Ridiculous earplugs questions
« on: September 08, 2008, 02:11:48 PM »
Ok, so I know on the LSAC website it says that you can't bring earplugs to the test.

My problem is in my class, a new guy just transferred in and is a ridiculously loud underliner.  I know that sounds really crazy, but it's true.  And not only is he abnormally loud, he underlines EVERYTHING.  The RC passages, the questions, the answer choices, LR, all of it.  It is the most distracting thing I (and everyone else in my class) have ever heard.

I know we're going to be in different test centers because I made a point of finding out where he's taking.  Do you think it would be ok to wear earplugs during our next 2 class practice tests, or should I not so I can get used to what I seriously doubt it'll sound like when I take the real test? (as a side note- I have taken the test before and the normal page flipping noises and markings don't bother me- it's just this guy)

Haha...thanks for any input!

You know that sounds like a really good idea.  But ironically, his car was towed before the last class and he still was able to make it.  I'm not kidding.

If time travel is an option, just freeze time during the practice tests and finish the questions at your leisure.  I was trying to be realistic.

ya'll are killin me...

So we decided to forgo earplugs and had a pre-test intervention last night.  He felt really bad about all the loud underlining.  And the toe-tapping (I don't know if I even mentioned that before). 
He  blamed it on the sharpness of his pencil and the amount of paper under the page that he was writing on.  ???


And he still underlined the entire test.

Use the earplugs.  For the practice tests, of course.
