Recommendations / Early Action Deadline: November 1st, 2005.
« on: October 08, 2005, 04:43:41 PM »
If my deadline is on Nov 1st, and my recommender is asking to give her the exact deadline, what date should I give her?

Basically, my question is: does LSDAS need to receive my app by Nov 1st or does it have to be deposited in the mail before Nov 1st?

Studying for the LSAT / Specialized LSAT advice needed
« on: June 27, 2005, 08:12:09 PM »
I'm going to retake the test in October. But now I feel like I need to start my preparation from scratch. I think I know most of the strategies from the prep course, books and I've been on this board for quite a while.

What should I do? I have three months to study till the next test.

Studying for the LSAT / Dec 96 LR Question
« on: May 04, 2005, 04:40:36 PM »
Can anyone explain what should be the answer and why?



Raising the tax rate on essential goods - a traditional means of increasing govemment revenues—invariably turns low and middle income taxpayers against the government. Hence government officials have proposed adding a new tax on pruchases of luxury items such as yachts, private planes, jewels, and furs. The officials claim that this tax will result in a substantial increase in government revenues while affecting only the wealthy individuals and corporations who can afford to purchase such items.

The answer to which one of the following questions would be most relevant in evaluating the accuracy of the government officials' prediction?

(A) Will luxury goods be taxed at a higher rate than that at which essential goods are currently taxed?
(B) Will be revenues generated by the proposed tax be comparable to those that are currently being generated by taxes on essential goods?
(C) Will sales of the luxury items subject to the proposed tax occur at current rates once the proposed tax on luxury items has been passed?
(D) Will the proposed tax on luxury items win support for the government in the eyes of low-and middle-income taxpayers?
(E) Will purchases of luxury items by corporations account for more of the revenue generated by the proposed tax than will purchases of luxury items by wealthy individuals?

Personal Statement / A dramatic PS by a non-native speaker

Can anyone review my personal statement? I'm a refugee from a former Soviet Union, so tried to emphasize it properly in the personal statement.

I will gladly appreciate any input concerning sentence structure, syntaxis and style. I can send it to your email.
