Anyone else heard of this or can provide further verification?


What? I don't get this... Or how it would affect our scores?


well if a 160 is now say 85th percentile that would hurt you, since you would have done better than more people for the same number score of 160. However, if 160 changes to 75 percentile that means you will have the same chance at admission (all else being equal) than someone else with a 160 from december even though their 160 before meant that they got a higher score. You see what I'm saying?

To be honest with you, after all the shit I've been through with this damned thing, I'm not overly excited myself. It is what it is at this point.


Matlock, that's EXACTLY how I feel at this this point.

LSAC uses "The Chosen One" to figure out the curves for each administration. I suppose when he dies, they'll have to come up with something new.

Can't take any more negativity in this thread...I'm in a fragile state of mind.

Negativity? Hey, I'd love for the scores to come out tomorrow. But you are just setting yourself up for an additional 24 hours of teeth-grinding, nail-pulling, stomach-churning, lost appetite-causing stress.


FTFY

Am I the only one who has their mail client (or similar) checking for new messages every minute?

Like most of you, I'm impatiently awaiting that email from LSAC. Unlike most of you, I'm impatiently waiting solely because I want to know WHY I'm going to be drunk on Friday. I'll worry about the implications of the score the next day.

Matlock! It is amazing that you can keep things so light in here especially after all that you have gone through with this test! Thanks!

Wish I were. Sorry.

Maybe the next group will arrange a TLS gathering 24/48 hours before anticipated release. If it doesn't come out on time, you just drink longer.

Ah, the good life.

We get our scores tomorrow.
I'm nervous, excited, thrilled, happy, impatient, anxious, curious, and hopeful.

I hope I get my 180.

Well I haven't been anxious at all waiting thus far but it just set in about 5 minutes ago. Ah well it will all be over soon. What's crazy is that I'm only trying to get into some evening part time schools in my area. You guys have a larger burden to carry than I do. :lol:

Also I know most already know about this but for the few that don't...http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_northeast_storm

Is there a vomit emote on this board? :lol:

So close ... Pretty soon I get to find out where I'll be spending the next 3 years.

I can't see any way I score lower than 165, which would improve my previous 159. Outside shot at a 170 if I run the table on the rest of sections and some hurried guessing the LGs come out correct.

Pretty shocked looking at the old Feb score thread. 167 pages.

With all the talk of the number of score administrations up, it seems pretty quiet for us Feb folks.
