Usually management.


So you're saying we should ask for managers when we call in droves on Monday?

Also, purely hypothetically, you think if you kidnapped someone from LSAC and your ransom was scores coming out early, would it help?

For some reason, my account isnt even allowing me to log on. An error message keeps on coming up. Does this mean something? I just want to know how I did.

why would it have a print ticket thing for my september and june tests? but even so, I think its established that the line must have already been there, but somebody's testing center changing is not like a yellow line that isnt a line...

Help get your scores (yes) or get accepted to a school (no).

The fact of the matter is this.

There was an unprecedented, extreme snow blizzard over the east coast area.

People could not come out of there houses, so what makes u think they was coming in to work?

Also there was a power outage and what that mean is that if LSAT had a computer set up to send out scores, it was shut down and wont be on again until someone comes in to fix it. Nobody works at the weekend in LSAC, so using logic, its obvious that the scores will not come earlier than Monday.

"But in the past times they came early!"

Well, in the past times there wasnt no snow storms as bad as this one was. Sure there were snow and all, but it wasnt this bad that the whole country got covered up to their face in snow yo and especially in "Penn", Snow is ultra heavy and they arent as developed as other places so it makes it even more obvious that scores are coming on Monday.

U can bet ur cash on it!

I dont think the snow was that bad where lsac is.

3, it wasnt an unprecedented storm.

I like to think a bit more practically and not assume that there's some master switch that they have to flip that will release our scores. It's most likely a progressive process with many steps and iterations to ensure everything is done correctly the first time around.

Going with the widely held and corroborated belief that this process is computerized and based on the information so far (applications listed as suddenly complete, test centers showing up that weren' there before and possibly the yellow lines) it could mean that the scores are first tied to the LSAC account, schools are then given an update that the score has been tied, all information including test center of each test taker is verified, the release date is moved up (release date change), documents are verified (icon change), and then an e-mail is sent out.

In this way, I believe we're just waiting for a big old computer system to finish doing its security checks and verifications. The snow-related issues (Feb 27th cancellations) may have slowed this down a bit, but I do still believe that it is simply a matter of time and there is no hard release date. The scores are simply released as soon as the computer is done and the absolute maximum time that this will take will result in a March 1st release.

Regarding the power outage theory, as an IT manager myself, I can assure you if a power outage occurred, no matter when, that there would be remote staff assuring that the servers were up and running and whatever processes were going on before the outage were quickly resumed. This would account for a slowdown, but not an altogether stoppage.

Just throwing this out there because it helps me cope a bit knowing that I'm not waiting for some employees to do their busy work or for some other bureaucratic process.

I hadn't thought of it that way, you're right. Maybe even do something extra like get yourself a 181 for good measure, just to show off.

1. I was in New York and Snow was mad bad here. Like the morning of the snow u couldnt open ur door cause snow was like up the windows. Also u couldnt drive ur car unless U spent like 5 hours digging it out cuz all cars buried and all roads are full of snow exept where plow cleaned them which is only in main parts. Mayor Bloomberg said on the radio that this was worst snow in a DECADE, so sure, u can say "There was bad snow 10 years ago so its not unprecedented", but what I mean by unprecedented is recent times.
2. Buildings have generators sure but data can still get lost if all Power goin out and u got snow destroying power lines and electricity.
3. They are developed but nowhere near places like New York where Snow got clean up fast because all roads are paved and its all the city.
4. I dont know what a fob is, so I guess not!

BTW, no need to get mad at me cuz I'm telling the TRUTH.

I think we are classier than that. Let's order them something nice--like Indian food... yummmm....

Actually. I think I'm going to get MYSELF Indian food for lunch. Chicken Tikka Masala, take me away!

thanks for the sanity. I agree. I also think that there arent as many "signs" right now because there werent as many testers on feb 6th. for other administrations you have lotsof people coming on and posting about things changing on their page (like testing centers, etc) but its not going to be at all common because there are so few testers to begin with (add to the fact that many originally registered for the 6th didnt even take it then) so we feel like there are no "signs" but there are a few random ones were just not paying attn to

I'm really not trying to hold up anyone, but the Big K is having a huge sale today. I may be a little late.

Could I suggest some time-killing games to help with the wait?

http://www.addictinggames.com/bricksinspace.html


...I think the following game is the most appropriate:

Also, everyone could use a refresher in punctuation every now and then. Let's learn how to use a semicolon together!

Thanks to everyone for understanding. Remember, patience is a virtue! :wink:

Ya, and have them put in my report I was the first person ever to get to the 100th percentile. They had to use 7 dimensions to have it make sense, but its pretty sweet.

Just a thought, but could it be that they're waiting to release the scores until the make-up exams are administered for those affected by the snow? I can't imagine them releasing scores, answer sheets, etc. if there are people out there that still need to take the exam. Has this happened in the past?
