Anyone willing to read my DS? I've been working on this for quite some time but I'm still not satisfied with it. I'd really appreciate some input!

Studying for the LSAT / Anyone else just get an email from Testmasters?

Damn Testmasters...my stomach did a back-flip when I read "Law School" in the subject line...you can't do that the night before the LSAT scores are released...

I realize that I may be the only person on LSD who is confused with this question but I'm setting aside my pride for now...

The LR question was:

"We can't know someone's intentions, we can only know consequences of actions, thus we can judge morality only based on consequences of actions" *ASSUMPTION*

Will someone please explain to me why TCR is "Knowing intentions are indispensable to moral judgment"? I keep looking at this question and am still a bit confused...

If knowing intentions are absolutely necessary to moral judgment (as TCR suggests), how can one conclude that we can judge morality without that necessary condition? That is, if TCR = moral judgment --> knowing intentions, wouldn't the contrapositive of that TCR mean "~knowing intentions, then ~moral judgment". The stimulus starts off by saying that we can't know intentions. So, assuming TCR, wouldn't we conclude that we can't have moral judgment (which is not what the stimulus concludes?)

Sorry if this doesn't make any sense and I'm completely misinterpreting the question...I'd appreciate any clarification, though

Say you improved your December score by 5+ points...are you planning on writing an addendum to explain why the first score should not be considered representative (i.e., why the adcomms should focus on your higher score rather than the average?)

Studying for the LSAT / For those of you in NYC...

Is anyone interested in getting a "study" group together? That is to say, is anyone interested in meeting up once (or twice, even) a week to take preptests together under realistic test conditions?   I had spent the weeks leading up to the Sept. exam taking preptests (in Starbucks, with ear plugs and nice warm pumpkin spice lattes to keep me calm and comfy) with scores ranging from 171-178 (avg. was prob about 173/174) only to be blind-sided by the Sept. 06 RC section and a not-so-mild anxiety attack in my first LR section. Helloooo December LSAT.

Anyway, I think it would be helpful to take the practice tests under more realistic conditions and with others next to me. Let me know...
