My 99th Percentile LSAT Score Story: Aaron Cohn

I came to the LSAT from a different place than most. When I first encountered the LSAT, I had already been teaching GMAT and GRE classes for a few years. My former employer sent me to a training to learn how to teach the LSAT before I had even taken a full practice test.

I’ve always been a strong standardized test taker. I never did any formal prep for the SATs and pulled off a perfect verbal score anyway. Let’s pause for a moment so you can curse me.

My 99th Percentile LSAT Score Story: Laura Santoski

I’m basically a dinosaur in LSAT years, since I took the test way back in October 2011, when I had to walk uphill both ways barefoot in the snow to get to my testing center. Through a combination of smart preparation and good luck, I scored a 178 that day (woo hoo!), and today I’d like to share my story with you young whippersnappers, along with some tips to help you replicate my success.

My 99th Percentile LSAT Score Story: Branden Frankel

You may notice a theme in these stories, which is that many of the authors — current and former Blueprint LSAT instructors — started off with ridiculously high scores, and, rather than seeing a jump of thirty points to get into the 170s like many neophytes would need, it’s a jump of ten or fifteen points. I hear you, and, unfortunately, I’m once again going to give you a story that starts off at what many others would dream of as a test day score.

My 99th Percentile LSAT Score Story: Yuko Sin

On my way to the 99th percentile, I had three significant LSAT scores. My first practice LSAT, my first official LSAT, and my second official LSAT scores.

The First Practice Test

I took my first practice LSAT at a Starbucks. A friend of mine came along and also did a practice test. I didn’t know anything about what would be on the test, I just had some vague ideas about how it’s pretty hard-to-impossible to study for, so my first score better be good.

My 99th Percentile LSAT Score Story: Mithun Selvaratnam

After graduating from college in 2013, I decided to study for the LSAT the following summer, with plans to take it in October. I saw a 22 point increase after 3 months of self study (153 diagnostic, 175 final score). I studied intensely for 3 months while teaching English classes to elementary and middle school students part­ time. I consistently put in 4 1/2 ­to 5 hours of studying per day with only a few days off here and there when I needed a break.
