The LSAT is one of the most learnable tests out there, and most posters here are going to study heavily for it for at least a few months. The SAT, meanwhile, is not very learnable and I don't know anyone who really prepped for it. I also did not know it was possible to prep for it, but I was a lazy high school student. There's also no fucking way there's a correlation with this and 1L grades. But here are my scores.

Took the LSAT twice, once with minimal prep and the other following the great guides on here.
175, 179
Took the SAT three times, never prepped for it, and the first one was when I was in 7th grade for that Duke TIP scholars program.
1310, 1480, 1550 (all out of 1600 since I think the writing section is stupid, but I did make a 730 on the writing as my highest score)
Took the ACT once, no prep either
35


Disagree with this entirely. I also scored extremely well on both exams, but I found the SAT to require much more studying. The grammar rules tested were pretty new for me and I needed to expand my vocab a decent amount. I tutor the sat and people make big jumps with some studying. I don't fully understand how you study for the LSAT still besides practicing. Most of the questions are just understanding basic logic.

My LSAT roughly correlates to my best ACT and is a little better than my only SAT take. No prep for the high school tests. Extensive prep for the LSAT.

Guess I can officially contribute to this thread now, though I still question the validity of any inference from this data.

SAT with no studying: 2240

LSAT with moderate studying: 175

SAT: 2340 (800 reading, 800 writing, 740 math)
ACT: 36
LSAT: 172, 180

No preparation for SAT/ACT beyond taking the PSAT for national merit scholarship. LSAT prep consisted of taking three practice tests on the three days leading up to the June exam (first take). Got my score back and had a bubbling mistake so I retook in October and prep for that was 1 PT a month out and 1 PT a few days before

228 IIRC; I don't remember my individual section scores though
