Transferring / Transferring to Michigan
« on: June 24, 2009, 12:56:35 PM »
I have no delusions of grandeur.  I have mediocre grades at a 40ish ranked school (3.0 First semester, 3.25 second semester).  My mom has cancer and I want to transfer home to Michigan but don't want to step down to wayne, msu, detroit, etc. I have some pretty solid intangibles. I was able to get a federal judge to hire me this summer and have written a few opinions that have been issued (writing sample?).  I can even get a letter of rec from the judge too.  Should I apply to Michigan as a transfer, or is pointless considering my grades?

I remember having #'s 21 and 23 blank, and having answered 22 and it being A, B, or C so i accordingly guessed D on 21 and 23 hoping to get at least one of them b/c i had no other D's or E's in that section...

Studying for the LSAT / Re: NO WAY these are right....

Well for those of you that said that 25 and 26 were indeed B and A, you are all wrong.  TM corrected the answer key, TCR's are acutally A, B.....

In my mind, these two LR questions have to be wrong in the answer key that im using....what do you guys think???

#1
It is more desirable to have some form of socialized medicine than a system of medical care relying on the private sector.  Socialized medicine is more broadly accessible than is a private sector system.  In addition, since countries with socialized medicine have a lower infant moratlity rate than do countries with a system relying entirely on the private sector, socialized medicine seems to be technologically superior.

which one of the following best indicates a flaw in the argument about the technological superiority of socialized medicine?

A.  The lower infant mortality rate might be due to the systems's allowing greater access to medical care.
B.  There is no necessary connection between the economic system of socialism and technological achievement.

cde are horrible...

I chose A, TCR was B, but there doesnt HAVE to be a necessary connection between socialism (broad, we were talking about socialized medicine) and technology, am i way off??


B looks good to me.  I think you are overly interpretting Socalism to think of Karl Marx or Mao Zedong or something.  Socialism is shorthand for socialized medicine, not some nightmare Cold War scenario.  Also, re-read the first sentence of the stimulus.  It talks about "systems".  There is a system of medical care that relies on the "private sector".  What "system" would socialized medicine fall into?  I'd say socialism is it! 

Well, not to be a jerk, but i was right, the TM answer key is wrong....Someone sent me the kaplan explanation and TCR is in fact A, because choice b talks about economic system of socialism and the stimulus is talking about socialized medicine

#2  It is proposed to introduce mosquitos into the wild with genetic alterations that destroy their disease carrying capacity.  In this way the dangerous wild population could eventually be replaced by a harmless one without leaving room for another disease-transmitting strain to flourish.  One candidate gene would interfere with the mosquitos' finding mates; another would cause the destrustion of a disease parasite before the stage at which it could be transmitted; another would disable the mechanism of the mosquito's own resistance to disease, so that it would die before transmitting the diesase.

which one of the following identifies a discrepancy in the proposal above?

A.  It is presupposed that all three genes would prove equally easy to isolate and insert into the cells of mosquitos.
B.  Two of the proposed ways of destroying disease carrying capacity in the wild mosquito population would jeopardize the goal of the proposal.

CDE are jokes again



TCR is A, I chose B....Isnt A completely irrelevant?

Since these 2 were consecutive, im thinking that they were supposed to be listed "A, B" in the answer key but were incorrectly reversed into "B, A"...but then again, i could be wrong on all counts.....

Studying for the LSAT / Need some advice/input about courses.....
« on: July 05, 2007, 02:33:27 PM »
I was a self studier, using LGB, LRB, superprep and PT's and scored a 160.  Will taking powerscore or testmasters help me improve? I know its different for everyone, but just in general, do people still raise their scores if they are already familiar with the lsat?
