I think the test was a little on the easy side but doubt we're gonna see anything too strict. Keep these numbers in mind:

91, 89, 90, 89, 90, 87, 90, 90, 93, 90, 90, 89, 92, 89

That's the score required for a 170 from every released LSAT score from June 2003 to the present. If someone more ambitious than me wants to label which ones were 100 question tests and which ones were 101, that'd be cool.

I don't think we'll see another 93 or 92. Notice how common the 90's and 89's are. I'm gonna be perverse and say 91 because it hasn't happened since June 2003. It's due.

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?

Yeah, you're right.... I meant 92Raw=170, so -9... I think that's a little pessimistic, somewhere between -9 to -11. I'm sticking with -9, though... test was really easy. That sucks, because my practice scores are better with harder scales (except a couple freak out bombs, like mapping logic games)

Your last post may very well be the only reason I get any sleep over the next couple weeks

I also seem to miss in the same range of questions regardless of the difficulty- I was praying for a hard test. No luck.

Ditto.

-0 will be a 180

and since that's what all of us here are getting, it really doesn't matter so quit stressing and smile

Thanks for matching raw scores up with the # of test questions. But wasn't this test we just took 101 questions? I don't remember personally, but I read a few people say that.

one of the questions smelled like it was going to get tossed.
