December 2012 LSAT Score Release Dates

LSAT Blog December 2012 LSAT Score Release Dates
Update: December 2012 LSAT scores were released on January 2, 2013.

Good luck to everyone taking the December 2012 LSAT!

The December 2012 LSAT scores / results are scheduled to be released via email by Friday, January 4, 2013, so you'll have to wait for your LSAT score.

However, the scores usually come out a bit earlier than scheduled.

Let's look at the trend over the past several years (click to enlarge):



LSAT Blog December 2012 LSAT Score Release Dates



I've never heard of them coming back on the scheduled release date itself. As you can see, LSAC is taking longer and longer to release December LSAT scores. I believe that Thursday, January 3, is the most likely score release date based on the above.

"But at what time specifically do scores come on score release days? I need to know when to constantly refresh my email / LSAC account!"

In batches over the course of several hours. Likely starting late in the day (Eastern Time).

No one knows how the batches are organized, if at all.

The batches do not seem to be organized in any of these ways:

alphabetical/regional/high-to-low scores/low-to-high scores/test center #, etc.

Wish everyone all the best!

Please feel free to vent and discuss your general thoughts on the exam in the comments, but no specifics about particular questions themselves, please. (LSAC doesn't permit such discussion.)

  4. Does anyone know what the reading comp section that counted was?

    1. I only had one reading comp section and it had the one with the pin factory

      Delete
    2. So hard to even remember what they were. Was that the section with the passage on the multi-verse?

      Delete
    3. Same. One reading section that opened with a discussion of Adam Smith's "The Wealth of Nations".

      Delete
    4. The one with Pin Theory and the "Corridos" was the one that counted. I only had one RC

  5. Yes, the one that began with the Spanish folk music passage

  6. what about games?

    1. The games had the morning, afternoon and evening testimonies

    1. Me too. I almost wanted to cry but I think I still managed to score a few points despite the fact that time was seriously running out.

      Delete
    2. That one was tough. It seems LSAC is throwing in WORDY games now... I battled through it and hope I got 3-4/6. The other were pretty easy... I knew the first games section was too good to be true, they were extremely easy

      Delete
    3. But I heard LG were getting easier so who knows maybe the easier section was the scored one?

      I had 3 minutes left with the voicemail game and I couldn't figure out the setup! :/

      Delete
    4. I had one LG section and it incorporated the turn around time for voice/web services.

      Delete
    5. I had that one too, It was horrible.

      Delete
    6. It was pure evil. With each section, I was praying for another LG section in the vain hope that I had taken the experimental section. When I came back to my 3rd LR after the break, my heart sank. I had an easier time with the LR and RC sections thanks to LSAT Blog, though. Let's just hope that enough people had trouble with it to lower the test scaling.

  8. Websites/voicemail was graded only had 1 reading comp and one logic game

  9. does anyone know which two LR sections counted? one had 26 questions, and two had 25 questions

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I had 2 26s and a 25

      Delete
    2. I also had 2 26s and a 25. The 25 was the 4th section for me. So, one of the 26 was most likely the experiment.

      Delete
  10. One LR section was super easy, I'm guessing that one was the experiemental. I hope not cuz I totally owned it.

    LG though got my head spinning towards the end.

    Another question, if I took my first LSAT in Dec 2010, and this one was my retake. When am I allowed to retake again? It's been two years already so the two-year period is over, meaning I can do maximum 3 in the next 2 years?

    ReplyDelete
  11. I had rc, LG, lr, lr, lg. can't remember which section voicemail and therefore counted, did anyone else have the same setup? I think my last game in section 5 was sequence 7 things maybe, with j-g-r as a rule or something. Can anyone tell which was exp? Can't believe my memory is so shot lol.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I had the same as you - It is your last section that counted and #2 was the experimental

      Delete
    2. J...g...r counted. That section also had the one with if q3 then s...q

      Delete
    3. How do we know that the 2nd section was experimental?

      I was hoping the last LG section was experimental...I got through more questions easily in the 2nd section. Didn't get that voicemail question AT ALL in the last section.

      Delete
    4. Second LG was definitely the Experimental one.

