Studying for the LSAT / Anyone have historical LSAT data?
« on: June 19, 2006, 05:50:29 AM »
I want to do some number crunching, figure out the likely range of curves, do some statistics... But I haven't found a good source of LSAT data from the past 5 or so years.

I'd like to find data like: number of questions on each test, raw score conversion chart, number of tests administered, etc.

Here are the sources I've found so far, but they only have partial data:

http://www.powerscore.com/lsat/help/correct_targeted.htm
http://www.powerscore.com/lsat/help/scale.htm

Does anyone have any more?  Anybody know the sources for Powerscore's data?  They don't have any footnotes.

Obviously you have to do what's right for you but if I'd been consistently missing only about two questions on practice tests and I suspected that I'd missed 17(!) on the real thing, I would cancel.  No question.

Hmm!  Interesting.  Yeah - I was really thinking about it.  I did mean 2 per section, by the way - so that's 8 or 9 misses compared to possibly 17 on the June test.

But now I'm holding off on canceling: 

1) I actually relatively good about my performance.  I mean, I made one dumb mistake that cost me 3 on LG, but besides that, I believe the test accurately tested me.  I ask myself - what would I change?  Well, I'd work on my pacing.  But aside from that, not too much.

2) Now there's the new ABA rule wrt the highest score.

So, taking those two together, I've decided to "let it ride" and see what I get.  I'm guessing that a lot of others are doing that too.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: A little help, please?

Yep.  I also agree about the Princeton Review.  IMO, their rankings give much more info about the "feel" of a law school.  They have a lot of useful info online - these rankings, place feedback from students.  And they do appear to provide both the positive and negative feedback.  For example:

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Order of logical reasoning
« on: June 18, 2006, 02:52:34 AM »
26 had a motherload of parralel questions... ESPECIALLY on the last two pages. Those bastards.

That actually sounds like a good thing.  I think I remember that, too.  I ran out of time on the last few questions, like I'm sure a lot of people did.  So, this is the way I'd prefer to have it - the hardest questions at the end.

"In law school, having feelings is seen as a weakness..."

"You got pwned!"

I know!  It's pretty funny.

Well, denk, it sort of did come off in a way that you might not have intended...

Yeah, I realized that, and made it clear in my next postings.  The STUDENTS board is a strange place, for sure.  There doesn't seem to be the kind of community and long-time members like there are over here...

"Take this sh*t back to the prelaw board where it belongs..."

Where's the love??

That's exactly what I was thinking.
