Studying for the LSAT / Re: Real, actual score release information
« on: October 19, 2006, 05:28:24 PM »
But - but - my coworkers are going out for margaritas at 5pm after the office closes. But what if I don't get my score by then? I'm going to be chained to my desk staring at the computer until I get my score, I'm afraid.

Agh! Me too. My work email is on file with LSAC...and I do not dare change my email settings on my LSAC account on the day before they're supposed to send the email. Great. Now not only am I going to be a nervous wreck waiting for a stupid "New mail has arrived" pop-up, but I'll be waiting in my office on a Friday evening. Baaah!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: How bad does my UG hurt?

Didn't even realize I could access the transcipt analysis online until you mentioned it but after looking at it, I miss my blissful ignorance...

My UG LSAT mean is 164, with 41% (wtf??!) scoring with a raw score of 95 and up; 57% with 90 and above. Unlikely I'll be included in that, however. Boooo :(

no i think thats percentile... theres no way....

Oh jeebus, you're right - definitely percentiles and not raw scores. Wheeew! I feel slightly better...

Studying for the LSAT / Re: POSSIBLE LR #50????
« on: October 11, 2006, 02:32:42 PM »
Hmm...I had LR experimental but anyone with RC/LG experimental remember a question about re-planting trees and some nonsense about their roots?

95
Anyone else care to shed some light on this?? Please?

I realize that I may be the only person on LSD who is confused with this question but I'm setting aside my pride for now...

The LR question was:

"We can't know someone's intentions, we can only know consequences of actions, thus we can judge morality only based on consequences of actions" *ASSUMPTION*

Will someone please explain to me why TCR is "Knowing intentions are indispensable to moral judgment"? I keep looking at this question and am still a bit confused...

If knowing intentions are absolutely necessary to moral judgment (as TCR suggests), how can one conclude that we can judge morality without that necessary condition? That is, if TCR = moral judgment --> knowing intentions, wouldn't the contrapositive of that TCR mean "~knowing intentions, then ~moral judgment". The stimulus starts off by saying that we can't know intentions. So, assuming TCR, wouldn't we conclude that we can't have moral judgment (which is not what the stimulus concludes?)

Sorry if this doesn't make any sense and I'm completely misinterpreting the question...I'd appreciate any clarification, though

170+: extremely happy and relieved, down a few raspberry mojitos, thank those who convinced me to keep my score
169: Mother-f#$%er...why does God play with my emotions so?
168 and below: highly likely, unfortunately; perhaps a tear or two at the thought of having to re-take, hope for serenity and calm on December 2nd

Studying for the LSAT / Re: How to Avoid Getting Sick for the LSATs?
« on: October 09, 2006, 06:41:13 PM »
I just made sure I drank lots of fluids and got lots of sleep the 3-4 nights leading up to the exam date. However, if you're really worried about getting sick, you could do as my obsessive compulsive friend does and carry around Purell and wipe your hands with the stuff every five minutes, get an air purifier and take an Airborne tablet every day (I've tried Airborne before and I must admit, the stuff actually tastes pretty good...think diet Sunkist soda).

Studying for the LSAT / Re: rc last passage answers
« on: October 09, 2006, 02:56:51 PM »
I like the sound of that. I was rushed on the last one, but chose B as it didn't strike me as wrong - and I was out of time.

Ditto. I originally put D as my answer for #28 (pure guess), then went back with only 30 seconds left and ending up choosing B because it didn't seem wrong... not confident at all about this, but let's hope I'm not completely unlucky

Pton... although I probably embarrassed my Alma Mater with my performance on Sept 30th
