General Off-Topic Board / Air Force Commercial
« on: January 17, 2005, 10:27:26 PM »
OK, i just saw a commercial on TV for the Air Force. It starts with a high school kid in the cafateria asking people for parts of their lunch - an apple, a bag of potato chips, and then a sandwich. In the next scene you see him out on the street, giving the food to a homeless guy. Then the scene changes to a C-130 cargo plane, dropping big parachuted bundles labeled "FOOD" out of the cargo hold.

Jesus, is this the only way that our Air Force can get people to sign up? Its shocking that they are taking advantage of this humanitarian crisis to trick people into a 4 or 6 year stint, and it will probably work. Disgusting.

General Off-Topic Board / ASU Law School Anti-Gay Student Organization

Did anyone see this article:

"A legal confrontation is playing out here as a student organization seeks official recognition and money from a state-run university even though the students plan to exclude non-Christians and gays.

A group of Christian students at Arizona State University's law school formed a chapter of the Christian Legal Society, a national organization that unites Christian lawyers and law students for fellowship, mutual legal support, meetings and Bible readings."


You can read the rest here:

What a bunch of bigot assholes.

Studying for the LSAT / RC - Summarize paragraphs?
« on: November 22, 2004, 04:31:47 PM »
My RC section is by far my worst section, and i'm struggling with finding a strategy to improve my score. Sometimes i do well on the section, but sometimes i do horribly, and it seems to have little to do with the subject matter. It will probably always be my worst section, but i just want to keep the damage to a minimum on the real thing.

I've tried highlighting/circling key phrases, but i've never studied this way and it doesn't seem to help at all. I've read that quick paraphrases of the paragraphs can be helpful, and it might fit my style better, but its hard for me to be briefly analyze some of these paragraphs! Does anybody have advice or strategies that might help? Does anyone use the paraphrase method to some success - any tips?

Thanks all!

I'm just wondering if anyone has taken the Steven Klein LSAT Prep course in Seattle. It's an alternative to the bigger corporate options out there and only offered here in Seattle, but i would love to hear from someone who has taken it. The guy sounds pretty serious, and i have had it recommended to me but only via a friend of a friend kind of thing.

His website is:  www.stevenklein.com

TIA
