Copying recent post from TLS boards... seems to fit this thread.
"I've been reading the board and finally decided to post. The scores will be released this week before LSAC closes for Winter Break.
I work for a tier 1 LS in the admissions office and process the admit letters. I also do the downloads from LSAC. We will be downloading a batch of law school reports this Friday evening after 6pm. The Dean wants as many reports and files as he can get completed so he can make decisions while the school is closed. So, test scores will definitely be released before the holiday. The people that took the test late will get their scores the same time everyone else does.
We download the new applications and request the LSDAS report for each applicant. We only get the report if you have submitted everything required to Law Services. Also, only the school can request the reports. Then they are mailed to us from Law Services.
If we already have an application and a LSAT score on file, we get the update mailed to us automatically. We usually download the applicant information from LSAC in the morning and upload any applicant information to LSAC in the afternoon.
So, between tomorrow and Thursday, my office is to have all of the applications that are just missing the report, compiled and ready for review. On Friday, I will do a download in the morning and in the evening, which is in essence requesting the reports for the applicants just missing the score or the updates.
Even though we will not have the paper reports, the Dean will be able to check our computer system for scores and pull the files he's interested in.
To be honest, I would call the school just to remind them. Even though it will be noted that you took the test again, some employees are lazy. It's the holiday season and there is a lot of pressure to get files completed quickly. I wouldn't take a chance. I have seen files go to the dean for review and an updated report come in after the decision had already been made. I've only seen the dean pull one person for acceptance after he marked the file as denied.
This is my first time being on the student side so it's kind of exciting."
