Cue being sick to my stomach for the next month :mrgreen: Anyone else with two RC's think the section with arbitration was so easy? I'm so mad that's not the real one.

The LG with the last game having the 8 floors was real.

PS: Team Li should send that tip to the big hitters

Wish that was The experimental :(

Regardless of games feeling easier I have no doubt to was my worse section this time around as some choch caused a distraction by exclaiming 8 minutes into the section for a time update across the room to the proctor. Admittedly, it distracted me more than it should have haha so probably going to sit a cycle and retake. Obnoxious punk...

Same, I see a lot of people saying it felt easy but then saying they made a lot of mistakes. So I feel like it was more difficult than we want to give it credit for (but still probably -10/11)

Man, I felt pretty good about the test while I was taking it and after but Reddit confirmed I got one wrong on LR already l o l (The Chester misinterpret question). I felt RC was pretty decent. 25 LR was not bad but 26 LR was much harder to me. Really worried about LG. I didn’t feel bad about the first three games when I did it but that last LG... whelp. Can’t tell how I did unless I know whether this assumption I may or may not have made would have changed all the answers. I remember lit. all the conditions and I diagrammed it so easily post-test but dun goofed.

I go from thinking I killed it to feeling like I should kms every ten minutes.

Also my test center was like... awful. Tiny desks so they had us push desks together to have more space. A Vietnam war vet saying pretty awful things about his wife who was also proctoring. Their son helped administer and his squeaky shoes were shuffling around all the time. The PA system going off in the fourth section.

Texted my study buddy panicking and he called me back and we had a nice debrief. It seemed like LG was good if you didn't focus on the upfront - much easier to just brute force for a lot of the questions

LR wasn't difficult if you focused on why wrong answers are wrong - we're both convinced some of the "right" answers were just not wrong.

RC was weird because there were obvious right answers for some of the questions.

We both think there will be a -11/-12 curve. Those LG were rough for him (he's kinda my gauge for LG difficulty) and some LR questions were just weird as fuck.

What the fuck even was that question

I read that Q like twice and ended up choosing a random answer because I had no idea what I was doing

There's a pretty controversial erotic movie about Caligula who was apparently into incest and was also a blood-thirsty sadist. I was traumatized by it and all the feelings came back as I read the question. 8)

Agree with this. Switched my LR strategy leading up to December to read the question stems first with a rigorous elimination process. This made the LR seem fairly easy. Definitely remember some weird questions (Caligula, fish, etc.) but was mostly able to uncover LSAC's tricks.

Definitely remember a Least Strengthens question where all five conceivably could have strengthened but one took a lot of mental gymnastics.

Yes exactly! That question I actually had to change my answer.

We started studying together to switch to an elimination focused strategy. It tripped us both up in September having so many questions where the right answer does not seem right at all.

I felt so confident on so many of the LR questions you all are rehashing - but who knows. Definitely not my strongest performance, even though I got to look at all the LG questions (which doesn’t always happen). LR and RC are my strengths, but I have no clue how I did on either. I’ve done great on PTs but who knows what that tells.

I got an exp LG section and it was SO EASY. I crushed it - I mean, probably -0 (a miracle - I once squeaked by on a PT with +9). So the “exp” factor absolutely breaks my heart.

I’m guessing I’ll end up between 150 and 171.
