Here is an old email chain between me and lsacinfo@lsac.org:

From me:

Hello, I called earlier today and the representative directed me to this email. I'm wondering if any of the following watches match your new watch requirements for test day:

-Perfect Score Watch Version 4
-Casio Men's MRW200H-7EV Sport Resin Watch
-The 180 Watch

Thank you for your help.

From lsacinfo:

Thank you for your inquiry to LSAC:

The Perfect Score watch is acceptable for use for the September 2017 LSAT. The 180 watch is not acceptable. Without a picture of the Casio Men's MRW200H-7EV Sport Resin Watch, it cannot be determined if the watch is acceptable.

I can also forward the email chain to anyone if you PM me an email address.

I really don't want to be negative or come off as counter-productive. I think the other guy is actually quite smart given his posts in this forum (that I have read). I just think he is getting a little convoluted in his semantics, and I especially cannot understand why he would cast my mechanical definitions aside as irrelevant when they are at the heart of the discussion. They weren't word play, they were necessary. The word "chronograph" needs to be mechanically defined and made distinct from other mechanical parts before we can start arguing about what watches are which.

My thought exactly.

It's probably a caution thing, which is why they wanted him to directly send them a picture instead of the LSAC person googling stuff and potentially saying a watch is fine when it's a diff watch or something. Who knows lmao

Aren't you the guy that claimed the LSAT made you smarter than all your friends, and then went on some rant about classical music...? I don't see how buying a watch makes someone aspie?

IDK, man. I rented mine for $20 and it gives me peace of mind and also practical quantitative data. It's efficient. It doesn't take a weirdo to use one. Kind of weird to develop a pseudo-boycott against one, though.

Didn't claim the former, and their was no rant lol. Someone misunderstood my wording about the latter, just to be clear. If you can't understand what aspie means in this context you won't understand why buying an LSAT watch is, either.

You certainly claimed that the LSAT made you smarter. And stop being an ass about people who want to use a special watch.

How much of a jerk do you have to be to use aspie as a derogatory term? Not cool.

I called LSAC. Unfortunately, for me anyway, no one at LSAC can conduct dialogue constraining the definition of their term "chronograph watch," at least not in any comprehensive way. The method I was referred to was to use email and ask about specific watches for permission. I am interested in having the watch confusion clarified once and for all, but LSAC's only path to clarity is so inefficient that I have lost motivation. Anyone else can pick up where I left off.

Aside from my own interests, that's a part of the reason I asked this question in the first place. I imagine a lot of people are confused.
