For those who have taken the LSAT... (POLL)

That's it. Please don't enter your PT scores. Sorry if this has been done, but I did a search and nothing came up. My perception is the average on this site is about 170. We'll see...

Oh and if you want to post your score, that would provide us with more information (hidden motive: would keep the thread topped) :mrgreen:

Haven't taken it yet, but why don't you make a better poll and add some more options.

What other options do you need? None.

Also, 165 here.

Well for one, add an option for people who haven't taken the LSAT so we can see the poll, and will not be tempted to put in a random choice in order to see the poll

You don't have to vote to see the results of the poll.

168 every day of my life, also, I agree on a "not taken" option so people don't just put something down.

Edit: I stand corrected

really? i mean, really?

-50

its a website, not a country club. while there are very smart people on this website, an average of 170 is ridiculous. what is the national average? 150?

I think 170 is actually fairly realistic. I would guess 166-167, though.

It does seem that it is that high though. It may be because the people who score a 175 go around and say it in every thread, but I was under the same impression.

Aha, I see. Well i'd have liked to see more differentiation, especially around the 170-174 category. I feel like there is a huge difference between 170/171 and 173/174

Haha, everyone feels like there is huge differentiation between what they got, a point or two higher and a point or two lower.

for the mother f'ing win, I would say this site is considerably above the national average just because people who visit tend to be more prepared as a whole, also the name "top-law-schools" i'm sure defers away a lot of lesser LSAT scorers and attracts more of the higher scorers.

Average on this site? Don't you mean median?

And the national average has what relevance, exactly, to the average score of users on this website?

this sounds like a LR question....

the flawed reasoning is because you are using a sample size that is not reflective of the general population as a whole... i wonder if that was the right answer..

Statistically, the flawed reasoning is not sample size, it is the fact that the sample is biased. You need a random sample to be statiscally significant. Then we can talk about size.

It would be like doing polling based on a call list that people can sign up for on a candidate's website. It is biased.
