Thanks Mr. Pimp.  Your breakdown of the scenario into numbers helped a lot...however, I'm still bothered by this one thing, so I'd appreciate it if you can help clarify.  The new mass compared to the one old is understandable since the new finding showed that the material reflects 60 times less light per unit of mass.  However, the premises didn't give enough warrant to assume that the brightness (6000 candelas - using your example) in total would be the same as before.  Furthermore, where did they even get the measurement of brightness if they didn't even get the brightness per unit of mass right?  I know I'm reading too much into the question...but it's a type of Must Be True question that doesn't feel Must Be True lol

Hey guys,

I don't get why the correct answer is B.  Shouldn't the previous estimate of Halley's mass be too high instead of too low? greater mass --> more light reflected, and since the new finding actually shows that the brightness is smaller than the brightness thought previously, isn't the new mass actually lower?  What am I not seeing here?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: 6 days to cancel score, not 9

I just called the line, and the message is no longer there!  Press 4 and it goes back to the menu.

Thanks Jeffort.  *sighs*  It's funny, but I probably wouldn't have checked if it wasn't for the board.  Today is exactly  the 9th of that 9 calendar days on that page I was referring to: http://www.lsat.org/LSAC.asp?url=/additional-info/lsat-score.asp  And like someone else said on another thread, the phone was saying 9 calendar days as well.  I did immediately fax in the letter (signed this time) after I realized what I've done.  I can only wait till the morning.  I just gotta roll with the punches and do the best I can.

I canceled my score, and didn't heard anything from LSAC since I canceled 5 days ago.  But then I just looked at my letter and I didn't put in the signature!!!!!!!!!!!!  Am I screwed or what?  I have proof of fax and everything, but do you think I haven't heard from them because I didn't sign the letter. 

Not trying to scare you but I must share this story.  I had a student who was sick on the day of the test a while back but showed up anyway.  After the first section he knew it was not right to be taking that test.  He filled out the cancellation thing on the back of the answer sheet.  He filled out everything and signed it but only filled in ONE of the TWO bubbles that are above one another and did not notice. 

He got a 126 reported when scores came out (not bad for only doing one section and not bubbling in anything for the others, BTW)  LSAC would not do anything for him since he had not filled out the form properly.

Your situation might be different since this guy didn't know there was a problem until scores got released.  But I must say that LSAC is a stickler about the rules, wisely so since so are courts of law and lawyers and things live and die by procedure and deadlines in the practice of law.

Good luck with LSAC.


THat is horrible!  I feel for this guy.  BUt you know what, the website is not even accurate.  One page saids 6 days while another saids 9.  I don't know.  I mean, the site did say if you haven't heard from them within 5 days, you need to call them asap.  It's what I'm gonna do.  I'm trying to calm down here, and I was suppose to out of town tomorrow, but I can't even do anything till this is taken care of.

Oh man, I can't believe this.  I don't even think I'm going to sleep tonight.  I can probably say I'm the first person who made such a stupid mistake like this.  I mean, I was so out of it after the test, that I didn't want to deal with the LSAT for a while.  I was going to write the letter by hand, but decided against it because I wanted it to look official.  What a freaking tragedy.

Thanks, I will.  I'm shaking like a leaf right now because if that prevents me from getting my score canceled from such a stupid mistake....
