A thought on GMAT vs LSAT [#permalink] New post 23 Aug 2010, 18:34
I've been thinking --- it appears that GMAT has been more or less cracked.

I guess at the inception, the average(mean) GMAT score was around 500 with the SD of 100 and 700 back in the days would've put you at the 99th percentile. Nowadays, the average GMAT score is around 540 and I've read somewhere that even a score of 760 won't get you to the 99th percentile.

Contrast that to LSAT. The average(mean) LSAT score still stands around 150 with the SD of 10 and although 170 won't quite get you to the 99th percentile, you get pretty close (I'm attributing that to the negative skewness). One possibility is that LSAC is artificially altering the curve but that seems unlikely given the exam is non-adaptive.

What do people think?

...at the end of the day, this is GMAT Club and this is just a pure thought experiment... :)
