They give international students a different test.

Well, it's not "international students," it's people who take the test overseas (I'm American but I took the test in Asia). The proctor also gave the instructions in the local language (not official LSAT instructions, but the other ones like "put down your pencils," or maybe that's an official one, I don't recall)...

You also don't get a full score report, so you don't know which questions you missed or how you did in each section. No idea why, I thought that was pretty dumb.

Haha okay, discussions of "international students" vs "students who take the test internationally" aside, they give a different test bc someone could hypothetically give you the questions after taking it themselves, which would give you a decided advantage. Also, the LSAT is standardized, so your score (with the curve) should be the same regardless of what test you get.

I get the reason for a different test, but why wouldn't they release the score report 3 weeks later?

I'd also imagine the score distribution would be different for people taking the test overseas (I'm sure they have a way to calibrate results though). I wouldn't imagine as many really low scores, since people contemplating moving a few thousand miles for school would likely take the entrance exam pretty seriously, but non-native English speakers (who constitute a higher percentage of test-takers overseas) would probably find it difficult to really crush the test.
