Studying for the LSAT / Re: Lawyers and honesty

It's not that lawyers aren't honest. It's just that most lawyers use the law to their advantage by making extremely complicated agreements and "legally" conning people into agreements and holding them to it. This is where lawyers get there "liars" stigma. It's true that lawyers get into this cunning deception but liars really isnt the right word since it's legal. Anyways I love it and can't wait to be a cunning fox in the world of law.

Man, I'm not bringing each option down a level to accomodate you by putting 190 on top. Good job, though. That's none wrong and a fake 10, right?

...or a scored writing sample :)

is there still talk of LSAC doing that?

no, but apparently they're adding a different reading comp paragraph.

Yea, and I still don't  understand the whole concept of this reading comp change. I'm not sure if there are going to be more passages but they are shorter or what. Anyone have a clue?

The answer to your first question #11 lies within the last statement, "This is significant ebcause..." It shows that caffeine is equal to or the greatest psychoaddictive substance. Thus, as answer E shows : if alcohol is a P.A.P.S there are no more people who consume it than consume caffeine. Theoretically this could also mean that there are as many people who consume alchohol as caffeine but once again not greater than the number of people who consume caffeine.

Hope that helps....just got back from class..too tired to answer further questions..might later tonight if I have a chance. Cya

I just logged on to LSAC and they have a bulletin about MAC users not being able to access online services.. hope that doesn't last to long for those of you who have Macs.

I hope it lasts forever, and all  you Mac users can go down in flames. Muhahahahahaha Muahhahahah   :P

Well if it's not true this definitely could be a massive prank that reached his email, my pre law advisors email, and now my email. It's spreading and taking no names.

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 ( 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.
