Studying for the LSAT / Re: Question about LSAT Logic
« on: November 03, 2006, 07:20:37 AM »


Is it just me, or is February 10th accelerating toward us?  Look out!   :D


yes it's accelerating at mach 4. june 07 is starting to look good to me. ack.

ah, starting in june, you are in it for the long haul like me (took tm last spring and considering a retake). thank god i'm not the only one. i try to preach patience but i get shouted down.

Just saw the part about patience...perhaps I should read more carefully and then I would miss a few less questions!  :)  Yes, I am an early bird.  I have about 2 more years before I can get out of the Air Force, and I want to have the LSAT completely out of the way ASAP so I can devote the remaining time to all the rest of the application fodder.  That, and because my GPA is low!  So I sort of really need the LSAT!   :P 

I've decided to enter standardized test hell, I think, because I'm also going to have to take the GMAT, because I want to do the dual JD/MBA thing. 

UGH!!!

Good luck, Liz!

40 preptests? holy moly. you taking a course too or doing it in your own? you sound like you have a solid grip on formal logic for this early in the game. thats a good sign.

Thank you, but I can't really say I'm *that* early in the game.  I started a self-study program in June.  I took the PowerScore full-length course from August - September.  And now I'm taking every preptest on the market, while re-doing the Bibles.

yay chris, i got it right!  wooo hooo!

Well, with 7100+ posts, I'm sure it's not the first time! 

 ;D

PS:  Hope I didn't come off the wrong way!


unfortunately, there is no correlation between lsat wisdom and post count. if there were i'd be rockin' a 180.

and no, you came across perfectly. i genuinely wasn't sure and didn't want to hand out bad advice to the unwary.


Well that's good to know!!!  Or I'd be rockin' a 120!   :o 

I'm up to my elbows in LSAT prep for the February test.  I kind of feel fortunate that I have no formal logic training to "unlearn" when it comes to the LSAT. 

Eight preptests down; only ~40 or so to go!

Yes, Liz, you're absolutely correct!  :)  The LSAT interprets ALL to include MOST (in the direction of the ALL) and SOME (reversible). 

A --> B
A MOST B   (one way from A to B)
A SOME B   (same as B SOME A)

I'm applying to Law School for Fall 2007; I'm 27/28.  I'm debating whether to apply to PT or FT program:  I don't know if I want to be in a room full of 22 year olds.  I'd appreciate everyone's insight on pros and cons of PT or FT.  Thanks!

Completely useless economics masters degree.

I'll be 26 when I start law school, and I completely understand the "not wanting to be in a room full of 22 year olds". actually, the average age of entering law students has increased steadily over the last few years as law schools are favoring students with more life/work experience. look for schools that have a larger population of non traditional students in their full time programs; they will generally provide distributions of age ranges. i actually asked the admissions depts everywhere I applied.

can u post em?  :)

Ditto...I'd like to see them too!  :)

Hey, Eagle--where are you taking PowerScore?  I'm in the Raleigh class.

To me being a lawyer has its advantages - money and freedom, and being a air force officer has its advantages - interesting and satisfying work.  Becoming a JAG officer seems to lack any of the advantages. 
From my understanding the only way the AF will pay for law school is through a program where current AF officers are selected.  You have to have already been an officer for 2 years.  This might be something I'd be interested in, but if I get selected and join, I wouldn't be thinking about law school for at least some time.
I think the only way I'd go is if I got an intel position and even then I'd have to see how I fel about withdrawing from Northwestern. 
Could some of you intel people tell me what job prospects are like after the AF?

Well, best of luck!  I'm not sure I understand the distinction you're making between the two, but that's OK because obviously these decisions are very personal ones.  Best wishes,

~Chris
