Proctor before the first section begins (can't rip/separate something that I couldn't see):

"Does anybody have scissors?" (pauses for 2 seconds) "Wait, you're not allowed scissors. You BETTER not have scissors!"

Proctor decides before writing section that we should put our erasers under our desks because LSAC hates eraser marks on the writing sample ("They keep bitching to me about it." Her EXACT words). Some dude asks, "What if we need our eraser for the scratch paper?". Proctor looks at him for a good 10 seconds, poker face and replies: "It's scratch paper, why would you need to erase anything? Smartass!". Then she grins and says, "You guys are going to report me, aren't you?"

Honestly, best invigilator I've had for an exam, ever.

Unless they are from whatever shitty state that school is in, why does this shock you.

Random Girl: "Ok, so we're not allowed to go back to another section, but can we go back and change answers within the section we're working on?"
Proctor: "Ummm, can you repeat that?"
Random Girl: "Like say I'm working on #16 and want to go back to #15 because I think there's a better answer?"
Proctor: "Do you mean can you change your mind and erase your answers?"
Random Girl: (smiles) "Yes!"
Proctor: "Yes sweetie, you can erase."

Proctor: "5 minutes!"
Guy sitting next to me: "Oh god, oh god, oh god...!!!" (he's on 17/27)
Proctor: "Shhh!"

Today I set next to a guy who I felt was crushing me in every section. Not only did he use highlighters for each section, he would finish with about ten minutes left and slam his pencil down to let us know he is beyond this shit. At this point I am clearly feeling bad about myself - like wow, I am busting my ass to finish this section on time and this guy dicking around on his watch with extra time. After the test, I asked him how he prepared for the test to a point where he can work at that incredible pace. Then he answered "Oh I only pick two games, two passages and 13 questions I like the most and don't bother with the rest." WHAT DO YOU MEAN DUDE. IF YOU HAVE TIME LEFT WHY WOULD YOU NOT LOOK AT MORE QUESTIONS, OR EVEN RANDOMLY BUBBLE IN THE REST. YOU ARE JUST GONNA SIT THERE AND CHILL? The lesson of the day: not everyone who takes this test is like the folks on TLS.

Why were you watching other people during your test?

But LOL at only doing half the test. You'd max out at like 150 at most with that strategy.

Whats so crazy about this? The only people I know who actually know where Vanderbilt is are all college football fans, and only know it because of that. I'm from the Northeast, and to the average person up here, we recognize the name, but most people would have no idea exactly where the school is.

"I really want to get into New England Law..."


"My top choice is Northeastern. I want to be a public defender."


:shock:

Also, girl next to me looked like she filled in D for half of the test. Thought for sure she was going to cancel but seems like she's gonna go ahead and let it ride. Oh wellz.

The funny thing is that this bias is one of the reasons Nashville is such a great place to live. To all of the unbearably rude people zooming and road raging around the road and trudging through the snow back to the rat holes they call apartments ("Northeasterners"): please, keep thinking Nashville is awful and never come here. We do not want you.

During instructions about the test: When the time is up for the section, you cannot go back and bubble in any answers or make any eras-erasur-erasING marks". She also could not say "zip lock bag". Instead she said "baggies". And there were a couple more words the proctor could not read aloud. I giggled in my head.

Us from NJ feel the same way about the rats from NYC. Lots of nice things in NJ if you leave the main highways down the center. But I just tell NYC people that its all landfills and mafia members from top to bottom :)
