Title: June 2008 Curve Prediction
Post by: sevinkimpson on June 21, 2008, 05:36:21 PM
I'm not sure if there is a thread exclusively for this, although I know it has been mentioned here and there. What are your predictions, based on past scales and your feel of the test's difficulty. I feel like a -9 = 170 is possible, and -5 for a 175.

That's kind of where I'm thinking it's at. I know this probably an obvious question but do we see the scale? Or just our score and percentile rank?
Title: Re: June 2008 Curve Prediction

If the test is disclosed, the scale is disclosed, and contained in your report.

Post by: sevinkimpson on June 21, 2008, 05:50:12 PM
The optimist in me is insisting that the games were a bit unusual and the RC threw enough people a curve to push the scale into average territory, but the realist tends to agree with you.

I going with -8 for 170.

Seems to be general consensus. Maybe a little too grim? I hope so, but that test just felt so darn easy. Here's a good strategy for future tests... all LSDers pool our money together to get friends and family to bomb the test, making a better scale! We could choose a one test each year as LSD LSAT Day and get a bunch of dummies to take the test cold.

Seriously though, the anticipation is killing me. I know I rocked the test, but even so if the scale is fuxed because it was easy than so am I  :-\. Also, besides the scale I wake up in cold sweats thinking a misbubbled an entire section. This has never happened to me once or practice... but it is still possible, right?!

Maybe I should just lay off of LSD until July  :P

That's what I originally thought as well.
But looking back, the games were too easy -- I never finished so quickly before.
And I don't remember any particular LR question that gave me a hard time.
Even though I was surprised that I had to guess on two questions for RC, in hindsight it was my fault for spending too much time ruminating contenders on the comparative reading part.
So a harsh scale wouldn't surprise me.
But -10 wouldn't surprise me either, so who knows?

But those of you who are guessing -8 (and even the one person who says -7)remember that there were 101 questions so a -8 would mean 93/101 would give you a 170 and I think the highest ever was 92 (june '07). Am I right?

I think the test was a little on the easy side but doubt we're gonna see anything too strict. Keep these numbers in mind:

91, 89, 90, 89, 90, 87, 90, 90, 93, 90, 90, 89, 92, 89

That's the score required for a 170 from every released LSAT score from June 2003 to the present. If someone more ambitious than me wants to label which ones were 100 question tests and which ones were 101, that'd be cool.

I don't think we'll see another 93 or 92. Notice how common the 90's and 89's are. I'm gonna be perverse and say 91 because it hasn't happened since June 2003. It's due. :)

Yeah, you're right.... I meant 92Raw=170, so -9... I think that's a little pessimistic, somewhere between -9 to -11. I'm sticking with -9, though... test was really easy. That sucks, because my practice scores are better with harder scales (except a couple freak out bombs, like mapping logic games)

This was my third (and last!) time taking the test. I took it in September and in February and this was by far the easiest one.  Games were cake, LR were no trouble, and I thought RC was average difficulty as well. It was all-in-all a no-nonsense test. I wouldn't be surprised if the scale was -7 or -8 for 170. 

The above argument can MOST be weakened if the following was true:

The author's previous two testing experiences have helped sharpen his LSAT skill, making subsequent tests feel easier despite their relative difficulty.

Title: Re: June 2008 Curve Prediction
Post by: Blakkout on June 22, 2008, 11:46:48 AM
Looks like I'm in the moniority, but I don't think it was easy enough to warrent a -8 curve.  I'm going to go with -10, straight up.  I guess we'll just have to wait and see though...
Title: Re: June 2008 Curve Prediction
Post by: sevinkimpson on June 22, 2008, 09:12:42 PM
And for 175?

-4?  -5?

4? Really? That would mean that a 180 was minus zero only, something that I don't think has ever happened. Or else, minus one for 180, and some score between 175 and 180 is unattainable. 5, I can see, even 6... not 4.
Title: Re: June 2008 Curve Prediction
Post by: caic517 on June 22, 2008, 10:53:53 PM
From my gut feeling, I believe the RC will have a strong influence on how the curve will be.  Going through most (if not all) posts relevant to the June LSAT, the impression I'm getting is that most people found the LG to be relatively smooth.  On the other hand, quite a few people expressed missing bubbles on the RC by the end of the 35 minutes.  On top of that, the RC (at least IMO) was a bit harder than usual in terms of specifics and overall passage difficulty.  The last passage was especially challenging and lengthy.  Finally, comparing RC to LG, there are a lot less specific tricks and patterns.

But again, that is merely my personal conjecture.  At this point I can only hope (and browse all law related forums and boards) and pray for a good score.

