Studying for the LSAT / Re: Scores

not all..

this nonsensical. -11 or -12 for what? 170? beating your cousin?

lol. first time wyatt likes julie's post.

try harder

i shouldn't have to "try" to like something. seems kind of self-defeating if you ask me.

this will help some of you. look at 01-02. correlated well with a recession. wonder how this chart will look in 1 year ( think it goes through feb 09?).

lsat scale represents the percentile where you scored, compared to other test takers. amount of test takers does not change this scale.
"hardness" goes up and down. when tests require more right answers to get a reported score, that test is considered "easier".

dont be disturbed. my first diagnostic was 146. my highest practice test (dec 00) was 170. my avg for the week or two before the real deal was 164 or so.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: So, how does everyone think they did?

hardest because LSAC knows:

Economy = bad = Fewer Jobs = Alternative?

Alternative = Law School

Many more people taking the test so i guess they justified it by making it harder than it has been in recent years...?  :-[

wouldnt make a difference. its not your score that counts, its your score compared to everyone else. your reported score is a percentile. add in more people and they should fall into the same bell curve..

the only time your point is going to hold us back is when schools get more applicants and there are more people with X score like you. but it wont change your score.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Ranking California Law Schools

how do you figure, for UC-Irvine?

3.65/167 = entering class medians at UCI.

which is one factor of ranking the schools. but by that token it should be ahead of davis and hastings. it does have top faculty and its cheap (public) but it still lacks alumni and accreditation which i think will hold the first few classes back a bit...

The rest is correct according to US news rankings, at least.

of course if you go by market or specialties it can mix up a bit more.

yeah im curious about dec08 scale. my raw for that practice was 86.
i got 82 on the june08 and that was only 164 :(
i think they were both tough scales (score a lot for a low mark).
