Earplugs are a no

A Next Step student called the LSAC this week to ask about whether earplugs are allowed. It turns out they aren’t, which comes as a bit of a surprise. They didn’t give the student a solid reason; one possibility is that it would be hard to make sure the earplug wasn’t part of some kind of CIA-style communication device.

At any rate, make sure that you’re incorporating normal ambient noise into your practice routine. It could come as a bit of a shock if you’ve done all of your preptests in complete silence, only to be faced by the dropped pencils and toe-tapping inevitable in a room full of nervous type-A’s.
