Studying for the LSAT / June 1996 3rd Game Question 13
« on: August 31, 2005, 05:48:13 PM »
Hi!  Help!  I'm totally confused by something.  The third game on the June 96 test is as follows:

Each of two boats, boat 1 and boat 2, will be assigned exactly four people.  Exactly eight people, three adults - F, G, and H - and five children - V, W, X, Y, and Z - must be assigned to the boats according to the following conditions:

Each boat is assigned at least one adult.
If F is assigned to boat 2, G is assigned to boat 2.
If V is assigned to boat 1, W is assigned to boat 2.
X and Z are assigned to different boats.

Now.. question 13 states, "Which one of the following is an acceptable assignment of people to boat 1?

A) F, G, H, X
B) F, H, W, Y
C) F, H, Y, Z
D) F, V, W, X
E) G, H, X, Y

Using the contrapositive of rule 2 (F2 --> G2), you get F1 --> G1 according to the Logic Games Bible description of the way to use a "two value system". (page 110)  Yet the test answer is C in which F and G are not in the same boat.  According to the LGB, this should be wrong.  Any help??

Thanks!!

Studying for the LSAT / stupid conditional rules again
« on: July 26, 2005, 05:52:00 PM »
Ok people.. I need help.

R is not scheduled for Thursday unless L is scheduled for Monday.

So, if L IS scheduled for Monday, is R not scheduled for Thursday?  One of the answers was "R is scheduled for Thursday."  which I erroneously chose.  The LGB explanation for why this is not the case is that this selection "reverses" the rule.  I asked about this sort of thing before and thought I had it figured out, but I guess not.

thanks

Studying for the LSAT / contrapositive problems
« on: June 27, 2005, 07:30:31 PM »
Hey all.. I'm working on the LGB.. I always seem to miss a few key inferences and it's driving me nuts.  Anyway, I'm having a problem with the contrapositive as I get further into the book.  Can anyone tell me if I'm correct about this?

Ok so lets say if J is not chosen, S is chosen.

Not J --->  S

Not S --->  J

Does this not also mean that J and S can never be chosen together?  I seem to be making an incorrect inference with this, because the answer includes both appearing together. I just automatically jump to "J and S will not be together" after reading the rules.  Any help?
Thanks

Canadian Law Students / Eh?
« on: June 09, 2005, 07:44:49 PM »
Forgive me if this questions betrays ignorance on my part, but why would a university state that their application deadline is Nov 1, yet they will accept the February LSAT?  Is it possible to apply without having taken the LSAT??  Any help would be appreciated.

Studying for the LSAT / am I right?
« on: June 07, 2005, 07:20:43 PM »
Hi.  If I understand correctly, there is always one additional section to the test that is unscored and is used for determining future LSAT questions.  If this is the case, which section appeared more than it should have on the June LSAT?

Studying for the LSAT / question about mastery of logic games
« on: June 03, 2005, 11:51:45 PM »
Ok so I'm someone who doesn't have too much difficulty with the LR and RC components of the test.. few questions wrong here or there on the first couple of practice tests, but I get the same type wrong every time and I've got some sources to use i order to correct those errors.  When it comes to the logic games, the first one I attempted with no training resulted in 3 out of 6 questions right.  I had no experience with the LGB or anything, and really didn't have much of a clue on the best way to diagram any of the info.  After doing poorly with that question I figured I should read the LGB rather than waste my time doing a whole prep test section without the proper skills.  Now I've read through the first 40 pages of the LGB on linear games in hte past couple days and done the practice exercises.. while I have learned a LOT, I still don't feel too confident about linear games that are not a one to one setup.  Am I just worrying too early?  I haven't done any practice questions besides the first few LGB exercises.  Should I really expect to catch on right away or is it a skill that truly takes a lot of time even with the LGB?  Should you reread the chapters repeatedly?  Any advice?

Studying for the LSAT / Omitted info in LGB?
« on: June 03, 2005, 09:47:43 PM »
Hey guys.. just wondering if anyone noticed in the LGB that occasionally something won't make sense, or a possible scenario is left out of the answers?  Thanks

Canadian Law Students / Health Law
« on: May 28, 2005, 03:50:51 PM »
Any idea what the best school is in Canada to practice Health Law?  What kind of jobs can one get in that field?  It's one stream of law that interests me quite a bit, but I'm not sure what you can actually do with it.  Thanks :D

Canadian Law Students / small school vs large school?

In my UNB thread, it was said that law firms prefer bigger schools.  Has that been anyone elses experience as well?  Thanks :)
