Where should I go next fall? / CUNY
« on: November 17, 2004, 02:46:55 AM »
I have pretty crappy grades and even crappier LSAT 2.8/ and a projected 157 LSAT. How is CUNY compared to some of the other TTT's out there. I know their BAR passage rates are low and so is employment outlook but how about that $8,000 tuition, sounds pretty good for 8,000.

Studying for the LSAT / can you help diagram this

The companies that are the prime purchasers of computer software will not buy a software package if the costs of training staff to use it are high, and we know that it is expensive to teach people a software package that demands the memorization of unfamiliar commands. As a result, to be successful, commercial computer software cannot require users to memorize unfamiliar commands.

The conclusion above follows logically if which one of the following is assumed?

The answer is C) Commercial computer software will not be successful unless prime purchasers buy it.

Studying for the LSAT / Need more LR help
« on: November 15, 2004, 09:17:59 PM »
Investment Banker: Democracies require free-market capitalist economies, because a more controlled economy is incompatible with complete democracy. But history shows that repressive measures against capitalistic developments are required during the transition from a totalitarian regime to a democracy. Thus, people who bemoan the seemingly anticapitalistic measures certain governments are currently taking are being hasty.

Which one of the following is an assumption required by the investment banker's argument?

A) No current government has reached as complete a state of democracy as it is possible for a government to reach.

B) The more democratic a country is, the less regulated its economy must be.

I am really having trouble with assumptions questions, I could use any advice you have.


C) The need for economic stability makes the existence of partially democratic governments more probable than the existence of fully democratic governments.

D) A free-market economy is incompatible with a nondemocratic regime.

E) The nations whose anticapitalistic measures the people in question bemoan had totalitarian regimes in the past.

Studying for the LSAT / LR help
« on: November 15, 2004, 08:09:32 PM »
Can anyone help with this LR question, it is from the June 03 LSAT Section 3 (2nd LR)

People who have doctorates in the liberal arts are interested in improving their intellects. Companies, however, rarely hire people who are not concerned with the financial gain that can be obtained by hard work in the business world. As a result, companies rarely hire people who have doctorates in the liberal arts.

The conclusion of the argument follows logically if which one of the following is assumed?

A) Companies would hire people with doctorates in the liberal arts if such people were interested in the money available in the business world.

B) Some people who are interested in the liberal arts do not care about money.

C) The only people not interested in making money in the business world are people who are interested in improving their intellects.

D) People with doctorates in the liberal arts are interested in employment in the business world.

E) Only people not concerned with making money in the business world are interested in improving their intellects.

Law School Applications / SCALE program at Southwestern
« on: November 12, 2004, 04:59:59 AM »
Has anyone heard of Southwesterns SCALE (Southwestern's Approach to Legal Education) program? It is a 2 year JD program that "utilizes simulated client files and externships to develop practical lawyering skills". Does this sound like a decent program to you all? Do you think hiring firms would look down on this or actually like the fact that a 3 year program was completed in 2 years? Also, does anyone know if it is harder to get into the SCALE program or easier compared to the regular FT?


Law School Applications / Part-time apps?
« on: November 12, 2004, 03:24:02 AM »
Since this site has become the most helpful tool through my application process I thought I would call upon you all for help once again. My scores are not too great 2.81 GPA and my diags for the LSAT have been on average 160. I have stong LOR's and majors in Biology and Psychology (psych GPA is 3.92) I really messed up first few years with Bio. I also have an Education minor (minor GPA 3.88). I do not plan on working while in Law School but it seems as though I have a better shot at most schools (i.e Loyola-Chicago and Loyola in LA as well as many other schools. I was wondering if anyone has any advice on whether I should apply for part-time or not although I will not be working while at school? Do recruiters look down at the fact that I did not work as a part-timer or is that information irrelevant if my scores are good?

Help me out people, I am lost.


LSAC and LSDAS / Dec. Apps.
« on: November 10, 2004, 04:01:36 AM »
I am taking the LSAT in Dec. and I was wondering if I submit my apps now will the Adcomms look at my apps? Or will they wait until my LSAT score is released before they even begin to review my app? I do not want to send my apps too late but I also cannot afford the app fees right now. I will be getting some money on Dec. 15th so if I send all of the apps electronically through LSDAS will it be too late? Basically, do apps online take a long time to process like it does when you send in you transcripts of LOR's?
