I feel like I'm waiting in line for a roller coaster right now. (I hate them) my stomach has that same kind of anticipation anxiety.

What are you September test takers doing to keep calm?

    I'm not a September test taker, but might I suggest a book? Anne Applebaum's newest book comes out tomorrow. "Red Famine: Stalin's War on Ukraine" For my money, Applebaum is the greatest American to ever take on the subject of Soviet history. Seriously, worth a read.

    Currently having "fake" panic attacks every time I check my email and see that today is NOT the early release day I want it to be. I have a full time job right now, which helps. Have you watched Daredevil on Netflix? I'm not very much into graphic violence, but something about the well choreographed fight scenes is incredibly satisfying.

    I feel this - 'Gulag: A History' was legit.

    I'd recommend putting all LSAT and law school stuff out of your mind for now . . . for example, ignoring 7Sage . . . until you get your score. This is really, really important on any potential grey day.

    @"Alex Divine" i love running! The air quality in Northern California is shit right now with these fires though, don't want to give myself a headache from the smoke...

    Good advice, impossible to live by. I know as soon as I logoff the notifications will roll in, and then I won't get to anxiously count down the minutes until my own page goes grey! Not to mention the emotional roller coaster of hearing the scores of all you saints! That's better than Christmas and also hell on earth, edge-of-your-seat drama!!!

    When will the scores be out? I checked online it said Oct. 12 but do they release them early morning? And do you need to log into LSAC to see them ?

    They can release any time from now until Friday. The time is unknown, the date is unknown.

    What will happen is the green icons on the LSAC website will go grey hence the name "grey day" once they go grey the LSAC will begin to roll scores out. They don't all come out at once but are spread out in batches over a couple of hours!

    Yes, you will receive the scores through email. But some people just keep refreshing their LSAC profile until they get the score (before they get the score via email).

    Do you guys know if the icons go grey at a consistent time in the day with scores rolling out from that point on (e.g. on most release days, icons turn grey at 9 am)? If the icons haven't gone grey by noon (or whatever arbitrary time) can we safely conclude that it is not grey day and live another day in peaceful, ignorant bliss?

    All goes grey at once and then roll out scores after.

    No, scores have been done as late as 8pm

    Right! When I see grey I'll be checking back throughout the day.

    But what I meant is specifically about the time when everyones icons go grey. Is the time when this happens consistent and known? To clarify, have past "grey days" had the icons go grey at a certain time, which we can expect our icons to also go grey?

    I ask so that if I know the icons turn grey around 10:00 am (let's say), then I can give up refreshing my profile for the day after a certain point and remain semi-productive for that day

    Generally it's between 4pm and 6pm, but has been slightly earlier. If no one is grey by 6pm, you can probably leave your computer for the day.

    I did not write the September LSAT, but this is what I plan to do after the December LSAT:

    1. Hangout with family and/or friends! Do everything you couldn't do because you were chained to your desk while preparing for the exam.
    2. Exercise! Exercise is my favorite way of getting any nonsense off my mind. Bonus, it's good for you, mentally and physically.
    3. Try to learn a new language or skill! There are lots of free online resources for learning a new language. I plan on using Coursera.

    Goodluck, I'm sure you killed the LSAT!

    Uruguay is great for biking. The roads are good, and not a lot of traffic. There are a lot of world class teams that use the roads to train. I would definitely recommend. Good luck, and remember to go to the beach! Punta del Este is lovely, but it's very Miami Beach. I prefer Piriapolis o Cabo Polonio. Both are like going back to San Diego in the 1960s.
