You guys all need a reality check.  165 puts you in the top 5%.  I work for very successful lawyers, one of who went to Loyola and the other who went to Rutgers.  The LSAT gets you into a good school.  It does not make you a good lawyer.

Will schools take into account the harder scale? Or at least, since everyone's in the same boat, will it balance out as they're considering various applicants?

I didn't get my score, or email.

165 doesn't, a 167 does, but that's splitting hairs.

What matters somewhat is whether the person who took the test did as well as they thought they could.  It could be deflating, a let down, to test much lower than your range and they have a right to be pissed.  

So lay off them for today; tomorrow if they female dog have at it, but it is unnecessary and worthless to criticize them today.

I thought I posted my score but I think LSD ate it: 168

Very "eh.." score, but I feel alright  :-\

I know you were hoping for more, but still, it's a respectable score (as was your previous score, hint, hint!)

Congrats!
I'm in a lynch mob?  I had no idea.  This is really worrying; I really don't have time for another extra-curricular activity.

You posted at 7:45 that you did not take the October test.

I am further convinced that people are being misled.

One person indicates they didn't take the test in a post 15 minutes earlier and another recieves a score that wasn't available. Hit me with your best shot and explain.



Seriously, way to be insane, argent.

On the real - congrats to all who are happy with their scores (especially retakers! going through this mess twice sucks)
