Yeah, it's an easier test on the whole, but I just have trouble believing that individuals are going to drive to that 99th percentile on the GRE without having done it on the LSAT.
Eh, I know I am only one anecdote, but for what it's worth... I am definitely in that boat. I scored in the 99th percentile on the GRE, with zero preparation. And I mean that literally -- I hadn't touched a single prep test, study guide, or any other relevant material. All it took was a strong vocabulary, a good grasp on grammar, and recognition of high school math. I took the LSAT after a few months of moderate studying and scored in the 93rd percentile. The GRE is simply a much easier test for anyone who doesn't have a serious problem with math or reading. It doesn't require any special skills (like LG) or the sort of mental gymnastics that the LSAT LR and RC look for.
