Close enough, :D

A difference is that I didn't study for the SAT at all and I was hardcore about studying for the LSAT (self-studied, no prep).
My GPA started with a 2 when I took the LSAT...
I guess that gave you the motivation needed to push for the two extra points. :P

I got a 1560/1600 on the SATs.

Should have gotten a 175 on the LSAT but instead got a 165.
I guess that's what happens when the math goes away but even just looking at verbal alone, it should have been a 173.

Gave me a 168, got a 173, just barely within the margin of error.

I didn't study a day for the SAT though, and did 3 intensive weeks for the LSAT (including reading the ever-living fuck out of the Logic Games Bible).

Because +/- 5 isn't a huge range or anything...

SAT prediction = 173.85; Actual LSAT score = 177. Not too far off.

I scored a 770 on my SAT verbal, so AwesomeRossum's formula actually worked exactly. Nifty.

Predicted: 165 or 168 or 162, depending on which score you use

My actual better be higher. Much higher. :roll: Or my life is over.

Wow that's pretty accurate. Gave me just over a 166 and I got a 167. It also gave me a hat, which I thought was nice.

The formula thinks my LSAT should have been two points higher. I agree. Dang it.

I didn't study for the ACT, but studied for the LSAT, fittingly I got 5 points over what it said I should.

Well, this makes me feel better. I didn't study/care much in high-school and I was doing a lot of partying (drugs & alcohol) and I scored 29 and 1270 on my ACT and SAT, respectively. Therefore, I should get a 161 on my LSAT; however, I actually plan on doing some serious prep for the LSAT. I'm shooting for a 170.

Predicted LSAT: 177 (which was what I was scoring on practice tests)
Actual: 169 (wasn't able to fall asleep the night before)

Predicted: 161
Actual: 167

I was a slacker and didn't study at all for the SAT. I figured taking the one forced PSAT session constituted adequate test prep.

Predicted: 176
this better happen or im suing this thread!! :P

edit: it's actually (M+V)/20.7+100.7
which is better for my mind because I like the number 177 more than 176 :P

Here's another formula, based on a sample size of a 70 people:

SAT (out of 1600) * .0333 + 121.03

Come now Mike, doing well on the SAT has nothing to do with giving a shit in high school.
For instance, I got about 9 Ds (but always did just enough work to pass) and managed a 1560 after 2 SAT practice tests.
Pred 176
Actual 177
That being said, I didn't give a shit in college either...

I know this is real dumb, but that doesn't make it less enticing.

Pred: 164-174 (169.5 actual prediction)
Actual: 174 (first time, no re-takes)

I took a Kaplan SAT class and did practically no other prep for a 1440 (retook for a 1450).

For the LSAT, I studied pretty hard for two to three weeks.

I am inclined to say I studied harder for the LSAT which accounts me being at the very end of the (incredibly large, actually) margin of error, but I don't know. The +/- 5 LSAT points is a lot so I don't think this is anything magical.

Seriously? What are you waiting for?

Now there's a charge.
