And you thought the LSAT was bad for you . . .

Our friend Koolaid (for some CRAZY reason) decided to re-take the LSAT which you can do in Afghanistan. Here is his description of the test conditions:

I took the LSAT again today. Strange setting for such a test. The proctor was going over the rules with me and we had to ignore the one that forbade me from having firearms in the testing center. Then I needed to where ear plugs for most of the five hours to quash the sounds of jets overhead and small arms fire in the background.

He’s organizing donations to a hospital/orphanage in Afghanistan. If you would like to send him a box of toys, blankets, or warm clothes for kids, I will give you his address. Just post a comment and I will email you.

    Yes, send, me the address and post office instructions. Got a big bag of warm hand-me-downs that don’t fit Eli.

    I think this is an opportunity for LSAT test stories.

    Come on guys. Let them rip.

    Koolaid may have the best one. But, come on. Let’s tee them up.

    P.S. Koolaid, I hope you totally kicked its ass.

    Is Koolaid able to read this blog? If so, here’s a message for him: Koolaid—We mailed you a box of assorted stuff yesterday & hope some things will be just the thing for at least one person. Keep LB updated on the needs there.

    You’re in my prayers. Thanks for serving.

    Should always reread before submitting. I was trying to say I hope at least one item will please someone, & that includes you, Koolaid!

    yo krispy:

    I had a little fender bender on the way to the LSAT the second time I took it, but that’s really the best i can do for a story and taking it in a (literal) combat zone is going to beat all our stories.

    PS — Koolaid cannot read the blog. ):

  7. I took the LSAT last week also and a couple of stories are worth telling:

    -a poor girl who was wearing a hooded sweatshirt was told that it wouldn’t be allowed in the testing room. So she proceeded to remove it, but when the proctor realized she was only wearing her bra underneath, she allowed her to test in her hoodie. You’ve got to be really committed to law school to sit through a 5 hour test in a room of 300 in just your bra, no?

    -the proctor forgot to call “five minutes left” for one section. instead, she called “ONE minute left” and everyone freaked out. Yikes.

    -the LSAT now allows you only to carry a gallon-sized bag with all of your items inside. One girl had a three-gallon sized ziplock bag (where do you even get those?) filled to the brim with mints, cigarettes, etc. They told her that her bag was too big and she had a mini-breakdown deciding what to throw away in order to fit her items into a gallon-sized bag.

    -one test-taker was caught using mechanical pencils and was verbally reprimanded during one section. it’s unclear whether the student was reported to LSAC.

    What a test!
