Does the email say the score?

What's this going to be like? Can somebody who has gotten a score before tell me what to expect? It would make my stomach feel less like I'm a character from Alien who's about to have a creature pop through her abdomen... Not even being dramatic.

Email is all text. Subject: Your June 2017 LSAT Score

The email includes your score and percentile rank after a short paragraph saying not to reply blah blah blah

Absolutely love your username! First read that book at 16 and read the full unabridged 3 volume version last year. Still one of my favorite books of all time.

Now if your username isn't a Count of Monte Cristo reference I apologize :lol:

I'd expect that to be solid interview territory - as in the adcomms are going to interview and heavily scrutinize the candidate to figure out wtf went wrong in UG. Like either they were huge slackers (and may or may not have grown out of it), or they cheated on the LSAT (no idea how that would happen), or they have a legitimate reason for the dumpster fire of a GPA

So icons go gray then email then LSAC account updates? Or do the email and LSAC update coincide? Basically asking once the icons go gray should I be nonstop refreshing my email or LSAC account?

I believe the score is first updated on your account, and the email typically comes shortly after.

How many schools interview outside of HYS? I thought most didn't?

I mean just because most don't regularly interview doesn't mean they wouldn't for extenuating circumstances

They'll sometimes ask for additional information explaining your piss poor gpa (per my friend in the 3.3-3.5 zone)

My poor LSAC GPA can be mostly linked to my younger and more vulnerable years, in which I discovered discount drink specials and the limits of my Discover card. After I got a stern talking to from my dad about how another semester where the only class I got an A in was Golf wouldn't be tolerated, and I was given the ultimatum of shaping up or joining the Marines, I made Dean's List every semester afterwards. And if this is incoherent, its because I dipped into my celebratory/conciliatory bourbon.

I fully expect to have to face this in interviews. Getting my puppy eyes ready.

I was just immature, nihilistic, didn't have a sense of direction in life. I don't think my gpa represents me, and it's one of my biggest regrets in life and also why I studied so hard for the LSAT, I'm genuinely embarrassed by it because I've always been a pretty smart guy. I'm turning 27 in September so I've done some serious growing up as well and I feel motivated. And if I have an interview, that's all I can really say to them, I have no excuse.

This idiot I know told me I have no shot at top schools because my undergrad is crap :roll: . This is coming from a pre law major at a marginally better school who thinks the LSAT doesn't matter much and who brags about briefing SCOTUS cases on facebook (I took UG Con Law too buddy, you aren't special). Oh and he's always talking about how Georgetttown is the best.

/end rant.

Currently browning 3 lbs of ground turkey for spaghetti sauce to pass the next 2 hours and to have food if I spiral into a drunken depression for the next 36ish hours...

If someone majors in pre-law it's safe to assume they're pretty insufferable

It is more of a relief than anything to get the score, it is far worse waiting for it!!!!!
