Studying for the LSAT / Re: Games... ;)
« on: September 22, 2006, 07:08:12 AM »
I don't work out hypotheticals really, but I do use a pattern approach almost all the time on linear games. Especially on those where there are rules like "X goes either first or last". Sometimes I dont get much more than that, but just seeing the seperate lists, and working off of them for the local questions helps. I think you should do whatever works. I base my approach on the Powerscore methods, but I do my own thing that most people might find confusing. I usually miss 0 or 1 (if 1 usually a silly error)  so I would say it works for me.

I think if you can spare the 1.5-2mins...go for it. If it has improved your scores.

Studying for the LSAT / Orlando peeps holla!!!!!

I know the subject is lame, but you clicked on it didn't you?

I don't know about anyone else, the night of Sept 30th, it's time to relax (and by relax I mean drink). Most of the people I associate have no appreciation for this test, its importance, or hard study/work for that manner. I'm thinking it might be fun to unwind with those  who do. So, if you are an Orlando peep, holla back y 'all!

(Seriously, someone needs to remove the urban/ebonic vernacular chip from my brain. This won't happen again, I promise.)

This was absolutely what I was going to do. I guess I wasn't sure if that was appropriate, or if that could be seen as reaching.

For those out there who woudn't consider themselves "diverse" using a tradtional definition, are you going to write optional diversity essays? I'm under the impression that optional really means required if you want to be accepted. Now, I can write a diversity statement, but I am concerned that it might be interpretted as reaching or unwarranted. Thoughts?

I think the first idea is a good DS topic. I think you can leverage your experiences in a small town (that is the background that not all of use are going to have) and how that has affected your perspective. The 2nd topic could be a decent PS simply because there was an evnt in your life which made you chose a different course. For this to be effective, you would need to relate it to a more mature phase of your life, as HR suggested.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Prephrased LR answers

What gets me is when I prephrase an answer, and it isn't the list. This used to burn me a lot before I got better at prephrasing, but it still happens from time to time, especially on weaken questions.

ill read...PM me

I'll give it a look...PM it over...

« on: September 20, 2006, 10:48:04 AM » at least I wasn't the only one, so that is somewhat reassuring. I'm right there with jer...RC is totally all over the place. Oh well, test is a week away...I guess we are at the "do the best you can and let it go" phase.

send it along...
