Guy #2: Am I allowed to randomly guess on questions?
Proctor: confirms no penalty for incorrect answers
Guy #2: Even the questions I don't have time to read? I can randomly guess on those too?

Guy #3: I forgot to bring my highlighter. Can I use a pen to underline?
Girl #1 (from previous post, interjecting before proctor can respond): No, because there's no way to erase the ink.
Proctor: motions to the assistant to return to girl #1 and then explains pens are not permitted on desk
Guy #3: Oh okay, but since I don't have a highlighter, I can use my pencil to underline, right?

I took the test at Suffolk in Boston.

*musket shots, a parade of men in revolutionary regalia, sirens, and drums are heard*
Proctor: If the war continues, I will stop the clock and we will wait for the redcoats to pass.

[Also, later that day]

Proctor: .. and you may begin.
*Kid next to me fills in 25 or so dots, looks up, then puts his head down.*
*different proctor gestures to a third proctor*
Proctor 2: You can really tell who studied and who didn't. That particular gentleman is always finished with the section before everyone else
*I facepalm mid-test*

Third Time Test Taker. I'm a TTTT
First time (Dec 2010) One individual strolled in while instructions were being read. The proctors were nice enough to let him take the test. His cell also went off during the test, which proctors confiscated, but allowed him to continue testing.
A couple people had trouble filling out their names.
Right before the proctor was going to tell us to start the first section another guy interrupts the proctor to say he has been having dehydration issues lately and may occasionally need to take drinks of water during the test. I really have no problem with someone occasionally getting a drink during the test, but I have to believe 1) that excuse was BS 2) he should have told the proctor when he checked in.
Also, due to my own poor planning I had to take a pee break during section 2.

Both Feb and June went smoothley except for dealing with the A0/AO issues this time around.

New to this forum, and this thread really helped me lighten up about the waiting game!

My fellow test-takers were pretty un-funny, but I enjoyed the proctor.

After reading the instructions for the writing sample:
Student: Sorry, did you say we can't erase?
Proctor: It says to cross out errors and not to erase... but, I mean, do whatcha do.

Hahha unfortunately no, that did not happen. We switched proctors somewhere during the test and it was an asian lady instead of the original old fat dude who gave us trouble with the A0 stuff. I wish my room had been more amusing, the only other funny thing was some aspie kid sitting next to me who asked 29348234832 questions x_X He's the one who started the whole A0/AO debate, and he kept chuckling under his breath really loudly and making super loud and awkward comments to himself about it.

Oh, and he also only brought 1 pencil. e_e When he saw I brought like 7, he was like "Oh wow you are so much more prepared than me..." It was awkward.

Haha as awkward as me standing in line with three Cooley hopefuls and a Cooley 1L? He was talking about how rough law school is (sometimes you have to read 80 pages for the next class!!! haha) and without thinking I said "Yea I just read somewhere that the average student at T10 studies 7 hours a day outside of class but I'm just gonna try not to think about that when I send out my apps." My internal dialogue was like Shit! You are not talking to TLSers here. Way to sound like "that girl". Excuuuuse me everybody, MAKE WAY FOR QUEEN DOUCHE

Guy: (clearly flirting) "So, ready for the test?"
Girl: "Yeah, I studied for like a whole week. But it's all basically common sense."
Guy: "Oh, hell yeah. You'll do fine."
Girl: "Hope so."
Guy: "So...did you graduate this year?"
Girl: "Yeah, I'm done!"
Guy: "Awesome. So what do you want to do, career-wise?"
Girl: "I don't know."

Proctor is announcing rules. Guy in the front row's hand goes up.

Proctor: "It's emailed to you."

Proctor goes back to announcing. Guy doesn't even bother to raise hand.

Guy: "Wait! Can't I figure it out with the raw score?"
Proctor: "...what?"
Guy: (dismissively sucks teeth) "Ah, man..."

