Studying for the LSAT / Re: Why does the February test have such a bad rep?
« on: December 04, 2007, 02:33:40 PM »
In a way then, if most of the test takers aren't as accomplished/brilliant/prepared in February, then wouldn't it be better to take a test in comparison to them? That's the logical conclusion, isn't it?

If you assume that the scores are lower because the test-takers aren't as apt, then yes.  But it's unclear (to me at least, maybe someone else has more insight on this) whether that's the case, or the test is, in fact, harder than usual.

I was under the impression, and I might be wrong, that even if they are harder, you are still only compared to the people that are taking the test with you. All that really matters is what percentile you are in... i.e. 84th nearly always means 160 or whatever.... Because of this, the difficulty of the test doesn't matter nearly as much as the people you are taking it with... I would rather take a hard test with idiots over an easy test with geniuses

But this is all just musing and guessing on my part

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Any Feb. Takers In Here?

i'm retaking in february as well... got a 161 last june, but couldn't retake since because i played college football and that kind of eats up my saturdays...

was extremely frustrated with the 161, missed 20 questions, but 9 of them came in the final section, which i wasn't fully prepared for because of the stupid 4 section practice tests... i thought that 5th section wouldn't effect me so much but i was wrong
