Dumb, last minute questions

1. Is there a limit to the number of pencils we can bring to the testing center or have on our desk during the test?
My mom gave me a weird look as I sharpened my ~20 pencils and I double-checked the guidelines which say we "must bring... (3) three or four sharpened No. 2 or HB pencils, with good erasers." I take it that this doesn't mean that we can ONLY bring 3/4?

2. Does chapstick count as a "medical product"? :P
Seriously though, I'm kind of addicted to it. I jokingly say that my greatest LSAT success wasn't (finally) getting -0 on Logic Games or (finally) breaking 170, but rather managing to go an entire section without putting on chapstick. I can definitely live without it tomorrow, but it'd be nice to have it on me...just in case.

Like I said, these are dumb questions and I'm not stressing over them. But it'd be nice to know now vs. tomorrow.

Thanks and good luck everyone!

    20 pencils seems really excessive lol. But I've brought in a pack of 10 pencils before and it wasn't a problem.

    As for the Chapstick, I would say that it's ok. But if you don't wanna risk anything, then don't bring it.

    Chapstick will probably get you arrested by the proctor... I'd slap on a thick coat of Bag Balm or Carmex and call it a day...

    I know this isn't much help now but maybe for future test takers.....before the exam the proctor had everyone put their chapstick in the front of the room or in the trash saying it was a violation...good ole LSAC.
