Your January 2019 LSAT Instant Reaction


Congratulations to all January LSAT takers! You’ve endured four hours of intense testing and now you’ve emerged — hopefully — triumphant. You’ve been through the proverbial ringer, all the logic you had stored in your brain rung out by each of the six sections on the exam. Whether you felt those sections went great or just OK or maybe even not great, one thing is certain: the test is over. And that is worth celebrating.

So we wish you a safe and happy day of post-exam celebration. Drink deeply from the cup of life. Toast the names of forgotten logicians. Spare a kind word for your LSAT instructors. And if you need a space to share your feelings about the January exam, we have a comment section for you to unburden your mind!

But beware, LSAC doesn’t like it when you get too specific in your post-exam jabber. It’s cool to discuss how difficult certain parts of the test were, the merits of your proctor and test center, and the topics of passages and games and LR questions. It’s even cool to try to identify the experimental section on your test. It’s less cool to discuss the answers or how to get them. There are still folks in Hawaii who have to take this test, after all. 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 of what’s acceptable.

But enough with rules. You had your fill of those on that Logic Games section, we presume. Congrats again, from all of us at Blueprint!

Update: We have our thoughts on the January 2019 exam here.

    Overall, I didn’t think the test was that bad! The order of sections went as follows for my exam: LR (25), RC, LG (Exp), LR (26), LG. I thought the reading comp and logical reasoning was straight forward and as expected. The 3rd LG section (Experimental, likely) started out okay but ended with a brutal game (potentially grid game type). The section 5 LG was much more in line with what I’ve seen on practice tests (Order, Grouping, and tiered games).
