Law School Applications / Re: Tillman

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.  @#!*."

Yea...
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?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Logical Reasoning

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.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Weekend Test Prep Course Worth Anything?
« on: April 22, 2004, 04:13:38 PM »
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.
