Hi, longtime lurker finally decided to join and post. I have a question about %iles and the number of ppl that they correspond to.

I somehow pulled off a 177 on the June 06 LSAT (highest preptest = 172, so go figure) and this is apparently in the 99.8th percentile. It would seem that out of the 27000 or so (estimating based on last year's numbers), maybe 60 people received a score this high. But it appears as though half of this discussion board got this high. I don't mean to imply that anyone is lying here, I am just curious if this number is accurate or if I am missing something.

How is this possible??? Is something wrong with my math?: 27000x(1-.998) = 54.
