Studying for the LSAT / "Type Five" Parallel Reasoning Questions
« on: November 26, 2005, 04:56:07 AM »
I seem to miss a high proportion of these compared to others. It's apparently my LR kryptonite. Are they just more difficult in general or is there a good strategy to learn to handle them besides diagramming? I'm a very intuitive kind of guy, so I don't know...

Go ahead and guess mine, and I'll give my predictions, based entirely on how I do compared to the medians, assuming I improve my LSAT to say, 172, and have a 3.7 GPA.

Law School Applications / Re: "Awesome/Great" LORs and PS

I think mine is pretty good, enough to grab attention I hope-talk 4 small(15-30) people classes with prof. Has a PhD, JD, etc etc, worked for LA city attorney and retired and then became a professor. He and I are good friends on first-name basis, and he wrote my recommendation to become an RA.
My other ones are from a professor I knew in a small seminar and an English prof who I took a few small classes with and offered to write me one if I ever wanted one and thinks that I am challenging and engaged.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Summer Before Law School
« on: November 26, 2005, 04:36:53 AM »
i don't have any expert knowledge, but your summer before law school is the last time you'll be able to have a good time free of "the law." I don't think it'll make much of a difference and the times this topic has come up in the past people have simply advised everyone to do whatever they wanted to do before they died, like travel, write a novel, hang out with friends, etc.

Congrats everybody!   ;D :D :) :D ;D :D :)

I'm only a teensy bit jealous.  (I'll only get really jealous when people start getting into the schools I applied to ) ;)

You got into Harvard! Who cares about the rest? Yale, maybe...

I'm visiting the graves of step-family, which unfortunately doesn't entitle me to URM status. Oh well.

At Rustler's Rooste, everyone was celebrating ASU's victory over Arizona. :(

I'm a little intoxicated right now, hanging out in the lounge of the Wild Horse Pass Sheraton. Stupid ASU. I was totally rooting for you guys too.
