As far as the performing duty unless there is overwhelming evidence that harm will come, I think the reporter answer is right.  This has been debated on this or another thread.  The reporter holds of on reporting to the police the possibility of a terrible crime or atrocity because he does not have significant evidence.  I think his decision conformed exactly to the principle.  I think the teacher answer required further assumptions about the disastrous consequences part of the principle.


I distinctly remember the reporter answer saying that there was a "slim chance" someone would be harmed, but the principle stated there must be "overwhelming evidence."  I went with the teacher/internship, too.

Yes, it did say that there was a slim chance, and the reporter conformed to his duty because there was only a slim chance, I think it said he 'held off on reporting it to the police'

i remember the "females mate ONLY with the fastest male" as an incorrect answer to the inference question, but i dont think that was a choice for the detail/except question.  i'll add it to the list anyway as a debated answer choice.

I agree, it seems like all the answers to that were short.  I also recollect the females only mate with fastest... as an incorrect answer to an inference question, perhaps the one that the AC was something about the Prolonges being faster than they need to be to escape any current predator.

I think it should be among the 'debated answers' on the list

No, this is the history question

No, the principle said that the duty should be performed unless overwhelming evidence of terrible things.

The reporter performed the duty to stay confinential because the evidence of terrible things was limited.

Yes, I put that, but now I think it was wrong.

Also, I remember a question about plagiarism or copying a writing style on Mondayís test.  Could have been the experimental though.

Not that I have seen. I haven't seen a 92/101 either. I saw the most 87/101. But recently, 88-89 with both 100/101.

it was a preptest from like 1995 or something where it was 92/101.  i remember it was in the first "10 actual, offical LSATs" book.

Why did you bring that up, I got a my worst score in my last 20 on that one (preptest 15).  But it was the sixth test I had taken in a span of six days, so I think it is unrepresentitive of my usual scoring (I usually score higher on the 'harsh curves').  Since I didn't do well on it, I won't try to compare it to Monday's test.  Also, it was two months ago.

Thanks again Captain Bringdown

I was actually suprised, after looking at old tests, that anything from an 85-91 could be a 170. However, the average is more towards an 89, in recent years.
yeah, the scales have been harsh much more the last few years... probably because of all of us TM/blueprint/kaplin/etc spoiled white kids  8)

But has a 91/100 ever equaled 170?
