Considering manna was a food, it doesn't even make sense.

Well, my SAT math score correlates perfectly using the method with my LSAT score, so everybody else's should too.

You're confused.  The word is actually 'reguiring' - no second 'e' - and doesn't exist as a noun.

Sure it could.  The ability to follow a mathematical process and the ability to follow a logical process, which is what LR boils down to, could be very related.  That doesn't mean that V doesn't correlate, just that M does.

First, very rough draft.  280 words.  Takers?

It usually indicates 'some,' although I suppose it could, in a highly context-dependent proposition, be treated as a 'not all.'

The longer a pretzel stays in contact with teeth, the higher likelihood of cavity.

The longer a caramel stays in contact with teeth, the higher likelihood of cavity.

The correlation thus holds within each category (pretzels, caramels).

We have no evidence to compare whether any duration of caramel-teeth contact has a higher or lower likelihood of cavity than any duration of pretzel-teeth contact.

The correlation does not hold across the two categories. 


You're confused on the meaning/reguirements of general correlation.

As long as I'm busting your balls, 'reguirements' isn't a word.


Take your SAT (say, 1200), divide it by 1/2 (600), drop the last zero (60), and add a one in front (160) to get your predicted LSAT score, plus or minus 5 points (155-165). 

It's a wide range, and you're not necessarily bound by it.  For example, you may have been very unprepped for your SAT, etc. 

1200 divided by 1/2 is 2400.  But we know what you meant.

I heard it was just the math section that correlated.

But it's not all HS students... SAT takers may be a larger subset, but they're also self-selecting.
