I just realized that I also interpreted the rule that X fixes radios to mean that X ONLY fixes radios. So any question that involves the possibility of X fixing TV's and/or VCR's is a ding for me.

I'm still wondering what sort of train wreck was happening in my brain that made me screw up the rules in this game so badly. Sheesh.

I'm an atheist, but still praying for a miracle on this one...

I saw that rule listed on another post-mortem thread. Unless they're wrong, that was the rule. I think it probably was, because there were two questions which made no sense to me, and if that rule was what it said, they probably would have.

ok bear with me here...if the game was set up using the X and 2 OTHERS mistake, it would have looked something like this:

X   U   W   S   Y   Z
    _  T/V      TV  RTV
R   -  or       
       both

this setup says that U, W OR S could take the final (3rd) Radio...I remember distinctly, however, coming up with a setup that took care of the R's completely...does that ring a bell?

mjsbth and bubble-filler,

this is really depressing.  i wouldn't have minded missing the questions if the game were conceptually "above me," so to speak...

i wasted a lot of time (stupid, i know!) trying to figure out why certain answer choices weren't working, so i ended up not even making it to the last game. 

man, why couldn't this have been the experimental secion! the experimental games section was so much easier...

i felt so good about my performance on the rest of the exam.  unfortunately, now i have an automatic -8 (b/c of scrwing up this rule and not getting to the last five questions).  it hurts when you know you could have done better!  i don't really know what compelled me not to cancel...

splenda,
yeah, it is frustrating. i also wasted time trying to figure out what was wrong with my setup, which led me to guessing on a few in the final game. don't get too bummed yet. it's possible that you got less than three wrong on that game, and did you bubble in guesses for the final game? if so, some of your guesses may have been right.

anyway, these things always seem to happen on the real thing, eh? try not to worry about it too much, i think we'll be alright. :)

Ooooph, that hurts Splenda. Hopefully you did much better than usual on the other three sections!! And I hope you were able to bubble in some of the blanks. Best of luck.

If I had tested how I test 9 out of 10 times, I would've not gotten more than 2 wrong on LG and probably 8 wrong total. That's gonna be the difference for me between Columbia and Georgetown for me, unless some other abnormal catastrophic breakdown occurred that I'm not yet aware of. I'm sooooooo pissed, but hey, dems bes the breaks. I'm sure we'll all be fine in the scheme of things. Till we know, Cheers. I hope you guys all post when you get your scores; I'll be routing for you guys. There's a lot of elitist arrogant snobs on this board, but a lot of good people like yourselves as well. I'm pulling for ya.

mjsbth and bubble-filler,

unfortunately, the proctor called time before i was able to even bubble in blind guesses for the last 5.  i guess i'll just mentally start preparing myself for a retake, that way i won't be in shock if my score doesn't turn out decently.  all in all, though, thanks so much for the kind words.  regardless of what happens, it feels good to know that others understand.  best of luck to you guys on your scores and/or applications!

I seriously can't remember how I set up any of these games, or if I misinterpreted one rule or another, or what answers I selected, or even what the questions were.  Even when someone types up a question that was on the LSAT, and provides what the 5 choices were, I **STILL** can't recall what I selected.  It's not that I blacked it out, or have no memory of the exam, it's just that, well, I mean, how the h*ll can everyone remember this stuff so much?  I wasn't trying to memorize the exam, I was concentrating on taking it.

But more power to you if you can.
