Hmm... well if I remember correctly. Junior's Miami Hurricanes played some team this year.  Junior made a vicious hit on someone's knees, injuring that player, and I think getting a flag.  So after the game, reporters ask if Junior feels remorse for taking that guy out like that.  Junior responded in the following fashion
" @#!* no I ain't sorry.  This is f-ing war.  WAR.  Kill or be killed.  I did to them what they would have done to me.  @#!* them.  I don't give a @#!* about their U.  It's all about this U.  I am a f-ing soldier man.  A f-ing soldier.  This is a f-ing war.  @#!*."

Kellen later did apologize.

His Dad was reasonably classy. Too bad he didn't pass that along to his son.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: What was your initial score on LSAT?

I was great at reading comprehension and decent at games and reasoning when I went in. You are a bit better than I was at games. If you are missing that few in reasoning then I don't see why you would need any class. I was missing about 7 per section on reasoning, and I did feel I got value from learning the approaches. Because I had been studying a while on my own I didn't adopt everything from the class, but it did make sense and I picked up some stuff *I* thought was valuable.

Atticus missed the point that regardless of whether her complaint was legit, she handled herself quite poorly.

Yeah, there was more to the class than I expected so I was happy I sat in.

Word of advice: I felt that having prepped on my own made a difference as I had a bit of an understanding of what was troubling me. The class really focused on games and reasoning, so I would say that anyone considering taking a class should know what their areas of need are.

Were you anywhere in particular on the site? Or just generally surfing?

If you really want to improve on LR, someone adviced me to read Introduction to Logic by Copi. 

I read parts of this book. It did help somewhat, but you have to wade through a lot of extraneous crap. It made me think that philosophy majors must have a big advantage on the test.

155. Studied on my own and moved up to a 163. Took a Powerscore weekender, then studied more, and ended at 171.

You must take many, many tests!

There would be two benefits to knowing:

1. If you knew for sure during the test, you could relax for 30 minutes.

2. If you blow a section early on, you may find out later it is the experimental section. If you didn't know the experimental, you might cancel needlessly.

There's probably more benefits, but I can't think of them at the moment.

Some people have suggested that the LSAT should add a listening section to the test.. ;D That's just proves my point... that some people totally miss the point why the LSAt was created in the first place. It was not to measure your abilities as a lawyer, you are not one yet!

I disagree. Law school is there to make you a lawyer. The LSAT is to see if you can be good in law school. Even if you separate the ability to do well in law school from the ability to be a good lawyer, a Listening section would not be inappropriate because your ability to listen to lectures in law school is a big part of the experience.

I wish I had time to debate this more forcefully, but alas, work calls.

longhaul, were you having problems with a particular section, or were you just needing to improve overall?

i'm thinking about a powerscore being offered in may.

Thanks for any advice!

Thanks for asking. My main area of need was logical reasoning, and I needed some improvement on games as well. I was quite good at reading comp, and fortunately the class did not spend a lot of time on that.
