Studying for the LSAT / Re: LR question help please
« on: January 02, 2008, 11:49:36 PM »
when people fail to live up to the very ideals they hold in highest esteem, exaggeration of such failings often forms the basis of successful comedy.

This conditional statement is the gist of the argument.
Answer choice D is the paraphrased version of the SC, therefore making 'the comedy' trend NECESSARY, which justifies the conclusion.
Answer E is irrelevant, as what affects the argument is the the condition that 'people fail to live up to the ideals', the degree to which they do so, whether they do it more now than what they did before, does not matter. As long as they still fail to do so AT LEAST sometimes would justify the consequence(the trend in comedy).
Hope this helps.  :)

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Mercer University

I really appreciate what all of you guys said. It makes me think about more than just the numbers and money I get when I apply for law school. I am kind of skeptical about TTT schools being worthless though. So do you think all the people (and there are a lot of schools with tens of thousands of students attending) who are at TT and TTT are wasting their time and money? How about all the Ivy league graduates who choose to work in other places than big law firms? I do want to get a good job that pays me well even though I do not necessarily want to force myself to make six figures by sacrificing other aspects of life if i am given such opportunities. Could you elaborate more on WHY it is such a bad idea to attend TTT schools? Is it purely economical? Does that mean most attorneys in this country regret their choice of attending LS? Thanks for the advice.  :)

 Hey, what do you think about 2nd tier schools? Would you rather choose to attend 1st tier schools even if you can get significant amount of money by attending 2nd tier school? Is attending 3rd tier school really waste of money? My friend was accepted by Mercer but decided to take the LSAT again because she heard so many negative things about TTT schools. BTW I am an undergrad whos taking the LSAT in few weeks. I would be really thankful for some general advice about choosing law school.  :)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: RC - the bane of my life...

Thanks guys for the input. The idea of taking creatine made me laugh. lol I seriously should try it. I think short term memory has a lot to do with it, as well as your ability to focus on the passage for prolonged period of time. I noticed that I forget a lot of what I read when I am running out of stamina or something annoying happens prior or during the test. Like when the dog next door barks I lose focus and have hard time getting it back. This is so frustrating.  :-\

I will be taking either the Feb or June one, depending on how much I improve on my RC. Thanks Wallace for the suggestion. I read tons of Economist articles, didn't seem to help much. hmm..  :P

The truth is, I AM getting nearly perfect on the other sections. I barely miss a question on games, and I consistently miss 1~2 on LR. As you can tell, RC is really difficult for me and I wish there could be some magical solution to my problem.  :P

what frustrates me so much is that no matter how much I study, I can't seem to improve on RC. LR and LG improvements came slowly, but it was consistent process.  :(

 If I can only get the RC down, I could get that dream score...but, it just seems impossible for me right now. I keep on missing 2~3 questions per passage. I do read for the structure. Most of the time it seems like I fail to understand the subtle difference between answer choices. Plus, I am slow as a turtle. I can barely finish two passages and if I am really lucky, maybe I can do half of the third passage. Can anyone help? This makes me wanna cry.  :'(

you could be over studying. usually when people accuse me of overstudying i think they're full of sh*t but lately i think it makes sense. overstudying is when you study so much by looking at details (for example how do i improve on main point questions) and you have all these streategies on how to read and approach questions, that you begin to forget the fundamentals. read each paragraph as if it's a LR stimulus. look out for structure. look for author's perspective, compare and contrats, and distinctions.

Very good one.

RC improvement is so slow. I wish I could just have 3 LR and 1 LG sections. That would make this entire thing so much easier for me.  :D
