I am sure you were being condescending in your remarks;however, what you said isn't true for everyone. Not everyone will do well on the LSAT regardless of the work and effert that they put in. Roughly 50% of the test takers on each exam will get less than 150. Many will not see appreciable difference in scores from test to test regardless of the work and effort that they put in. Not everyone is like you who can practice 20 exams and get a 160+. In fact, most people aren't like that.
Yes that is true, nevertheless the test remains fair. I don't have much tolerance for people who turn to attack the integrity of the test because they cannot master it. Every answer always makes sense over all the other ones. Choosing the wrong answer is usually caused by lack of focus nothing more.
If you can't break 150 and want to practice at a small local firm and it's what you want to do that is completely fine.
But it is a whole different story when you can't break 150 and think you are better than Stanford because the LSAT and rankings are flawed, I.e. Cooley belief system that everything is flawed
Btw, if you multiply a 4.0 by 15 a 120 LSAT is still weighed twice as heavily as the GPA
