What to Bring on Test Day???

What to Bring on Test Day???
« on: July 09, 2004, 07:06:17 PM »
1) I registed online, I printed out a LSAT admission ticket (Actually, I printed 3 copies just in case).  I will be finger printed on the ticket at the test center, but should I sign it at the center or sign it before arriving?

2) Driver's license, Several pencils, a watch, eraser.

3) There are several different opions about bringing a bookpack containing drinks and snacks??  What do you guys think? 

4) Anything else that I might be missing?

Check your ticket a couple days before the test. Some times they change time or location.
Don't forget to bring your brain.  I'm told you'll need that.

I took a backpack with the usual stuff as well as a snack, water, and a jacket

Jacket is definitely a good idea, although you Minnesotans are used to the cold.  I've lived in SoCal my entire life, so 65 F is freezing :o)

Take a mini pack of Kleenex just in case too.

Also, I would buy a timer if I were you, instead of using a watch, so you don't have to calculate how much time is life.  There's a whole thread about timers on this board:

http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,4530.0.html

If you do decide to buy a timer, don't forget to cut the sound cords or otherwise silence the timer.  I'm really paranoid, so I also took along my tiny little screw driver in case the cords moved around inside the timer and ended up touching again, which would make them beep.  I also took along extra batteries just in case the brand new ones I had just put in died.

I had to park in a lot that charges for parking, although they opened the gates so you could just leave after the LSAT for free.  In case yours doesn't do that, make sure you have a couple bucks with you for parking.

Don't forget highlighters - they're allowed.

You may want to make sure that you'll be at a test center with adequate desk space. If you find out that you'll be in a lecture hall with flip top desks, I've heard you're allowed to bring in a small board to give yourself more room to work.  You might feel stupid carrying it, but if you need it by all means do it.

If you're going to be at a test center with inadequate desk space, CHANGE YOUR REGISTRATION.  Do not just bring a board.  You should have a full desk.  Check this website for test center ratings:

I disagree with using highlighters.  Just underline with a pencil; it saves less time because you don't have to switch back and forth.  The passages are so short that it's not like you won't be able to see what you underlined.