      Delete
    5. Agreed the one with JGH QRS Y....(S>Y) if S is before Q--> Q3 J>G>H and no consecutive was the real one. I only had one game section. I also only did two games -___-

      Delete
    6. Was there really a rule regarding S>Y? I don't seem to recall that.

      Delete
  12. Sucks. I had that one too. Crushed the first LG section. Completely blew it on the second one. Yaaay.... I get to take the lsat in February. Again. For the third time.

    ReplyDelete
  13. RC-Mexican dance, Adam Smith
    LG-vmail and website service calls
    LR- One had one of the last questions something about a fish has fur, a cat is a dog, a dog is a fish- this was not expiremental

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think the LR you are discussing was a parallel question concerning apartments with a fireplace and balcony, and one bedroom apartments not having one of those features.

      By the way, my test was LG, LR, RC, RC, LR.

      Delete
    2. I had the exact same set up. Mine was RC, LR, LR, LR, LG. The logic games were easy to me but I wish I had enough time to fully complete the 2 game. Awe well!

      Delete
  14. Haha awesome, I did well on the LG RC and the LR with the cat dog fish (but couldn't get that specific question lol - I had like 6 minutes to spend on it and still couldn't figure it out lol) any idea which was the other LR? I owned one but the other was pretty tough....

    1. Spanish dance....plants and bugs.....I had two RC sections so now they are blurring together. Think one about artwork fees was experimental, and civil war....I think the scored RC had a split passage about law loopholes as compared to something in a newspaper....

    2. I got that as well..Hope I did good on this..I wish the writing portion was graded would ACE this for sure if it was!

  20. Had LG, LR, LR, RC, and LR.

    LG with the horrid website/voicemail game + j-g-r/s-y [counted]
    LR with some super easy questions--i don't remember them exactly [maybe cats/allergies/proteins?
    LR with blinds/curtains/valences parallel reasoning
    RC with adam smith/pin factory/invisible hand [counted]
    LR with cat/dog fish/fur

    does anyone know with just two LR's know which LR was experimental?

    so glad to be done!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Just two LRs means both were scored. The unscored section would be a 3rd LR (if it was an LR), or a second RC/LG section.

      Delete
    2. sure. i was trying to figure out which LR was experimental from those who had only 2 LRs [rather than someone like me who had 3].

      Delete
    3. all the questions you mention were scored, so if you're unsure if the cat allergy was section 2, i'd say that's more likely unscored. I only had 2 LR and definitely had valence/blind and balcony/fur questions.

      Delete
    4. Hey. i think i know which one is the experimental because i didn't have the blineds/curtains/ valences parallel reasoning. Instead i had two Reading Comperhension; and the first one was kinda diffcult.

      Delete
  21. I had

    RC (only one)
    LR (was okay)
    LR (more difficult)
    break
    LR (was a breeze! I'm glad Steve says the experimental is usually within the first 3 sections)
    LG (started panicking at the end but the first two games were okay. third game (7 dudes) and fourth (software testing for 3 people? were not hard per se but I had little time left and my brain started freezing)

    Now I can't seem to remember what life before the LSAT was.

    But I got a good correlation/causation flaw to share with you guys! (I made it up)

    Higher amount of time devoted to studying for the LSAT does *not* necessarily contribute to a higher score. But it can be correlated, meaning having the goal of getting a higher score could have contributed to a longer period of studying. So for those who studied hard but didn't get the score they wanted, there's always the retake option!

    But hope everyone gets a score they wanted.

    Cheers.

  22. Anyone remember all 4 of the RC passages?

    ReplyDelete
  23. 1) corrida/mexican folk song
    2) plants/insects
    3) adam smith/increasing returns
    4) comparative passage - selective enforcement/water bills

  24. Steve you are the best.Test seemed tough! 2 RC sections. But grateful there is Feb. What do you suggest for those who want to get a jump on the Feb test?

    ReplyDelete
  25. did anyone else find the pin factory rc really hard??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I found this rc section to be extremely difficult. This was my second best section on my pts (LG being my first) and I feel like I totally bombed this one. It was my first section so maybe nerves got the best of me...but still, I found it wayyyy more difficult than any pt.

      Delete
    2. Yeah it was the hardest of the RC. Not the passage the questions.

