Certifying Statement.... Not in Cursive

Postby Kess » Mon Oct 03, 2011 10:36 pm

I keep seeing stuff in various threads that this was supposed to have been done in cursive. I never knew this. I am starting to seriously panic.... I did it in print. Should I panic?

At the end of my test the proctors read the directions after the test were done (a warning to not talk about the test), then looked at booklet and said something along the lines of "Ok, now it says to call up everyone's name who didn't write in cursive but we checked and everyone did so I can skip that." So I'm guessing your proctor is semi-responsible

edit: O and they also read directions that clearly stated it must be cursive (Idk if they didn't say it or if you missed it)

Nah I wouldn't worry. A lot of people I know don't even know how to write cursive anymore. Its a dying and largely useless skill.

I remembered having to do it in cursive on the SAT, so I was listening closely, and they never said to. And I finished in exactly the time they allotted before moving on, and I'm a fast writer. I'm assuming nearly everyone in my room (about 30-40) did it in print.

I wouldn't worry!

I think I read somewhere on TLS that they no longer require cursive. Either way, I didn't write it in cursive in June and nothing happened.

I remember doing it in cursive on the SAT too because my teachers and proctor at the time too made a big stink of it.

I had a pretty thorough Testmasters instructors that gave us plenty of tips for the LSAT and she never mentioned this. I am pretty sure the proctor didn't say anything about this, but I am not excluding the possibility that I missed it.

At the end of the exam, the proctor read names of people who missed something like they didn't bubble in some of their info or didn't sign something. My name wasn't called. Hope that means I am safe... on these grounds!

I printed in June and got my score back just fine. Printed this time too. I think I probably dropped a word somewhere too.

lol I'm actually being 100% serious, but my proctors also bragged about how long / how many times they've been doing this. So I'm guessing they probably just did some things based on previous years

I've taken the LSAT twice and have never written the certifying statement in cursive; never had an issue whatsoever

I looked this time, because people tripped me out about this in June, it doesn't even say cursive. And I got my score back in June in regular writing.

Someone asked about this in my classroom. The proctor specifically said that you should write it however you normally write and that they no longer require cursive. This is not something to worry about at all.

I feel like the LSAT takers get aspier every year.
