Oh, thanks. Wasn't familiar with that rule. Good news for me, I suppose....We'll see.

How would you be able to figure it out? On mine, the two RC sections were comparable (although I believe that the 2nd was harder than the 5th). They both contained the same number of questions, both had the comparative reading and neither had any really odd questions.

On a given test, there are 5 sections. Each of these sections is marked "LG", "RC", or "LR". One of the sections is experimental. The rules governing the placement of these sections is as follows:
1. There must be at least 2 LR sections, neither of which are the experimental section.
2. There must be at least one non-experimental LG and RC section.
3. There must be at least one section of each type.

Maybe that's what the issue is...maybe a particular form had a statistically higher score than another, due to the variable placement of the experimental section? It would seem to me that people that had the experimental later would be at an advantage...

Well, the problem with UVA is that if I go there without scholarships, it's 40k a year, and considering that I'll most likely start out doing general practice, it would take a great deal more to pay that off. I'm hoping to get at least 50% from either W&L or Wake, but I wouldn't expect anything from UVA. Not that I'm not applying there, of course...

Hi, all...first time poster, so if there's a problem with this post, my apologies. At any rate, my current top two law schools are Washington and Lee and Wake Forest. I'm having a great deal of trouble deciding which of the two I should look at more closely - based on the numbers I've seen, they are quite comparable. To give everyone an idea of what I'm looking at, I am planning on getting involved in a smaller firm (Less than 15 attorneys), and doing general practice in a small town. I come from a VERY small town originally, but I think that I would be comfortable either in Winston-Salem or Lexington. I am planning on practicing in one of four states: WV, VA, NC or TN. Also, I would like the school to be well enough off that the name would probably help if I were to, after practicing for a while, decide to go for a judgeship or teaching position (if all were to go well). Another factor is going to be scholarships...I'm going to need a pretty significant one to be able to afford law school. My GPA is 3.85 and my LSAT should be back today, but based on my practice tests, I can guess that it will be between 165 and 170, leaning more towards the 170 side. Any thoughts? Any other law schools that I should look at?
