Bear in mind that LSAT is not an adaptive test!


It is likely that the current "paper and pencil" version of the LSAT will soon be a relic of the past. Computers have transformed our lives. The LSAT will soon be administered on computer in the form of a Computer Adaptive Test (CAT). Early indications suggest the following as possible changes:

- the LSAT CAT will contain both multiple choice and non-multiple choice question types;

- there will be entirely new question types including the possibility of a "listening comprehension" test.

The LSAT CAT will (at least initially) be less predictable and harder to prepare for. Tell your friends to take the LSAT now and avoid the new test format!

They are lying. The LSAT for entrance was 163 up until recently.

They're not lying, Buddy. They have simply revised the standard retroactively.

Well, whatever you call it, when I was applying to law school (last year), it was 163.

there's the link in case anyone is curious.  It's based on the percentile now, not the score.  For example when I took the test 167 was good enough for 95%
