I Screwed Up; Please Tell Me What To Do!

Postby TennesseeJed » Fri Oct 05, 2012 10:10 pm

Hi,

Somehow, despite going over the LSAT Checklist weeks ago, I overlooked the section regarding the ID, or at least one of the sub-sections, which clearly states that your ID and LSAT Admission Ticket MUST match exactly, with regard to first and last names. I'm an idiot, and did not realize that my legal printed name on my ID, "Joseph," does not match with "Joe" on the LSAT Ticket. I am now going to get their early, along with my passport, and hopefully be able to to take it.

Am I totally screwed, or do I have a viable shot at still taking it tomorrow? If the former, what do I need to do to cancel, etc.?

Cannot believe this is happening...

I think you'll be fine. Please Do Not Quote This:
No problem at all. You'll be fine. Calm down.

Good Luck!

I'm 99% you'll be fine. It's not like anyone will be like, "Hmm, Joe eh? There's no way I could get that from Joseph. Can't take the test today, bud." It probably won't even register in the proctor's mind.

I took mine as Desert Fox even though my ID says Desert A. Fox II. Unless this rule changed since 2009 (DAM was it really that long ago!?!) you should be fine.

i read you can call lsac in the morning of the test and square it away with little hassle. call them, but if you cant talk to them before dont not go to take the test
