Neither is the LSAT. It's a rough guess. I was just making sure he wasn't retarded. I can't figure out how intelligent people get more than 10 questions wrong on the LSAT.
Credited. Someone scoring exponentially low on the ACT may indicate he/she doesn't have any kind of aptitute for tests/scholar work in general, just like high scores indicate a higher rate of success on things like the lsat. That being said, I don't think average sat/act scores are damning of your chances to score high on the lsat.
An average ACT score is around a 20. I would wager very that few people who scored a 20 on the ACT go on to score over a 170 on the LSAT. Are there any stats on this?
I think I may have misconstrued myself. The original number that was thrown around was an ACT of 32. This is a very high score relative to the general population (I think I scored like a 28 or something). Although neither a 28 or 32 is good enough to easily get into an undergrad ivy [impossible in my case, highly unlikely in his], a person scoring either of these scores could potentially get a high enough lsat score to get into those same aforementioned schools for law school, provided they study hard enough and have a well rounded logical/reading background.
