Studying for the LSAT / Re: Silence on Writing Samples
« on: November 09, 2006, 03:39:10 PM »
I was enrolled in a blueprint course pre-September, and we were assigned roughly 8-9 reading comprehension passages for homework per lesson (16 normal lessons, not counting practice tests and workshops). That's *a lot* of reading comprehensions. There were also 6-7 lessons that contained instruction on reading comps (what to mark in the passages, examinations of different structures common among reading comps, etc).

On the other hand, we spent somewhere around 30 minutes of a single lesson going over writing samples. We looked at 2 sample answers, and had 1 practice writing sample.

That's a substantial difference; I think that macphisto has a point, and that theo's counterpoint is pretty poor. If prepcompanies are any indicator of the importance of writing samples, then writing samples aren't very important.
