Choosing the Right Law School / Re: U Conn?
« on: May 06, 2006, 03:14:55 AM »
I would find UConn frustrating based only on it's remote location and party school menatlity.  A friend of mine had his car flipped over when the basketball team won whatever game it was a few years ago.  Another friend of mine was jumped by townies who he stabbed after they kicked in his face.  He was dubbed the "mirror lake stabber" and was kicked out of housing.  Crazy stuff!  But then again this was undergrad.

I miss CT.  I grew up in Mystic; now live in Colorado...

Go to business school.  I'm firmly of the opinion that if you aren't getting in anywhere decent for a reason.  I suppose the other option would be to reapply after the lowest lsat drops off the books.

I'm convinced you can't study enough for this exam.  I'd say study as much as you can handle.

The first prep book I read was Princeton Review.  I am still trying to recover from it.  What a hocus pocus load of crap.  They don't use real lsat questions in their prep book, so I doubt they'd use them for your diagnostic test.  If you do well on real lsats then you will do well on the real test.

Take a practice test then read both powerscore books before the class starts.  It is important to get everyting out of the class you can.  This will allow you to abosrb the higher level info without worring about the basic principles.

Good luck, Liz

I wonder how ya'll do on reading comprehension... I wrote the question.  Stated that in the first line, lol.  Thank you for all the feedback.  I find justify questions to be nasty so all help is appreciated.  Thanks again, Liz

Logical reasoning can be learned but only to a certain extent.  If you have trouble understanding any of it I doubt you will be able to handle the logical requirements of practicing law.  You may be the world's greatest mathematician, guitar player, social worker, brain surgeon, but from the sound of you post and the extreme defensive position you take to justify this weak position, you would not make a good lawyer.  Maybe its better you find out now then after 3 years and $100,000 in debt. 

Reguardless of my thoughts,
good luck, happy to have you in the curve.

On the idea of not studying a few days before the test, has anyone tried this in practice.  What were your results?

The P stands alone... L is already there.  I think you may be making an incorrect reversal of R on thrus ----> L on mon.

Hi all.  I'm new to this borad hoping to get some feedback on a question I wrote.  I am trying to understand justify the conclusion questions and in my quest I have decided to take on the persona of a lsac writer.  Please let me know what you think.

All people like bears.  Bears are cuddly and cute. 
If you don't like bears You are heartless.

The conclusion of the argument follows logically if
which one of the following is assumed?

A) People are heartless if they don't like bears.
B) If you like bears then you are a person.
C) Heartless people sometimes like things that
   are cuddly and cute.
D) No people are hearless.
E) If you are not a bear then you are not cuddly and cute.

Also, if you are so inclined please leave feedback on why or why not this is a valid question and why the answers you did not choose are incorrect.  I'm studing on my own so all feedback is greatly appreciated.

The answer (i think) is the 11th letter from the left
