Supposedly...Take your SAT (say, 1200), divide it by 1/2 (600), drop the last zero (60), and add a one in front (160) to get your predicted LSAT score, plus or minus 5 points (155-165). It's a wide range, and you're not necessarily bound by it. For example, you may have been very unprepped for your SAT, etc.

You're confused on the meaning/reguirements of general correlation.

I heard it was just the math section that correlated.

The formula over there is pretty close to the one y'all have here:(SAT/21 + 101)=LSAT plus/minus 5.It seems to work pretty well anecdotally.Mostly this works because plus/minus five is a freaking gigantic range. Doing the formula in reverse is a 200-point range on the SAT (roughly plus/minus one standard deviation).http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,97120.msg2465645.html#msg2465645Wow that was only 2 points off for me.
