i heard that with the sabbath lsat takers their scale is based on those who take it that day. not a lot take it on that day. so, if they all happend to be extremely bright, then that just sucks for those who aren't scoring that high.

Thanks for the boost in confidence, but I am looking into Hofstera and St James. You think it's too late for these schools?

Law School Applications / a december lsat taker
« on: November 28, 2007, 03:24:59 PM »
so, i am planning to take the test this saturday and applying for next year's admission. considering, that i am taking my lsat late in the game, is it still possible to have a chance to get in to law school for nexy yr- i am looking at mostly 3rd and 4th tier school and not sure if that makes a difference in my situation- i think i'll get about a 160- 162 on the lsat and my gpa is a 3.91
oh, and by the time my lsat scores come, all the schools will have received my application.
thanks guys.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: question on a potential RC strategy
« on: November 25, 2007, 07:12:58 PM »
The problem is that there are no patterns in what I am getting wrong. 99% of time it's b/c I do not feel like I have enough time and so I fall for the trap answer.
Any suggestions?

Studying for the LSAT / question on a potential RC strategy
« on: November 25, 2007, 05:34:58 PM »
I keep getting about 5-7 wrong in the RC section.
Is it a good strategy to focus on doing three of the passages - so I have more time to check my answers and get a higher accuracy?( that's assuming I leave out the passage with the least number of questions out and just guess on them).

thank you so much for taking the time to answer them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just finished going through all the weakening questions from testmasters. can u explain the answers to these two please?

1. citizen: each year since 1970, a new record has been set for the number of murders committed in this city. this fact points to the decreasing ability of our law enforcement system to prevent violent crime.
   city official: you overlook the fact that the city's population has risen steadily since 1970. in fact, the number of murder victims per 100 people has actually fallen slightly in the city since 1970.


question: which of the following, if true, would most strongly counter the city official's reponse?

answer: if the health care recieved by assualt victims last year had been of the same quality as it was in 1970, the murder rate of the city last year would have turned out to be several times what it actually was.

2. since anyone who supports the new tax plan has no chance of being elected, and anyone who truly understands economics would not support the tax plan, only someone wh truly understands economics would have any chance of being elected.question: the reasoning in the argument is flawed because the argument ignores the possibility that some people who:

answer: do not support the tax plan do not truly understand economics

( i know the second question has the flaw being a necessary/sufficient swtich in that the necessary condition ( not undertanding) is taken to be a sufficient one. however, i do not where to take it from there.

thanks guys!!!!!!!!!!
