Should set up a stand outside the ztesting center as folks go in, you'd make a killing.

When I sat for the LSAT I didn't even bring a sharpener. Instead, I had nearly 50 presharpened pencils.

Nice, that's one pencil for every two bubbles you fill in or alternatively a good supply to conduct a quick and profitable pre-test swap meet while waiting in the check in line.  A couple of bucks a piece per pencil from people that forgot to bring enough or brought a mechanical pencil instead and you could have recouped part of the test registration fee.

That could really be a profitable venture. 

According to the LSAC test day rules:

Quote
Items Allowed on the Desktop

Test takers may only have tissues, ID, wooden pencils, erasers, a pencil sharpener, highlighter, and analog (nondigital) wristwatch. No electronic devices are permitted. No timers of any kind except analog wristwatches.

Noting the plural use of 'pencils' it appears that the rules allow one to bring in as many pencils as you can fit into a one gallon ziplock bag and one could make a killing selling more during the break.

Matthies, it was probably a typo but you got me laughing in a good way to start the day.  I read your post as 'zesting' center, like the soap. 

http://www.zest.com/

Their slogan is currently "Zest cleans life's dirt"  and I thought it fit what test day is all about pretty well!   :D

I actually considered this. It's amazing how many people fail to read the regulations before the test.

My buddy and I talked about this at the bar exam. There was only 1 restaurant with in like 2 miles, so people stood inline forever, We are thinking of going in feb set up a taco cart, sell beer after the end of second day, have pencils, asprin, sodas, wahetever. Pay off our student loans since you know us T2 grads donít ever get jobs as lawyers

What's next? Naked testing?  Make everyone strip down in one room, then proctors issue each person a few pencils and a towel to put on the seat of their chair as they are herded one by one into the testing room?

Especially with that new "embarassment surcharge" that the bar tacks onto your accreditation.

Matthies, I recommend looking into the lucrative occupation of "pizza man".
