The 24 hours after receiving your LSAT score can be just as nerve racking as the 24 hours before it; it really is a life changing moment. I would go easy on them and excuse their anxiety; they'll eventually learn that LSN has all the info that they'll need.
It's life changing in the sense that if I eat Chipotle I'm gonna need to poop in an hour is life changing.
You can retake the LSAT but not your 1L grades or your choice of 2L SA (if any).
This is one of the most important tests a lawyer will take in his/her life and the consequences of that simple score have an incredible bearing on one's life. If this is your third time taking it, then it is life changing. If you have to retake, there's a few more months, if not a year if you wait a cycle, that has changed for you. Plus, no matter what they hear from anonymous strangers over the internet, most of them won't retake and will apply with the score they just got. And if you scored above what you expected, it can be life changing as well. I was practice testing around 166-170 and fully expected that I would eventually settle for a score in that range. I predicted that I would score around a 165 my first test. Got a 174. A little better than a Chipotle burrito, as much as I love Chipotle.
cut these kids some slack they just went through a pretty emotionally tumultuous event
Nice humblebrag thrown in there, bro.
