Lewis and Clark, c'mon man. Didn't you learn about them in history class at any point?

A dude brought his pencils and a small pencil sharpener in a gallon container. Not a gallon-sized ziploc. It looked like an old gallon of milk. :shock:

Has this ever happened before?

Pretty sure you can't hear someone misspelling a school name out loud.

It seemed like half the people at the Binghamton test center were trying to decide between St. John's and Hofstra.

Also, that school has more Asian kids than the University of Tokyo.

If by "International Law Program", they mean a law school where you can get decent takeout International food (e.g. Italian, Chinese, Thai, Ethiopian), they are likely better than most.

So far, the October LSAT takers have not produced.... Perhaps this means a -6 curve?

During break, people having a discussion about if the writing sample is 30 or 35 minutes. I say "guys... just write something down in 15 minutes it really doesn't matter much."

Kid corrects me and tells me "well, I don't know where you want to go, but I was at a UPenn informational panel and they said they read it and it's a big part of their decision!"

I looked around the room when there was like a minute left for the writing sample, the kid was still writing...

A guy said that the questions on June tests are much more difficult because the testmakers assume that students won't be studying for Uni courses, and therefore will be studying more for the LSAT than they would be in October or December, when apparently the tests have much easier questions.

He was also retaking a 143.

I heard a few good ones.

One question a kid asked was "Does guessing on questions penalize our score? Like, will we lose more points for guessing?"

I think my favorite one though was "I feel good. I study about 3 days for tests in my business classes, so I started about 1 and 1/2 weeks ago. I'm pretty sure I'll pull a 175 or above."

I was pretty amazed at how so many LSAT takers couldn't even bother to find and follow the most basic rules like not signing their admissions ticket before entering the room and making sure their photo is glued/taped onto their ticket.

It kinda made me angry right before the test knowing how many of these people didn't belong in law school and would, if they somehow made it in, come out of it with some massive debt that they would never fully repay and become a burden on the economy. And for what? Because they watched a little too much tv and thought law school would turn them into a james bond type lawyer?

Long time lurker, first time poster.

I had a girl ahead of me in line at check in at UCLA say "I originally thought there were two Logical Reasoning sections, but then I realized one is always experimental...that means it doesn't count." I had to convince three people in line who got very concerned that she was wrong.

She also said she knew "plenty of lawyers who make lots of money who told (her) the LSAT doesn't matter because you don't have to go to an ABA school to work in California." She said she currently attended UCLA for undergrad.

I LOLed when a girl tried to bring her backpack in the room, and continued to try to persuade the proctor to let her keep it with her...

Didn't correct her, just the panicked people in line behind me. I thought I was a slacker only doing 15 PTs. Most of the people in line had only seen Oct 2007 because it was free.

ETA- My proctor also held at least 5 cell phones of people who "forgot". One even asked if he could use it at break.

helping the competition is a risky strategy
