Boo! LSAC Releases Some Spooky October 2015 LSAT Scores

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 Morning Cometh: The October 2011 LSAT Aftermath

Ah, the morning after the LSAT. You’d be excited about the prospect of a day without LSAT prep, if only you didn’t have that hangover keeping you down. So what was the overall feeling? Is it a celebratory hangover, or a hangover of shame?

All in all, it seems as if it was a fairly straightforward, though difficult, LSAT. From most reports, the experimental sections were more difficult than the scored sections, which is nice in the, “Oh thank God that’s not going to factor into my score” way, yet frustrating in the, “Why did they have to shake my confidence with such a hard section” way. There were a few questions that seemed to stick out as being hard, but nothing crazy.

October 2011 LSAT Instant Recap

And just like that, it’s over.

After months of studying, the October 2011 LSAT is in the books (for most of the country). Now all that’s left to do is celebrate — celebrate and discuss.

An early report from the East Coast indicates the exam was pretty par for the course. The games section, in particular, seems to have been pretty straightforward, though very difficult. (Who doesn’t like logic games, right?) Apparently, there was also a reading passage that a large number of students found particularly time-consuming.

We’ll keep you updated as we learn more. Please feel free to add to the discussion in the comments.

The Alarming Number of October 2010 LSAT Takers

Last year, 60,746 test takers sat for the October LSAT, the single largest administration of the LSAT in the history of the test according to Wendy Margolis, Director of Communications for LSAC. Upon hearing the numbers, the legal profession groaned: dire predictions ensued and warnings to pre-law students were issued. Alas, the collective weight of the profession was not enough to dissuade would-be lawyers and June of 2010 constituted the single largest number of June test takers, ever.

Would the October 2010 LSAT continue the alarming trend?

The Morning Cometh: the October 2010 LSAT Aftermath

Another LSAT come and gone.  After spending the last 24 hours talking to students, I have a pretty decent idea of what the test was like.  The verdict?  Not much.  No mauve dinosaurs.  No crazily hard RC passages.  But then again, not particularly easy, either.  It seems that the only thing that really stands out about the October 2010 LSAT is just how conventional it all was.

There were a few interesting developments.  Apparently in the experimental section there was an LR question about Kafka, which is new, because in general the LSAT only has questions about authors I’ve never heard of or actively dislike.  So that’s nice.  There was also a question about W.E.B. Du Bois, an author whose name few people know how to pronounce, I learned.
