LSAT's choice of recycled paper = crapola

Postby ThrobbinMonster » Thu Jun 10, 2010 7:56 pm

Let me beat you to it:

"cool story bro"
"waaaah"

With that out of the way, I did my myriad practice tests on pristine white paper booklets published by the LSAC. Then I go to take my first LSAT for real real.

Turns out that mug is printed on recycled paper and my pencil marks are burrrrrly noticeable.

C'mon LSAC get of your high-horse. Saving trees is nice but let's be real. The Second Coming makes all this save the Earth stuff kind of a moot point. I need to be able to see my hash marks.

Anyone else find the juxtoposition of "high-horse" and "Second Coming" ironic?

If not, I'll laugh quietly to myself...

I agree with you, the recycled paper is a little different to write on and harder to erase....
Wasn't there some sort of "pencil" thread on here right before the test? Maybe the choice of pencil used was a poor one?

Does The Second Coming make all this LSAT stuff kind of a moot point?

This troll is completely terrible except for the use of "crapola" in the title.

....But yeah, the paper threw me for a loop, too. I just pushed harder.

At least you can see through the next page to prepare for what type of section it is.

I sliced through the super crap-o paper with my ticodongra pencil while diagramming one of the games. It was a little distracting.

But yea its harder to see your marks on the crappy paper, but its not really a difference maker.

Hahahaha god, exactly.

And as for that STUPID PENCIL THREAD, I read it the night before the LSAT. Consensus was that the ticonderoga's were by FAR the best. So what do I do? Go out and buy a shit-ton of them. Come test day, I had to change pencils 6 times because they all became dull, and I'm afraid my score is ruined because when I went to erase the erasers all were AWFUL and left marks. Just kill me TLS.

Although I had a tough time determining whether the next section was RC or just a batch of particularly long LR questions. (Turns out it was the latter.)

On one question in RC, 2 answer choices were slotchy and missing words. I was already running behind in time so I didn't tell the proctor for fear of wasting MORE time. Sweet job L-SACK. :twisted:
