Studying for the LSAT / Re: Quick formal logic question
« on: February 06, 2008, 02:48:01 PM »
EarlCat,

Sorry that my thread has stirred a bit of a controversy, but I really want to be clear on the correct way to interpret formal logic stimuli. When "few" (NOT "a few") is used in a stimulus, do you tell your students that it means "some are" or "most are not" or something else?

It was my impression that we should equate "few fail" with "most are." I used this approach in a problem and it worked out just fine for producing the correct answer. Right now, my thought is that "few"="most are not" and "few fail"=most are." Are these notions correct? Thanks for the clarification!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Discussion Group Schedule for June 2008 Test

Jeffort,

Thanks for your help in setting this up! I really like the idea of creating a semi-private board similar to what you did for some of us wanting to read one another's personal statements, addenda, etc.

The moderator of the semi-private board could start a new thread for each PrepTest that the study group discusses and everyone could post about questions they have from that PT or explanations to others' questions. In theory, the chat room idea is great, but I have a feeling that a message board is more practical for accommodating the greatest number of people.

What does everyone think?

I'd like to see Rocker Penny Lane. You with a sweet guitar or something. :)

How are you planning to review the PTs? Via chat or Jeffort's site or some other method? Is it alright to participate in only some of the review sessions? I want to get in on this but I may not coincide exactly with that schedule.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Prep test 52 (Sep 2007 LSAT)

Jeffort you claim to be an LSAT tutor, surely you must see that you are making some very large assumptions in your argument.

You assume that I haven't already bought and paid for the paper prep test, wrote in it, and wish to print off another copy instead of trying to erase everything, but leaving marks, so basically I might as well not erase anything at all.

Did you ask that Jeff?

As a totally random sidenote, I think this points to a legitimate reason why LSAC should sell a license key with each PrepTest to allow the buyer to access a PDF version. Then people could print off as many copies of the test as they wanted. I suppose there would still be copyright concerns, but it would be nice.

You've been accepted everywhere! To what school do you plan on sending a LOCI?

I'm sorry I don't have answers for you.

Law School Applications / Re: Held at UChicago...anyone else?

Got the hold letter today. The irony is that I went to the grad school, took classes at the law school, and had LORs from law profs. So I'm thinking that someone there has a personal vendetta against me?   :-[

Obviously I'll be writing one of the essays.

I'm sorry, hobbes! That makes no sense, but I think you still have a great shot if you send in the extra essay. At least you have the Cornell acceptance today to soften the blow a bit.

General Off-Topic Board / Re: MAS: Don't Disturb the Sexy

Even if you get in?

Even if I get into Vanderbilt and Georgetown.  I may retake and take a year off.


I'm having big trouble imagining not living in Chicago next year.

Does Northwestern have ED?

Yup and, Confused, I think someone with your numbers (if I remember them correctly) got in to NU ED this cycle.

I can't wait to see what campaigns are like in 25 years: all those pictures of college debauchery from Facebook showing up in attack ads.

I think it'll be more like 10-15 years, but yea it'll be very interesting petty and stupid.
