ok this isn't that funny but that's a pretty trash breakfast to have the morning of the LSAT.


lol, it doesnt matter as long as that's what you're used to having. my breakfast was a five hour energy and half a nature valley.

yeah I know but it was still kinda funny to me, probably cause I'm the complete opposite.

Lol i remember my proctor telling us to not bs this statement and how it is important. I also remember reading the instructions and it said Do Not write about anything else except what is on the prompt and basically what the proctors told us.

Is this a big gamble for the exam? I mean LS see this. Watch this girl get into YHS regardless of her score based on her being a rebel lmao!

I think "She was instructed to choose between two road projects, and could not choose a topic of her own. She wrote BLM" is a sufficiently strong comeback.

Otherwise, literally any essay title exam would be subject to students trying to blackmail their universities. "Yes, I had a course on fine art in the fourteenth century, but I think BLM so gimme a 4.0!" doesn't wash.

I was told a story from someone who may be a bit in the know, about an application to one of the heavy-weight law schools in NYC. The adcomm was finishing up the app and getting ready to accept the student, when he noticed the writing sample. On the writing sample, the student wrote something along the lines of "I know you are not going to read this, so I will list what I want for Christmas" (or some bizarre list like that, it came across as too cocky or arrogant).

The committee then not only rejected the applicant, but that adcomm wrote the student a personal letter, letting him know what happened and hy he was rejected.

Don't stress over it, but take the writing sample seriously.

Here's an amazing story from the LSAT subreddit:

Around the 23 minute mark of section 1, some guy started screaming outside the doors to the test room (only 15-25 people wrote at my centre). He barged in yelling about being unable to write the test because he arrived at 9:05. His argument was "the ticket says check in by 8:30 and I got here at 9 so why can't I write??" The 3 proctors could do nothing to stop him from disturbing everyone, he targeted the supervisor yelling "I bet you like dck in your a, huh is there sht or blood in your a**hole" and he yelled this over and over while using his phone to film the entire thing and shoving it near the proctors rear end. The poor proctor was noticeably distraught. It was a disgustingly disturbing thing to witness. The guy spent roughly the next 10 minutes roaming around the room filming and yelling at anyone he came near, again there were not that many people in the room so people began yelling back, some others continued to write but the scene was utter chaos. The timer was still going during all this until someone yelled "can we stop the timer please?" at which time the proctors did. After campus police chased him around the room for another 5 minutes, he left and the proctors called LSAC who said no new time would be added to the section...we had wasted at least 7-10 minutes. It was now they said we could cancel if we wanted to. I decided to continue but the lack of time on section 1 and the mental trauma/loss of focus ultimately made me decide to cancel my score, it wasn't worth the gamble. While waiting outside for my ride to come pick me up, a full hour and a half after the initial incident, I saw the yelling guy come sprinting through the woods...the cops were still chasing him! I had never seen any horror story like this before I wrote, has anyone else??

Wow, if that's true... He may have literally just wasted a whole year of these people's professional lives.

I don't have anything that was overheard this time, but I will say that there was a surprising number of attractive girls in my sitting. Not at all like last year, and there were even fewer people sitting this time.

Usual unprepared comments on the test takers' part, but the proctors really brought a strong game today.

1. Didn't even start check-in until 8:30. Kind of a nuissance.
2. When filling out the test booklet information, the proctor said, "Make sure you get it right, so you can get your A's as quickly as possible." Yes, our A's.
3. One proctor collected a student's answer sheet when collecting admissions tickets, and no one caught it until time started for Section 1. They got it to the student within 30 seconds, but I was getting anxiety just thinking about that.
4. Proctor, an older white woman, had a clearly visible tattoo on her collar bone in some sort of Chicano script font. I WANT TO KNOW THAT STORY.

A kid in my room brought a bunch of mechanical pencils and didn't know he couldn't use them.

Oh wait that was me *facepalm*

In my defense they were #2 and non-refillable, so I couldn't have put non #2 lead in but got dayum that was embarrassing.

Edit- I just reread the admission ticket, it doesn't say no mechanical pencils. Am I going crazy?

Read the section on prohibited non electronic devices on page 2. It's towards the bottom.

Someone asked, when instructed to transcribe the text on side 2 of the answer sheet, if the directions were correct because in the first line it says, "I certify that it is my name that appears on this answer sheet" and she hadn't written her name yet. Check in was at 8:30. By the time we reached this point, it was past 9:30.

During the beginning instructions period, the proctor said no cell phones were allowed. So this one kid, who also checked in late, got up and tried to hand his cell phone to the proctor. The proctor told them that he couldn't even have the cell phone on the premises, and told the kid he had to be dismissed right there and then. Bummer!

IMO, TLS is at times a little savage. I think each person can have a desired personal score, but everyone gets his/her own. If someone is shooting for X score, good for 'em. We're all just doing our own thing. But just my two cents. Don't destroy me, yo.

When writing the "I solemnly swear I'm up to good and only good" statement for LSAC, I accidentally re-wrote the second sentence and beyond, after I had written half of the third sentence, and didn't realize until it was too late. So I erased the repeated part but there's just a random line and a half gap between the first part and the second part of sentence 3 and beyond. My statement is completed in full though... :oops:

Sorry about the nerves, LSAC. Please don't delay my score lol

My proctor needed a break so she was replaced for a section, and the new proctor's phone went off twice. That wasn't a big deal, but she then replies to both text messages with the tapping noise on so we heard her type every single letter and it took her a good two minutes to reply and it was at the beginning of the section so it threw some people off. Certainly not as bad as some of these other stories, but it was ridiculous how oblivious she was.

Some kid kept bubbling answers after pencils down was called. Kept bubbling after the proctor repeated it, and still keep bubbling after the proctor repeated it a 2nd time, almost yelling. Eventually he looked up to see everyone staring at him at the moment that the proctor ripped away his test.

Did not realize that mechanical pencils are not allowed. Apparently my proctors did not either, as I took my entire exam with one and was not dismissed. Unless they just threw my exam in the garbage after we were done.
