Law School Applications / Re: J.D. Worthless if not practicing law?

Stictly speaking, you don't "need" any degree to be financially successful (didn't Bill Gates prove this?)

But just because it's possible doesn't make it a good f-in idea!


Chris Rock said it best: 

"Yeah you could DO it without a man, but that don't mean its to be done. S**t you could drive a car with your feet if ya want to, that don't make if a good f***in' idea!" --Chris Rock - on woman who say they don't need a man to help them raise their child

Sometimes I wonder how so many people can have so much trouble with the logical reasoning portion of the lsat.. and then sometimes it's patently obvious.

I wanna go to a law school that's "part of a campus" but if georgetown or northwestern take me, I'll deal with it ;)

Question: If you already have strong feelings about what your yet-unborn children should do, why don't you do these things yourself?
We're sacrificing now so our kids won't have to

Studying for the LSAT / Re: RC - Summarize paragraphs?
« on: November 22, 2004, 04:57:10 PM »
RC is my worst, too

I seem to always get 19 correct, no matter how many questions are in the section.. and the arts/humanities passages are my achilles heel

My princeton review teacher tries to get us to do the topic summaries you're talking about

It's a 1-2 sentence paraphrase of what the author is trying to get across to you in each paragraph (obviously it needs to be longer for longer paragraphs)

At first it is extremely hard and time consuming, but if you spend large amounts of time practicing doing these, then you will get a lot faster at it

Also the strategy for doing RC is supposed to be to read the questions, then read the passage extremely quickly (1-2 minutes max, but make sure you're aware of what you're reading, and the structure of the passage)

Then go and do all the specific questions, referring back to the passage for each one

Then do the general questions (after you've done the specifics you've read and re-read parts of the passage a couple times so you you should be able to answer these)

Then do the complex ones (strengthen, weaken, etc)


That's the strategy anyway....

Personally it takes me about 5 minutes to read the passage, and then another 5-6 to answer the questions.. so I only really have time to do 3 passages :(

One of my PR teachers said it's really too late in the game to start changing how I read the passage, as that will likely drop my score even further (which it has), so I should just practice practice practice


Sigh..... :(
