Studying for the LSAT / Re: Post Mortem Args Master list

Again where does that leave us, because I did not hesitate to pick my answer.  What is your recollection of the stimulus as far as you can remember?

As far as I can remember, the government had come up with some plan to get rid of the rodent problem.  After the plan was implemented, there was a 90% decrease in the rodent population.  Therefore, the government's plan worked.  It was something along those lines, then the question was a weaken or strengthen EXCEPT question.

I'm 99% sure the stimulus included the cold winters and how the rodents couldn't survive it.  It seems like the answer choice some of you chose is a repeat of the stimulus.
Well, I'm 99% sure that it was one of the answer choices and not one of the stimuli, so where does that leave us.  I know because I remember selecting that answer and I didn't even think twice before selecting it because it appeared obvious to me.

I got seedlings not growing.  I struggled with that one for a bit, but felt confident when I did answer it.

Yes, I do remember selecting an answer choice about velocity, but I have no memory of the question.

In the RC hubble's law passage, I remember something about velocity and distance being directly proportional.  I remember there being "velocity" in the answer choice, but it seems like people don't remember it.  Was "velocity" part of the answer choice?

Also, in the groupthink passage, I think I put down "conformity group being more confrontational to other groups" or something to that effect.

Does it ring any bell to you guys?

I'm thinking it had to do with something directly stated in the article, and the answer was basically a restatement of Hubbel's Law that the velocity of the object moving away was directly proportional to the distance the object was from the observer.

Example of what not to write:
"Dear Adcomm member:
The LSAT sucks and is a horrible predictor of how well I'll do in law school.  I think you should tell LSAC to shove it where the sun doesn't shine and just totally ignore the score.  Please let me in!"

I don't know if I'm posting correctly because this is my first one, but i have been a "lurker" for quite some time, and might have some valuable insight for this thread. When I take LR sections, I always skip parellel reasoning questions and then go back to them at the end because of they are usually long and easy.  I didn't have any experimental LR sections yesterday, but i distinctly remember at least 3 parellel reasoning questions, and i'm almost positive that there were 4 - 2 per LR section.  I don't know if the master list includes them, but that might trigger someone to remember it. Also, I'm too lazy to see if this is on the master list, but there was definetely a question about some sort of rodent and how to get rid of it.  It had something to do with the fact that in 199x there was an extremely cold winter or something. I remember because i started laughing when i read it out loud during the test for some reason.

Rodent question rings a bell...

It was on there, but I don't know if it was experimental or not because I had the experimental LR section.  The answer was either a strengthen EXCEPT or a weaken and it did have something to do with there was an unusually cold winter and the rodents normally wouldn't survive the cold weather.

I also loved that.  It got quite a few snickers from people in the room because of the way she said it, "And by the way, the writing sample must be in ENGLISH."  I wanted so badly to reply, "But I want to write it in Japanese!".  But I resisted the urge to do so.

I would try to help but everything from this morning is a blur. After the test I drove home, incoherently rambled at my roomate about the test while he stared at me like I was an idiot, then I left and drove around for about an hour with music blasting, then finally made it back to my apartment somehow for a long nap. Now I have a headache and I feel like LSAC raped me.

Any contribution that I give will probably not help much.

I hope they at least got you drunk first.  As for me, after the test, I had lunch with an extremely beautiful and sweet girl, who will never be my girlfriend because I'm not Jewish.  To make it worse, the ONLY reason she won't be my girlfriend is because I'm not Jewish.  So, today, I have had to deal with two things that are just out of my reach, law school and a woman who can be described only as a goddess.

Convert. Just because we don't actively proselityze (sp? that one always gets me) it doesn't mean we don't want you. We like playing hard to get.

There's one thing, and really only one thing that I won't do for anyone, and that includes a woman I love, and that's convert to another religion.  I may not be a big time Bible thumping Christian, but I know there's a line that you just don't cross and for me, that's it.  If she had asked me for ANYTHING else, I'd have done it, but that's just one thing I can't do.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Anyone cancelling their score?
« on: February 05, 2006, 12:03:46 PM »
My practice scores ranged between 156 and 167, with 167 being an extreme outlier.  More commonly they ranged between 156 and 161.
Another thing that's keeping me from cancelling is my GPA of around a 3.9.  Even with a slightly lower LSAT score, as long as its within the 25/75 I still stand a good chance at being admitted to the schools I applied to.  I'm pretty much assured of U of D.

I hope it will be like October's scale or like June's would have been if it had been scored at 100 points.
