It means the amount of questions you can get wrong and still achieve a score of 170.

At TLS and other websites with a focus on the "top law schools" the "curve" is about how many you can miss to get a 170. So a -11 curve would be 11 wrong to get a 170. A -14 is missing 14 to get a 170, etc.

So brutal! I took October 2010 last week & it seemed a lot easier...Hoping for a 162+ & praying for a decent curve! What would a raw of 72-76 get with a -13 curve?

i feel like -14 is awfully hopeful, but i'd take it. it was a 102 question test so i suppose its possible.

i had RC-LR-LR-LG-LR. i crushed everything but the games, where i nailed the first, muscled through the second (maybe missing 1-2), and then hurried through last two, blind guessing on 5-6.

i was PTing a 172 avg, and the test felt better than usual (aka 174/175) until the damn games. i think i may have -10 that section alone, hoping for a -13/-14 overall and a generous curve to crack 170. ugh.
