Last time it came out around 10 a.m. on Saturday (Pacific time), but I gather that when it comes out during the week it's usually in an afternoon.

It's the final countdown!

... sorry about that, it couldn't be helped... ;D

I think I'd prefer to get it later on Friday night. Maybe around 9 or 10. I could get home from school, maybe hit the gym, shower, make a nice dinner, then sit down with you good people and wait for the magic moment. Are you listening LSAC? Make it happen like that.

There was actually a sign that it would happen on Friday--the pages on the LSAC web site changed a little bit to incorporate a new date, which in other cases always directly preceded the scores being posted. This happened around 11 am on Friday (again, Pacific time), so for the rest of the day I checked every ten minutes or so, until almost midnight. That was a bad Friday.

At least I had this board to lurk on ;)

I've actually been revisiting past threads where people were waiting for their scores, such as this past June test, just to see what can be expected..

I remember reading back in June that when you were about to get your score, something on your LSAC status thing would change - a box would be filled in with some words.  Does anyone remember what that's all about?

That was the sign that I mentioned. If you look on your LSAC account page in the LSAT section, you'll see three columns: one with the information about the score report (about five items, all saying "cannot be displayed" at the moment), then one headed "Description", and finally a blank box under "Update"--the box being filled refers to the "Update" box being filled with a date.

The date in June that it was filled with was 7/2/07 (the scheduled day for the scores to be released), even though the update happened on Friday, June 29th. I guess in all other cases this preceded the scores being released very closely, however in June they didn't get released until the next day.

I hope this helps!

Greaaaat. You had to tell me that, didn't you?  Now I'll be checking that box 3 times a day even though I know there is no way we're getting our score this early.  It's going to be a loooong 10 days.

Since the LSAT, I keep having dreams in which all of my teeth are knocked out in a manner befitting Wild E. Coyote, i.e., I am laughing about something, then get struck in the mouth by a ball peen hammer, remain stunned for several seconds, after which my teeth crack like a mirror and crumble out of my mouth. I wake up in the morning grinding my teeth.

It also happened after the June test. 

Hopefully I will be left with something more than exposed nerve endings come October 19th.

Anyone else having dreams since taking the test that are not directly related to getting a bad score, but are scaring the bejeezus out of you anyway?

Right.  That is the official date.  The 19th is just speculation based on the fact that for most of the previous tests they have been a few days early.

The email came on June 30th at 9:37am Pacific Time. I remember waking up at 6:00am and checking because I was restless and not seeing anything. I went back to sleep and had a nightmare about my score being in the 160s, woke up immediately and checked. I got a 165.

Dreams can be very real.

A couple of nights ago I dreamed about a score predicting thread on this board.  Some genius member came up with a formula for accurately predicting your score based on three factors: GPA, SAT, and the "tea" reaction.  In my dream, I was trying to figure out what the tea reaction was, googling it and such (no such thing in reality, to my knowledge).  Apparently, google said that how your body reacts to caffeine can be put into a percentile - which is somehow relevant to your LSAT score... I woke up confused.  Strange dream, probably will have a couple more in the next week.

People mentioned the box on the LSAC website that updates to tell you that your LSAT score is available. But someone told me that when they send you the email, they give you the score directly so it's the first thing you see when you open it up. Like "Dear _____, Your LSAT score is ____." BAM!

Anyone know if that's true? Because I'm going to have to totally prepare when I open that email. I don't want to open the email thinking oooh, I get to click on a link to see my score!

This is really awful...

I keep running doomsday scenarios through my head, even though there is absolutely no reason to do so.

What if I transfered a whole game to my scantron card incorrectly?

What if I knew the right answers on RC but bubbled in the wrong letters because I was nervous?

What if I totally bombed a game because I misunderstood a rule?

What if all of the above-mentioned sloppiness contributes to my getting a -10 or something on the test?

What if all the work was for naught?

What if I get buried by a mudslide prior to getting my score back?

What if I get a great score but then wake up because it was only a dream?

Wow, I've been thinking exactly the same things as you. Especially bombing a game because I missed a rule or forgot to make an inference. Thinking about the game rules that are written, I always freak about possibly missing an unwritten inference based off of those rules. I'm going insane thinking about my performance on the games.

My long weekend getaway to Eureka Springs, AR, is now over, sigh. It was a lovely way to stop worrying.

When I left the test, I felt ok. I didn't feel like I blew it. I'm pretty sure I nailed the games since I finished them all and even had time to go back over a couple on the last game. I think RC will either be my downfall or my triumph.

I spent the weekend dancing to hippie music and drinking margaritas and going to dive bars. It was a great break from the paranoia. Everything except the hippie music (I have no excuse for this other than stress-induced delirium) is pretty standard behavior, or was before I spent the summer holed up in my house studying for this gd test.


