Bar exam, Day 1

Belongings have been reduced to what can fit inside a see-through plastic bag.

We were told we had to be seated by 8:20. We started our test at 9:45. The proctor misread "pencil" and several other words. She took long pauses. She kept telling us to be quiet.

I took out an earplug at one point and heard a great big clattering of keys, much louder than the tapping during my final exams.

Nothing but the screen for 3 hours.

Brief break of sunlight.

Fingerprinted ourselves. Screen for 3 hours.

Sat through another 30 minutes of instructions from the lady who cannot read. Seriously, the other testing room left 40 minutes before we did. Where are the evals when you need them?
