isnt the lsat only good for 4 or 5 years? in that case, would the ones from 5 years ago even be reported? this might be worth a phone call to LSDAS.

cant a tests susceptibility to practice also be looked at as a positive? the lsat score can indicate a student's natural analytic abilities (clearly a positive in law school) and/or a students determination, study habits, etc... (also positives in law school). while a low lsat score does not preclude the presence of one (or all) of these traits, having a high lsat score certainly is a strong (though not infallible) indicator of these.
Now your losing the plot. The test doesnt do any of those things at all and is a horrible indicator of future success either as a lawyer or law student. The problem is that an aptitude test that is so heavily influenced by practice is no longer an aptitude test but rather a test of how good you are at taking the test. A good aptitude test would not be affected by this and would be more indicative of students actual aptitude (assuming you can design such a test that does that which even LSAC havent done).
i know that everyone is about to have huge bills, but I wanted to pass along a link for anyone in the market for a new laptop in law school. i just got mine for a really good price and its wireless ready and everything you will need in law school (except you might need to get an external floppy if your school requires it).

If these Ranks have such a problem with America, they should move to the USSR!
I guess it bothers me when a judge draws an arbitrary line and says "before this point it is most certainly not human and can be aborted, but after this point it is a human and cannot be aborted." So in drawing that line, I'd err on the side of safety. Incidentally, since I don't think that "conception" is the magic word, I'm in favor of the so-called morning-after pill...
