January-February 2015 LSAT Class Results

Here are the results from my class that wrapped up tonight, with 21 students submitting results for both test #1 and test #3. 

Test #1 Class Averages: January 13, 2015 (October 2011 official LSAT) Logic Games: 10.2 correct Logical Reasoning: 28.1 correct Reading Comprehension: 15.0 correct Total Raw Score: 53.3 correct Scaled LSAT Score: 147.8 Scaled LSAT Range: 132-166

Just 18 days later, the class had their final diagnostic:

Test #3 Class Averages: January 31, 2015 (October 2013 official LSAT) Logic Games: 13.1 correct (+2.9) Logical Reasoning: 31.2 correct (+3.1) Reading Comprehension: 16.1 correct (+1.1) Total Raw Score: 60.4 correct (+7.1) Scaled LSAT Score: 152.4 (+4.6) Scaled LSAT Range: 141-165

In 18 days, I'm very happy with this result. Four and a half points on the LSAT is a lot in less than three weeks, and it's even more impressive when you look at the percentiles. Conservatively, the class average moved from the 37th percentile into the 52nd; that's the difference between not getting in and probably getting some scholarship money at some schools. I'd be happy with these results if every class performed like this. (But in practice, many classes do even better.)

I'm particularly proud of the following students:

Biggest Improvement, Scaled LSAT Score: Juliana, from 153 to 164 (+11)

Biggest Improvement, Logic Games: Jaime, from 9 correct to 21 correct (+11)

Biggest Improvement, Logical Reasoning: Carson, from 18 correct to 31 correct (+13)

Biggest Improvement, Reading Comprehension: Jessica, from 12 correct to 20 correct (+8)

I love what I do, and I'm super-grateful for all my students. Through hard work and a lot of good questions, they make my job easy.