      Delete
    3. RC was very hard!!! The only one I felt good about was the law enforcement. Comparative passages

      Delete
    4. Yeah -- I too usually do well on RC and thought this one was really, really tough -- ran out of time on the last passage. Since the last passage was comparative, I couldn't skim and basically dropped 4/6 on it.

      Had it first as well so I think I wasn't warmed up enough for that bad boy.

      My lineup was: RC, LR, LR, LR, LG. Thought all other sections were pretty easy though so am hopeful that I didn't do too much damage.

      At least we're done!

      Delete
    5. Im pretty sure the comparative about enforcement had 5 Q. So hopefully with a guess or 2 you did well

      Delete
    6. i also thought RC section in general was tougher than previous LSATs...and RC is usually where I can get at least 17 or 18 so I'm nervous about that :/

      Delete
    7. I usually do very well on RC also but i found this one very hard. Kind of bummed out because I ran out of time on the LG section and both LR sections and had to guess. I am hoping for a miracle but i have a feeling i may be pretty disappointe when the scores are released

      Delete
  26. I had RC LR LR LR LG, and the first LR was definitely the experimental. There were only 24 questions - suspicious for a real LR - and one of the questions (the one about fractures in Mozart's skull) was recycled from a previous test.

    But I could be wrong, because it seems strange that they would give us so many clues as to which one is experimental.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If someone had the same order RC LR LR LR LG then does that mean they definitely also had the first LR as experimental, even if they didn't have the Mozart question or any section with 24 Qs?

      Delete
    2. It sounds like they actually had different experimental LRs, so mine was only 24Qs, but others had 25Qs. People are remembering valences and curtains, and cat/dog/fur, so you can at least use those to narrow down which is your exp. Someone suggested that cats/allergies/proteins was exp., but I can't remember.. Really it's all just a blur now :0) Good luck!!

      Delete
  27. Didn't have anything about Mozart's skull in mine & I only had two LR

    ReplyDelete
  28. So that website/voicemail LG was scored? I had two LG, the 1st or 2nd ( I forget) and the 5th. The 5th Logic Games section included the website game. I felt confident on the entire test besides this section. Anyone else feel that this section was much harder and more trouble than the practice tests they had been taking?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. LG was alright up till the 4th game. I was running out of time so my nervousness worsened it. But overall, I think the test was easier than my normal practice tests overall (especially for LRs).

      Delete
    2. If website/voicemail was the scored LG, what was the dummy LG?

      Delete
    3. I was getting 159-164 on the practice exams, with maybe 1 logic game at the most that completely stumped me. I felt fine with all the sections on this test except for LG. Two of the games stumped me and I did not feel confident in 1/2 that I completed.

      Not sure what thats about ,maybe I was burnt out having it be section 5 or just a mental fluke, but I'm starting to agree with other test takers that the order of the test and the way they assign differnt experimental sections to different books is an unfair advantage to some.

      Delete
    4. I also had the only LG as the 5th section and although I didn't think I was tired, because I was expecting that when I came back from back I'd be doing the LG as 4th, but it wasn't, and so my energy was dying a little closer till the end, when I finally got to the 4th game. And I only had 10 minutes left (I was going to use the final 5 minutes for review).

      Anyhow, I only felt a bit frustrated about the LG, I think the LRs were quite easy compared to my normal PT's.

      Delete
  29. Hey, so I had LG LR LR RC LR

    I think just the fact that I had LG first went in my favor, I flew threw it and wrote the voicemail/website first, after I was through it I felt that everything else was almost purely sequential and I (fortunately) didn't run out of time. Additionally because RC was right after the break, I went at it with new energy and think I did pretty well (I wonder if LSAC considers the orders of the exams given because I do believe it affects the outcome of particular students).

    Anyway, my first LR was 26 questions - I thought it was a little difficult the second LR was 25 questions - I breezed through it and had about 7 minutes left (so I was convinced this was experimental), the last LR was cat/dog/fur so I know this one counted (and I think I did well besides that question which I spent like 4 minutes on)

    Anyway, just wondering if anyone knows which of the LRs was counted - I haven't seen too many people discussing the 26 question LR so I'm hoping this wasn't included - but if so, I still think i can pull off a decent score.

