As for Sealocust's classmate, the 25th is still like a 165 vs a 170 median - that's 5 questions.
I haven't watched the video yet, but if he's talking about 90% of the students being within 5 points of some particular score, that's a ten-point spread, which I could totally believe. I thought you were saying that 90% of the students were within 5 points of each other, which would only be a five-point spread (and impossible at most schools).
Yes, within one another. I'm not writing a brief for the Supreme Court. Chill out. Where did I imply within some score?
I'm chill - just confused. If you're saying that 90% of a school's students scored within five points of each other on the LSAT, that's only a five-point spread, which is patently impossible just about anywhere.
