I think this thread should be locked. It is ridiculous how many replies this ridiculous post is getting, and ironically I'm adding to that number.
Based on your hostile and ridiculous posts filled with anger and unreasonableness that borders on sounding like the rantings of a mental patient in a manic phase, perhaps you are the thing that deserves to be locked up and then properly medicated.
Asking and talking about earplugs is a legitimate topic. Some people, like ones with ADD/ADHD get easily distracted and thrown off their train of thought by stray noises.
Plus, there have been administrations where the schools marching band was practicing right next to the building the test was being administered in.
As far as I can tell, part of the justification for the no earplugs policy (they used to allow them) is to make sure students can and do hear the instructions and the section time notifications (like 5 minutes left or section over, move ahead to the next section).
There also may be and I suspect that other reasons for the policy change and prohibition of them is related to test security to prevent cheating due to all the new tech communication devices that have become available. There are ones you can hide inconspicuously in your ear, communicate with, and use as a method to get assistance with the test while taking it to cheat your way into a higher score.
may I also say, that if you side with those who would not make a simple gesture as sharing an answer key, that you too are a c*nt?
Sir, if you legitimately obtain your LSAT materials the answer keys are included. Unless LSAC made a policy change I'm unaware of that first started being applied to the December 2009 test (they did not!), it is and has always been the case that if you take the test and cancel your score, when scores are released you have access to the full test you took AND
the corresponding answer key. You just don't get to see the answer choices you selected.
LSAC has not changed that policy:http://www.lsac.org/pdfs/InformationBookweb.pdf
"If you cancel your score, you will not receive a score or copy of your answer sheet. You will receive written notification of a score cancellation and, if you took a disclosed test, you will receive a copy of the test questions and the credited responses for the scored sections as well."
Cussing at and referring to people with derogatory terms for refusing to break the law and the legally binding
agreement they entered into with LSAC to take the test to try to get into Law School illustrates your character and lack of ethics.
If you actually did take the December test did you look carefully at your available candidate and test disclosure information on the LSAC web page while logged in? There are multiple files in PDF form that you have to download individually.
If in fact you have a copy of the December test and do not have the answer key there are two main possibilities:
#1 You didn't actually take the test and are infringing copyrights by getting the test files from someone that did take it but they didn't also email you their candidate score report (the document that contains the answer key).
#2 You did take the test and simply haven't found the candidate score report pdf file in your account.
Based on your behavior/posts you seem to be a dishonest person that lacks good moral character, honesty and integrity.
Please stop being a hostile jack-arse.
