How about East Asian males?  Female Asians way outnumber us in terms of law.

TABOO - an exclusive exposť of the hidden discrimination in the
LSAT.  A must read for all women, peoples of color and free market
economists.  Certain LSAT questions can cause you to lose points. 
Donít get caught.  Learn to recognize the potential situations

I got this from website.  I'm curious what discrimination he's talking about. 

IMO when I practiced with a fifth section it wasn't much difference than practicing with only four.  Also, as the poster above mention, you must check every answer first then choose what you think is correct.  taking an hour break is not going to affect your score much UNLESS you have terrible mental endurance.  If you felt mentally drained on the section before the break than probably that hour break would affect your score.  If not, I don't see it affecting your score much. 

Taking it out of order won't mess up your diagnostic.

1)  Yes the test has gotten harder.  I don't know if it is the curve or the questions or both but my practice scores show a clear break between pre 2005 tests and post 2005.  I'm a pretty consistent test taker too. 

2) I'm not sure about 1996 compared to 2006 but I had about 2-3 point drop 2003/4 versus 2006 tests. 

3) Move on to the next answer if you think it's correct.  If I'm a bit unsure I'll put a dash on the test book and come back if I have time after completing all questions.  Turns out my hunches were usually right.  Stick with your first guess unless you know it's absolutely wrong.

Shoot...I marked a dash next to the numbers on a few questions on my scantron.  I hope that won't be a problem.  Now this thread got me all worried :-\

I was consistently averaging 165 in 2003-2004 lsats. then in the 2005-2006 lsats it dropped consistently to 160-161.  But then for june 2007 and sept 2007 I got 163.  Im pretty consistent too so I think it did get harder.                 2005/6>2007>2004/3

Studying for the LSAT / Is the Lsat/gpa a good predictor of my chances...

if I was an engineering major in college and I have a masters in engineering?  I mean how much of a boost is it?  I'd like to get into BC but my lsat 163(retaking in dec) and my gpa 3.43 shows I don't have a very good chance.  BC lsat avg is 164 and 3.44 is their low range for gpa

Were you guys as disgusted as me about the Matt Hamil vs Michael Bisping fight?  I thought Matt should have won.  Sign the petition below if you feel the same.
