thought it was pretty tough, esp. my RC section; might as well been reading Greek!
Time crunch was the worst part for me.
It depends. I don't know about American schools, but almost all Canadian Law Schools look primarily at you highest LSAT mark. Thus, there is no real gain from canceling.
This is my first post. Yay!
To the poster above who was inquiring about re-takes: I think the first scenario looks better. It just doesn't seem to me like a 4th test is warranted. I'd suggest taking the last one in Sept and getting apps in early. Or maybe just wait until next June. Waiting sucks, but trust me- it's worth it.
As for me, I for some reason didn't find the games particularly difficult. ...which is odd, because it started out being my weakest section. And I mean WEAK. I was getting like 13 right. Then as I improved in games over time, RC became my worst section. I wonder if anyone else experienced that.
I feel like I only missed two or three max in games and probably the same in each of the LRs, but RC is such a wild card for me now- especially with that old hag Cather and her sorry excuse for novel-writing: "Uhh... I don't suck at novels. It's just that... well, see I prefer to actually not call it a novel. It's a 'NARRATIVE'." ...RIIIGHT. How convenient. Let's just make up a whole new genre to account for your suckiness at novel-writing. Pfff.
Anyway, I'm really, really hoping for some pie-in-the-sky score, like a 167 or 170. I feel like I have a very good shot at 163-165. But then again, you never know. But I *think* I did well, considering I was the only person smiling after the exam, and everyone else looked like they'd just been cavity-searched.
The Experimental was definitely in my first and it was definitely an RC. I thought the graded one (second one) was much easier. The fractal problem was a piece of cake in my book. The first RC, on the other hand, was seriously thick. I didn't finish 5 of the problems on that one. Good thing the second one was graded!
P.S. I think the experimental section in general is a bunch of crap.
so i think the experimental being in the first 3 sections is wrong this year.
my friend had 2 games. i had 1. the game we both had was not the one he had in the first 3 sections.
Did it really @#!* you that much?
Anyway, I think there's a procedure to contest this...
In what time zone are you? I have a friend that I want to congratulate when she's done, but I am not sure if she should be done yet or not... Thanks!
Feel good about most sections, got through them all, execept games, had to guess the big d on 9 of them. Games 1st section, what a bummer, just hoping to get about 15/23 on that section and I could be good, hoping for the best, was looking to get 157+
Wow that stinks!
Thanks for the notice.
