The June LSAT is Monday, June 8, which is only five and a half weeks away. What should you be doing both now and on the day of the exam? The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) provides the following checklist. As always, if you have any questions about LSAC’s requirements contact them directly at (215) 968-1001 or by completing an online form which can be found here.
- Check your ID –
- Is it an acceptable government-issued ID as stipulated at LSAC.org and on the LSAT Candidate Information Sheet (pages 3-5)?
- Is it current (or has it expired within 90 days of your test)?
- Does it contain a recent, recognizable photo?
- Does it contain your date of birth?
- Do your first and last names match the names on your LSAT Admission Ticket and your ID exactly? Corrections must be submitted no later than 5:00 PM (ET) on the Friday before the test.
- Obtain a passport-type photo (no larger than 2×2 inches or 5×5 cm and no smaller than 1×1 inch or 3×3 cm). The photo must be a different photograph than the one on your government-issued ID. You will not be admitted if the photo on the admission ticket is the same as the photo on your ID.
One week before the test:
- Obtain a clear, plastic ziplock bag (maximum size 1 gallon/3.79 liters) to contain the allowable items. Go here for LSAC’s list of allowable items.
- Update your email and mailing addresses if necessary at LSAC.org.
- Print an updated LSAT Admission Ticket from your online account to ensure that you have the final and correct reporting address for the test center.
- Check the school’s website and print directions and a campus map.
- Review the list of items allowed in the ziplock bag. Read pages 3–5 of the LSAT Candidate Information Sheet and read the Test Center Regulations at LSAC.org.
- Report to the test center no later than the reporting time indicated on your LSAT Admission Ticket. Take only page 1 of the Admission Ticket to the test center. Leave this checklist and pages 3–5 at home.
- Do not take any prohibited items or electronic devices (including cell phones) to the test center. Possession and/or use of such items is grounds for immediate dismissal from the test.
