Behold: The future of America’s lawyers!

So working at TestMasters, I come across some truly brilliant people. I’m usually working with students who are studying to get amazing scores on the LSAT in able to get into an amazing law school. For this reason, they normally are pretty bright.

And then there are the students whose well-being I am truly concerned for. The other day I had a student call who was wondering why her online account wasn’t working. Now to access the online account a student must fully enroll. To fully enroll, students must sign a document and email us or fax it back over. Now, this one particular student, we’ll call Jane, informed me that she had sent over the form, and even took a screen image of her computer to prove it. I told her I would look into it and put her on hold. I found the document she sent, opened it, and immediately started laughing. I of course had to stifle my laugh and remain professional when I picked the phone back up and informed her that she could not simply take a picture of the document with her digital camera and send us the image. Her response was, “Oh……really? Oh…okay…” She was very confused and surprised that we would not accept the picture for proper documentation. And yes, she is indeed studying to become a lawyer.

Needless to say, it was the best laugh I’ve had in a long time.
