Aside from the 1L courses, what courses should all law students graduate with, regardless of what type of law they go into?  What do the large law firms like to see?

Anyone have it?


Studying for the LSAT / 2 LR Questions

Someone please help:

The economy is doing badly.  First, the real estate slump has been with us for some time.  Second, car sales are at their lowest in ears.  Of course, had either one or the other phenomenon failed to occur, this would be consistent with the economy as a whole being healthy.  But, their occurrence together makes it quite probable that my conclusion is correct.

Which one of he following inferences is most strongly supported by the information above?

A)  If car sales are at their lowest in years, then it is likely that the economy is doing badly.

B)  If the economy is doing badly, then either the real estate market or the sales market is not healthy.

C)  If the real estate market is healthy, then it is likely that the economy as a whole is healthy.

D)  If the economy is in a healthy state, then it is unlikely that the real estate and car sales markets are both in a slump.

E)  The bad condition of the economy implies that both the real estate and the car sales markets are doing badly.

I diagram this as follows:

Conclusion:  The economy is doing badly
~Real Estate Slump or ~Car Sales Lowest ---> Economy Healthy
~Economy Healthy ---> Real Estate Slump and Car Sales Lowest

BUT, then I also diagram the final sentence as:
Real Estate Slump and Car Sales Lowest ---> ~Economy Healthy
Economy Healthy ---> ~Real Estate Slump or Car Sales Lowest

Am I diagramming this properly?  Based on this, C), D), and E) are all fine.  I'm not sure what the answer is as I left the key at home, but it's from October 2004.

Studying for the LSAT / How to be as annoying as possible during the LSAT

1.  Read the man's voice of a "Point At Issue" question out loud as if you're He-Man; read the woman's voice out loud as if you're a Smurf.  If both speakers are of the same sex, pinch your nose while speaking out loud for the second speaker.

2.  Perform your process of elimination out loud...  Say things like, "No!  That doesn't relate to his conclusion!"

3.  At the beginning of Section 2, exclaim, "What?  2 Experimental Sections!"

Most antidepressant drugs cause weight gain.  While dieting can help reduce the amount of weight gained while taking such antidepressants, some weight gain is unlikely to be preventable.

The information above most strongly supports which one of the following:

C)  At least some patients taking antidepressant drugs gain weight as a result of taking them.

It's the "unlikely" that's throwing me off...  Seems to me it means that there's a possility of not gaining weight and that the answer is, therefore, not stong enough for a "Must Be True".

Any input?

I know it says "wait 3 days", but has anyone cancelled and seen proof of it sooner?  Also, 9 days is Monday.  Can we still cancel (by fax) on Monday?

Sorry for the question, but I haven't really found an adequate response to this.  Ideally, I'd use a pen, but I think they're out, so I guess my only option is a finely-tipped highlighter.  Anyone know?

Studying for the LSAT / Oct 2004, 4th Game (Parking Spots, $10, $12, $15)

Under the time constraints of the exam, did anyone produce a really good diagram for this game?  I made the inference regarding potential prices, and potential distribution, but my overall diagram was pretty vague.  Y went 4th, and 3 had to cost more than 5.  I could've made templates but there seemed to be too many possibilities.

For creating a static diagram?  Or do we have to go the highlighter route?
