Canadian Law Students / Re: where are you Canadians?
« on: August 09, 2004, 08:18:27 PM »
I'm Canadian, born and raised in Calgary.

I plan to study in Canada and pretty much stay in Canada... I'm applying to UofA, UBC, UofC, and UVic because I am interested in both environmental law and the petroleum industry, so it only makes sense to stay in Western Canada.

Oh, and I'm not even applying until next year...  ;D

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Will taking the December LSAT hurt me?

Here's a radical idea...

You could put the LSAT off until December (or whenever you are most comfortable), and then apply really early for Fall 2006!

If you are really worried about having an early application as part of your advantage, this would help, and you won't waste any application fees on rejections...

This is what I'm doing, it's just a thought  :)

Okay, so I'm finding that I am really good at all the different types of Logical Reasoning questions, EXCEPT for those that I describe as "Venn Diagram" questions.  For illustration purposes, here is a sample question of what I am talking about:

Preptest #23, Section 2, question 10:

All bridges built from 1950 to 1960 are in serious need of rehabilitation.  Some bridges constructed in this period, however, were built according to faulty engineering design.  That is the bad news.  The good news is that at least some bridges in serious need of rehabilitation are not suspension bridges, since no suspension bridges are among the bridges that were built according to faulty engineering design.

If the statements above are true, then, on the basis of those statements, which one of the following must also be true?

A) Some suspension bridges are not in serious need of rehabilitation.
B) Some suspension bridges are in serious need of rehabilitation.
C) Some bridges that were built according to faulty engineering design are in serious need
   of rehabilitation.
D) Some bridges built from 1950 to 1960 are not in serious need of rehabilitation.
E) Some bridges that were built according to faulty engineering design are not bridges
   other than suspension bridges.

My natural instinct is to start drawing Venn diagrams, but this technique obviously doesn't work, as I have proven to myself over and over.  Yet, I cannot seem to come up with a better strategy for solving these problems!  This is a worrisome problem for me, especially after writing preptest #23, which seemed to have at least 3 of these questions in one LR section.  Ahhh!

Does anyone have a better method for approaching these types of LR questions?  I am really stumped here.

Thanks for all your help!

I also agree with Mike.  I'm writing in October, which is over a year ahead of schedule... I am entering my 5th and final year of UG this fall, and next April I will complete two degrees.  Then I'm working for a year, and then planning for LS in September 2006.  So far, and yet so close!

As for what my job will be, who knows?  I could work in a lab, a law office, a petro plant, a tutoring centre... whatever I can make the most money at!  ;D

And, I'm still only going to be 24 when I plan on entering, which isn't bad...

Quote: Bob Mackenzie? TSN Hockey insider? Chubby guy who gets all the scoops on hockey

Dude, I'm not sure that "TSN" and "Hockey insider" should ever be used in the same sentence...  :-X

It's an old Canadian skit from an old Canadian comedy show called SCTV... Bob and Doug McKenzie ruthlessly portray the stereotypical Canadian.

To anyone silly enough to look at this thread.. I am drunk, so when I constructed the poll I did not notice that:

A)  I spelled Mckenzie wrong in the question for the poll
B)  For some reason, I allowed for two choices to be made, which makes no sense whatsoever.

Sorry I'm a jackass, thanks for your valuable time!

"It's times like these that reaffirm my status as a foreigner in this country!! I had no idea who any of those people were!"

That's okay, Ruskiegirl!  I don't think there are many Americans who are familiar with the likes of Bob and Doug Mackenzie!

Curious... let's put that to a poll!

Yo Mpete...

UofM = U of Manitoba?

Maybe not... just wondering.

(seeing as how this thread is completely pointless in the first place)
