October 2012 LSAT Instant Recap

I just walked home after taking the third LSAT of my life. If you’re reading this, you likely just took the exact same exam. Congratulations to all of us, my friends, and thank God it’s over.

My experience was interesting, to say the least. I’m currently in the middle of a bout with mono, and haven’t eaten any solid food in a few days. Also, while we at Blueprint LSAT Prep always recommend getting a good night’s sleep before the test, I foolishly spent all of last night fighting off a fever and running to the bathroom. Needless to say, I don’t think I pulled a 180. C’est la vie.

But enough about me, let’s talk about the October LSAT.

The Morning Cometh: June 2012 LSAT Aftermath

Once again, a Law School Admission Test has come and gone. The June 2012 LSAT will never come again, and now comes the dreaded period of waiting for your score. So what are people saying about the test?

We’ve heard back from a lot of students, and it seems like the difficulty may have been pretty standard. Some thought it was hard, but a pretty equal number thought it was easy, and most people seem to think that it fell somewhere in the middle. So you shouldn’t be too surprised if it turns out that the curve was neither particularly forgiving nor damning.

June 2012 LSAT Instant Recap

Summer starts a week early for many of you this year.

The Solstice is next Wednesday, the 20th, but that magical moment when the proctor calls time on the last section will feel just like when the school bell rung on the last day of fifth grade.

While you don a sun dress and head to the park or beach (and look slightly like a crazy person, as the exam won’t be over until the evening), however, we here at Most Strongly Supported will be compiling information on the LSAT and commenting on your reports!

So what did you think of the exam? Hard? Easy? One killer logic game? Experimental in the writing section this time? Please post below, but remember that all comments will be moderated to enforce the LSAC’s prohibition on specific content.

February 2012 LSAT Scores Released Today

At the buzzer…yes!

The mysterious, all-powerful beings behind the curtain at LSAC released the February 2012 LSAT scores today (about 10 minutes ago, in fact) — roughly 24 hours before their estimated release date. So wipe that sweat from your brow, LSAT students, and check your email and LSAC account, because although it came down to the wire, you can finally see how you did. But remember: LSAC sends out LSAT scores in random waves instead of all at once, so it takes several hours throughout the day for all LSAT scores to find their homes. Don’t try to convince yourself it isn’t random, either — as if scores are sent from highest to lowest. It’s. All. Random.

As you know, the February LSAT is undisclosed. So we won’t be able to help you out regarding the February 2012 LSAT curve.

February 2012 LSAT Blog Carnival

It’s been two full days since the February LSAT, but people are still talking about it. How hard was that reading comp section? Did LSAC slip the experimental section in another rare spot? What about the fact that is appears to have been only 100 questions long (as opposed to the usual 101)?

To find out what the people are saying about Saturday’s LSAT test day, let’s take a look around the blogosphere in another magical installment of the Most Strongly Supported Blog Carnival — 2012 February LSAT-style:

Brenda here was so pumped to get the damn test over with she turned into a cat. Savannah just wanted a 168. And Sasha is relieved to be at the conclusion of a long journey.

The Morning Cometh: February 2012 LSAT Aftermath

Like the Nightman, the morning after the LSAT cometh.

The February LSAT is weird in a number of ways. First, it’s in a twilight period – very late for people applying to start in the fall; very early for those applying to start in 2013. There are significantly fewer people taking this exam than any other during the year. And finally, it’s undisclosed – those of you who sat for it will never get to see which questions you got right and wrong.

Most of what I heard said that, while not particularly difficult, this was a weird test.

The first thing that stands out is the bucking of the recent trend towards difficult RC.

Sizing Up the December 2011 LSAT

December LSAT scores came out last week, which was quite the momentous occasion. Most people, naturally, focused on their specific scores. But what about the test? Was it par for the course, or did it stand out from the pack? I’ve taken the test, and am ready to pass my judgment. But first a word of warning: if you’re planning on taking the December 2011 LSAT soon as a practice test, you probably shouldn’t read on. Knowing what’s coming on a practice test can spoil the surprise, whether in regards to the curve, individual sections, or just general impressions. Otherwise…

The December LSAT was pretty conventional. Somewhat difficult, but conventional. There wasn’t anything on the test that really stood out as being noteworthy or new. The LSAT curve was generous, allowing -14 for a 170, which seemed fair. The test was harder than usual, but in predictable ways.

December 2011 LSAT Blog Carnival

We’ve done what we could here at Most Strongly Supported to recap the December LSAT — starting with the instant recap on Saturday and then the morning cometh on Sunday. Be sure to check out the comments in those posts; there’s some good stuff in there.

Now let’s see what those who took the LSAT and for whatever reason didn’t come to our blog are saying about it. It’s time to hop on the December 2011 LSAT blog carnival. Please keep all hands and items inside the ride at all times.

In the front of the ride (always the longest line) are a former shopaholic and a 2013 graduate of Wabash College. The first blogger wanted to cry after she took the December LSAT Saturday because she had been studying since 2009. It sounds like it paid off, though, because she wrote that the actual LSAT was easier than her practice LSATs.

The Morning Cometh: The December 2011 LSAT Aftermath

After (what were hopefully) months of studying, the December 2011 LSAT has come and gone. It’s been over 24 hours since the test came to an end, and the dust has mostly settled. So what will its place in history turn out to be? Well, it seems like it was pretty forgettable. The word of for the day yesterday was “standard.” No one came running out of the test saying that there were entirely new question types or particularly monstrous elements or anything like that. It was actually surprising just how unsurprised everyone felt. Whether people did well or poorly, relatively few people had strong feelings. What people do seem to agree on, at least partially, is the following:

Games – These seemed to have been very conventional. Early reports indicate that the first two games were very easy.

December 2011 LSAT Instant Recap

Looks like someone finally has time to start holiday shopping.

The December 2011 LSAT snuck up on all of us, but now it is a thing of the past. Before we hit the mall to visit Santa, let’s discuss how the LSAT went. Voice your thoughts in the comments.

Remember, though: LSAC prohibits us from talking about anything too specific regarding the content of the exam. No talk about which section was the experimental. Nothing about the subject matter in reading comp. If your comment doesn’t make the cut, it’s because we didn’t approve it. No hard feelings.

Now let’s dig in.
