Studying for the LSAT / Sequencing Logic Games w/ Conditional Rules
« on: November 26, 2007, 08:01:25 PM »
Has anyone noticed how relatively often this type of game is being tested in recent tests? This has represented a significant hurdle for me, because I'm very slow at working through this game type. The real issue is simply the conditional rules in a sequential format. I dominate normal linear sequencing games (they're commonly thought to be the easiest type) and conditional rules within other types of games, but I'm so slow with the conditional rules in the sequence format.

I've been trying to come up with a solid system for attacking this type, but it's been difficult. One thing I've found somewhat helpful has been taking the contrapositive of the conditional rules. I almost always do this with other games, but I routinely skipped it with this type of game (not sure why).

Are there any other tips from my LSAT colleagues?

Also, is there a webpage where the games are broken up by PT into specific game categories? I really need to find more sequencing games with conditional rules!

Law School Applications / Diversity Statements: Physical Handicaps
« on: September 24, 2007, 09:37:15 AM »
Are diversity statements traditionally limited to ethnicity, or is it acceptable to write a diversity statement based on a significant handicap? I contemplated including it in my personal statement, but I ultimately decided against doing so because I didn't want to convolute the theme.

Would it be inappropriate to include a DS with such a topic?

Do you really think you're an LSAT master? I'm sorry, my dear, but you don't hold a candle to me.

Believe me, hun, i'd run circles around a circular logic game with you...  i'd be done before you finished drawing your spokes.

Wow, that gets me hot just thinking about you mastering the possibilities of a game.

Battle of the LSAT Sages.

Law School Applications / Resume Rough Draft
« on: September 21, 2007, 07:36:27 PM »
Would anyone be so kind as to give my resume a look-over and comment on its deficiencies and strengths? I feel my resume is a weak area of my application, and I would really appreciate feedback.

Thanks, Para.

Is it normal for the applicant to send in the LORs himself? I thought that the recommenders were supposed to send the recommendations directly to LSAC. Am I mistaken?

Michael:

What is your view of the CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) program? Do law schools tend to dismiss it or is it viewed as being an enriching, substantive EC?
