Studying for the LSAT / Re: RC Help!
« on: November 05, 2004, 07:45:31 PM »
Have you tried EyeQ?  It was so effective that my reading speed doubled in twelve weeks.  You can search under "eyeq" in this board.

Recommendations / Re: current LOR processing time

I know, I was like ??!!!&&&, too.  I called them after I had my rec faxed.  According to them, to process faxed rec is not as easy as to process mailed ones.  It takes more time because they have to scan them mannually (whatever it means...that's what they told me)into their system.  So supposedly, it will take more than 12 business days for a faxed rec vs 12 business days for a mailed rec.  One more interesting info...when they receive a rec both by fax and mail, they are going to process both of them so I have to inactivate one of them otherwise the duplicate version will be also sent to schools. Can you believe that??? They are so inefficient.  And this system sucks.  I should have just sent them directly to schools.

Good luck to all of you who are waiting for rec to be processed.


Is it just me or does that make absolutely no sense?

(I'm not questioning whether or not they said that, just the underlying logic of what they said.)


I just talked to LSDAS, and they told me it might take longer to process (more than 12 days)faxed LORs than mailed ones since they had to input them mannually.

I am still waiting my LOR to show up, too.  It has been like 3 weeks.  I want my application files to be ready before my LSAT score becomes available.  Does anyone know when scores become available to law schools?  Is it Oct 25th as well?

Studying for the LSAT / LR #15 section C from June 2003
« on: September 24, 2004, 10:36:30 PM »
These are two of answer choices from the section C #15 from Jun 03 test.  Could someone please explain how condition changes using "the only..." or "only...?"  Can they be both diagramed as:

IF Interested in improving Intellects, then Not Interested in (concerned with) Making Money. Right?

---------------------
c) The only people not interested in making money in the business world are people who are interested in improving their intellects.

e) Only people not concerned with making money in the business world are interested in improving their intellects.

The only and only both make a clause necessary, doesn't it? 

Thanks!

I read in some article that complex carbs are good for LSAT study.  I don't know if it's true but it also suggested that bananas were great food to bring on the LSAT day.  But aren't they loaded with sugar?

(Don't laugh at me....I have been eating bananas since then although I really don't like them  :-X)

Non-Traditional Students / Re: Are you non-native?

Thank you for the input. 

It sounds like you don't have that much of a language barrier considering you can read and comprehend fast enough as natives do.  Did you come here when you are  still in HS or before that?  If not, I think your skill is exceptional.  I don't know how you can do that. 

But how about my original question...?  Is there any non native who imporved scores to high 160's?  i guess the answere is still NO then....

Are you an international applicant?  I went UC Berkeley for my undergrad and know that I am not required to take Toefl.  I recently talked to admission people from Boalt and Columbia law, they both told me they would consider the fact that English was not my native language and encouraged me to mention that in my addendum.  I don't think they will level out my LSAT score considering the factor, but they seem to, at least, acknowkedge the fact that the language barrier intereferes with what LSAT tries to reflect. 

My problem with LSAT is speed.  I am always 10-15 min. short to complete all the questions except LG.  I have improved my speed reading working with eyeQ for past 12 weeks, but it is still not good enough.  I see the limitation as being non-native and simply wanted to know if this was something I could overcome or something really impossible to attain.  I thought it would be nice to know someone, if there is any, who is in my situation kickin' butt with LSAT.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Where do you guys study for the lsat's?

Coffee shop or my apt.  At a coffee shop, I use earplugs.  I prefer a coffee shop because I tend to relax too much at home.
