Wow, I feel like I'm splurging when I opt for the $15 haircut. What kinds of favors are you guys getting for that extra dough?

Way to get 20 people together in this thread who can now engage in a massive mental masturbatory circle-jerk. Thanks op.As opposed to a non-masturbatory circle-jerk?
Wow, PHIL 265, is that not a prerequisite for a philosophy major?I'm afraid I missed the joke.
PS: Thank you for changing your avatar... that hat was really annoying.Oh shut up. If he's going to say annoying things, or be pompous, or do anything else that deserves ridicule, then go for it. But you've just lowered yourself below his level. He may be misguided, and he may be resistant to good advice, but he is seeking help. All you're doing is acting like a child by telling someone you don't like how they look.
I definitely think my PHIL major is helping, on all sections.
Western philosophy pretty much is LR. In every class, you look at arguments (LR stimuli) and try to figure out what's wrong with them/right about them/how they could be improved.
Formal Logic is a godsend. I don't care what you're majoring in, take Formal Logic. Forget the LG arrows and Not-Blocks from Powerscore, every rule can be diagrammed with Formal Logic symbols.
RC is probably the least affected by a PHIL major, but we do read some dense prose. I doubt PHIL helps more in this case than LIT, HIST, or POLS though.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm late for PHIL 265: Ancient Greek.

Yes, seeing as I'm not taking the LSAT until June 2008. And after that, there's still the admissions cycle, and then I'll finally get to be pretentious and post a "________ 1L Taking Questions" thread.
