Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSAT TUTOR NYC

Thanks for the replies.  I was able to find 2.  I also found someone looking for an egg donor with a minmum SAT score of 1500.

Does anyone happen to have the link to craigs list?  I tried a google search but all that comes up are listings to apartment classifieds.  Is there a seperate section for law students etc?

How would the answer choice be diagrammed:

Anyone who works two or more jobs is unable to find a balance between professional and personal life.  Maggie has only one job, so she can find balance between her professional and personal life.

Work 2 or more jobs --> Not able to balance P and P life.
Maggie works 1 job --> Able to balance P and P.

This does not match the flaw as diagrammed in the stimulus.

Can someone tell me if this is diagrammed correctly:

Anyone who fails to answer a patient's questions cannot be a competent physician.  That is why I feel confident about my physician's competence: she carefully answers every one of my questions, no matter how trivial.

Not CP --> Not APQ

I originally had the first premise reveresed (Not APQ --> Not CP).  Then when I answered the question wrong I assumed that cannot has the same effect as not in a statement.  Is this correct?

I am in the same situation.  I am very far behind on the homework.  Since LR is my weakest section by far I have been focusing exclusively on this section.  Hopefully, I will be caught up by next week as well.

Actually, what I am specifically looking for is an explanation of some and most statements.

Studying for the LSAT / Transitive Property and LRB
« on: August 11, 2005, 05:35:56 PM »
Does anyone happen to know if the LRB covers the transitive property?  If so what chapter is it in?  I cannot seem to find it.  Also, are there any other sources available that cover this?

I feel the exact same way.  In fact, I am so far behind in the homework that it would be virtually impossible for me to catch up before October.  So I keep working at my own pace.  I go through each lesson and apply the concepts and do not move on to the next lesson until I feel that I fully grasped the concepts of the previous lessons.

Actually, some courts have held that banning pit bull ownership is in fact a violation of one's constitutional right.  Courts have held that such legislation is a violation of the 14th Amendment's Due Process Clause.

Big Tex, placing your argument into context, what you are essentially saying is that curtailing the rights of the minority to protect the majority is acceptable.  Therefore, airports across the nation searching every person of middle eastern descent before boarding an airplane is an acceptable practice. When the United States detained Japanese during WWII that was acceptable as well.  It really does not matter that the majority of pit bull owners are responsible they must relinquish their rights for the safety of the majority and such legislation is justified.  So if that is the case why were so many people up in arms when middle easterners were being searched or Japanese being detained?  The government was only protecting the rights and safety of the majority.

There are big holes in "responsible."  Owners believe if they love and feed the dog they are responsible owners. If the majority of attacks come from un-neutered dogs then the responsible owner would have the dog fixed.  If I live in fear because an agressive dog lives in my neighborhood then my pursuit of happiness by taking a walk has been infringed upon.  An owner may see having the dog for protection as his pursuit of happiness.  What exactly is a responsible owner?  Should the breeder be held at all responsible?  Have you ever seen the temperament of an inbred dog?  What exactly happens when a b!tch mounts her own pup?  Have you ever seen a crazed Cocker Spaniel?  I dated someone for almost three months before I knew there was a dog in the backyard.  Was that person responsible? Should there come a time when we put the interests of people before animals?  Every summer when my daughter puts on shorts I am reminded by the 1 inch hole in her leg just what a puppy in police dog training can playfully do.  She thought that if she caught the ball and threw it the dog would fetch not gouge a hole in her leg.  The world also has responsible gun owners that shoot up our neighborhoods everyday.  And we all know of the great strides that have been taken determining exactly what is a responsible gun owner.  I don't think we have even cracked the conundrum of what is a responsible who knows how much booze he can handle before he gets behind the wheel of his vehicle.


I understand what you are saying.  I used to work in the field and I have seen just about everything you can imagine.  I use to watch animal cops every night now I just want to throw up.  As far as unneutered dogs, you are absolutely correct, they are more agressive.  More importantly, spend a month in an animal shelter and witnesses first hand the results of not spaying or neutering your pet.

By the way, everytime I look in the mirror I am reminded of the time a dog grabbed me by the face due to the 3 inch scar I have down my cheek and the puncture holes above my eye.
