Studying for the LSAT / Re: Logic Reasoning Bible Question
« on: March 11, 2007, 08:44:06 PM »
I'm also currently working my way through the Logical Reasoning Bible and so far have found it fairly helpful. I feel like the example problems they give at the end of the chapters are easier questions then most so I'm not exactly sure what to think of it as a whole but thus far the book is very straightforward and clear and at times may be overly in depth if their is such a thing but I'm glad this book is as comprehensive as it is.

I think the conditional reasoning section is very important for the sake of being able to understand complex arguments and simplifying them into abbreviated form for organization. I see the chapter as an organization tool to help you pack a lot of wordy material into a few diagrams to refer to when checking  your answers. Some questions are more difficult then others so drawing them out might not be needed on some but to keep your ideas clear and indirect inferences such as contrapositives and such the diagramming is helpful but not necessary. Basically do what you feel would benefit your score the most.

How was the games bible? I bought the logic games bible but haven't gone through it yet but also wondering about getting the logic games ultimate setup guide as well and not sure how they differ or which I should go through first? How was your experience with the logic games bible and how has your score improved?

Choosing the Right Law School / Cornell vs Fordham placement
« on: February 26, 2007, 06:39:40 PM »
Does anyone have a good grasp on how well Cornell places? I mean being Ivy I'm sure it has a pretty decent national rep but as far as placement in BIGLAW in NYC I hear so much about Fordham but not much about Cornell. Any takers?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: To all June LSAT takers

During the week it really depends on how much schoolwork I have going on. I'm having a difficult time deciding if I should be putting more emphasis on my LSAT studying or school studying. On one hand I think another dean's list semester will look good on my transcript and boost my GPA but the LSAT comes second to none in importance of admissions so...usually I've been studying about 2 hours every Mon Wed Fri. I'm working through the powerscore logic reasoning bible first then moving on to games bible and finally working on practice tests.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Drexel
« on: October 23, 2006, 06:49:36 PM »
Yea they just opened a law school this year. Drexel's a pretty well rounded school and with their solid med program it seems fitting they opened a law school. This is the law school's first year however I am pretty sure they arent accredited yet although I know they are trying to get accredited for the first graduates. It's sort of a risk going there. Nobody really knows the quality it's going to provide or when/if it will be accredited. However this might be a bonus for incoming students. I hear they give out a lot of money to entice students into coming. I can only assume those with good numbers can probably rack in a lot of money from the school. So maybe it's enough of a benefit to take a risk and be one of the first graduates.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Grades....

I'm in a similar situation except no community college.

Freshman year came in as a bio major and not really knowing what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. Anyways freshman GPA was a 2.5. Since then I've pretty much gotten all A's and climbed back up to a 3.6. I'm wondering if I should include some sort of explanation in an addendum or is this pretty much self explanatory to the admissions officers? I'm wondering if they actually look at transcripts or if they just check GPA given by LSDAS? I guess an addendum would pretty much force them to take a closer look, if at all, at my transcript. Any opinons on what I should do?
I always feel like including an addendum explaining yourself either comes off as some sort of excuse or it's only restating the obvious to adcomms who can already see my progress. Any thoughts?
