So disappointed in this thread! What funny things did people see?

There was one guy at my school who threatened to leave the test because the proctor wouldn't let him bring in his overcoat. As in, "I'm going to just go if you won't let me!" Proctor: "Um...that doesn't really affect me much, son..."

I think the major difference is that UG stafford loans have very low limits, so most students who are in debt from UG either have cosigners or have parents who took out ParentPlus loans. In that case, the adults in the situation are, and should be, responsible for not doing the research ahead of time.

Also, the snark directed at the lolproles ITT is generally obnoxious and stupid, but chastising people who go six figures into debt for a worthless law degree isn't uncalled for.

Random girl: (yelling from back of the room, before the instructions started) There’s a buzzing noise over here!
Proctor: …blank stare… What?
Random girl: A buzzing noise. I can hear a buzzing noise coming from the ceiling over here.
Proctor: …okay.
Random girl: Well, can you do anything about it?
Proctor: …no?

At this point, everyone realizes the girl’s talking about this faint buzzing noise coming from the fluorescent lights. I look around and almost everyone is staring at the lights with a look of “…wtf…” on his/her face. It’s really quiet as the girl and the proctor are just kind of staring at each other, and someone breaks the silence with: “Well, thanks for pointing that out,” because now the buzzing is super noticeable to everyone.

So the girl decides she needs to move seats because doesn’t think it’s coming from the lights, but she’s a lefty so the proctors go out of their way to rearrange things for her. She sits in her new seat for maybe thirty seconds, staring at the lights again. Then she blurts out: “Ok you’re right it’s just coming from the lights. I’m going back to my old seat,” and goes to her old seat.

Everything settled, the proctor starts going through the instructions. When she reads the part about the five minute warning, the same girl pipes up again and tries to demand a one minute warning as well. The proctor says she won’t do it because it’s not in the instructions, so the girl tries to appeal to the masses and asks if anyone else wants a one minute warning. Everyone just kind of stared at her and said no.

Not the funniest, but it was still pretty amusing.

There's always that one person.

There was a lizard in my testing room. The proctor caught it with her bare hands and put it outside.

Not "overheard," per se, but certainly unexpected.

During the writing section I was sitting with my legs tucked under me and when I tried to re-position I fell out of my chair. Pencil and test slid off my desk. Pretty embarrassing.

This was from a while ago, but I forgot about it until now. When I took the test in June, the test proctors were giving one girl a hard time because apparently her passport photo and the photo on the ticket didn't match at all, and the ticket picture looked like a 10 year old girl. Then as they were looking at the ticket, the proctor noticed she had a grocery bag under her desk. She looked through it and the bag was filled with LSAT prep books. Needless to say, she was asked to leave. As the door shut and she was escorted out, one guy stood up and said, "Alright, one down, 24 to go!" It was kind of a terrible thing to say, but it broke the tension in the room so everyone started to laugh a bit.

This time around, the only things I heard were multiple complaints about not being allowed to have cell phones (we were in a lecture hall so it took a LONG time to check everyone in) and desires to get drunk once the test was over.

Guy sitting next to me tapping his feet on the ground.
Me: Could you stop tap dancing please?
Guy: Sorry.

I heard a few people say things along the lines of "Wait you had 3 LR's?!?"

It wasn't lulz worthy but it made me smile. I get the impression from this thread that this sort of conversation post-test is fairly common.

Proctor: If you need to go to the restroom during a section, just raise your hand.

Girl Next to Me: I would rather pee myself than leave in the middle of a section... [turns to me] I WILL pee myself before that happens. Just warning you.

Hilarious that she admitted this to a total stranger, but I think if we were all honest with ourselves we all would agree with her... or maybe that's just me.
