June 2008 Curve Prediction
« on: June 21, 2008, 08:36:21 PM »
I'm not sure if there is a thread exclusively for this, although I know it has been mentioned here and there. What are your predictions, based on past scales and your feel of the test's difficulty. I feel like a -9 = 170 is possible, and -5 for a 175.

That's kind of where I'm thinking it's at. I know this probably an obvious question but do we see the scale? Or just our score and percentile rank?

If the test is disclosed, the scale is disclosed, and contained in your report.

The optimist in me is insisting that the games were a bit unusual and the RC threw enough people a curve to push the scale into average territory, but the realist tends to agree with you.

I going with -8 for 170.

Seems to be general consensus. Maybe a little too grim? I hope so, but that test just felt so darn easy. Here's a good strategy for future tests... all LSDers pool our money together to get friends and family to bomb the test, making a better scale! We could choose a one test each year as LSD LSAT Day and get a bunch of dummies to take the test cold.

Seriously though, the anticipation is killing me. I know I rocked the test, but even so if the scale is fuxed because it was easy than so am I  :-\. Also, besides the scale I wake up in cold sweats thinking a misbubbled an entire section. This has never happened to me once or practice... but it is still possible, right?!

Maybe I should just lay off of LSD until July  :P

I hope so! If that happens I'm going to treat myself to a night of cakewalking at the Mustang show. (Screw you, Radar Losers)

That's what I originally thought as well.
But looking back, the games were too easy -- I never finished so quickly before.
And I don't remember any particular LR question that gave me a hard time.
Even though I was surprised that I had to guess on two questions for RC, in hindsight it was my fault for spending too much time ruminating contenders on the comparative reading part.
So a harsh scale wouldn't surprise me.
But -10 wouldn't surprise me either, so who knows?

But those of you who are guessing -8 (and even the one person who says -7)remember that there were 101 questions so a -8 would mean 93/101 would give you a 170 and I think the highest ever was 92 (june '07). Am I right?
