I would like to teach/consult con law someday and was wondering which schools, besides the obvious T-14 programs, might have a respectable program?  Thank you.

Hi All,

Ok, I have studied the LR Bible and LG Bible and found both to be pretty good.  In fact, my scores have gone up about 13 points since using the books (from a 147 to now a 160).  However, ONLY in the LR section, I cannot seem to get more than 18-20 right each time I take a practice run and get this, every question I get wrong, it's ALWAYS between 2 remaining answer choices and I ALWAYS pick the wrong one. 

I will give you an example:

On PrepTest 50 (Septmeber 2006), Section 4, #4, I had it down to answer choices D and E, I selected D, and the correct answer choice was E.

Same section, #8, I had it down to answer choices A and B, I selected A, and the correct answer choice was B.

I am almost tempted to go with whatever answer choice that contradicts my initial instinct but of course this wouldn't be too smart.

I am kicking-butt in the games (20-24 correct each time) and RC I am working on improving, but it's ok for now.  This LR section is driving me nuts and I feel I can get a great score if I could just pick the right answer choices out of the 2 remaining.  Some of these I've gone back and analyzed why I selected what I did and only on some of them I was able to figure it out.

Have any of you experienced the same thing?  ANY advice any of you could offer we be incredibly appreciated.  Thank you very much.

Studying for the LSAT / Why The Heck are the LR Questions So Hard?
« on: May 07, 2008, 04:23:51 PM »
Ok, I know the LR Section is half the test, but for some reason, I am having problems pinpointing the assumptions.  Especially in the Weaken section.  Anyone have any advice? Should I just shoot myself now?  ;-)

I kick butt in the games section and have been getting almost the entire section correct (at most, 2-3 wrong for the whole section) on practice runs.

It has REALLY been frustrating.  I am using the LR Bible and it's not as informative, in my own opinion, as the LG Bible.  Any tips/advice would be SOOOOO APPRECIATED!

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / What Did Everyone Do Before USN&WR??
« on: April 30, 2008, 01:29:57 PM »
I'd be interested to know what everyone did before USN&WR began it's reign on all of us applicants?  How did the law firms match up all the applicants?  Were the LSATs weighed so heavily back then as they are now?  Etc. etc.?  Not a brain buster here, just curious.

What's the deal with Valparaiso (Jerry Seinfeld impression)?  They've been around for like 129 years and still can't get their crap together?   I see the Bar passage rates are pretty good but the employment rate isn't too hot.  I also heard their 1st year grading is a nightmare.

Anyone have any thoughts/opinions on why Valpo is so crummy?  Yes, I got in there, but just wondering if it is worth pursuing any further at this point.

Where should I go next fall? / What's the Deal With Valparaiso?
« on: April 28, 2008, 02:45:26 PM »
What's the deal With Valparaiso?  Why is it only a T4?  It's been around for 129 years and hasn't been able to clean up its act?  Has pretty good bar passage rates and employment rate is ok.  Anyone have any real thoughts about this.  Thanks.
