Choking on the Law

LSAC.org–the LSAT and law-school application mothership’s website–has been unreachable all morning. I’ve been trying without success to log on since 6 am to submit a recommendation. It’s a small inconvenience to me; I’ll rely on Plan B, the U.S. Postal Service. I imagine, though, it is deeply frustrating for thousands of anxious law-school applicants. I’m curious about the cause–overload from those hoping to get their score for last Saturday’s exam? Or from those canceling their score?

  1. Nice weblog here! Also your website a lot up very fast! What host
    are you the use of? Can I get your associate link
    to your host? I want my site loaded up as
    fast as yours lol

  2. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4
    year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely
    off topic but I had to tell someone!

  3. Hey there would you mind letting me know which web host you’re
    using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different web
    browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot
    faster then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider
    at a honest price? Cheers, I appreciate it!

  4. It’s amazing to pay a visit this website and reading the views of all mates about this piece of
    writing, while I am also eager of getting familiarity.

  5. Professor Randall,

    I hope all these students who are applying to law school today realize the high costs of receiving a legal education. Many students do not realize the reality of the legal job market  today and the loans that they will have once they graduate from law school.

    On the bright side, I am glad to be connected to you on LinkedIn. I was a former student of yours from 2006 to 2007. As a recent law school grad (2011), I would gladly talk to any of your students who are interested in law school and give them another point of view.

    Hope all is well.  I was not able to make it to my 5 year reunion at BU but would love to speak to you again when I am in Boston.

    Best,
    David Lu

  6. I think it was likely caused by the thousands of students trying to log in at once to get their score. You know how people can be, refreshing the page until their score pops up. It can cause the site to crash.
