UVA: Jan 7

and Columbia, NYU, and Chicago all replied to me today.

Make of that what you will.

Thank you!
I wish I had a kappycaft1 graph to compare these dates to the 3 year historical trend. I'm getting spoiled.

I hope this doesn't mean that we won't hear anything from Stanford until the 7th. It's weird enough that no one heard anything in December. I'm hoping for at least a new admissions blog post so I can stop wondering when decisions will come out.

December LSAT scores were released today to the tune of a -12 curve. Make of that what you will.

Source: check the LSAT Board's Dec. Waiting Thread. It's pure comedy for those of us who aren't waiting, and pure torture for those poor souls who are. We've all been there before. The curve is also explained on page 1 of that thread.

Curve is fair, not a ridiculous -14 or something. The bigger news coming out of Dec. is that registrations were down ~15 percent over last December (per the LSAC newsletter released a couple of weeks ago). Schools should (in theory) start moving next week as Dec. apps roll in.

Source? Oct #s didn't come out for a while after scores were released so I don't believe

Can't link from phone but look at LSAC > Resources > Newsletters and check out the most recent newsletter. You're correct that they haven't released a final number yet.

Page three has the article about the decline in LSAT registrations.
