Studying for the LSAT / Sept. LSAT, RC sections?
« on: September 30, 2007, 01:11:16 AM »
Ok guys, I got a friend to take the LSAT on my recommendation, so I'm running through the test with him today. He did 40+ prep tests he got from me, so he was pretty well prepared, but there's one thing he told me that has me somewhat surprised...

His sections where as follows; LR, RC, LG, LR, RC.

On this account I would almost certainly expect that the first RC was experimental, LSAC has always(?) put the experimental before the break, however his 2nd RC did not have a comparative passage. It was my understanding that all official sections would have a comparative passage, is this incorrect? Could they have put in the experimental as his 5th section?

Anyone else here a fan and/or practitioner? Or am I the only barbaric freak going for law school?

Incoming 1Ls / Deferring
« on: May 22, 2007, 04:07:59 PM »
Right, one thread I really didn't want to write, but anyway, seems I need some answers here, so I hope someone knows...

1) Is it possible to apply for a deferral of one year, or is this something that is only initiated on the school's behalf?
2) If yes to first, is it also possible to apply after having committed and paid seat deposits, or am I now past the point of no return?
3) By asking for a deferral, would I risk losing my current spot? I'm not exactly top of NYU's wishlist, maybe they'd rather drop me than postpone me...

I probably have other questions too, but too confused to remember them right now....

General Off-Topic Board / 'Charged' for a crime
« on: May 18, 2007, 07:12:22 AM »
Seeing that legal terms aren't the same globally, could someone give me a solid definition of what it means to be charged for a crime (thinking of the context of law school apps and ABA rules etc). I have been questioned as a suspect in a criminal case, but the police dropped the case due to lack of evidence. Was I charged? Or are you only charged when the DA decides to make it formal?

General Off-Topic Board / Sources: 4th amendment / privacy issues
« on: April 29, 2007, 02:08:46 AM »
Ok, here's the kicker. I'm writing a mini-thesis (15-20 pages) on the current status of the Bush administration's effect on the 4th amendment for private citizens in the US for a class in American politics. Is there any chance someone here could recommend a few good sources to non-extremist articles on the issue? Internet-based preferable, but I don't mind buying a book or two if it's worth it. Like I said, I'm not looking for neither the Bush is Satan or Bush is a Saint extremist views, I really want sources that are somewhat balanced and reasonable (does this still exist?)


Site Suggestions and Announcements / Moderators

Any chance to apppoint a few moderators to the site? As much as I appreciate free speech and all of this, the xoxohth trolling invasions are starting to get quite old by now, someone to take out the trash wouldn't hurt.

General Off-Topic Board / LSAT pronounciation
« on: December 12, 2006, 02:01:14 PM »
So, is it L-SAT or L-S-A-T ?

Had a lengthy debate on this at the London test center, and even the Americans didn't seem to agree...

General Off-Topic Board / GMAT prep tests?
« on: December 11, 2006, 10:24:49 AM »
Anyone got any idea if some GMAT prep tests are available somewhere on the net? Not that I'm looking at a MBA; but got time to kill and would be interesting to see how hard they are :)

Law School Admissions / LSAC and delaying for next cycle
« on: December 11, 2006, 09:26:15 AM »
I assume at least someone here has applied for more than one cycle, how does the LSDAS reports reflect this? If I decide to delay until next cycle, will my current LORs, transcripts etc be purged, or will the remain part of my report package, and anything new I add become additional to this?

If that is the case, it would probably be easier to open a new account... I realize this is difficult for Americans with SSN and stuff, but in my case that would probably not be too complicated at all...
