How Did You Do on the September LSAT?

Yesterday was the last major milestone in the circle of September LSAT prep (naaaaants ingonyama bagithi baba): score release day.

After weeks of anxiety, preppers got to experience just a little bit more — one final gift from LSAC — as scores rolled out painfully slowly, amid reports of crashes on the LSAC website.

Hopefully the wait was worth it.

The September curve came in at -12 (that’s twelve wrong answers for a score of 170), slightly less generous than the previous two LSAT’s, but still more lenient than the historical average. This makes some amount of sense, as most of what we’ve heard suggests a fairly middle of the road exam: no outrageously difficult or surprising sections, but nothing that could be called a cakewalk either.

Were you able to use the curve to your advantage? We want to know! Leave your scores in the comments section or, if you took a Blueprint course, shoot us an e-mail at Your scores and feedback help us improve our future courses!

Now, for any readers staring at their score and cursing LSAC/their test center/various deities…

If you didn’t quite hit your target score, you’re not alone. We’ll have more info for you later this week, as you decide whether or not to try again in December, but to start out with take a look at the video on the right rail, in which Blueprint co-founder Matt Riley talks retakes. I’ll also remind you that the LSAT is an extremely difficult exam and lots of people have to take it more than once. Don’t get down on yourself; use September’s test as motivation for next time, as well as a diagnostic for things you still need to work on.
