That 88/89 average for 170 is based on early-mid 90's scores where there were actual 84-85-86 raw scores converted to 170. I don't think we've seen a scale like that in 5-6 years

88.04 avg is based on Dec 96 through Oct 04.  For the last 10 tests the average is 89.4.  And again, those averages are based on tests with 101 questions.  I don't know if that brings the scale down a full point, but its probably worth half a point, so to speak.

So does someone (someones) from Princeton Review take the exam for test prep teaching purposes even though every exam taker has to swear a statement that s/he is taking it for sole purpose of applying for admission to law school?

According to Powerscore, the scale is supposed to be mostly determined by previous three years, with "minor adjustments."  Key word here is "minor."  What does minor mean within the context of the administration of a given exam?  Seems to me that nothing is minor, or rather, that the most minor adjustment can have less-than-minor consequences.

Princeton Review has several instructors take the test for the purposes of writing this up

They finish the sections in like 25 mins and take notes on the cancellation sheet instructions

That's funny, doesn't taking the test for that purpose go against the statement you have to sign at the start of the test?

Yeah, but it's not like it's against the law to lie to LSAC

how hard would it be for a PR or Kaplan employee to hastily fill out an app once the score is received, ensuring a ding at some random school, thereby 'proving' that the intention was to go to law school?
