Relax, it's okay guys! We're going to get our test scores soon for sure. And I think most people motivated enough to follow this thread did reasonably well. People who seriously messed up the test bad wouldn't bother checking or commenting on this thread imo. Except maybe those masochists out there, but seriously, how many masochists really go to law school? :P

My icons were non-existent until this morning. See the updated thread for that image.

Teachers call you on snow days? What kind of school do you attend? Mine sends out an automated email? If each teacher were to call each student (21,000), it would take all day.


Teachers call each other, its called a round robin. I am a teacher.

I know this got me a smartass response before, but does anyone know whether law schools get scores before we do? My reason is not that I want to call them up and inquire, etc, but I'm using this LSAT to potentially get off some waitlists and I'm wondering whether they're already aware of the score and evaluating...etc

I thought, "here we go!" Turns out it was a email generated to verify the receipt of a LOR I am not going to use.
The email was sent at 4:35 AM.


I had the same exact thing happen to me when I woke up this morning.

I have never been more optimistic and pessimistic at the same time :lol: .

I'm a 2/20 taker, and our tests may not even be out with the rest of the 2/6 people, so who knows what will happen.

They may be closed, but someone is updating their website; so his premise stands: maybe someone is, in fact, doing SOMETHING at LSAC.

Correct. I was just pointing out that the premise that he seemed to be trying to refute did not need refuting.

Yeah, the new TEST CENTERS CLOSED message is for 2/27 test takers. Someone is there.

Well, hopefully this case will be the same as last time as far as when the scores came out for you, but mine have been green since I signed up.

right now, I'm trying to imagine the server capacity for LSAC... if there were this many people logging in and refreshing pages somewhere else, it'd be like a DDoS

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


You are certainly allowed your opinion, in spite of how ignorant it may be.....

I made this comment based on the assumption that they would be releasing scores today, as I do not believe LSAC is truly incompetent.

Secondly, I make the above assertion based on the fact that LSAC almost always (I don't have the percentage, but I would expect it to be somewhere north of 95%) releases the scores three days in advance of the release date with the exception of a couple that were two days prior and a few that were 4 or 5 days prior. This is a fairly strong strong precedent which supports my (our) expectations. LSAC, with absolute certainty, knows we expect our scores today.

No I went back to sleep after I wrote that and woke up to his/her comment. I think it took me about 30 seconds to compose it :lol:

Define:"my ignorance" as it relates to your above statement. I would really like to see how I'm lacking in knowledge.

Ass-U-Me ~ cliche.

"Strong precedent", yes, very true. "Almost always releases the scores days in advance", again, yes, true. Note though, you yourself admitted there is a chance they may not, "almost always." They don't have to release the scores until their official date, no matter your sense of entitlement. IF they're not released on 3/1, I'll be a bit ticked. Until then, I'm just going to hope they'll release the score and continue through my day.

Sidenote: I know I've been studying for the LSAT for far too long when I look at your response and think of it in terms of an LSAT LR question. (e.g., almost-always, 95%, absolute certainty ... )

Oh, Lord. Now I'm listening to church music in the hope that it will raise my LSAT score. Not even Christian. Someone please save me from myself!

Put on a kippah, paint a red dot on your forehead and hang a pentagon around your neck. Might as well appeal to a number of gods just in case.
