What's going on everybody? I wanted to let you all know about a recent interview I conducted with Saira Rao, author of the Chambermaid. Chambermaid is a comedy about a federal judicial clerk. If any of you plan on being a federal judge clerk, I'm sure you'll find the book humorous. You can read the interview here:

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Pen Scanners
« on: February 02, 2006, 01:15:37 PM »
I was wondering if anybody has used those handheld pen scanners designed to scan text. It looks like it would come in very handy in law school. Instead of highlighting and having to go back through your case book, you can highlight and plug it directly into your notes on computer. Your thought? Is it worth the $200 investment?

Studying for the LSAT / UPDATED DEC RC LIST
« on: December 04, 2005, 01:14:35 AM »
Here's what I scrapped together from the list. Please, stop bitching about the tacit agreement or the bird question. Let's just focus on adding to the list. Please list any corrections. Thanks.
passage 1 caves
   1. what would author most likely agree with-people had specialized roles
   2. implicite acceptance
passage 2 gluck
    1.tone- tassit or indifferent
   2. what does inheritance mean-
   3. what would author agree with- if people unconciously write more differences will appear
   4. analogy- bird in the air
   5. answer: acknowledged it was male-dominated, but the importance of it was its universal themes
      still not clear what the stimulus was
passage 3 cannadian
   1. point of first paragraph-
   2.what passage said about individual and property rights
   3.how does the author feel about the laws...will they change and does he think they should- a certain judges would respect communal laws and author would be glad
   4.
passage 4 embryo
   For the embryo questions- some that I remember and the answer choices that I think were correct:
   1) What is meant by conservation of mechanism- analogous parts come about by same method
   2) What is differnt between frog/fruit flies- fruit flies take longer to set poles
   3) What can be inferred- scentists know how most simple vertebrates polarize OR there will be more experiement done to find out human polarization
   4) What can we know about human poolartization- it takes longer(or more division) to polarize then reptiles
   5) What is the point of third or secon paragraph- to demonstrate various ways that animals can polarize

Studying for the LSAT / Private tutors
« on: October 24, 2005, 10:42:50 PM »
I'm planning to retake the LSAT. I've pretty much used up all my materials. My problem on the October test was LR. I missed an unprecedent 20 total. This has been my weakest section and the one that has challenged me the most. By studying on my own and with the help of my wife I was able to get down to about 7-10 wrong consistenly on LR. On test day I just got psyched out. I'm thinking a private tutor will help drive in LR stuff that I've learned on my own in the Bible and bolster my confidence. What are your thoughts? Are private  tutors worth the investment?

Where should I go next fall? / Should I retake the LSAT?
« on: October 23, 2005, 08:51:21 PM »
I know several people have already post questions like this, but I was wondering if I should retake. As you can see on my preptests scores, the weeks before the actual test I was consistently scoring in the low 160s. I was really happy with it, because if I were to score a 160-162 I'd be looking at a full tuition scholarship at Tulsa or partial scholarship at Oklahoma. But come test day I scored 157. I missed an unprecedent 19 on LR. My problem is not getting in to the schools I want, my problem is getting the scholarship money I want from them. Is it worth holding my applications in order to take the December test so my chances of getting scholarship money increases or should I just turn them in and take out studnet loans? Or if I were to turn in my applications right now to all the schools I'm thinking about and then take the LSAT in Dec, will they take my score improvement into concideration in deciding scholarship money?
Thnaks.
