May 2014 LSAT class results

Another class is in the books... here are the results. Test #1 Class Averages: May 6, 2014 (October 2010 official LSAT) Logic Games:  12.7 correct Logical Reasoning:  32.6 correct Reading Comprehension:  16.3 correct Total Raw Score:  61.6 correct Scaled LSAT Score:  152.3 Scaled LSAT Range: 127-165

Just 25 days later, the class had their final diagnostic:

Test #3 Class Averages:  May 31, 2014 (October 2013 official LSAT) Logic Games:  14.4 correct (+1.7) Logical Reasoning:  35.0 correct (+2.4) Reading Comprehension:  17.0 correct (+0.7) Total Raw Score:  66.5 correct (+4.9) Scaled LSAT Score:  155.8 (+3.5) Scaled LSAT Range:  133-170

In the long run, my Mid-Length Course average improvement is approximately six points. So overall, this month's average improvement of 3.5 points falls near the bottom of my historical range. Still, I'm pretty happy with 3.5 points in just 25 days. It's instructive to think about the percentiles. Moving from 152 to 155 might not sound like a lot, but 152 beats 51 percent of all test-takers, while 155 beats 63 percent. So the class, as a whole, significantly improved their law school candidacy even if "three points" doesn't sound like a lot.

I'm particularly proud of the following students:

Biggest Improvement, Scaled LSAT Score: Brittni, from 128 to 146 (+18)

Biggest Improvement, Logic Games: Brittni, from 6 correct to 14 correct (+8)

Biggest Improvement, Logical Reasoning: Brittni, from 11 correct to 25 correct (+14)

Biggest Improvement, Reading Comprehension: Natalie, from 16 correct to 22 correct (+6)

Several of these students had already been studying with me for months, and took the June 9 LSAT.  I'll be back in August with a report on how a brand-new class is faring after one month of prep.
