Sign the screen with a sharpie, the new LSAC site can sense and record the motion.

Can you just type in your name? I know when i've had to sign stuff online before that's what I did, haven't finished any apps yet though.

Many of them don't even have a box to type your name, just a spot for the date. If you can put your name, do so; if you can only put the date, then just put that. The act of logging into your account and then dating and submitting the application will serve as your electronic signature.

Hmm, act of doing all that might indeed be considered a signature, but one part from the 203 Blog of Yale confuses me; it was something like Michael Phelps applying or some other celebrity, and Asha was talking about she would add the electronic signature to her autograph collection. So there seems to be something more tangible, but I do not know how.

She wrote about what she would do in the hypothetical situation of a celebrity applying to Yale.

What LSAT would Michael Phelps need to get into Yale? I'm thinking a 156.

Yes, Asha likes to joke.

Anyhow:

Electronic signatures are a certification by you that may be used in lieu of a written signature. By taking some action, such as clicking a button or typing your name, you are electronically certifying a document you would physically sign if it were on paper. Some schools will not accept electronic signatures; these schools use certification letters that you must print out and sign physically. Once you click Continue after previewing the application, the options and requirements for that school will appear on the following screen. Make your selections from the available options. There will be a link to the certification letter only if one is required for that school. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete your application transmission process.
