Do you guys really think they will reschedule for this Saturday? Have they ever rescheduled for three weeks after the original test date?

That seems all kind of unfair, particularly for the folks who are currently experiencing blizzard #2. They need to reschedule for next Saturday.

Meh, not really. I took a PT and I'm going to study more later since I have a "snow day" from work, so if it's this Saturday I won't be too upset. (I do, however, think it will end up being next Saturday)

This whole situation is a bunch of horse shit.

I hear it may snow next weekend. I need to meet the March 1st deadline LSAC. Please care about me.

Thanks.

With regard to the UNC Asheville testing site......Since LSAC is conveniently closed today, I've tried to call/email the UNCA professional center to find out if the test will be administered this weekend....no word yet. In other news, why is it everytime I call LSAC their employees seem "mad at the World' ? Anyone ?

update: most schools have a national testing center you can call and see if there is one scheduled for your school..i called mine and the lady was pretty sure there was nothing here this weekend..so that eases my mind a lil but i still want to call me lsac and confirm that

In fairness to LSAC, it's "conveniently closed" because they're in Philly and they're getting 20 inches of snow. They're people too and their safety is not worth 24 hours of student inconvenience.

Also, they are most likely "mad at the world" because they have answered thousands of calls like yours. They're likely just as frustrated as you are - they are in no position to dictate to these schools and centers whether they will hold a test or not. If the school can accomodate them, they will, but LSAC is waiting, just like you.

Again, the main point of this thread - take June and October if you need two tests. Relying on December and February is a big gamble.

I took the December test and remember that some test center(s) was/were cancelled for the originally scheduled date of Dec. 5th. The scores were released to all on Dec 28th.(including the LSAC office being closed for christmas) My question is does anyone know how long after the original was the retake scheduled? Just trying to see how long it took to get those scored

I think 2 weeks from the original test date. Granted they only had to score a few test centers as oppose to all the test centers that closed last weekend. I think LSAC's problems also lays in the fact that they are unable to get any updates from alot of schools that were hit last weekend with the snow on their availability.

I know for the most part, schools have been closed since last friday in the DC area. So LSAC cant exactly get a date down if they dont know when the schools will be able to accommodate them. Again this is just what I "think" and not necessarily know for sure. I imagine them administering tests over the next 3 weeks will allow them to release scores on time as they wouldnt have a massive influx of tests that will come in all at once.

Good luck to all

Re: UNC Asheville Make-Up Test

Yes, we submitted 2/27 to LSAC as the makeup date.
The reporting address will be a different building, but LSAC should contact you when they reopen. Unfortunately, we do not have the contact info for those scheduled to take the test and also don't have the authority to make decisions regarding it, we only administer it.

I'm sorry you are having trouble getting the info. and I realize it is a very important test for those who are taking it. Hopefully, LSAC will reopen soon and be able to answer questions.

See you soon-
Nancy

So I wonder what this is going to do to the release of the test that was administered on 2/6 as scheduled? This could be tricky...do they hold everyone's score (the release date is "approximate"), or do they release them as scheduled and score the postponed test as they come in? There is countless scenarios and I haven't a clue what happens???

A 2/27 test date would give those test takers until Friday 5th March to cancel their scores.

Presumably if folk test on that date, scores could not be released before then?

For any1 interested, I called my testing center in Brooklyn, NY and the woman there said that the LSAC requested 2/27 as the make-up date !!! I have no comments, I am in shock.

This is soo not cool. Why won't lsac tell us anything?? If the lsat was reschedule on 2/27 at one test center, will they try to administer the test on that date at the other test centers too? Arghh.

I'm wondering whether they reschedule the test by state? Btw, Hampton University's makeup date is 2/20.
The weather isn't anyone's fault obviously, but it's still frustrating because most of the testing centers are closed, and LSAC is as well. Hoping LSAC will open/send us a letter tomorrow so at least we'll have some info before this weekend.

Yeah just want to get this darn test over with. Would rather not have to wait until October to take it again.
If anyone thinks it's nice having the makeup test, it's really not. An extra two weeks to study isn't worth the stress/worry/uncertainty/ruined plans.

Wow, not having a make-up test date is lame. I timed my PT's and study to peak at test day, and did every test so I'd have nothing left undone. 2-3 weeks more puts you at a disadvantage.

February is late for fall 2010, and this is not helping. Dang, it's cruel.

I think you exaggerate. There's over 200 individual games and RC articles plus over 5,000 LR questions. You can find stuff to go over, even if you've done it before.
