I know a lot of people struggle getting their 170+ or 175+ score, but I have a hard time believing that people can make these comparisons earnestly. I've never looked at the MCAT and I'm certain it is more difficult than the LSAT.
Meh. I took a practice MCAT before taking a practice LSAT back when I was considering medical school. I had taken some pre-med, but no orgo and no physics. My score on that was in a similar percentile to my diagnostic score on the LSAT. I agree with the above posters that it really does test different things. MCAT is more about memorization, LSAT is more about logical reasoning. But I'm not sure that makes the MCAT harder, per se. It is just an apples and oranges thing. I would put them on the same amount of "difficulty" I guess, though I think this whole comparing thing is probably dumb. I mean, who gives a flying fart? Most doctors are smart, but most aren't geniuses. Most lawyers are smart, but most aren't geniuses. Is there really any point in comparing size to see who has the bigger one when we are all above average and have enough to get the job done?
