What is the SAT equivalent of 50%?  Did you notice a correlation between your SAT and LSAT?

i think the SAT equivalent is 500m/500v = 1000.  but they're changing the SAT to include a writing section or so ive heard, so it'll probably soon be 500m/500v/500w = 1500.  some people have tried to come up with formulae that supposedly predict your LSAT using your SAT and everytime i plug in my numbers they say i shouldve had 171-172 based on my 1440... i wish!

I read somewhere, can't remember exactly where now, to drop the the one(1) from the front and add a zero(0) on the end.

I.E.  A LSAT score of 150 is comparable to an SAT score of 500
A LSAT score of 162 is comparable to an SAT score of 620

i dont think that is true.  a 170 is FAR more impressive than a 700 in my opinion.

This could be true if the result equals 1/2 of an SAT score (converted LSAT =SAT math or verbal).

150 compares to an SAT (subject) score of 500 = 1000 SAT total
170..... 700 = 1400 SAT
180..... 800 = 1600 SAT

Oh weird, I got a 1440 on the SAT and a 172 on the LSAT. AAAH, I'm predictable!!

Ditto. Eerie.

I had a 730 SAT Verbal and a 172 LSAT.  That comes close to matching the earlier theory.
