YHS seems to be out of reach. Would I have a shot at CCN?

Korean (seems to be a over-represented minority group at law schools), socio-economically disadvantaged (diversity stmt for this)

Would immensely appreciate any inputs. =)

dec lsat was supposed to be released on jan 4th, but the score was released on the 23rd (with the test being administered on the 4th of dec)

and same for the june lsat - my friend checked the lsac site on the 19th day and the score was there (even though no email was sent at that point)

maybe october will only take 19 days too!

I am clearly aware of the wastefulness of the speculation.. but I truly abhor this waiting process.  :-[

Law School Applications / prep test 42, section 2, #10

In some countries, national planners have attempted to address the problems resulting from increasing urbanization by reducing migration from rural area. But some economists have suggested an alternative approach. These economists assert that planners could solve these problems effectively by trading goods or services produced by predominantly urban popoulation in order to obtain the agricultural products that were previously produced domestically

which of the following, if true, would provide the most support for the economist's assertion?

c) A scarcity of agricultural products is a central element of many problems created by urbanization
d)problems associated with migration to cities from rural areas are primarily due to trade imbalances between countries.

C is the right answer and I picked D. I am having a really hard time trying to understand why C is the right answer. I would really appreciate any help.

Studying for the LSAT / Should I study for 7 days straight?
« on: September 13, 2005, 04:38:41 AM »
With less than 3 weeks for Oct. LSAT, I am really psyched about getting out of my slavish LSAT life. Anyway, I was lucky to have a complete month off to study for this test and am studying full time. (Prep test a day followed by a intensive review, and a few hours drill on the missed Qs from 2 days before and a week before)

I have been taking wednesdays off to chill and not worry about LSAT. Nonetheless, as the days are coming along, I feel kinda guilty for taking a complete day off.. Should I just study for 7 days straight for the remaining period or keep the one day off thing..? I kinda want to use my wednesdays to review on the questions and other prep materials..

I'd appreciate any insights.

=)

IF anyone has the conversion table.. I'd immensely appreciate it~

Studying for the LSAT / LR 23 from section II, LSAT#23 - need help..
« on: September 01, 2005, 05:37:41 AM »
An independent audit found no indication of tax avoidance on the part of the firm in the firm's accounts; therefore, no such problem exists.

The questionable reasoning in the argument above is most closely paralleled by that in which one of the following?

e) an examination of the index of the book found no listing for the most prominent critic of the theory the book advocates; therefore,the book fails to refer to that critic

I understand the flaw of the reasoning in the stimulus. i also see the other answers don't have the same type of flawed reasonings. but i am having problem understanding why this is the right answer.

it seems to make sense to conclude that the book doesn't mention about the prominent author because the author's name was not listed in the index page..

help please.. =(

Studying for the LSAT / LR Question from prep test 41 - please help..
« on: August 27, 2005, 07:22:49 PM »
Renting cars from dealerships is less expensive than renting cars from national rental firms,. But to take advantage of dealership rates, tourists must determine which local dealerships offer rentals, and then pay for long taxi rides between the aiport and those dealerships. So renting from dealerships rather than national rental firms is generally more worthwhile for local residents than for tourists.

which of the following, if true, strenghthens the argument EXCEPT:

c) Travel agents generally are unable to inform tourists of which local car dealerships offer rentals

e) For local residents, taxi rides to car dealerships from their homes or work places are usually no less expensive than taxi rides to national rental firms

The answer is E and I don't understand why that would not strengthen the stimulus, would that choice still make dealerships cheaper than the national firms for the locals, thus strengthening the argument?

Thank you for the help..

Adults who work outside the home spend, on average, 100 minutes less time each week in preparing dinner than adults who do not work outside the home. But, contrary to expectation, comparisons show that the dinners eaten at home by the two groups of adults do not differ significantly with respect to nutritional value, variety of menus, or number of courses.

it's a paradox question and the answer is:

adults who work outside the home eat dinner at home 20 percent less often than do adults who do not work outside the home

i don't understand why that would resolve the paradox.. could anyone please explain? thank you.