    Cheers

    1. I'm with you on that. I had LG 2nd and 5th, the 5th one being scored. I was stumped and had to guess on 9-10 of the scored LG section. I'm stressed over this because I've never had to guess that much on a practice exam. I felt that this section was difficult ,but perhaps I was burnt out. On the contrary, I felt very confident on the other 3 sections and had no major issues.

    3. Did you think LG was hard? I'm stressed myself because the LG stumped me I had to guess on 9-10 questions. The LR's and the RC I felt confident on, and had maybe 3-4 educated guesses ( not random guesses) on those 3 sections combined. Granted my scored LG was 5th, which did not help me personally as I like getting that out of the way early.

      Delete
    4. I think the first two LG questions were so easy. I finished them within 10 minutes i think. And i headed straight to the 4th question after i quickly skimed over the third. I think that one asked 3,2,1 testmonies sharing from three different individuals in three days. It was so diffcult so have a clear mind to make a setup. The fourth one was a linear+group game. Three varaties in the group part. It could go with 1,2,4or 2,2,3 or something like that

      Delete
    5. The liberalism one didn't count.

      The RC that counted is
      1) corrida/mexican folk song
      2) plants/insects
      3) adam smith/increasing returns
      4) comparative passage - selective enforcement/water bills

  32. The third LG question was hard. I think it has 4 varaiables. Morning/Afternoon+Friday/Sat/Sun+Names+works. I remember that it had 6 questions. i skipped that and went directly to the 4th one casue i knew i would take me more than 10 minuetes to figure it out. So i just put down six Ds

  33. LSAC claims that scores are released "about 3 weeks" after the test date. So why are the scheduled score release dates for December administrations of the test consistently over 4 weeks after the test date? Maybe because of the holiday season? I just want my score before Christmas.

    Replies
    1. not gonna happen

      Delete
    2. maybe not, but that is a bold claim. The december test has come out up to 13 days prior to release date in the past. Also, there are less test takers this year than there have been in the last couple so that should only make it easier for LSAC to finalize the december test. I'm not making predictions, but 'not gonna happen' is a strange thing to say.

  36. If you look at the number of business days it has taken for scores to be released (assuming that LSAC employees are getting two days off for Christmas and one day off for the new year--standard for many companies), there is far less variability than there is when looking just at the number of days. For every year from 2004-2010, it consistently took 13-15 business days to release the score. 2011 seems to be an aberration, as it took 20 business days to release the score. For 2012, 15 business days would be the 21st--this Friday! My guess is that we'll get our scores back on the 27th or 28th at the very latest, but expecting them late this week is actually quite reasonable. Hang in there everyone!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sorry, correction to my previous post: 2010 was actually 16 business days. In case anyone cares to know the specifics, the number of business days needed for the score to be released each year are:
      2004: 13
      2005: 15
      2006: 14
      2007: 14
      2008: 14
      2009: 14
      2010: 16
      2011: 20

  37. Thank you! I was thinking this same exact thing and it shows how silly all those are who say there is no chance they will come out before Jan. 2nd. Sure there is a chance it will be that late, but from the numbers it seems highly likelier that we will get them possibly this week, next at the latest. Glad you are being reasonable here and not talking out of you're...uh...yeah.

    1. So they come back and have 3 days to release the scores....Really!!?? They couldn't just crank it out before the break! :(

    2. How about a 'we did our best but just couldn't finish' or 'tried to get it out before as best we could but unfortunately were unable to make it happen' ....do they care about the 37k+ who have to have this hanging over the back of their heads during the holiday?
      Are the LSAC people good guys? Sure we are stressed about our scores and biased, but it seems a little rude to not offer any type of thoughtful response to us.

      Delete
    3. Agreed. It is unfortunate that it seems like they will not have it done before the break. Two days will be no time to get the tests ready compared to the time that they already had. It almost seems as if they are intentionally waiting to release the scores. That is, unless the magical two days from when they get back till their release date makes all of the difference, but I doubt it.

