The Law School Admission Council that conducts LSAT every year has some very clear rules and regulations when it comes to the items that you can and can’t bring to the admission center. If you are going to take the LSAT, I have divided these items into a list of things that you must bring with you, that you can and should bring with you, and things that you shouldn’t bring with you to the test center.
What Must You Bring To The LSAT Test Center?
There are some things that you are going to need to bring to the LSAT test center so that you are allowed to take the exam, prove your identification, and do the test. Here is a list of things that you must have with you.
Where there are some things that you need to prepare well and score high in the LSAT, there are some things that you need to be allowed to sit in the exam. The first thing that you must bring with you is the LSAT admission ticket. I recommend that you print it the night before the tests so that it has the most recent test center information on it. Where last-minute preparations are not always ideal, testing centers can change at the last minute, so you need to do it as late as possible without it disrupting your schedule. Once you have taken the print out, make sure that you check the address and check out the best route you can take to reach it. Moreover, ensure that all the information on the ticket is correct and according to the LSAT requirements. Once you have the print with you, keep it in a place where it is easy to find so that you don’t forget it the next day.
On the test day, you are going to need at least one form of identification. It can be any valid government-issued ID that is not expired, have a recent or recognizable photo, and your signature. You must also ensure that the information on the ID that you are taking with you matches the information on the LSAT admission ticket. For example, if your first or last name doesn’t match on both the documents, you will not be granted access to the test center. Acceptable forms of ID include a valid passport, driver’s license, or any government-issued ID card. It doesn’t include your social security card, insurance card, birth certificate, employee ID, credit card, a student ID, any photocopied ID, or an ID that has been expired for more than 90 days.
Lastly, as you are required to write on your LSAT paper, you must bring something to fill out the paper. I would recommend that you bring 2-3 sharpened HB wooden pencils with you so that you can easily take your paper.
What Should You Bring To The LSAT Test Center?
In addition to the stuff that you must bring with you, here there are some things that you can take with you to make things a lot easier for yourself. You may enter the test room with a clear plastic zip-lock bag so that you can keep some important things within. However, the size of the bag must not exceed 1 gallon or 3.79 liters. Once you enter the exam center, you may place the bag under your chair. Your zip lock bag can contain the following items.
- Your ID
- Hygiene Products
- Beverages or snacks that can be consumed in the break
What Shouldn’t You Bring To The LSAT Test Center?
According to the LSAT rules and regulations, there are some items that you can’t bring to the exam center. These items include:
- Cell Phones
- Mechanical Pencils
- Bags (other than zip lock)
- Ear Plugs
- Electronic Devices
- Non-Analog Watches
- Weapons or Firearms
- Paper other than IDs
- Recording Devices
