Personal Statement / Good Writers Wanted. Whose good at transitions
« on: January 07, 2006, 11:54:52 PM »
I am almost done with my cultural diversity and overcome essay, but I am having trouble with a transition between 2 abstract subjects.  If your brain can draw connections between odd things could I use it to help me. Just need 1-2 good sentences
won't take long.   Thanks so much.  ANybody?

Basically, this kid is too smart to be a lawyer. Push her toward the sciences, she will be better off.


Something we have not yet discussed....
First of all this is amazing not because of the logical underpinning of the test but in the subject matter is what I find either amazing or unbelievbable.  I mean think about the topics...Privitization, ivory trade, sciences, govt policies, random literary authors and movements from ages ago, economics, business and the list goes on.  To be able to answer the question you have to have at least a general understanding of these topics which almost no 10 year old does.  If it is true, then WOW, but don't push her towards anything.  She could be invent the cure to cancer, be a CEO, Economist, writer, doctor, lawyer, go to Juliart, or prove that life exists on other planets, who killed Kennedy.  The world is her oyster.
Parents that push their kids make them burt out and unhappy, just be proud of her and love her nomatter if she gets a 140 now or in ten years.

Denials / Re: Write your own rejection

Dear Applicant,

While reviewing your application you mentioned a history of being abused as a child.  Obviously this abuse has not taught you anything because you are still a jackass trying to apply to our law school with that pathetic attempt of an LSAT.  I would enjoy nothing more than beating you myself.  In addition, we have researched and been informed that you have been accepted into Yale in order to study Economics, and been given some nice job offers.  We have taken the liberty to contact these institutions on your behalf and let them know what a moron you are.  After all how business savvy or economical is wasting $700 dollars on applications. We hope that you die a slow miserable death for insulting our university’s time, and prestige.  Feel free to apply again next cycle, we could use the money to train real students

Where should I go next fall? / Re: A few last ditch apps?
« on: January 06, 2006, 04:05:39 AM »
I also am in that situation.  Luckily I have a good job offer, and Yale Econ to fall back on.

What do you think the Lowest non URM LSAT for these schools are willing to take.  Assuming everything else is spactacular which to get into Yale I am guessing it is, plus essays are very very good.
Berkeley
Vandy
Cornell
Washington (st. Louis)

What the hell was reggie doing with that lateral.  This must be one of the stupidest things I have ever seen in all of sports.  If he was anybody else he would have been benched for that.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Forget the scale on practice tests
« on: January 06, 2006, 12:23:44 AM »
This is why myself included, there are so many people who do 10 points or so worse than on PT.  It is not hard to do at all.  Practice old tests getting 85 Q right=170, then have a slightly bad day due to nerves or just an off performance on real test get 80 right, so you are not going to score too much worse than anticipated right...Wrong.  80= 161 or something and you only missed like 1 more per section.  Imagine if you miss 2 more per section