Trying to retain some anonymity, but it's a ttt private school.  Do you think I'm lying or something?  :D

No, sorry.   :D  Excuse any noisiness.

Out of curiosity, has anyone experienced any atavism while waiting for the test results?  Oddly enough, I'm returning to my teenage self because doing anything of intellectual value deprives me of the nonsense mentality I need to block out worries.  I'm going out to eat junk food late at night, watching football, and cranking American Beauty-era Grateful Dead.

There's nothing wrong with those habits, but I thought I ditched them somewhere along the road.

Am I the only one NOT looking forward to Friday?  ???

You must have missed my post from yesterday.  The only reason I'm looking forward to it is that I'll now actually commit to studying for December, rather than allowing the slimmest degree of hope for a 165 to get in the way.

Sigh.

The thought of opening that e-mail is horrifying to me.  I plan on just staring at it in my inbox for as long as possible.

Just when I have a wonderful PS idea and it's finally starting to flow, I can imagine it all come crashing down on Friday when I get a horrible score and it won't matter how great my PS is.  :'(

The poops mean you made it wrong.  That not only wastes your ingredients but it can take up space on the conveyor belt which might slow you down if you have to wait for it to pass. 

Geez...that game is so addictive!

Has anyone actually had a panic attack, like a real panic attack worrying about the LSAT? I had gone my entire life without getting one until recently. So much anxiety has built up in me since taking the LSAT and anticipating my score. I was sitting in a movie the other night and I was still thinking about my LSAT score and my heart started to beat super fast and then I couldn't breathe and I felt like I was going to have a heart attack. Then on another night I was working out (something that is supposed to combat anxiety) and I felt like I was getting a panic attack because I was thinking about my score. The LSAC really likes to mentally torture us.

The LSAC really likes to mentally torture us.

The last sentence doesn't follow from the premises.  It could be the test-writers (usually professors that work as free-agents for LSAC) that like to torture us.

At my alma mater, a philosophy professor worked part-time on LSAT questions.  His philosophical interests?  Frege and Number Theory.

Well, the last sentence could follow from the premises, when I said they like to torture us, I meant by not releasing our score sooner than later. The premises stated I have this constant worry about my score. If I had it sooner, I wouldn't have as much anxiety. It is the LSAC that has the power over releasing the scores. Because of that, I have anxiety, which leads to panic attacks. But nice try picking apart the argument LSAT style.

This is the answer to your question.  What's the point in making us wait two more days?  Just release the damn scores today. 

There's an obvious necessary assumption here.  They have the scores.

But, if they do, I can agree with you.

Sorry to break it to you guys, but as I understand it the good people at LSAC almost always release scores on the Friday or Saturday prior to the official release date, and not because they're really nice people who want to get y'all your scores ASAP.

They pick the Monday three weeks post-test as the official release date because that's the absolute longest it could possibly take them to have everything finished. (Say they spill coffee all over the scantron cards or the printer suffers a catastrophic paper jam or whatever).

Anyway, they usually have scores ready a lot earlier then that (again, as I understand it). But that's not the reason they release them early; they don't release them on Monday because they don't want all the aspiring little 0Ls get their little hearts broken during office hours.

My guess is LSAC views a Monday release as a sort of doomsday scenario ('oh god, five days of people calling us complaining about their meager scores! That sounds like accountability!'), so they release them early. But not so early that they'd leave themselves vulnerable to fielding questions, which is why scores are usually released on Friday afternoon (right before closing time), or sometime Saturday. This gives disappointed test takers a chance to kill themselves before LSAC's office opens, thus saving all the useful little operators the trouble of listening to them cry on the phone, talking about how the LSAT ruined their lives.

I was under the assumption scores would get out late tomorrow.

Last time I took the test was in June of 2006, and the scores came out on the Thursday before the Monday they were originally scheduled.

The June 2007 test didn't come out until Saturday afternoon.  I was boiling with insanity by the time I got that far.  I was glued to my monitor by Wednesday because one year they came out on a Wednesday :S

I'm not getting my hopes up until Friday.  I check my account once or twice a day just because I'm crazy like that but I won't really expect to see anything until Friday afternoon.

Of course, I had a nice root canal this morning to take my mind off of things.  Nothing like a dental emergency to provide a distraction.

god it's really getting close. i've been checking lsac obsessively for 2 days now but never really expected the scores to be there. and during that time i kinda forgot that the scores actually will be posted one day. uh oh. will it be joy or despair? do i really want to know?

I didn't even get the email but I was MAD!  why take the time to trick people and mess with their feelings like that.  This is a very emotional state for test takers.
