For this administration, I think average days after administration is more accurate. Our scheduled release day is unusually late, probably because LSAC wanted to put it on the other side of the holiday weekend to be safe. For reference, July 7th will be 29 days after our test; the average length of time before scheduled release date is 25.12, and historically ONLY December administrations have had scheduled release days which were more than 4 weeks after the test. The average for non-December administrations is only 23.27. So I think in this case the "days early" average is quite misleading.

are the values statistically significant?


You can't run a regression analysis on a single set of variables.

I need two sets of variables to do a regression analysis (at which point I could tell you things like the P value for the correlation)

Can we do some sort of analysis on whether its usually been closer to the 21 day mark or to the projected date?

I'm at my parent's house for the summer for an internship in my home city, have about 4 friends here, am not yet 21 (late birthday. I'm a rising senior), and only just got hired for a second job. I literally have nothing better to do.

Of 43 tests for which I have data, 25 were closer to the 21 day mark than they were to their scheduled release date. 10 were equidistant from each mark. Only 8 were closer to their scheduled release date than the 21 day mark, and these were mostly December administrations (where the scheduled release period is much longer than 3 weeks).

I really started to re-evaluate how boring my life has been this summer when I had to pick my parents up from dinner the other night because they were too drunk to drive home. That was a tipping point

This is very good to know. Thank you. I have hope.

What's the mean and median of days before projected release

Mathematical concepts mean nothing the LSAC honchos. They aspire to inflict mental anguish that exceeds Dante's 9th circle. Ahhhh
