June-July 2015 LSAT Class Results

Here are the results from my four-week class that wrapped up earlier this month, with 19 students submitting results for both test #1 and test #3. 

Test #1 Class Averages: June 30, 2015 (December 2012 official LSAT) Logic Games: 10.5 correct Logical Reasoning: 26.5 correct Reading Comprehension: 14.3 correct Total Raw Score: 51.3 correct Scaled LSAT Score: 146.5 Scaled LSAT Range: 132-163

Just 19 days later, the class had their final diagnostic:

Test #3 Class Averages: July 19, 2015 (December 2014 official LSAT) Logic Games: 13.6 correct (+3.1) Logical Reasoning: 32.7 correct (+6.2) Reading Comprehension: 16.4 correct (+2.1) Total Raw Score: 62.7 correct (+11.4) Scaled LSAT Score: 153.6 (+7.1) Scaled LSAT Range: 141-163

In 19 days, I'm ecstatic about this result. Seven LSAT points is an incredible improvement in less than three weeks, and it's even more impressive when you look at the percentiles. The class average moved from the 33d percentile into the 60th; that's the difference between not getting in and getting big bucks in scholarships. I couldn't be happier.

I'm particularly proud of the following students:

Biggest Improvement, Scaled LSAT Score: Chelsey, from 134 to 155 (+21)

Biggest Improvement, Logic Games: Joey, from 4 correct to 13 correct(+9)

Biggest Improvement, Logical Reasoning: Chelsey and Ricky, from 18 and 9 correct, respectively, to 34 and 25 correct, respectively (+16)

Biggest Improvement, Reading Comprehension: Chelsey, from 6 correct to 17 correct (+11)

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.

May-June 2015 LSAT Class Results

Here are the results from my four-week class that wrapped up earlier this month, with 14 students submitting results for both test #1 and test #3. 

Test #1 Class Averages: May 12, 2015 (October 2012 official LSAT) Logic Games: 13.8 correct Logical Reasoning: 32.8 correct Reading Comprehension: 17.1 correct Total Raw Score: 63.7 correct Scaled LSAT Score: 153.8 Scaled LSAT Range: 139-169

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

Test #3 Class Averages: May 30, 2015 (September 2014 official LSAT) Logic Games: 14.6 correct (+0.8) Logical Reasoning: 36.0 correct (+3.2) Reading Comprehension: 17.2 correct (+0.1) Total Raw Score: 67.8 correct (+4.1) Scaled LSAT Score: 156.5 (+2.7) Scaled LSAT Range: 149-174

In 18 days, I'm very happy with this result. Nearly three LSAT points 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 60th percentile into the 70th; that's the difference between getting in and getting big bucks in scholarships.

I'm particularly proud of the following students:

Biggest Improvement, Scaled LSAT Score: Farrah, from 139 to 152 (+13)

Biggest Improvement, Logic Games: Linette, from 5 correct to 10 correct(+5)

Biggest Improvement, Logical Reasoning: Farrah, from 18 correct to 37 correct (+19)

Biggest Improvement, Reading Comprehension: Marissa, from 15 correct to 20 correct (+5)

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.

April-May 2015 LSAT Class Results

Here are the results from my four-week class that just wrapped up, with 20 students submitting results for both test #1 and test #3. 

Test #1 Class Averages: April 7, 2015 (June 2012 official LSAT) Logic Games: 11.4 correct Logical Reasoning: 30.8 correct Reading Comprehension: 15.8 correct Total Raw Score: 58.0 correct Scaled LSAT Score: 151.3 Scaled LSAT Range: 129-172

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

Test #3 Class Averages: May 2, 2015 (June 2014 official LSAT) Logic Games: 14.3 correct (+2.9) Logical Reasoning: 31.7 correct (+0.9) Reading Comprehension: 16.3 correct (+0.5) Total Raw Score: 62.3 correct (+4.3) Scaled LSAT Score: 154.2 (+2.9) Scaled LSAT Range: 132-172

This group improved a bit less than many groups do, and I'm not sure why. I'm happy with the logic games improvement, but the verbal improvement fell a little flat. Oh well, the class did improve by three points per person in just over three weeks, so I'm not terribly disappointed.

I'm particularly proud of the following students:

Biggest Improvement, Scaled LSAT Score: Kelsey and Andy, from 146 to 158 and 143 to 155, respectively (+12)

Biggest Improvement, Logic Games: Andy, from 4 to 14 correct (+10)

Biggest Improvement, Logical Reasoning: Kelsey, from 25 correct to 39 correct (+14)

Biggest Improvement, Reading Comprehension: Andrea, from 10 correct to 16 correct (+6)

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.

