June 2010 LSAT Scores and Curve Released


So it looks like the removed question from the June 2010 LSAT was from one of the Logical Reasoning sections.

As to the curve (-12 for a 170, with a removed question to boot), this is about a year and a half now of pretty lenient curves, which could indicate a few different things.

First, people could have just gotten dumber in the last year and a half.
Second, the test itself may have gotten harder in the last year and a half. We know games are making a bit of a comeback.
Third, more people could be taking the test without adequate preparation. With so many people taking the exam to escape a crumbling economic reality, I’d personally roll with choice 3.

What are your thoughts?


After a quick perusal of Top Law Schools, it looks like the curve was -12 for a 170, with one question being removed from the 100 question test. So, in actuality, a -13 curve, which would put this as the second most friendly curve of all time. Which also means this was one of the more difficult LSATs in history.

We’re still getting information on which section the removed question came from. Any information, chime in in the comments section.

UPDATE 12:19 PM:

Looks like scores for the June 2010 LSAT have been released, kids. How is everyone feeling? We’ll have more information on the curve and analysis of what it means as we get more information.

So, with the day about a quarter over (or the work day at least), it looks like we’re going to have to wait another day or three before LSAC deigns to let you know how you did on the June LSAT earlier this month. Why it takes so long to score a scantron and assign percentile ranks, we don’t know (my guess is blind dolphins do the computations with their dorsal fins [I have no idea which fin is dorsal, or if dolphins have dorsal fins]).

<On a scale of waiting pain, it ranks somewhere below waiting for a pregnancy test to come out negative and somewhere above waiting for a table at Chuck E Cheese.

If scores come out today, we’ll update this post, but as for now, we just suggest that you spend the weekend relaxing, taking life as it comes, seeing the sights and smelling the scents.

Or just stare at your Gmail inbox until drops of blood begin to bead down your forehead. Your call.

Anyway, please feel free to comment and let us know how you’re coping with the idea of your law school future becoming exceedingly more clear in the next couple of days. Or let us know if you do receive your score so we don’t look like goofballs for having this post up. The end is extremely nigh.
