Studying for the LSAT / Re: Set up for Game #3, Feb 1993 (Prep Test 7)

I do not think there is a strong setup.  This is all I get when I look at this.  The first time, I approached the game like for was "in" and against was "out" for a grouping game, but that did not work well.

>= 2 For, >= 2 Against which means the distributions have to be one of the following:
F / A
2 / 5
3 / 4
4 / 3
5 / 2
       For / Against
       __  / C_

And the contrapositive of those two.

I do not know the schools who have accepted you already, but what will you do if you wind up with a score that would place you in a good spot for acceptance at schools you think are out of your reach now?  If you are not offered acceptance at the schools you want this year because of timing and if you are in at a school ranked #35 now, but your score winds up making you competitive for admission, maybe even scholarships, at the top 20 schools, will you matriculate at #35 when you know that you could be at #15 in a year?

The 25th, 50th, or 75th LSAT percentiles could be increased by one score.  If a school sees their 25th percentile in danger of slipping down a point and they receive a new application that would help to prevent that form happening, do you think that applicant might look more appealing than if they had a strong buffer to protect their 25th/75th percentile marks? received acceptance and a $15,000/year scholarship from Vanderbilt in August last cycle. 

Either way, I am just going through the possibilities of how an increased score could affect his chances and some of the situational variables that are out of the OP's control.  Did I post something unreasonable?

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?

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.

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.

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.
