Anyone have any thoughts??  Anyone?  Anyone?

Thane, I would particularly like to hear what you might have to say.

Thanks in advance!   :)

why a is wrong??

Is this from passage on debate over environmental issues being less polarized & divisive more than a century ago than it is today?

If so, A is incorrect b/c modern environmentalists do not claim that protecting the environment is compatible with self-interest (their views are discussed in the last 2 paragraphs, neither of which mention "self-interest").

Law School Admissions / UG from continuing ed program of T1 school
« on: May 29, 2010, 11:22:08 AM »
Does having my undergrad degree from the continuing education program of a T1 school help, hurt or not matter in applying to its law school?  I graduated cum laude with a 3.7 GPA and would really like to attend my alma mater's law school.  I'm taking the June LSAT, but don't feel too confident about a high score.  :-[

Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Analog Watch?
« on: May 28, 2010, 03:47:27 AM »
Does anyone know of any good analog watches that will work for the LSAT?  I don't have a watch and would like to purchase one for the LSAT but obviously it has to conform to the standards that are allowable.  Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

As long as it is analog and does not have any extra digital features it is allowed.  You can get really cheap basic ones at Walmart or Target.

I can tell you which one NOT to buy (at least not over the internet).  I bought a Timex through Amazon that was recommended from an LSAT blog; it has a rotating bezel that can be set for whatever start/stop time that you wish.  Mine just arrived yesterday, and the bezel does not rotate!  >:(

So I guess I'll be heading out to Walmart or Target today.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Question about lsat training courses

Thank you for the clarification of "fake."  As far as the guarantee is concerned, I didn't really put too much faith in that claim.  The main reason I went with this TestMasters is that they offer an online course, and since I couldn't fit the "Live" courses offered in my area into my schedule right now I signed up with them.  I'm new to all this, and probably should have done some more research  :-\.  Anyhow, I've registered for the June exam I wanted to start studying immediately.  Taking the LSAT was kind of a last minute decision.  I'm a non-trad student and my personal deadline is to start law school by 2011, so I thought "it's now or never!"

The course does seem to be helping me with LR and LG, but then again, I don't have anything else to which I can compare it.  I scored a 153 on my first practice exam - far from the 170+ I would like, but I'm going to keep practicing and go for it.  I really would like to get into one of the top schools in the Boston area.  I have a GPA of 3.65, so I don't know if that is realistic or not.  Any thought??

« on: April 16, 2010, 10:08:11 AM » is the "fake" testmasters.  10 points or they let you sit in on the next course.  That's not much of a guarantee.  Find a place that will give you your money back.

I just started this course. :-[  By "fake" do you mean that it will be a complete waste of my time to go through the whole course?  At this point I can't get my money back!!
