Studying for the LSAT / Re: somebody go bug lsac
« on: June 29, 2006, 01:22:01 PM »
i don't really understand why they're so secretive about it.  seriously, why can't they just come out and say "we're emailing the scores on this day, between these hours"?  i'm sure they know when they're going to do it like weeks in advance.

It makes a lot of sense for them to do it this way, actually; if they were really specific about when they'd come out, and something got screwed up, people would be REALLY pissed off.  By saying the date is July 3, they look like heroes for getting the scores out "early."

Mine is working fine as well. Although about a month ago I've started to get large amounts of spam. Back in March or so, I never use to get spam. Now all of a sudden my spam folder is about 200+ every day. Whats the deal?

My guess is that you either forwarded the wrong email, or signed up for the wrong porn site.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Here are the scales for the last 6 LSATs

Interesting - there's more variance than I would have expected.  Thanks for putting this together.  Here's hoping this upcoming scale is a lot more 'D04' than 'D05.'

Yes, many people naturally gifted in this narrow range of intelligence will probably do well with little or no study. But you can't infer the reverse, that those who don't do well with little or no study are by definition not intelligent. There are too many variables not factored into that argument and it  draws a conclusion from incomplete evidence (Where have I heard that before, hmm?)--we don't know the relative intelligence of low scorers .

As I mentioned in the Mensa thread in the LSAT Horrors child board, I test quite highly on intelligence tests, but my initial TM diagnostic was dismal, my butt was constantly kicked throughout the course, Games still kicks my ass, and I still have a lot of work left before I'm in the score range I want to be looking at.


I'm the opposite of you, haha. Not that I'm a total idiot (or maybe I am, I've never taken an IQ test that I remember), but I am not always the sharpest knife in the drawer. I sympathized with Jessica Simpson's "Chicken of the Sea" debacle, because I do things like that constantly. Then, I took the free real LSAT they offer online and scored a 174 somehow without ever even reading about any of the sections. For some reason, my odd combination of skills (good at remembering unimportant and useless details, excellent at cutting through BS/reading between the lines) were perfect for this test. Which is good because I'm a classic splitter (3.57/175ish). I hardly improved with much practice and scored in a pretty narrow range, despite lots of targeted study, so I just feel lucky and confused as to how I'm good at this. All I know is that it's NOT an IQ test. :)

A 3.57/175 in no way qualifies as "a classic splitter." It comes across as rather obnoxious to say so, even if you'd prefer to have a GPA that's a couple tenths of a point higher.

The stimulus said specifically that the centaur represents both man and horse.

I don't think it did.  Do you have the wording?

Oh-oh, someone just broke his word not to get sucked in again.

I know it.   :-[  

I think it was the defiantly confident contradiction which did me in.   ;)

I pulled out all the stops in working my charm on the person I talked to at LSAC, and after an hour or so of sweet-talking and gentle prodding, I was able to convince her to tell me my score early, over the phone.  But that might not work for everybody. 

Flame?

Nah, I'm just playing.  Didn't expect anyone to actually believe it.  It'd be nice though, wouldn't it?

Questions I'm pretty sure I got wrong: prestige (forgot answer), horse, tools, praiseworthy (forgot answer),  new age philosopher (probably wrong), intelligence (forgot answer).  Ugh, that's 5-6 that I surely missed.  On RC: why atmospheric gasses, append the passage, probably the main point of computerized trial, and maybe another on the women's.  So i'm starting with a base of about 8-10 wrong.   :-\

Out of curiosity, what did you put for the horse one?  I think I picked an answer that hasn't even been mentioned, something about horses being mean in real life?  Lol, I feel like it was something to that effect.

that's the one I picked, I think it said that the people that created the myths had to be afraid of the horses in real life.

"presupposes, without providing evidence, that humans have no real reason for fearing horses"

Is that what you're talking about?

Maybe, I don't even remember what type of question it was, I just remember the horses and fear :) This is awful. I'm psyching myself out about answers I don't even remember putting down.

I'm with you.  I think the right answer was the one about real reason for fearing horses. 


Yeah, but who's to say that the half-man-half-horse mythological creature even represents real horses in the first place?  That, IMHO, is the flaw that makes the argument fall apart.


Aaaaaargh, I promised myself I would stop obsessing over the test!!  Ok, this is the last time I'll let myself get sucked back in.
