Why do you want to know?

Analysis of US News law school ranking tiers, including median LSAT by tier.

[which is helpful assuming you want to know which tier of schools you are likely to get into based upon your score.]

169 - I ate it on one logical reasoning section (the section I didn't study for because I thought I had it down).

The lowest possible score on the LSAT is 120, zeikka.

I'd tell you if I could remember. I vaguely recall being in the 89th percentile. I made it into law school, so that's all I cared about.

Now, you tell us why you want to know our scores. :)

eeeenteresting. To get into a top ranked school, one can have a GPA lower than pi if you have a good LSAT score.

But I guess I knew that already.

Actually, my LSAT score was a 42. They changed the range from 10-48 to 128-180 the year after I took it.

LSAT tests are for the weak.

LSAT tests are for the weak.

As are ATM machines, PIN numbers, and the Rio Grande river.

Sorry, I thought that I couldn't have scored more than 0 on a test I never took. I stand corrected -- I either scored 120 or 10 depending on when I didn't take it.

I think we're being tested right now, by this very question.

This is possibly the worst AskMeFi question I've ever seen. (At least the ones about pissing and farting had entertainment value.) If you have a reason for asking, you sure should have mentioned it. Otherwise it's pure wankery.

Obviously. I was pointing out that you were being snarky, and not helping. However upon further review I agree that this sucks; snark away and forget I said anything.

Here's a nice web log about getting through law school.

norm: yeah, I know of a fella with 3.0 & 175 who got hisself into Penn. Not too shabby. (gives hope for a good test-taking slacker such as myself)

Word, languagehat. This ego-stroke-of-a-question deserves every stream of piss that's pissed on it. I took the LSAT. My score was square root of Bite Me.

The LSAT alone does not determine what schools you'll get into. Life experience, UGPA and diversity are also weighed heavily. Not to mention the all important alumni connections.

Btw, I went to a tier I top 20 school.

I'm taking the general GREs. What did you all get on that?
posted by jmd82 at 2:46 PM on August 9, 2004


not according to the statistical analysis that Chasfile linked to, Juicy.

I have this ruler, here. If you could just measure, and than pass it along ...

Fire, what did you score?

True, the LSAT alone might not determine which schools you'll get into, but it plays a huge role and most schools give the LSAT an unhealthily heavy weight. I should know since my GPA, extracurriculars, and essays all sucked balls but my LSAT saved my butt.

Also, the LSAT will bring you $$$ in the law school process that GPA and extra curriculars won't. Application fee waivers. Merit aid. The fact is, there are more 3.7+ GPAs in the applicant pool than there are 170+ LSATs.

In LSAT terms, a high test score may not be a sufficient condition, but it is a necessary one.

You could have asked a detailed question about law school, and I would have answered you. It's a shame, these lost opportunities.

Obsessing about the ranking of your law school gives you ulcers. Don't do it. Do well at the one you're at.

179, baby.

And then I went to med school instead.

This LSAT...is it something I'd need to be a fucking yank to have?
posted by dash_slot- at 6:33 PM on August 9, 2004


LittleMissCranky - good for you. :)

And I'm wishing I'd never answered above - over on MoFi, we're discussing LSAT test strategies right now, and while our scores are coming up, the point is to help someone out, not stroke our egos or whatever. So even though I tried to politely inquire as to wtf this question was about above, I still feel dirty. Thanks a lot.
