Studying for the LSAT / Whats your approach to Grouping Games
« on: July 17, 2007, 12:56:23 AM »
I typically start by charting the variable sets, rules and then the possible distributions, then possible inferences, so my question is this.  What do you do?

So I have started to go though the grouping games and decided to start with the first ones Tests 2-10, expecting them to be less challenging compared to the later ones.  I struggled with coming up with effective setups, making several attempts and had a difficult time with the inferences as well, especially on the Lizards, Snakes, Gerbils and Hamsters game.   I've been going through the LGB, but it leaves much to be desired in the way of grouping games.  There's gotta be some general principles in approaching Grouping game setups, no?  These games weren't covered by the PS setups guide, so I was left to guess on my own.  Some ove the rules in from the games (Tests 5, 6, 8 and such) seemed convoluted and confusing, and I found it difficult to make inferences. What do I do?

My Ugrad GPA was a 3.00 so I was expecting my LSDAS GPA to be a 2.85 or so.  Well, They processed my transcripts and I was left with a 2.76.  Am I screwed?  Will I have to score a 160 to get into any law school?  I am caucasian, so I am at a disadvantage in that regard.  Am I screwed?  I wasn't expecting to get into a T1 school but was hoping to have a shot at a T2 or T3. Any advice? Input?

Studying for the LSAT / LR Bible Question

What should we do with the chapter on Formal Logic? Skip it?  The author says that only one to three formal logic problems appear on the LSAT, so should I skip it or grin and read it?  I''m just not sure if it is an important chapter or if it is meant as a side option for those who have mastered most or all of the other areas.

I asked them how they rate the scores of accommodated tests vs regular scores. And what did they say?  NO I wouldn't be at a disadvantage because they are compared equally with the other scores, meaning they would be regarded the same as any other.

Should or is an applicant be at a disadvantage in the admissions process due the fact they got extra time on the LSAT due to a disablitity/impairment?

Studying for the LSAT / Test Accommodations Good News/Questions
« on: June 05, 2007, 11:56:00 AM »
I have ADHD pretty bad, so I had to apply for accommodations for the Sep test.  I was granted the following:

-17 extra minutes for each timed section (time and a half)
-17 extra minutes for the written section
-15 minute break between sections 3 & 4

Is this normal?  Was I given the usual amount of extra time for someone with ADHD?  Do they usually give more or less?

Many of us do not come from wealthy families, thus we'll need some financial aid.  Yet there is a forum to discuss this.
