That isn't the entire part of it. The LSAT has the best correlation of any available test with one's success in the first semester of law school. The best correlation of success as a law student over the three years is success in the first semester of law school.
Just curious, what other tests are there?
Technically, any standardized test could be substituted for the LSAT, even the SATs. They just would have more of a random relationship, because they do not test, as well as the LSAT, what is needed for Law School. I saw a study a while ago about the relathionship between SAT LSAT and 1L performance on the LSAC website. I may look for it later, because it said basically what I just said.
Also if you have any ideas for a standardized test everyone could take that would have a greater correlation with law school I would call up LSAC with it..