Not in my opinion.  I for one, will soon start posting really bad advice and advocating against the school where I want to go.  (Which schools those will be depends on the news I get on 7.7)   ;D

I thought this test was the easiest in a long time, excluding games, which were much harder than on the last 5-6 tests.

i think it's funny when people brag about how easy they thought the test was and then spend their free time speculating on a message board about whether the curve will be a -9 or -10.  right, i'm sure you totally aced this puppy.  if it was so damn easy, maybe you should study for the mcat so your superior brain doesn't go numb waiting for what can only be a phenomenal result on july 7.

and by the way, for all you -7 and -8ers soothsayers out there, keep in mind that if you're on this site, you're already part of an incredibly self-selecting group of people.  you may have thought the june test was easy, but if you look at other message boards (like www.top-law-schools.com (http://www.top-law-schools.com)), you'll see that lots of people who were scoring in the high 170s on their practice tests found the logic games and reading comp to be particularly difficult.  also, regardless of your personal opinion (i, for example, thought the logic games were the easiest ones i'd ever seen on an lsat), the scale has already been created and is out of our control.  our aggregate performance will only change things by a point, tops.  but that point could also come from a question being thrown out (or not), so it's kind of silly to try to figure out how "easy" the test was.

Well, I'd ask easy compared to what?  I think the June 07 games (and a lot of the games on preptests leading up to #53) were easier than the one on this test, but I wouldn't say that this test's games were hard either.  It does sound like a lot of people had problems with the cake layering game for some reason...either way, if we're looking at things comparatively, the games were certainly not easier than June 07 (-8 curve) and the RC was comparable in my opinion, so I think we're looking at -9, -10 if lucky.

Anyway, why the hate? Who cares. It's her opinion, just like you all have your opinion. My opinion is also that the games were easy. For me, the last one took a bit more time than usual but the games as a whole, I considered quite easy compared to past exams. For me, the RC was one of the more difficult passages I'd encountered. But obviously we all have different strengths and weaknesses and me finding the games relatively easy, doesn't mean they were. Likewise, me finding the RC difficult, doesn't mean it was. So who cares?! It's just us expressing our own opinions.

BT,
I thought the games were easy because the rules were very straightforward, the questions were typical, and if I remember correctly, the pure sequencing type game had only two base outcomes (I think this is the game that some folks found difficult).

So, wtf, stotan?  Whether or not she's physically attractive to you doesn't reflect on the validity of her argument (which, actually, wasn't poorly formed.)  I think you guys are either being tribalist, i.e., you think newbies shouldn't have strong opinions, or you're devolving into misogyny to try and shut her up.  Neither is very pretty and knowing you guys for as long as I have, doesn't really represent you well.

Personally, I think she looks creative and funny, though I would eventually lose the picture, if only because adcomms tend to be more conservative and flipping off anything, even as well-deserved as the LSAT, might put them off.  (oo, there's a run on sentence for ya.)

i am worried about the lsat--it's obvious that we all are, since we're here on this thread.  but i think a lot of people try to shake up other test-takers who are anxiously awaiting their score by saying things like "i think the test was easy" or "the test was so easy that there's going to be a -7 curve, max."  and that seems inherently contradictory because if they really thought the test was that easy, they wouldn't waste their time figuring out the curve for a 170 since they clearly think they scored way above that.  i wasn't mocking everybody on this forum--i think that was obvious, if you read my post again--just the people who think there's a big difference between a -9 and a -10.

all that being said, i genuinely hope you do as well as you hoped on the lsat.  i mean that.  as i said, it's irrelevant to me how everyone else did since the curve has already been formed, so as far as i'm concerned, i hope you all get the 180 of your dreams.  :)

I think everyone was affected, at least that was my intent. A few weak women walked out crying early on. Also I barked in peoples faces if I thought they looked a little too confident. Unfortunatly there were only like 40 people in my room so I don't think it will effect the curve :(

During break two guys were bragging how easy the test was so I ripped their answer sheets up after section five.

In all seriousness, someone at my test center wore a homemade shirt that said "LSAT Ninja" on it while sporting a spandex ninja headband for the entire test.  He did, however, refrain from any karate-kicks in between sections. 

That outfit sounds AMAZING.  I want an LSAT Ninja t-shirt, now.

I think LSAC should send everyone who scores a 180 an "LSAT Ninja" bumper sticker.  Robin Singh could paper his office walls with them.

Right.
Making fun of me for what exactly?
I said I have no idea what the curve will be like.
You were obviously upset that some folks found the exam easy.

I'll stop there, because unlike you, I don't have to resort to "making fun" of people to make myself feel better.

BT,
I thought the games were easy because the rules were very straightforward, the questions were typical, and if I remember correctly, the pure sequencing type game had only two base outcomes (I think this is the game that some folks found difficult).

