A recommender writing a general letter only needs to mail in one copy, right? And then LSAC takes care of giving the Universities that you apply to copies?

Studying for the LSAT / Ipods on day of test?
« on: December 02, 2008, 04:40:32 PM »
Hi everyone... so I've seen some things in testing tips mentioning that some people like to listen to certain songs before going to take their test or what not. However, as far as I'm aware, an ipod/mp3 player isn't among the approved items for taking into the test... so how could you even have it with you in the test center? Am I missing something here??

Studying for the LSAT / PT 42, LG 3, Q's 14/18

Can somebody do this game and explain the answers to 14 / 18 to me? It's from December '03 and involved cookies and the days of the week. As tasty as it is, I can't understand how the answers for 14/18 are what they are.

Anna Ivey's book on the law school app process has a great chapter on recommendations with a section geared toward the letter writer...

Studying for the LSAT / Re: I think my brain is going to explode

Until now I hadn't done any skipping around in games before... I was always under the impression that the questions can build on eachother, and if I skipped say, question #3 because it was lengthy, I might miss information crucial to question #5... If that's not the case, then maybe I should try skipping longer questions? Are we talking local or global questions here?

So I've done a few more games sections and found that I tend to either hit around 9min or 12min, with the occasional one taking up to 14. I once did a game with some benches around a park perimiter in 4min 40sec (can I please have four of those games???) but that's abnormal. So now I'm wondering, at what point do you abandon a game and move on? 9min? 10? 12? Also, at what point within a game is a question taking too much time?

Okay here goes... I think this all hinges on the word "ought" in B. Based on your summary, the flaw has nothing to do with what ought to be but rather that the jury reached a different conclusion... So, if the witnesses testimony failed to implicate the defendant, the jury could have reached the opposite conclusion as the witness, or required other evidence to do so...

Studying for the LSAT / I think my brain is going to explode
« on: November 28, 2008, 09:47:07 PM » t-minus 7 days until the LSAT and my head is about to explode. My problem is that I can't seem to get my games time down to the 8 minutes per game that I'd like. Give me 14 minutes and I'll answer all the questions fine, but 8 minutes seems almost impossible at this point... I'm working through the LG bible at the moment, since my other course prep didn't seem to offer enough for me... what's the best way to get my time down on these things quickly?

I had never heard of this book... but a quick borders search shows she's the dean of the law school at my undergrad university, so she must know something! :)
