It also doesn't include who is/isn't applying.

Even more importantly, people seem to think it is better to apply in a down season -- I don't neccessarily agree, I believe it all evens out.  Though the number of tests administered is down (as people have shown due to the economy), this means that mainly those whom intend on law (not just looking for a job) are taking the test, and also not those whom want to see how they will due. 

I also wholeheartedly believe this is why you see the scale becoming so damn hard.  The majority of people whom would do well on the test are continuing to take the test as before, but those whom are more of the bottom feeders looking for a different career or to see how they are doing aren't taking the test.  Hence less of a pool, and the more competition for the top spots.

Some may not agree, but it is very feasible, which is also why admissions are talking about how it is more competitive that ever in the top schools.

So as for me, I'll encourage every idiot in the world to take the test.

I'm going to chime in on this one.

I got similarly crushed on the December exam.  My last five practice scores were a 168,169, 171,171,172 and I dropped a nice 156 on the real bad boy.  Am I dissappointed, yes extremely.   But I realize my score was not the result of not knowing the material, but rather of extreme anxiety in the days leading up to and during the test ( i slept only 4 hrs of the 72 leading up to the test, and driving home wwas so disoriented it took me over 1 1/2 hrs to complete a 15 minute trip.)   

And I've learned, i think, finally how to fail (okay so it's not failing, but it sure felt like it)  My life goes on, I'll delay applying for a year, and it wasn't this cataclysmic event that I thought it would be.  In any case, I just sucked it up and signed up for the February exam.  So here's so cheers, and good luck to you in the future lsats.

And ohh yeah, for those of you whom will say thats part of the test and I need to do that as a lawyer,,, thanks,,,, I've been in super high pressured jobs for a long time and handle it well,  perhaps even better than most others.

Yup....i am as I stated yesterday.


Last night I was so f@ing pissed I didn't know what to do.   I'm just anxious know I'll be behind the ball iwth applicatoins because everyone else will be sending them in today, and I won't even get my score till Wednesday at the earliest, which is really bad.

Perhaps the most frustrating experience ever.

Must of been the hold then, since you paid it off also within the last few days and also didn't get your score.

But what a mistake by them......to not update your system before a score comes out and have some people not get their scores cause of that?   I'm pissed to say the least.

I f@ing paid my hold yesterday (i was waiting on a fee waiver application for LSDAS) and then I just logged on to my email, got all excited because I had an email from the LSAC to read:

Your December 03, 2005 LSAT information cannot be released because of a
hold on your file or delay in score reporting.  Once the hold or delay
has been resolved, your LSAT information will be available in the LSAT
section of the MY DOCS folder in your Online Services account at
www.lsac.org.


What the hell?  No one is even in the office for 5 more days?   They already processed the payments as it's on my credit card online statement.


Please someone else who got this explain?
