Current Law Students / Re: UCC or Restatement for this scenario?

Because it is a non-movable good (i.e. it is fixed into the ground, a stationary structure) would it then not be part of the UCC?

Current Law Students / UCC or Restatement for this scenario?
« on: May 06, 2012, 10:30:53 AM »
Would you apply the UCC or the Restatement to the following scenario:

"Blaine, the owner of a tract of vacant land in a newly designated attraction site, contracted with Danaya, a reputable contractor, to design and build a triple-decker Mardi Gras float that would serve as a year-round tourist attraction...[cost to design and build $2 M ]....Because of the design of the float and the creative fixtures increasing its weight load, the plans called for the foundation's base to be about 20 feet deep. Halfway through the excavation, she realized that an underground water flow went through the soil at one corner....."

Would I apply the UCC or the Restatement to this and why?

Thanks in advance!!!

Law School Admissions / Filling in Application

Two questions:

1) Should I use all caps when filling in the law school applications online to make it uniform and easier for admission staff to read, or just normal?

2) What do you put in places like high school major, gpa and stuff. Does that matter?

Julie, I  didn't mean that the LSAT literally changes its grading scale based on the amount of students. Other factors including, the increased numbers of people taking test, during a recession more professionals going back to school that may do better on the LSAT, etc etc...

I bet you if you were to juxtapose two graphs, one representing attendance and another representing score scale, there would be some interesting extrapolations to make. I hypothesize that you would see the scoring scale easier during non recession years or years when attendance is at normal levels. Those extrapolations would not offer insight as to the reason why by any means.   

Does anybody know if there is a correlation between a tougher LSAT scoring scale and dates with larger relative amounts of test takers?

I see that June 2002 had a tougher score scale compared to June 1997. I assume there was a higher attendance in 2002 due to the tech bubble bursting and the economic slowdown.

Any thoughts?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: experimental

The Experimental was definitely in my first and it was definitely an RC. I thought the graded one (second one) was much easier. The fractal problem was a piece of cake in my book. The first RC, on the other hand, was seriously thick. I didn't finish 5 of the problems on that one. Good thing the second one was graded!

P.S. I think the experimental section in general is a bunch of crap. 

Studying for the LSAT / Re: So, how does everyone think they did?
« on: June 08, 2009, 09:21:58 PM »
I thought I did pretty well. The only section that I didn't finish was RC. I definitely had an RC experimental as my 3rd section. It was ridiculously thick in my opinion, much harder than any practice RC I did. Then when I saw the next one, it was much easier.

The Games are my best section but I literally finished them within 5 seconds of the end, thankfully! I think I may have gotten 2 wrong. Hoping for 165 +, we will see !
