I once heard a law professor say that lawyers usually have friends who are lawyers because lawyers think differently than nonlawyers in that they analyze something from every possible angle.  They also conversate differently than nonlawyers in that they're very precise with the words that they use in conversation.  Ever since preparing for the LSAT, I find myself starting to think and conversate like a pre-law student in everyday situations.  In conversations, I'll split-hairs on topics and dissect people's word usage (Bill Clinton's "well that depends on what your definition of the word is is").  I make less and less assumptions that would be an acceptable assumption to a normal person.  For example, instead of telling my roommate to go wash the dishes, I tell him to go wash the dishes, glasses, and forks.  I mean, I know damn well he wouldn't wash just the dishes and leave the dirty forks and glasses in the sink if I told him to just wash the dishes, but I just like to be precise.  Do I need a shrink?   ;D   

LoL this is another example of why you shouldn't skim through the answer choices.  I should know better by now.  My reasoning still stands, but B is the correct answer choice.   

Yes, answer A is correct.  Since "some" really means 1 or more, we could take a look at the extreme and pretend some days really mean only 1 day.  I will substitue the word "some" with "one." 

"On one hot day the smog in Hillview reaches unsafe levels" - Let's say this is Monday
"On one hot day the wind blows into Hillview from the east"  - This could be Tuesday. 

The conclusion of the argument says, "Therefore, on one day or more when the wind blows into Hillview from the east, the smog in Hillview reaches unsafe levels.  From what we see above, we can see that is not necessarily true.  Therefore, A is correct.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Testing Site conditions

can't you switch testing sites?  or is it too late? 

I'm planning on taking a couple of non-degree grad school courses, and one of the reasons why I'm doing it is to get LORs from professors.  Does it matter if I get a LOR from a professor teaching at a reputable grad school versus a less known grad school?  If so how much does it matter? 

Incoming 1Ls / Transferring To T1 After First Year From....

Aside from a student's 1st year GPA, how much weight does a law school place on a transfer applicant's previous school's tier/rank?  For example how likely is it for a T30 to admit a transfer applicant from a T4 with outstanding 1st year grades?

I agree with Patrick's post.  I wasn't specific enough in my post.

could be true = true 1% (to be more precise any value more than 0%) of the time or more 
not necessarily true = true 99% (to be more precise any positive value less than 100%)of the time or less
