully the one with 26 questions is the experimental one...
