At least that way one would have a decent perspective on how they've done. I mean, fuck, it's a god damn Scranton -- run that shit and give me some feedback.
the lsat isn't curved
its equated before the test is administered
Equated based on what, LSAC's guess? How about the questions that get tossed? I find it pretty fucking difficult to believe that they don't analyze difficultly and determine a curve based about how the actual test takers do? If true, that's quite retarded.
see SOJ's post in the link i posted. Its not retarded because they already know how difficult the test is based on prior administrations. they can still tweak the equated scores after the administration if something seems really off.
That a good point. If they have already seen how people did on the questions when they were given as experimentals LSAC can make a decent assessment on difficulty.
