One girl at my test center asked if she could bubble in her answers on the scantron with a pen.

Bonus points if it was a pink gel pen


Scented!

With sparkles...

He "only" got 169.  (98th percentile.)

It's surprising how hard people here are on themselves. 

169 is 97th percentile.  I would know.   :'(

I would gladly accept a 169. People who complain about things like that will never ever be happy.

Don't worry.  I'll be absolutely ecstatic if I get into Harvard, my dream school, with my 169.  There's "never happy" about it.  Plus, I think my comments fit it with the thread's title.   ;)

Your numbers don't look so bad, either.  Good luck this cycle!

Did you take the June test?  I feel gipped.  This was the bottom of my practice range-- I'd say only 1/5 of my tests were this low.  I blame the June scale and rotten luck.

169 IS good but not when I was expecting a floor of 171.  We definitely underperformmed here.  I hear ya brotha.

Sorry, my gripe wasn't with you. Just the board in general. There is nothing wrong with shooting for a 170+. By all means, go for it. Just complaining about a 169 seems silly. It's the 97th percentile! That's a huge accomplishment in my eyes. It just seems nothing is good enough for some people. Be proud in what you've done. It's a kin to complaining about hooking up with Jessica Alba.

Good luck to you too. I know I need all the luck I can get.

The plus is I got accepted to a couple PhD programs so I have a back-up plan.

I felt pretty bad for the girl from another country that just moved here and thought that she wouldn't need to take the test...or the older man who asked me if they would be supplying writing utensils.

Someone I work for was telling me that someone she knows had a convo with her on Friday about the LSAT, which went like this:

Guy: "I'm taking the LSAT this Saturday."
Lawyer: "Oh yeah, did you study?"
Guy: "Yeah, I went over a book last week."
Guy: "What did you get on your LSAT?"
Lawyer: "I got [within 150 to 160 range] out of 180."
Guy: "It changed, the highest score you can get now is 171 so it should be easy."

He was serious and;
He was def "that guy"...
