Studying for the LSAT / Re: confused, help anyone?

So the argument is that TSX-400 was banned but E and Z were not. However, E and Z are worse than TSX-400, therefore, either they should be banned or TSX-400 should not be banned.

We need to justify this reasoning. What is he really trying to say? Intuitively, he's arguing that if one type of pesticide is worse than another, then it makes no sense to make the less harmful one illegal and have the harmful one be legal.

TCR response basically states this intuitive reasoning but in a more convoluted way. It says that a pesticide should be legal and another illegal if the first one is less harmful.

The answer you chose is incorrect because it is essentially outside the scope of the argument. We don't know anything about what should be legal compared to another type of pesticide and level of harm. The only relationships we have to work with are basing legality off of knowing if one is already illegal.

I'm sorry if my explanation isn't very clear. If you have any more questions, just ask. (I'm practicing explaining answers, I'm prepping to become an LSAT teacher)

You don't need to send it to them. If you wait, you'll get an email from them, telling you that they received your application. And then they'll direct you to another website, that asks you to fill out some supplementary information. After you fill this out, you will have the option of paying online via credit card. Much easier than mailing it.

Can you double check to see that everything was typed up correctly and can you provide the other answer choices?

For some questions, it's better to go by process of elim. (to save time)... reading the question stem the first time, i noticed that there had to be a connection between general education and reform; i just want to see if there are any other choices that bridge that gap.


Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Santa Clara Law

The reason IP firms look for someone with a technical background is so that those guys can sit for a separate patent bar, if i'm not mistaken. It's not totally impossible to get into intellectual property without a technical background but it is certainly tough from what I've read (there's actually an article on the internet by an IP lawyer who explains why they choose someone with a technical background).

That being said, Santa Clara is not the best law school in the Bay but I don't think it's an absolutely horrible choice. They seem to have a fairly decent reputation. You would probably have a tough time getting a job in a big law firm but should be able to get a job at a mid to small firm.

Good luck with Hastings and the other schools you're applying to.

Thanks CalGirl for the information, it's much appreciated. I'll be keeping a look out for you and the other Cal people on this board.

Just one question... I can see both of my letters of recommendation under "Account Status"..does that mean they've been processed and everything is ready to go or does it mean they've just been received and still need to be processed?

And to CalGirl, you have some amazing numbers, congratulations, you'll get in somewhere great! Go bears!

Oh, i just checked... One has been received!! haha.. I'm just freaking out b/c I've sent off all my apps and this is the last piece of the puzzle and I'm a borderline candidate.. i'm trying to get any advantage i can

I'm kind of in the same boat. Both of mine were sent in last week via regular US mail. Did anyone else send them in by regular mail? If so, how long did it take to get there??

Oh and CalGirl... did you go to berkeley??

How do you know if they have been received? Do they email you?

How many wrong to get a 170?
