Incoming 1Ls / Re: 1L Advice

If you are absolutely, positively sure you want to be a lawyer and you really want to go to Univ of Maryland, then go ahead and go to school. If one or both of those statements aren't true, then take the job and reasess in a year.


I cosign this one too. But it doesn't make sense to go through the whole process unless you really want to be a lawyer anyway IMO, although i'd venture to say that most people go to law school because they don't know what else to do. The best advice I ever got about law school was my senior year in HLS grad (who never practiced law a day in his life, I don't even think he took the bar) told me that unless you're absolutely, positively, 110% sure you want to be an attorney, don't go to law school. It took me 10 years and 2 careers to figure out that I want to be an attorney.

Not trying to hihack the thread.

 you'd probably be better off going to school and upping your earning potential post-law school. Just a thought from my perspective.


Studying for the LSAT / Anyone ever tried this for LR?
« on: May 22, 2006, 03:27:28 PM »
someone kind of alluded to this, i'm going to try it tomorrow to see how it goes...

1)really focusing on the first 18 questions, sans long PR
2)doing the last 2-4 questions, which are typically easier
3)focusing on the last 6, still saving PR for last

theoretically, this should give you a decent shot of getting at least 22 right on LR.

any thoughts?

All the answers seem pretty weak to me, but that's why you have to choose the "best" answer I guess.

There is no best answer. There are four absolutely, 100% incorrect answers, and 1 absolutely, 100% correct answer. :)

Thank you O Wise god of the LSAT

Yeah, that's happened to me sometimes. Usually I narrow it down to two choices then pick the wrong one. When I go ver the test, the answer always jumps out at me. You jut have to maintain focus on those suckers. I make most of my mistakes b/w 18-24. Those are the hardest ones on the section. Also, I think one LR is harder than the other typically.

Section 1, #21

Why is the answer E?

I'm curious, did you choose B?
Yep, I sure did.

That's what I picked the first time, then when I went over the questions, I couldn't understand why I chose that answer. But I took that test 2 months ago. Here's the breakdown:

The discrepancy in the argument is that despite the fact that lack of sleep was determined to be the reason for a person's fatigue, that person was not recommended to obtain additional sleep. So the question is asking for a reason that would explain why a person was not advised to sleep more to obtain sufficient sleep which theoretically should lead to decrease in fatigue.

a) doesn't contribute anything to resolving the discrepancy. The question does not address fatigue or obtaining adequate amount of sleep
b) If the first two hours of sleep do the most to alleviate fatigue then the person's fatigue wouldn't be attributed to lack of sleep
c) it doesn't matter that some people require less sleep. the question is about this specific person
d) if nightmares did contribute to fatigues the amount of sleep wouldn't matter because a person would experience them whether they received 4 or 8 hours of sleep per night
e) this is the correct answer because if the person is already not getting enough sleep, worrying about getting sleep would reduce the number of hours sleeping even more and that would make his/her fatigue even worse.

Ok I see it. All the answers seem pretty weak to me, but that's why you have to choose the "best" answer I guess. Thanks, and thanks for yesterday's explanation too.
