earplugs are not allowed

That is funny my testing center provided everyone with earplugs.

 ???

Where and when?  Was it some old lady proctor that didn't read the rules that wanted to help the students out and made a trip to Walmart with her Visa card? 

lmao! that would be great.I hope I get someone like that, maybe I can squeeze an extra 15 min per section out of my proctors.  ::)

I have applied to NESL, Northeastern and Suffolk. It all depends on the Feb. LSAT for me, I got a 151 which is about right to get into NESL, so if I raise my score in Feb, I should be able to get into Suffolk and or Northeastern depending on how well I do. I've been testing in the 160's, but my regular school just started up  ::) after all of this law school talk and discussion, under grad is really bugging me at this point in time. Especially writing my senior thesis  >:(

earplugs are not allowed

that's such a stupid rule. Normally, I would have a better way to describe it, but that is just an awful rule. I could see the problem with someone coming in with a recording or something in their ear, but if it is a sealed pack of ear plugs, I wouldnt see what the real problem was.



Yeah, it is kinda lame.  They used to allow ear plugs a long time ago.  I think part of the rational is being able to hear the fire alarm if it goes off and being able to hear instructions from the proctor about 5 minute warning, when to move onto the next section etc. 

At the rate things are going it would not surprise me if clothing other than underwear shoes and socks gets banned at some point.  Right now you are supposed to only be able to bring in your stuff (personal items, etc.) in a one gallon clear ziplock back and are not allowed to wear a hood (like a hood on a sweatshirt), bring in a cell phone, etc.

Welcome to the world of today.  Just look at all the stuff the DHS keeps changing and doing for airport security. 

The world is going crazy!  :D
And I think a lot of the blame can be put on supposed technology 'advances', and of course, of all things LAWYERS! ha ha   


hahaha, good point. I understand the 5 minute call and the proctor saying stop, but if you have ear plugs in, u do not go deaf. Just imo, i think they dont want anyone to have an unfair advantage.

Can you wear ear plugs, like guitarists wear or people that sleep next to dogs who snore (wink wink), the latter being me.

I wouldn't mind wearing ear plugs to keep all the BS out...or is this not allowed?

Studying for the LSAT / Starting to burn out a little bit
« on: January 17, 2008, 05:47:54 PM »
I have been studying 3-4 hours a day since the end of November and I am starting to look at questions, get them right but feel no motivation to keep doing it anymore. Anyone recommend taking a few days off or will that be LSAT suicide? (taking test Feb 2008- which i read is the hardest EVER - jk)

My Logic Games are solid, getting 1 or 2 wrong per section.
My LR Section (as I said in another post) is around 5-7 wrong per section.
My Reading Comp is the weakest at 7-9 wrong per section.

Figuring that I'd get about 80 questions right, that leaves me 80/101, which isn't bad. It's not a 170, but I don't see myself getting a 170 either. 160-165 is my goal.

Any personal experience would help.

Mike
