LSAT - Average Score

The score sent to you by the authorities is not the finalized score. The raw score is computed based on how many questions you answered correctly. The LSAT converted score ranges from 120 to 180, from lowest to highest possible score. These scores fall within certain score bands, which show the probability of your proficiency level. These bands are correct about 68 percent of the time.

The percentile rank for your LSAT score shows how many candidates scored below you, based on score distributions for the prior three-year period.

The table below shows U.S. law schools with the highest median LSAT scores, according to U.S. News in June 2013.
