Studying for the LSAT / LR Question - PT 33, Dec 2000, Sec 3, # 8
« on: November 08, 2009, 08:48:41 PM »
I got this one right by choosing A since it seemed like it could not possibly be wrong, but I'm not exactly sure why C and D are incorrect.  Any ideas?

Studying for the LSAT / LR Questions - PT 32, Sec 1, #'s 16 &17

For 16, I put D but the answer is A; the last part of A is deceiving to says that, "being above average in both speed and endurance is not necessary," but I found that to be too strong of a statement.  It might not be necessary to win long-distance races, but the way the answer is worded makes it sound like it is not necessary at all.

For 17, I put C but the answer is somehow D.  How does the fact that the company employs 8 accountants vs 2 actuaries weaken that argument?

Studying for the LSAT / Taking study breaks
« on: October 01, 2009, 05:10:23 AM »
With classes in full swing, I have a lot less time to study for the LSAT now than I did during the summer.  However, I notice that I seem to be improving much faster now with more time off between study sessions; everything just makes more sense.  Does anyone else notice they do better when they take a break from studying? Is less really more?

Law School Admissions / Work experience?
« on: September 17, 2009, 09:08:10 PM »
Is there any particular work experience that would help me get into a top 10 school?  I currently work in the finance department of a marquee NFL team (two years out of school).  Many higher ups in pro sports have a JD.  I've been thinking for years about getting a JD, maybe an MBA too.  Now I have another motive.  I figure given the fact schools like to recruit a well-rounded class from a diverse background, and since pro sports is a really popular/unique industry that lots of people want to work in, it might make my application more attractive.

Law School Admissions / JD/MBA
« on: June 01, 2009, 03:18:14 PM »
Good idea?  Anyone done it?  What kind of opportunities are availble to a JD/MBA grad that aren't available to a grad with just one of the degrees? Note: I want to work in corporate law and ideally go in-house and become a general counsel.  Would the MBA help with that?

Which is harder to get into: law school or b-school? Which test is harder: GMAT or LSAT?

Studying for the LSAT / Has the LSAT gotten easier?

Is it true that the LSAT has gotten easier since the year 2000?  Seems like the 1990's LSAT asked much tougher questions.

Studying for the LSAT / Which section to study first?

Are games the best of the three sections to study first?  (provided you are equally weak on all three sctions)

Job Search / Defining biglaw and a day in the life
« on: May 22, 2009, 04:36:23 PM »
How big does a firm have to be in order to be considered biglaw?  If a firm has only one office, <= 200 lawyers (Carter Ledyard & Milburn, PBWT), what kind of firm is it?  What kind of shift do laywers in NYC work?  8-8? 8-10?
