I thought the LSAT was a straightup percentage grade with the percentile of fellow testtakers being seperate from your score itself. Are you sure that its on a gradeing curve for the raw score too?

I did not post the raw score beside some of the test scores.  Just keep subtracting one from the previous score all the way down (e.g. 175 = 93)

180  98 (out of 101)
179  97
178
177
176
175
174
173
172  90
171  89
170  87
169
168
167  83
166
165  81

how many could one have missed for a 160 on the Dec LSAT? I found the DEC Lsat exceptionally difficult compared to other practice tests I have taken. And actually voided my score afterwards... now Im regretting this.

Youre right, Feb LSAT will probably not have a generous curve at all. Do they curve against just that administration or against all administrations that year?

WOW you could miss 27 for a score of 160 ??!?!? that is exceptionally easy. That has to be the easiest curve I have seen in years. I definitely felt the toronto game was hard. but wow, i totally regret cancelling my score and keeping the feb test. I bet the curve is much harder for feb

Small correction to your post.  It's actually -28 for a 160 on the Dec 2009 LSAT. :D

You keep saying suspicious. Do you mean to imply that someone did it on purpose to somehow gain something from it? If so who, what and why?
