highest score for non-native English speakers

Hey all. First-time poster here.

What's the highest score you heard a foreigner scored on the LSAT?

The reason I am asking is that a friend of mine from Russia score 174 on October 2010 and a guy from Pakistan scored in the 130s. What a difference!

I know two international students on here fairly well. One scored a 176, one scored a 177.

It's not related to your country of origin, but rather your comprehension of English (and your preparation)

I had a Chinese student who didn't move to America until after college and wasn't an english major. He spoke in heavily accented English and made frequent mistakes with both tense and subject/verb agreement. he got a 172 on the real thing, almost all the misses on rc. Probably the most impressive intellect I've had as a student. I always found it amusing that most people would tune out when he offered up his rationale for choosing or eliminating an answer choice, which were generally good enough that I didn't need to modify them.
