If you're not good at math the LSAT is infinitely easier than the math section of the SAT. It's always puzzled me how many people don't get that it's possible to be really good at verbal reasoning etc. but not at math. The two skills really aren't the same at all. I mean there's a reason a lot of the people in law school are in law school and not in med school or getting a degree in finance etc.
THIS. GTFO with the '800 Math SAT is easy to get' bullshit. I found LSAT infinitely easier than the SAT.
800 math is not "easy" to get in the same way a 172+ LSAT is not "easy" to get. but honestly, 800 is kind of the floor for the type of people who go to top engineering programs. saying that a 710 math means you should never ever consider law school is just stupid.
Yeah, the point is that an 800 on math is much easier to get than a 180 on the LSAT. An 800 Math is like 98th percentile, which is like a 172, whereas a 180 is like 99.999% or something crazy.
A 710 is probably more like a 165, which while by no means bad, is not a "wow you should definitely have been an engineer/lawyer!" score. 20,000+ kids each year get an 800. ~200,000+ get a 700+.
