Guess I'll be emailing the organizers to get some clarification.
If I have to fit my lunch in a quart ziplock with pens and stuff, I'm going to be a very hungry and distracted Rink by the end of the 8+ hours the whole day will take.
IL told us to bring a 2-1/2 Gallon Ziplock bag so we can fit our laptops in there. I didn't even realize they make a bag that big. Oh, no pen or pencil allowed. 45 min lunch break. No food, drinks, candies (including cough drops).
I guess we're just supposed to balance our laptops and cords and external mice and drink and quart-sized bag and hope we don't drop anything vital. A larger bag would solve so many problems! The LSAT allowed a gallon bag, at least. (I think the MPRE too, right?)
Oregon mentions quite a few prohibited items kind of scattered around amongst the other paragraphs of exam-day logistics, but no comprehensive list of what we CAN and CANNOT bring in. Their description of the test itself (question types, scoring, etc.) was similarly scattered. I want to smack whoever wrote everything up because they're an idiot.
