How Would Presidents Have Scored on the LSAT?

Here’s a post-President’s Day fact for you: did you know that twenty six of our nation’s Commanders-In-Chief were lawyers before they were elected?

It’s no surprise that our radically litigious nation would elect so many lawyers to the highest office of the land. But prior to King Obama’s ascendance, Bill Clinton’s debauchery, or William Howard Taft’s Supreme Court appointment, each was a hand-wringing, anxious law school applicant. Just like you.

How did each of these Presidents fare on their LSATs? In most cases it’s hard to say, in part because the LSAT has only existed in its current form since 1991. However, armed with Google and a bit of reckless speculation, we can make some semi-educated guesses as to how they’d have performed.
