This is the first time I've taken the test. How do the score releases happen? Do they email you when your score is posted? What are the typical times for score releases (afternoon into evening?)?


They send you an email with your score in it. That three digit number just pops out at you, so brace yourself before you open that particular email.

But there will be a flurry of activity here as scores are posted, so you'll likely be able to find out your score before the email. LSAC will post your score in the LSAT portion of your account before they email you. IIRC, for the June administration, scores came out early afternoon until well into the night.

What I don't understand is why LSAC deliberately schedules the test so it misses the deadline. If the test were moved up a week, we'd get scores in time for the March 1 deadline.

This isn't an issue for me as I'm applying for 2012, but just sayin'.


I talked to a lady from LSAC and someone from Illinois (which has a Mar 1) deadline. They don't really care if you appl and not that you have a score coming in. Unless you meant that you would consider applying to some other school based on getting an unexpectedly high score. In which case never mind

This waiting thread is so subdued, perhaps because many of the students have midterms? I miss the June waiting thread, when (neurotic TLSers) + (lots of free time in the summer) = wild waiting.

God, I remember that. When everyone's icons turned gray, I frantically refreshed for about 2 hours. Then about an hour or 2 later I hit refresh randomly without realizing I did it. I was sorry for doing that, that's for sure.

I think it was Notre Dame that sent me an email that said even though their deadline is before the score release date, they still accept it. They put your app on hold or something and then when they get the score they review it.

My score was posted before I got the email (email came like 15 or 20 minutes later). They usually start in the afternoon and keep going into the evening/night.

Okay, I'm having a freakout. One of my LOR hasn't been submitted yet and the professor hasn't emailed me back. I have a teacher from HS that I still speak with and actually babysit her kids. Is that bad if she writes one? She said she would do it tonight even.

A teacher from high school? No. Find a different (college) professor to write you one if anything.

You guys know that as long as you put in that you're taking the Feb LSAT on your app, they'll review it when the scores comes through a couple days later right?

Yeah that's what I was thinking. Just thought I'd get a second opinion.

I've heard worse excuses to drink.


LOL. Is President's Day not enough of a reason to drink?

To be honest I didn't even know it was today, because my school for some reason thinks it's necessary to take Cesar Chavez day off but not President's Day


I lol'd (semi-obnoxiously in the library I might add)

That's terrifying, thanks.


Each of the last two waiting threads were pretty much the live newsfeed for me as we got closer to the release day. It felt like an eternity for my score to get in as reports came out (though it was only a couple of hours later). The second the icons turned gray everyone flooded TLS as demonstrated by the fourth post on this page and onward: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=140867&start=13400

I'm just waiting patiently for my score -- I don't feel any particular anxiety about it and I'm wondering if that makes me a freak.

I'll be on a plane for the first half of March 4th and with my girlfriend after I get off the plane (she has been instructed to confiscate my phone/computer so that I will not ignore her while obsessively checking my email).

I think I'm curious to know what I got, but so resolved to taking in June that these test results aren't make-it-or-break-it for me.

I'm on a plane/at an airport for pretty much all of March 4. So long as I can desist from checking my email at Newark airport (because that might result in me crying on a 15 hour long non-stop flight to India. Very uncomfortable for person sitting next to me, I'm sure).

Though I would also not want to check my score before March 14th, because I am afraid it could ruin my spring break (not that the score is actually going to matter for me!)

I'm concerned about that, too. Do I check it on the 4th and possibly land myself in a funk for the duration of my trip (which not only encompasses visiting my girlfriend but also doing job interviews in the area) or do I hide all access to the internetz for ten days while I try to focus on having a good time and landing a job?

Decisions, decisions.

Hide from your email and LSAC if you can manage it. I don't have the will power to do that.

Even though I feel like I at least got a 160 or higher, I keep having flashes of me opening an email containing a score in the 150s. I have got a couple 157's and I will feel miserable if I end up with a 157 again. On the plus side, I have never felt better about an LG section. Really hoping that a good LG score can help me. If I get a few of my guesses right, I should be in good position to get a 165+. Please LSAT Gods, help me!

I'm considering not taking my laptop to India, but then I will fall behind on schoolwork. /still just use my parents' computer to check my email/LSAC. Whatever, I need to just remind myself that my score does. not. really. matter.

I was doing just fine until I landed back on this thread :p