      Delete
    4. I have no idea why, but I can't help but think there is something intentional about it either. I just can't imagine those two days being a make or break deal, and any sympathetic boss would push his or her employees to just finished the job. This is what they do, and if they take any pride in their work they would be tyring to please thier customers, i.e the testtakers to the best of their abilities. Something seems off, I wonder what if any benefit it draws to them to release after the holiday. Or maybe this is reading too much into it. haha.

  42. Just want to make sure, no one has received scores, correct? Please, NO TROLLS SAYING THAT THEY ARE OUT (if the scores are not actually out)!!! IT REALLY ISN'T FUNNY!!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. No scores yet; if they were coming out today we probably wouldn't know until 5ET

    ReplyDelete
  44. definitely no scores today - not only did their twitter post acknowledge this but also the site would probably shut down for a little beforehand and the green icons would turn a different color. Unfortunately we will know in 2013

    ReplyDelete
  45. I wonder if they were waiting to see if the world was really going to end, because if it was, then their efforts to release our scores would have been in vain. Now that the apocalypse is not here, they can release our scores, except they won't be back to work for another 10 days.

    ReplyDelete
  46. NO chance they'd release it over the break?

    ReplyDelete
  47. From someone on a Top Law Schools thread from last December:

    "Judging by this December 2009 thread it looks like they received their scores on December 28 - WHEN THE LSAC OFFICES WERE CLOSED.

    http://72.32.104.129/archives/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=100492&start=25"

    So it's pretty secondhand (or third-hand) at this point, but there does seem to be a possibility that scores will still come out before 2013.

    Furthermore, LSAC's recent Facebook post said "LSAC offices will be closed from December 24 through January 1. Our offices will reopen on January 2, 2013. Online accounts will continue to be updated, so please check your account if you have questions about the status of your LSAC file." It's speculation, but that last sentence implies there will be some activity while the offices are closed, so I'm still crossing my fingers for a December release.

    1. I see your point but if you look back on those december dates where they were released after Christmas you find that Christmas day was on a thursday friday or saturday late in the week. So LSAC probably had the week before Christmas off that year instead of the week following Christmas when it lands early. Taking this into account, there still reamains a sliver of hope for us but it seems unlikely.I hope I am COMPLETELY WRONG!!!

  48. Think they could get them out today (Saturday) BEFORE their break?

    1. Well they said it wouldn't be released before the break on the LSAC account... but maybe that meant weekdays? We can always hope!

    2. so this means it's not until january 2nd, 3rd, or 4th?

  49. From this thread (http://www.top-law-schools.com/archives/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=96266&start=25), a post on Dec 10, 2009:

    "I called LSAC, and they said that their offices will be closed from Dec. 23 to Jan. 4 -- so it doesn't seem that likely that it'll come out in that window..."

    Scores were released on the 28th that year, during the window in which LSAC said their offices would be closed. Don't give up on a December score release in 2012!!

  50. From what I've read/heard, we'll be getting our scores on the 2nd or 3rd of Jan.

  51. This is torture. In 2008 the test was 12/6 and scores were released, 12/29. In 2009 test: 12/5 scores released: 12/28

    Then the last two years, they have been slacking. 2010 test: 12/11, release: 1/6 -- 2011 test: 12/3, release 1/4.

    So, I think it's certainly possible that we could receive our scores in the next three days, if the LSAC's comment that the site would continue to be updated over the break, is true. Finger crossed.

    How does it work...do they send an email that the scores are being released, or do you just get an email with the score. Is the score posted on the LSAC site, sooner than the email is sent?

    ReplyDelete
  52. you get an email with your score. they don't let you know that they are releasing scores, that information is gathered by people reporting that they have received their scores.

    1. Ditto on the anxiety. I predict today (tomorrow if you're on the West Coast) - any later is unjustifiable. It's already the second-highest turnaround since 2004.

    2. California here. Yeah I hope you are right! To be honest I'm not expecting it to come out today but it's killing me. If they make us wait til after new year's.....come on. Absurd.

    3. Does anyone know, historically, what time of day they start releasing them?

      Delete
  54. very true... I believe that by the rate everything is going, most probably after New Years...

