UPDATE: Thursday, January 1st@ 6:43PM(CST) SCORES ARE OUT!

We have an unexpected holiday release. I have heard there is a -12 curve but have not confirmed by seeing a score sheet. I’ll update with the score sheet when I have it!


UPDATE: Thursday, January 1st@ 6:47PM(CST)

Here is the score conversion table:

It is a -12, which indicates a somewhat less difficult test in terms of getting a higher raw score than we’ve seen lately. Let us know how you did!


 

As is tradition here at lawschooli.com, here is a post where we can discuss the LSAT that was administered today, December 6th, 2014.

We’ll update this post to track the December 2014 LSAT as we get more information and you can use the comments section below this post to discuss the score release and anything else related to this test (how it went, do you need to retake, etc.)

UPDATE: Thursday, January 1st

As score were released today—somewhat cruelly in my opinion—on New Year’s Day, a lot of people might be contemplating a retake. Don’t get stuck doing the same stuff over again!

    • The Mexican politics was harder than I had anticipated. Should have skipped that one. The perfume and lawyers tactic “thunder” were interesting. The other one I didn’t get to.

  1. Yes, I remember a color question in the games. I had 3 LR, 1 game, 1 RC.

    The game also had a question about musicians and order of performances. The last one was a grouping game. Not the easiest of game sets I think..

  2. I think that I did OK but I am planning on continuing to study for LSAT at least till the scores arrive and if my scores seem to go up even after that and retake in February. It is of no use to go to bad law school and most schools except the very best ones seem to accept the better or averaged score. I will fight till the last moment lol. But all in all, pretty ok test. No big surprises.

  3. I also had the test with the 2 LG sections. The second section was so easy! I really hope that the first LG section was the experimental. When I saw game 2 I was like nope….skipping this one haha. I got caught up on the RD section though and I almost ran out of time. Hopefully I still score well on that section!

    I hope everyone did well on their tests today!!

  4. I thought games went okay. I had 3 LR sections. 2 easy 1 difficult. Reading Comp sections were really dense and the questions were bizarre in my opinion

  5. The first set of games was prolly the experimental… whoever thought to incorporate sequencing/in & out/grouping all into one game is sinister.

    • Had two LG sections on my exam. Felt good about both but felt like I got 23/23 on the second. Hope the first was experimental. Any word? Second LG consisted of factories for last game.

      • I had two logic games as well- first was much more difficult than the second but I can’t seem to remember which games were on which section! I do remember the colors and rugs- but anything else on this section? I remember a rule substitution on question twelve of the second section (please remove if too revealing!) – otherwise the games are pretty mixed up in my head.
