Your odds dont make any sense. You at minimum have them written backwards. If that is the case, though, you would be offering 2:1 odds on Monday which is just juicy.


Touché...only a seasoned gambler would use the term " juicy" to describe odds... That said, you better get that gambling habit under control! Lol


I used to be a professional poker player and I can confirm this statement.


Poker players generally refer to ratios in odds for instead of odds against (pot odds/implied odds/that sort of junk), right? Just curious.

It's ratios for and against for the most part. I could explain some in greater detail if you'd like.

Apparently, all of us are so anxious, our nerves writhing, for the certain highs ( or lows) that will most certainly materialize at some unknow future date, that we are arguing whether a semi colon is indicative of " to" or " in"

Cheers!


That's just standard gambling parlance. There's really no debate.

2:1 in gambling means that you are getting two dollars for every dollar you bet.

I'm counting on a Friday/Saturday release for the following reasons:)

1) They don't like to get bombarded with calls after the release.

2) The weekend gives people time to get accustomed to their score, thus reducing the inbound call volume.


LSAC, are you listening?

I'm interested to see what you ended up with. Your posts have been quite unique.

No way there's going to be a Saturday release.

I back this theory up, since 2005 every Feb test was released either Friday or Saturday.

http://lsatblog.blogspot.com/2011/02/fe ... dates.html

And 2011 is Friday too. So I am almost sure we will see the result on this Friday.

Right, but as you can see, this is the first February test scheduled to be released on a Wednesday. All the ones you referenced were Monday releases. So they're sort of irrelevant...

That is due to the snowstorm that year, the LSAC east coast office was closed on Friday.

21 days (Saturday) is about average, but I think we're looking good for a day early because I'm guessing the total # of test takers was down.

Wouldn't that page with the amount of test takers have updated by now if we were going to see a Friday release?

Is there a normal progression with that page? Like it is updated four days before release or something? If not, I don't see why that would mean scores aren't coming out Friday. It would make sense to me if they just released all the data from the test more or less at once.

For those who don't know what we are talking about it's this page

I feel like that's what someone implied but I may be incorrect
