Me (out loud): "OK."
Me (internally): Actually it says "write", not "write, not print", and "write" has many definitions only one of which is "write in cursive"; the assumption on which you base your argument is really weak, thanks for the LR warm up.


I like where your head's at. Hope you rocked it.

In the MIDDLE of the 3rd section, probably about 15 minutes in:

Dude: "So if this is the section I've already had, does this mean it's experimental?"

The proctor shushed him and didn't respond. He surprisingly didn't get kicked out. In retrospect, if he was going to break the rules and talk during the exam, why did he wait 15 minutes into the section? That was bizarre.

I have a few....

June--one of my proctors had really saggy boobs and I moved my pencils away from the edge of my table as she approached for fear they would be knocked over. (No I am not kidding.)

October-- I sat near the check-in at the front of the room so I was able to people watch. This guy comes in with his bag full of snacks. I counted like two huge cookies, a bag of ritz crackers, candy bars, and some other food items--absolutely ridiculous. And he is carrying a HUGE bottle of water, like liter-sized. The proctor politely tells him that the water bottle needed to fit in the bag to be allowed into the room. He holds the bag up, and holds the bottle in front of the bag to show that the bottle could fit in the bag if the bag didn't already have stuff in it. Um, no sir, sorry. The proctor told him he would have to put the water in his car. So he leaves and comes back, and proceeds to make snide comments to the proctor about how the seat he wanted was taken, and if he wouldn't have had to leave he could have had the seat he wanted. Life's tough, buddy.

There were several fans of a despised football team present in my test room. Their game was scheduled to begin at 2:30 and apparently they all thought they would still be taking the LSAT during the game, because they requested score updates from the proctor (of course she said no). We were released at 1:15..... :roll:

And finally, why do people feel the need to bring 10 pencils? I kid you not this guy had 10 pencils on his desk. ???? I mean, I guess whatever makes him feel comfortable.....

Maybe I'm just neurotic, but I brought 8 or 9 pencils with me. I like using a new one for every section, plus a separate one for bubbling in all my name info and writing the thing on the back of the answer sheet, and then an extra one or two in case the lead breaks.

What can I say? I just really like sharp pencils. :lol: And I don't want to waste time with a pencil sharpener. (alternatively, I'm just fucking crazy...this may be the more logical reason XD)

I had 6 or 8. It's a lot easier to diagram LG really small with a sharp pencil. I hate dull pencils, and only use mechanical for daily use.

I was at a law fair the other day with a speaker panel...

the girls behind me were the annoying "Daddy will pay for my law school" types.

One of them said, "The median is 155? Actually, it just means you need to pass the LSAT to get in, 150 is like the passing score. I bet I could score 165 easily since I have a 90% average and 165 outta 180 is like 90%."

I had two boxes of Ticonderogas, so two dozen. I'd rather have more than less, and I didn't bother with a pencil sharpener.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Why do I love this one so much? A presumably healthy guy in his early twenties is conferred genius status not in spite of, but because of the fact that he is wearing adult diapers....

Only the LSAT... (shaking head)

Guy in my room was so obese, his fat covered nearly 3/4 of the desk area. They wouldn't move him. Shit was so funny to watch.
