Law School Applications / Re: Should law schools know my GMAT score?
« on: January 11, 2005, 04:27:49 PM »
The reason I'm asking is because some of my schools did in fact ask for it (but at the time, I hadn't taken it yet.)

Temple was one them and is my first choice. So you can see why i'm sort of in a quandry.

If they asked for it, send it. Don't send it to the schools who didn't.

It is a requirement that you give them your most up to date information.

Law School Applications / Re: Who has the best chance at these schools??

Oh wow, we both want to go to the same school, what is the best school that you think we both have a shot at attending?
 I am buying a house/condo/townhome wherever we move to and she will be my paying roommate, or we may both buy it together to get approved for a higher amount.
 Is this a wise idea?

It's hard to say. I mean what if she gets into Harvard and you don't? Or vice versa. Will one of you be willing to give it up in order to live together?

Acceptances / Re: In at San Diego

How honest am I being?  I feel that is overly rude.  I'm not sure how these boards work since I am new to the community, but I fell I have gained a strong understanding over the last two months. Why in the world would, after all the help everyone has been to me answering my questions, which were at times idiotic, post a false acceptance letter? I have appreciated the resource that this board has been, and thank all posters for the information provided.  I would not post a false acceptance. 

I think everyone is tense around here because acceptances/rejections are starting to come in and everyone is being super sensitive to possible flames. Thanks for sharing your info and please don't be hindered by the posts that questioned your integrity because those that believe you value your input.

Aren't we both considered urms?
 if you are from vietnam are you considered urm?

Being Vietnamese myself, and doing some digging around, I can tell you that we are NOT considered under-represented minorities unfortunately!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Dec 2000, Section 3, #7

Well I don't know if dividing the conclusion in half really matters, but yes you can by saying that more tv coverage=more violent crime is the first conclusion and the not leaving your home part is the second but I think you are overanalyzing ;)

First off, you must extract the conclusion from this and how the speaker reached this conclusion. The conclusion is that there is a lot of crime, specifically more crime now than there was before. The reasoning is that there is more crime being shown on TV and in the news so therefore there must be more crime in Real Life.

The flaw jumps out already because how can you assume that TV is a true representation of real life. Maybe there was more crime or the same amount of crime back then but no one covered it. Maybe people care more about crime now than they did back then and that's why there is more coverage. Etc. etc.

B is out of scope. Whether crime is out of control here, there or everywhere does not affect the author's reasoning of more crime coverage=more crime in real life. If it were true that there is crime out of control outside of that city how does that say anything about there being more crime NOW than the OLD DAYS? It doesn't.

A is the answer (see my deduction above) because it points out a flaw in the argument. It gives another reason why there is more crime in the news besides there being more crime in real life. The reason being offered is that they cover violent crime more comprehensively than they did before.

Sorry that was so long. HTH.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Games -- Inferences & key constraints
« on: January 11, 2005, 11:40:29 AM »
I would never dive into a game without a setup or diagram unless I knew I couldn't figure out where to start the setup after 3 minutes, but fortunately that didn't happen to me on either the october or december (got perfect scores on both LG sections). It would be a waste of time to start in on a game without making the secondary or even tertiary deductions. It may feel like you are wasting time but you are actually saving a ton by seeing all the rules upfront and being able to cross off answers faster.
