Law School Admissions / Re: june lsat for $$ and waitlist help?
« on: January 15, 2008, 08:20:31 AM »
Some people receive offers for admission as late as August.  If you increase your score and a spot opens up at the school you want that late in the process, your score may have bumped you to the top of the list. 

Late in the summer, however, you may have a lot of schools that already know where their 25/75 percentiles are going to land so one student may not make much of a difference.  You may also have some schools that will be able to increase their LSAT percentiles with just one or two students above either and your new score may make you highly desirable to the school.  LSN has people with decisions in June/July with nice scholarships.

As far as the people that dropped or failed. I think the majority realized this was not like the movies and that they did not want to me a lawyer. With the amount of time that is required, you need to be sure about it before you decide to stick with it.

I know you said you do not have much experience with the job prospects from MU, but do you think the expectations of your classmates for job prospects after graduation are realistic?   

You mentioned help from the administration with a summer job, do you have options lined up for the summer?

823
Do you know what the requirements are for maintaining scholarships?

I see that about 10% of the class dropped/failed last year, that does seem high.  Do you think those that dropped were unprepared, immature, or had something else that kept them from making the cut?

ASW = admitted students week, which is a familiarization/recruiting device where admitted students can visit the campus.  I have not received anything regarding this from MU, I assumed they did not have one.

Hey Slice, I live in Columbia currently and am looking at MU. 

I sat in on one of Professor Lambert's contracts classes a few months ago and really enjoyed his interaction with the class.  His is the only course I have visited so I was wondering how do other courses/professors compare?

Does everyone take exams on computer there?  I was reading the school's website and glossed over something about having to bring external backup battery power because there are not enough power outlets for people.  I know that this was mentioned in my tour of the school, but has this proven to be an issue for anyone that you know?

What is your take on the administration after the semester started?  So far my interactions have been really good with the school, but I have heard stories of other schools where this changes after matriculation.

825
I am unfamiliar with Harvard's application deadline policies, but I do know that some schools require the application to be complete (LSDAS reports, no missing paperwork, etc.) before the deadline.

You should be able to find the information on the schools' websites.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Feelings of Uncertainty on Questions

I just scored in the 170s for the second time on a practice test this morning.  The section I thought I aced was the section with over half of my incorrect responses.

If you are planning to finance your education with loans, a home loan may affect the rate of your student loans or vice versa.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Grouping Game Conditional Reasoning Question

Do you find this technique to be usable in most grouping games?  Pure grouping games are usually the hardest for me, but I have never used chains like this. 

I am at a total loss about why you have trouble connecting multiple conditionals that have common conditions.

I don't mean this phrase towards you, but it is relevant.  "keep it simple stupid"

I do not have a problem doing it, I just never thought of doing these questions like this.  I just ran through the rules each time something changed, but this is obviously a better strategy. 

My main question was if this technique is usable in most grouping games.  The June 1996 has two grouping games that threw me for a loop and while I don't see the possibility of making chains as described in the thread you posted, graphing the possibility for each of the two constrained sets in the last game, FG and KM, instead of listing the rules separately will make things progress more quickly.

Ok,

The last game of June '96 has a lot of linking going on., the third game on that test does not.

Last game:

P <--/--> F G <--/--> H

J <--/--> K M

Note that F&G will never be with K&M since it is 3 per group.


Of course, the rules can be written out differently:

[FG] ---> P & H

[KM] ---> J


Ok, that's pretty much how I went about solving that problem the second time through.  The only difference is that I diagrammed FG -> KMPH and KM -> FGJ and then listed the possibilities for each FG|JLN KM|FHLNP X|HJLNP  With 9 variables, well 7, I lose track of who is missing and listing the possible groups seems to help.

Milli Vanilli ain't got nothin' on her lip synch skills.

lol

Those guys were funny.  Didn't one of them die or something?  I remember a VH1 show about that.

I have no idea, I just know that around the same time as that video came out there was such a huge uproar over Milli Vanilli lip synching... =)
