TCR. A normal person in this situation might roll his eyes and go on about his business.

How, exactly, did his cell phone use or the proctor's response affect you or anyone else in that room?

I must say I'm really shocked at all of you defending this guy. Maybe it's my military background that requires discipline and adherence to rules but if all of you were able to read and follow the regulations knowing this exam can make or break your future plans, why in the world would you tolerate someone in your midst who did not? Is this really the guy you want in the seat next to you for the next few years? Is this the guy you want to work with in a firm? Would you want him to represent your mother in a legal proceeding knowing he CHOOSES not to follow the rules? These were not difficult or arbitrary regulations. They have a purpose and that is to ensure test security. Call me anything you wish for turning him in but the proctor did not do her job and whether or not it affected me is irrelevant. I see him as another potential drag on the legal profession. I caused him no harm-he caused it to himself.

Thank you Eberry.

We're not defending him. You just made a really, really shitty utilitarian calculation. That's all.
Edit: It doesn't actually look like you made a utilitarian calculation at all. Which is the problem.

I think it is brave that you stood up for what is right, but what if the guy had some kind of medical condition or personal problem that he needed the phone for?

We're not defending him. You just made a really, really shitty utilitarian calculation. That's all.
Edit: It doesn't actually look like you made a utilitarian calculation at all. Which is the problem.


Personally I believe that if an action is wrong (violation of rules) I should report the same regardless of the harm to myself. The utilitarian judgement I made here is that adherence to the rules ultimately provides the best outcome to everyone as a group even if it causes an undesirable outcome to one individual (whose outcome I am, again, not responsible for-he is).

I'm still a little hazy on how you managed to report this guy.

Did you give a description?

A position in the room relative to your own?

Did you ask for him for his name? If so, did you do so blatantly or did you casually strike up conversation after the test?

May i recommend a surgical procedure to remove that stick from up your ass? You sound like the kind of person that would report me when i used to wear white socks instead of black socks in high school (a school uniform 'rule'). I doubt it was necessary to report dude for what i presume as him being a careless, irresponsible dimwit. Your actions will likely result in much more harm than there would have been if you either ignored dude or tell him he was violating the rule. But whatever makes you sleep at night. Rock on.

The admission tickets had photos attached. The proctors wrote our testing room info on each admission ticket. He was easily identifiable by photo (only one in room with 3 distinctive characteristics) when the room was known. I never spoke to him.

I am not sure about reporting somebody for something that was highly unlikely to help him. I believe in following the rules, and I dislike cheaters. But this guy didn't even benefit from breaking the rule.

Dear Gentle OP,

You, sir, are a scholar and gentleman. Pay no mind to these charlatans and ne'er-do-wells who would let such insidious cheating go unabated. Our most sacred practice -- the law, in all of her splendor -- needs more devotees of such character and fortitude. I suggest that you wear a "safety patrol" sash during your first week of 1L to let the other students know that you will keep the class safe from the blasphemy of forbidden commercial outlines and will promptly report any discussion of the exams during winter break to the proper authorities.

Yours, etc.

No he was the only one in the room with certain identifying characteristics which I am sure were evident on the required photo.
