Are we allowed to drink during the test?

Postby yezzir » Wed Dec 08, 2010 2:29 am

Not alcohol for all the funny people out there.

I'm asking because it says on the LSAC website that "Food and drink of any kind may not be taken out of your ziplock bag in the test room. Food and drink may be taken only during the break."

The email that LSAC sent out last week about test-day preparation says we can only eat at break but doesn't say anything about drinking. Does anyone who has already taken the test know the answer to my question? It's fairly important to me because I usually drink a bit of 5-hr Energy to focus up for each section.

Thanks in advance for any responses, and gl to everyone on Saturday.

Oh Ho Ho, you found a flaw in their reasoning!

Haha, and I'm 99% sure the poster above me is a dirty liar, or just wrong.

During break time is when you can rehydrate. You cannot have your ziploc bag on the desk during the test or between sections, it must be beneath your desk or work area during the test.

you might get lucky. My proctor was very lenient and let us drink whenever we wanted.

haha nah dude i'm a veteran when it comes to these things. probably gonna drink a whole bottle before and then another bottle (or at least half) at the break.

another Q i have is how long is it until you start section 1? If the test time is officially at 8:30 a.m. what time can I expect to actually start the test? I guess since this is my own thread I have the right to derail as I please 8)

:lol: drink during the break; imagine being in the middle of a problem when someone starts slurping on a thermus.
