June LSAT Instant Recap

BPPgreg-lsat-blog-june-lsat-instant-recap
You did it. You took the June LSAT. You sat down in a strange room with a bunch of strange people and finished a very strange test.

And now it’s over. Take a couple seconds to celebrate that simple fact.

LSAT over celebration 1
LSAT over celebration 2
LSAT over celebration 3

Now that you’ve gotten that out of the way… How did it go? So far we’re hearing that Reading Comp and Logical Reasonings were pretty standard, but the last question of Logic Games (about magazine spreads) threw some test-takers for a loop.

Now we want to hear your thoughts.

In the comments below, let us know your feelings about today’s LSAT. How difficult did you find it? Which section(s) tripped you up? Did anything crazy happen at your testing center? Which GIF is your favorite?

An important note: LSAC prohibits us from publishing any big specifics from any LSAT (this includes individual questions/answers, rules for Logic Games, etc.). So if your comment is removed, it most likely violated some kind of rule or was close enough that we didn’t want to risk it. Here’s a pretty good guide for what’s acceptable.

    RC was pretty standard. I thought the comparative passage was the toughest – dealt with philosophical concepts and required a bit more processing than normal. Probably screwed up a couple on this one since I had to move on to the 4th.

    LG was standard, if not really really easy, until the last game, which wasn’t something I had really seen recently. Very few rules and rules that were hidden in the opening passage. Had to guess on one or two at the end.

    LR was also really standard. I had three 25 question sections. I think the first was experimental based on the question distribution, but that’s pretty meaningless. I noticed most of the trickier questions closer to the middle of the section – 12-15 ish. The last ones were easier than December and most of the practice tests I’ve done.

    I found the LR standard, if not a bit less difficult (less “the reasoning above is most similar to which flawed reasoning below?” questions I think) but had questions with different phrasing (parallel?) that I just couldn’t grasp.

    LG was so so hard. Much harder than most. There weren’t any list-games, all were complex and the last one was especially wtf-worthy.

    RC was fine until the legal passage (is this the right term?) that one really thew me for a loop, I spent way too much time on it.

  3. Second Time says:

    I thought the LR was slightly easier than usual but I had questions that were tricky. I personally felt i did well on the RC but overall it was pretty standard.
    The Logic Games were tough 1st one was slightly different than standard games 3rd and fourth a lot of people who took it with me found difficult. I had 2 LR with 25 questions and 1 with 26 Q’s based on Repeat tester’s comment that was probably my experimental.

    I blanked out for the first 5 minutes, but then got on track. I had 3 LR sections like the previous poster, two with 25 and one with 26, LG was interesting. First game was really different but easy. Second game threw me off. RC my worst by far. But I always knew that….. Hoping the 26 question LR was the experimental.

  5. Whut says:

    I felt like the last game was so confusing. I had to guess on the second to last one even with time left, I just couldn’t figure out how to interpret the rules. The rest weren’t that difficult in my opinion.
    The re was meh, but the comparative one made me work for it.
    The lr was regular? But I can’t tell which one was experimental. I had 3 sections of 25 questions each.

  6. Yup, I did it says:

    The test wast as bad as I thought it was going to be. Kinda skipped the magazine spread and just skimmed and did the fill in (I ran out of time for that one).
    Just wondering, does anyone think that one of the LR sections was experimental? I ask because the first section was way too easy.
    Overall not a bad experience at all. I was really expecting to see a few Mauve Dinosaur games *breathes sigh of relief* Thank God!!!!

    I’m just glad its over and I’m glad to finally have my life back!!

    I thought the LR was standard. I had three 25 question LR sections so I couldn’t really tell which one was the experimental. I had a tough time with the Logic Games, especially the fourth game. The first one had me confused and wasted some time there.

    The RC section is a blur to me. I’ve been dealing with an awful cough for a few days but test day was the second day I felt better. Everything was going fine and then all of a sudden during the middle of the second section I get an awful coughing attack. I tried holding it in as much as I could because I didn’t want to be distracting but ended up making it worse. I got permission to drink some water but by than I had tears in my eyes from the coughing/choking. When I got back to the questions I had forgotten what I read. Ended up running out of time and guessing on an entire passage.

    Advice for future first time test takers…it is better to be completely healthy when taking the test. Don’t take any chances. I’ll be taking it again in October.

    I got LR RC LR LR LG, and I’m *seriously* hoping my first LR was the experimental one. It was my first time taking the test and all the waiting between getting to the test center and actually taking the test (1.5+ hours of sensory deprivation basically – waiting for check-in to start, waiting in line, waiting in the test room for everyone to arrive, at the desk waiting for the test booklets, blah! ) and my brain took a bit to catch on. I was on a serious caffeine low by go-time.

    I vaguely remember the first section being longer than the other two, but can’t be sure. It was hard! I had 3-5 questions that I was seriously conflicted on.

    The babbling baby was in my second LR so I think that one’s legit and the third LR seemed too easy (finished with extra time to go back). Someone commented elsewhere that the LR experimental was easy though. Fingers crossed!

    RC seemed standard, with 2-3 questionable ones. The moral passage was the hardest, but the glass passage took the longest time. There was one question that just did NOT have a right answer.

    LG was one of the easiest I had ever done (or so I think!) I finished with 2-3 minutes to spare! The magazine question seemed really easy to me, which means I was TOTALLY off, or I’m one of the people it made sense to? The third question, which I can’t even remember the topic got me more than the other trees or the bonus problem sets, I went back to it to re-do some of the questions. Something with afternoon and morning sessions maybe?

    I was testing 167-168 with practice tests from 2001-2009 mainly. The Mauve Dinosaur question made me cry. Thank god there was nothing like that!

    I had logic games for my experimental which I was pretty happy about, they’re definitely my strongest so it felt good to just fly through. Experimental games were definitely easier than actual though… I also thought the last question on LG was really tough :( had to read it multiple times to just understand what it was getting at which ate a ton of time. RC I thought was average, have definitely seen worse. One reasoning section was fine the other a disaster… Had it at the end and was so drained. Overall not great..

    I definitely remember the babbling baby question, and I only had two LR sections so that one was not part of the experimental. I can’t remember what I answered there :/ It certainly started with the word “most”
