Filling in blanks after time is up?

Postby NewYorkL » Fri Oct 05, 2012 7:15 pm

Possible?

Suppose I finish a question exactly when they say time is up and put your pencils down. Will I have at any part of the test be able to fill in questions I skipped?

No. But you "can" do that while you start the next section of the test...but do it quickly!

Reward: maybe 1 point, but more likely 0 points.
Risk: thrown out of test, disciplinary record on your apps.

Do Not Do This. Not Worth It.

I don't see why you couldn't remember what you were gonna do and then do it while you're writing the next section? Some kind of logistics that limits this possibility?

I do not know if you're aware that it is against the rules. OP presumably wants to become some big shot lawyer, perhaps s/he should start practicing being ethical now.

How do you equate breaking rules with being unethical? I'm not going to risk it personally. But it would be near impossible in a large room to see whether a person fills in a tiny box 1/2 an inch from where they should be filling it in.

By the way, I would love to see you leave 2-3 ACs empty and see your score go out the window than taking the minuscule risk of getting caught (be it filling it in next section or 1 second after the proctor says time up).

Note: I am in no way condoning or declaring that I will partake in this type of behaviour.

Concerning to think that to-be lawyers can't discern ethics from the law or even more, from non-legal 'rules.'

Is your question rhetorical? If so, I really hope you don't become a lawyer since you obviously have no regard for common ethics, or it could be that you have no understanding of it. Either way, don't become a lawyer.

Breaking rules =/= not being ethical


All of these LR questions should have cemented this idea in your heads by now.



That isn't to say breaking rules = ethical


obviously.

Clearly you haven't read the admission ticket. It says nothing about not bubbling after the time is up or about breaking the rules of the LSAT. In a similar vein, you're on your way to becoming a fantastically terrible lawyer.

This argument won't be settled unless we get into the social contract one signs living within a society.


would be fun to participate in if the LSAT wasn't tomorrow.

ITT: poasters display a laughable absence of a moral compass. No, you can't bubble answers after time is called.

IIRC, this happened on someone on TLS, they had an asterisk on their LSAT score, and their admissions cycle was fucked.
