What to Expect as You Await Your LSAT Score

If you took the October LSAT, you’re probably wondering where your LSAT score is. Your LSAT score is not scheduled to come out until Wednesday, but they usually arrive multiple days early. So people are getting anxious. You could be getting your LSAT score at any time! Like right now! Go check your email!

No, but seriously, try not to freak out about it. Worrying won’t make your LSAT score come out sooner or be any higher. However, you can start planning for one of three results:

1. Your LSAT score is exactly what you expected. Great. No surprises, it all paid off. Now get started on your applications. Really, now! Send them out as soon as possible, and you’re on your way to enjoy law school!

Pot Roast and Perseverance: Comparing the LSAT to Marriage

I recently got married, and it’s a lot like the LSAT.

You’ve got to devote a lot of time to both. If you don’t spend a lot of time studying for the LSAT, you won’t do well on it and won’t go to the law school of your choosing. With marriage, you have to spend a lot of time, too. Last week I come home and Deborah asks, “Did you pick up the dry cleaning?” and I says, “No, Deborah, I forgot. I’ll get it tomorrow,” and then she starts talking about how I forgot last time too, and I says, “Deborah, I work too hard to come home to this garbage!” Well, that just set her off, and she starts running her mouth about how I’m always forgetting things, so I just leave to go meet Mike at the bar, because I sure as hell wasn’t going to sit around listening to Deborah’s garbage.

In Law School Admissions, Timing Isn’t Everything

Ah, October. The smell of leaves, the taste of Halloween candy, and the panic of law school hopefuls rushing to get their applications in.

But beware, early birds; you won’t always get the worm just for showing up first. While many law schools have rolling admissions, it is far better to submit an application that is well thought-out and includes an LSAT score that you are proud of than hurrying to get in an app that your friends reassured you was “fine.” Think hard about whether you did your best, or maybe if taking the December LSAT or spending an extra couple weeks rewriting your personal statement would really make your application shine. If you do decide to take the LSAT again in December, make sure you have all of the other parts of your application ready to be sent the minute that score comes back.
