As if taking the LSAT isn’t stressful enough, LSAC has apparently endeavored to make the process of releasing LSAT scores as anxiety-producing and uncertain as possible. It’s as if the evil geniuses at LSAC realize they only have one more chance to toy with your emotions, and are taking full advantage of the opportunity. Here’s a run-down of what to expect (and not to expect) when you’re expecting an LSAT score.
If you took the February LSAT, you probably already know that scores were released surprisingly late last night. While it’s not unprecendented for LSAC to start sending out e-mails late in the evening, that’s probably not much solace to the thousands of LSAT sitters who were literally waiting by the figurative phone.
That said, if you were one of the the folks waiting on LSAC’s bureaucratic machinery, we hope you at least got the score you were shooting for. if you did, congratulations are in order.
If you fell short, of course, the frustrating part about the February LSAT is that you’ll never know what you got wrong. Questions, answers, and even the curve will all remain undisclosed — lost to history like the secrets of the Egyptian pyramids or who shot Mr. Burns.