March-April 2015 LSAT Class Results

Here are the results from my four-week class that wrapped up earlier this month, with 18 students submitting results for both test #1 and test #3. 

Test #1 Class Averages: March 10, 2015 (December 2012 official LSAT) Logic Games: 13.2 correct Logical Reasoning: 29.5 correct Reading Comprehension: 14.5 correct Total Raw Score: 57.2 correct Scaled LSAT Score: 150.0 Scaled LSAT Range: 138-167

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

Test #3 Class Averages: April 2, 2015 (December 2014 official LSAT) Logic Games: 13.6 correct (+0.4) Logical Reasoning: 33.4 correct (+3.9) Reading Comprehension: 17.2 correct (+2.7) Total Raw Score: 64.2 correct (+7.0) Scaled LSAT Score: 154.6 (+4.6) Scaled LSAT Range: 139-170

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 44th percentile into the 60th; that's the difference between not getting in and probably getting some scholarship money at many 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: Matt, from 141 to 152 (+11)

Biggest Improvement, Logic Games: Jess and Srikanth, from 12 and 9 correct to 17 and 14 correct, respectively (+5)

Biggest Improvement, Logical Reasoning: Roger, from 25 correct to 33 correct (+8)

Biggest Improvement, Reading Comprehension: Alissa, from 10 correct to 18 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.

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)

November-December 2014 LSAT Class Results

Here are the results from my class that wrapped up last week, with 22 students submitting results for both test #1 and test #3. 

Test #1 Class Averages: November 4, 2014 (June 2011 official LSAT) Logic Games: 13.2 correct Logical Reasoning: 30.7 correct Reading Comprehension: 14.7 correct Total Raw Score: 58.6 correct Scaled LSAT Score: 150.2 Scaled LSAT Range: 130-170

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

Test #3 Class Averages: November 22, 2014 (June 2013 official LSAT) Logic Games: 14.9 correct (+1.7) Logical Reasoning: 34.5 correct (+3.9) Reading Comprehension: 17.4 correct (+2.7) Total Raw Score: 66.8 correct (+10.3) Scaled LSAT Score: 156.0 (+5.8) Scaled LSAT Range: 140-172

I'm very happy with this result. Six LSAT points in three weeks is great, and it's even more impressive when you look at the percentiles. On average, the class moved past 22 percent of all test-takers. That's the difference between not getting in and getting a full ride. Students should fight for every point they can get on the LSAT.

I'm particularly proud of the following students:

Biggest Improvement, Scaled LSAT Score: Sara, from 134 to 149 (+15)

Biggest Improvement, Logic Games: Sara, from 6 correct to 13 correct (+7)

Biggest Improvement, Logical Reasoning: Fiona, from 20 correct to 35 correct (+15)

Biggest Improvement, Reading Comprehension: Herschel and Dario, from 9 and 8 correct to 17 and 16 correct, respectively (+8)

It's been a great year at Fox LSAT. Thanks to all of my students, for making my job so easy. It rarely feels like work.

October 2014 LSAT Class Results

Fall is a busy time for me, and I've fallen a bit behind in my results reporting. Here's the data from my class that started in October, with 22 students submitting LSAT results for both test #1 and test #3. Here are the results for that group: Test #1 Class Averages: October 7, 2014 (December 2011 official LSAT) Logic Games: 10.5 correct Logical Reasoning: 26.9 correct Reading Comprehension: 13.1 correct Total Raw Score: 50.4 correct Scaled LSAT Score: 146.0 Scaled LSAT Range: 125-164

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

Test #3 Class Averages:  October 25, 2014 (December 2013 official LSAT) Logic Games: 12.2 correct (+1.7) Logical Reasoning: 31.1 correct (+4.2) Reading Comprehension: 16.5 correct (+3.4) Total Raw Score: 59.8 correct (+9.4) Scaled LSAT Score: 152.5 (+6.5) Scaled LSAT Range: 136-169

I'm very happy with this result. 6.5 LSAT points is very impressive when you look at the percentiles. On average, the class moved past 21 percent of all test-takers in just three weeks. Consider the high scorer in the class, a girl named Sera. Sera started with a 153 and finished with a 169. Imagine what her application looks like to the admissions committee at UC Davis Law. Sera's starting 153 would be well below Davis' 25th percentile (161), and she'd be denied admission, almost certainly. But with her 169, she is now comfortably above Davis' 75th percentile (165). With a 169, not only would Sera get in to UC Davis Law, she'd probably get a full ride. Students should fight for every point they can get on the LSAT.

