So scoring in the 99th percentile is mediocre? Ok buddy........
I believe we were commenting on our own personal expectations. I just happen to have higher standards for myself than the other 99% do, I guess.
That's awesome if you're scoring that high, but you dont have to condescend the vast majority of people who wont score in the 99th percentile. And also, just because you will not be completely satisfied with a 170-172 that does not mean your standards are higher than 99% of test takers, that just means your LSAT abilities are greater than 99% of people, which are not indicative of any level of standard. Good logic bud.
Actually, in response to those who think I'm being condescending, I was merely countering the snide remark made by a previous poster who had something to say about my personal standards. I am not trying to alienate anyone who feels insecure about his or her own LSAT capabilities. Also, in response to the honorable poster who calls my logic into question, as I said, they're personal
standards. My personal
LSAT capabilities have everything to do with my personal
standards. I apologize to anyone who took my personal
standards as a derogatory remark towards him or herself.
