LSAC Releasing 2013 December LSAT Scores Today

Good news if you were looking for a lenient curve on the most recent December LSAT.

LSAC is releasing 2013 December LSAT scores today (at least for those who didn’t have to take a postponed exam due to weather), and all the buzz is about the lenient curve. How lenient? Take a look for yourself:

Yep, that’s an LSAT curve of -14 for a 170, -29 for a 160, and -46 for a 150 — meaning you could have missed 14 questions for a 170, 29 for a 160 or 46 for a 150. Heck, you could have missed three questions and still received a perfect 180 LSAT score.

Now, as of 3:00 p.m. PST, there are still plenty of people who haven’t received a 2013 December LSAT score. It usually takes LSAC several hours throughout the day to release all the LSAT scores in random batches.

The December LSAT Score Wait: Time to Finish Applications

Many of you braved bad proctors, small desks, storms, and, yes, even earthquakes to sit for the 2013 December LSAT. It’s a huge accomplishment. In fact, I’m writing this with a speech recognition program so I can slow clap while writing it. Can you hear it start to speed up? Well, I assure you it is.

My software tried to transcribe the crescendo, so back to serious business.

You should be proud of finishing the LSAT, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to forget about the rest of the law school application process. We’re already in December, so it’s time to light a fire under you.

First off, if you want to apply for the current law school admissions cycle, it’s important to get through the list I’m about to give you ASAP.

What to Do Now If Your 2013 December LSAT Was Postponed

Winter made its arrival official last week when it hammered the United States with bitter cold temperatures and dangerous weather conditions. The results: very snowy football, and almost 30 LSAT test centers closed for the 2013 December LSAT.

While most December LSAT test-takers are beginning the long wait for their LSAT scores, or perhaps debating whether to cancel, the unlucky ones who were registered at those LSAT testing centers must now wait for the word on when they’ll get to retake the LSAT. If your December LSAT was delayed, this blog post is for you.

The first thing you should know is that you need to stay ready. LSAC says that it will get word to you this week about your make up December LSAT test date.

2013 December LSAT Instant Recap

It really is the most wonderful time of the year.

The December LSAT is over.

If you’re here, that means you’re ready to dive right in and discuss the 2013 December LSAT. I’m right with you, but remember: LSAC prohibits talking about LSATs in great detail. We can discuss which sections were toughest, and which were easiest, but we can’t talk about the content of specific questions — especially anything to do with which sections were experimental. If your comment is not approved by the LSAT blog moderator, that means you violated LSAC’s policy in some way.
