177/1480

I'll throw in my 2360 GRE just for fun.

I like standardized tests.

Oooo hope! I got the same SAT score.  Perhaps I can copy your LSAT score on Oct 2nd.

my scores are obviously an anomoly.. i didnt do ANY work in high school, nor did i prep for the SAT... that said, i am curious, do you guys think it is harder to hit 99th on the LSAT then on the SAT, or do you think it is equivelant.  i would expect LSAT would be a harder percentile scale because of a greater degree of self-selection for the test.  but this may not be the case... anyone?

I'd have to agree that I think its harder to hit 99th on the LSAT. I think I only prepped for a week for the SAT, but I've been prepping for the LSAT for about 6 weeks and I haven't cracked 99%, I guess I've hit 98 though so I'm getting there.

Zing! Very good, dsong. I'll tack on an extra point; keep it up and you'll hit triple digits one of these days.

Somebody once told me that a good estimate for the LSATS is to take your verbal score, divide by 100, then add 100. Thus, a 780 verbal -> 178. I don't really think this makes sense, though. If anything, averaging the verbal and math scores and then doing the /100 +100 seems more reasonable.
