What if ABA decides in a subsequent year to go back to the old policy of averaging scores? With that as a definite possibility...

What kind of reasoning is this?  You didn't do too well on the LR, did you?  :-)

...and likely create an economic (slight) imbalance between those who can afford to roll the dice THREE times, and those who can only roll it once...

I don't buy it.  If you can't afford to take the LSAT a couple of times, there's no way you can afford law school.

The LSAT fee is the *cheapest* component of the whole thing.  My GASOLINE to get to the test site, 1.5 hours away, twice (because I test-drove it), was nearly this amount.

...Now the pressure is on not to take it once, but twice or even three times.  Add to that that medians will likely go up even more than usual...

Not yet ... People are still looking at 25/75 statistics from the previous policy.  And their decisions to retake will be based on this.  But NEXT year, though, there'll be an across-the-board score inflation.

We are truly living in a golden age. :-)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Difficulty of Dec 05 vs. June 06

Hilarious avatar! As far as Dec goes, I believe they scale performance based on percentiles over the last 3 years, and derive a theoretical scale from the predicted difficulty of the test that they might make small adjusments too based on actual performance.

Too be really specific, I believe they make the comparisons to how test-takers do on THOSE SPECIFIC QUESTIONS, not for example, the tests themselves.

No, that was a joke.  It's saying that I guessed D for the last three.

I'd vote for Columbia, because they own a record company as well.

Law School Rankings / Re: Bash UCLA here

It sounds like UCLA is the anti-Portland.  Up here in Oregon, there's a real anti-Californian sentiment.

I also stand firmly with the minority.  I found this question relatively easy;  When working on it, I decided that the superlative embodied in the other AC was unwarranted.  The minority opinion's AC is simple set inclusion.

(Was that abstract enough for y'all?)
