Studying for the LSAT / Re: Are more recent LSAT preptests "better"?
« on: June 01, 2004, 11:46:54 AM »
I hear everyone say that the games are easier from earlier versions, but I have recently taken the June 2003 and October 2003 tests and found the games section to very easy.  I missed 3 and 1.  And my mistakes were a matter of not fully reading the questions.  I actually had almost 5-10 minutes to spare at the end of the sections.  Did anyone else find these tests to have easy games sections?  Or am is this just a fluke?  I don't want to be over confident and then be stifled during the actual exam.

I ordered them on Monday and received them yesterday.  So I think ordering them from LSAC shouldn't be a problem.

LSAC and LSDAS / Re: Coverting your GPA
« on: May 28, 2004, 01:54:22 PM »
Yes, but in my school I actually receive a 4.0 as a grade.  And if my A+ isn't quite good enough, I would receive a 3.9.  So I would receive GPAs for all of my classes.  For example, I would receive a 3.6 in Econ, 3.4 in Poli Sci, etc.  Therefore, my A in Econ would only be counted as a 3.6, instead of a 4.0.  It just really isn't a fair system.  I received many A's and A-'s which did not count for as much as others at different schools towards there GPA's.  I think that it will convert without any change, but I just think it is unfair.  Oh well, what can I do?

LSAC and LSDAS / Coverting your GPA
« on: April 29, 2004, 04:08:01 PM »
I went to a university which gave out grade points as grades.  So when I received an A+, I received a correlating 4.0.  So when I received A's they fell somewhere in between 3.5-4.0.  But the LSAC scale seems to put me at a disadvantage because other's A+'s would be a 4.3.  Does anyone know if they account for this?  If they do, I would actually improve my stats.

I agree with your suggestion to skip questions in the easier games.  I have been doing this and generally finishing with 5-7min left.  Then I can go do the clean up work on the ones that stumped me.  Generally, if I identify a question as one which will take a lot of leg work, I skip it.  You can usually tell within seconds if its hard or not.  This tactic has eliminated almost all of the time pressure issues I felt when I tried to struggle through the difficult questions.

Studying for the LSAT / Identifying the Trap Questions
« on: April 28, 2004, 01:37:19 PM »
I have been practicing on the LR sections and have found myself narrowing the selections to 2, but then choosing the choice intended to be second best.  Can someone help me identify these types of answers?  Are there any easy indicators?  I believe if I can master this, my score will be substantially improved.  These types generally cost me 7-10 questions.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Confusing questions from prep. LSAT
« on: April 23, 2004, 06:13:05 PM »
Here is how I see it.  The conditions of the experiment are a healthy dog who doesn't suffer for the sake of an exploratory experiment.

In A,C, and D the animal either suffers or is already unhealthy.

E the sole intention has to be to cause harm which is not true.

So B, is true because its states the only justifiable reason is if it saves lives, which in this experiment it doesn't. So this is the principle used.

This is how I broke it down, if anyone sees it differently let me know.

Studying for the LSAT / What does it take to get into Law School?
« on: April 22, 2004, 06:57:46 PM »
I have a 3.2 UG GPA and am set to take the LSAT's in June.  My practice tests have been steadily improving and I think a 160+ is a possibilty.  With these stats, what should my expectations?  I am hoping for top 25-100.  Am I setting myself up for a letdown?

Studying for the LSAT / Logical Reasoning
« on: April 20, 2004, 05:28:38 PM »
I am hitting a road block on the LR sections.  I typically will answer the first 17-18 correct or with 1 or 2 errors, and then just bomb the last 7-8 questions.  I could be missing 1 or 2 in the section, but instead miss 6-8.  Because this is half the test I would substantially improve my score from the low 160's to the low 170's.  I think it is a time issue, but does anyone have any suggestions on erradicating this constant occurrence.
