LSAT Engine Strategy Blog

Here’s a list of everything you should and can bring on test day:

Clear (1 Gallon) Ziplock Bag

  • This is an LSAC rule, and everything you bring must be in the bag.

LSAT Admissions Ticket

  • Print this out a few days in advance--late enough so that you’re up-to-date on any room changes, but not so late that you risk having a problem due to an unforeseen internet outage. Do not wait until the night before or the morning of the test.

Photo ID

  • You will not be admitted unless you bring a valid form of ID
  • LSAC’s list of acceptable IDs can be found here

Analog Wristwatch

  • This is crucial, as you are only guaranteed a 5 minute warning by the proctors and your testing location may not have a clock.

#2 Pencils, Pencil Sharpener, Eraser, Highlighter

  • No pens are allowed
  • No mechanical pencils are allowed


  • Always good, just in case

Food and Drink

  • You may want a snack during the break before the last two sections
  • We suggest something light: granola bars, fruit, or crackers are safe bets.
  • The drink must be in a plastic container or juice box (maximum size: 20 oz/591 ml)
    • No aluminum containers are allowed

Feminine Hygiene or Medical Products

  • If you think you may need this, you are allowed to have this in your bag


  • We suggest wearing layers, since you can't be sure what the temperature inside the testing center will be

Leave your phone at home! Do not bring it into the testing center.