    ReplyDelete
  55. I didn't want to be a pest posting on here, so thanks for talking! It's killing me, I am in the office just hitting refresh on the LSAC site. I am hoping and wishing for today but I think it's going to be Wednesday. There is no excuse for this.

  56. I believe the same way... for sure not today. I am just going in between websites to see any updates on the LSAC AND HERE.

  57. Does anyone actually remember taking the LSAT? I'm pretty sure I took it, which is why I keep looking for a score, but I can't be positive.

  58. Unless someone starts receiving scores in about an hour and a half or less, we will probably be waiting another six or seven days. I doubt they will be up the day that they return, because if they are able to release the scores the day that they return, then they (might have) been able to release them before the break. My guess is that they will not be released until the actual release date, maybe one day earlier. But I also went through the nightmare of the October LSAT also so my faith in LSAC is in the negatives.

    1. How many days did it take to release the Oct scores? If it took/takes less than these, that is just unacceptable as there have been no weather issues and only one holiday since the 1st.

  59. Reply button isn't working but @Anonymous 1:00 PM - I remember my psychological and physiological reactions to the test, but I have only the vaguest memories of content. My hands shook for the first 15 minutes of the test (logic games). After that, I remember being pretty collected until it occurred to me that I was actually at a test center taking the LSAT and not at Starbucks taking a practice test. At that point, my heart started racing and my vision became cloudy (I know, I have issues). I talked myself out of it and continued with the test.

    As shitty as that was, waiting for scores has definitely been the more painful of the two experiences. I wish they'd get on with it already.

    1. I had the same problem during the October test, and I missed 11 questions on the first section, but once I calmed down I missed about 4 on each of the other questions.

      What helped me on the December test is that I realized that the real test is nothing more and nothing different than any of the other diagnostics that you have done at Starbucks. Think about it, if you had been taking the June 2013 test, then the December 2012 would have just been another diagnostic.

      That mentality really helped me stay calm for the December test and I believe that I scored to my potential on the December test. Sorry for the essay but I just wanted to share what helped me since we had experienced similar situations. So if you take the test again, it is something to think about.

    2. Sorry, 4 on each of the other *sections*.

  61. For you who have taken more than once, how close to your actual score was your prediction for what you thought you got? I.E. you thought you got a 170 and then you got your score of 155 and thought wtf or better yet you thought 155 and got your actual score of 170. Best of luck all.

    1. On the October test I thought I'd scored 164 or higher but ended with a 161...Not a huge difference, but it was disheartening enough to opt for a rewrite in December.

  62. Is it possible for the scores to come out tomorrow or even new years day, or is nobody even at their computers or whatever it is they have to do to release them ? Anybody know a solid answer to this, not just guesstimates and hopetimates?

  63. My gut says they will release on Wednesday. However, it is possible we could receive them today, I think tomorrow is a definite no, as it is a holiday.

  67. Well, some of us might be happier today than we are in the next few. This is a verse that has always encouraged me to put things in perspective. All of us have college degrees and many of are are still in our youth. We have our whole lives ahead of us, whether we pursue law or other venues of employment, we have a lot going for us if we do not abuse it.

    “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

  68. I'm hoping they come in the next 12 hours! This waiting is forever... Maybe I'll write my personal statement while I wait. Any ideas, I'm at a loss...

  69. The forehead wrinkle I developed from studying for the LSAT has dramatically deepened while waiting for my score.

  70. Personally I don't think that the scores will be posted today - if they can post them on the 2end then it is likely they could have been out before the break and it doesn't seem to make much sense that they would needlessly wait.

    It's more likely they will be out on either Thursday or Friday.

    1. I agree that Thursday or Friday seem more reasonable but I absolutely would not put it past LSAC to needlessly wait to send them out

  77. last year, it took LSAC two days after their break to release the scores. 15 business days, then they had the week between christmas and new year's off, and since new years was on a weekend, they got jan 2nd off, returned the 3rd and released scores the 4th. this year, same deal: there were 15 business days before their break. they return today, i assume scores tomorrow.

  78. well when scores start rolling in let's post it on here so everyone else knows that they are being sent out! good luck everyone :)

  79. They should just have a definitive release date/time and do away with speculative early releases. Early releases is a recipe for neurotic refreshing and it's killing so much productivity....
