Studying for the LSAT / Re: Don't tell them your ethnicity

If I had a great grandfather who was black, can I mark the checkbox for African-American? Can I do the same on my apps?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: LGB vs. Big fat genius guide to Logic Games

i'm interested in this as well, so i'm bumping this thread for discussion. i already own lgb and just bought bfg.

Since you have BFG and LGB, what are your thoughts?  On another board a few people recommended the BFG.  They felt LGB had to many rules (mostly the inferences/deductions)?  What's unique about BFG?

I have no idea. I literally JUST bought it, like 30 minutes ago. But I can let you know in a couple of weeks what I think about it. I'm just hoping it will be easier for me to apply than LGB principles.

I just bought the powerscore silent timer for 15 bucks or whatever it was. The annoying feature of this one is that it appears the only way to turn it off is to remove the battery? Anyone else figure out another way to turn it off? lol.

And I don't want to write my brief.

Also, I assume Alci and Mobell (who runs this entire school ;)) will drop by and answer whatever I don't actually know, which is probably a whole lot.



I would ask questions, but I'm afraid I'll like the answers and get too hopeful.

Hmmm, I'll just think of matters about which I am generally curious...  What color is the flooring in the hallways?

And what kinds of trees are around the building?

I want to know.

I love that you list Facebook officer as one of your softs on LSN. I need a little levity right now. :)

One piece of advice to consider.

If you are not feeling great about logic games, it might be worth doing an evaluation of where you stand vis-a-vis types of games, and get build an understanding of your strengths and weaknesses.  To that end, you can quickly skip and leave until last the game you are least likely to do well on, ensuring you get the points where you know you can get them, and, if you're left to guess, you guess on questions you were less likely to get right to begin with.

You can get a very, very good LSAT score and skip a logic game entirely.  Rushing through 4 games and getting problems wrong in each of them is surely worse than confidently attacking 3 games and knowing you got your setups nailed and the answers correct, and purely guessing on a game you aren't likely to do well on to begin with.

thanks gcoop. i remember your name from lurking because you're the nice guy who posted all those logic games setups for 41-45. Too bad i don't own tests 41-45 haha, although I probably should buy them. A few questions if you don't mind, coop.

DO you think that it's worthwhile for me to buy the first 10 lsats, the ones from like 7-17 or whatever? Or are they too old to help me in logic games? I want to focus on grouping and linear and grouping/linear combos since those are the ones that appear the most on the test.
And have you heard anything about that Big Fat Logic games guide? I just feel like making too many deductions and constructing elaborate setups like powerscore has taught me is not helping me at all, and I need to try a new method.

thanks.

very good decision.  wish i would have done that last september.

i don't think you quite need a 161 (maybe a 159 or 160 would suffice).  regardless, it wouldn't hurt.

worst comes to worst.  you apply, don't get in for 2007.  you can then retake the lsat, spend more time on your application, and apply really early. 

thanks younghova. do you think that a 161 will still be good enough even though I'm applying at the end of Buffalo's cycle? Thanks.

Also, can anyone recommend another Games prep book to me besides the LG bible which I already have? I have heard that the The Big Fat Genius Guide to LSAT Logic Games is a great book. Any thoughts on this one? Supposedly he teaches to eliminate wrong answers to find the correct one or something.

Thanks.

I'm so in the same freakin spot right now. I have no idea how one can be so well versed and meticulous in games to the point of the skills becoming second nature. I always miss INFERENCES!!! Die logic games, die.

do you have aim? we both just suck so maybe we can talk about our logic game suckiness in private and try to help each other out. private message me if interested.

Update:

I took the advice of Lonewolf and others in my life and have decided to change my date to February 10th. This is the latest LSAT that Buffalo will accept. I feel fine with regard to LR and RC as I already said. Now I have 10 weeks to ace that damned games section, the only thing keeping me from high 160s.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I already have PT's 19-38 as I said, so shouold I order tests 7, 9-18 etc? Or are these tests useless for logic games practice?

I need to ace this games section and I may just be too stupid to do it, but i know I haven't given it the prep that it deserves and I want to get a 165 and guarantee my admission to buffalo if possible.

thanks.
