If it meets the size / quality requirements I would think it would work, and I'm pretty sure LSAC does not send it to law schools. Although if you were convicted, the law school would see it anyway, and if you weren't, I'm not sure why you would want to be circulating the mugshot to anyone at all.

It will, as long as it's the right size. I've gotten my picture from CVS for all three LSATs. They didn't have a problem with it the first two times.

In all seriousness, your mugshot picture is probably okay as well.

Could just be my particular Walgreen.

The place didn't have a passport sized picture. Everything was either too big or too small.

I have a passport sized photo of myself I took using their guidelines. That should be good right?

Yeah. Dudes, this is the wrong time to be asking these kinds of questions.

Correct. The best time to worry about this is after midnight when it will be difficult to find a 24 hour CVS or Wallgreens with someone on duty that knows how to work the photo counter.

For anyone in doubt about whether or not they have an acceptable photo, it only takes a few minutes to get a passport photo taken and printed at a CVS or WallGreens or other place with a photo counter and costs less than $8. I don't recommend waiting, but there is plenty of time to get it done in the morning before going to the test center for the super procrastinators.

It's better now than tomorrow, but still. Maybe I'm just super paranoid (I've visited my test site, printed out 3 copies of my ticket and put one in my car and also have extra photos), but I'd rather this stuff be done a week before the exam than the night off. I feel like everyone should be relaxing right about now. You know, watch some b-ball, grab some dinner, get a good night's rest.

I hear ya, this topic shouldn't even be an issue the night before the test for responsible prepared test takers, but there are always those few people that like to play with danger and wait till the last minute to get basic stuff together. Plus, there are those other people that don't yet even know they cannot use a mechanical pencil that may not even print the admission ticket and test day rules until morning that might read the rules while waiting in line. People at big test centers will see some of those people, look for freaked out people arguing with proctors. :wink:

Don't forget the "Oh shit, I signed the ticket" when it says in bold "Do not sign this ticket prior to the test."

Similar question. I'm just wondering if my mugshot is ok even if I'm wasted as shit in it? Will the proctors mind?




I just really want to use a picture of me after a victorious fight to get me pumped.

Well, the rules say that the photo is supposed to show you the same way you look on test day, so I guess if you get drunk and get into a fight tonight or in the morning before the test and don't shower you should be a-ok checking in with that mugshot.
