Conversion Tables: Raw Score - Scaled Score - Percentile

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure there are different scales for each different test. I have a book of practice tests and the same raw score results in a different scaled score depending on the test. Therefore, I don't think there is one universal score table, such as the one you posted, that will give you an accurate percentile score.


Hopefully this helps to answer your question.

LSAT scores generally correspond to about the same percentile each test (e.g. 172 is about 99th percentile, 164 is 90th); however, the raw score-LSAT score correlation (often referred to as the "curve") varies from test to test.

The conversion chart you referenced is accurate however it's an amalgamation of all LSAT test scores in the 2007-2010 testing years. The data comes directly from LSAC.

It gives you the best possible approximation but each test will have it's own percentile spread resulting in minor variations (1-2%) from that chart. The only way to get more accurate is with the specific percentile results for your specific test. As far as I'm aware, LSAC doesn't provide these.

    • I learned to embrace the fact that I'm financially independent. I speak loudly about my debt, without shame. My family immigrated here. They worked hard. They somehow found jobs in their profession. They're now saving for retirement, so I didn't want to put the 100 000 burden on them while they're doing that - it's hard enough to retire after only 15-20 working years in a country without having to service law school debt! Yes I'm worried about my debt. But I'm proud of it because I'm investing in my career so I can do some good in the world. I could've taken an entry level consulting gig after my undergrad, but that wasn't what I wanted to do So I turned it down. When my friends tell me about their reading week trip to Morocco in a 5 star resort, I tell them how I managed to fund a 4 day ski trip off of my credit card points plus 100 dollars. And we both share our experiences over a beer. And while it's hard, I also imagine what an amazing life my kids, if I'm lucky enough to have any, will have - and that pushes me to work harder.   Sorry went on a rant there. It's been.. an interesting night.
    • I felt the same alienation when people talked about their (or really, their parents’) cottages, time shares, vacations, hockey season tickets etc. Seemed like everyone had been to Europe (I know not everyone had but so many people talked about it.) Some people even had boats and horses etc. A few had condos bought for them by their parents and people talked about how their parents were paying their tuition. That was also hard to hear. 
    • Is drinking an Olympic sport? 
    • "Be more interesting" is the best advice I've ever received, the best advice I could ever give, and my constant goal in life. You can never be too interesting. 
    • The two aren't mutually exclusive. I've enjoyed all the activities that I planned to do before applying and have met some great people along the way.
