We have a few scale threads out there but I thought a poll and general thread would be nice.

Oh and please only vote if you took the test.  You can still view the poll without screwing up the votes.

I guessed -11 for a 170.  I'm saying again, I found the test very comparable to Dec 06 in difficulty.  If I'm off in either direction, however, I would guess the scale would be even tighter...maybe -10 for a 170.  I just couldn't see it being any more lenient than that with the LR sections being so easy.

I agree with this.  I think the games were a little more difficult on this one.  I'd be really shocked if it's not -11 for 170.  I can't believe we have to wait at least 17 more days.  The post-mortem was fun though.  :D

I know!!!!! I expected some relief after I took the test but I feel none.  I'm still as anxious and worked-up as ever.  Now instead of being anxious about taking the test I'm anxiously going over and over the test in my head.  I'm second-guessing myself to death and it doesn't even matter at this point.  I think I've gone LSAT OCD.  17 days!!!!

If the scale is say -10, then what would a 160 equal.  Is there anyway to tell?

You just described me to the T. LOL!  You know what's even worse?  With me, it won't stop here.  After we get the scores, then I'll be anxious about the entire process until I've heard from each and every school.  So I'll basically be more or less like this until around April. And I don't know what the hell I'll do if I get waitlisted at places.

I know this is a fallacious argument because what happens in the past does not predict any future events however, everytime the 170 raw score went above 90 the next tests raw score dropped 3 points two times and 2 points one time. Im rooting for the 3 point drop!!!!
