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


Haha! I had this guy behind me who decided it 'fuck it' and went full douche.

Girl in line had asked me if I felt prepared. I said, "Yes, I feel very prepared." She asked how long I'd been studying: "7 months."
"Wow. I just registered for it on the last day of registration, and I put in about two weeks, and I studied a lot, but sometimes I got tired."
"Oh."
"I think it's a good strategy to avoid all the stress, by not taking it so seriously."
Dude right behind us leans in: "What the fuck? Sounds to me like a strategy for avoiding the correct answers."

I want to call him an asshole, but I was thinking the same thing.

Girl: "I heard the writing section is like, weighted the most in admissions. It's the first thing schools see when they look at your application."

Me: (bored, so I went with it...) "Oh... yea? Damn, I'm nervous now.... I hardly even prepared for it!"

Girl: "Really? Wow... how did you study? Did you even know what to study?"

Me: "I dunno, I only really practiced LR, LG, and RC. I really hope I manage to pull out an amazing writing section though."

Girl: "Yea... well good luck with that (condescending)"

The first thing I laughed at was how many people showed up to the test without anything in their hands, thinking to themselves: "yep, I'm good to go".

One guy had like ten pencils in his bag, all brand new never sharpened and had to borrow a pencil because he didn't have a sharpener. Were you planning on stabbing the test with a blunt pencil until caved in and did what you wanted?

Before check in, the supervisor had to call LSAC to ask if it was okay if the people had their "electronic" car keys with them.

While waiting in line I heard this:

Fratdouche1: Bro! You're taking this too?
Fratdouche2: Yeah man!
Fratdouche1: So are you gonna go to law school?
Fratdouche2: I dunno man, I figured I would just take it and see how it goes, what about you?
Fratdouche1: Same here man, I just don't want to get a job.
Fratdouche2: I know right? And how could you turn down the opportunity for 3 more years of partying?
Fratdouche1: I was thinking the same thing!
Fratdouche2: Did you study at all?
Fratdouche1: Nah, I got some notes from (Bro's name) who took it last year, it seems pretty chill.
Fratdouche2: Yeah, (Bro's name) told me the same!

Yup, sometimes this thread makes me feel like I'm reading fmls or damnyouautocorrects. Still makes me laugh though :)

Did you ever notice that? How many really stupid people you run into during the day?
Goddam there's a lot of stupid bastards walking around.
Carry a little pad and pencil with you. You'll wind up with thirty or forty names by the end of the day.
Look at it this way: Think of how stupid the average person is - and then realize that half of them are stupider than that! And it doesn't take you very long to spot one of them does it? Take you about eight seconds. You'll be listening to some guy...you say..."this guy is fucking stupid!"
(George Carlin)

Half of test takers score's will not exceed 151. Nearly all of them have or will complete an undergraduate degree. How is this possible?

When you consider that many schools curve tests to a B+, and that all you need to graduate from college is a 2.0 (and you can drop classes) its no suprise that stupid people can float through and grab a 4 year degree

I wasn't sure if I should be impressed or scared.


I don't know if this is well known around here, but the curve is 99% set prior to the administration, based on the results from when the questions were experimental.

It's well known that the test is 'equated' before test day, I guess.


I'm kind of jealous of some of your test center experiences, mine was completely unremarkable.

This.


I took the test at my school in a building I had classes in. So when we walked into a room where the flip up desks were basically nonexistent (seriously, I would've had my test in my lap) -I asked the proctor if we could move to a different room and this guy goes "what, you need 8ft of desk space?". The rest of the room was relieved when we got the other room where the answer sheet, test booklet, analog watch, pencils, et al fit quite nicely within three feet; but that guy - argh. Wanted to slap him.
