    Fuck. I doubt this is the case, but it's plausible. I don't know how much credence to put in this, but going back through my accommodation letters that "all sections" phrase was never used before... This could be devastating. Everyone needs to bombard the hell out of them with calls/emails first thing tomorrow morning.

    I guess this COULD be true. But it's highly highly unlikely. I also got no such email stating accommodated testers are taking an experimental section now.
    That's the huge implication that makes me believe this isn't the case. After just getting their asses handed to them by the ADA, I doubt the LSAC is in the mood for another war... and rest assured if it's true, they're gonna get one. We've been preparing and building our stamina for an LSAT without an experimental, this would be patently unfair to blindside us with this. Preach on, Bruis.

    I've never posted on here but I will be really screwed if this is the case. I already feel it's not too fair to not administer an additional break considering how long we're testing for. I have such difficulty sustaining attention for essentially 5 straight hours. I cannot imagine adding another hour onto that.

    @Mr.lopez HOW DID YOU FIND OUT! IF YOU RECEIVED AN EMAIL JUST SHOW US! IT IS GETTING RATHER ANNOYING AND FRUSTRATING BECAUSE ALL YOU ARE SAYING IS EMAIL LSAC. IF YOU HAVE PROOF JUST SHOW US! IT REALLY ISN'T THAT HARD!! YOU ARE CREATING UNNECESSARY ANXIETY AND CAUSING MANY TO BECOME STRESSED. SO FOR THE MILLIONTH TIME, MAY YOU SHOW US!

    im telling you. just email accom@lsac.org and ask them if it is true that as of the september lsat that accomodated students will not be writing the experimental section

    I smell a troll... because that is true.

    I sympathize with @Matthew524 frustration. This is major news and if it is indeed true, the way you guys have been studying will have to be altered essentially because now you have to accustom yourselves to a 5 section LSAT which is a huge change. I wish Mr. Lopez would just #ShowUsTheProof

    In the meantime has anyone emailed or called LSAC about this? It's Monday so they're available.

    They can't give a response over the phone. We've got to wait for email.

    @montaha.rizeq Thank you! I tried calling this morning and they said you have to email them to make sure, but the lady said she seriously doubts that we have to take the experimental. She told me to email accommodations to get an accurate response. Its just frustrating that he says all this and just repeats the same thing. People like myself, don't have accommodations for no reason, we actually have disabilities that hinder us from performing to the best of our abilities given our situation. I think @Mr.lopez doesn't understand that he is making it rather difficult for us and making things ten times worse.

    Seems others on here who are familiar with LSAT accommodations agree with this...I want to say don't worry about it and just move on because stressing over a theory isn't practical, especially if you're sitting for the near future LSAT(s).

    Okay, dude, this has really gone on for far too long. Either take a screenshot of the email that's stating this and causing people with accommodations so much stress like so many have asked you SEVERAL times, or kindly stop stirring everyone up unless you want a vacation from the forums.

    I'm 100% certain LSAC would email EVERYONE with accommodations to let them know about this change is coming into effect and not send a lone wanderer onto 7Sage to scare the crap out of everyone, or at the very least post about it on their website. There has been no changes to the accommodations section on their website, so I'm certain Mr. Lopez here is just trying to make you guys sweat a bit.

    everyone I would not do this to lie or harm this community. Never-mind that I posted it then. I was trying to help by posting this @"Dillon A. Wright" The only reason I have not posted the email, is that those kind of things I dont know the degree of confidentiality. That fact that anyone would think I would just be randomly making this up would be ridiculous. I was trying to HELP to inform everyone.

    the email i received had the following in it. and I am copying and pasting this

    "When LSAC was annotating the scores earned with additional test time, the unscored section was not always included in each test administered. Beginning with the September 2016 test administration, all tests have five multiple-choice sections."

    and NO i would not go out of my way to create a thread RANDOMLY. I WAS TRYING TO HELP. and that is why i asked everyone to email accom at lsac. because who knows maybe someone from lsac emailed me the wrong information? but i highly doubt it.

    so can everyone PLEASE even for my sake email LSAC. and Ask because if we get a different response from ACCOM then I will go back to them and ask them how on earth they gave me this information! I was asking you guys to email, not to be stingy, but to build on my findings.

    Thanks for providing some form of proof. LSAC's emails are not confidential unless you're writing personally to them, or unless it states that it's confidential. As you can imagine, when someone asks for confirmation on your findings and all you get in reply is "email accom", it'll panic people and discredit your original post. If this comes into effect in September I'm sure we'll all appreciate your heads up, but until them I'm going to close this thread. If anyone has emailed accommodations and gets a reply, please make a new thread and mention myself and @Mr.lopez in it so we can all get this clarified. Thanks, guys.
