In my case (1360SAT, prop-175-178 LSAT), it isn't really a question of corrlation.


Predicting scores again? :oops:

Ignore the BLSA, although I'm sure they mean well. YLS is obviously the leader for going into academia (although it's not exactly easy from there either). Enjoy your clerkship in a few years, etc.


Hey Ken!

I am going to have to agree with St. Jeeeeezy! The BLSA may mean well, but it looks as though you have always had an awesome academic record. If your case is anything like mine (which I am sure it is even more so) you have and will often find that you are one of the few black faces in the room...if not the only. While this may have its drawbacks (sometimes being placed in the position to speak for an entire people), I am sure you will find that you will do well no matter where you go! I have always surrounded myself with people who like me for me no matter my skin color and it has gotten me pretty far in the companion arena.

Good luck with the decision!

P.S. Florida represent!! :wink: 8)

Edit: Spelling!

The correlation in terms of percentiles doesn't work that well. Reasoning being, I don't think it would be a strech to say that at least 1/5th of those who take the SAT put in less than 20 hours of prep time. On the LSAT, however, I think one would be hard pressed to find a crowd of 100 test takers and find more than 1 or 2 that put in less than 20 hours.

SAT: 1020 (510V 510M)
LSAT: Last PT was 172, only studying that was done was going through LR Bible.

I dont know how much of a impact this made but prior to the SAT I was planning on joining the NAVY, so I didnt care. I only took it because my mom made me because she already paid for it.

I didnt know about point deductions and all that stuff.

I didnt even know you were supposed to study for it.

I think Im a prime example that theres no correlation between the two, its just about how you approach it. I just didnt care, I was pissed at my mom for waking me up! Ha, I showed her!

more like 1/5 of SAT takers put in 20 hours of prep or more.

most people just show up to the SAT
