I wouldn't.

Caffeine makes a person jittery and might make you have to pee. Just drink a juicebox of OJ and have a sip of water during your break.

Mental stimulants containing B vitamins and Taurine are strictly prohibited during the lsap. You will be breathalized and caught.

I had a friend do a five second flow of whiskey in the parking lot before the test, and later during the break. Needless to say, he got a 180.

yup, as long as it fits in your ziploc.

although I did it for the october test and seriously regret it. unless chugging a red bull is something you're used to doing daily, then i strongly advise against it. I got super jittery and anxious and ended up choking... hence, I'll be sipping a RelaxZen during the break tomorrow.

Items Allowed in the Test Room
Test takers may bring into the test room only a clear plastic ziplock bag, maximum size one gallon (3.79 liter), which must be stored under the chair and may be accessed only during the break. The ziplock bag may contain only the following items: LSAT Admission Ticket stub; valid ID; wallet; keys; analog (nondigital) wristwatch; medical or hygiene products; #2 or HB wooden pencils, highlighter, erasers, pencil sharpener (no mechanical pencils); tissues; and beverage in plastic container or juice box (20 oz./591 ml maximum size) and snack for break only.

http://www.lsac.org/JD/LSAT/day-of-test.asp#allowed


If your Red Bull comes in a plastic container, you should have been fine. Otherwise, it would be prohibited. As the test was already administered, this is more of an FYI to other test takers on the board.

If you want it, just take it with you and ask the proctors when you're checking in if it's ok. The worst thing that could happen is they have you throw it away.

You could always take a water bottle, dump it out, get a funnel, crack open the redbull and pour into the water bottle the night before. Sure, it'll go flat, but were you really bringing a redbull because you wanted a nice fizzy beverage?

I had a red bull in my bag for both the October and December tests and no one cared. I only drank a little bit of it and got a drink from a water fountain. just take a pee during the break and you're fine. You only have to make it 70 minutes because you can easily go for a break during the writing sample.

Your fellow test takers will thank you for getting a 140. By all means, drink the bull.

Yes. And if you operate better with a caffeine boost (most people tend to), chug away. I'd recommend a 5-Hour Energy though, since it probably contains a comparable amount of caffeine in a smaller quantity of liquid (it's also sugar-free). A full bladder will make Section 5 torturous.

Can't anyone on these forums just answer the damn question without going on some stupid tangent about things that don't pertain to the original question at all? Or put up the rules and regulations from the website just to be a pompous ass.

Simple answer to your simple question:

YES, you can bring in Red Bull, however I would suggest pouring it into a 16.9 oz clear plastic water bottle.
(Look at that, one clear and decisive sentence to this person's question)

That's exactly what I did during the December LSAT. My water bottle was like 20oz though, but I removed the label and they didn't say anything.

Huh? This is TLS buddy. Membership is comprised mainly of egotistical overachievers that need to be heard. Just answering questions isn't enough...off-topic rants are necessary.

Get it together.
