LSAT: Day of Test Procedures

OK September LSAT takers — the test is this Saturday!! Of course you have been studying diligently and are ready for what is coming on the LSAT. But don’t forget — the LSAC has a list of procedures that you MUST comply with in order to be allowed to begin and complete the exam.  Here they are in brief.

To be eligible to take the LSAT, you will be required to have with you at the test center the printout of your admission ticket that includes the photo that you uploaded through your LSAC online account. Admission tickets that do not display the required uploaded photo will not be accepted on test day. You must also bring a valid, government issued photo ID and 3-4 sharpened sharpened No. 2 or HB wooden pencils with good erasers. Mechanical pencils are prohibited.

The LSAC has a list of LSAT test day prohibited items that includes cellphones, electronic timing devices, digital watches, fitness tracking devices, headphones and many others.  NOTE: LSAC has adopted a no-tolerance policy with regard to the use or possession of electronic devices during the administration of the LSAT.   Consequently, if you are discovered in possession of (or using) any electronic device, including cell phones, you will be issued a Violation of Law School Admission Test Center Regulations form and will be dismissed from the test center. Such violations will be grounds for score cancellation, and you may be subject to an LSAC investigation. This policy will be enforced from the time test takers arrive at the test center until they leave at the conclusion of the test—including the break. We strongly urge you to review the LSAC’s rules for the day of the test, to avoid making a critical mistake.  The LSAC’s test day rules can be accessed by clicking on this link.

Other important considerations:

  1. LSAT Registration Withdrawal: If you do not feel ready to take the September exam, you will be able to withdraw your registration on the LSAT Status page of your account. This option will be available until 11:59 pm (ET) the night before the test. If you withdraw your registration, you will not receive a refund. You will be required to pay the full registration fee if you register for another test date. The LSAC explains this process here
  2. LSAT Score Cancellation: Further, if you take the LSAT and you feel that the test has not gone well you have the right to cancel your score, either at the test center or within 6 calendar days of taking the test. The deadline to cancel your score online will be 11:59 pm (EST) on the sixth day after your LSAT date.
