for whatever reason, LG bible didn't help me too much.  I could follow their methods of diagramming and everything...i just couldn't draw that key inference that would the game so much easier, no matter how much i practiced.  like i said, it was like my brain just wasnt wired the right way for LG's. 

you just described me perfectly.  I have read and worked through that book 3 FULL times, and yet with daily practice I am still only scoring around 50% on timed games.......I am using the old prep tests( 10 more and Next 10) as studying material and those games are killers.   Math has always been my worst subject and I am really struggling here with 7 weeks to go.    I am dedicating one more week to games solely and then refocusing on LR.    I am taking another timed prep test this saturday and will see if my intense studying has helped.

You can't not classify an entire population of lawyers as not "intelligence-based," and classify doctors as intelligence-based, it just doesn't make sense. That's a logical fallacy.

This is definitely (and to most obviously) correct.

I'm pretty sure surgeons are not the smartest doctors though; they are not the equivalent of appellate lawyers.   


My father who went through Cancer care and Chemo treatment at the VA before he died would always use the same joke:
What do you call the guy that finished last in med school?  Doctor.
Same joke applies to every profession.

This post is intended as a repository for one-liners.

Q: What is your idea of the worst PS title?



Dear Adcomm,

I gained an immense appreciation for law while in prison and ever since I was released...

Take a bunch of post it notes and write something on each one like this:  I have studied, I know the material, I am prepared, I cannot fail.  Post these on the bathroom mirror, car dash, desk at work, fridge.....  It will serve as a constant reminder that you are going to do fine.  Besides, you have already taken the LSAT once, so you already know exactly what you are in for.

well, I'm all for being sarcastic to those who offend me AND ask stupid questions. 

But now I must know...does the simple act of asking stupid questions offend you? 


As I thought I had explained adequately, earlier, it wasn't the questions, it was the attempt at answering the O.P. in such a pathetic, ill-informed, and ultimately harmful manner that offends.


Are you worried that those dullards might be intimidated from further such harmful posts?

I'd call that a good thing.
>>>>>I'm sorry, I didn't realize that I had been reading TheosIamgodofallthatistheLSAT LSD.com website.  How dare such mere mortals offer or ask for advice and try to "actually learn" from their mistakes. Or have I been mistaken that this website was set up for everyone and not just those that score over 170?

It must be very lonely being you. He who lashes out at those of a perceived lesser standing is himself no taller, or wiser.
 
BTW Theo, thanks for all the great advice you have been posting on this board.  I have been gettin' my learnin' on by readin' your posts and such.

You continue to prove my point and I thank you for your continued support Theo.

but i still *heart* theo. i also *heart* pig. i'm a little confused.

I wasn't criticizing the substance.  Just its delivery.


I agree.  Theo, I know you know this LSAT, and good for you!  It was just the fact that you kept critiquing posters with "you're wrong" before you finally stepped in an gave some helpful advice.  I, too, hate seeing wrong information given, so sure step in and stop the misinformation.  I'm just asking that you it somewhat nicer, especially when these posters haven't done anything to offend you.  Not like the other posts where people immediately jump all down someone's throat for offering realistic advice.

I once heard: if you have the time to criticize then you have the time to help.

No joke.  I heard it's taking so long because they're one of the "top law schools" that's been stalking posters on LSD and Myspace after the whole facebook "ghetto fab" party!  That's what the hold up is. 

And that's why I'm not applying until after I get my glamour shots uploaded to my myspace page.

So since I go to UT and the UT people can see my facebook page, would it be a good idea to take down the pictures of myself playing beer pong and wearing a "Columbia" shirt? 

"Columbia" the school or the coke capital?

The school, although if you are confused, maybe the adcoms will be too...

No; I am sure that they know that the two are spelled differently.

don't ruin if for those that can't spelle

This is completely, abjectly WRONG.

It's like watching a hideous, lethal highway wreck.

Ok Theo, lots of people chimed in with the wrong answers, but you can stop being a total pr ick any time now. Wasn't it you that got shut down when you told mick foley he wasnt qualified to diagram statements?

http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,70878.0.html


Ok, so I was wrong.  Once.

I was hasty, and I apologized.  So sue me.

Now, it offends your Catholic-school-girlish sense of propriety that I rag on a couple of dullards who answer a post with criminally incompetent answers?

At only about 10% worthwhile posts, this is still the best site for LSAT prep info in a discussion format, and I don't like it when some moron leaves a baby ruth floating in the LSAT-advice punchbowl.

When you've posted a tiny fraction of the excellent LSAT advice I have, I promise to respect your opinion in these matters.

You may have LSAT wit Theo, but it doesn't take away from your horrible demeanor and candor that I have witnessed on this board numerous times.  I may be a "newbie" here, but I can spot a small man from a mile away.  
My advice given to the OP helped me, it wasn't gospel and I did not present it as such.
