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?
May seem like an obvious question, but is it easier to move in-house if one has work experience prior to working at a law firm? Can you go straight from law school? Someone I know was an intern for a pro sports team during college. He took a year off, went to law school, and starting working for the team as a lawyer after he passed the bar. He recently got a huge promotion, general counsel/VP, with zero firm experience. I plan on working for 2 years before I got to law school, then go back and maybe do a JD/MBA program. Will my chances of moving in-house be better with such experience? How does the move in-house usually happen? Strictly who you know? My ultimate goal: going in-house for a sports team or entertainment company. Perhaps working for a mid-size firm for a year or two just for the money and the expereience.
Superprep's explanation of the second game on the Feb 1999 LSAT doesn't make sense to me. Superprep says that if firs are not in the park, then Laurels and Oaks must be in the park. The condition is "if it is not the case that the park contains both laurels and oaks, then it contains firs and spruces." Wouldn't the contrapositive be if not spruces or firs then laurels or oaks?
I started studying for the June 2010 test two months ago. Got a 147 on my first ever attempt, no prep at all, didn't even know what kind of questions were being asked. I bought the Powerscore bibles and Superprep. I finished the Games bible a few weeks ago. I understand most games pretty well, but I seem to take too long figuring out the trick to each problem. Now, I'm using the tests in Superprep just to practice, no timing. I plan on doing the same once I get through the RC and LR bibles.
Is there any good way to develop speed? Should I use Superprep by picking apart each section of each test without worrying about timing? How else would I practice for games? I plan on buying as many PT's as possible and eventually timing myself.

Why do people get annoyed when questions are repeated? Not like this board is a hot spot and these questions are slowing things down. If you are annoyed, why take the time to respond with the perfunctory, "use search function" or "this question has been asked before." Just answer the question or ignore it.
