General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Tulane Bound
« on: June 30, 2005, 01:35:44 PM »

Just wanted to start a thread for those of us who have decided to attend Tulane this fall.  I also wanted to see if everyone has found their housing, or if they're still looking. 

I'm heading out to NO next weekend, July 8th through the 11th to find a place and a roommate.

Law School Applications / LSAT addendum
« on: January 01, 2005, 09:37:48 PM »
I got a 155 in Oct, and then a 167 in Dec.  Truthfully, I don't know why I did so badly in Oct.  In practice tests I had been scoring around 164-168. The only thing I think it could be is that I burned myself out studying all day everyday, and then by the time I took the test I bombed.  For 3 weeks then, I didn't look at the LSAT, (assuming I did better than I did).  And then when I got my score, I began studying but not as much as the first time, just enough to keep my skills fresh. 

Anyways, should I address this in an addendum or let the numbers speak for themselves?

Studying for the LSAT / LR Question
« on: September 22, 2004, 01:58:55 PM »
Recently discovered prehistoric rock paintings on small islands off the northern coast of Norway have  archaeologists puzzled.  The predominant theory about northern cave paintings was that they were largely a description of the current diet of the painters.  This theory cannot be right, because the painters must have needed to eat the sea animals populating the waters north of Norway, if they were to make the long journey to and from the islands, and there are no paintings that unambiguously depict such creatures.

Each of the following, if true, weakens the argument against the predominant theory about northern cave paintings EXCEPT:

A)  Once on these islands, the cave painters hunted and ate land animals.

B)  Parts of the cave paintings on the islands did not survive the centuries.

C)  The cave paintings that were discovered on the islands depicted many land animals.

D)  Those who did the cave paintings that were discovered on the islands had unusually advanced techniques of preserving meats.

E)  The cave paintings on the islands were done by the original inhabitants of the islands who ate the meat of land animals.

Please explain why you chose your answer.

4. October 1999: Jerry Williams of Little Rock, Arkansas was awarded $14,500 and medical expenses after being bitten on the buttocks by his next door neighbor's beagle. The beagle was on a chain in its owner's fenced-in yard. The award was less than sought because the jury felt the dog might have been just a little provoked at the time by Mr. Williams who was shooting it repeatedly with a pellet gun.

Using fossil energy more efficiently is in the interest of the nation and the global environment, but major improvements are unlikely unless proposed government standards are implemented to eliminate products or practices that are among the least efficient in their class.

Objection:  Decisions on energy  use are best left to the operation of the market.

Which one of the following, if true, most directly undermines the objection above?

A) It would be unrealistic to expect society to make the changes necessary to achieve maximum energy efficiency all at once.

B)  There are products, such as automobiles, that consume energy at a sufficient rate that persons who purchase and use them will become conscious of any unusual energy inefficiency in comparison with other products in the same class.

C) Whenever a new mode of generating energy, such as a new fuel, is introduced, a number of support systems, such as a fuel-distribution system, must be created or adapted.

D) When energy prices rise, consumers of energy tend to look for new ways to increase energy efficiency, such as by adding insulation to their houses.

E) Often the purchaser of a product, such as a landlord buying an appliance, chooses on the basis of purchase price because the purchaser is not the person who will pay for the energy used by the product.
