Statistics on Retakes and a little about Insanity

Postby Addicted to LSAT » Sat Oct 30, 2010 12:03 am

For any of you considering a rewrite here's some stats on the likelihood for increased or decreased scores:

LSAC provides substantial data on students who repeat the LSAT and the results they see. In summary, only about 30% of students retake the LSAT. The ones that do, are more likely to see their score increase than decrease. Approximately 67% of repeaters saw their score increase, 8% experienced no change, and 25% received a lower score. Based on repeat LSAT writers from 2007-2008,

Obviously, stats are stats and your own experience won't depend on the stats but on you, but at least this shows it's possible.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results

If you're planning to rewrite, change up your game plan.
