Everyone, don't forget to drop the September test in your cart before the scores come out!

I brute forced the last game, too. :o


I actually brute force every game. I found the 7sage method didn't really work for me. I spent too much time trying to set up the perfect board and make inferences. I always tried to "beat" the test takers, if that makes sense. Once I started just setting up a simple board and jumping right into the questions, I improved immensely.


I think I do something similar but rushed the last set up a bit. I hope it turns out okay!

Yeah, I don't really remember what the game was or how I answered it, either. I just remember brute forcing it. It took me a little while, though. I think I got to it with 16 minutes left and the game took me 10-ish.

So do we boycott WUSTL this cycle since their dean failed to release our LSAT scores prior to the 4th. Seems fair to me. All in say aye!

LSAC keeps test registrations in your cart on the website for 24 hours and it holds your spot. That way, you don't have a potential lock out of close or favorable locations tomorrow when people rush to sign up again after seeing their scores.

It feels like my heart is beeping 1,000 bpm inside of my stomach right now. I feel sick just thinking about tomorrow. Why LSAC, why couldn't you just release on Monday....? :cry: This is agonizing torture.

Dean "Testy." What an awesome name for someone leading an organization that administers standardized tests.

Tomorrow is not going to be great.

I have a feeling it'll be Thursday at this point. We'll just go through the heartache again tomorrow.

I've been wondering if the recent reining in of the gap between slated and actual release date was supposed to lead to an eventual only releasing on the slated date.

I'm still angry about the fact that it takes so long. In 2017 it should not take 24 days or whatever to score a test. I don't care. It's annoying, nothing takes that long, plus we need our score to get along with our lives.

Don't you think you should get your score right there like the GRE? Honestly if LSAC wants to live in the Stone Age in 2017 they should at least by now have an unofficial grading schema avail after you take the test so you may have a ballpark of your score. This is done on many different types of tests. I think part of having this process is to deter people from retaking.

Literally cannot fall asleep thinking about gray watch tomorrow/today and if it'll continue to Thursday. Don't want to take a sleeping pill and be groggy for 12 hours...

I was wondering, is it possible to apply ED to more than 1 school? It's maybe stupid, but I could like pick 3 schools, apply ED and as soon as one of them accepts me I could withdraw the other applications, am I wrong? (I probably am, but I wanted to hear why)

I just read Ann Levine's book, and from what I remember, law schools can tell where you've applied-- LSAC provides that information to them. So, theoretically, that's possible, but they're going to see that you don't *really* believe that they're your top pick and will treat your application as such.

Additionally, when you get accepted to schools, if you put down more than one deposit, LSAC provides this information to the law schools you've been accepted to.
