At this point, I'm beginning to wonder IF I ever even took the LSAT.

History says your friend is wrong.

LSAC nearly always releases around COB EST.

Even if it goes gray at over night, the scores will still be released in batches at random moments tomorrow. That wouldn't be the last minute. Also, your friend is assuming that LSAC has a vested interest to release scores tomorrow. Reality is, they do not. As such, any last second error will simply be met with further delay.

LSAC has considerable market power; a reasonable definition of their market would demonstrate they're a monopoly. Not only that, demand for their good is incredibly inelastic. For at least these reasons, they have very little incentive to improve the quality of their service or keep its price low. If something goes wrong on the day of the release, they'll just delay distribution--and without considerable consequence.

Oh? I wasn't aware you knew him! Judging by your confidence, you must know what you're talking about! Please! Enlighten us.

On a more serious note, I didn't share his remarks as a definitive proclamation, nor did he. Just the opinions of another person who DOES in fact work for a mass testing agency on how things might proceed, considering they aren't exactly proceeding as they have in the past. I also said this person wasn't intimately familiar with this exam agency. To make this abundantly clear, as i'm sure you're having trouble connecting the dots, there's no claim of knowledge made by either myself or my anonymous compatriot. So, and do forgive the repetition, you, sir, have no idea what you're talking about.

You quoted an anonymous source whose reasoning is inconsistent with reality (consider the dates and times at which LSAT scores have been released in the past). Why are you surprised?

Relax people. Everyone's a bit stressed about getting our results back. Just chill out for now and don't bicker over trivial comments like these. Watch a tv show or do homework to kill time. We're almost there.

Except that Law Schools will eventually get sick of LSAC's BS. And they are the ones who approve of this "Monopoly" at the end of the day.

Unclear as to why you capitalized and placed quotes around. Why will they eventually get sick of the BS?

Because it affects their deadlines. Several schools had to push back ED deadlines due to the late October release.

And I capitalized and put quotes around because I felt like it.
