Are earplugs allowed in LSAT?

Postby LSATNightmares » Sun Jun 06, 2010 2:30 pm

When I was looking at my LSAT info booklet, there's no mention of earplugs being allowed in the test center. However, I have read in informal settings that earplugs are allowed. Do earplugs count as medical/hygiene products? Thanks!

you can bring tissue though, which can work as earplugs. Being able to focus > looking goofy.

Thanks so much. How did I miss that? That does not bode well for reading in detail on the LSAT tomorrow! :-)

I asked LSAC a while back and they said you CANNOT use the tissues as earplugs... not surprising considering once you use something to plug your ears they become earplugs

Probably legit, but I think that it would slow you down in other areas. I honestly never thought that the testing sites were so noisy that I needed to do anything like this.

I could see that being a problem bc the proctors might think your hiding illegal earplugs in your ear and then covering them...

Also, does your finger become an ear plug if you put it in your ear?
