He's not kidding. I tried. I gave up. Best to just know your role.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: How can I improve my reading?
« on: March 26, 2012, 04:51:26 PM »
The majority of topics of the reading passages in the LSAT deal with things like history, politics, and physical sciences like geology or cell biology. To strengthen your reading skills, look up articles on a number of topics in those areas online, or buy/borrow from the library magazines that deal with those topics, and practice reading them. But, rather than working on your speed initially, focus on finding the main point of the article, the structure of the article and each paragraph's place in it (supporting or refuting the main point), which are the areas the Reading Comprehension section will test. Once you're getting better at that, start working on your speed, which should have already increased as a result of the other work you've done.

General Board / Re: Jury Nullification

As an officer of the court, it's a practice I cannot condone or even mention during the performance of my duties.

As a citizen serving on a jury, if faced with a decision to nullify or hand down a decision I felt was unjust, I'd nullify in a heartbeat.

Not unless it's a reputed diploma mill, which I doubt if they have sports teams.

Stop crossposting from closed threads. They're closed for a reason.

Don't be so serious amidst all our idiocy and jostling.

Julie condemns all repubs, whilst supporting Newt and then Rick-  What doesn't mesh?

San Dimas High School football rules!!!!!

Isn't San Dimas where Bill and Ted began their excellent adventure?

Yep. And "San Dimas High School football rules" is how the student presenting before Bill and Ted finished his speech. Before that, I think he said something along the lines of, "Everything's bigger, but smaller. It's computers." It's been ages since I last saw that movie.

Advice for a 0L who will be living in her law school city the summer before law school? Best way to start networking before school starts?

Go to the first post in the thread, read each bullet point, and if it's something you can do, do it. Also, go back through posts by Matthies and take from them all the wisdom you can.

Because the search function is crap, and that won't change. But dot knows that; she's a forums vet.

If you see people banned or shouted down at TLS, send them a PM to invite them here. The information is good, with a dose of realism. Only the traffic is lacking, and that's easily fixed.

Not a bad idea (in theory) but how can you PM a Banned member?

Obviously, you can't. So that would go more with the "shouted down" part of my post. As an option for a banned user, you can send an e-mail, if it's public in their profile, which should still be visible even when banned.
