Score Validity Review

khuang5khuang5 Alum Member

I took the July test and today saw that there was "Score validity review" under the special notes column for the July test on my LSAC page. Does anyone know what that means?

I contacted LSAC and am waiting for their reply. I would really appreciate if anyone could give me some idea in the meantime. Thank you!

    I haven't heard of this and couldn't find much online, just an old post from 2015 that mentioned it and there wasn't any update of what happened. Have you taken the test before? If so, any reason to think you may have had a big score change?

    I also just checked my LSAC page, and i have the same thing in my notes section. I didn't have any issues during the test and my proctor didn't seem to have any issues either. The only thing i guess could lead to such an issue was that once i was done, the law hub page was stuck on a sending answers page and then it eventually displayed a failed to send answers page immediately followed by congratulations you're done page (i'm assuming my internet cut out momentarily). It also saved a 1KB file as well...
    I checked with the proctor afterwards and she said i was done, so im also curious as to why this has popped up

    A big score jump would be the best scenario lol. Yes I took the test twice before and I think I did better in July. I'm just worried something else went wrong.

    I'm sorry that happened to you. I didn't have that issue when I took the test. But I'm glad that I'm not the only one seeing this "score validity review".

    UPDATE: LSAC called me and told me that because of technical issues they lost my July score...they will let me take it in August.

    That sucks...I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully your law schools can understand and wait one more month.

    Law school will have started by the Aug LSAT. LSAC must rectify this situation. They are the portal to law school and they "lost" my exam. What kind of an organization is operated this way? This is 10 steps past ridiculous. No wonder law schools are starting to consider the GRE.

    Oh my I am so sorry I was just coming here to post to tell you that there are multiple people on Reddit reporting that same thing. A free re take doesn’t compensate people who had active applications out and were trying to go to school this cycle.

    Wow I am so sorry to hear about your experiences! This is totally unacceptable on the part of LSAC!

    Just listened to the Thinking LSAT podcast that came out today, and apparently a bunch of people wrote into the show about this same experience...so sad! I'm so sorry!

    Hey did you happened to hear back from LSAC about the score validity review thing? I took July flex in South Korea, and I had the same situation and got an email from LSAC telling me that they lost my test answers. Later, I got another email from LSAC saying that they found my answer on last Friday, and that they will release my score within 4 days. For some reason, they also offered refunding my test registration fee for July flex and a coupon for a future test registration. So I got my score this morning, and I got 153, which is -7 from the first test that I took without much studying. I scored 165 on my second LSAT, and I can hardly believe I got 153.
