georgetown pt might be a solid possibility.  I believe there 75% was 167.  Also, 3.3 is still within their 25% range.  With some good extra factors such as work experience, age, etc.. you should have a legitimate shot.

anyone got the median numbers fot georgetown part time?

I will be taking a philosophy course which focuses on many of the skills that are used in the lsat. A friend of mine took it and she said that premises, conclusion, sufficient, and all the other lsat buzz words were discussed throughout the class.  I'm taking it anyways, but was wondering if anyone gained a significant advantage in studying by taking a course such as this?

i appreciate all of the feedback.  for the record the disorderly conduct was related to a bar fight.  As for bar eligibility I have been looking into that but no one has gotten back to me yet.  I live and plan on practicing in NY so if any knows their rules I would appreciate the info.

I have read that on apps it is best to be honest and write about the infractions. I am definately going to do this but I was wondering what the consensus was on arrests, I didn't kill anyone or break into any bank vaults, but will schools drop me down their lists due to the two infractions.  For the record the first arrest was six years ago for petit larceny and the second was four years ago for disorderly conduct.  Of course I can explain them both but then again as the saying goes everyone in prison is inocent.

the 158 and 160 were done 1 week apart after 2 months, sorry for the confusion, my first thread should have been more clear.  Anyways as far as diagnostic goes I scored a 141 at a free kaplan test.  At this time though I new nothing and was unaware that logic games were part of the test (needless to say that threw me off a bit). Thanks for the input though, I suppose the bottom line is to never stop studying.

I have been studying for about 2 months and have taken two timed practice tests-158,160. I plan on taking the june test and was wondering if my 160 mark was similiar to those who have scored high after practicing for a similiar time. I know this sort of thing is an inexact science but I'm just wondering how my pace is compared to those who have scored high (170's, high 160's).

Jeffort, nice schedule. But when did you find time for work, school, sex, etc..? Also, how long did you run at this pace?

In most corporataions the salaries of executives are set by a group from the corporatons board of directors.  Since the board's primary mission is to safeguard teh economic health of the coporation rahter than to make its executives rich, this way of setting executive's salaries is expected to prevent excessively large salaries.  But clearly thsi expectation is based on poor reasoning.  After all, most members of a corporation's board are themselves executives of some corporation and can expect to benefit from setting generous benchmarks for executives' salaries.

A, (correct answer) in medical malpractice suits,  giving physicians not directly involved in a suit a major role in determing the damages due to successful plaintiffs.

E, (my wrong answer) in a business organization, distributing a group bonus among members of a task force on the basis of a confidential evaluation, by each member, of the contribution made by each of the others.

now the members of the task force will speak highly of the others in order to bump up their salaries the same way that the board will hike up salaries to bump up their own.  Is this reasonign wrong because unlike the task force teh executives salaries are not tied directly to their actions, because if so than that is weak.  Kinda confused, send help quickly.

Studying for the LSAT / reading question stem first
« on: January 31, 2008, 02:57:01 PM »
just got done with the LR bible and was interested to see that they suggest not reading the question before the stimulus.  This seems to go against nature for me, but the bible said that most successful lsat takers read the stimulus first.  Is this really a good idea (stimulus first) or is it more of a personal preference?
