December 2010 LSAT Score Release, Now What?

LSAT scores for the December 2010 LSAT have not been released before the week of the scheduled date, which is historically very strange. Over the past five years, the December LSAT scores have been emailed out an average of 9 days earlier, with a high of 13 and low of 4. Looks like we're in for an even longer wait than those suffered in 2005.

I'm in my own stew because Harvard doesn't release grades until January 24th-ish, which means it will be almost a month since the exams. In other words, I feel your pain, but expect it to continue.

Meanwhile, I wanted to summarize and link to the information on the blog about how to interpret your score and how to decide whether or not to retake.

If you're happy with your score, congratulations! You should proceed to the posts about drafting your law school resume and personal statement, as well as how to get the best law school letters of recommendation.

If you're unhappy with your score, it's time to start planning what you'll do differently when you retake the LSAT. You're not alone, as a huge number of people retake, and often to better results on the second LSAT.