I'm particularly proud of the following students:

Biggest Improvement, Scaled LSAT Score: Lanisha, from 125 to 145 (+20)

Biggest Improvement, Logic Games: Kathia, from 3 correct to 10 correct (+7)

Biggest Improvement, Logical Reasoning: Lanisha, from 7 correct to 24 correct (+17)

Biggest Improvement, Reading Comprehension: Sohrob, from 9 correct to 21 correct (+12)

I also posted the results from my November-December class.

 

August 2014 LSAT Class Results

In my latest class, 25 students submitted LSAT results for both test #1 and test #3.  Here are the results for that group: Test #1 Class Averages: August 5, 2014 (June 2011 official LSAT) Logic Games:  11.7 correct Logical Reasoning:  26.0 correct Reading Comprehension:  13.2 correct Total Raw Score:  50.9 correct Scaled LSAT Score:  146.7 Scaled LSAT Range: 132-162

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

Test #3 Class Averages:  August 23, 2014 (June 2013 official LSAT) Logic Games:  13.3 correct (+1.6) Logical Reasoning:  28.4 correct (+2.4) Reading Comprehension:  14.9 correct (+1.7) Total Raw Score:  56.6 correct (+5.7) Scaled LSAT Score:  151.0 (+4.3) Scaled LSAT Range:  133-166

Overall, I'm pretty happy with this result. Four LSAT points might not sound like a lot, but it's pretty solid when you look at the percentiles. On average, the class moved past 14 percent of all test-takers in just three weeks. Consider the high scorer in the class, a fellow named Tom. Tom started with a 162 and finished with a 166. Imagine what his application looks like to the admissions committee at UC Davis Law. Tom's starting 162 would be below the median (164) at Davis, and not much above the 25th percentile (161). It's uncertain whether Tom would get in with his 162. But with his 166, he is now above Davis' 75th percentile (165). With a 166, not only would Tom get in to UC Davis Law, he'd more than likely be offered a scholarship. Students should fight for every point they can get on the LSAT.

I'm particularly proud of the following students:

Biggest Improvement, Scaled LSAT Score: Peter, from 138 to 158 (+20)

Biggest Improvement, Logic Games: Peter, from 9 correct to 17 correct (+8)

Biggest Improvement, Logical Reasoning: Peter, from 19 correct to 35 correct (+16)

Biggest Improvement, Reading Comprehension: Robert, from 6 correct to 19 correct (+13)

Most of these students are prepping for the September 27 LSAT, so they have four more weeks to study.  I'll report back soon!

April 2014 LSAT class results

For anybody who's interested, I'm going to start posting the test results from my LSAT classes. First, here are the averages for the opening diagnostic: Test #1 Class Averages: April 8, 2014 (June 2011 official LSAT) Logic Games:  12.5 correct Logical Reasoning:  30.0 correct Reading Comprehension:  15.9 correct Total Raw Score:  58.4 correct Scaled LSAT Score:  150.9 Scaled LSAT Range: 135-166

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

Test #3 Class Averages:  April 26, 2014 (June 2013 official LSAT) Logic Games:  13.8 correct (+1.3) Logical Reasoning:  31.9 correct (+1.9) Reading Comprehension:  16.3 correct (+0.4) Total Raw Score:  62.0 correct (+3.6) Scaled LSAT Score:  154.0 (+3.1) Scaled LSAT Range:  134-163

In the long run, my Mid-Length Course average improvement is approximately six points. So overall, this month's average improvement of 3.1 points falls near the bottom of my historical range. Still, I'm pretty happy with three points in just 18 days. (Baby steps go a long way on the LSAT, if you just keep grinding it out.) I'm particularly proud of the following students:

Biggest Improvement, Scaled LSAT Score: Matt, from 150 to 162 (+12) Jack, from 135 to 147 (+12)

Biggest Improvement, Logic Games: Jai, from 9 correct to 14 correct (+5) Jenny, from 12 correct to 17 correct (+5)

Biggest Improvement, Logical Reasoning: Jai, from 23 correct to 35 correct (+12) Jack, from 13 correct to 25 correct (+12)

Many of these students will be continuing on for another month of class, alongside a crop of brand-new students. There are six students in the class who are already over the 160 mark... my bet is that two or more of them will crack 170 in time for the June LSAT. I'll be back in early June with a report on how the new class fared.
