Ok investigatigators... Don't think I would take the time to forge this email if it wasn't true. I wish it was just a huge April fools joke but like I said before, it was on the news... And when we called LSAC, they knew exactly what we were referring to so here it is:
RE: Law School Admission Test (LSAT)
Dear Test Taker:
I am writing regarding a situation relating to the February 11, 2012 Law School Admission Test administered at Test Center #5715, University of Tampa.
As of this date, the answer sheets and test-related documents from that test center have not arrived at the Law School Admission Council. At this point, we have declared the answer sheets to be lost. To protect the integrity of the scores, we will not score these answer sheets even if they are found.
You will be receiving a full refund of your February LSAT registration fee (this does not apply to fee waivers). In addition, you have the option of taking a make-up test at no additional charge, to be administered on March 10, 2012.
If you choose not to take the make-up test, you may retake the LSAT at no additional charge at any of the scheduled administrations in the 2012-2013 testing year. Submit your request by completing the attached form, then sign it and fax it to 215.***.**** or scan and e-mail it to LSACinfo@LSAC.org
for receipt at LSAC by March 14, 2012, 5:00 pm (ET).
If you wish to take the make-up test, report to the following address no later than 8:30 am on March 10, 2012:
To be admitted to the make-up test, you will need to present this letter, proper identification (see LSAC.org), and the required passport-type photo. An admission ticket will be provided to you at the test center.
If you take the make-up test and then decide to cancel your score, your score-cancellation request must be received at LSAC no later than Sunday, March 11, 2012, 11:59 pm (ET).
If you take the make-up test, a letter will be included with all score reports sent to law schools to which you apply. The letter will explain that the score attributed to the February 2012 test administration was earned at a make-up test given on March 10, 2012. The letter will indicate that you were in no way responsible for the delay of your score report.
If you do not take the make-up test, your file will reflect an LSAC cancellation (+) symbol for the February 2012 LSAT. An LSAC cancellation indicates that you took the February 2012 test but LSAC could not report a valid score for that administration because the answer sheets from that test center were lost in transit. A letter will be included with all reports sent to law schools to which you apply. The letter will indicate that you were in no way responsible for the cancellation of your score due to the loss of the answer sheets.
Only one make-up test is being offered so that we can process the answer sheets and provide scores as quickly as possible. We will include a letter in your law school application file explaining why the score was delayed and making sure that the law schools know that it was through no fault of yours. We expect that the scores will be available less than a week after the published score-release date of March 7, 2012.
Loss of answer sheets in transit is an extremely rare occurrence. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this causes you.
President, Law School Admission Council
