Studying for the LSAT / Who else feels sick of doing studying for LSAT?
« on: August 01, 2005, 02:13:18 AM »
I've been studying like mad since the start of the summer, and  I think I am finally starting to burn out.  Doing TM hw and doing preptests 7 days a week is pretty much frying my brain.
I know it's crunch time right now because there's only two months left, but I'm slowly losing motivation to study.  RC never stops kicking my ass, and I have both good and bad days when it comes to LG and LR.

Is anyone else getting sick of LSAT by now??  What do you guys do to stay motivated??

Studying for the LSAT / BROKE 162 today....luck or mere coincidence?
« on: July 31, 2005, 12:30:56 AM »
I took a preptest #35 today and broke 162.  I did HORRIBLE in RC, scoring 13/26
but i did well on the LR 45/52 and LG 19/23.

I ended up getting 162 on the exam, and this is my first exam over 160.
Yet, I don't totally feel satisfied because I did so horribly on my RC and since 2-3 questions from LR was from my previous TM homework.

I keep thinking whether I've improved or it's merely cause I know couple of questions here and there which speeds up my time.

Does anyone else feel frustrated when they see questions pop up on timed exams from your TM questions?

Studying for the LSAT / contrapositive
« on: July 27, 2005, 08:01:28 PM »
If B does not occur then either h or i but not both occur.

What would be the contrapositive of this? ???

Studying for the LSAT / Should I be concerned??
« on: July 27, 2005, 05:19:00 AM »
I took an old preptest timed today just to see where I was at, and I found more inconsistency in my LR.  I scored 21 and 17 on both LR section which is  2-3points lower than how I normally score on average.  However, I scored 19/24 on my LG which is my best score on a LG so far.  I noticed that that LG was a lot easier on this test. 

Could it be the fact that I did worse on the LR not because i'm inconsistent, but merely cause the LR sections were harder due to the easier games??  I haven't done the RC passage yet, so I'm not sure the difficulty of that yet. 

Any suggestions?

I have about 3.63-3.7 GPA, and I'm guessing that I'll score inbetween 155-160. 
I'm a Canadian citizen so I have no idea how the tier system works at the states.
Can someone tell me if I have a decent shot at a second tier LS with those numbers??
I'm not even sure which LS are second tier...
As well, would I have a great potential of securing a decent job even if I attend second tier LS?? 
Thanks

Studying for the LSAT / Frustrating...My LR inconsistency
« on: July 26, 2005, 04:33:15 PM »
For couple of weeks, I've felt like that my LR was getting more consistent..I was getting about 43-44/50 correct...
But today I hit 40/50 on an older LSAT preptest and even though I did well on the preptest before that, I had only done well because my guesses happened to be the right answer.  This is so frustrating because there are around 1-2 questions on each LR section that I've dealt with before over the course of my prep, and I know that October test will give me no such freebie. 

Does anyone else have such inconsistency with their LR??  And how would you go about it??  ARGGGG!!!

Studying for the LSAT / Preptest #10 LR Q
« on: July 26, 2005, 02:40:54 AM »
In rejecting the plan proposed by parliament to reform the electoral process, the president clearly acted in the best interests of the nation.  Anyone who thinks otherwise should remember that the president made this decision knowing it would be met with fierce oposition at home and widespread disapproval abroad.  All citizens who place the nation's well-being above narrow partisan interests will applaud this courageous action.

The reasoning in the editorial is in error because

a.) it confuses a quality that is merely desirable in a political leader with a quality that is essential to effective political decsion making.

b.) it fails to distinguish between evidenc concerning the courage required to make a certain decision and evidence concerning the wisdom of making that decision.

I picked B and it was right.  However, I thought a was also a worthy correct answer.
Can someone tell me what was wrong with the choice A??

General Off-Topic Board / MAILING HELP! URGENT!
« on: July 25, 2005, 06:22:35 PM »
This has nothing to do whatsoever with law, but I just had a quick question.

I purchased something from ebay and it's being sent to my sister's apt at Arizona.  The package is  is being sent under my name, but the problem is that my name isn't under the mailing list.
However, the package is under the same last name as my sister, so I was wondering if they would still place it in the mail box, or just send the package back to the return address.
I'm from Canada, and I'm really unfamiliar with all this, so I was hoping someone could help.

The package is sent by USPS Priority.

Studying for the LSAT / Can I ask RC questions over the TM hotline?
« on: July 22, 2005, 02:06:35 PM »
I get quite a lot wrong on the RC section, but i wasn't sure if i could ask over the hotline..
since i would think that the person helping me out would need to read the whole RC passage in order to do so.  Is that possible? ???

Minority Topics / Do Black People hate Koreans??
« on: July 19, 2005, 06:15:34 PM »
Is it just an assumption or do black people IN GENERAL hate koreans?? 
I ask this because I remember that there was a LA riot when Rodney King was beaten by the White police, and the Black people attacked all the korean grocery markets and destroyed everything.  My parents always told me that it was indeed initiated by Koreans since Koreans made majority of their money off of African-Americans, yet still showed no respect and acted as if they were the upper class compared to the Blacks.

I also remember when Ice Cube made a rap song dissing Koreans, and some other notable hating words by others about Koreans.  Is this true?? 

I'm not trying to start s**t, I'm just really really curious since this doesn't seem to be the case in Canada.(I'm korean btw)
