Test Center Complaint

Postby Quick Silver » Thu Jun 18, 2015 1:11 am

I had some proctor timing problems on the 6/18 exam. The proctor wasn't clear on start times for 2 sections and didn't call 5 minutes on a section.

Is this worth contacting with LSAC about? What's the best they can do to help me after the proctor mistimed?

It sucks, yes (I think everyone who's taken the LSAT had some sort of shitshow thing happen), but from experience, a test center complaint is not going to do much other than delay your score coming out. The only exception would be something like your proctor deciding to throw a rave in the same room as the test, at the same time.

So no, not worth it, imo, especially for something as common as timing mixups.

I wouldn't care as much if he didn't say in advavce that he'd call 5 minutes. Then I expected to hear it and somewhat depended on it.

I'm sorry to say it, but that is your fault. LSAC won't do anything for you. You should have your own method of keeping time, and you should not have to depend on anybody for that function. My proctor was also calling time, but that did not mean I abandoned my pacing system. It happens, and the best way to defend against this is to hold yourself accountable for your timing.

Thanks for your constructive comments.

Let me rephrase my comments. I was very diligent about time and keeping pacing. I had a great watch that I regularly train with.

Although I had my own watch, when he didn't call 5 minutes as usual, it was hard not to second guess my own timing.
