The LSAT/Law school admissions SCAM!

Postby thederangedwang » Sat May 05, 2012 6:27 pm

came across this in Yahoo answers...

THE LSAT SCAM!~!! Check out my data?
This is how I did my calculations:

--> My cousin scored 1540 on her SAT's and she has an average I.Q. of 165

--> She scored in the 80th percentile on the LSAT while scoring well above the 99.99th percentile on her SAT's

--> Therefore 1/5 LSAT takers has an I.Q. of 165 or higher

--> Since, those who score 176 on the LSAT are in the 99.6th percentile of all LSAT takers

--> 1 in ever 1004 LSAT takers score high enough for your average Harvard Law School Student

--> So you look at the rarity index for an I.Q. of 165 (1 in every 41 000 people) and you multiply that in 1 every 41 000 by (1004 / 5) to get the rarity index of somebody who scored 176 on the LSAT

--> Then you look at your results which are around 1 440 000 and you compare the average I.Q. of somebody whose I.Q. is only found among on in every 1 440 000 thousand people

--> And your resulting I.Q. is 191 (possibly 190 to adjust for the margin of error in your calculation)

--> At 165 (which is post genius levels) you would be smart enough to work in a hedge fund LONG TERM (for more than 2-3 years)

THEREFORE if you are smart enough to go to Harvard Law School, you are smart enough to be a Hedge Fund Manager, A Rocket Scientist or an Astroanaut and shouldn't even waste your time applying to Harvard Law School

(You also have to be good looking, attractive, popular and dynamic alongside your high I.Q.)


Okay: Let's assume the average person is able to jack up their LSAT score by studying excessively for it, and let's assume that the margin of misrepresentation is 115 (that you can misrepresent your I.Q. by 15 points by studying repeatedly for the

same task, then you subtract 190 - 115 and you get 175) while the average harvard law school student scores 176 on the LSAT.

THEREFORE we can conclude that your LSAT score is in theory directly proportional to your I.Q. (assuming the average LSAT taker has an I.Q. of 120 and the average Harvard graduate has an I.Q. of between 180 - 190)

>> The maximum intellectual capacity accounted for the LSAT therefore, is an I.Q. of 180.

<<<< Therefore the LSAT is simply nothing more than veiled I.Q. Test since your LSAT score is directly proportional to your Theoretical I.Q.>>>>>

>> Does it anger you that they are basing your LAW School Admissions on hard smart you are and not how hard you work?

They try to deceive you by making you think that they are testing your ability to determine the value of different arguments in a litigation proceeding (such as the excessive questions about logic, philosophy and rhetoric in the logical reasoning section but what they are really testing you on is your I.Q.) If your stupid, your not allowed to go to law school Since law school is about memorizing information and not rational thinking while the functional value of a lawyer is determine by how rationally he is able to conceptualize information

You should have posted this in the "Religion and Spirituality" board. Can a mod please move this?

Awesome issue spotter question for logical fallacy / strange assumptions class. Then again, I got 176 LSAT and my IQ is only 105 so 60% of people can be lawyers if they are boring enough.

The LSAT is an intelligence/IQ test, but only if you smoke a lot of good weed.

Ignoring the anecdotal and fallacious parts, I wonder what is meant by the cousin having "an average IQ of 165"
Also, while it is genetically possible for a superfreakingenius to be related to such a moron, I find it hard to believe and want to know more about this cousin.
Most importantly, that SAT, is that a recent score?
(when did thè SAT change to a max of 2400?)

There was a 1-2 year period where colleges would accept either the /1600 or /2400 SAT. For the high school class of 2007 (so college class of 2011, assuming 4 years) they started requiring /2400.
