I thought it would be nice to talk about admitted students day subsidies.
Berkeley gives $350 for out of state visitors.. I've heard from a friend that Michigan gives $600. Any other facts / anecdotes / tips on how to plan multiple trips at once?

Law School Applications / How does LSAC LOR work
« on: September 24, 2008, 02:37:21 AM »
So I have 2 letters in, waiting on the 3rd one for LSAC general letter service. When I applied to a school, the schools said they received the two letters in about a day. Is it transferred to them electronically? Also, will the 3rd letter get sent to them, even if the law schools' policy is that my app is complete after they receive two?

Law School Applications / Michigan's New "No LSAT" Admissions

LSAT requiredment waived for UMICH undergrads!

Expect Michigan's ranking to go up in the coming years. This policy allows Michigan to fill their in-state residency requirement with high GPA people. While boosting median GPA, it doesn't affect their median LSAT (actually, that means median LSAT will go up, since residents pull down their median LSAT). I expect that it will also increase application volume and yield rate. Very smart move.

Studying for the LSAT / Preptest 3, section 2, #4

Can someone help with this one?

"A work of architecture, if it is to be both inviting an functional for public use, must be unobtrusive, taking second place to the toal environment. Modern architects, plauged by egoism, have violated this precept. They hae let their strong personalities take over their work, producing buildings that are not functional for public use.

which one of the statements below follows logically from the statment in the passage?

I kinda eliminated everything and arrived at the correct answer, b)modern architects who let their strong personalities take over their work produce buildings that are unobtrusive." but the correct answer doesn't seem to be easily drawn from the stimulus... it seems to me like "inviting and functional use" are sufficient conditions and unobtrusive is the necessary condition. how can you infer from the fact that "modern architects, producing buildings thar are not functional for public use" get that the modern architect produce buildings that are not unobtrusive? That seems like a mistaken negative to me..It seems like the really old exams sometimes don't abide strictly by the necessary/sufficient rule..

Studying for the LSAT / Preptest 4, section 4, #9

can someone explain this problem? the question seems to have the sufficient and necessary condition backwards, but then it does say "requirement."

"A scientific theory is a good theory if it satisfies two requirements: it must accurately describe a large class of observation and it must make definite predictions about the results of future observations."

The answer only works if you assume that the 2 requirements are the necessary condition. But the "if" clause makes me believe that those two, met together, are merely the sufficient condition.. (i.e. there can be other ways in which scientific theory can be a good theory). can someone please explain?

Studying for the LSAT / Preptest #8 (Answer Typo?)
« on: May 26, 2008, 10:09:14 PM »
Does anyone know the answer to Preptest 8 Section 1 (Logical Reasoning Question #9?) I think it's a typo... Kaplan's explanation and the Nova explanations are kinda funny cuz the Kaplan one says D is correct and Nova says C is correct, while having their own explanations to it... does anyone have the LSAC key, or mind clarifying the answer?

Studying for the LSAT / Preptest 39 Section 2 Question 10
« on: May 22, 2008, 09:42:00 PM »
Can someone pleez help me with this?

Claude: [blah blah] France should hold referenda on major foreign-policy issues...[blah]
Lorraine: [blah] Therefore, the introduction of such referenda would lead to foreign-policy disaster.

10. Which one of hte following, if true, provide the most support for Lorrain's conclusion?
Answer is C) Decision by refrendum would make the overall course of policy unpredictable, and countries frinedly to France could not make reasonable decisoins based on a consistent french line.

I eliminated everyhting else, but I thought C was a weakener. Lorraine's conclusion is referenda would lead to froeign-policy disaster. C says referendum would make decisions upredictable..if friendly foreign countries could not make decisions based on CONSISTENT french line, wouldn't it be good that it makes decisions unpredictable (i.e. inconsistent)?
