Just found this thread.  I feel like I've found my peoples.  Although I've read most of these books a long time ago, I thought I'd give my 2 cents.

I second these books as great books to read:
  Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series
  Ursula Le Guin's Earthsea books
  T.H. White's The Once and Future King
  and anything by Orson Scott Card
  Marion Zimmer Bradley's trilogy (forgot the name though)

In addition I highly recommend:
  Terry Brooks' Sword of Shannara series (fantasy)
  Society of the Mind by Eric L. Harry  (sci-fi thriller)
  Ishmael or The Story of B by Daniel Quinn  (can't really categorize)
  Doomsday Book by Connie Willis  (sci-fi/fantasy)
  Prey by Michael Crichton  (sci-fi fiction)

OK, I could keep going but I'll stop.  I guess I lied.   ..So I gave you more like 10 cents.  ;D

I don't recommend The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever by Stephen Donaldson.  I have to admit while I was reading them, I just couldn't finish them fast enough, but if you don't like feeling depressed I suggest staying away from the Thomas Covenant series.

I just finished Angels & Demons which I really liked - what a page turner - and plan on reading the DaVinci Code sometime soon.  Also reading Bringing Down the House about a group of MIT students who make millions beating the system in Vegas and of course How to Get Into the Top Law Schools.

Jeez, don't worry about being 33.  You're way younger than a lot of people on this board including me.  With a 3.86 you'll have no problems getting into a T1 if you get 155+ on the lsat. Still, apply to T2 schools for safeties.  Good luck, but I don't think you need it.  ;)


I don't want to upset you or rehash this entire debate.  I'm just letting people know that on a question that we reviewed in my TM class that "most" was treated as "more than half". 

You may be correct that in formal symbolic logic it is considered the same as "some", but that is beside the point.

Please enjoy your weekend.  :)

Law School Admissions / Re: Hmong Law Student Discussion Board

That's ok, I'm not hurt about anything anyone has posted.
Shoot, I didn't know what a Hmong was either; I've just vaguely heard of them.  I was enlightened when a fellow poster provided a link to an article about them.  I learn something new everyday on this board.

I just want to state that not all east asians believe as choson and dsong do.

At first I thought that they were just joking around, but now I'm beginning to believe they actually believe the stuff they post about the Hmong and this hierarchy crap.

Just because they are the most agressive and prolific posters, I hope the rest of the board does not believe that all Koreans are bigotted.

In TM we were taught that most = more than half.

Ex.  Most women are smart.
     Most women are healthy.
     Thus some women are smart and healthy.

If "most" were treated the same as "some", the conclusion above would not necessarily be true; however, I remember we had an lsat problem that was similar to this example.  Hope this helps the OP.

Consider the following question.  It is a flawed argument (according to the LSAT).  However, if "most" is logically equivalent to "at least one" then this argument would NOT be flawed.  True?

PrepTest 15 Section 3 Question 22

In Sheldon most bicyclists aged 18 and over have lights on their bicycles, whereas most bicyclists under the age of 18 do not.  It follows that in Sheldon most bicyclists who have lights on their bicycles are at least 18 years old.

Which one of the following exhibits a pattern of flawed reasoning most similiar to that in the argument above?

No, the flaw is the number of 18 and older bicyclist vs. under 18.
There could be 6 of 10 w/lights on their bikes who are 18+
whereas under 18 w/lights could be 49 of 100.
The conclusion would be false, as most bicyclists w/lights are under 18 (49:6).

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Would you apply to Northeastern?

Everything I've read about Northeastern sounds great. I just wish it was located somewhere on the west coast or at least in the mountain states. :(
Does anyone know if there's a ls with a comparable coop program on the west side?

Lexy, you're going to be a damn good lawyer. Subtle, very subtle.  :)

Wow, that's great news. If I applied to CU I'd have a 4.0. That's unbelievable! Candide, you've just made my day. Thanks.
