When I first registered for the LSAT, the LSAC site said that scores would be e-mailed June 29th.  Then when I checked back maybe 2 weeks later it said July 3.  Is it normal for them to change their minds about when scores will be ready?  Does this have to do with the number of people signed up to take the June test?

I just checked the LSAC website.  My score release date is still listed as June 29th.  Have others checked what their release date is?

Actually, all three of the disclosed tests from 2005 had really difficult scales.  It's misleading at first glance because June 2005 only had 99 questions, and October only had 100 questions.

So I do think it's a trend.  Dec '04 had a nice scale, but that test was really difficult.

If the only class I've taken at a particular community college is an activity/sports unit, do I still need to send in the transcript?  I might send it in anyway to be safe, but it seems like such a waste of time.

Thanks, Red.  This is some really great advice!

Just another two weeks...

ya, when we take our prep tests we do it timed and grade at the end. we take 0 breaks when we do it. we just plow right through. as for the quietness... my mom has two 6 year old twins so its never too quiet =p And we always do the games in the book heh. Thx for your feedback =)

Are you reviewing over the tests once you're done?  Go through every problem that you missed, write out an explanation for the correct answer and then write out the reason why you got it wrong.  Also, keep track of your pitfalls--if there are trends you're noticing that keep you from getting questions right.  Are you reading too quickly?  Not mapping out formal logic questions?  Misunderstanding questions?  Drawing poor diagrams?

Put all of this into a single document, and review over it to reinforce correct thinking.  With practice, you'll see a lot of improvement.  Good luck!

Sounds like LSAC likes to recycle material.  In several of the older tests, the topic of Native American tribal rights showed up multiples times as reading comp passages too.

This is a formal logic question.  It can be mapped out:

PCM = planning commission members
SFI = significant financial interests
LS = live in suburbs
WS = work in suburbs

LS <--> PCM <--S--> SFI

WS <-- S --> PCM  <--S--> SFI

As detailed in LRB, when there are two cases of "some", then you cannot connect them via an inference.  Thus, (C) is wrong.  However, when there is only one case of some, you can make an inference to another part of the logical relationship, thus, LS <--S--> SFI.

If you haven't looked at the LRB, the reason why (C) is wrong is that when you have two subgroups of people, this does not necessarily overlap.  For instance, you could have a group of PCM, and some work in the suburbs, and some have significant financial interests, but they are not necessarily the same group of people.

I just finished taking this test, and thought that the RC and LR were a LOT harder than the PrepTests I've taken before it.  For those of you who've taken the test, could you explain the answer to Question 15 on Section 2 (LR)?  I can't understand why the answer is (D).

RC -1
LR -2
LG -1
LR -1

Raw score: 95
Scaled score: 176

It'll take me about an hour to get to my test site, so I'm going to give myself two hours in case of traffic, etc.

9:00 - Wake up, breakfast (oatmeal, eggs, juice), allergy pill =)
9:30 - Take a "mini-test"
10:30 - Leave for test center
11:30 - Hopefully get there early, eat lunch and review more LG and LR

I plan on bringing a sandwich and some protein bars for lunch and break...anything else tends to induce food coma in me.  Also some water, but I don't plan on drinking much of it.

Congrats, that's an amazing achievement!  Did you miss anything on the test?  Did you do it all in one sitting?
