Incoming 1Ls / Law school exams
« on: February 23, 2008, 08:59:58 AM »
If a school requires you to use a specific exam software package, I assume that package restricts network and/or software access on your machine.  What are students typically allowed to use while working on an exam?  Are you able to use Word, or similar software, to view your notes/outlines?

Incoming 1Ls / Patent agent exam
« on: February 07, 2008, 10:40:40 AM »
Is anyone else considering taking the patent agent exam prior to entering law school?  Without even starting law school, I am not 100% sure that patent work is something I want to do, but it may help me get a job if I do choose to go that path.  Anyone in the same position care to share their thoughts?

Choosing the Right Law School / Iowa scholarships
« on: February 04, 2008, 06:37:31 PM »
LSAC shows a large number of full-tuition scholarship recipients at Iowa, but the figures on LSN seem to show a very limited number of scholarship offers.  I know some high LSAT/GPA admits have received scholarship offers already, but the data from past cycles does not give much information regarding scholarship offers for other admits.  Has anyone heard much about the Iowa scholarship process?

Studying for the LSAT / Preptest 27, Game 2

Anyone have suggestions for a setup for this game with the M/F Lizards and Snakes?

Studying for the LSAT / Either or answer choices in games
« on: January 17, 2008, 02:54:12 PM »
I think I know the intent for answer choices like this, but I was taking a test today #32 October 2000 and on game #3 I was presented with answer choices asking where an object had to be placed.  The answer choices were all x or y types.

If T is performed fifth and F is performed sixth, then S must be performed either
A fourth or seventh
B third or sixth
C third or fourth
D second or seventh
E first or fourth

S can be performed fourth or seventh and TCR is A.  Are not choices C, D, or E logically correct as well?  If one of the elements in an answer choice like this is true, then the answer is also true, right?  Had the question been phrased "The two spots where S could be performed are..." this would not be an issue.

Can we ALWAYS rely that if one of the objects in an either or answer like this is not possible that the answer choice is incorrect?

Studying for the LSAT / Preptest 11, Section 4, #12 LR

I am paraphrasing here...

A survey shows that people who do x have y whereas people who do not do x do not have y.  This means that x causes y.  However it may be that y causes x.

In countering the original conclusion the reasoning above uses which of the following techniques?

D. providing an alternative hypothesis to explain the data on which the original conclusion was based

E. describing a flaw in the reasoning on which the original conclusion was based

I can see that D is a valid answer, but I also see E as being just as valid.  Assuming that because x and y happen simultaneously does not mean that x caused y or that y caused x.  This is a flaw in the reasoning on which the original conclusion was based, right? 

Can someone explain why choice E is definitely wrong?

Choosing the Right Law School / Records of schools from which firms hire

Is there an online, publicly accessible database that catalogs where specific firms have hired from over the last few years?

I'm curious if anyone was able to make useful deductions in the global diagram for this game aside from FJ needing to be with one adult.
