The proctors at my place told those who had phones to turn them off and put them on the table in the front of the room. They said if anyone was found to have a phone after that, then their test would be invalidated.

Less debate, more funny stories. And by more, I mean please start telling funny stories. Shit's been lame this cycle.

I wish I had a good story but the best I have is a lame:
Girl 1: what's your dream reach school?
Girl 2: I'm really hoping I score high enough for CUNY Queens because it's the best school in the country for social justice law.


One girl also refused to remove her hat. It was really awkward. We all watched as she privately talked to the proctor for three minutes. She finally removed her hat but kept trying to put it back on after the sections only to repeatedly get told to knock it off. She was also the only person who forgot to write that little certifying statement paragraph so we all had to wait for her to do it at the very end of the test.

Harvard bound. ...But actually.

I agree. Boring stories this cycle. I guess less idiots are taking the test. Shame.

btw, law school is all about extracting and applying rules
i have a feeling she's better off having not taken it

I don't know where this girl took the test, but from taking the MPRE in Evanston (riding the CTA an hour up from Chicago), it's a really uncomfortable feeling to travel around a big city on public transport without a phone. I'd argue that it's potentially unsafe and that turning a phone completely off should be plenty good for LSAC.

Small town girl here, but don't the stations usually have some kind of lockers?

Maybe an amtrak station, but the CTA is just the subway/elevated train and bus system in Chicago. The stations don't have amenities.

This happened at my TC - this really big black dude had a hat on and the proctor, while we were lined up outside the room for check in, asked him to take it off. Dude looked at him and said "Yo, hop off my nuts, I'll take it off when I get inside."

He never took it off.

I tried to tune out some of the side chatter during break and line up. Nothing really crazy happened this time.

When the proctor asked if anyone had any questions before we began, a guy in the back asked "Are you going to announce when we have 5 minutes left?" And this other girl yelled out "OMG!! That's an excellent question!!"

Which I guess it was but like :roll:

Two frat bros in front of me during lineup before entering the testing room:
"Dude, if there's a God please let the games all be just sequencing."
"Yes bro, that would literally be the best thing ever".

Then once in the room a man probably in his 40s in a leather jacket who was already seated, and who felt the need to talk to just about every person who passed by him in line, engaged in a discussion with said frat bros (who continued talking about how hard and annoying the LSAT is) about looking into schools that don't require the LSAT at all. To them joking that you would have to go to school in the Caribbean or something if you didn't take the LSAT, he impressively started listing US school after school that did not require it. He then said, better yet, that some states don't even require a JD at all. As if I wasn't already curious as to what this man's life story was and what led him here, this certainly added to the mystique, and also added the question, why the eff is this dude sitting for the test that he's clearly convinced is unnecessary?

Anyway, I found it to be all pretty amusing and it actually helped me relax as I waited to be checked in.

Moving my watch close to her would totes change my setup, which she knew, and I wasn't comfortable with that. Everyone should just make sure they bring their own stuff for the LSAT *shrugs*

I've been lurking this thread for a while but I need to contribute because my TC was a shitshow.

1. There was a large group of friends all taking it together and this one girl asks, "Do you know how much time there is in between sections? I wasn't sure so I've been practicing with 5 minute breaks." The other people in the group weren't sure…

2. Didn't even start checking in until 8:50 and the old man checking our ID was making small talk with everyone. "Oh you're from city x, ya know I've been there with my wife before and loved it!" "Your hair looks different, what made you want to change your style?" Took forever to get everyone in the room…

3. Dude in line was wearing a Power Balance bracelet. The proctor asked the guy what it was and why he was wearing it. "It helps me balance." :shock:

4. We are all finally seated by 9:15, and before the main proctor guy started reading all of the official LSAC rules, and before we were given our packets, the old proctor guy decided to lecture us for 10-15 minutes about cheating. Holy shit.

5. Main proctor is reading the directions and tells us that there will be a 15 minute break after section 3, and the older proctor asks him when the second break is. They go back and forth for FIVE MINUTES arguing about whether or not there is a second break during the test.

Starting the test at 9:30 sucks :/

You both are what's wrong with law students. No fucking sense of anything outside of yourself and your own weird little phobias.

I wouldn't want anyone looking down at stuff in my desk area, and I wouldn't want to move my watch over far enough that it might seem like I was looking over at their desk area. Too many of the proctors are retarded and would throw you out for cheating.

B. Assumes that sharing one or two of many pencils is equal in potential detriment to LSAT performance to making one's watch more difficult to see during the administration, especially considering that proper time management is the most important part of doing well on the exam.

Poor analogy. Too many relevant differences.
