Are we allowed to use the Perfect Score watch for the December LSAT?

Postby damask_rain » Thu Nov 09, 2017 3:36 pm

From what I understand we aren't allowed to use a chronograph watch, but can anyone confirm that the Perfect Score is ok? I am thinking of calling just to double check, but I wanted to see if someone already did that. Thanks!

In September I didn’t bring mine because I was nervous about it, but the girl in front of me got in with it so it was fine at my testing center!

There were a couple people from the September study group who emailed LSAC and they said the perfect score watch is fine. Its fine. If you really want to make sure, email them as well and you can even bring that to your testing center

From the official website of that watch

No need to solve math problems in your head to figure out how much time is left in each section.


The math problems in question here is adding 35 to a number between 0 and 59, and subtracting current time from the result regularly. Totally worth going to the exam with a watch that clearly shows you are unable to do these.

I brought one on June's test, and the staff didn't allow me to use it. I took the test at Pace University test center.

What did they say? Did they let you use another watch? I took it in September and it was fine with the proctors but this scares me

Yeah what did they say exactly? I guess I'll take another watch just in case.

Heads up, I'm pretty sure the rules also say to only bring one watch to the testing center

Can't I just discard whichever one they don't allow?

They said that it's still a timer, and we're not allowed to bring a timer.

Thats annoying. LSAC has actually approved it via written communications several times to many ppl on this forum
