Important LSAT test-day rule change

LSAT photoAttention June 2011 test-takers and beyond: LSAC has chagned their admissions policy. Starting in June, students must bring along a passport-sized photo of themselves. Here’s the official policy from the LSAC site:

In addition, all candidates must attach to their ticket a recent photograph (taken within the last six months) showing only the face and shoulders. The photograph must be clear enough so there is no doubt about the test taker’s identity, and must be no larger than 2 x 2 inches (5 x 5 cm) and no smaller than 1 x 1 inch (3 x 3 cm). Your face in the photo must show you as you look on the day of the test (for example, with or without a beard). The photograph will be retained by LSAC only as long as needed to assure the authenticity of test scores and to protect the integrity of the testing process.

Yet another item to be taken care of well in advance of the test date. Note, however, that you should not shave your study beard the morning of the test.
