The first one is laugh out loud funny


Did...did no one sense the sass here? This is TLS, you all are super sassy. She was clearly one of us.

"So, are you planning on going to law school?"


Why else would you be taking the LSAT?! She was just being sassy with her response lol

A guy tried to come into the test room with his cell phone. One of the proctors made him go hide it some where in the test center building. When he came back the proctor realized he was in the wrong testing room and sent him away.

she had a plastic bag as well instead of the one we're supposed to bring

A girl(not bad looking either) just kept looking at me for five minutes with a smile on her face in the lobby before the test. I wasn't sure if she was flirting or trying to get my seat(I was one of like five people who had chairs in a room with hundreds of people, If only I could have that percentile on the LSAT sighhh). Loser me just buried my head in my LSAT notes. After a few seconds she walked past me and I never saw her again.

people kept using the bathroom during the section and I know not that many people can finish a section in 25 minutes.

Someone during break said, "This is not really a test you can study for" and "I'm going to apply in the spring"

Proctor let me in even though my girlfriend was in the picture. He said "Next time, bring your date."

My test center had no more than 100 students. Each classroom probably had no more than 14 students.

While waiting for our room assignments, I had a conversation with two people. Normal LSAT gargin and making fun of people who we witnessed not following LSAC rules: bringing their whole life to the test site, blatant use of cell phones, only brought mechanical pencils for test..etc... It was small stuff, but it helped keep our minds at ease and lifted our spirits.

I happened to look over at one of their gallon bags and saw their LSAT admission ticket. Their photo clearly violated LSAC rules! It was literally a regular photo with a busy background looked like they were in a forest and the person was sitting down in the pic with their legs crossed. I literally turn red, bc we just spent 20 mins talking shit about people who don't follow basic instructions, yet want to become lawyers.

I look around and see a good 30% have pictures that violate LSAC rules. One person took an obvious selfie walking across an interstate. At this point I'm like ok, bc while the curve is predetermined, this was an easy way to eliminate competition.

One thought that crossed my mind is that maybe they got away with not following the ticket photo rule. I mean all the emails I recieved from LSAC about following picture protocal and at least 30 people came in with incorrect pictures, this can't be life.


Did anyone see test takers being turned away for admission ticket photos violating the rules?

This wasn't something I overheard but someone got up and left after section 1; proctors said it was an LG section during our break :? Hopefully it was the actual LG and not an experimental section because if it was experimental, my guy cancelled a score without even actually delving into the test.

But to answer your question: yes, at least one of them had 26. I had three LR and can't remember what was where so I can't figure out which was my experimental lol.

During break, I was basically walking in a circle because I felt like I needed to stretch/wake up. Hopefully I didn't look crazy lol.

Right when we were being let go for the break, I put my answer sheet, away and unintentionally look over to the person sitting next to me. I noticed she hadn't shaded in ANY answers in her scantron sheet.

I talked to her outside and said, "hey I wasn't copying off of you but I noticed you didn't fill in the scantron sheet which is the only thing that's graded".
She looked at me amazed, and told me she didn't know, everything was going by so fast and she was so nervous. She told me she would finish the next two sections in her scantron and see what grade she got. :shock: I told her she should talk to LSAC and see if they can grade her booklet, or think about maybe cancelling, though I didn't want her to feel bad, lol. I asked her if she had studied and she said she used "the prepbook" (I don't know which one) and also some flash cards.

Finally, in our fourth section A DOVE FLEW IN THROUGH A WINDOW and planted itself on one of the desks, then flew to another desk, all the while half the people in the room were screaming and a few got up from their desk, lmao.

Today was too damn funny even though I probably fucking bombed the test. :P

One of the (TTT) TC proctors used the opportunity while collecting writing samples to invite us to a nearby establishment for free apps and booze after the test with faculty and current students. Classy stuff.

Also, one dude had a full-on electric pencil sharpener on his desk.
