I guess Georgetown has just decided to be hardcore? Why would they not cancel as well?

Georgetown is the least accessible part of Washington, DC. I wonder how many people will show up to test?

Georgetown isn't shutting down because of the NCAA Men's game. I think even though they play at the V Center, they would still have to cancel the game if the University closes. They don't want to refund 20,000 tickets. As a Syracuse fan, this makes me hate them even more. This is so unfair to the people registered at Georgetown. There are already 16 inches of snow outside of my apartment, and METRO has suspended all bus service.... since Georgetown doesn't have a metro, it doesn't leave a lot of options.

I hope Villanova kills them.

I talked to Georgetown's campus police about 20 min ago -- they said over 2 feet of snow up there.. things arent really plowed and they are giving out a fax number to send a letter into LSAC because it isnt safe to get up there.

What is the number for Georgetown? I definitely will not be able to make it. This proctor is putting people in danger. The LSAT is already an experience for some individuals, and then to make people actually walk through this storm since the metro is closed or many don't have 4X4s. Pull your head out! :evil:

The campus police number for Georgetown is 202-687-4343.

I went outside after I called them and there is no way I can drive there - cabs and public transportation have been eliminated as well due to the blizzard. There is so much snow out there to the point that when I walk I can't touch the ground. Georgetown is nuts and if they are doing this because of a basketball game I will be really upset.

Snow.

One of the many reasons banking on a February LSAT is unwise.

My center is closed as well, I can't even get out of my own house, but Lsat hasn't added it to the official list of closed centers. I called LSAT informing them that it is closed but they seem disinterested in the fact that Maryland/D.C. is facing one of the worst snowstorms in recorded history.

This whole situation is ridiculous. LSAC is completely oblivious to the plight of so many test takers...I guess in times of emergency they really show their true colors.

This brings up a really great point. I, for one, was completely depending on this score, as my December score was incredibly low. Now I am considering this as a sign that I might need to wait until June... I have not submitted my apps (was planning on completing them by tomorrow.) Will my LSAC account get all screwed up if I just wait until next cycle? Also, my main concern is my letters of recommendation. Are they still valid for the next cycle or do I have to request another letter? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

In regards to the LOR's, they should be fine. I submitted mines a good 10 months before I applied.

megd I wouldn't worry too much about it. If you are prepared already just take the makeup test. It is already the end of the cycle and from what I understand even though we are taking a makeup the day the score is released will not change.

LSAC have plenty of tests they can use. February tests from previous years can be reused - they're non disclosed, as can the Saturday sabbath tests. I think international tests are different too, and also non disclosed. There may even be multiple international tests to allow for time differences between the antipodes.

There are different international tests by region. The Saturday tests are also different. I'd be highly surprised if you got the same test as the people who already took it.

It appears that everywhere (at least from my first glance) that was canceled on Saturday is also canceled for the Monday test.

Perhaps they'll use the Monday test as the make up one? It seems strange to have canceled at all the same locations, especially since many are listed as open for tomorrow.

Good catch! I'd bet we all get that Monday test. I also wonder if this means they're going to do the make up in two weeks since next week is President's Day weekend and I can't imagine they'd have a Monday test on the 15th. I'm going to call LSAC later today and see if I can find out when the snow day test will be.

Wow, so LSAC just updated the site again. Apparently only:

* Center 1405 - Montgomery College-Rockville Campus, Rockville, MD

is closed for today. So, since last night, their site told lots of folk testing today that the center was closed. Now it looks like that might not be the case after all.
