Slightly below my practice average, sure glad I didn't cancel, right in the middle of my estimate (did better on LR than I thought, worse on RC but I was expecting that).

I said the absolute lowest was 162 and got a 160, so I'm not a happy camper. Think I will retake, but of course it's not a good time to make decisions.

I feared I could get a 164-166, based on missing a bunch of logic games. But I thought I could get lucky and get a 168-169.

I got a 165.

Guessed 165 as my realistic and came out with a 166 (my average during 20 preptests). For the first time ever, I was perfect in games, but RC and LR put me back in my place.

I wasn't sure what I got. I felt really good about every section except for RC. It was my first section, and I was so nervous I had to read the #%@%# African-American minsters passage twice because I couldn't concentrate. I also wasn't sure about a few LRs. I thought I broke 170, but was bracing myself for anything 165+.

I ended up missing 5 on RC, 2 on LR, and 0 on games, for a 173. I'm pretty damn pleased - RC could have been a lot worse, and I had a couple of lucky guesses on LR (Thank you, All-Stars!).

Screw that african-american ministers passage. Thanks to those damn ministers, I now need a career change.

Est: THIS BOARD HAD ME CONVINCED I'D GET A 165 OR BELOW

Actual: 169

My practices were higher, but I screwed up arguments (which I knew I did when I took it) but did well everywhere else.
