Schools can see your score without you sending it?

I got an email from a LS (arizona summit I think?) congratulating me on my score, and the email contained my score. I thought schools can only see your score when you send it to them during the application process? If not do all schools look at scores before you apply?

If you signed up for LSAC's Credential Referral something-something, then schools get notified about your score for publicity purposes. This isn't entirely a bad thing; a number of schools will offer fee waivers based on LSAT scores through this system.

They'll see all your scores when you apply anyway, so you can only benefit from fee waivers. No real downside other than getting spammed by schools

If you apply, they will see it. If you don't apply, they may search for it in a CRS search anyway. They get a good deal of data on you, actually, once you apply.
