Asians don't average. If they do, they're kicked out of their houses and disowned by their parents.

/they above-average

Hahahha, so true!! And beat with a bamboo cane.

I dont remember where I read the stats for Asians, but they do exist. I think Asians average lower than Caucasians. However, Asians are considered Chinese, Japanese, Pacific Islanders, Vietnamese, Philipino, etc. I think if you were to break it down further within the Asian category, certain Asian populations would rank above average.

I'll try to find the link.

Yeah, I'm willing to bet part Filipinos such as myself don't fare so well.

Wow, Puerto Ricans average 138.  Does anyone know why?  My guess would be that many speak english as a second language.  But don't Hispanics as well?

I think that number may include native puerto ricans -- meaning puerto ricans who live in puerto rico. their exposure to english would be substantially less than hispanics living in the united states.

The single worst thing I read today. Did you see the Hispanic, Mexican-American average? Jesus christ I felt bad for not putting Mexican-American just to help with the stats.

The most disturbing part to me:

Canadian and foreign test takers have had slightly higher mean LSAT scores than test takers from the United States.
