Registered for an upcoming Law School Admission Test, but still have a few test-day questions? Below are the most commonly asked questions by candidates prior to taking the LSAT.
If you have a question that isn’t answered here, please contact LSACinfo@LSAC.org or call 215.968.1001 to speak with a representative. We encourage you to call prior to the actual test day if at all possible, as call volumes on test day are naturally higher than other days.
We look forward to seeing you on test day!

What if the name on my identification does not match my admission ticket?
For the test, your first name, last name, and date of birth presented on your identification must match the information presented on your admission ticket.
To make a correction, you will need to complete and sign a Biographical Information Changes form (PDF). Please note that corrections to the file must contain your signature and all requests must also include a copy of your ID for verification purposes. Requests received without a copy of your ID will not be processed. You may scan and email your request to LSACbio@LSAC.org.
What if I do not have a Social Security number on file?
If you do not have a Social Security/Social Insurance number or you do not wish to provide one when you register, a number is assigned to you in place of it. Please note that all assigned numbers begin with 999. The number will be on your admission ticket because you will need to enter it on your answer sheet on the day of the exam. You will also use this number on your law school applications when asked for your SSN/SIN.
If you would like to have your SSN/SIN added to your account, please use the LSAC Biographical Information Changes form (PDF), and scan and email your correction to LSAC. All corrections to the file must include your signature. All requests must also include a copy of your SSN/SIN for verification purposes. Requests received without a copy of your ID will not be processed.
You may submit your signed request and a copy of your SSN/SIN card via email to LSACbio@LSAC.org
What is my test day reporting address?
The admission ticket contains important information for test day, including your reporting time, reporting address, test center instructions, and test center procedures.
To access the admission ticket, please sign into your LSAC.org account and select the View LSAT Registrations & Statuses button located under the LSAT Registration section of the home page. Once on the next page, you will see a Print Ticket (PDF) link.
Please be sure to review all of the information provided on the admission ticket as well as the additional information sheets printed with your ticket.
How long is the multiple-choice portion of test day?
The LSAT multiple-choice exam consists of five 35-minute sections. Four of the five sections contribute to your score. These include one reading comprehension, one analytical reasoning, and two logical reasoning sections. The unscored section, usually referred to as the variable section, is used to pretest new questions or evaluate new test forms.
Please note that there is also time needed for the check-in process, test instructions to be given, and test materials to be passed out and collected. You should anticipate at least four to five hours for testing when taking the LSAT.
When will I get my score?
The score release dates for upcoming LSAT administrations are added to the LSAT Dates, Deadlines & Score Release Dates page. Please note that score release dates are subject to change, and scores may take a few hours to reach all test takers on score release day. Scores will be released to the schools to which you have applied at the same time they are released to you.
Can I bring my mobile phone on test day?
Please do not bring your mobile phone to the test center on test day. Also, please remember to review the list of LSAT allowable items before test day. If you are discovered in possession of (or using) any electronic device, including a mobile phone, you will be issued an LSAT Violation Notice and will be dismissed from the test center. Such violations will be grounds for score cancellation, and you may be subject to an LSAC investigation.
Please note that this policy will be enforced from the time test takers arrive at the test center until they leave at the conclusion of the test — including the break. LSAC and test center staff assume no responsibility for personal items. Test supervisors and their staff are advised not to hold such items.
Additional information can be found in the LSAC Candidate Agreement: Terms and Conditions for the LSAT Test and LSAT-Flex Test.
I am running late to the test on test day; can you get them to wait for me?
All test takers must report to the test center by the reporting time indicated on the admission ticket. Please note that no one will be admitted into the testing room once the test has begun.
Will I be able to cancel my score after the test?
Beginning the day after the test, you may cancel your score on the LSAT Status page of your LSAC.org account. This option will only be available to you for the six calendar days following the test. In other words, the deadline to cancel your score online will be 11:59 p.m. (ET) on the sixth day after your LSAT date. More information is available at Canceling Scores.
I have a test day complaint; what do I do?
We are sorry for any issues that you experienced during your exam. Providing a positive test-taking experience is very important to LSAC. To inform LSAC about the problems you encountered, please submit the “Test Day Issue” form in your LSAC account within six calendar days after the date of your test.
To do so, please visit the LSAT Status page of your LSAC account and click the “Submit a Test Day Complaint” link for the administration where you encountered a problem. (You can get to the LSAT Status page by clicking the “View LSAT Registrations & Statuses” button on your account dashboard.)
In the form, you will be asked whether you’d like LSAC to address your problem as an official LSAT complaint or as feedback:
- If you submit an official LSAT complaint, we will place a hold on your file, which may delay the reporting of your LSAT score and CAS Law School Reports, pending the review of your official complaint. If you select this option, you will be able to choose whether to keep your score or cancel your score at the conclusion of LSAC’s review of your complaint. If LSAC’s investigation confirms your complaint and you decide to cancel your score, you will receive a coupon to use for a future LSAT. (Please note: If LSAC does not confirm your complaint, you will still have the option to keep or cancel your score at that time. However, you will not receive a coupon to use for a future LSAT.)
- If you submit feedback instead of an official LSAT complaint, we will not place a hold on your file and no additional options (e.g., extension of the cancellation period, or a coupon for a future test) will be provided to you.
