Studying for the LSAT / Re: Here is another reasoning question- thanks!

A) The study doesn't say that 1 out of 5 people has back pain, it says that 1 out of 5 people OVER 30 HAVE A SPECIFIC CONDITION THAT SHOWS NO CHRONIC SYMPTOMS.  Way off.

B) The pain stems from lack of exercise in general, but that doesn't mean that lack of exercise is the only source of back pain.

C) This makes a claim about acute pain, but the reading only mentions chronic pain.

D) This one seems close, but there are plenty of things doctors don't know about your future  that could lead to back pain, and even if they did (e.g., if they knew you weren't going to exercise), the reading states that the correlation between back pain and exercise is only a general correlation, not a strict one.

E) Note that this doesn't say the strategy WILL 100% OF THE TIME be effective; it says that it can be effective.  Keeping in mind the general correlation mentioned above, we can see that this strategy would be to exercise.

Just tell them that the tickets were bull, and you don't feel responsible to this extent for your actions.  They'll like that.

It's on the main page, where you can see the Pre-Law and S/G boards.

You'll get me in, right?

Co-sign. 15 hours a week working =/= legitimate excuse for poor grades. You've had an upward grade trend, however, which is excellent. The adcomms will note this. If your cum GPA is just barely above a 3.0, it might be worth mentioning something. If you want to include an addendum, I suggest it say something along the lines of:

I appreciate the committee's consideration regarding the upward trend of my GPA over the last four years. Adjusting to college life proved to be more difficult than I had anticipated, and this was reflected in my first year grades. I am proud of my accomplishments and have been consistently recognized on the Dean's List for the past X semesters. Having beat this early set-back, I feel confident that I am prepared to manage my time effectively to be successful in a law school setting.

Just keep it short and sweet. Addendums don't need to be more than 1-2 paragraphs.

Thanks a bunch.

Cool.  That's what I figured, but this was one of those things where the consequence is severe enough to make you ask a dumb question just to make sure you're right.

Thanks folks.

Right, that's why I'm so interested in it.  However, this friend of a friend claimed that even if you're rejected from the Early Decision program, you're cut off from scholarships from other schools.

I should really go put my laundry in the dryer bump.

I've been looking at the GW Early Decision option for some time now, and it seems a more attractive option the more I think about it.  I just heard from a friend of a friend, however, that applying ED to GW will result in you not being offered any scholarships from other schools, even if you're rejected at GW.

I have a hard time believing that this is true, but I thought I'd consult the general wisdom of LSD before telling her she's full of *&^%.

Has anyone heard anything along these lines?
