Studying for the LSAT / Re: LR- must be true

just to clarify Luke.  Are you saying that due to the reserve coal that was mined in 1990 and that fact that this number must be added to the "coal mined" number of 1991 that in order for 1991's numbers to still stay "considerably lower than it had been in 1990" than they (1991) must have consumed more coal than they mined-thus declaring answer choice B the winner?

oct 96, sect 1, #24

Each December 31 in Country Q, a tally is made of the country's total available coal supplies-that is the amount of coal that has been mined throughout the country but not consumed.  In 1991 that amount was considerably lower than it had been in 1990.  Furthermore, Country Q has not imported or exported coal since 1970.

b) RIGHT ANSWER. in country Q the amount of coal consumed in 1991 was greater than the amount of coal mined in 1991.

I don't understand why this must be.  What if country Q mined 5 million lbs of coal and consumed only 2 million lbs.  This would leave 3 million lbs of available coal supplies and which could still be considerably lower than 1990's number. I do however, leave open the possibiblity that I have been studying too long and the answer could be obvious and I am missing it due to lack of sleep. Anyways, apprecitate any help!

Law School Admissions / when to start lsac process?

Studying for the LSAT / june v. sept/oct 08
« on: December 22, 2007, 07:53:04 AM »
i have recently started to study for this obnoxious little test and was wondering if given about 4hrs of study a week would I be ready for june 08, or should i take the extra time and shoot for sept. I gather that it is beneficial to send in apps early (meaning going june lsat) but if the score is lower than it would be if taken in sept then i assume this benefit would be negated. Also, maybe this is a crazy idea but has anyone ever taken an lsat knowing they would cancel their score, and treating it as a sort of dress rehearsal?

After a little work I got 17, but after going over question #16 (same passage) I am confused as to why the answer is not c. This is a support question and given the statement "scientists still do not know of a process that can melt so much ice so quickly" it seems that c "geologists cannot determine the amount of heat required to melt a glacier quickly" is fully supported here.

Since it is obvious that time is limited for me and also apparently for you guys I would like to know what you have found to be the most effective means of studying for this blasted test? I have found the books from Princeton review helpful, any other suggestions?

will the addendum mean much or do most schools just brush them off?

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / work v. study for lsat
« on: November 07, 2007, 07:24:05 AM »
I am planning on taking the june 08 lsat and have been studying off and on for a couple of months now.  The problem is that I am working two jobs (total-40hrs per week). One I have to keep because of my bills but the other one, a paid internship at a legal aid society is an awesome job but taking away from study time.  So should I drop the internship assuming that my lsat numbers will rise with the extra study time or should I keep it with the hope that schools will admire my busy schedule?
Interested in BC, BU, UCONN, GULC
