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.
