Someone posted this earlier but here is when last december came out. (It had the same holiday conflict and was released early as well.)

Wow, 12 days early... I would LOVE that.

That would mean we would get our scores back any day now. Sadly, I think the soonest we can hope for is July 3rd.

From reading other threads, it seems as though they have a habit of posting the Friday prior to the official release date. Of course, "July 4, 2008 LSAC Offices Closed for Independence Day." Therefore, July 3rd seems to be the most reasonable guess.

If I scored above 176 I am buying a ticket to Vegas to spend the extended weekend there. Anyone else have any celebratory plans?
 

If I get over 170 I'm asking my girlfriend to marry me

Doesn't your signature say that you've already gotten a 178? Or is that a PT score?

[poll edit - dates added]

Since some people seem to believe that a [holiday] weekend score release is a legitimate possibility  ???, I added July 4th, 5th, and 6th to the poll.

Nevertheless, I really doubt that those dates are in play, given the fact that the weekend in question is a holiday weekend, and the LSAC offices are closed on Friday, July 4th.

I'm going to Coney Island! (okay so it's not exactly Disney World but its got rides and a beach so one can pretend....)

Also if you get above 176, don't you think going to Vegas would be pressing your luck just a little? I'd think you'd have used up your allowance for a little while

Haha, You may be right.

 I was thinking that if I got lucky on the LSAT, perhaps my luck would carry over to Vegas as well.

If I did well I hope they release it on the third so I can have a very happy 21st bday over the weekend. If I bombed it I hope they don't release it until the 7th so it doesn't ruin my birthday (and I don't drink myself to death).


That would be a great 21st birthday gift.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Logic Games by Type and Question
« on: June 23, 2008, 09:42:18 PM »
Its all about figuring out what works for you personally. For me, I'd worked about 40 preptests (usually missing 3 to 6 per section) prior to finally buying the LGB. After working through the bible one day I was down to missing 0 to 2 on LG's from PT 40-53 (and finished 2 minutes early on June 2008 LG).

The section went from being my worst section pre-LGB to being my best section a few days later post-LGB.

Stephcope's method sounds somewhat like the numbertwopencil.net method. Which, in the end, didn't help me much. Still, if it works for her (or for anyone else) then thats great.

Of course, the official release date is July 7th...

But, I'm going to go ahead and guess that they will release scores early on July 3rd and let us relax and celebrate (or drink away our sorrows) over the holiday weekend.

What is everyone else guessing?

Vote!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: To cancel or not!?
« on: June 17, 2008, 12:24:11 AM »
I think that a decision to cancel must depend on two things:

1) Is your score likely to reflect your aptitude on the LSAT?

2) Is your score likely to be accepted at your target schools?

If you feel as though you are in the low to mid 160s and you want to go to HYS, then cancel your score.

Having said that, if your preptest scores are in the mid to high 160s and you want to go to HYS, you may have to adjust your expectations.

My best preptest was 178, my last 10 preptests were in the 172-178 range, and I am not convinced that I am going to be competitive at HYS based on lawschoolnumbers.com figures.

Additionally, I would also consider the extent of your prep. I went through 53 preptests over the last 2 or 3 months. If i wanted to retake in October, I honestly don't think that there is much more that I could possibly do. Did you do everything that you could to prepare for this exam? If not, will you have the time and energy to put into fully preparing for the October exam?

Either way, sleep on it for a night or two. Most people feel as though they performed worse than they could have on exam day. Take some time to consider everything.

Good Luck!

One problem I've heard with this is that you don't always have time to set it back between sections.

The moving bezel method is a bit quicker than resetting to 12 (though admittedly only by a second or two), and also doesn't allow for the mistake of forgetting to push the dial back in the dial and begin the time.
