UPDATE: 06/12/2017 8:00AM CST – Test Day has arrived! Check back starting at 5pm CST


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 PrepTests.

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 and taken the June LSAT. Congrats!

As is our tradition here at lawschooli.com, here is a post where we can discuss the LSAT that was administered today, June 12. 2017.

We’ll update this post throughout the day to track the June 2017 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.)


A few ground rules:

  • DO feel free to share RC, LG and LR keywords, this will help us figure out what the real passages were.
  • DO celebrate your achievement! You’ve worked hard and you have completed the LSAT!
  • DO NOT post any question specifics like “I got A for #2” or write at more than just a keyword or two about any question, this could get you (and us) in trouble with the LSAC. Saying I had an RC passage about Galileo is ok, saying I had an RC passage about how Galileo was not the first person… is not ok.
  • DO NOT talk about specific game set ups, or how you tried to solve it.
  • Comments that violate these guidelines will be deleted.

Let the discussion begin! – Looking forward to hearing from everyone in the chat above.

 


Need to Retake? We’re Here to Help

It goes without saying that we want you to be in the group 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 me for support.

We are in the process of enrolling a small number of students studying for the October 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.

  1. RC (Real): jazz, psychology, judge research; forgot the 4th
    LR: I had 3, so not the greatest help. One had a question involving elements that I thought was really hard, but don’t know if it was experimental.
    Games (Real): photos, cities, forgot the other 2 but didn’t notice any “weird” games

    • I think you just made my day! I had 2 games sections, 1 I had to go back & guess like 8/answers, the other was significantly easier and I THINK the one you mentioned was the easier of the two.

      I’ll try & remember my LR to see if I can help you figure that out.

    • Retaking three years after a 166 on June 2014 LSAT, with the aim of 168+…

      LR (exp)-RC-LR(26)-LG-LR(25)

      RC was straightforward (no one killer passage, but 3/4 were “noticeably harder than the first”). LG was very straightforward (only got through three plus the last orientation question, but all four games were “easy to setup”).

      LR is always straightforward on the whole, but not all exams have parallel questions and flaw questions that force even those of us who regularly get 48+ to answer just from POE (maybe ya’ got it, but I wouldn’t be shocked). So I thought it was *slightly* harder than average at the margins.

      PERSONAL ASIDE: The thing is, if you’re somebody who can only get through three logic games, the margin for error on the verbal portion is so small for a 168/169 that it really, really sucks when you feel like there were three questions you may have gotten incorrect and 1 1/2 you didn’t have time to answer. For that’s the difference between a 169 and a 166 repeat. I probably won’t cancel, especially if I learn that I made a “good” guess on the last logic game. (For what it’s worth, I hit 170 flat on PT 66 last night under timed conditions. So suck it, LSAC! Ha!)

      • Had two games and utterly tanked one and made it through the other far easier. I’m praying the hard one was the exp.
