It is going to be my first time LSAT...The report time is 12:30pm...wondering how long will be the waiting time/instruction time while sitting in the room before the test actually starts...any ideas?

    I remember from the horrible days of SAT/ACT, the proctoring at the beginning took a long time (bubbling in name, other biographical info). I'd estimate 30-45 minutes.

    Hey see this discussion for a potential answer to your question: It sounds like waiting time varies.

    I've heard from tons of folks between a half hour and a hour. So be prepared for both! :)

    Yeah, 30 minutes to an hour typically, although there are horror stories of much more. The best thing is to be the first one to the testing center and the last one into the testing room. Once you're admitted into the room, you won't be allowed to leave until the test starts, even to use the restroom. So minimize your wait in the test room, just be sure to be there with plenty of time to spare.
