Studying for the LSAT / are pattern games important?
« on: October 16, 2007, 08:19:43 AM »
i'm still doing old practice tests (pre-1998) but have come across a few "pattern" games - are they worth the time to perfect my skills for them, or are they rare enough today that i don't have to be 100% efficient/familiar with them?

Studying for the LSAT / circular reasoning
« on: October 11, 2007, 09:56:45 AM »
according to TM, an example of circular reasoning as a flawed method of reasoning is when "the argument presupposes what it sets out to conclude."  According to an LSAT instructor I just met yesterday, however, this statement does not express the same thing as circular reasoning.  Can someone please clarify who is right and what the difference (if there is one) is?

this is my main LR weakness, please help!!  I'm good at identifying what the method of reasoning in the stimulus is, and i write it down as a reference point, but once i start to look at the answer choices i get so thrown off by the change in subject matter, information overload or jumbled order of premises/conclusion. any advice for how to keep a straight head in doing these?

also, are the structures/# components of the premises and/or conclusion always parallel?  for instance if you have (A or B --> C) as a premise in the original stimulus, is it wrong to automatically eliminate an answer choice with a premise (A or B or C --> D) or am i supposed to give it a chance in terms of seeing whether the logic of it actually works in a similar way?

Studying for the LSAT / Oct 2003 (Preptest #9) LR Questions
« on: October 06, 2007, 07:21:33 PM »
Section 2 (LR), #4: can someone please explain why Answer B is TCR?  And why E is not?

Section 2, #22:  someone please explain D over E (my answer) ?

Section 4, #15: Chose C, don't know why D is better...

Section 4, #20:  Why C over A?

Any or all would be great if anyone could help out. Thanks!!

Studying for the LSAT / finished all TM materials... any suggestions?
« on: October 06, 2007, 11:59:05 AM »
I've finally finished all the practice tests/diagnostics/homework/supplementary/etc. material that Testmasters gave me, which (assuming they aren't duping me) means I've done every LSAT question available to date with the exception of the last two administered LSATs.  where do i go from here?  i know i have time to do all the formal preptests before December, but i've basically literally seen and done all the questions, whether in test format or not...  anyone recommend how i should set up the order in which i go about taking (or i guess sort of re-taking) these tests? any help would be much appreciated.

Law School Admissions / LORs/Any forms sent automatically by LSDAS?
« on: October 02, 2007, 04:03:24 PM »
I'm not sure yet if I want to apply this cycle or next cycle (I'm taking LSATs in December), but am definitely asking my profs for recommendations so I have it either way.  I'm unclear on two things:  in case I decide to postpone a cycle, will LSDAS keep these files on hold?   and secondly, LSDAS doesn't send the recommendations uploaded in my file automatically until I pay for each law report right?  or is it automatic... please let me know if you have a clue, thanks!

Studying for the LSAT / List Ethnicity in LSAT Registration?
« on: October 01, 2007, 09:46:40 AM »
I just wanted to make sure that the conventional thing is to indeed, select what your ethnicity is regardless of whether you're URM or not when you register for the LSAT and are filling out the applications.  I wasn't sure because i keep coming across the option of NOT including my ethnicity, but i don't know if that's looked at weirdly if i were to choose not to do it?  i'm asian, so i really don't care whether they know or not, but i don't know if it's something that's pretty much expected like checking off the waiver agreement on your recommendations.
