That's so weird! Last semester I had to watch this movie for a film class and I loved it. I didn't think anyone else saw it.  Weird.

Great movie. Classic Film Noir... I love noir films. As if my name doesnt give that one away.

Recommendations / Re: HELP

Well, I am relying heavily on one letter or recommendation to get me in to a good school. A letter from Howard Dean. But... I dont know how heavily it will weight because he doesnt know me that well. I would say a professor from your UG school who knows you well and can write a detailed letter about you is aluable in comparison to a letter from a famous person who just sort of knows you. Hit them with a combo move!

Law School Applications / Re: U of Wisconsin Law

Madison is an awesome town. Very progressive and very liberal. I see no reason why a minority would have a problem fitting in there. I worked there for a few weeks on the Dean campaign trail and loved it. Even the frat guys at the clubs are cool. I will for sure be applying there.

Ok

Is Madison a loud area?

Well, it has a pretty rocking nightlife and downtown area but it is not that loud per say. The city is spread out over a large area.

Well if you are trying to get in with early enrollment for Fall '05 you couldnt retake the test in time. But if you want to try for regular enrollment you might still be able to re-take the exam and stand a decent chance. Check these links out, they compare you percentile chances at admittance with both number combos:

It add's a 23% chance for Boston college. I dunno man... good luck.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Preptest 39 - section 5 - question 16
« on: July 25, 2004, 10:53:32 PM »
Please check my approach to the following questions, I know I'm doing some stuff wrong...

Section 5:

16.
Cezanne's art inspired the next generation of artists, twentieth-century modernist creators of abstract art. While most experts rank Cezanne as an early modernist, a small few reject this idea. Francoise Cachin, for example, bluntly states that such an ascription is "overplayed" and says that Cezanne's work is "too often observed from a modern point of view."

Which one of the following statements is most strongly supported by the information above?
(A) Cezanne's work is highly controversial  [overstates]
(B) Cezanne was an early creator of abstract art [confuses early modernist w/ abstract art creator]
(C) Cezanne's work helped to develop modernism [correct answer - I don't get it, what about Francoise Cachin who says such an ascription is "overplayed"]
(D) Modern art owes less to Cezanne than many experts believe [I chose this answer - why is this wrong?](E) Cezannes work tens to be misinterpreted as modernist [I didn't even read this far down, I thought I found my answer and moved on. "Misinterpreted as modernist" doesn't seem to equal "overplayed"]

D is wrong because it is stated that modern art does indeed owe alot to Cezannes. You may chose this if you take the "small fews" opinion as fact. Reading this question and looking at that choice I re-read the first sentence and it negates this option in my opinion. I know my explanation is kind of jumbled and confusing... hope it may help at some level. Now my brain hurts, lol.

Law School Applications / Re: How does a W affect the LSDAS GPA?
« on: July 25, 2004, 08:51:21 PM »
actually i ended up calling the LSAC people.  I asked them what happens with the W. they said that it depends on how your school handles it... that's how they handle it. so the lady checked my school and they omitted it. so my LSDAS GPA will not count my W. *YAY*!!!! <throws confeti>  ;D :D :)

I owe you a beer because you just stopped the freaking out process on my part. At my school you can drop a class up to 2/3 of the way through a semester with a W and it counts as nothing... nadda... just a class you withdrew from. I have many. But for you, I owe you brew.
