i made sure EVERYTHING was in on time... the least they could do is uphold their end of the bargain.
Their end of the bargain is about 4 weeks usually. There is no reason you should expect a test taken in December to come out before the end of the month. It takes 4+ weeks under the best circumstances, but with increased postal loads of the holidays and closures for those same holidays you should expect it to take no less than 4 weeks, likely closer to 5. You delayed, that sucks but is far from LSAC's fault. If you had looked at last years you would have known it came after Jan 1.
right. i graduate college in 3 years and i should have studied and taken the LSAT after my second year. please.
the LSAC as well as most law schools claim that the December test is a safe test to take for that cycle. if that wasn't the case they shouldn't make that claim, period. 3 weeks is a perfectly reasonable time to run a scantron in....
they can run every election ballet in 1 day but it takes the LSAC a MONTH to grade a few LSATS? ok.
It is perfectly safe for the cycle, just not for the specific scholarship to which you are applying, I don't know of any school that stops taking applications before New Years.
A basic check of when the most recent December LSAT scores came out, and the deadlines for your scholarships would have let you know that it was going to be very very close. Maybe before New Years maybe not.
If you were dead set on applying this cycle for that scholarship there was a test in October you could have taken. Whether it SHOULD take so long to grade the LSATs is irrelevant. That is how long they have traditionally taken, and that information is available to anyone who wants to access it. Complaining that they are screwing you or somehow deceived you shows a lack of basic research on your part.
