Along the lines of the December LSAT, I don't complain about employees at their work, but there was a lot of cell phone rule breaking at my test site that wasn't enforced. Multiple people had cell phones and were only told to turn them off. One person's cell phone went off after the break during section 4 and it was only confiscated for the test. I thought bring a cell phone to the test site warranted automatic dismissal? I am not going to call and complain because I don't like to affect people's employments, but perhaps it should be stressed more firmly to the proctors that cell phones are STRICTLY prohibited.
That sucks, sorry you had to endure the distractions.
Maybe this will sound like an 'old guy' rant, but I just cannot understand why people think they cannot or actually cannot live and function without a cell phone/all in one mobile iDevice in their hands whenever they leave home, not even for half of a Saturday when they know ahead of time where they are going and about what time they will be done.
It's really not that hard to arrange for a ride and pick-up in advance if you don't drive yourself to the test center. Nothing earth-shattering requiring your immediate attention is going to pop up on facebook or twitter that cannot wait until late afternoon or evening for your comments.
I think you should lodge a test center complaint with LSAC about the lax proctors not enforcing the electronic device prohibition. From what I know LSAC is putting a lot of resources and effort into quality control of test sites and proctors, but they only know of problems that need to be addressed if somebody tells them since they are not at the test sites and the proctors are contracted/hired by the test center.
