Studying for the LSAT / Re: COUNTDOWN TO THE SCORES!!!

This is crazy... Our law school lives depend on one little three digit number... those people have it and they arn't giving it to us!!!!!

We have to wait another 1-3 hours...  AKA an eternity

Well technically it's not just your law school life, but the rest of your life. 

Well yes, your right... The law school you go to determines the job you get, which determines how you go about the rest of your life...  All of this is predicated on a three digit number

How bout that for some added pressure!  :o

If you're good, you could still get a great job in spite of ending up at a non-t14 school, I'm sure. It doesn't really determine all that much.

<< oh yeh, sure... if by "great job" you mean FRY MANAGER

Having normal things happen to you and being able to make them sound funny = funny.


Um, having normal things happen to you = TALKING

Ex. "I went to the train station yesterday and saw a man." Normal, but not funny and without an "inciting incident" cannot be made funny. Ask any writer you know. "I went to the train station yesterday and saw a man taking a dump in the street. Ah, now we have an interesting twist... = funny.

As a girl... I agree that girls have a different sense of humor than guys. Most of my friends say I'm funny, because crazy things happen to me and I can tell a good story. (i.e. having an all out panic attack in the mystic tan booth). But, do I have "jokes"? No. Sometimes I can do witty banter, but only if I'm talking 1 on 1 with somebody I'm interested in. Law boards do not put me in a funny mood-- sorry to disappoint.

Now that the day is here, I'm not feeling confident at all. I keep having visions of a 157... (and my visions have been correct in the past). Hoping this is an exception to that...

Either will be crying, rocking and sucking thumb under work desk or kicking off heels and skipping through building singing, "I got a 1__"

Studying for the LSAT / Re: how would the Dec score be reported

Just taking a guess here, but I'd say call before the score comes out. It seems to me that the order is files prepped for dean, scores out- updates added to files, dean reviews. If it were me, I'd want a giant sticky note on my file that says "hold for Dec score"... just in case the dean sees the file before the updates were added. So, I'd call Thursday.

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."
