SAT to LSAT predictor

SAT to LSAT predictor
« on: October 04, 2004, 10:17:40 AM »
I'm trying to collect more data. Tell me if this work for converting between SAT and LSAT scores, if you've taken both. (Note that it's only valid if you took the SAT after 1995.) From what I've seen, so far so good. Rounding error is +/- 1 point.

LSAT = (SAT)/20.7 + 100.7

My starting points, for those who are interested: From the MENSA entrance requirements, I'm equating a score of 163 with the 98th percentile of the general population. I'm also equating the median SAT of 1019 with the theoretical median IQ of high school graduates, 110, which is about the 75th percentile.

Yeah, mine came out a 168, which was where I was testing during prep.  Way to rub it in.

hmm..mine says 161.
well, my practice score is around 164, but since  i took SAT when i was recent immigrant, so i guess
my english skill improved a bit. anyway, not totally correct, but neither totally incorrect, i'd say.

LSAT = .0483(SAT) + 100

I'm also equating the median SAT of 1019 with the theoretical median IQ of high school graduates, 110, which is about the 75th percentile.

163 isn't 98th percentile. However, if you adjusted the figures, I'd be interested in playing with an ACT/LSAT predictor.
