I used to write in cursive so beautifully, but high school changed that. I had a humanities teacher my freshman year who did all of his lectures extemporaneously (he'd been teaching the same stuff for 30 years, so he didn't need lesson plans, obviously). He gave no handouts, didn't write anything on the blackboard, and he never repeated anything. Needless to say, the only way to pass the class was to write as quickly as possible--and cursive didn't lend itself well to that situation.
Essentially, this is just a long-winded explanation for why I was one of the people who took five minutes to write that LSAT paragraph.
To be fair, writing it was probably the only thing I did correctly on the exam. The rest was a miserable blur.
I was so emotionally traumatized by the first three sections that I didn't eat or drink anything at the break. As for things overheard, I unfortunately don't have anything exciting to share. I did overhear a girl laughing about bubbling "all B's" for most of her sections due to time constraints. Before I took the LSAT, I would've rolled my eyes at her and thought, "wow, SOMEBODY didn't study," but I ended up doing the exact same thing.
If anyone hasn't heard of the "thousand yard stare," I suggest you Google it now. That was me on Saturday.
