Law School Applications / Re: Whatever Happened to TheTruth?

DB: 157/3.6. I've seen his soft factors. [...] It reads like a decent recent graduate resume, plus a respectable soft factor.

Right.  Once you accommodate demographic considerations, I think solid-but-not-spectacular softs are sufficient to explain an admission to a top 10 school.  I don't think he needed "amazing" softs for Boalt; he would have been a pretty strong candidate without them.

PS: I spent a good twenty seconds trying to figure out what DB stood for.

Haha :D

If I were in your shoes, I think I'd go to Howard if accepted.  If not, you can always take a year off and put in plenty of time studying for the LSAT.  Since you've already taken it twice, you only have one more chance (depending on how long ago you took the exams) so you should make sure you know your stuff before you sign up to take it again.  You have a good gpa so improving your LSAT score will help you tremendously.  Good luck.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: June 2007 PT, section IV, question 7

C is wrong because in line 23, the author lists Dove as one of several recent writers who produce work in both genres.  The writers that he didn't elaborate on could have preceded Dove which would mean that her method of writing did have precedent in the U.S.

"Still looking for housing?  Truth is going to Boalt BTW..."

Not sure if its true but...

Amazing soft factors indeed.

How on earth do you guys find out stuff that he didn't tell you???  Must be some real detectives on these boards.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: PT 49 LR Help in sections 2 & 4
« on: May 05, 2008, 08:38:34 PM »
Please help me!

OK for Section 2: #s 10, 19

10. I chose A. After going through the problem, I can see why it is incorrect and why E is the correct choice. However, I can also see D being true. Can someone explain why D is wrong?

19. I chose C and crossed off D. I am totally confused on this one. ??? 

Section 4: 6, 12, 22, 23

6. I chose D and crossed off B and E. I thought D was correct..

12. Even after going back and reviewing this one, I can still see the truth in D.

22. I chose B.

23. I chose C.

Thank you in advance!! =)

Section 2;
10.  Wouldn't have picked D because neither one of them was talking about the rationality of pursuing wealth.
19. I don't really know how to effectively explain how D is the correct answer. You should look at the logical reasoning bible, it discusses these kinds of problems in detail or maybe someone else here can.

Section 4:  I don't have the answers to these with me so I could be wrong
6. I'd pick A. The argument already adresses that the myths developed independently and I don't see how any further demnostration would be relevant to the argument.  As for the fear of horses in the conclusion, the argument doesn't establish that the creature truly represents the horse in ppl's minds after all, if it's half man and half horse, it could represent man or something else all together.

12. A. Read the stimulus a bit more closesly.  There is evidence/proof that the oil industry does not have the highest profits so D cannot be the answer

22. C.  The conclusion says that the division does not increase barriers because the new small countries are not self-sufficient so the economist must be assuming that you have to be self-sufficent in order to put up barriers to free trade.

23. I would pick A but I'm not confident about it so I can't really explain.

Hope all that made sense.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Turning down a T14 IN THIS ECONOMY!

The salary for academics make no sense to me.  Are they working as TAs or something?

I had difficulties with conditionals as well but as I kept studying, I started tlo get the hang of it.  I found it helpful to rephrase conditional statements in "if...then" terms.  It helped me get a firm grasp on which was the necessary condition and which was the sufficient. Maybe you can try that and see if it helps.  Good luck with studying and EarlCat is right, maintain a positive attitude.  One cannot overstate how important it is to be confident for this test.

Affirmative Action / Re: AA: More harm than good?
« on: March 31, 2008, 04:09:50 PM »
That took a while.  Do you think it was worth the wait?

Only if my thesis ends up getting published.  So probably not.

I have laundry to do.  Enjoy your day, sweetie.

See this is exactly why AA works, and we should not be discouraged by it, it just takes time. You see there was a point in history where only white men could attend law schools. Then came AA. And we had to let women in. They got used to working hard, competing with men, and eventually some even graduated near the top of their class. With the advent of prepping for months the LSAT it made it easier for women to get in if they worked hard enough and eventually AA for them ceased.

Now we come to the point that most law schools have more women than men. This is close to the society as whole demographics wise. Yet, this poster still knows her place. AA is letting her go to law school, even a good one, but she has not shirked her womanly duties in the mean time. Sheís still doing her man,s laundry. Same with minorities, eventually they will make up a percentage of the demographics of law school equal to society the same as women. While I think you could argue the legal profession certainly has diminished since AA for women, itís not the end of the world. Itís not like they get paid the same overall or make partner very often, thank god. But we gave them a shot and now they have more choice than just marrying a lawyer they can actually try out at being one till they get board and have babies!

Hmm...you're funny. I laughed.l
