Hahaha seriously? Based on all the evidence in this thread, law schools may be getting off lucky if this stops you from applying to law school.

Do us all a favor and grow up a little bit before you come back to this (or any) thread and grow up A LOT before you show up inside a law school classroom. If you can't handle this, there is no way you'll be able to handle it come exam time.

OP, have you been asssuming the identity of people who died at birth? Has LSAC discovered that you are a Highlander?

Yeah, the solution for this is so straightforward and simple that OP has to be trolling.

I really, really thought the username meant "bareback sex exclusively."

Just because they don't have a form for it doesn't mean they can't verify your age. Take them your passport, ask them to write on a piece of school letterhead something to the effect of "our records and the government issued ID presented by Joe Schmo indicate that his birthday is Jan 1, 1992." Include a copy of your passport photo page. See if you can get it notarized if you really want to go nuts.

And calm down.

First, I already went to the rigistrar, and she said the school doesn't provide that kind of service. Second, my graduate certification already has my birthday and the year of attendance. I really have no idea why the committee wants me to send something that doesn't even exist. I can't believe I'll never have a chance to get into law school because of this.


Kiddo, you're overreacting. I went to college at 16 and while I haven't received anything from LSAC... These posters are right. Go to your registrar, be super sweet, and ask if they can whip something (really just anything) that says you are the age stated on the official documentation. Keep in mind it is the registrar's job to help you (as best as possible) get the documentation for further education. Be polite. If going to the registrar isn't helping, email the dean or the person in charge of the registrar's office and explain the situation to them.

Don't give up just because they are telling you no.

Can't emphasize the "be super sweet" part enough. If your requests in person are anywhere near as defeatist and whiny as your posts here, it's hardly surprising that you've gotten nowhere at the registrar's office. It's a crucial life skill that a lot of us don't learn until we get older, but now's a great time to learn it. When dealing with people in institutions, your attitude and presentation will make a huge difference in the treatment and results you get.
