Agreed. although being LGBT I am not overly excited for President Pence.

It'll surely be a shock to the system. I'll see you at camp.


I wonder what the bathroom situation will be like there.

I reckon once our brains are fried we'll just go in the coop.


I was making a very oblique reference to the bathroom bills. I suppose they will do genital inspections, no?

Yeah, I know, I just couldn't think of a clever reply that wasn't also incredibly depressing. :(

The way things are shaping up, I bet Trump, Pence, and Ryan all get the boot. Welcome to the White House, President Hatch. (the dude's 83.. I have a huge issue with politicians being this old, because there is no way they can keep up with current topics like FUCKING NET NEUTRALITY BECAUSE THEY DONT EVEN KNOW WHAT INTERNET IS OR HOW IT WORKS)

sorry, rant over.

Just tried taking the June 2007 PT and the first LG section threw me so hard - specifically the "if" questions - that the timer ran out with 7 not even answered. I have become so mortified that I have decided to scratch the entire diagnostic. I feel like death. :mrgreen:

I wouldn't worry too much about the LG section, to be honest. No one really knows how to tackle the games before they start studying. It's the easiest to learn though!

I should be studying or like reviewing content for this test tomorrow.. But I have no more fucks to give. Watching my cavs stomp boston and going to sleep relaxed. No reason to stress about this nonsense when I can't even bring my own writing utensils. How can they expect us to perform when they give us sTTTore brand pencils?

They provide scrap paper and writing utensils. The stub says that "any writing utensil not provided by lsac is prohibited".

Also @dj, the tablet has a stylus.. so you can write on the screen for LG, which shouldn't be too awful compared to paper. But I'd still lean towards the pencil and paper more than likely just out of hesitation of their software going broked

What'zzz the point of this test you guys are taking tomorrow? I mean, other than more practice, obviously. Didn't someone mention it is "digital?" Or did I just imagine reading that somewhere.

It's just practice. Also new questions for those of us that have done copious amounts of tests. Prep Test A -2 with time to spare but the two were transcription errors :| lol. Granted, I'm in bed lying down so whatever haha.

All this is the motivation I needed to study like hell, so I don't get stuck with the digital version of the test. I look forward to reading everyone's reports from the digital test tomorrow.

I think it's to get a feel for what it would be like to be in the digital format, in case the LSAT goes digital sooner rather than later. They are not offering it in my area, otherwise I would be taking this pilot test too!

I see. So you still have to take it at a testing site?

Yeah, I think so. There are different locations for the pilot test, and I'm sure it is at a specific testing site.

We also get a $100 gift card for doing the test. Beers on LSAC afterwards.

If we get to use the stylus to mark up the test I don't think it will be too bad. My biggest concern about going digital is not being able to cross out wrong answer choices. I rely on that quite a bit, especially on LR. If that's still available then I should be fine, although sometimes I zone out when I'm reading on a computer instead of paper.

I read that the tablet will display the time remaining up in the corner of the screen.. so maybe analog watches are a thing of the past. I'm taking mine either way to get used to it though (haven't put this bad boy through battle tested scenarios yet)

Good luck on the computer test.
Will you get scores instantly like it's the GRE or maybe not because it's a pilot program? That is a big advantage of the GRE in knowing your score as soon as you finish.
I'm sure you all will crush it.
