Also, I chuckled a little when the proctor gave the message for break, specifically "may not leave the vicinity of the testing center, use any prohibited items" because I've listened to J.Y. say that during so many practice tests.


A proctor made somebody erase their last bubble.

didn't someone get into UT with a 128 or something?

I thought that was their average?

As everyone was lined up and waiting to enter, i overheard a guy turn to another taker and say "wait, so does necessary got to sufficient or sufficient to necessary?"

Saw a lot of people with only mechanical pencils, purses, random things they couldn't have. One chick had icy hot. Thought that was weird.

This girl got into a yelling match with a proctor because he wouldn't let her take her phone in. She just kept saying "but I needed to call an uber! Oh my god! Are you serious!?" She eventually stormed off and I'm assuming his her phone.

Saw this trending; despite being a 1L I figure I'd chime in.... I took the LSAT at a much talked about TTT (my family lived near it). The TTT has a big university next to it, and because of this many of the students were from the nearby university. Anyways, I was mingling before the test and the guy I was talking to (from the nearby uni) said "I know one guy who got a 180, he actually ended up going here" (he was dead serious). I tried the best to compose myself and not laugh.

Also the common "we're going to be lawyers and all rich someday" was prevalent, which of course made my head turn.

The number of 100% serious "I'm pre-law because I want to be Harvey Specter"s I've come across is horrifying.

I'm too lazy/drunk to look this up again, but doesn't pre-law have one of the lowest LSAT averages?

Yup only higher than Criminology/Crim Justice.

Ah, the preferred major of D1 athletes.

Also pretty sure I heard at the end "I think my best section was the writing section."

There was someone at my center who was very upset when time ran out. I looked when they collected her paper...she'd written two full pages in very small print. Didn't even have room to write anything else.

Haha wow, that was a good deed on your part!

Some guy at the beginning of the test asked if he could get a pencil.
He then proceeded to say all the pencils he had brought broke in half in his pocket.

Highlight of the test. That is all. :lol:

It's not about the length but how you use it.
