M, Founder of TestSherpa Free LSAT Prep

Ha! My very biased opinion (disclosure: I authored a book on LSAT prep) is that the LSAT has become a measure of a law school candidate's success by pure evolutionary chance. The only section that law schools specifically asked for was the writing sample. That said, there is a pretty high correlation (R2>0.7) for LSAT scores and success in law school.

Perhaps success on the LSAT would also correlate to success in nearly any field since it measures critical reasoning abilities, but of course, no one has cared to study that.

Great blog, btw.
