Law School Applications / Getting a copy of a disposition
« on: October 10, 2005, 04:01:14 PM »
This school wants me to forward them a copy of the final disposition of a MIP I got when I was 17. First of all, I find this fking stupid and irrelevant. That said, anyone know how to go about doing this? Is there any chance Ill get this before the end of the month?

Studying for the LSAT / Frequently missed questions
« on: August 23, 2005, 09:23:56 PM »
Ok, so I've finished my first 10 practice tests, and Ive compiled a list of frequently missed questions. My average score has been a 168, with a few 171's - I need at least a 170, preferably a 175. I'm not sure about the distribution of questions, so I may be missing some of these at a dispropotionately high rate, while others may be frequently missed, but just as frequently present on tests. Here's the list...

If its there, I missed it at least once - if more, the number at the end indicates just how much more.

 I'm not really worried about games at all. RC is hit or miss, as its usually either - 1 to 3 or its - 5+. LR is consistently - 3 to 5 (per section). So whats the word? I imagine some of you powerscore/LRB devotees have a method for every type of question. Ive got 23 tests to go, and I'm confident that, with the right studying, I can get that 175. As always, many thanks to anyone who takes the time to help me out.

LSAT horror stories / Score swings
« on: August 12, 2005, 12:17:16 PM »
I feel like quitting. My last 5 practice tests went 168,168,168,168,171. Last night - 163. Had it been the real deal, I wouldnt be going to law school. (Ive got a 3.16) It wasnt a bad night or anything, I just caught some tough breaks on top of the usual mistakes. Anyone else experience this? The gravity of this test and the possibility of an 8 point swing scares me to death.

LSAC and LSDAS / LSAC Transcript forms
« on: July 29, 2005, 09:34:16 AM »
I've been trying to get the forms from online, but LSAC says that I have no schools entered in my academic profile. When I go to my academic profile, it shows my degree granting school, and provides me with no way to enter the other schools I've attended. Anyone know whats goin on?

Studying for the LSAT / Games Question: Four Flasks, Oct. 1994
« on: July 20, 2005, 11:12:52 PM »
Hey folks, Im new here - been lurking for quite some time. I usually find games to be a breeze, but this one stopped me dead in my tracks. Specifically, the second iteration questions. The rules dont specify as to, when mixing, say, flask 1 and 3 together, which flask the new  mixture is contained in. Consequently, the rules can't be applied to future mixtures because the rules are based off the flask numbers, not the color of their contents. Of course, one could map out all of the possibilities, but, based on my experience with other games, the incredibly small amount of empty space available on the test page, and the insane scale of this test, I can only describe that as completely fking unreasonable. What am I missing?