I had a TLSer vs. civilian moment myself. I was chatting with this guy in the check-in line and he goes:

"So which schools are you going to apply to, like... [names worst school in our region]"

I reply: "I'm thinking about... [rattle off a few T1s]"

The guy looks at the ground, I felt like a huge jerk. Then after a few more minutes he goes:

"How much did you study? I went down to the bookstore and bought a review book and leafed through the first two chapters. I figure I know what I need to know."

I reply: "Well I took the test once before so I guess you could say I've been studying for a year."

He goes: "I took a practice test the other day, I couldn't imagine doing any more, they suck. How many have you taken?"

"Um (blushing like crazy) I've taken 40 or so."

Guy just looks at the floor.

Dude, you got trolled, it's obvious the proctor and the girl were practicing their Vaudeville routine before they take it out on the road. Pretty good, maybe tighten it up in the middle, but the last bit is killer.

It was a riot. During the instructions, I kept glancing around; fortunately, I didn't make eye contact with anyone near me who found these exchanges as humorous as I did. If I had, knowing myself, I'd have begun laughing uncontrollably and surely would have been ejected from the testing center.

I last took the exam in February 2006 and retook it yesterday just for fun, to see if I could get a perfect score. I almost certainly did not (due to AR game #3), so I will cancel. Nevertheless, the past two weeks I spent preparing were not a total waste, if only due to the dialogue during the instructions.

I actually made it a point not to talk to people, I wanted to stay focused. Some dude did show up with 2 unsharpened pencils and asked like 20 people if they had a pencil sharpener, he was lucky someone actually did.

A girl seated to my left (not girl #1) was a train wreck. She required personal attention no less than three times. Each episode prompted an administrative delay of several minutes while one of the proctors provided assistance or further explanation of the instructions. The first instance occurred while signing the certification statement; the second instance occurred during instructions preceding the writing sample; and the third instance occurred following the announcement regarding score cancellation (when she presumably decided to cancel).

Despite her proximity, I did not overhear what was said. I would pay cash money for a transcript.

LOLOL <3 <3 <3 More like Queen Prepared for LS... :mrgreen: I sooo wish something more amusing had happened at my center!! But the only person I really interacted with was this super nice girl who had graduated in 09 and gotten her masters in Europe and was working and taking the LSAT for the first time. She seemed chill.

Though I was REALLY surprised by how many girls were completely dolled up for the test. Like, full on fake eyelashes, eye shadow, trendy hipster cutoff belly shirt with skinny jeans. Tons of girls were wearing heels/wedges, and a couple were in cute little sundresses. Guess that's what I get for taking it at USC. :lol: There were a couple girls in sweats (one in a hot pink velour tracksuit that was way too small and a terrible fake tan LOL). I just dressed normally, jeans, shirt, jacket.

Woah that's way more than I do for going out. Well, I never really do go out anymore so I guess that's a moot point. I rocked converse and ripped jeans with a ponytail and chapstick. Hot. I went in not minding chatting cause I knew I was going to cancel, but in Oct I will most likely be wishing to talk to nobody and have absolutely nothing interesting to add to this thread!

I took my test in Ann Arbor. I had heard that sometimes Princeton and Kaplan will send their employees in to take the test...with that in mind

a guy asked me (while in line).."so what strategy do you use for those..what are they called?"

ME "Test questions?"

GUY "no, the ones with like sally, jessica, and becky" (all white girl names and he was black..not that it matters, just sounded funny)

ME "Analytical Reasoning...it depends on the type of game"

GUY "No, definitely not analytical, the games one! Logic Games" :shock:

Conversation ended as I walked into the "auditorium". I really doubt he was serious. He had to be one of their employees who was trying to gather information from other test takers. But who knows, after reading this, it is very obvious that people take this test with no preparation.

Not joking this shocking exchange actually happened yesterday:

random girl: "So they do the same test every time right?"

me: "huh?"

random girl: "Like they don't change any of the questions for each test, so its the same one as last year?"

me: Blank stare
