Financial Aid / crap credit score, but I got that PLUS loan
« on: June 18, 2009, 01:41:46 PM »
I have read so many posts about 700+ credit scores and oh gosh will I get the PLUS loan approval?? so I wanted to share a...less than check/GradPLUS story:

My credit score is poor (595), but I got approved for my Grad PLUS loan yesterday! I have been hard at work improving my report for the past year, but the score itself did not budge and there were records of "more than 90 days past due" within the past three years (just none that were current). Good enough, skated thru and got that loan approval!


Law School Admissions / impulse to send out one more application?
« on: January 11, 2009, 07:58:51 PM »
Anyone else feel the need to send out just one more application, perhaps across the country, even though it's January? While I wait for my decisions, I have considered sending out yet another app because 1) it's cold outside and 2) I haven't heard back from all my damn schools yet.

By my numbers, I am not an auto-admit at most of the schools I applied to. Anyone else guessing it'll be oh, March, before you know?

General Off-Topic Board / obama mccain astrology

Obama is a Leo, while McCain is  a Virgo. Your wiki primer on astrology below. Now, c'mon, is it even a contest?

 - Leo (The Lion) (fixed, fire, social): Keyword: "I will". The Leo person is creative, generous, proud, fun-loving, dramatic, dignified, theatrical, passionate, affectionate, ardent, ambitious, loves attention, independent, noble, a leader, sunny, naive, magnetic, kingly, and powerful. They can also sometimes be bossy, jealous, patronizing, promiscuous, snobbish, egotistical, boastful, over self-conscious, and arrogant. Leos like to think that they are special and important. They love attention, and will do anything to get it. Suitable occupations are where leadership, bossiness, and powerful self-assurance can be displayed; such as manager, director, social organizer, chairperson, acting, person of the year. In medical astrology Leo governs the heart and spine. In astrology Leo is ruled by the Sun. The sun sign dates for Leo are July 23 August 22.[10] The fire form of Leo is a controlled bonfire.

 - Virgo (The Virgin) (mutable, earth, social): Keyword: "I analyze". The Virgo person is practical, industrious, efficient, thorough, methodical, exacting, precise, detail-oriented, observant, intelligent, critical, work and service oriented, painstaking, pragmatic, modest, discreet, health and cleanliness conscious, mentally active, and flexible. They can also be fussy, nervous, pedantic, petty, and over-critical. Virgos often have a long beautiful neck and can be careless with fingernails. Suitable occupations are where analytical and practical, methodical qualities are needed; such as teacher, psychologist, nursing and health and hygiene sectors, scientist, accountant, secretary, inspector. In medical astrology Virgo governs the intestines and digestion. Their is some debate in regards to a modern ruler of this sign with Pallas, Chiron, Ceres and Vesta often considered candidates by some modern astrologers, but the planet Mercury is typically used as the default by tradition. The sun sign dates for Virgo are August 23 September 22.[11] The earth form of Virgo is a full grown harvest. Totem animal is the Bushbaby.

Maybe McCain could be Obama's personal assistant.
p.s. should I be looking at the ageism/racism factors instead?

Studying for the LSAT / PT 10, Section II question 4
« on: May 26, 2008, 07:17:45 PM »
For the conditions, I wrote:
Jan   (Kathy)
Mike       (Fred/Laura)

I did not know how to diagram question 4. Do I use poe?
i.e. level 1   level 2    level 3
     1,2,3,    1,2,3      1,2,3  , um, for each choice?

a. So, level 2 fred, kathy,
then level one could still have ida, glen, jan and level two could be laura or mike so that's not it...

b. Or, level 2 fred and mike
then level one could have ida glen jan or kathy so that's not it.

c. Or level two has Hilary and Jan
So level one must be Ida Glen and Kathy and Level Two also contains Mike and Nick Fred and Laura are left so they must be in level three...

OK, so I get c, it's apparently the right answer but this just took me twenty minutes. And I don't trust my analysis. Why does it have to be Mike in two?  :-\
Help Jeffort, LSatHell, LSAT Hero, Earl Cat, et al....

So, I am doing LSAT preptests 7-18 this week...

In test 7, section one, I got numbers 12, 16, and 19 wrong. They all ask a variation of "If all of the above is true, which of these answers is also true?

Does anyone have a process by which they answer these types of questions?
