High LSAT Score Qualifies for Mensa
« on: December 30, 2004, 10:01:08 PM »
FYI: Anyone with an LSAT score of 163 (or higher) after September 91 qualifies for MENSA US. You have to cough up a $30 application fee, and $62 bucks a year to be a member but hey, it's MENSA.

I got this off their website:

Qualifying Test Scores
 
American Mensa accepts scores from approximately 200 different standardized intelligence tests. Often potential members have taken acceptable tests at other times in their lives and may not realize that they already qualify for membership. While not a complete listing, applicants frequently ask about the following tests...

LSAT
prior to 1982 662
1982 through 5/91 39
effective 6/91 163

Wow.  Only 163?  Mensa says their membership is restricted to "people from every walk of life whose IQ is in the top 2% of the population".  I wonder why scoring in the 90th percentile on the LSAT is good enough?

It's the top 2% of a normal distribution, so LSAT takers aren't normally distributed they often tend to be right skewed.

Oh yeah, I wasn't thinking about that.  The mere fact that we took the test means we rule! :)

Dude you are such a charlatan. You scored 156 the first time so maybe MENSA should look at this score. Its so ludicrous. Why dont you have THAT next to your avatar? You can take the LSAT 50 times and luckily score above 163 and then come here full of self congratulation. You are real pathetic....
