MPRE ADMISSION TICKET WON'T DISPLAY - HELP PLEASE

Postby SFConfidential » Sat Apr 06, 2013 12:42 am

I'm scheduled to take the MPRE tomorrow morning. I paid and am registered on the correct date, etc

I'm logging into my account to try to print my admission ticket from the website. When I log in, the alerts at the top of the page say "Ticket is Available to Print" so I follow the link to print it. When I click on the link to display it, it says "Your Admission Ticket is Not Yet Available, Check Back After March 2013." Obviously, it is April 2013, so this is just wrong.

I have attempted to print it with three different computers, multiple types of browsers, and used both a Mac and a PC. It appears to just be an issue with my account.

Has anyone had any experience with this and solved it?

Obviously, I should have done this earlier, but I didn't, so save all that nonsense please.

I am having the exact same issue, and I've tried everything you have. I called technical support and left them a message. I doubt that will do any good. If anyone figures this out please reply

I've tried everything as well, also called, left a message. My current plan is to show up with the email saying my ticket is ready printed, the alert in my account screen printed, and the error message printed. They took my money back in f*cking janurary so they damn well better let me in, this is an issue on their end apparently since it's not unique to either of us.

EDIT: I've never tried this hard to get let into a test.

Okay, well, this sucks we're all having this issue, but at least it's not unique to anyone. They will have to have some sort of way to respond to this tomorrow in the AM.

Chalk up another one.

They also sent out an e-mail saying to "reprint" the ticket because of problems with incorrect address information.

This is FUBAR.

Same problem. Sort of flipping out. Tried calling and left a message but the office isn't open on Saturday so I don't anticipate hearing back.

I actually printed out a ticket and left it in my desk. I'm trying to remember the code to our security system and weighing how my boss might react to getting a call from the cops after midnight because I set off the alarm.

I'm going to be so pissed if I A) wake up super fucking early to drive down there and get turned away and thus B) have to take the damn thing after the Bar in August.

Surely there has to be a procedure for if people forget their admission ticket. We are talking about thousands of applicants, so statistically it is going to happen. It is a certainty. I cannot imagine they make you wait 5 months or whatever it is because you had a lapse in memory, or, as is the case here, their system is jacked up.

Having the exact same problem. I thought it was an error on my device or something. Anyways, I am guessing we are all going to be screwed and not have our money refunded.

No, they turn people away. I know people who took it last time that were turned away. It is just like the kids who showed up to the LSAT without their admission ticket.

forgetting your ticket is obviously a different situation. This error is on their end, not ours.

I'm worried they're going to make a fuss about this:

"It is the responsibility of the applicant to contact LSAC at (215) 504-3886 or at MPREinfo@LSAC.org if an Admission
Ticket is not available online within two weeks of the examination."

I'm in the same boat here. I accessed it a few hours ago but wasn't in a location where I could print. I imagine they set it to be accessible for a certain range of dates that either purposely or accidentally excludes today. Knowing how these things work, I'm sure we're not getting let in tomorrow, and I get to take the MPRE after the bar. Jesus.

For whatever it's worth, I'm on the west coast and it's still 4/5/13, so it's not test date yet and I am still having the same issue.

It was before midnight my time too, but it wouldn't matter if the system runs on EST.

touche.

Well, hell, there's nothing to be gained by sitting here freaking out over it. I'll check again before bed, check again first thing in the morning, and show up early and hope for the best.

Good luck everybody.

If it makes you guys feel any better, I wasn't even aware you could take the MPRE after the bar, so I had about a 20 minute panic attack that resulted in kicking my (empty) dog kennel hard enough that I may have broken my foot...

Same - I'm in Colorado and first tried to access my ticket on 4/5 at 10 pm. Clearly still the day before the exam.

If they're going to turn people away at the door, it is fucking absurd that they would take the tickets off the website even a minute before the last exam starts.

Absurd, yes. Likely, also yes.

And if it was 10 in colorado it was already midnight in New York.
