I went to a pretty top notch UG and I certainly have my own elitist tendencies, but even I thought this was a bit pretentious.
Also, we were taking the test on these big lab tables, and at the break the girl sitting next to me at my table moved to a different table. Very confused as I wasn’t sweating profusely, tapping my pencil, making noises to myself, or anything really. It was a little strange, and just the tiniest bit hurtful.
I've told this story before, but the kid next to me was decked out in his Princeton gear. Was talking to him beforehand, and he said he didn't study for it because he heard that its all logic and that you don't need any actual knowledge of anything beforehand. I rolled my eyes and lol'ed on the inside at hearing this. In the middle of the test, he got up and walked out after he realized that it just wasn't happening. He was still outside when the test let out and he went on to become my first tutoring client.
