As some of you may recall, I took the LSAT back in mid December. When it was much colder than it is now for some reason. Perhaps I should have taken that as a sign. Anyway, the organization that runs the testing for the LSAT had promised to email the LSAT scores by next Monday. I was checking my email earlier whilst conducting some bidness; and, lo and behold, what greeted my wandering eyes with glee? An email from LSAC telling me my score pretty as you please.
I didn't even have a chance to get all worked up about waiting for the score. It's almost enough to make me feel cheated. Almost, but not quite.
The best score you can get is a 180 which pretty much means you're a genius or an idiot savant. Either way, it's pretty much a guaranteed free pass into law school. They also give you a percentile ranking. That 180 score means you are in the top 1% of all test takers (and probably human beings).
My score was a 151 putting me in the top 48% of test takers. So, I guess that means I'm slightly above average or at least not completely retarded.
As I discussed with The Queen, it wasn't quite what I was hoping for but not altogether disappointing either. It remains to be seen whether or not the score is good enough to keep my track record of once and done admissions testing. I had hoped to have a score of 160 or better which, from my research, is the score that most law schools look for in wet behind the ears college grads. I'm hoping my resume and recommendation letters give me the extra 9 points on credit.
