Proctor: The lights in here are on a motion sensor. If there's no movement for two minutes, they switch off. It shouldn't be a problem though, just remember to move around every now and then.

Halfway through section 1: The room is suddenly plunged into total darkness (there are no windows). Cue panicked cries and frantic arm-waving. The lights come back on. Everyone breaths a sigh of relief.

Section 3: Same thing.

We had two proctors: one appeared to be about 21 and the other about 81, About 20 minutes into the 3rd section (LR) the oldtimer's cell phone went off and played some really snappy jazz quite loudly. The girl next to me was PISSED and started bitching when the oldster took about 20 seconds to silence it.

She was bitching HARD on the break, too.

took it in St Johns University, the proctors were really laid back cracking jokes and what not. However, a lady in front of me was asking people what the format of the test is, which type of questions there are, and how much time we are given for each section...

During the break:

Proctor: "Sir you can't have your cellphone on you."
Testee: "What?"
Proctor: "Give me your ID, and your test."
Testee: "Wait, what are you saying?"
Proctor: "You are dismissed from this test. You will not be allowed to finish it."
Testee: "Why? It wasn't on! I wasn't using it to cheat! You got to let me finish man."
Proctor: "I'm sorry, I can't do that."

Also, while waiting in line, heard a guy and a girl talking:

Guy: So did you take any practice tests?
Girl: No, there were some in the book I got but I never took them.
Guy: Don't worry, you'll be fine. Just don't zone out.
Girl: You think?
Guy: You just have to pay attention to every word. It's not about how well you read. You have to read strategically.

I'm thinking...this is good advice, but definitely too little, too late.

This isn't exactly entertaining, but a kid by me tried starting some conversation with me. He seemed nice enough, so I wish I had met him in another context so I could tell him to get his butt to TLS. Basically he's a URM (black male) and was talking about how worried he was because his LSAT number is so important. He said he needed a 168 to get into a particular T1. In reality 168 is really above their 75th. I wanted to tell him that with his URM-ness if he gets a 168 to blanket the T14 and never look back and forget about that school.

Poor guy also forgot his pencils.

Jock Guy: "So what kind of law do you want to go into?"
Guy 2: "Corporate."
Jock Guy: "Cool. I'm going into divorce and bankruptcy. I figure with the government getting rid of the middle class, law in those will be pretty safe."

Each time the proctor announced that we had five minutes left, the girl sitting behind me would LOUDLY say to herself, "oh no really? oh no no no, shoot oh no oh no!" etc etc. I was a little rushed on the last section and was so ready to turn around and tell her to shut it because she was starting to get me flustered and I couldn't tune out her annoying voice. Chill out girl.

But then who will provide us with teh lulz?


And who will pad out the bottom for us so that even if we get a 166 in October ( :roll: ) we can still save face by telling law-schoop applicants that we scored above the 90% percentile...

I recall when I took the test a while back, the proctor started complaining about how the price of bananas had gone up, and, after she told me that I looked like Harry Potter, she implored me to do something about skyrocketing banana prices after I became a lawyer.

In the middle of section three, I hear her "whisper" incredibly loudly to the other proctor "Damn, these kids are serious about this test."

I have no idea what you tried to say or why it was funny.

90% of the things ITT aren't remotely funny. Step it up.

the best is during admittance

proctor: "i can not admit you. you lack too many things. you lack an answer sheet. and you lack a passport photo."
student: "but i have everything else"
[student walks out]
proctor: "some people cant handle the simplest instructions yet expect to do a complicated test"

and then during the test

a HUGE commotion was made during the writing of that stupid paragraph before the test begins

student: "do we have to write in cursive"
proctor: "yes is says write. write means cursive. if it wasnt cursive, it would have said print. printing and writing are different things"
and this was 2 minutes after everyone began writing
erasers went crazyyyyyy, debate on print vs write went on and on and on.

also someones times went off during the middle of the 2nd section and i loudly whispered "motherfucker"

During break:
School acquaintance: "Those things...those things...! What are they...they give you like a little scenario...like 'If K sits by F then...' what is that section called?"
Me: "The games?"
School acquaintance: "Oh those are called games?! Then yeah! I like those!"

Proctor after break:
Proctor 1: "Who are we missing?"
Proctor 2: "That dude with all the pencils"
(He had two full packs of #2s)
