river-stones-series-1-812652-mI recently had a great conversation with a prospective law student and LSAT test-taker. Since many of his questions are relevant to so many of you, I thought I’d share some of our conversation.

How does your LSAT score stack up?

My awesome student Mike made this visualization of LSAT scores by percentile, using the past 11 years of scoring scale data. Check it out!

Screen Shot 2014-06-18 at 9.45.48 AM - Version 2

Some quick highlights from the past three years:
140 = 13.4th percentile
150 = 44.4th percentile
160 = 80.3rd percentile
170=97.4th percentile

I find these percentiles very helpful for perspective. The LSAT scale is constricted, since it only goes from 120 to 180. This means that every single point counts, and should be celebrated! If you can go from 140 to 150, you move past a whopping 31 percent of the field.  If you go from 150 to 160, you blow past another 36 percent of your competitors. I see these improvements all the time… people can, and do, put themselves in an entirely different LSAT stratosphere through hard work and practice.

June 2014 LSAT deadlines

Yesterday (May 6) was the regular registration deadline for the June 2014 LSAT, but it’s still not too late if you want to take a shot at that test:  the late registration deadline is May 16. That’s also the deadline for withdrawing from the test with a partial refund, but I don’t know why anybody would do that… changing to a future test date would seem to make more sense.  Here’s a list of the most important dates:

Late Registration Deadline:  May 16
Test Center Change:  May 18
Test Date Change:  May 25
Withdrawal Deadline (no refund): June 8
June 2014 LSAT:  June 9
Scores Released by Email: July 7

If you’re already registered, but you’re not sure whether you’ll be ready in time, note that you can always WD on the night before the test.  You won’t get a refund, but it won’t count as one of your three attempts.

Don’t take my word for it on any of these deadlines… make sure you double-check on the LSAC website. And please call or email any time you have questions.
