General Off-Topic Board / Re: The Truth about the Pay Gap
« on: April 30, 2007, 01:48:21 PM »
On its face, the evidence in the AAUW study looks damning. "One year out of college," it says, "women working full-time earn only 80 percent as much as their male colleagues earn. Ten years after graduation, women fall farther behind, earning only 69 percent as much as men earn."

But read more, and you learn things that don't get much notice on Equal Pay Day. As the report acknowledges, women with college degrees tend to go into fields like education, psychology and the humanities, which typically pay less than the sectors preferred by men, such as engineering, math and business. They are also more likely than men to work for nonprofit groups and local governments, which do not offer salaries that Alex Rodriguez would envy.

I've never read the actual studies, but I always assumed that when they said "colleagues" they were referring to people who worked in the same field and did the same kind of work. Of COURSE women who go into education are going to make less than men who go into investment banking.

The issue is -- do women bankers make the same as men bankers if they're doing the same job and working similar hours? Or does a glass ceiling really exist?

This report seems to have muddled the issue.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Scantron Directly or Test Booklet

I hate scantron and don't like looking away from the test booklet that often.

I circle the answer in my test booklet and transcribe one page at a time (for LR) and one section at a time (for LG and reading comp).

Now that you have more time ...

Work on understanding and accuracy first. Give yourself all the time you need to completely understand each type of question. Once they make sense, start cutting back on the time you allow yourself. I did quarters at a time at first (in other words, one game at a time, allowing 8 mins and 45 seconds, or one reading comp passage at a time), then moved to doing whole sections. I took whole tests one the weekends so I wouln't loose a feeling for what the real test actually felt like.

Think of it as a marathon. You will get better a little at a time, but you've gotta keep training the whole time!

Maybe you haven't hit on the stuff in class yet that you are having the most trouble with.

If you had asked earlier, I would have told you not to take the Kaplan class. A month really isn't that long yet - so keep practicing! And if you're not ready by test time, by all means WAIT till October!!

Will you always be working such long days?
