RC is an area I definitely have to work on, as I went -7 on test day (I think this is mostly a timing issue as well). I also went -5 on the first LR section and have NO IDEA how that happened, as I don't remember feeling like it was difficult at all. Why do you all think LR was so tricky this test? I haven't sat down and analyzed the question type breakdown but it seems like there must have been more of a certain type of question or a certain trick in the ACs that was throwing people off.

I went -5 on LR1, too. I was shocked because I remember thinking that was a pretty easy LR section. Normally I don't even go that many COMBINED. :(

Are we allowed to talk about answers now that the test is released?

Not sure. Wouldn't risk it unless you message an admin and get an answer.


I also am completely vindicated I got Apes and Isotopes correct. Doesn't help my LR performance overall but I'm just so happy I got the ones that drove most of us mad correct. They're also literally the only two I remember at all.

I got isotopes right but missed the treadmill one also... I am so mad at myself for missing some of the questions I missed. :oops:

I didn't get that one but I did get one from Seton hall, told I could start at Umass or Cleveland-Marshall College this fall with scholarships, eligible for full residential scholarship for Washburn, and Dean's Merit Scholarship eligible for Pepperdine...

Why couldn't it be from a school I'm actually applying to? :-(

I didn't get an email about a fee waiver from WUSTL but I got an email from them saying the admissions committee wants to know more about me and inviting me to an interview. Does that mean if I do this interview they might give me a fee waiver or...? Confused :?

I have no clue, really. My only guess is that walliums and I were grouped together cause we're both "older"....(I.e. 25+)

I got this too, was definitely weird. Also got GMU, Miami and W&L waivers in addition to a few TTTs.

Ps. I'm a 21 year old K-JD so it wasn't age! Maybe they sent it to everyone over a certain GPA/LSAT threshold?

Probably. I'm not in that range being a splitter and not in the 170 club.

Do it and ask for clarification on what to expect/it's about so that you're able to properly prepare. It would make sense for you to ask that since you didn't apply to them yet so this request is kinda an out there need to know WTF I'm coming in for.

Also got the fee waiver, I did pretty poor on the lsat so I'm kinda surprised.
