Studying for the LSAT / Re: How have ppl "dealt" will their scores?
« on: December 21, 2008, 09:27:32 PM »
Immediately registered and started prepping for a retake. The night we received scores was pretty difficult, but it only took a few days before the sadness and anger turned into motivation. Hopefully I won't have to deal with that feeling again in a week or two. :P

General Off-Topic Board / Re: quirky study habits

I stand up and pace constantly in the middle of writing, often performing strange hand motions as I pretend to give a lecture in my mind. It really does help keep my thoughts clear and focused.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Diagraming unless
« on: October 06, 2008, 09:43:12 AM »
Does unless work the same way as except, without, and cannot? Are there any other words that serve the same function as unless (where you negate the sufficient)?

Thanks.

It's logically equivalent to "or."

I came back to my parents' place last night and forgot to pack ANY change of clothes. So I had to wear the shorts and tshirt that I wore last night, and the AC was pumped up as high as could be. The other people in the room must have thought that I was hopped up on meth with how much I was moving around and bouncing my leg trying to produce heat.

That, and a guy came up to our proctor before the test.

Guy: Hi, this is the only watch I have. It's analog, but it has a little digital timer in the middle. Is that okay?
Proctor: Um, yeah, that should be fine.

WUT.

And was one of the logic games answers that Lulu couldn't go sixth (assuming there are six).

I believe so. I remember that one being almost too easy.

For the second one (what weakened the authors conclusion) I said it was she wasn't representative of Chinese-American writings. I stayed away from the one about the book because the book was just as example of a larger point whereas I thought the point he was trying to make was that she had a literary lineage if you will. If she's not representative then she may not have that lineage. I'm probably wrong though.

I actually chose the opposite as you, though I did narrow it down to those two. To me, it seemed as if the book not being representative of her work undermines the author's claim that her writing as a whole has a base in the whatevertalk tradition. That book is the only example he gives of her writing, so if that's nothing like her other writing, then she probably isn't heavily influenced by the whatevertalk roots.

Thales, I also remember there being a lot of Ds and Es, so I think that's good. I was kind of suspicious that I had messed up.

In LG I found the answers followed a really odd trend. From being many As through Cs in the first half to being mainly Ds and Es for the second.

Actually, there were similarily odd trends all throughout the test... I didn't let it bother me during the test, but I'm hoping others have noticed this too.
^^ bumping this. Comments?

Gah, I distinctly remember my last two on the last game being AA, but I also seem to remember a DD in that game, as well.
