I have a really hard time understanding why you think your words mean so much here.  Can you explain it to me?

The way I see it is this:

1.  You scored a 158, making you much less than any sort of authority on mastering or understanding the LSAT.

2.  You lied your a$$ off about your score being a 168, while being a pompous fncknose d00sh-nozzle to those who were struggling with the test.

So, you are an average test-taker with a penchant for lying.

Why again do you think your word so fnckin' gospel on this site?

Do me a favor and shut your c0cksucker, please.

What the @#!* are you talking about Matt?  I shouldnt have exposed statistics to a philosophy major.  :P

Yes, I really lied about my score. 

Psychology major btw, all we do is stats.  I chastised myself...so i was allowed to chastise others. Heh! (Though, I didn't really do that, my offenses were quite different, aka racist comments and accusing people of lying although I did.)

Anyways, one thing I do know about statistics is that predicting what would be outliers is stupid. 

91 is possible, but predicting it is silly.

Matt, wow you're such a genius. Wow.

What is an outlier?  Is an outlier one standard deviation away from a mean?


Please explain statistics to me, since you so rigorously studied it in your philosophy program.


Isnt it fun using statistics terminology?  I've got a fun one for you; heteroskedasticity.  You dont even need to know what it means.  Just use it. :)

Oh yeah and btw, when does one predict outliers?  You are utterly confused Matt.  You also dont get the concept of a confidence interval, obviously.  I gave you a range within which one can be 90% certain that the true mark lies.  I believe that was roughly 88.something and 91.something.  In other words, I am confident that this test will not be an outlier.
