June 2016 LSAT takers have one burning question in mind: When exactly will my score be released?
Per LSAC, June 2016 LSAT scores are slated to be released on Thursday, June 30th, 2016. However, past LSAC score-release trends indicate that scores are almost always released earlier than the official date (except when weather conditions have interfered with the original test dates, as was the case with the February 2013 LSAT...although with June tests this is hardly a concern). So, even though you still have to wait to get your score, you probably won't have to wait until the score-release date designated by LSAC.
So when will you have it?
We predict that June 2016 LSAT scores will come out three days early, on Monday, June 27th, 2016*.
Again, this is merely a prediction, but a 2-4 day early release is common for June LSAT scores, and historically it's been as premature as six days**, so it seems likely you'll have yours right around the time we suspect.
A few things to keep in mind:
- Even though trends indicate that scores have traditionally been released before “score release” date stated by LSAC, there’s no guarantee they’ll do it again. All signs point to yes, but don’t bank on the fact that you’ll get yours earlier.
- Scores are released in batches over hours and sometimes days. So, your friend might get their score hours before you do. Don’t panic; you’ll still get it. You might just be in a later batch.
- Scores are not released in any sort of order (geographically, by test score, alphabetically by last or first name, etc.). So release "patterns" do not exist in any meaningful sense!
- If you have an LSAC.org online account, you will get your score via email/online by the score release date. If you registered via snail-mail and/or do not have an LSAC.org account, you will get your scores mailed to you, which can take an additional 5-7 business days.
- LSAC cannot tell you your score over the phone, no matter how much you beg. Calling and asking for it won’t yield results, so don't bother.
