General Off-Topic Board / Re: If you are taking a lie detector test
« on: April 19, 2007, 10:07:31 PM »
I guess if they have a policy that directly states you will not be hired if you used that type of drug, then rationally (although not ethically) it would be better to lie.  I think Polygraphs are only 99%+ accurate, so you could always tell people that you are HONESTLY part of that 1% in which the machine screwed up and save face.  Seriously though, in this case you might as well lie if you had done the drug because you would gain nothing from telling the truth.

Yea, there are actual psychological studies that indicate the more you tell someone you are honest the more likely you are being dishonest.  Not implying you are lying, just something that is a little bit interesting.

It was actually kind of a joke, but the question certainly sounds a bit suspicious.  Anyway, it seems like a lose lose situation because if you are taking a polygraph it is extremely difficult to beat.  People do beat it, but I think it would take some training and if it was a serious polygrapher, they know how to look for cheaters.

Harvard, Yale, Stanford, etc. for the next 30 schools since I did not apply. 


Still waiting on Case!

Hey Lampshade,

It seems to me that you better hope the DOJ doesn't track these threads because you are gonna be screwed.  Hope the drug wasn't that bad! Good luck either way.

It is like a law school version of the fight club.  I wonder who will win.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Michigan vs. Heaven
« on: April 17, 2007, 01:40:27 PM »
Not sure how many Deans Michigan has had, but from what I hear Heaven's has been there for an eternity.  This guy is not only knowledgeable but he is omniscient.  Down side is that he is also omnipresent, so don't think you can get away with missing a class.

If you go to Pitt, since I believe you said that you lived in the Pitt area, it would only cost about 60k because of in-state tuition.  Whereas out of state tuition at Cooley would cost you roughly $11,500 per year for a total of $34,500, I think you would be better off going to Pitt.

Anyway, I am sure this is a flame and not worth the time responding.  Does anyone know how you can determine whether a school "scholarship stacks"?  I am interested in finding out whether MSU does this.  Thanks.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / MSU 0L Asking Questions.
« on: April 09, 2007, 05:18:09 PM »
Sorry, I couldn't resist mocking those 1L (student's from Great schools) who put up the taking question's threads. Anyway, does anyone know roughly what percentage of students at MSU lose their scholarship?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Will I lose scholarship if I retake?
« on: April 09, 2007, 05:09:05 PM »
I think your best bet might be to call LSAC.  At least in that case, you don't have to call the school that will then probably try to figure out who you are or would at the least question your intent.
