Getting into the LSAT is going to be harder than getting through airport security with a gallon of gooey liquid strapped to your back.
Some of the rules:
1. All candidates must bring to the LSAT test center the following: (1) your unsigned LSAT Admission Ticket. At the test center you will provide your signature at the check-in table. (2) one current, valid (NOT expired) government-issued ID. (3) Three or four sharpened No. 2 or HB pencils, with good erasers.
2. You must take to the test center one current, valid (NOT expired) government-issued ID containing a recent and recognizable photo and your signature. No one will be admitted into the testing room without acceptable identification as outlined at LSAC.org. Acceptable forms of ID include passport books and government-issued driver’s licenses. US military personnel may present their US military ID card containing their name, photo, and signature. Government-issued employment IDs, Social Security/Social Insurance cards, birth certificates, credit cards (including those with photo), passport cards, cards used in Canada for health care benefits, expired IDs, employee cards, photocopied IDs, and student IDs are NOT acceptable as IDs for the LSAT. Your first and last name on your ID must match exactly the name on your LSAT Admission Ticket. No one will be admitted into the test room without acceptable identification.
3. Test takers may bring into the testing room ONLY a clear plastic ziplock bag (maximum size: 1 gallon/3.79 liters) containing ONLY the following items: LSAT Admission Ticket stub, valid ID, wallet, keys, hygiene/medical products, No. 2 or HB pencils (no mechanical pencils), erasers, pencil sharpener, a highlighter, tissues, beverage in a plastic container or juice box (maximum size: 20 oz/591 ml), and snack for break only. All items must fit in the bag such that the bag can be sealed.
4. Prohibited non-electronic items that test takers may not take into the testing room include, but are not limited to, the following items: books, dictionaries, rulers, slide rules, compasses, mechanical pencils, briefcases, handbags, backpacks, earplugs, and papers of any kind. Hats/hoods may not be worn on the head (except items of religious apparel).
5. Test takers may have only tissues, ID, LSAT Admission Ticket stub, No. 2 or HB pencils, erasers, a pencil sharpener, highlighter, and analog (nondigital) wristwatch. No electronic timing devices are permitted. Beverage and snack are NOT permitted on the desktop and may be accessed only during the break.
6. Scratch paper is not permitted for any of the five sections of the test, nor may pages or parts of pages be torn from the test book. You may, however, use the blank spaces available in the section on which you are working for any notes or diagrams you wish to make for answering a test question.
The one thing I really want to know: will they not let me in if I have two or five No. 2 pencils? And what if the erasers suck?
