In the check-in line I struck up a convo with the girl in front of me and asked her what she had done for prep. Gave a pretty standard non-TLSer Kaplan, etc. response, but then she said she had been awake since 3:30AM because she took a full length practice test before coming in. I told her she was crazy and chuckled. She said she would just do a section next time. This was her first attempt.

By the break the poor thing looked like she was about to faint.

Kind of felt bad for the guy. I'm guessing he was one of those people who considers himself intelligent, thought he could wing it, and panicked once he was drowning in LG.


Didn't see anyone cancel and leave, but one guy left to use the bathroom for most of the writing sample time and came back with about 5 minutes. Seems like a better use of time then putting his head on the desk like I saw some people doing for most of that time.


Almost did this myself.

Seen at the LSAT: someone writing for the entire 35 minutes and who look genuinely miffed about having to put her pencil down.

To be fair "Kaplan" is pretty much my standard answer in those situations too, by which I mean when I'm asked in passing or by someone I don't know. I've seen people get really mad at others who study the "TLS" way because they are supposedly "killing the curve."

IDK about you, but I don't hand write anything anymore, and when I do, it takes forever and looks awful and my hand hurts afterwords. I have no problem scribbling garbage for the written portion, but LSAC has kittens over that little paragraph so it tends to take me a good minute to finish.

wut how could he take it without the pic on the admission ticket too



I dunno bro. When the lady left with him she was pulling out her phone and they came back and he had a ticket but no photo. I've heard of people cutting up their licenses maybe he did this after the test but he took it

These stories are seriously the only good thing about the LSAT. Love these.

Also, I was dead-last in finishing my sworn statement, for the above reasons (cursive and such). Trust me, it was pretty embarrassing. I wish I could see a copy of that shit, b/c I was pretty much inventing letters by the end. I was like, "how the fuck do you make a K again?"

I thought that starting in 2010 or so it no longer required cursive. I know i didn't write it in cursive in Oct '10.

I thought that the statement on the LSAT didn't require cursive. I don't remember doing it in cursive. They still gave me a score. :D

I wrote the first half in cursive, then realized I was one of the only people still writing and printed the rest.

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. :lol:

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.

a guy asked before we started, "what's the format of this? like, 2 sections break, 2 sections break, or what?" and I was like :O

also, when we were waiting to get in a girl had her ipod and when someone was like "you can't bring that in the testing center" she was like "but I wanted to listen to it while I was testing" I don't know if she was serious or not.
