WTF?

And one guy had his phone but he was being all chatty with one proctor so she took it and love tapped him on the shoulder and walked away giggling.


Did you take your exam in Houston? This happened in my room, exactly!

Well I didn't overhear anything truly funny but this guy next to me was very irritating during the last section of the test.

1) He has to use the bathroom (when he could have done so during the break so he ran in and out of the room making a ton of noise) and

2) when he sat down, I guess he was nervous, so he started stomping his feet for about 3-4 minutes. Either way it was very irritating and worst of all he apparently finished the test early! I have never been so annoyed before! What an ass!

Gahhh.....hope he didn't mess up my last section. Sigh. Blerg.

Girl: So, how many questions can I get wrong for a 160?
Guy #1: I don't know, I think its curved.
Guy #2: About thirty. So you could skip the reasoning section.
Girl: *blankstare*
Guy #2: You know, the short ones.
Girl & Guy #1: Oh

I wonder how many exchanges like these involve somebody deliberately spreading misinformation during the test because they think screwing people gives them a competitive advantage. We all know it doesn't (since curve is based on performance when sections were exp), but I wonder just how many dicks on the street think it's totally a good idea.

Or maybe I'm giving people too much credit, and everyone's actually that stupid.

I'm going to go they were just that stupid, at least in this case. Guy #1 actually stood up and started getting ready to leave before the writing samples were collected. When the proctor told us to sign the test booklet at the end of section five, he waived around his answer sheet and said he couldn't find where to sign it.

We were delayed over two hours because the testing center had only 7 proctors to process 479 people. By the time I got in there, the first people who entered the room had been sitting for 90+ minutes. The head proctor was adamant that we could not leave the room to use the washroom until the test has started. However, she eventually folded....

Proctor: "Ok if you absolutely have to go to the washroom, we'll delay some more and escort you. Does anyone need to go?"
Every single hand in the room shoots up like a firecracker
Proctor: "Oh my god! No, I'm sorry, but you'll have to wait. I emphasize...empathize...er...yeah, empathize with your situation."
Entire room laughs at the proctor.

At that point, the majority of the room bumrushed the exits and ran to the washrooms. It was a gongshow.

The proctor at my administration couldn't pronounce "irregularities". It's not like she stumbled and eventually got it, show didn't know what the word meant nor how it was pronounced, we all had a good laugh.

I think what's insane is that this guy took the time to actually find a visual aid to accompany this bizarre point he's trying to make. That was actually kind of creepy, lol.

Yes! I could not believe she let him have the ear plugs! I kept thinking, what if he does not hear time called?

I can't believe I read all 21 pages of this thread. Funniest thing that happened at my LSAT administration was that half of the proctors didn't show up. And someone puked in the testing room. Oh wait, that's not funny...

Please tell me you mean 1K and not 10.


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.

I really thought this was a joke honestly before I read more and realized it was true lol. Thats extreme!!! Who has that kind of money!? Thats like an LSAT boot-camp!!

The guy sitting next to me in the hall while we were waiting had never studied, never looked at PT, just decided to show up because he worked in a law office and thought he might go to law school. He had no idea what the test was about. I told him, you don't loose points for guessing, good luck.

There was a couple in the hall way too, acting like they were in high school. Over the top PDA. You would think that by the time you get to the point in your life where you are trying to go to law school you would have developed a sense of when such things are appropriate and when they are not.

This happened at 2 of the 3 LSAT's I took, it was annoying. Watching these 2 make out and laughing about how they are going to "merk" the test definately threw me off. It was more awkward than anything. The most interesting part was their reaction leaving the test, they didn't want to have anything to do with each other and looked like they wanted to /selves Romeo & Juliet style.

Must be something mystical about that word - my proctor thought it was the funniest thing every time she had to say it - ah, memories.....

Something I saw before the test freaked me out. I pulled up next to some guy waiting in his car (jaguar or something). He got out, started walking towards the test center. I think he went inside for a hot minute , came back to his car and drove off.

What was he doing? Was he dropping someone off? Did he forget his wallet? Did he decide not to take the test? Was he at the wrong center? Did his gf forget her 5hour energy? Was he practicing a dry run for the Feb11 test?
