Studying for the LSAT / HDL/ LD Cholesterol
« on: June 15, 2006, 08:04:13 AM »
14. HDL/LD Cholesterol
Answer: HDLS not leaving the blood as easily

Hey all,

I know this was probably an easy one with no trickiness to it, but I just can't remember what I put for this one.  Does anyone remember the other choices, things that DID strengthen the argument about one being better for you than others? 

I think I put TCR, but I'm drawing a total blank.

So please stop asking about it in the threads.      :)

If you don't believe me, please check out the many threads already available which address the issue.  And if you still don't believe me, I suppose you can chat about it here, if you'd like. 

Studying for the LSAT / June '05 scale?
« on: June 08, 2006, 04:43:18 PM »
Hi all,

Could any of you sweethearts please email me the June 2005 conversion scale  (  Or maybe message me what the raw scores were for 165+?  I'd really appreciate it.  Thanks!

This question really threw me off.  It talks about how the goal of medicine seems to be extend life indefinitely; it then gets into organ transplants, and how the brain can't be transplanted.

I'm sure I'm missing something obvious, but for whatever reason I couldn't wrap my brain around this one.  Can anyone explain why people with degenerative brains disorders will make up an ever-increasing proportion of the population?  (the conclusion of the argument).  And can anyone explain why the correct answer is C?

If anyone can help, thanks!

Studying for the LSAT / October 2003 Scale?
« on: May 25, 2006, 05:01:15 PM »
Hi all -

Could someone with the scale for the October 2003 test please tell me what the cutoff raw score is for 170?  Thanks!

Here's my situation - I graduated from UG five years ago, and have been working pretty much since.  I managed to pay off my student loans, and have been pretty conscientious about saving.  So now I have a good amount in the bank, and I'm afraid it will hurt my chances at financial aid next year if I have to declare it.  So I'd like to do something about it before I get into the application cycle next year. 

Barring buying a house/condo (which is something I've considered), what do people suggest I do?  I just don't want to hurt my chances at grants, and essentially be punished for not blowing more of my money these past few years!

Studying for the LSAT / Most Challenging Games?
« on: May 08, 2006, 04:38:32 AM »
I'm curious to hear which games people are finding most challenging (or vicious, or brutal, or fun, depending on your perspective...) on the practice tests.  It might give those who are studying us some good suggestions on which games to focus on.

I'll start it off with one that gave me fits this weekend - Dec 2001, #36: the third game, with the six people sitting on the bus.  The rules just didn't click with me. 

Somebody last week mentioned the male and female snakes and iguanas game as another tough one.  Any others?


Studying for the LSAT / October 2005 scale
« on: May 05, 2006, 05:24:50 PM »
Would somebody who has the Oct 05 scale handy please be so kind as to tell me what an 87 translates to?  Thanks! 

Any help with this would be much appreciated.  Here's my situation:  out of school for 5 years, applying in the fall.  I'll have a couple good recs from work, I'm pretty sure, but my advisor suggests that at least one academic rec would be nice.  As an undergrad, I never thought I'd be applying to ls, so I never lined up any recs back in the day.

There is one professor in particular I really enjoyed; I was in her junior tutorial, and she advised me on my senior thesis until I decided to drop it (personal reasons, not academic).  But it was a pretty big school, and she has since moved on to Washington & Lee - nowhere near where I live.  I feel awkward emailing her after this long to ask for a rec.  I did well in her class, but the truth is she probably doesn't remember me. 

Following a lot of previous good advice read here, I'm ready to send to her copies of any and all of the work I did for her, including my junior paper (I even still have her comments on it).  I'm also prepared to explain to her what I'm doing now, and why I want to go to law school.  In other words, I know more or less what I have to do.  I just am having trouble getting started!  What's the appropriate way to start my email to her?  "Hi!  Remember me?"?  "You may not remember me, but I got an A in your tutorial a few years back..."?  "Hey, what's up?"? 

I know this is a lame thing to ask in a post, but I'd love to hear any suggestions for how to open up a request email like this.  I've never been good at asking favors of people. 



Studying for the LSAT / If, But Only If (LG question)
« on: March 30, 2006, 10:52:52 AM »
Quick question - I was just doing a practice game from a recent LSAT, and one of the conditions for a grouping game was "X does such and such if, but only if, Y does also."  (Wording changed slightly to avoid the copyright violation wrath of the mods.)   

My question is: Is X the sufficient condition and Y the necessary condition?  Or is this a case where it works both ways, as in: If X, Y; If Y, X.

I hope that makes some kind of sense.  Thanks!
