Terrible LSAT picture. Can you relate?

Postby Typhoon24 » Fri May 24, 2013 6:29 pm

Rushed. Didn't know what I had to do. Super bright flash. Shitty timing.

All these factors plus my general ability to suck at taking pictures resulted in one of the most horrible, embarrassing, yet kinda funny pictures of me. This ends on LSAT day, right? I don't want law schools or future employers finding this crap on their database.

Anyone else experience a comparable situation?

Hmmm, I will most certainly have a terrible picture too (wish I was as photogenic as the sloth), so interested in this.

Hm I should have clarified. When you sign up for the LSAT, you're required to print out a "ticket" that they make available on the website and take it to the center on test day. On the ticket, you have to tape or glue a passport photo of yourself from the past 6 months.

This isn't the lounge, so don't give fake advice because some people may actually believe you.

I popped my collar and opened up all three buttons to let the chest hair flow in mine. I knew on test day I'd have to break it out and cop a last glance to give myself the confidence I needed.

I could, but I am more interested in people with similar stories. I don't think my picture is that bad that I need to bust out 10 bucks just to get another.

Can we just take the picture ourselves and print it at home? Do we really have to go to a CVS or whatever?

Are there any specifics or it just has to be a head shot with a plain background? Does it need a date on it?

Other than what you said,

it must "look like you"

and be a certain size.
