Alternate test sites

Postby Hitherehowdoyoudo » Sat Apr 28, 2012 1:32 am

Is it generally easier to score higher on the LSAT if you take it in Asia since it is curved, and you are theoretically taking it against weaker competition (For instance taking it against people from New Zealand/Australia who are native English speakers, but are there really that many Gunner type top law T14 applicant types from those pools? You will also be taking it in Japan/China, which will be a few native speakers and then a bunch of non-native speakers...Thoughts?

In the imaginary world in which your LSAT is curved against those people taking the test at the same site as you, yes. In the world you actually live in, this is the stupidest thing I've heard yet today.

That's not how the test works.

Yes, because students in Japan and China are known for under-performing on standardized tests...
