I think I'm just gonna talk to the person behind or in front of me like I did for my 2 other takes. I remember when I told a chick that I had studied for about 5 months, she was like "WHAT?? I studied for about a month but like 2 times a week after work ". Bet you she scored way fucking higher than I did.
Sometimes I forget that the vast majority of people are more like that girl than they are like the people on TLS.
Seriously though, when I see people all FML over their 173 PT score (looking at like half the folks on this thread) it's pretty crazy to me. Less than half of 1% of test takers even need a score over say 171.
If you have a 3.85+, you are getting good money at a T10 with a 166+. And while a 180 is higher than a 174, neither of those numbers will markedly affect your final outcome at acceptance to Yale, and certainly not Stanford. Lets not even mention HLS who will be riding behind Chicago within a few years.
I mean I'm all for calling out TLS neuroticism about LSAT scores, but your claim about 166/3.85 getting 'good' money at T10 is patently false. I definitely outperformed my numbers this past cycle with a 168/3.98, and the best T10 offer I got was $120k at Michigan. Sure that's a pretty good outcome, but someone with a weaker GPA and two points lower is definitely not getting anywhere close to that (probably paying sticker or 85% tuition) unless they're URM.
