Complaint about LSAT fingerprinting

The Law School Admissions Test now requires a fingerprint from the person being tested. I assume that this is to make sure that you are the person actually writing the test under your own name, rather than a ringer. Now, the BC Information and Privacy Commissioner and the Federal Commissioner are dealing with allegations that the practice is an invasion of privacy, but there are fears that the print and other info will find its way into the hands of US law enforcement under the USA Patriot Act.
