I didn't hear anything spectacularly amusing at my first jab at the LSAT, but one kid was a nuisance.
We had to wait in line to get into the general testing area, and proctors were checking our ziploc bags and making sure we had what we were supposed to have, and NOT stuff we weren't allowed to have.
One kid gets pulled out of line because he had an electronic timer.
Proctor: no electronics.
Kid: but this isn't electronic, it's battery-operated.
Proctor: then, no battery-operated electronics.
Kid goes and leaves it in this big room we had put our backpacks and such in, then comes back.
Proctor: Take these out, too. (referring to earphones and what looked like an ipod shuffle, or some sort of MP3/4 player type gadget)
Kid: But I won't be using them.
I didn't hear the rest of this conversation for some reason, but eventually, he put those away too and finally gets inside the testing area. Apparently, he would be testing in the same classroom as I -- joy!
I'm waiting in line to have the proctor check my passport and exam application and he's pulled out by his arm from the testing room for having a freaking iphone in his pocket that he took out in the classroom. Classroom proctors were different from the earlier proctors that had to deal with him before, else he would've been in some serious trouble. He has to go back out of the testing area to put his phone away.
I heard from him one last time when, after break was over, we were showing our IDs to get back inside and he left his passport in his backpack, located outside the general testing area, during break, even though we'd been specifically told to keep our IDs on us as they'd be checking for those before resuming the exams.
The proctors were not happy with this kid..
Also, the girl behind me asked for a new sheet to write her essay on which was denied, so she spent a frantic minute erasing everything - a considerable amount from the amount of scrubbing and desk creaking I heard. I'd finished my essay already and was drawing cartoons on the scratch paper...
