I think I'll just /self now. I got a 740 on the writing section of the SAT II. 700 US History, 640 Math. I sometimes think of this as an indicator of what might have happened on a retake, since I was a lot more relaxed that day, though I didn't study very much more.
Maybe it just means I suck less at writing (unscored) than at the sections that actually mattered. FML.
Completely off for me. 1350 on the SAT (F-ing 780 on the writing section that no schools looked at because it was the first year they used it) Predicted a 165 for me. 174 actual. I prepped for the SAT but I prepped a lot harder for the LSAT.
It predicted a 162, and I got a 161 on my initial LSAT diagnostic.
I took the SAT cold and didn't study for it at all, so I guess that makes this formula pretty accurate.
Hopefully, studying this time will get me better than a 162. I haven't scored that low on any PT since, and I've scored as high as 178. I think anything 168 and above will make me very happy, but I want to get a 170 to give me a shot at Cornell.

I dunno. The SAT I math is ridiculously easy. In fact, an 800 is around the 86th percentile!
That couldn't possibly be right.
::edit::Yeah, that's wrong. If you think about it, it makes no sense for them to design a test that is unable to distinguish among the top 14% of student. If an 800 was at the 86th percentile, they'd redesign the test.

i don't think this is completely unreasonable though. a 180 is definitely tougher to get than a 1600. the LSAT has a higher ceiling than the SAT so i think it kinda makes sense that the formula's "input" ceiling can't give you the highest possible LSAT score
