Informal LSAT RETAKE stats

Informal LSAT RETAKE stats
« on: October 21, 2007, 08:40:16 PM »
Based on the success of Tetris' thread (http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,95164.0.html) and the interesting info gathered there, I thought it might be a good idea to get some informal stats for those with multiple LSAT scores. Specifically, I'm looking for any insight on large score improvements, same score retakes, and lower retake scores. We'll probably have over-representation from those with big improvements, but data from those who scored lower or about the same could be very useful. The ultimate purpose is to gather information about retaking to serve as a resource to those who are disappointed with their initial LSAT score.

To borrow from Tetris' thread again, we could use his format for the first scores:

(A) First practice test score
(B) Materials studied (how many PTs, what books, etc.)
(C) Practice test range (eg. 168-174) discounting outliers
(D) Final score (first)

And then use this format for second scores:

(E) What you did differently the second time (if anything)
(F) Practice test range going into second test (if different)
(G) Final score (retake)

Any additional comments or advice could also be useful for future retakers. Someone else can go first, and if there's any interest in this I'll post my story.  :)
