Waiting for December LSAT scores

Postby Irvine2000 » Wed Dec 18, 2013 9:00 pm

Does anyone else think its criminal making us wait a month to get our scores back? Its a scantron, how long can it take to process these?

I know they have to figure out the distribution for percentiles, but even that is probably done by computer.

Anyone else feel the same?

No, I like to think that most people seeking law school are mature and experienced enough in life to realize scoring 10,000-30,000+ LSATs administered all over the world is not as simple as just walking a stack of scantrons down the hall to a scanner machine to score tests and get grades out quickly to make impatient students happy like UG professors can do with tests for the small groups of students in their classes.

GRE and GMAT have made it even more simple than your scenario

:|
The GMAT and GRE recycle questions and are computerized. They are objectively worse tests than the process used on the LSAT. You can't release scores until every loose end is tied up, makeup tests are issues, irregularities are resolved, cheaters are caught etc. Percentiles aren't even calculated based on the test you take, they are based on a 5 year average, and can change after score release. Every year this comes up, and its dumb...
