June 2012 Score Release Date is Here!

BPPmatt-lsat-blog-june-2012-score-release
For those of you who weren’t already obsessively refreshing your LSAC account and GMail, scores are starting to be released for the June 2012 LSAT.

Initial reports state that a question was removed from scoring. This is the same as it never having been on the test at all – whether you got it right or wrong, it won’t affect your score in any way. To top it off, the question was a Logic Games question. As the one section on the test where you can absolutely prove your answer, it’s a little weird to see a question removed from scoring in that section. My guess is that the wording of the question was ambiguous, not the answer. We’ll have more on this when we see the test.

As far as the score conversion goes:

A raw score of 90/100 earns you a 170.
A raw score of 73-74/100 earns you a 160.
A raw score of 54-55/100 earns you a 150.

That’s pretty tight, historically. We’ve been seeing more lenient conversions recently, but June is infamous for it’s tough conversions (though that does suggest the test is easier).

More reports as they come in, but feel free to post your own info in the comments section! This time, with less moderation!

    162. Exactly what I was afraid of. Guess I better start prepping for October. Sigh.

    167, do you think this is good for georgetown, combine with 3.87 GPA from an Ivy League uni??

    • Hank says:

      I don’t like to make hard-and-fast predictions, but with those numbers, you definitely have a shot at Goergetown!

    172! Thank you Blueprint!

    Is anyone else having trouble logging into the LSAC website?

    Do you think with a 149 and a 3.9 gpa, my chances of getting into sw are high?

    • Hank says:

      You’re way above their GPA 75%, but a little below their LSAT 25%. I certainly think that you have a solid shot at an admission, but not a guaranteed one. Always remember, though, there are no promises in the law school admissions game!

    I was PTing at consitent 175s (with one 174 and one 176 and one 180) and I came out of this test with a 173, a couple points lower than my PT median. Is it worth trying to retake in October for shot at a 175+ or will my high gpa (3.95) carry me through? I’m trying to go to a medium to lower T14 or school right outside the T14, with a decent (maybe full?) amount of money. If those two points are going to be the difference between a half and full ride it seems worth the effort… but honestly the idea of retaking the LSAT makes me a little sick to my stomach, espcially since I’ve heard high scorers have a tendancy to go down their second time…

    • Hank says:

      That’s a tough call. While you should be fine as far as admission goes, calculating scholarship money can be a bit imprecise.

      In all honesty, every point on the LSAT helps. With that GPA, a 175+ would put you at the top of the top of applicants, and thus ensure more scholarship money.

      Alternatively, since I would expect to hear back from most of the lower/mid-T14 early with your numbers, you could wait to see what scholarship offers you get and then take the LSAT to negotiate for a higher amount. That’s a bit of a gamble (as they may hand out most of their funds before you get the second score), but it might save you going through the LSAT again.

    172 thanks to Blueprint (and a sacrificed social life for 2 months)! Harvard is my dream school. With a 3.94 GPA from a not-so-great school and no extracurricular activities, what are my chances?

    • Hank says:

      Congrats!

      You’ve got the numbers for it, and HLS tends to be a little more numbers-driven than the other T3 (Yale and Stanford).

      However, HLS has definitely been trending towards accepting more people with work experience lately (as have most top schools). It’s getting harder each year to gain acceptance without something extra on your resume.

      You definitely have a chance if you apply this year, but I would also consider taking a year or two off to get some work experience. That will make you a much stronger candidate across the board, both to law schools and Big Law firms after graduation.
