Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Yo Mama's so asian...
« on: August 27, 2004, 08:20:56 PM »
if you're not asian, i will murder you myself. 

A lot of the LSAT is just internalizing things and playing it by ear, but how many people are being very explicit about studying for the LSAT? 

For example, there are like 13 question types that the LG bible has classified, and it has general approaches for each one.  In Powerscore, I know they want you to classify each question stem before you attack the question. 

 I've also tried to memorize some modifier words that might be tricky, or which indicate certain causal relationships.  Are there any things you guys memorize?  I am thinking word lists, certain common constructions, etc. On Logic Games, there are certain "templates" that you can memorize.  Does anyone go through and memorize these, and is it HELPFUL? 

If you have the LG bible, it says on page 200 to "memorize" a list of phrases.  Does anyone actually go through and memorize these by rote?

it has varied a lot, but does anyone have a fulll averaged scale?  is 180 typically 99/101 or what?

Law School Admissions / This review about a law school book is hilarious

Jesus Christ.  From a review on Amazon: 

" THIS BOOK SAVED ME OVER $100,000.00!!!, July 27, 2004
 Reviewer:    stargazer "rescued" (PA) - See all my reviews 
Boy am I lucky to have found The Ultimate Guide to Law School Admission. I picked it up because a friend recommended it to me as being the best book for the law school application process, and was she right! When I got the book I skipped right to the chapters on the admission process and found the whole thing very informative and encouraging. It let me know that even though I'm not the best student, there are plenty of schools that I would definitly get in to, and it told me how to make my application the best it could possibly be. I am sure that I would have gotten into at least a couple of the schools I had picked to apply to. However, lucky for me, before I sent in my applications I decided to read the book again. This time I started with the first chapter "Should I go to law school." Guess what? Being a lawyer isn't what I thought it was! I mean, this book told me things about what lawyers personal lives are like, and what their average work day is like... stuff that I had never gotten anywhere else! This chapter convinced me that I would not be happy being a lawyer! Not only did this chapter save me from the expensive application fees... it saved me from spending the next three years wasting my time, and tuition money, pursuing a degree that would have put me in a job that apparently isn't right for me at all! Thank you Mrs. Wright, you saved me $100,000.00! I definitly recommend that EVERYONE read this chapter first! Don't go to law school without it!!! "

I caused my friend to get a parking ticket.  However, he doesn't have the ticket info.  I don't want to bother him, since I already should have paid it by now.  How can I pay the ticket for him without the info?  What would happen if I sent in a check with my name to pay his fine [otherwise, if the money is lost, i would not know]?  Is there anyway to do this? 

Law School Admissions / Marry Another Lawyer-Yes or No?

I like the Mastercard commercial or wherever where this lawyer guy is going through all these stupid dates where he has nothing in common with all the women.  Then, they cut to a date where's he's introducing himself to the woman. 

Him "So, tell me what you do for a living?"
Her: "Well, I'm a lawyer."  *smiles*
Him:  *smiles*

*end commercial*

I know they're totally irrelevant and no one should study with them, but does anyone have copies of them?  8 and 17 are the ones not included in the first book "10 actual LSAT's"  I'd be interesting in seeing them.  They used to have family tree logic games when it was another testing company.  wowzers

Studying for the LSAT / Someone please diagram these for me

I am looking at the LR bible, and they list these phrases as indications of cause and effect.  Which way would the logic flow in each case

e.g. they list "caused by, because of, etc"

X is caused by Y [e.g. this would be Y-->X]

X is because of Y
X is responsible for Y
X is the reason for Y
X leads to Y
X is induced by Y
X is promoted by Y
X is determined by Y
X is produced by Y
X is a product of Y
X played a role in Y
X was a factor in Y
X is an effect of Y
