LSAC First Name Concern!

Postby applebumblebee » Sat Sep 02, 2017 9:15 pm

Hi everyone.

I am concerned at the moment. So my full legal first name is "Michael Jonathan". However, I just realized that my name is displayed as shortened version: "Michael Jon" on my LSAC account and on my LSAT score reports. I believe when I made my LSAC account/register for the LSAC, I was not able to insert my whole first name.

Should I be concerned about this when I submit my law applications or do you guys think it is ok as they will match my LSAC account #?
And should I submit a name change request form to LSAC?

Thank you.

Stop worrying. Your name will have zero impact on your applications.

Thank you for your reply.

Part of me thinks it will be ok because my first name is displayed the same on my LSAC Account and on my LSAT score reports.
I'm just concerned because it's a slightly shortened version of my first legal name, which will be shown on my transcripts.

It won't matter in the least. See above re: worrying.
