It's the first standardized test I've walked out of thinking I did better than I actually did.


It seems a lot of the June '07 takers were like that.  There was a lot of chirping around here immediately after that test, but no shortage of clipped wings laying around a few weeks afterwards.
180 for that epic metaphor.

The data isn't being observed over a long enough period of time.  In the stimulus, how are we to know that those nine-year-olds who can recognize the logos of different cigarette brands will grow up to smoke at a much higher rate than those who cannot recognize the logos?

A) Is parallel because the observation period is only three months, not long enough to measure the effects of mercury poisoning.

i broke my wrist snowboarding on spring break a couple years ago.  after i talk about how i break it, i want to write..."So much for spring break." or something to that effect.

Oh God, I was rooting for you until that...

I'd advise against including it.

Affirmative Action / Re: Where can I get me some white privilege?

An amazing post, but I think this is the clincher! :D

46. I can chose blemish cover or bandages in "flesh" color and have them more or less match my skin.

This has kept me up at nights.

I'm not being sarcastic (well, not completely).

How's the living situation, both in price and quality?

How's Lexington?

How's [insert thing about W&L that you'd wish someone would ask]?

Personal Statement / Re: Addendum Neccessary?

I would.  Having lots of P/Fs on your transcript isn't typically a good thing, but if you add an addendum they'll know it was standard policy (and the addendum will also draw more attention to a cool Extracurricular).  Just make sure they're all Ps and not Fs.

And make sure you do the last couple early in the morning, at the same time as the real thing. Adjust your sleep schedule accordingly.
Excellent advice.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Are the scores on this site for real???

I'm not taking issue with making fun of Cooley.  In fact, I thought eveman's riddles were funny.

It's just that every time someone asks a question on LSD, The Truth is right behind, saying "Have fun at Cooley," or "They'll take that score at Cooley," or "OMGWTF COOOLI IS TEH SUXXORZ!!!11!"

The repetitiveness of the stock phrases takes the magic out of mocking Cooley.  When it is mocked, it should be mocked well, and it should be mocked for good reasons.

Quote from: Lindbergh
I know people from Cooley who are far more successful than anyone on this board will ever be.

Props.  We should all start our days with such a healthy dose of perspective.

You need to do a few practice tests under proctored conditions (get a friend to help you out, reserve a room in the library, etc.).

On test day, you won't have time to recharge between sections.  LSAC's goal is to fry your brain halfway through the LSAT so you screw up.  Your job is to have prepared your brain enough so it won't be fried.  The only way to do that is to practice taking three-hour exams.

Good luck.
