WOW that's better than the pretest score you shared with us.

How long did you study for that and what materials did you use for studying?

:yes

I studied pretty regularly from late August till the first of December - took the Kaplan prep course during that time and used their materials. Worked out well enough I suppose:)

Congratulations Josh. You pretty much have you pick of the crop for law school with your GPA and that score base on what little reading I've done.

Googled it.

"The LSAT Scoring Scale:

The LSAT is scored on a scale of 120 to 180. An average score is a 151, which tends to be around the 50th percentile. (This means that the student in question did better than 50 percent of all test takers.) A desirable score for many students is a 160, which would place a student around the 85th percentile (better than 85 percent of all test takers.) Many “top-tier” schools require around a 160 on the test.

To get into a top "national" school, you generally need to get a 165/166 or higher (95th percentile). A truly excellent score would be anything above the 99th percentile, which translates to a score of 171 or above. However, it's important to remember that you don't normally need to do this well. Even at the very best schools, the scores of many, if not most students, are below 170. "

:hail I'm not really supprised though. :laugh

Way to go ASH and definitely get the master's in something. It pays off Big time.

GAWD, I wish I would have done that. :banghead

IIRC Josh was Valley Victorian or at least close enough.

Don't worry too much, I'll be doing international trade and anti-trust law I think.


Hey Dell, what's a Valley Victorian? I don't think I ever was one, but I did kick butt in undergrad at GMU:thumbup

You had me lost for a second Josh! Congrats on the 99th percentile score!!! Like Del said though, I'm not really surprised! I think we all knew that you were capable of that. :thumbup :cheers

I screwed up on the spelling a bit. :laugh That's why I'm just a country boy, and not making the big bucks. :banghead
