Scores Will Be Mailed Snail Mail? WTF?

Postby bouakedojo » Sat Jun 19, 2010 4:15 pm

Guys,

I just got an email back from an email I sent to LSAC. I have been on vacation for a few days and haven't been able to check my email which killed me. But I am pissed. Stupidly, I asked if there was a chance for scores to come out early. Here's what my response said:

Thank you for your question, Mr. XXXXX. In response to the massive amount of test takers who use the website to check for their scores, in addition to constantly refreshing the page to access it, we have decided that this year we will mail out the scores through the United State Postal Service. The reason for this is because we are only allowed a certain amount of bandwidth from our supplier. While this never has been a problem before, the boost in law school applications has virtually broken the system we have set in place for the last several test administrations. Until we can remedy this, we have decided to change our policy of posting the scores on our website and emailing them. The test taker's results will be sent only through snail mail. An email will be going out next week to notify all test takers of this change.

WTF???? Does this mean they will mail them earlier so we get them on the 3 week time limit? Or will it mean they will mail them after 3 weeks and then when we get them, we get them.

Dude, here's what I'm thinking. They're gonna send out scores early so we get them in the mail right at the time we should have.

I hope....

If he's bullshitting, he was at least thorough - if you google that name, it's clearly an actual person at LSAC.

I liked this flame. Nobody is giving op enough credit for closing up many of the possibilities/doubts.

Well, I'm not a flame, but I'm a big fan of your work A'nold. Plan on following a lot of it when I get to law school.

I've said thank you before to you, but I will say it again. Thanks for all the great advice you've given.

Yeah, LSAC definitely used the term "snail mail" in their email. Give me a break.

"snail mail" seems like a pretty slang term for such an official email correspondence.

Who is this buffoon? This thread is in pretty bad taste and no one is falling for it.

Thank you for your question, Mr. XXXXX. In response to the massive amount of test takers who use the website to check for their scores, in addition to constantly refreshing the page to access it, we have decided that this year we will mail out the scores through the United State Postal Service.

Awesome syntax. Exactly how LSAC writes.

The reason for this is because

see previous comment

we are only allowed a certain amount of bandwidth from our supplier.

please.

While this never has been a problem before, the boost in law school applications has virtually broken the system we have set in place for the last several test administrations.

Virtually? Like, in Cyberland?? Or is it only sort of broken?

Until we can remedy this, we have decided to change our policy of posting the scores on our website and emailing them.

Have you now. Where is the link to the policy online?

The test taker's takers' results


will be sent only through snail mail.

I believe someone addressed this earlier.

An email will be going out next week to notify all test takers of this change.

Or....you're making shit up.

Snail mail would cost way more than extra bandwidth. Don't they offer to snail mail it for a fee? Yeah.

Locked. OP banned until score release. If turns out to be real, I eat my shoes, but I feel pretty confident.
