October 2010 LSAT Scores Coming Out…Sometime


Update 5:50 P.M.: LSAT scores have been released. Will update you with curve info as soon as we have some idea.

So, it’s Friday. As I’m writing this, it’s 11:07 AM. I’ve just had a bowl of cereal (some knockoff cereal with flakes and strawberries). October 2010 LSAT scores are not out, at least as far as we can tell. There’s still a fairly good chance they come out today, but as you’re waiting, slide on over to the all-new discussion board. We’ll have instructors there who can provide some expertise and console you as those three little numbers start to roll in. If scores get released today, we’ll have a little analysis of the curve and what it all means for you. Anyway, good luck!

    My lsac.org account says my e-mail notification will come November 1st.

    Yeah, LSAC just often (as in, most of the time) releases the scores early. Mine, for example, came on the Thursday of the week before they said they’d release them.

      Would they send them on a weekend? I need to know if I will be spending my Homecoming festivities obsessively checking my mobile mail. That could be a buzz kill.

      • Dave Woods says:

        All we know is that they will certainly be released by Monday. Mixed reports on whether they ever get released over the weekend. So Homecoming might be a little rough. Sorry.

    I’m about to lose my mind. If they don’t come out today, is there a chance they can come out on Saturday or Sunday? Or is a weekday thing?

      We’ve got mixed reports about whether they have ever come out over the weekend. We do know that they will definitely be released by Monday.

    just got my score. worst score I have ever gotten. ever.

  5. JT says:

    Shannon – I’m so sorry to hear that. Please feel free to email me (Jodi) at info@blueprintprep to discuss your situation and how we can help.

    Shane – Although people are getting their scores and %, the pdf’s on the LSAC website that give out the curve aren’t yet accessible. If you can access yours, let me know!

    I got my score. It was a huge blow to my confidence and really has made me question my pursuit of law school. Maybe it’s a sign that this road is not for me? I got the EXACT same score as my Dec 09 test. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?? In the time from Dec to Oct I was scoring at least 10 points higher than that score. Is it possible they made a mistake?!?! Should I call them and ask to grade my test by hand?? I wasn’t even expecting my score today…I was thinking it would be sent out Nov 1 like they said on the LSAC website. Sigh. WORST DAY EVER. =(

    Someone buy me a drink and let me cry on their shoulder. ='(

    Hi Dee,
    Major bummer. Did something happen during the test (nerves, etc.) that might have interfered with you getting the kind of scores you were getting on your practice tests? Though your disappointment is understandable, I wouldn’t let your LSAT score dictate whether the profession is right for you. If you really want to be a lawyer, then you can make it happen.
    Keep your chin up!

  8. Dee says:


    I was a little nervous, but I knew I was ready for the test this second time. It didn’t go as great as I hoped, but I honestly felt that this score would be somewhat better than my first, at the very least. What should I do? Call LSAC and ask to score by hand? Take it a THIRD time?? LSAC sure knows how to make you feel like crap. I know that this isn’t the end of the world. I really do want to be a lawyer and help others. And in the end it doesn’t matter which road I take to my goals, just as long as I get there. But dude….such a depressing time…sigh


  9. JT says:

    You’ll know more when you get your score report and can compare yours answers with the questions. If something looks off, then you can ask them to grade it by hand. With regard to taking the test a third time, the answer is whether or not you would go to the schools you can get into with your GPA and LSAT score. If you would, then you should apply. If you wouldn’t, then you should ask yourself what can change so you can get the score you want in December (or a later test date). Sit with it for awhile and rational thought will rise to the surface.
    Now don’t worry about this any more tonight and do something fun!

    • Dee says:


      Thank you for your advice. It’s helping. It looks like I have some thinkin’ to do. But in the end I know I will get to my goals…just have to keep pushing through.


  10. Michael says:

    My sincerest apologies to both Shannon and Dee, I know how hard it can be when you don’t get the score you’re expecting. Although I’m still waiting for the curve to show up on LSAC.org (along with everyone else), I have a feeling it wasn’t very forgiving this time around.

    Speaking personally, I choked on the June exam—scoring 12 points below my average PT. Honestly, it took me a couple weeks to get over it. But, I took my experiences from that test and refocused myself for October, and it turned out significantly better than I expected. Just remember that, despite how you might feel right now, this isn’t the end of the world. Go out, have a drink and know that there’s always next time.

    Hi Everyone,

    Hope it’s going well! Everyone who I have talked to who took it at the Berkeley test site has gotten their scores (as of 7:15pm). I took it in Oakland, and I have yet to receive mine. Any people from Oakland receive their score… or not?


  12. Casey says:

    I am about my average score that I was getting on Practice Tests, but at the lower end of my average score. I don’t know if I should retake – so torn – as I dedicated a ton of time to do all of the work, and scored at my goal scores in practice tests (which was 2-3 points higher) then what I got today. Kind of bummed.

  13. Shadi says:

    The curve is posted. 89 and 90 out of 101 were both 170
