Distribution of Answers

Did anyone feel the slightest bit of anxiety regarding the pattern of their selected answer choices,ie, 3 of the same letter in a row in some sections?

3 in a row is nothing special, happened many times before. Don't worry about it.
Perhaps I know why it is man alone who laughs: He alone suffers so deeply that he had to invent laughter.

I sincerely hope that LSAC uses random number generators to determine which letter to assign the correct answer.

Are these answers randomly generated by a computer using some algorithm, or is there some creep lurking in the basement that devises these patterns to rack our brains evem more and doubt our own answer choices?

My favorite pattern is when the answers go:  DEAD BAD DEAD

I agree Dude, I felt like the answer choice distro on this test was crazy or maybe it was a little test day overanalyzing...

You're ~hot, therefore you're ~fly

It just seemed odd to not select a certain letter or two for a inordinate number of questions. The Family Guy comment was well placed Dirk Diggler.

I got the same thing on some of the sections.  I had a couple letters in a row...kinda got worried about it, but figured it could have just been the random placement of the correct answers...
In like Flint (Accepted):  South Texas, St. Mary's
Out on a limb (Pending):  Arizona State, Southwestern, Oregon
Better luck next time (Denial):

I had a lot of the same letter on the first RC passage.  Lets abide by LSAC rules and not comment on what that answer is.  But I remember thinking at the time that this was probably one of those crazy mental games the LSAT likes to play.
