Studying for the LSAT / Recent Exams
« on: June 06, 2007, 09:29:54 PM »
I noticed that the scale is really really harsh.... For those scoring really high, which sections can you afford to get points off?

Also, Can anyone help with this question

48 section 1 q 10
the administartion at a cerain unviersity has explaine dthis year's tuition increase by citing increased spending on faculty salries and on need based aid to students. hHowever, this year's budget indicated that faculty salries constitue a small part of the unviersity's expenditure, and the only significant increase in scholarship aid have gone to acadmic scholarships awarded regardless of need. The administration's explanation is not believable.

wwhich one of the following most strnethens the argument that administration's explanation is not believable? answer is d, of the substantial items in the budget, the greatest increase was the administrative costs, facilities mainteance cost, and costs assicated witht the provisioon of atheletic facilities. and i was just curious because that answer choice didn't seem strong. WOuld this answer choice be "provide an alternate explanation to the increase, thereby weakening the school administrator's argument?"

Can u, or anyone else whose curiosity I drew with the subject title, help me with this?

prep 42 LR section 2 question 5.

Medical specialists report that the patients with back muscle ijuries who receive a combination of drugs and physical therapy do only as well as those who receive physical therapy alone. Yet the specialists state that drugs are a necessary part of the treatment of all patients who receive them for back muscle injuries. .

Which one of the folloiwng, if ture, most helps to reconcile the medical specialists' two claims?
answer: b) medical specialists who prescrib ethese treatments make accurate judgemtns about who needs both durgs and physical terapy and who needs physcial therepy alone..

my question is... what the HELL????
the premise in the argument stated that "drugs are a neessary part of the treatment of ALLLLLLLLL patients".

 ??? ??? ???

Studying for the LSAT / Recent LSAT trends and a LR question
« on: May 31, 2007, 08:28:18 PM »
I've noticed that the LR questions got much easier in the early preptest 40's and that the scales got much tighter... Is this an evolution that we should expect for the June exam as well?

Also.. I have a question on preptest 41 section 3 question 22...

Paleotologist recently discovered teeth from several wooly mammoths on an isolated Arctic island where no mammoth fossils had previously been found. The teeth were 25% smaller on average than adult mammoth teeth that have been found elsewhere, but they are clearly adult mmmoth teeth. THerefore, provided that the teeth are representative of their respective populations, wolly mammoths that lived on the island were smaller on average than those that lived elsewhere.

So the answer is D) tooth size among adults wooly mammoths was always directly proportional to the overal size of those mammals.

my question is... isn't the conclusion of the argument conditional in nature?, "provided that the teeth are representative of their respective populations, wolly mammoths that lived on the island were smaller on average than those that lived elsewhere" seems like an "if then" statement to me, which shields it from having to presuppose the if clause. So for me, answer b), the tooth wear thatnaturally occurs in many aimals over the course of their audlt years did not result in a significant change in tooth size among adult wooly mammoths a they aged.

Can someone explain this to me?

Have a great day everybody :)

Law School Applications / Ann Arbor LSAT site
« on: May 25, 2007, 11:16:36 PM »
I know this isn't the LSAT thread, but I was just wondering if anyone has taken the exam at michigan law school.. If you have, do you know which room they use to administer the test? I am very concerned that some of the auditoriums at the law school are right next to streets and are really loud. Thank you ~~

Studying for the LSAT / Testing Site conditions
« on: May 25, 2007, 11:14:56 PM »
I'm not sure which of the rooms LSAC would use to administer the test, but I went into one of the auditoriums that "supposedly" they use for my testing site, and it is right next to a sizable street. It's really loud with all the traffic and people walking in the streets, even with all the windows shut. Is this something that I can complain to LSAC about?

Or better yet, if anyone has taken the exam in the Ann Arbor at the law school, does anyone know which room they use?

Studying for the LSAT / The Test Day logistics
« on: May 19, 2007, 09:08:29 PM »
Can anyone who has taken the exam give a sense of what to expect on the test day:
1. how close you sit next to other students,
2. What happens in between sections (I know there is a 10~15 minute break after section 3, but what happens between section 1 and 2, and 2 and 3? is there a couple second break?)
3. anything else that might be informative :)
thank you
