Obviously there is little information out there about feb, but what is out there isn't exactly promising. http://lsatblog.blogspot.com/2010/04/ea ... -june.html
But one thing for certain is that fewer people take the feb LSAT than any other LSAT. I think, though, that most takers of the feb LSAT, compared especially to june, are repeat takers. People that have taken the LSAT at the beginning of the cycle and not scored so high are likely to re-try again later in the cycle, and feb is the last ditch effort for that cycle. Given that someone knows this fact, they are likely to study their asses off. More studying on average leads to a higher raw score.
The other tests probably have more first-time takers, who are likely, as a population, less experienced and practiced at taking the LSAT.
This population difference, in which feb has a higher concentration of repeat takers/ back against the wall studiers, could yeild a more competitive population of test takers for this month.
My theory is that, if curving is practiced to level out the scores for each test, february will be more difficult to score in a higher percentile compared to the other tests.
This is clearly a lot of assumptions and loose inductive reasoning...but it seems at least plausible.
Did you let yourself get beat at the studying game? Trippin a little because of that?
Well don't.... at least not for those reasons. The competitive people you should be worried about are overachieving third year UGs getting ahead for next cycle. But who the fuck knows if that has an effect on it? Are they going to be better at games than you? Maybe if you didn't study.
