Bar Exam / Re: Tennessee micromash and/or Micromash MBE
« on: June 09, 2006, 11:24:40 AM »
The new version of Micromash in absolute junk so becareful you get the older version.  I used it on previous bar exams and it was great.  Since they've "updated" and more fully merged with Thomson, tons of errors.  Buyer Beware!

He's one of those guys that thinks he knows it all, better then the professionals, so in his mind, he'll have a 4.0, but the grade on the paper will be 2.0 because they don't know what a great mind he is.  As far as his achievements in life, are we really going to take his word for it?

"Some professors will change the answers to certain multiple-choice questions on their final AFTER it has been given to students -- this way the "correct people" will have scored higher overall than the "incorrect" ones"

^^^^sounds to me like someone couldn't admit they are wrong.  and just HOW does the professor know which mc belongs to which student so they can pick the "correct" one?

Depends on the school you are at.  If you are already at a T1 school, no, why bother, you'll get a job without.  Two friends went to 2 different Tier 1's (Georgetown and Stanford) and neither one did law review.  Both are at big firms making big bucks because of the school.  If you are in a low tier school, then definately do it, unless you've a job waiting, because it shows that you can write even if you are at low tier school

Your law school app asks for this??   Look again, I think you're giving up wayyyy more informatin that needed, unless your going to school in Wisconsin where you get bar admission by graduating from a law school there, which means you have to be morally fit starting law school. otherwise, they don't ask for that info until you are taking the bar because the school doesn't care.  check again!  also, with the bar app., if you keep your nose clean while in law school, then the bar doesn't care, they are just looking to see that you disclosed

here's the thing, students who don't have excess money coming in don't take the LSAT prep classes, which DO make a difference on the LSAT score.  plus, the students without excess money also were more likely to work throughout undergrad, which also affects their gpa.  while this isn't true for everyone with lower lsat's and gpas, it is true for some and has nothing to do with intelligence.  there is also something to be said for years of prepping for the standardized tests while again, the poorer people don't have the years of prepping so for them, the soft factors do not set them up for failure. however, reality is, while the 'soft' factors should look at poverty, they really only look at race, and the right race like black and hispanic.  so the soft factors, as is, do set them up for failure if they came from a family with the same resources as everyone else getting in.  if they came from a family without the resources, and they happen to be the right race, then no reason they can't excel
