They come back and say that LSAC told them to resume the test, but walk around the room through the last section to see if they can locate the so-called device and then remove that person. I happened to be in the back row so I alone knew when they discovered the cause of the "vibrating". It was the fucking air conditioning vent turning on and off. Needless to say, they did not make an announcement of their findings.

Guy 1: Man, I remember the LSAT, that shit sucked. My goal was 155, I was getting low 150s on every practice test. Then test day came, and bam, 147.
Guy 2: Yeah, that sucks, but you got into law school, so whatever, right?
Guy 1: Yeah, barely!
Guy 2: Well it doesn't really matter anyway. All these fuckin' idiots, spending all this fuckin' money to go to UCLA, USC, Berkeley, are so retarded. Next year, I'm gonna have the exact same degree, know the exact same stuff, pass the exact same bar exam, have the exact same license as they do, for way cheaper.

One of the guys I met and talked with a bit at the February test left an impression. He was retaking, and was working on some LG in the hallway before the test, chatting with people a bit.

Just before we go in, he takes the battery out of his phone and sticks the phone & battery in his sock. Pretty funny. He also walks in carrying one of those big ass tubs of yogurt for his snack. The proctor tells him it's supposed to fit in his bag, and he says to her, "I can pour it in if you really want me to." She said "no that's alright" and lets him in. I was cracking up. During one of the short breaks between two sections I looked back and he was just casually eating yogurt.

He let me use his concealed sock-phone after the test, which was cool.

Nothing else interesting happened. I'm retaking in October, so I'll try and get there early and overhear some shit.

I really wanted her to keep pushing the issue, and for him to just smile and pour his yogurt into his bag all over the rest of his shit.

Seemed like the type of kid who really would have done it, too.

At my testing center I was walking around in front of the room before we went in to get the blood flowing.

A group 4 girls came around the corner, two of which were holding plastic bags. Two went to the bathroom. Two stayed outside. Then we all started to go into the room. The two bathroom visitors came back out and someone was like 'hey, they're letting us in now." Two of the four go, "Oh, we're just LSAT moms for today. These two are taking the test."

Then they started posing for photos outside the test center with their baggies. "Everybody say 'LSAT'!"

Puke.

Lol, seriously. They weren't even assigned to our test room and ended up having to run out and find the correct one...with maybe a minute to spare before 12:30. Too many photos. Too little time.

I distinctly remember some Princeton kid sitting by me when I took the test last year. We were chatting about the prep we did and he was putting me down because I took a course and spent quite a bit of time doing self-study. He said something along the lines of "Dude, this test requires no actual knowledge. Its all logic, which is something I'm good at already. So I didn't study for this."

...And he got up in the middle of the test and walked out. Guess he wasn't as good at logic as he assumed he was.


Hahaha fck that kid.

Me and a friend from my prep class were sitting and eating our snacks during the break when this guy comes up. We talk to him for a bit and he tells us this is his 2nd time taking the lsat and he is hoping to improve enough to get into a particular school.....

So I asked what did you get last time

He says "131"

Oh man I felt so bad for this guy but what can you say?! And he seemed totally oblivious to how bad of a score that is. We just wished him good luck and tried to talk about something else.

Dec 11 test.

Older lady comes into test area with her giant bag of pencils. I understand this, I also had more than a handful of #2s. She proceeded to stuff them into her shirt/bra, pointy end up. The proctor asked "Are you sure that is safe???". I don't remember her response, but she took the test with a dozen of them sticking out of her shirt, ready to puncture her face.

:shock: :shock: What is even the point of that??? It's not like they're easier to reach that way. WTF.

I don't know, I think she might have been on to something. Having all 36 of you perfectly sharpened pencils in your shirt prevents you from having to worry about accidentally knocking them all off the tiny desk in the middle of an LG section.
