Yep I'm similar. Mine will be in my university's law school.

For anyone who has already done this, how long does it take for stores to make the picture?


I went to Walmart (here in Canada) and they do it on the spot - they charged $20 though which was definitely too much :(

On a side note, just finally found out which room my test is in and it has real tables!! I've just been praying it wasn't one with those tiny desks large enough for three quarters of an 8.5 x 11" paper :D


Legit worry of mine. I look like an ogre in those tiny individual desks.

I think rite aid/Walmart/ cvs etc do them for like bucks down here. If you're feeling super cheap I hear you can just take a selfie. But eh.
I have another left over from June :(

Oh and Itowns, literally 10 seconds.


Thanks, I think I will do rite aid just because it's so close to my house.

I went to CVS and it was maybe 20 mins the first time. I had to go again (my boyfriend lost his passport pic right before we applied for them) and it took maybe 10 mins the second time.

What the actual f. They changed my test center.

I picked GULC, which is 1.2 miles from where I live. Now I'm at freaking Georgetown. So now I have to deal with cabbing in the morning and have to figure out where it is on the campus and shit. GRRRRR. I don't like change!!!

about 2 weeks ago i thought that i'd decide to take or not the oct test based on pt-72 which i sat for last june. i didn't discuss or dwell on any questions of the test since the real take so it was otherwise a fresh test for me. pt-72 that i took over the weekend destroyed me. i scored 7-8 scaled points below my target.

now i am in a dilemma about my lsat score level at this point. since i have two lsat scores already, i don't want to take it without reaching the target.
should poor performance on pt-72 be a clear sign?

Hopefully by Halloween. 10/28 is the tentative score release date so most likely they will come out 1-2 days earlier.
Need to finalize my PS while we wait for our scores.

I dropped from a 166 to a 160 from pt 71 to 72 respectively.

Granted, 166 was my highest score ever but still. 72 can sneak up on you..maybe take another PT and see how that goes?

As soon as possible. I'm above median at everything but HYSC, and PS writing will start when the test ends (and a few beers). I'm in a weird spot with fee waivers though, so I may be stuck waiting longer than expected to get them submitted.

Is PT71 considered a hard test? -14 to 170 seems kinda high?


it may be better to not know the answer to this question before taking the test. knowing in advance may make the test not fully blind and affect how you approach it.
