Dude, this question gets raised every year around this time and always turns into an insufferable nerd-off. Long story short, the LSAT is a skills-based test not an IQ test. There's a correlation but not perfect. IQ is somewhat bullshit anyway. And I already hate myself for contributing to this thread.

Mods??

Correlation is 0.7333 (repeating, of course), meaning the most surefire way to get a high LSAT score - and, in turn, rich and famous - is to improve your IQ. I would recommend Kaplan's IQ course because if you score high enough at the end they will pay for your Mensa membership.

Are you actually serious? (regarding mensa accepting LSAT scores for membership)
If true, that is both hilarious and ridiculous.

Yes. 95th percentile on LSAT. The organization is not that elite or special, really.

You only need a 1250 SAT (for us old people) or 1300 SAT (for you millennials)

Pretty much the entire professional class qualifies for MENSA

Hahaha oh boy that is funny. Don't get me wrong, I never thought that Mensa was anything special (in fact I mentioned it in my highly sarcastic post above specifically for that reason), but I did at least have the apparently erroneous assumption that a "high IQ" society would require an actual IQ test.

I bet those IQ tests are not all that difficult either
