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, October 3rd, 2015.

We’ll update this post to track the October 2015 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.

  1. I had 3 LR. LR LR RC LR LG

    The first LR had a question about replies and high-products in the water

    Another LR had something about immune system and stress I believe or maybe it was in the first LR I don’t remember

  2. ****REMOVED BY MODERATOR****

    games/passages/questions/etc.

    • Bailey Rosecrans on

      That’s the way I did it to. To me, that was the easiest game. I had a harder time with the one about shifts.

      • Great seems we are on the same page then. I found the shifts one was the most difficult game too.

  3. I had 3 LR sections, one of which I didn’t finish because the first 10 took much longer than they usually do. Anyone else?

    • There was one that I did feel took longer, but I only had two sections of it… I usually end the game by guessing on 3-5 questions(usually like #15-20), but I ended up having 8 I didn’t get too. I’ve taken about 25 practice tests and it just felt odd to me…. However, I rebounded on the second one with my usual 3 questions I didn’t get to.

    • Bailey Rosecrans on

      I had 3 LR sections too. My order was:
      1. RC
      2. LR – with 26 questions
      3. LR – with 26 questions
      4. LG
      5. Lr – with 25 questions

      I’ve read that my last LR was a real one (questions about chess playing, travel from Peru to Mexico, ostrich farming).

      I’m hoping my section 3 was experimental, but I have a feeling it was the section 2. I know some of the questions on section 3 were about planets and Newton’s laws of motion. Anyone else have that section?

      • I had 3 LR too. My order was LR (26 questions) LR (25 questions) RC LR (25 questions) LG so I’m assuming one of your 26 question and one of my 25 question sections was the experimental!

      • I had the same order ABBYE do you by any chance the first question for one LR was about reptiles and high-products in the swamp … it was the first question on my first LR idk if that was exprimental or real.

      • I also had 3 LR sections with the same order and number of questions (26, 26, then 25). I had the section about ostrich farming, but I don’t remember questions addressing planets or Newton’s laws in the LR sections… only the double passage about positive/negative evidence in the RC. I could just be forgetting, though. Do you happen to remember anything about your section 2?

  4. The REAL RC were
    1. confederacy/beads/ Iroquois
    2. Positive/negative evidence/karl popper: This was the comparative
    3. Beethoven
    4. patent laws/especially relating to biotech industry

  5. I had:
    RC, LR ( which I think was the experimental because the ordering of the questions was strange), LR, LG, LR

    Reading was definitely Karl Popper/negative evidence, Beethoven, Biotech/patent infringement, & the haudenosaunee confederacy.

    LG was the shifts, photographs ( not a clue guessed on almost all the questions, cook book, fall/spring “in/out” game.

    • I know the photography question got me from the start. Even the list question was very difficult!!! I think I had it down to two and just guessed…. Every other question was a complete guess!!! I feel like the game made no sense and none of the answers lined up to the questions so idk…. Did anyone understand it or finish it without guessing?

    • I only had two LR. The only thing I remember for sure is that there was a question on employee productivity v. Experience value.

      • This might be pushing my luck but do you remember if you had a question about the economy and daycare?

        Trying to think of others…

      • David I had exprimental LR.

        I had the economy improving and decreasing daycare jobs (I belive my last LR which was the 4th section)

        On the first LR (my first section) I remember the first question was about reptiles and product in the swamp.

        I don’t remember anything from the second LR (my second section).

        Someone who had normal LR sections said they had the reptile one in one of their LRs. So that one most likely the real one.

  6. I had 2 logic game sections. It was really obvious which one was experimental because the first 3 games were RIDICULOUSLY easy, I think I finished the first 3 with about 18 minutes to spare. The last game was SO weird. It was about members of a board (a chair, a vice chair and members who could be employees of that company).

    • Same for me. I couldn’t believe how fast I breezed through them & knew it had to be the experimental b/c I was able to finish the entire section. Been I got to the next games section, it just solidified what I though.

  7. I had one logic games section and they weren’t too bad. The only game that got me was the photographers question, it seemed impossible to me. I had three logic reasoning sections, the first, second and forth.

    • Can someone enlighten me as to what exactly the accomplice in a crime question was? I’ve be wracking my brain and I can’t think of it, starting to get scared I accidentally skipped a whole question

      • I don’t want to be too specific but it was a simple squencing game (first game) and there was a rule that mentioned a letter going into a particular slot explicitly stated in the rules with two letters that were boxed together.

    • real LG – photographs in magazine (L, M, S), AM vs PM work shifts (LL, G…G, HJ, etc)
      real RC – Beethoven, biotech, confederacy

      • Okay… So I think I’ve got this figured out… Please confirm if you can

        REAL RC – CONFIRMED
        – Patent Law / Biotech
        – Karl Popper / Postitive Negative Evidence
        – Music / Beethoven
        – Indian Tribe / Beads / Confederacy

        REAL LG – CONFIRMED
        – Photographs in magazine (L, M, S)
        – Recruiting Accomplices in a Crime
        – AM vs PM work shifts (LL, G…G, HJ, etc.)
        – Cook Book / Publishing / Fall Spring

      • Yes the 4 confirmed RC were Beethoven, Biotech, Confederacy (also know as beads), and karl popper (also known as negative evidence)

      • There was a cookbook one where they were either a summer or fall recipe…. Basically it was dividing 6 recipes up in to an undefined group… Fall or spring.

    • I had one logic game section. They were the shifts, photography (extremely tough had to guess), cook book, and an “ordering” game forgot what it was exactly.

      I also had one reading comp. section. They were the beads, karl popper, positive negative evidence (comparison passage) which was tough, and Beethoven

    • Went pretty good. I ended up having to guess on one of the games however. Other than that everything else was protocol. For RC, Karl Popper, and something about beads. For LG, something about shifts and photography.

      • I’m with you Roy I want to cry. I have been studying since June 2014 aiming for semptember 2014. I just sit in my room all day doing lsat, as im sure eveeyone else does. I felt so emotionally drained that i decided I have to do it this time…but nope def. A retake anyone interested in being partners?

        Roy…just remember you fall 7 times, stand up 8

    • I went into it thinking I would do great, especially the logic games. This is my third time taking it, the other two being over five years ago right after college. Life happened and I didn’t attend. Both of my scores had expired so I needed to retake. I just took numerous practice tests and did the powerscore bibles. Something happened with my strategy and timing on the logic games. I had two sections of it… After the first one, I was hoping it was experimental and that I could fix my timing on the next one. Came to the second one and same thing happened. I have no clue what went wrong. Other two went as expected though.

    • I think it went ok. I feel ok about RC (I had two) and LR (I had two). I got lucky and my first two sections were RC so I didn’t have to guess through the test what was experimental or not. I didn’t finish the LG section but the first two games were easy (basic ordering for the first and the photographers one second) I got part way through the shifts game when I ran out of time.

      I went into the test thinking I was not prepared (should have studied more, etc) but I found I actually knew more than I thought I did, I was able to recognize flaws and I think I did ok on the logic games I got through
