Any chance this is just a system bug and it'll work itself out before morning? I am in Washington, D.C. and I am having the same problem.

It should be fixed in the morning. If it isn't, I'm sure LSAC will be responsive. If not, we have pretty strong evidence here that it was their mess-up, and should be able to coordinate a response to ensure we don't have to take it in August.

I'm just hoping for the 73 bucks back if they don't let us in. This is outrageous

I'd go to bed, just wake up a bit early and try tomorrow morning before you leave.

There's no way I am going to be able to sleep. The idea of having to explain to my firm why my bar license is delayed scares the hell out of me. Then again, would someone taking the bar in Virginia have an MPRE score before bar exam results if forced to take the next MPRE?

Pretty sure you can take time without any problem.

Except for the fact that we're all applying to different state bars who uniformly require an MPRE score, so no coordinated response can really happen.

I called their tech support line and left a detailed CYA message. I would encourage anyone who has not done that to do so.

"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, too, am unable to vie my ticket.

"Check the admission ticket in your online account the day before the test to see if there are any changes to the test center reporting address."

This statement was part of my registration confirmation.

I am so furious. I even looked at my ticket a week ago to make sure it still matched up with my information, but figured, "why print this now? I'll just print it before the exam when I am getting all my things together." Is it even worth going to the testing center? They are SO ridiculously explicit about not admitting anyone without a ticket. F. Any words of support much appreciated.

I'm paranoid about this sort of thing so I always just use "print to pdf" if I'm not at a printer. Not that this is of any help now when you can't even generate the pdf, but it's definitely a helpful tool to use in the future.

I'm going to go to the testing center- early. I'm going to hope there is someone who can get someone on the phone and maybe do something. Then, if I'm extraordinarily lucky, I'm going to take and fail the MPRE because I've been up all night stressing.

I am having this issue too. I surely hope that we are able to take the test above anything else. However, they could at least refund us our money if they should decide that we can't (which I again, hope doesn't happen).

Literally nothing to lose by going. If you stay home, you clearly don't get in and you're stuck taking it in August when you'd rather be drunk on a beach in Europe somewhere on your bar trip. Go early, be persistent, point out that you accessed the ticket in advance (which is what the exam administor's online language said we're responsible for doing...ensuring it is available online and you checked and it was), and then when you went to print, it was not accessible. There's every reason to go.

Also, I don't know if this will end up helping, but it might be helpful to ensure you have your NCBE number or whatever that acronym is. That likely will be how they can look you up, if that is possible.

Would any of you East Coasters mind posting what happens if you can when you show up tomorrow? Might help us out here that are a few hours behind if there is anything we can do at that point. Much appreciated!

Does anyone know what time the actual exam starts? I am in the Midwest (central time). Is it the same across the land?

Chalk another one up for it not loading. You know that they are going to give us the old "it's your fault that we messed up" game.

There seems be to quite a few people with this problem though. I just think their policy is fuck you.

I think 9? My ticket says to show up at 8:30. I'm on Eastern time though. I doubt they'd make people in California show up at 5:30 AM though so I assume it's a 9 AM exam for everyone.

Its 830am where ever you are. Accordingly people on east coast can report in results live.

EAST COAST: give us updates on results!
