The funniest thing I heard was "excuse me, my test booklet smells, can I get a new one?" every body loled, at her. not with her....

Is that for real? When they came out with that instruction, I was pissed off since I'd been allowing myself erasures during practice, and was used to doing a LOT of them. Pretty bad handwriting plus tendonitis. So my essay is short (2 paragraphs, maybe 20 lines) but not illegible.


You practiced?

I wanted to make sure I had enough time to properly articulate something and not get cut off, especially given I knew my wrist was going to give me problems. In retrospect, I should've asked for a typewriter. Or just bought one of mine and seen what happened.

him: "dude, i had the dumbest bitch next to me"

me: "why?"

him: "he raised his hand in the middle of the of S1, and told the proctor, "I think I have the wrong test, my section is different than his"... I just shook my head

Right before the LSAT I was sitting with a couple of people from my test prep class.

Girl 1: I don't know why I'm taking this, I already signed up for the September/October test.
Me: (trying to be supportive) Oh, I'm sure you'll do great!
Girl 1: Well, I've improved 13 points but I'm not anywhere near where I need to be, I'm so mad.
Me: That's a great improvement! What are you scoring now? You'll be fine
Girl 1: Well my highest was 138.
Me: :shock: ...long pause...I'm sure you'll do great!

I felt so bad for her. Her strategy was to answer 1/2 the questions and guess on the rest, because she couldn't read fast enough to get through all the questions.


During the LSAT:

Douchebaggy guy right behind me kept writing after the sections were over. Every time the proctor told him to stop or they were taking his test, he got all up in arms and HARUMPHED really loud and slammed his papers down. I should have stabbed him with my pencil.

Luckily, I managed to avoid the colorful individuals from my prep class. There was one guy who looked 15, talked a lot of shit, was amazed at someone getting a 163 on a PT (because it was so high), and himself got up and walked out during an in-class practice consisting of the Oct 09 test.

Our start got delayed slightly (~2 min) by one dope who had signed in but gone to the wrong room. One of the proctors had to go fetch him.

It could be the super Kaplan prep where you pay to take the courses at a school and stay in the dormitories (summer only).


Yep, it's like 10 or 11k and you stay at BU or BC.

SchopenhauerFTW wrote:What's kind of screwed up is that they split the class into two groups after the first diagnostic, depending on your score. The people who score higher are instructed to do more work and are taught more methods to keep reaching, while the people who score lower never learn any of these things. 'You scored here and you're going to stay here.' I found this out and angrily stormed to the nearest bookstore to begin my own study routine.


So is it safe to assume that you were in the bottom half?

Some fat dude farted louder than Gabriel's horn, and then exclaimed "Oh yeah!" in celebration.

Proctor should have stopped the test. Un-fucking-bearable. It was an "unfair testing environment," to say the least.

Why "Wong"? I get 王 but Wang is the correct pinyin...

Also, there's stories make me sad because I think I was like the people in them during my first LSAT (before I really knew what was going on/found TLS)...Pretty sure I didn't open my mouth and reveal how dumb I was tho...

Still my favorite story:

Guy 1: I didn't bring a snack.
Guy 2. That sucks. (eating handfuls of planters mixed nuts)
Guy 1: Give me some of your nuts.
Guy 2: You would want that. (turns away from the other guy and does not share his planters mixed nuts)

As we were in line for our room assignments...in view of the ridiculously small chair/desk combos we were about to face...

guy 1: Man, I don't know how I'll fit my ass is those desks.

guy 2: Dude, all the carbo-loading I did last night, I don't know how I'll fit my gut in there

FUCK. I just read through two pages of funny, then fucking 8 pages of bitching. I gave up... why must good threads always be ruined?

Having said THAT, when I got to my testing site they had a huge table of food and drinks for people to snack on before the test and during break. Almost EVERYONE was eating. Is anyone else as shocked by this as I was? I could barely eat two days before the test, let alone 5 fucking minutes before we're about to be seated.