The two rules that placed two variables before and after one of the other variables set off a chain of two deductions.
Those are BASE outcomes, not complete.

The word "base" is awfully ambiguous, but I'll grant your assertion.

How much money do you have? I'd gladly (and willingly) take that bet.

I shouldnít even respond, but here it goes.  Iíll make it my last.

What a PATHETIC attempt to make me feel bad.
Iíve said many times on these boards that I spend a great deal of time mulling over the ACís on RC, which explains my very high accuracy on the section.
Indeed, I expect all my answers aside from those two that I guessed on to be correct.
And I promise you that I did very well despite having to guess on those two questions that I skipped.

From your observable affect and behavior just on these boards, I know that you lie and did horribly on the exam.  And I think Iím right in guessing that this exam was a retake for you (considering how long youíve been lurking these forums).  Not to mention that you never offer any helpful advice, so I can only assume itís because you donít have any.

BTW, Ďbaseí wouldnít be such an ambiguous word if you even had the slightest idea of the correct way to approach the section.  Itís obvious you didnít master games as you claim.

And donít say any more, because Iíll never believe any of it.  Itís just that obvious to me that youíre a lying idiot.

ďI read, diagram and make all the deductions in 1 to 2 minutes.Ē
LOL, what a blatant lie!  Are you surprised that I would remember such a stupid comment?  Being facetious?  No, I think not.  Thatís just flaunting a lie.

Knowing that there are idiots like you who can glean any potentially helpful information, makes me want to puke.  Iíll do myself and everyone else a favor and stop posting on these boards.  So you need not respond.

BTW, I havenít scored below a 173 in the 3 weeks leading up to exam day.  So Iím not at all worried.  And Iíve even peaked at 179 on an exam that was supposedly hard.  If I scored very high on the real thing (175+), I even had planned to post all my notes and my compilation of all the MORís and flaws that Iíve encounter on all the PTís.  Because I wanted to be helpful to the community thatís helped me.  Unlike you, who just likes to start sh!t.

I'm sure that all of your answers aside from the two you guessed on are correct.

Wait, I remember a particular passage that was so dense I have a difficult time believing you are 100% certain about the other questions.

When I said that I make all of the deductions in 1-2 minutes, I meant that I make all of the  CRUCIAL deductions of the set-up. I obviously can't answer all of those questions after 1-2 minutes. I can see how it may have read that way, so anyway, my apologies.

 I think the most important part of a game is to have a sound diagram. If you have a sound diagram, you should be able to answer all of the LG Q's correctly.

I'm fairly confident about my test day experience. I did miss a LG question, but that is b/c I was working too slowly trying to be too conclusive in all of my answers. I'm fairly certain that the ONE I missed is the only one.

I'm glad you assume *&^% that you know nothing about. This was my first attempt at the exam. I'm glad you're feeling confident, but don't be surprised when you miss a couple more questions than you're expecting. You really don't seem that bright.

I know you said you wouldn't respond, but I'm sure your ego will probably get in the way. You seem like an arrogant, pretentious, ass, and I won't be surprised if you fall on your face come July 3rd.





LOLOL.

You wrote:

I thought the exam was OK.

I had LG, RC, LR, LR, and LG, which I thought was nice.

The comparative reading was a bit hard, and I actually had to guess on 2 of those questions since I ran out of time, which never happened to me before.  So that sucked.  But overall, it was OK.
I'm guessing a mild scale by new exam standards.


The Comp reading wasn't even the hardest passage. If you had to guess on TWO of those, I bet you really bombed the other passages!!!!!! LOLOL! How does it feel to be READING COMP PWNED?

Enjoy taking the test in October!

Honestly.  If ad boards got a hold of this crap they wouldn't care if you guys got 175+.  I can't believe that ppl would treat each other like this.  What we think of your score doesn't affect what it actually is.

Oh man, when I logged onto LSAC today my heart skipped a beat. I saw my alert for printing out the ticket had disappeared and I thought that might mean scores have been posted. Sadly they were not  :(

I had a weird dream last night too.  I dreamt that I received a 173, but the score corresponded to the 52nd percentile.  Not really sure what this means...are there any strict Freudians out there??

If this dream comes true I am dead.

I bet you it's not going to be this extreme, but 7 wrong answers will land you in 169-171 on this test.

It probably means that you have the type of personality in which you are never content with your achievements and you always downplay all your accomplishments because in your opinion, they are not spectacular relative to others.

But Freud would probably say something about your mom or dad having some sort of childhood influence on you. His theories have all pretty much been disproved along with B.F. Skinner's. But he nevertheless remains a popular figure of psychology.
