The September LSAT is over! Let’s take a moment to celebrate on behalf of everyone who conquered the LSAT beast.
Now that the dust has settled, it’s time to take a closer look at the test. Those of us who didn’t tangle with the LSAT yesterday have been scouring the interwebs for the hot gossip on the test. While test-takers are forbidden by LSAC from discussing specifics, generalities are A-OK, so we can get a sense of the general consensus.
Just as in June, most of the buzz about this test seems to be focusing on the Logic Games section. Based on what we’ve heard, the games weren’t extraordinarily difficult, but they were more time-consuming than usual. There wasn’t necessarily a super-quick and relatively easy game, as there often is, which led in some cases to difficulty with finishing the section.
The Reading Comprehension and Logical Reasoning sections appear to have been fairly standard. Not surprisingly, the LR sections were sprinkled with some pretty tricky questions, but that’s to be expected.
Overall, people are reporting that this test was not especially difficult. Top Law Schools is predicting a curve of -10 or -11, which would mean that the test was somewhat “easy” relative to other tests (though of course that should be taken with a hefty grain of salt, since the curve is anyone’s guess).
We at Blueprint LSAT Prep are hoping that all of our readers had a smooth and enjoyable test-taking experience (okay, as enjoyable as it can be). However, if you’re considering canceling and/or retaking in December, stay tuned to the blog this week – we’ll be posting some articles to assist with that decision.
Scores are scheduled to be released on October 22nd, although LSAC often releases scores a couple days early. Until then, enjoy some well-deserved R&R, and congratulations on surviving the LSAT!
