I had an embarrassing LSAT score and passed NY on my 3rd attempt. I know someone who had a 149 LSAT and passed NY on her first attempt.

I wouldn't worry about the numbers. People on law review from our school, Rutgers, failed. Put the time in and you'll be okay.

I scored a 150 on the LSAT and passed Nevada in 2008 and Utah in 2017 both on my first try. The LSAT doesn’t mean shit, as a lot of people who took it may have not taken it seriously (and I didn’t because I knew I’d get into my school of choice given how new it was at the time and my other academic credentials).

There's a correlation, it seems, but, truly, one shouldn't think that their LSAT score dictates how they will do on the bar exam. The bar exam tests legal analysis whereas the LSAT tests logic. Practice the skill of legal analysis and provided you sufficiently learn the material you are on your way to passing the bar exam.

The pass rates are lower as evidenced by the par passage rates of schools with LSAT medians below a 160. This much is undisputable. This is about degrees of likelihood, not absolutes.
