Hi everybody,
I am taking the Feb. 4th LSAT this weekend and had a few questions, and i haven't had a chance to ask anyone else. So, I've heard we are not able to bring much anything into the test room with us, is anyone familiar with what EXACTLY we can bring? Am I to bring a sandwich bag with pencils and erasers in to, thats it?
What is on the ban list that a student normally would take to class with him? For example, can i take my backpack? My cell phone? A calculator (just asking).
Thank you my LSAT fam :)

    Here is the link to LSAC's exhaustive list of Do's and Don't's on the day of the test:

    http://www.lsac.org/jd/lsat/day-of-test

    Scroll down for the items allowed in the test room, on the desktop, what is considered PROHIBITED ITEMS (backpack, cell phone, calculator...), rules, regulations, blah blah blah.

    All the best on Saturday!

    Thank you ScooterMinion! Final question, do you know if i have to print my LSAC ticket in color or can i print it in black in white? The ticket that has a picture of my face on it that I need to take with me in order to be accepted into the room.

    Sincerly,

    AJ

    @ajmulakel Do not sign the form ahead of time. This can cause problems on testing day. I had to reprint mine because I was trying to get all my ducks in a row and signed it without reading.

    Black & white is fine.

    And yeah, basically anything that isn't explicitly allowed is banned. So if it's not on the list of approved items, don't take it!

    Thank you for saying that...I did the same thing earlier today. So, I just reprinted my ticket.

    it's supposed to be in a gallon sandwich bag right? I have 6 pencils, a chocolate bar as a snack, and a pencil sharpener in it currently. Are we supposed to put our wallet in there too?

    Everything should go in your gallon ziplog bag, including your ID. You should definitely get a bottle of water, and you might want to bring another snack. I just had a protein bar and was starving by the end of the test when I took it in December. Good luck!

    if i have chapstick in my jacket pocket, will they make me throw it out? My lips get chapped super easily! do they make you empty your pockets? I can bring in hats/mittens/scarves right?

    They do not make you empty your pockets. Best to put the chopstick in the plastic gallon bag. Where I took my lsat they had a place where you could hang your coat. You couldn't bring it in the test room.

    @johanna586 you can put your chapstick inside your ziplock bag
