So I can deduct LSAT, LSDAS, application fees, etc.?  How can I prove all of this?

Well I have all mine on one credit card...never knew I could deduct just happened to mention it to my accountant when he was doing my taxes and he said.."yup you can deduct it all...I ran my numbers and gave it to him....ask your accountant.

Edit: I deducted LSAT, LSDAS, APP FEES, TWO LSAT PREP COURSES, ALL THE BOOKS AND MATERIALS I BOUGHT FOR THE DAMN EXAM

I really don't know anything about accounting...I keep a spreadsheets of all  my expenses cos of the type of work and business I do. Didn't know that lsat and yadadayada will be deductible..but I kept all the expense on one card cos I wanted to track how much it cost me to get into law school...so when he was doing my itemization or whatever accountants call it...I told him I spend so so and so trying to get into law school and he said yeah I can deduct them all....so I gave him the figure don't know if it really made a difference on what I owe uncle sam..but I know it reduced my income by $3720

Is there a certain income level that you have to fall under to be able to deduct all this stuff?

WfP- no, I think it works for everyone (theoretically, if you feel under a certain income level you would get fee waivers).
