LSAT vs. PT score (poll)

Postby BigA » Sat Mar 20, 2010 8:46 pm

So I remember reading an article -- it must have been a link from this site -- that said you could expect something like a 3-6 point drop from your PT scores to your actual LSAT scores. That sounded pretty pessimistic, but I keep thinking about that. So I would like to see how people's PT scores and LSAT scores actually compare. Please only vote if you've taken the actual LSAT. You can see poll results by clicking on "view results" right below poll options.

Note: there's up to 3 options for if you've taken the LSAT multiple times.

Similar polls have been done before:

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=109330

The search is useful on this site, but the google search is more useful. This is because with google, you can search terms like "PT 49" and not have it get mad at you for too common a search. For an example search re: this thread see linky:

http://www.google.com/#hl=en&q=site%3At ... 88018abe0f

which brought up for me (fifth hit): http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/v ... 2&t=111604

In addition to this: http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/v ... &sk=t&sd=a
from one of the threads.

It would be nice if there were "stickied" polls of this type since it's so common.
