Studying for the LSAT / Re: Perplexing LR question?
« on: January 11, 2005, 02:27:57 AM »
C would be my pick just at first glance, but I can see why you'd be confused. They like to turn it around on what I call binary situations. There was one LR problem regarding parking and ug/faculty or something that had this similar logic issue. Anyway, basically something can either be turned down or approved, there is no middleway. So whether something affects the likelihood (likelihood DOES NOT EQUAL more likely, it could also mean less likely) of something being approved or turned down means the same thing. It doesn't say whether the effect is increasing the chances or decreasing the chances. In this situation, the supervisor is assuming that it would decrease the chances of being turned down because all the other ones previous were turned down. HTH.

Law School Applications / Re: grammer question- need help quick!

How does this sound?
When I accepted the position I truly had no idea what demands, time requirements, and difficulties would lie ahead of me.

Maybe I don't use that term very often and that's why it sounds awkward. I would have said "When I accepted the position, I had no idea what demands, time requirements and difficulties would be in store for me." But I am no writer, so maybe someone else can help here.

My vote is for "lay" :) BTW, it is grammAr, just in case you use that in your p.s. or somewhere else on your app you might want it spelled right (not saying it to be snarky!).

The advisor at my school told me that I should not apply to any school unless they are in the 4th tier because of my "low LSAT score combined with a not so great GPA". She also said I would be throwing away my $ if I applied to any school in the top 100. Well, so much shw knows- I've been accepted to a tier 1 and a tier 2 school.

Low LSAT and not so great GPA? LOL. Glad you didn't listen!

Starresky, thanks for the encouragement. i'm prepared today to even take the was never about me being unprepared i was just really messed up that day and have included an addendum stating that. i'm pretty sure i'll do extremely well in february.

Yeah I was the same way. However, you probably shouldn't have listened to your parents. You know they average scores right?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Test #30 Dec. LSAT Sct. 4 Q. 6
« on: January 10, 2005, 11:51:06 PM »
Well I picked B as soon as I read it because this is a common argument flaw, assuming that since something is sufficient it is the ONLY sufficient solution. E is wrong because you are trying to argue against a premise. In the LSAT if the speaker STATES something as FACT you must take it as so. You are trying to find the problem in their REASONING, not in their premises.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Suggestions?

Damn-With that high of a GPA, I'd shoot higher and look at G-town, Vandy, and give UVA a shot.

Ummm s/he has less than a 10 percent shot according to chiashu (which tends to overinflate for split situations such as his/hers) at UVA and Georgetown. 11/171 of her/his ranking was accepted to UVA last year and 10/181 were accepted at Vanderbilt. With the higher standards this year I would say it would be a real reach for all three of those. I'm not saying s/he shouldn't try but I think you have a distorted view of just how much GPA counts.

There is no such thing as a no name UG.  You get out of any school what you put in.

Umm, I think you missed his point. Anyway, good advice. Unfortunately even rank won't help me ;)

Law School Applications / Re: LSAC Reports
« on: January 10, 2005, 11:04:02 PM »
Does LSAC charge you a report fee if they have to send a late arriving LOR to a school after they have requested your report?

They charge you one time per report. If any updates are necessary they are not going to charge you again. At least in my experience.
