Studying for the LSAT / Finally!
« on: February 23, 2006, 10:17:45 AM »
I figured out the trip generation for a new site and did the AutoCAD drawings too. Just thought I'd share that bit of information. Of course there will be quite a few people reading this in anticipation. Ok then, so you're looking for a number, so here you go....
              1600 vph (peak hour estimate).

 Have a great day y'all!     ;D  ;D   :D

I had one where the LSAT book was really thick (like a phone book) because each page had one huge bubble on it that you had to fill in completely-plus the letters on the page (A B C....) were really tiny.  The proctor told us that we had to fill the bubble in perfectly.

This was hilarious. Try to lay off the 'shrooms, you may sleep better.  ;D

Iacta alae est
We'll see the outcome of this fiasco in a few weeks days. 'Til then, smooches for everyone. It's Valentine's Day.  :-*

Studying for the LSAT / Other factors beside LSAT & GPA

I read on another board about race and participating in certain events can influence your application chances. I really didn't think much of it.Does anyone think I should have stressed that I am a minority, grew up in a third world country (hey, walking barefooted for half your life isn't that bad), participated in the war in Afghanistan and associated with various charitable organizations (favorite was working with a Literacy Council). I thought that these kind of things were common!   ;D

When the clock strikes midnight, those who have not cancelled can all join me in saying...
 "Iacta alae est"

They just probably won't get into Harvard.

I love the word probable and it's cousin probability.  ::)

   The fact that LSAT allows a method of selection from the pool of law school applicants is undisputed. What it measures (future success, level of intelligence etc) can be argued. The LSAT is here to stay, perhaps modified as time goes by, but it will still be here, including it's associated imperfections. A personal analysis will determine where each person's strengths and weaknesses. While some will be able to improve their scores to an acceptable level, others may have to mitigate low LSAT numbers by focusing on other areas.
   By one method or another, a fixed number will be decided as to admissions to top tier schools. If you don't get into Harvard, that doesn't mean you're dumber than someone else who did, nor does it doom you to be less successful. Even if you spent (##) months and did get a 180, that doesn't mean you'll be successful in law. Know who you are and stop limiting the definition of your potential with numbers.

My only real claim is that NOT EVERYONE (the equivalent of "some are not" in LSATspeak) has the potential to get a 170. ~onefirststreet

Putting the cart before the horse. Funny isn't it, how this same ideology can lead to channeling more resources into some schools with children that "has the potential" at the detriment of others.
  Anyway, my point was people should be careful not the classify the word "intelligence" as a single entity. The series of rhetorical questions are quite inefficient in expressing your thoughts but quite effective in showing your arrogance. Quit taking things personal and look at the big picture.

I think the matter should not be examined in extreme ends of the spectrum, i.e "everyone", "all", "nobody", but should be looked at as a probability. If the LSAT is learnable, then to what level? I cannot argue for or against this point until the data and other factors have been examined. Individual examples cannot be used to assess the entire scope.
     I thought I read a post that associated evolution and smartness (or some misconception). I recommend you reading The Mismeasure of Man by Stephen Jay Gould in an attempt to cull this putrid way of reasoning. I only hope that people who think in such fashion will not gain positions of authority nor infect the populace with their ideologies.

I think that people who scored higher in the real test than in the practice may have been on an upward trend. If your practice scores have plateaued then the probability is the real score will be in the range of the practice scores.
