Studying for the LSAT / Re: is the LSAT getting harder?
« on: October 24, 2007, 12:37:40 PM »
I was consistently averaging 165 in 2003-2004 lsats. then in the 2005-2006 lsats it dropped consistently to 160-161.  But then for june 2007 and sept 2007 I got 163.  Im pretty consistent too so I think it did get harder.                 2005/6>2007>2004/3

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Questions about applying before retaking

Isn't dec still pretty early in the cycle?  I talked to Boston College and they said applying early decision doesn't really affect their decision.  On GW's website it also said ED doesn't help much. 

Btw if I raise my score from 163 to 165 is that much of a difference to the admissions committee?

Studying for the LSAT / Is the Lsat/gpa a good predictor of my chances...

if I was an engineering major in college and I have a masters in engineering?  I mean how much of a boost is it?  I'd like to get into BC but my lsat 163(retaking in dec) and my gpa 3.43 shows I don't have a very good chance.  BC lsat avg is 164 and 3.44 is their low range for gpa

Were you guys as disgusted as me about the Matt Hamil vs Michael Bisping fight?  I thought Matt should have won.  Sign the petition below if you feel the same.

Affirmative Action / Re: How do my fellow asians feel about AA?

The particular moments I notice racism is when a person of other ethnic background does not like me (not necessarily because of my racial background), then my being Asian adds another reason to justify their hatred (as it becomes obvious when that person gets into verbal fight with me lol)

That's quite blatent there.  What made him so pissed off?

Minority Topics / Re: LSAT Minority Statistics
« on: September 07, 2007, 11:25:56 PM »
I don't think that African Americans average is that bad, afterall caucasians don't score that much higher 150 is not really that much better than 147. What is more interesting is that women score lower than men. Why is that?

Women score lower on just about every major test from GRE, SAT, LSAT, GMAT, etc.  Maybe they score lower because women and men are different

Affirmative Action / How do my fellow asians feel about AA?

I always hear from the perspective between white and black.  I'd like to hear from the other side as well, the minorities who aren't considered disadvantaged minorities.  I'd like to begin with my background; typical middle class immigrant family.  My family never pushed or encouraged me to study or anything.  In fact, I sucked all the way up until high school. I'd like to hear how you guys feel about the common arguments for AA.  It be nice to have diversity in the classroom but not at the expense of equal opportunity

1) Lack of minorities in faculty discourages minorities to pursue certain fields.

me:  I was only one of few asians in most of my classes.  It didn't bother me really, and I never felt intiminated.

2) Lack of role models

me: Pshh.. who needs role models anyways, never have never will.

3)  Tests are biased against minorities

me: My family always spoke chinese at home.  When I first looked at the LSATS I was so confused with conditional statements and formal logic but after studying my ass off I see some major improvements.  A little bit of studying and dedication can make up for a lot.

4)  Many minorities have been discriminated

me:  I haven't, at least I hope I didn't...

5)  Many minorities grew up in a culture that discouraged education

me: true my parents never gave a sh** about my school work.  They rather have me work and make money.

Try taking the test in a library. Preferably a place with a lil more shuffling
