If its preprogrammed, then great. Otherwise I guess were waiting till monday



Well we do have the opportunity to test a theory. If the LSAC releases the scores on Friday evening because they want their staff to be home and not field phone calls then it stands to reason we could get the scores early today. I know we probably don't have enough information or understanding of how scores are released but it's a possibility if all someone has to do is "flip a switch".

Unless the emails are already set to go out at X:XX time.



There are any number of things the release order could be based on. The time you signed up, last name, ssn.

Just a thought.

Location? I feel like in the past, a lot of people were saying what test center they were at and such.

So, LSAC are closed per their phone message. Perhaps the 'Skeleton Staff' who worked in December made it in to work?

This is gay, there is no reason it should take so long to get a score on a multiple choice test!

The promised release date is, and has always been, 1st March. Anything else is a bonus.

If you're waiting for your score to decide where to apply, just get everything ready over the weekend. Even if your score arrives late on Monday night, you just need to get out your credit card and send the pre-completed apps.

With their prior knowledge of this storm, I will view LSAC as incompetent if they did not somehow previously arrange for a score release today.

Although, New Orleans had significant prior knowledge of Katrina..........

Yes, I know, I am aware of this. I'm not griping specifically about not getting scores early; I'm griping more about how these standardized testing companies can get away with charging huge fees for their "services" when their services take so long.

I am going to continue to be optimistic and think that they know that with the storm, Monday may still present a problem with them getting to work. Hopefully they did whatever needed to be done in order to get the scores out today

How about I view you as incompetent? You read the test packet, you knew the scores would officially be released on March 1.

Not to scare everyone, but you realize LSAT scores are curved. Everyone in this forum seems to believe they'll score 165+. According to my math, 80% of us will score below a 162. Do we really want to know our scores???

Unless the demographic of LSAT takers who respond to this forum ARE the top 20%?

this forum is not a representative sample of test takers. the people on tls, and especially those posting here, are super neurotic overachievers.

This assumes that TLS is a representative sample of all LSAT takers.
