Law School Applications / Re: MBA vs. JD
« on: January 05, 2005, 11:13:34 AM »
Since there is a limited window in which one can get a JD

Limited? How??

Other thoughts: As was said, anyone who can get nice score like 167 on the LSAT should be able to get a very nice score on the GMAT. Do not let your good GMAT score change your mind. Any bright person who is a good test taker should be able to do very well on the GMAT.

I agree with what was said about MBAs becoming less "special". I was surprised at how many idiots get MBAs every year based on my fellow classmates (I got a public school MBA a couple years ago). What someone wrote about them not being able to put together a sentence was all too accurate.

I was very shocked at how pathetic the undergrads were at my school when I went back for my MBA. I had to take a couple core business courses with them, they were horrible students. Backwards baseball caps, cell phones and stories about getting drunk and/or arrested is about all they had to offer. Pathetic. But many of you folks know that since you are in that cesspool right now.

Did I become a better student with my age (35 at the time)? Or did the quality of undergrads/MBA students go straight to hell? Probably more of the latter. In the end, I had to believe that too many people are going to college...it's the new high school.

This was one of the easiest questions on the entire test. The fact that some blittering morons still can't accept the fact that they got the question wrong boggles my mind. You god damn idiots, every thread about this question should be locked and those who start the thread should be banned from the board. I know plants smarter than you.

The god damn answer was "other uses". If you are too stupid to realize that then it may be time to consider another career. I hear janitors make good coin, look into it genius.

As long as we're going to start voting on the facts, I'll throw in mine. I'm with Praetor. I thought it was a pretty easy question. I needed every easy LR question so that I could miss lots of puzzle questions.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Stupid Question? Writing Sample
« on: December 13, 2004, 01:12:36 PM »

My approach to this was when I didn't remember how to make a letter in cursive, I just wrote it in print style and just added a little curve to the end.  It truely had to have looked like a second grader wrote the statement.

YES, same here. I remembered what a capital I looks like, but that is about it for capitals. The rest I faked. Why does m have three humps??? Stupid cursive!

stupider question:
i didn't write the statement in cursive...as i totally forgot how to do that (haven't done it since 3rd grade).
am in trouble?  i just wrote it in handwriting...

I don't know, but please let us know. It does say "do not print" on it...so I guess they could be sticklers if they wanted to be. Cursive is stupid.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Would 28 be a bit old to start law school?
« on: December 10, 2004, 02:28:00 PM »
I'll be starting at 37, not done until 41 or so. That gives me plenty of time to sue lots of people.

My biggest problem was that I have given up cursive as a writing style and I only print now, including my signature. But the test form forced me to write (not print) the little statement of purpose at the beginning of the test. That sucked! It took me forever to write the thing basically one character at a time while I tried to remember how to make the characters.

And even "slowed down" according to the OP may be faster than your average bear. That is the nature of mania, after all.

Yeah, but you can only use that mania for a couple weeks before you spiral out of control, then you break into a zoo after hours and assault a guard resulting in 2 years in the pen. At least that is what happens with my bipolar brother. That can have a negative impact on law school, I bet.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: DIOXIN- lets protest LSAC
« on: December 07, 2004, 04:48:26 PM »
I say, before LSAC even grades our tests, that we protest this question.  If we all send an email stating that we believed this to be a poor-quality question, they may specifically look at the distribution of answers and see the odd distribution of answer choices.  They might even agree and that will help us all out.

Sounds great...but I'll wait to see if I got it right first :)
