ID?

Postby shemori » Fri Oct 08, 2010 6:15 pm

ALL MY major documents have my name misspelled ...will a learners permit suffice?( I know lsac has guidelines but it only seems to mention driver's license)

Isn't a learner's permit just a printed piece of paper?

Well first, this is something that if true should have been taken care of long in advance rather than 15 hours before the test. Second, I find it hard to believe that every major form of ID that you have has your name misspelled. See if you can change the name on your admission ticket to match. If you can't then start praying that you get proctors who don't care.

There's really not much advice anyone could give you that isn't on the LSAC website. Sorry.

My name is misspelled on all my major forms of ID. I changed my Admissions Ticket to match. Weeks before the exam.

I feel like this could cause some issues for you down the road.

I thought this was going to be a thread about insurance defense.

What kind of issues are you imagining? It's never really been a problem. I mean, I got into the LSAT just fine, LSAC has processed my transcripts. It's a really minor discrepancy in the spelling of my first name. I'm actually considering having it legally changed next year, but I didn't want to be changing my name and applying to law school at the same time, you know?
