This is because our entire worthless generation has been told "you are special, you are brilliant" when in reality most prospective law students, by definition, are just normal people who should NOT expect to be in the top 2%. When you have 20-30% of LSAT takers honestly believing they got scores in the 170s, you have a lot of people setting themselves up for epic failure.
So I'd say, if you think you've had a typical upbringing, take what you honestly think you got on the LSAT and lower it by 3-4 points and that will be the most accurate measure of what your score will be.
Lose the sense of entitlement and come down to reality.
So...."typical upbringing" = low LSAT score?
Come on now...
No. It just USUALLY means a LOWER LSAT score than you thought you got. I've seen this happen several times before on this site. When people get their scores they are almost always LOWER than they expect.
