So, I took the LSAT last weekend at Northeastern University. I think that I did pretty well, but of course, we'll know for certain in a few weeks. I'm hoping to do well enough to be known as "the white Luis", as Ruthie affectionately calls me now.
So, with the admission slip, there's a list of rules. One of them says to "dress appropriately" because you can't control the temperature of the testing room. Also, it enumerates about a dozen prohibited devices and activities that might be distracting to one's fellow test-takers - alarms, eating and drinking, cell phones, etc.
So the room I'm taking the test in is apparently the only room on Northeastern's campus with heat on this Saturday. About 45 people are stuffed into a relatively small room, and big glass windows face East on a sunny morning. All of this adds up to one hot classroom and a bunch of drowsy test-takers.
I'm sitting next to a very attractive girl - maybe 22-23 years old. At the beginning of the test, she has about 7 layers of clothing on - it's < 0C outside and she followed the LSAC's clothing recommendations. During the test, she gets hot and starts stripping. One layer after the next comes off, until about 3/4 through the test, she's sitting next to me in a bra, a tatoo between her shoulders, and a belly button ring. Far more distracting than any beeping alarm clock, let me tell you! These certainly weren't on the list of prohibited, distracting items ;^) Not that I'm complaining...
