Studying for the LSAT / Re: 1996 preptest, S1, LG, #2 & #3
« on: December 09, 2009, 08:03:48 PM »
Post the PrepTest number, section number, question numbers, a short synopsis of what the problems involve, and what you don't understand about them.

Don't cut and paste the entire question.  The LSAC sends out their ninjas when this happens.

Got it! Thanks!

Preptest 20, October 96, Section 1 LG, #2 & #3.

#2: A worker inserts colored light bulbs into a billboard which has three light sockets (labeled 1, 2, 3). The worker has three green bulbs, three purple bulbs and three yellow bulbs. Selection of bulbs is as follows:

-when light 1 is purple, light 2 must be yellow
-whenever light 2 is green, light 1 must be green
-when light 3 is either purple or yellow, light 2 must be purple

My question is this: how would you create a diagram for this game?

#3: An attorney is scheduling interviews for a week (Mon-Sat). 2 full consecutive days are reserved for hostile witnesses. There are 6 non-hostile witnesses: QRUXYZ each of whom are interviewed exactly once either in the morning or evening with QR interviewed together. Following conditions:

- X must be interviewed Thurs. morning 
- Q must be interviewed some time before X  (I diagrammed this; Q< X)
- U must be interviewed before R  (I diagrammed this: U< R)
- Z must be interviewed after X and after Y   (I diagrammed this; X/Y < Z)

Same question: how would you create a diagram for this game?  I created a diagram similar to this:

Pm: _ _ _ _ _ _
Am:_ _ _ _ _ _
      M t w r f s

Is there a better way to diagram this game?

Thanks for the help and patience. Please let me know if I need to further summarize the game scenarios. I donít want to get this board into trouble. Thank you again.

Hi everyone :),

This is my first time posting a question regarding a preptest. I would like to know how to go about setting up the two games, but I'm not sure how much information from the preptest I should mention here. I read the two 'rules' posts about posting preptest information and I'm a bit confused about posting. I've seen other posters post preptest questions so haven't they violated the rules? I'm not attempting to get anyone into trouble-I promise. I just want to make sure I don't violate any rules.
 
If it is alright for me to post the two questions I'll do so after I've received the go ahead.

Thank you for reading this.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: anyone else ridiculously stressed out
« on: November 04, 2009, 09:34:41 PM »
That wasn't a terribel joke.  :)

I'm not stressed out about it (yet) but ask me again when January arrives ;). I am concerned about doing well though (as most students are).

Just keep in mind that you're not the only person experiencing those feelings. Also, study as much as you can. You'll eventually get to a point where you feel more comfortable with taking the test.

I came across this link the other night. Maybe it will be of some help (Scroll down to Earl Cat's message): http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,95809.0.html

Good luck.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: 3.71/171 chances to break t-14?
« on: November 02, 2009, 06:16:51 PM »
Hi,

The message I'm about to post probably won't mean anything, but I thought I would share something with you.

Although T14s do accept applicants with exceptionally high GPAs and LSAT scores, they do make exceptions (although your acceptance into one of those schools would hardly count as an 'exception' due to your high GPA and LSAT score). For example, an old roommate of mine had a 3.7 GPA with no Honor's classes, no AP classes, etc. just basic, intro classes. She scored a 153 on her LSAT and was accepted into Cornell. The point of my message is that even though the most prestigous schools (T20) place a great emphasis on high numbers, they do accept those who fall below the usual high numbers (hence, below the bottom 25th percentile which these schools do not report).

In my opinion, you have an excellent chance of being admitted into one of those T14 schools. Just make sure that your PS, resume and letters of rec. are top notch and you should have as good a chance as most others of being accepted.

Good luck.  :)

It's not even worth 50 cents.

Lol, well that said it all.

I recommend the Power Score Bibles.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: How many preptests should I take/study?
« on: October 29, 2009, 11:44:37 AM »
It's rather hard to give you a definitive answer re: number of preptests to take. I've heard/read high scorers taking as few as 5, and as many as 50. Myself, I took probably 25, and I scored a 173.

Ultimately, it's the quality of prep that will matter for your improvement.

Hi, may I ask you a question? What would you recommend I do in order to attempt receiving a score similar to your's? I'm aiming for a score between a 165-170 with an emphasis on a 170+. I've been studying the PowerScore LG and LR books since January. I don't want to say that I'm 'mastering' the material, but I've been doing quite well on everything so far. I started timing myself about four months ago and averaged 9:15 on the games. I haven't accurately timed myself on the LR section. I know I need to drastically improve (timing wise) on that section but I'm not overly worried about it yet because I'm going to finish reviewing the LR book next week then commence the timed tests in November. Any recommendations?

Thank you.
