Studying for the LSAT / Re: RC Changes?

Source = who he got it from

I can post whatever I want on this site or wikipedia and say it came from LSAC staff.  Hell, that happens here every day!  Plus, it was written with the body of the post, as if a quote, not a source.

Stop being so damn skeptical. He's telling the truth and this is word for word what my pre law advisors email said:

Hello all,

Here is an important announcement from LSAC concerning changes
to the format of the LSAT, beginning June 2007.

Paul Crowe

--------------------------------------
Beginning with the June 2007 administration, LSAC will
introduce a variant of reading comprehension, called
comparative reading, as one of the four sets in the LSAT
reading comprehension section. In general, comparative reading
questions are similar to traditional reading comprehension
questions. However, there is one significant difference:
instead of being based on one passage, comparative reading
questions are based on two short passages. The two passages
together are of roughly the same length as one reading
comprehension passage has been, so the total amount of reading
in the reading comprehension section will remain essentially
the same. A few of the questions that follow a comparative
reading passage pair might concern only one of the two
passages, but most questions will be about both passages and
how they relate to each other. More information, including
test preparation material for comparative reading, will be
available on the LSAC website (www.LSAC.org) in mid-February
2007. This information will also appear in the printed LSAT &
LSDAS Information Book, to be distributed in February 2007.

Also beginning with the June 2007 LSAT, test takers will no
longer randomly be assigned one of two different kinds of
writing promptódecision or argumentófor the writing sample.
All test takers will be assigned a decision prompt. The
writing sample will continue to be unscored.

These two changes are a result of extensive research by LSAC
staff and consultations with the LSAC Test Development and
Research Committee.

Boss you're going to feel stupid in the near future for trying to second guess everyone. Don't mix this OP or this message up with some of those prank september scores released threads.

I'm not sure I understand it though. Reading comp usually consists of 4 passages. So does this mean they will have 8 short passages but shorter. Id actually prefer this. Seems like some smaller passages would be easier reading. Maybe LSAC did this in addition to the RC they served to everyone who took the September LSAT. Looks like LSAT is going to be more focused on reading comp and arguments and shying away from games.

Actually yea the source the OP listed at the bottom is exactly what my pre law advisor sent me. So it's definitely true.

No that is true. As strange as it sounds I just got the same passage emailed to me by my pre law advisor.

Studying for the LSAT / Should I take the February or June 2007 LSAT???
« on: October 17, 2006, 08:38:22 AM »
Since I know I'm definitely not applying to schools until next Fall I was planning on taking the February LSAT, but I've heard mixed comments/opinons about the different LSATS and that the February may be unique compared to the rest. Should I just use the extra few months to keep studying or depending on my practice test scores relative to my goal decide when to take it? Does anyone know how the February LSAT usually is compared to the June??? Thanks!

« on: October 17, 2006, 05:59:34 AM »
No it's not possible. It's theoretically possible that all accepted applicants could choose to go there. But in some strange case like that the school would be forced to defer a lot of admissions and even go back and reject some of these people. There's no possible way a school usually taking in 300 or so ppl a year could handle a 1000 students in one year. Their facilities wouldn't handle it and I'm sure it would bring down there statstics/rankings some how.

But as Law Is 4 Me is right in that every law school just like every undergrad accepts way more students than it can handle. They have a pretty accurate estimate as to how many will roughly accept. Keep in mind that a lot of these students are getting accepted to higher level schools and will plan to attend those. In additon some students choose to go to lower level schools because they are offered more money by them. Depends on a lot of factors but your idea of 1000 ppl planning to attend would never happen.

I dont think it's on LSAC's website but I'm thinking of taking June 2007 rather than February exam since either way I'll be applying next Fall. I'm just trying to figure out how much solid free time I'll have from graduation in May until what date its offered in June. Just trying to find out if it's early mid or late June???

Usually W's won't matter much because they are hard to quanitify, and law schools are big number whores.


well if you have a 2.8 GPA and 12 Ws on your transcript I think even T4 schools have to worry about admiting you, but I agree law schools = number whores
well one W shouldnt be too bad. I wasn't talking about extremes here.

I was just being sarcastic, its one of my numerous charms  :o

Doesn't seem like your very good at being sarcastic and getting your point across at the same time. Maybe you should micromanage better  :P
