Law School Admissions / Avg. Increase of Multiple LSATs
« on: July 16, 2005, 05:28:01 PM »
I once saw a statistic that showed that avg. increase per original score.  Does anyone know where I can find it?

I'm taking tomorrow's Sabbath-obsever test and LSAC seems to be down, and I can't print my ticket.  Any emergency ideas???

Studying for the LSAT / LR - October 2000

A pretty average test overall.  One question, that while I got it right, I had difficulty choosing... Try it out.

Detective: B/c the embezzler must have had specialized knowledge and access to internal financial records, we can presume that the embezzler worked for XYZ Corp. as either an accountant or an actuary.  But an accountant wouldn;t have made the mistakes in the ledger entries that led to the discovery of the the embezzlment.  Thus it is likely that the embezzler is one of the actuaries.

Each of the following weakens the argument EXCEPT:

A. The actuaries' activities while working for XYZ were more closely watched than were the activities of the accountants.

B.  There is evidence that the embezzlement could have come from outside XYZ Corp.

C.  XYZ employs 8 accountants, whereas it has only 2 actuaries.

D.  An independent report released before the crime took place concluded that XYZ was vulnerable to embezzlement.

E.  Certain security measures made it more difficult for actuaries to have internal financial records than accountants.

While the answer is obvious, it seems that one of the other choices doesn't weaken it so well....

Studying for the LSAT / LR - Dec. 97

The widespread staff reductions in a certain region's economy are said to be causing people who still have their jobs to cut back on new purchases as though they, too, had become economically distressed.  Clearly, however, actual spending by such people is undiminished, bc there has been no unusual increase in the amount of money held by those people in savings accounts.

#18. Which one of the following is an assumption on which the argument relies?

A. If people in the region who continue to be employed have debts, they are not now paying them off at an accelerated rate.

B.  People in the region who continue to be employed and who have relatives who have lost their jobs commonly assist those relative financially.

C.  If people i nthe region who have lost jobs get new jobs, the new jobs generally pay less well than the ones they lost.

D. People in the region who continue to be employed are pessimistic about their prospects for increasing incomes.

E.  There exist not statistics about sales of goods in the region as a whole.

As I was typing this I see the answer.  The anwer is the third letter in the word "read."

Canadian Law Students / Important if you plan on studying in the States
« on: August 12, 2004, 01:10:32 PM »
So it seems there are a few Canadians and I have a pretty important question for you guys, I think.  I'm an American at U of T.  My GPA is decent when compared to American law students (3.5).  But for U of T, I think that definitely towards the higher end of the spectrum.  Do American adcomms know that Canadian schools are impossible?  Or will they frown upon my not-super-high GPA?  Will they give our Canadian degrees some sort of special treatment bc the average GPA at most of the schools here is a 2.00 or something like that?

Law School Admissions / Saturday Sabbath Observant Test
« on: August 08, 2004, 02:42:45 PM »
Does anyone know anything about this test.  I am taking it on a Monday.  It's different than the test everybody else will take on Saturday, which makes sense.  But is it based on the same grading curve?  I have heard that it is a harder test for some reason?  Does anyone know anything about these tests?

Thanks in advanced,

Studying for the LSAT / June 2003 test (40)
« on: June 10, 2004, 02:27:06 PM »
Just wondering what you guys thought of this one.  On the whole test there were maybe two questions that stumped me.  The games were decent, as long as you didn't take too much time worrying about the stupid airplane routes and just played each question as they came, and the RC was -- dare I say -- entertaining.  Did others feel this way?

I got a 174, which is up there with my highest, but I also tried something that I swore I never would: Ritalin.  Oh man... is it a miracle drug or was this test just genuinely easy?  I was so alert, I almost found myself smiling during the test.

Another games question.  This one is game 1, section 2, December 2002.  Can someone look at what question #3 is? 

Does yours read:
"If each of the three red files is immediately followed by a green file, which of the following must be a red file?
a) 1st
b) 2nd
c) 3rd
d) 4th
e) 5th"

My book says the answer is "a" but that directly goes against one of the rules which says "the first file cannot be a red file."  So I'm assuming somehting is wrong, but what is it.

Thanks in advance for any help.
