Like all good little test takers I got to the MPRE ahead of schedule, scouted out my room and proceed to wait until the powers that be were ready to check us in. Luckily I had a friend there to gossip with so all was well.
The check in lady from my room announced they were ready to check people in, so we formed a line, readied our IDs and admission tickets and waited some more. When it was my turn I handed her my paperwork and looked down, immediately noticing I should have been at the top of the list, but I wasn't.
MPRE Lady: It's [Woods] right?So the "head" administrator was contacted, and eventually came to see me.
MPRE Lady: You haven't gotten married or changed your name since you registered?
Me: (Looks at left hand) Nope. No marriage. No Witness Protection Program.
MPRE Lady: Please step aside.
A little over 10% of people fail to get the required score by my state. There were 20 people in my room. According to this post, I'm screwed.
Head MPRE Guy: [Elle Woods]?
Head MPRE Guy: You're going to need to come with me Ms. Woods.
(At this point I'm just hoping they tell me I'm not allowed to take it since I'm so annoyed I want no part of a 2 hour test).
Head MPRE Guy: You're were in the wrong room.
Me: Umm, no, I wasn't.
Head MPRE Guy: Yes you were, you're registered with your last name as [Elle].
(Immediately I realize this is most likely a "user error" as I regularly do stupid things like this when it comes to data entry).
Head MPRE Guy: At least once per test the system screws it up somehow.
Me: Ohh, I'm sure it was me, you don't have to pretend, I'm not going to freak out and do badly as a result of something like that.
Head MPRE: (Blank Look).
Me: You don't have to lead me over to the other room, surprisingly, I can read the signs.
