it was one of the most recent ones when I searched "lsat" on twitter


Glad I'm not the only one desperately hoping there will be some twitter buzz about the release


When I searched LSAT my own page popped up like halfway down haha no one is saying anything useful about it


in that case I accidentally stumbled upon your twitter


Probably not

False. I think they'll be out today.
Plus, I think that since it's a Monday, it would not be at all unusual for the release to come late in the day.

What is the latest score release time in the day according to history? Like 9pm?

I agree that they could come out today--even later in the day. However, I find it a little unlikely that scores will be released 9 days before the scheduled release date. In modern LSAT history, June LSAT scores haven't come out even close to that early.

friend we have already had the "do we think the days before projected or days after administration is more accurate" debate and we decided days after administration


On what grounds??

heres a copy past for the reasoning: The idea has been floating around ITT that the expected wait is longer due to the placement of the weekend. They're closed on Friday, meaning they couldn't have made the expected release date the 3rd, 4th, or 5th. Forced to make the decision between before the weekend and after the weekend, I think they put the expected day after the weekend to err on the side of caution. Releasing a score after the expected date is a big embarrassment for them, so they want to avoid it at all costs by pushing back the date. Usually they only do this by a few days, but the weekend forced them to push it back a lot more days

In modern history have they come out much longer than 21 days after the test?


But that's my point. We have two equally valid yet competing bases for making a conclusion. Because of this, you can't really make a conclusion.

except we are 8 and not 9 days away! Odds that much more likely combined with the 21 day historical trend

I don't understand why LSAC says the scores will be released 3 weeks after the test. Today would be 3 weeks. The release date is 4....

That doesn't answer my question of...why the 7th and not the 6th?

Today feels a lot like how I would imagine the Who's to have felt when they woke up excited for Christmas and found out it was all gone

I don't think they would want the release to be on the Monday following a holiday. It gives them that Monday to catch up if need be.
