Yankee, are you from NY? I'm wondering if the scores are released regionally

I had a weird dream last night too.  I dreamt that I received a 173, but the score corresponded to the 52nd percentile.  Not really sure what this means...are there any strict Freudians out there??

It probably means that you have the type of personality in which you are never content with your achievements and you always downplay all your accomplishments because in your opinion, they are not spectacular relative to others.

But Freud would probably say something about your mom or dad having some sort of childhood influence on you. His theories have all pretty much been disproved along with B.F. Skinner's. But he nevertheless remains a popular figure of psychology.

Get a proctor and tell him that if you don't score over 170, you'll give him $500.00 but if you do get over 170 he'll give you $200.00

That should simulate real testing conditions.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: How to go from a 147 to a 169
« on: June 23, 2008, 11:16:45 AM »
The TestMasters guy who is teaching in Dallas got a 180 on the real thing and is only 18 years old. Nobody can question TM's talent pool.

I'd rather someone who went from a 147 to a 169 teaching me than someone who goes from a 175 to a 180. Sometimes when you just get the LSAT, it's hard to teach b/c you can't understand why other people cannot understand this stuff.

I found myself doing Cakewalk in the bathroom

I hope this isn't a flame.

I had dreams about the LSATs on Monday and Tuesday night. I've stopped thinking about the test as much since. Been trying to busy myself with work and just realizing that it is out of my hands. I think once Saturday is over and you can no longer cancel, you'll stop worrying as much.

This post is for those of you, who are depressed right now about your prep test scores,

I know many people on this board are gunners who land in the upper 160's or 170's the first time they take a prep test, but for those of you who are more like me (first diagnostic = 147) here are some pointers that may actually help.


WOAH...my initial diagnostic was also 147. I was practicing in the 170-172 range during the weeks coming up to the test. I understand how much hard work you must have done to get the 169 on the real thing. Congratulations on all your success, you are an inspiration. I hope my June LSAT is reflective of my hard work as well...though I feel like I may have scored below my practice tests. If you don't mind me asking, how were you practicing the weeks before the test?

How can the scale be made in advance? Surely the way it works it is figured out based on how difficult, those taking the test, found it to be? If the absolute best score on the test is 95/100, then surely a 180 should be 95 non? Or will that sort of issue merely be reflected in percentile? I didn't think it was arbitrarily made based on how difficult they thought the test would be, but rather, how the difficult the test actually was. I re-read the little thing in the intro that talks about this but all it talks about is score bands and SEM and accuracy coefficients or something like that. If it's pre-determined, that may kind of suck.

Well the LSAC has a reputation to uphold of consistency. That means a 170 in June 2008 means the same level of competence as a 170 in February 1995. So if they based it on how people did, that means that if everyone was dumb one year (hypothetically) and the curve was ridiculous, then a 170 that year would not equal a 170 in a prior year.

That's why I'm sure they determine the curve beforehand, based on experimental sections and how they feel the level of difficulty is. They spend millions doing research into this kind of stuff to develop a bell-curve for each test that very accurately correlates the difficulty to the curve.

So I'm hoping that the trend is a 89-91 for 170. I think last June's 92 for a 170 curve was ridiculous because they were experimenting with the comparative passages and therefore made the LG and LR easier to compensate. I've got a good feeling that this curve will be -10 or even -11 for a 170 because the RC was tougher than usual and the LGs were not as straightforward (vertical linear games haven't been thrown into a test for a long time) Not to mention that the LR was not as easy (there were at least 4 tricky ones where the credited answer is the least wrong choice)
