Guy walks into sign in not realizing the line started across the room (I'm assuming), another guy proceeds to point the late sign in guy to the end of the line before pretentiously conversing with another douchebag about how "dumb" some people could be.

Test taker saw me doing warmup questions and then told his friend that if he didn't understand something the day before the test, he wouldn't understand it the morning of (basically talking trash about my WARMUP routine -_-).

A couple of gems to make me feel better about my shit score:

Stetson is my top choice, I might be able to get in if I break 150.


I studied for (insert insufficient time frame here), this should be easy.


As I was doing Game 3 from PT76, same group behind me goes "I heard the third logic game from October was like, insane and no one did well on it"


Where do they take your pictures for the ticket?


Last one, definitely my favorite, didn't see him again..

Proctor: any questions before we start?

Rando: may I grab a sip of water from my bottle really quick?

Proctor: yes.

Rando: [sips water].

Proctor: anyone else?

Rando: can I grab a sip of water during the test?

Proctor: no.

Rando: during the 5 minute breaks, may I grab a sip of water or eat a handful of nuts?

Proctor: yes.

Me: this dude is going to be sorely disappointed when there are no 5 minute breaks.

End result: Every single time that time is called to end a section the dude drinks his water and starts eating, expecting a 5 minute break. Then rushes to put it all away as they tell us to start again. Never gets in trouble for it.

That is some grade-A trolling on proctor's behalf

Saw multiple men in suits. One came in 10 minutes after we started test directions.

Another girl was caught bubbling by one of the proctors and the other proctor--a 50 year old, sweater-wearing, dad-looking guy--came and kneeled next to her and gave her a whisper lecture.

Some girls were talking about schools that you only had to get a 151 to get into.

Like 10 out of the 30 people in our room went to the bathroom during the writing section.

Super serious. It wasn't even an attempt to lead into a "oh where are you thinking of applying," the girl was legitimately curious.


Haha maybe she thought you were a Kaplan or Princeton Review employee? Or just nervous test day banter? People get weird when they're nervous. (Like the guy who had to get a girl's phone number and name "to fill the silence" haha).

1) There was a kid who was being a jerk about the noise of the "fan" (air conditioning) and insisted that the proctors track down a maintenance guy to see if they could turn it off... they couldn't, so he demanded a new seat and the proctors had to re-do their entire seating chart. The proctors were nice but super slow already and I swear this guy lost us almost 30 minutes.

2) Over break I stood next to three guys who were talking about where they wanted to go. One very obnoxious frat dude who was proudly wearing his frat tshirt was very smugly explaining that this was basically a formality, because his dad was a "legacy" at Mercer and could guarantee him admission. He went on to further explain that Mercer was the best law school in Georgia because it was "the most bang for your buck," and that it didn't matter if he didn't get any scholarships because he "wants to be a public defender and they pay off all your debts after ten years anyways, so who cares how much I have to borrow." I choked on my water a little bit at the last part, but the other two guys looked to be totally in awe of his knowledge, network, and plans. One of them also explained that he left 4 or 5 blank on the last section because he didn't want to get any points taken off for being wrong...

1)

Girl comes in the front door wearing fashionable sunglasses and Louis Vuitton clutch INSIDE her zip loc bag.

Administrator: "you can't bring a clutch"

Fashion Girl: "no, you can. I did this before at this exact center"

She was somehow allowed inside and was able to take a test.


2)

This girl was lined up and her SO was next to her, hugging her, telling her sweet things, giving her moral support, warming her up, etc. Cried a little inside bc my SO was sleeping at that hour

3)

3 ppl were sent back from bringing cell phones

Not much our center...about 300 people.

This one annoying girl in front of my received a violation notice and one dude was laughing about how this was his third time around. I felt bad for the guy when I got hit with game three which was in my final section thinking he must be completely devastated.

Keep your friends close, and give your enemies a ticket to take the LSAT.

Nothing crazy at my location. One girl had her mother with her the entire time. Walked all the way to the classroom with us. She was there when we came out for the break and later at the end. Afterwards one guy was talking about trying to break a 150. He actually took a class which surprised me. He said he could probably still get into St Thomas (FL) his alma mater if he gets near a 150. Two other girls that I spoke with afterwards said, they didn't even attempt two of the games.

Stories like this make me question my ability to love my hypothetical unborn child.

When the proctor said there were five timed sections the girl behind me asked me when they added another section because the test she bought only had four. To make her not feel nervous I just said it must've been new because mine had four too...

Nothing major on mine.... Just the standard "im just giving the test a shot to see how I do" and "Cooley is down the road from us so I am looking there"

I do remember "I really like Cooley, the campus feels so new and it is right here next to home". I mean its great for people who wants to stay home to go to school but that is a ton of debt and very very poor job prospects.
