What should I do after getting dismissed from the test center?

Postby hmmmmmm » Sat Dec 03, 2016 2:28 pm

I did a really stupid thing while taking the lsat this morning: I tried to erase an answer in section 1 after the proctor asked to put pencils down. While I was doing section 2 she came over and told me that she'll report it. During the break she dismissed me.

Now things have happened, and LSAC doesn't open on Saturday. I'm really upset about what would happen next and what I should do now?

Thanks in advance for the help!

grades??

Well you are in a tough spot. You were on notice to not cheat, and you cheated anyway. I assume the LSAC will investigate. Maybe it is time to start thinking about something other than law school.

Just chalk it up to a learned lesson. Keep studying and take the test again. If you end up getting an official reprimand from LSAC then write an explanation in your law school apps and acknowledge your mistake.

I am very sorry to hear that you were dismissed yesterday.

Were you wearing a Harvard hoddie by any chacne?

I hope things will get resolved... I was in the same room with you...

I am sorry about that. I think you better send a letter explaining things.

How would you explain this? OP, good a time as any to let the dream die.

This happens to people frequently enough that I can't imagine it can't be overcome (3 people got dismissed from my fairly small TC the time before I took.) Take it again and maybe write an addendum or a CF note about it when you apply (not sure if that's appropriate or not - you'd want to look that up more.)

Appreciate the Korean but asking him/her to identify himself/herself is a bit ridiculous lol
