    Does anyone know how they can see what we're writing on our scratch paper? Not beforehand when they ask to look at our blank sheets, but during the exam while we're working anything out? Isn't the camera focused on our faces?

    @cinnamonrolls They can't see what you are writing based on webcam angle, nor do they really care. You show them yourself ripping up your scratch paper at the end of the exam, with the presumption that you will then throw away that paper. I think the only security concern would be if someone tried to transcribe questions on their scratch paper and leak them, which would obviously get a score invalidated.

    Does anyone (June Flex takers, maybe) know if an earbuds mic is acceptable? The internal mic on my computer doesn't work, and I'm wanting to confirm that having earbuds in, at least at the beginning to talk to the proctor, will be okay.

    Looking for clarification on this:

    Due to my home's poor internet (it drops out every 15-20 minutes) I'm using one of my univeristy's private group study rooms in the library for the test. I've been studying here for a few weeks leading up to the test and due to covid there are maybe 5 people in the library at a time. Should this be an issue? The study rooms are tucked away in a corner of the library and I've seen no one by them or in them so far.

    @cubsfanwcg I have a feeling that unless you have accommodations that grant you this you will not be allowed to use any kind of ear "wear"--you are literally told to remove any large jewelry and show your ears to the webcam so they can see there is nothing in/on them. Also, at no point did I actually hear my proctor so that was not an issue (you can type your responses).

    Does anyone know if we need an essay sample to know the score on 7/30? From what I searched, though it says it is required for score disclosure on the official LSAC site, there was also a statement somewhere that says the policy for requirement will be re-enacted for August lsat. Does that mean I dont need one to know my July score on the 30th?

    As far as I know, you don’t need one to know your score, BUT the schools won’t see the score (or won’t look at the application) until they have both the score and the writing sample on file.
