URGENT - LSAC Photo Deadline - Sept. 2017

Postby TrunksFan1 » Sun Sep 10, 2017 3:43 pm

Hey all, so I had only recently been taking practice tests. I'm comfortable with the score I'm getting in PTs, and I really want to apply this cycle. December has always been in the cards, but since I'll be starting a new job soon, I would have liked to get applications out earlier and then submit that December score later.

After deciding that I definitely wanted to take it on the 16th today, I found out about this photo requirement deadline of August 22nd, which it says is necessary for my ticket. Has ANYONE ever had luck calling into LSAC and getting around something like this?

What does the requirement actually say? When I took it (2010), you just had to bring a passport type photo with you to the testing center - that was it. It didn't matter when it was taken (as long as it wasn't an very old photo).

These days you have to digitally upload it. I'd just call and ask, they're usually accommodating on registration things.

"The photo that you upload through your LSAC online account must meet the following requirements, or you will be denied entry to the test center."

[Note: Starting with the June 2016 administration of the LSAT, you will be required to upload your photo when registering. You will not be able to complete your registration until you have successfully uploaded your photo. Your admission ticket will not be issued unless your photo has been uploaded.]

That date was August 22nd... and now when I try to click on September as a registration, it doesn't allow me to because there's no photo submitted. Really, REALLY bummed out right now.

I think you should definitely call them first thing tomorrow to get it sorted out. It's probably the most direct and accurate way to get your answer.

No dice so far. Going to roll them again tomorrow.

The deadline for registering for the September LSAT was August 2nd. The late deadline was August 9th.

I am confused. Did you previously register and then forget to upload a photo? Or are you simply trying to register now?

The deadline for LSAT registrations is basically six weeks before the test. Remember that for December.

If you don't have a photo uploaded by now you may be SOL unless you can call and get an exception or get a VERY lenient proctor.
