Okay, so using the most recent June tests only as a reference, we can make some deductions about release date.

The last 3 tests have an average release date 22 days post exam - July 4th
The last 6 tests have an average release data 21.6 days post exam - July 3rd/4th

Likely the most relevant June tests to evaluate are those from 2012 and 2013. These exams fell in the 2nd week of the month, and both were accompanied by 25 day process times by LSAC, falling 1 or 2 days after the 4th of July. However, on both occasions LSAC released scores 4 days early and before the Holiday. These June '12 and '13 dates point strongly to a - Mon, July 3 release.

Another trend of the last 13 June exams, 9 of them were released at LEAST 3 days earlier than published. On the two occasions where this was not true, they were all released 2 days early. AKA, no recent June exam has been released exactly 1 day early

Finally, an old but notable data point - even in 2008 with a June 16 test, LSAC released scores prior to the Jul 4 holiday.

My odds for release:
Fri Jun 30 = 7:1
Mon July 3 = 1:2
Tue Jul 4 = 7:2
Wed Jul 5 = 8:1
Thur Jul 6 = 20:1

Not an engineer but I appreciate it. I was too lazy to do that stuff with everything else I'm working but definitely trending I would have done with spare time.

The levels of slightly-mental, unhinged desire for analysis to determine a score release date. I love it. It's essentially what I would do if I wasn't currently worried about the active shooter situation near where I work.

Also, for the record, I agree. Most likely Monday is score release IMO based on the trends.

That being said, we don't actually have any guarantee that past score releases *must* be correlated to future score releases. We all just expect it.

I totally fell down this exact rabbit hole the week before the test. I'm thinking 3rd, too.

Yeah but this is a most strongly supported question, not a flaw question!

I appreciate your input, as a fellow Cascadian; I do think we have a great coffee culture. With that said, Starbucks is appealing because:
a) I get a bunch of $5 gift cards from corporate which I can then put on my phone app account.
b) Did I mention the app? I can order and pick up without a wait or speaking to a human.
c) This is not where I drink coffee. This is where I drink pretty sugar-laden things that make me feel like a hip, young millennial even though I don't know how to Twitter or Instagram.

My fave local coffee is Java. But, if we are being honest, my real fave coffee is cheap, weak, and black diner coffee.

I made the mistake of telling a lawyer I'm acquainted with that I took the LSAT a couple weeks ago. He literally yelled, "So, did you get your score yet?" from a restaurant patio. Would this qualify as justifiable homicide? What about just temporary insanity? Please advise.

Just stopped by to remind everyone that lying about gray day is a ban-worthy offense and will be treated as such

He is trolling me as he knows I am a little stressed, which he then is quick to point out is my future if I follow this dark and terrible path. But from a restaurant patio? The chutzpah!

My biggest pet peeves are:

When people fart in cars.
When people slam my car doors.
When people put their shoes on furniture.
When people say "it could be worse"
Vague LSAT questions/answers.
