This week, LSAC decided to up the late-October spookiness level by releasing scores for the October 2015 LSAT.
I’ll get right to the number that has all of you on the edge of your seats: The curve was -12, meaning that of the 101 scored questions on the test, you needed to get 89 correct for a 170. For a 160, you needed to get 73 or 74 questions correct. For the keenly interested, here’s the score conversion table.
The curve was pretty much smack-dab in the middle, as far as LSAT scoring goes. On various recent iterations of the test, the score required for a 170 has ranged from as low as -9 to as much as -14. Anyone who struggled with that one Logic Game may have been hoping for a more lenient curve this time around, but otherwise, there weren’t too many surprises in terms of scoring.
For those who took the October 2015 LSAT, how did you do? And if you’re now planning on retaking in December, stay tuned to the blog for more studying tips.
