Take our poll on twitter or let us know how you did below in the comments!

Need to Retake in June?
We're Here to Help!

It goes without saying that we want you to be an applicant that solid schools are fighting for. The prospect of getting a big scholarship at an elite school is a big carrot. If you plan to go to law school, your motivation level to grab that carrot should be through the roof.

LSATMM-orangeFor those shooting to do the very best possible on the LSAT, we invite you to work with us. We run the LSAT Mastermind Group, a small group of motivated students who can help each other and rely on Evan and I for support.

We are in the process of enrolling a small number of students studying for the December LSAT and beyond, so join now if you’re going to be retaking. Once you are in, you are in for life, with access to hundreds of lessons and weekly small group tutoring/coaching with Evan & I.

UPDATE: FEBRUARY 7TH

For those of you who are trying to figure out which section is experimental, here is a list of the REAL passages & games:

REAL RC –
– Botanists – Shrubs & Bushes
– Urban Growth
– Employee Rights
– Female Sculptors

REAL LG – CONFIRMED
– Pillows & Mirrors
– Cities – Paris, Madrid and London
– Volunteers & Days
– Bookstore

You’ve spent countless hours over the past few months pouring over lessons, drilling questions, and taking preptests.

Your friends have stopped texting you because you’ve always got your head in a book.

Your significant other has gone to bed alone while you stayed up to review your last preptest.

Your parents have called you to make sure you’re still alive.

Now you’re even starting to have weird dreams about working through LSAT questions.

As you’ve slowly adjusted to living your life in 35-minute increments, the LSAT has so thoroughly engulfed your mind that you can’t even escape the LSAT while you sleep.

It’s been a long road my friends, but alas, you’ve reached the finish line. Congrats!

As is tradition here at lawschooli.com, here is a post where we can discuss the LSAT that was administered today, February 6, 2016.

We’ll update this post to track the February 6 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.)

Let the discussion begin! – Looking forward to hearing from everyone in the comments below.

Please remember, do not post specifics about the test questions. LSAC closely monitors posts and are especially sensitive about the February test, as it not disclosed.

    • Me too!!!! I don’t 4emember a pillow and mirror game! I only had one LG. I remember one was 5 day thing, photographers, cities and that’s it. I’m thinking maybe it’s the first game I did that in 5 minutes so I don’t even remember it lol

      • If it makes you feel any better, I have no recollection of the bookstore game. I’m also pretty sure the pillow mirror game was one of the first of the games. It had to do with a bunch of things on sale.

      • I felt like this test was harder than December test. Two of the games literally had no inferences to be made. People complained about the committee game on the December test but that was super easy…it split into 2 boards but two games on this test had literally no inferences .

      • YES! None! I was staring at a couple of the games for 2-3 mins trying to find inferences and finally just moved on to the questions.

      • Ok. I’m glad that you don’t remember it as well. I was freaking out all night that I missed something. I did the first game so quick so maybe it was that one.

      • Ok I was hoping that was the case I was done so quick I don’t remember seeing that. Then I panicked all night a missed something.

  1. I used the 3 month Prep schedule for the October LSAT, but I didn’t really adhere to it. But I made sure that I studied it thoroughly before this LSAT. I got 2 LG sections and did phenomenal on them 🙂
    I know I did exceptional on one of the LR sections and horrible on the other, because I was burned out. The RC section was fairly easy and did not have difficult material. Overall, this LSAT was the easiest out of all of last year’s Preptests. Whether it was because I studied a lot with the prep schedule or I was just lucky to do an easy LSAT, I am thankful to the schedule I used. I will share my results later and hopefully earn a spot on the LSAT diaries. Thank you 🙂

  2. Hi Josh,
    I took a Blueprint course, also self-studied using the bibles, your schedule, and took practice tests over the last 5 months. I had a 155 diagnostic, however, today was incredibly disappointing, I was barely halfway through my games when time was up. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated as I am positive I will have to retake the exam in June. I greatly appreciate your response. Kind regards, Ana

  3. I am so thankful for the study schedule, also! I’ve done a practice test six days a week for a month and felt comfortable in each section, timing stress was manageable and I was able to devote enough time to think throu each and every question. There were very few that I guessed on, and I was able to eliminate a few answers before guessing. That said, I have no idea my score, I’m just comfortable with the challenge. I was sick during the December test and got a disappointing score way below my usual testing average so devoted the last month to daily work led by your suggested tests. This score will more accurately reflect my competence.

    • That’s fantastic Mary! Sounds like a very strong performance. I’m very happy to hear that our study schedules helped, but the hard work and effort that you put in is what really made the difference! Hope to hear that you killed it! Please keep me updated!

      Best of luck!
      -Josh

  4. I had RC as my experimental section as well and I thought both sections of RC was somewhat not as difficult as I expected. RC is my weakest LSAT subject, but today I feel very confident that I did pretty well on RC. The Logic Games were way too easy I skipped the Cities LG but I had time to come back and work it out at the end. The LR sections seemed average a lot of assumption questions and I rarely saw MBT questions. Overall, this exam seemed somewhat average compared to the many practice exams I’ve taken.

    • Sounds like you put in a good performance Sandy! Hoping to hear that you crushed it when scores come out! Congrats on getting through one of the toughest days of your life!

      Best,
      Josh

  5. Your logical reasoning tips helped a lot, and so did the 3 month schedule. Thankful for lawschooli and it’s affordability.

  6. I did better on the experimental logic game. Nonetheless I’m so so glad I didn’t have 2 RC or 3 LR sections. And now it’s the waiting game.

    • You are so lucky you didn’t have 2 RC!! Haha I was brain dead by the second one. So much to comprehend after the previous 2 hours of testing.

      • I can’t remember which games were in which LG section, but I remember the first one being more difficult than the second. Was the second section of games the experimental?

    • Which games were on the experimental LG section? Do you remember? I remember one being much easier than the other, but I’m drawing a blank as to what games were in what section!

  7. Very confident in LG, and most of the LR, but I had RC as my experimental section, so on top of brain burn out and having already done an RC section earlier, I bombed it. Just couldn’t think through the questions/answers. Mostly guessed. Relying very heavily on solid LG, and good-very good LR sections. Really scared the RC did me in and I got half the questions wrong.

      • Really hoping the odds are in my favor! I just know I felt so “over it” and brain dead, like I couldn’t process the information in the ‘real’ RC section at the end. Really bracing for the worst at this point.

      • I know the feeling. I think the RC experimental can be the most draining of all the experimental section types. Hopefully you’re planning on starting law school in 2017 & have a shot again in June just in case. Let me know how it went when you get scores back in a couple weeks. Best of luck!
