The LSAT really just needs to be a computer based test so the results would come out in a few days or a week.

Naw - I never get to write in cursive. I relish the opportunity to show off my flow.

Unless they get rid of logic games, I just don't see how this is feasible.

If you just assume LSAC lied then you can get the suspense back. It's easy if you (dis)believe!

Banal is a triggering waiter word.

I almost did my thesis on Arendt's Banality of Evil, but then I realized that I just liked the concept and didn't have anything original to say.

Baseless speculation of the day:

December takers requesting a refund on February registration must request by 1/10.
Official mailed score release date is 1/11.
Therefore, LSAC will release scores via mail by 1/9 to allow time to request a refund.

The email release date is one week before the mailed score release date.
Therefore, unless LSAC expedites mailing scores to non-online users, emailed scores will be released by January 2.

A: With each passing minute, the discussion grew increasingly circular. After another twenty minutes of the same banal points being repeated ad nauseam, I interrupted the meeting’s monotony by calling for a vote to truncate discussion so that we could finally decide on the budget.

Ty!


I like B better. But I would make some changes to it:

As time went on, the discussion grew increasingly circular. After another twenty minutes, I interrupted the meeting and called for a vote so we could finally decide on the budget.

Basically, I deleted excess words.

I prefer this version as well. I think the other versions have a few too many words that, while not insanely out there, give the sentence a bit of a thesaurus-y tone.

Been lurking this thread for a while, I think it's about time I posted.

PM me if you're up to swap personal statements.

I know they won't come out until next week (I'm hoping for Monday as it usually comes early), but I can't stop checking my email. Thanks holidays for making us wait a week longer than everyone else :(

Is this your first take? I was exactly like this in September, I didn't sleep/eat for 3 weeks. This time, I honestly am very chill about it (and that's only a partial lie)

Yep, first take...translation: I'm a nervous wreck who keeps flipping between thinking I got anywhere from a 160-173. Ahh! I graduated in May after changing my mind about what I wanted to do with my life, so I didn't fully commit to law school until September. Waiting for my score while watching people already getting their acceptances is a serious struggle

All I'm saying is last time they released in December the predicted release day was January 4....

If i were the LSAC employee charged with deciding the exact date for sure releases, I think I'd get a huge trip about thinking of the effect of my decisions on the vacations) holidays of literally tens of thousands of people.

Haha the flipping between a 160 and 171+ stays the same on the second take too. I'm in the same boat. Waiting to submit my application for a few schools until I have my score; seeing other get accepted when I'm so close is killing me.
