At a testing center in NYC.


I got there an hour and half early and was looking for a place to do my warm up. There was a Starbucks that was jammed pack and greasy spoon diner. So I go into the diner and have breakfast while I do my warmup. A man comes in and explains to the staff that he is taking a test across the way and would like it if they could store his bag. This was in the middle of downtown NYC. LOL, as you could imagine they said no. There must have been 10-15 people with bags, phones, and other prohibited items, fortunate for them the proctors, and staff at the school, allowed them to leave it in the lobby. Although, warned that they would not be watching the items.

I almost thought I was going to get turned away on the check-in line. The picture on my ID is significantly old and I have gained quite a bit of weight. She did a double take and handed it back to me, phew. The girl in front of me came in with a fresh pack of pencils. The proctor told her she was only allowed four and needed to dispose of the rest. Meanwhile, when I get into the room the guy across the way has over 20 pencils out on the desk. I was amazed by that, I would have liked to have more than four, but I don't know what I'd do with 20.

After the break the proctor made an announcement for whomever was cracking their knuckles to please stop and that it was bothering another tester. Funny, I didn't notice this guy cracking his knuckles until after that announcement, when said guy did it probably three or four more times. This was a full on knuckle crack too, like both hands.

I brought in a full 12 pack of pencils, would have been PISSED if I could only have 4. That sounds like some bullshit the proctor made up.


Definitely BS they made up. You can have as many pencils as you want as long as they fit in your bag. I came with like 12 because I usually go through 6 for the first 5 sections. Granted can sharpen pencils if you bring a sharpener but the other reason to have extras is because someone will not read they can't have mechanical pencils and invariably freak out, see you with extras and even though that's exactly how many you need you'll have to deal with them staring at you like a beggar hoping you give them some so extras for Karma.

That is a bs rule. There are no stipulations of that sort on the LSAC official ticket package

I think they might have interpreted four pencils max from this on the LSAC's site:
"Pencils: Bring three or four sharpened No. 2 or HB wooden pencils with good erasers."

-_- interpreting advice as rules... I think they have something in common with this video that my LSAT class showed us...


Edit: the fact that what was said is stupid. Not the logical stuff.

It was either that or just an example of flaw in logic... Oddly enough the damn song stuck in my head and I used it for laughs/a bouncy pick me up when studying to get in the mood for LR sections sometimes. :oops: :lol:

Yeah that post was tongue in cheek obviously. Our proctor was pretty chill anyway so she probably noticed and didnt care

This is a sexist double standard. Down with the pencil patriarchy.

Well, you have to learn actual content to get into med school. Anyone can get into law school - they weed you out at the end, not at the beginning.

But there's no need to shout.
