Studying for the LSAT / Re: Post Mortem Args Master list
« on: February 04, 2006, 10:17:30 PM »
I'm pretty sure that 13 isn't what it says it is.  I think it was something to do with confusing a desirable general state with a particular means of attaining it or something like that.

It was worder like this: It is a premise for the claim the hot water in the tank losses oxygen, or similar to this... It was choice C as I remember. Do you agree? Another option that I considered was: it is a premise for the argument's main conclusion... but maybe I'm just hallucinating this answer

yes.. I remember that this answer was towards the end of the list.  I put down that it was a premise for the conclusion which is supported by additional information?  I think it was C or D.  I think I put D... but I was debating C.

Anyone?
lack of oxygen -> unsuitable cooking water, sitting in a hot water heater -> lack of oxygen
I was able to combine them most successfully as sitting in a hot water heater -> lack of oxygen -> unsuitable cooking water

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Horrible Proctor At Oakland University, MI

I hated them.  I only finished two of them, the first and fourth.  I should have given up on the first when I realized how deep I got myself in, but I persisted and got at least one of them wrong as a result.  I think I got all of the fourth one though.  I got one question from the other two games right by just comparing the list of rules with the options, and chose D for the rest of them.  The reading comprehension wasn't so hot with that damn groupthink one.  Had I bothered to look and seen it had 8 questions, I'd have done that one first.

I agree.  We had only 20 students in our classroom and the other auditorium only had like 15.  I don't see why they couldn't have added more people to the auditoriums or used the ones in O'Dowd or Hannah hall.  God knows there's enough to go around.

Were you in 156 NFH?  That's where I was and I didn't notice anything like that.  I mean they were a bit on the strict side, but I never got whacked with a coat or anything.  Then again, I think what we were in could be considered an audotorium.  Sorry you had a bad experience.  My bad experience wasnt' with the proctors.  It was with the test.

BTW, you can report them to LSAC and you may get to retake the LSAT free of charge or get a refund.  If you really think they caused you to do badly, cancelling the scores might not be a bad idea.

Removed last post.  I misread the post and thought you meant you were trying to get into a top 25 (i.e. Chapman is a top 25)  After checking on that, I realized that's not what you meant.  As a URM, you stand a decent chance at Chapman given that their 25/75 is 154-158.  If you think you can squeak out a 154, you'd have a damn good chance.  Now it all comes down to how many times do you want to keep trying and do you really think you can do better next time?

Hey, what about Golden Gate, Thomas Jefferson, or Western State?  You could even throw a Hail Mary to Southwestern if you get a 153.

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.

I never count on the scale for an LSAT.  I'll just take my punishment and start studying for the MCAT.  After all, everyone wants a doctor that couldn't even get into law school.

I on the other hand am kicking myself in the ass for not taking the December LSAT.  When I took the practice, I scored a 167.  On this test, I'll be lucky if I get a 157.

I'm downing a few glasses of Fat Bastard Merlot as I type.
