Couple threads on another discussion board seem to lend some credence to a December 23rd release. We'll see...

Studying for the LSAT / Re: How have ppl "dealt" will their scores?
« on: December 21, 2008, 07:37:16 AM »
I've lived through 4 catastrophic illnesses, the murder of two friends, and an armed invasion of my workplace by a knife-wielding assailant who stabbed someone in front of me, therefore I will not be too affected by my LSAT score when I receive it. 

So when I get my score I'll just take a deep breath and wait for the schools to which I've already applied to make their decision.  No matter what it is, it's not the end of the world.

Damn. At least you drive a Jeep.

I don't have the book on me but it would guess the stimulus goes something like this.....if someone does X, then they deserve punishment. They concluded from this that because someone is punished, they must have done X.

The answer choice says...Mistakes being sufficient (i.e. doing X) to justify punishment for being required to justify punishment. 

This would be correct because there could be many things that could warrant punishment besides doing X. The wording is funny though and I could understand how you would misinterpret it.

Thanks, that explains it!

So I'm reading the LR Bible and this potential answer choice for mistakes in reversal makes no sense to me:

"Mistakes being sufficient to justify punishment for being required to justify it." (page 376)

Does that make any sense to anyone else?

Has 100 questions been the norm lately, not 101?

I've been studying pretty regularly for about 6 weeks now. I plan to take a practice test a day (except Thursday, my day off), two on Saturday, and on Sunday I have my LSAT review class. Otherwise, I'll use my time to review incorrect answers, and study weak areas in the Bibles.

Good luck!!

Thanks, Earlcat. That makes sense. I'll still get through the preptests timed, but I'll use some of the pre-2000 LSATS to break up and just sit for an hour and work through a section slowly focusing on the logic.
