Studying for the LSAT / Test #30 Dec. LSAT Sct. 4 Q. 6

Commissioner: Budget forecasters project a revenue shortfall of a billion dollars in the coming fiscal year.  Since there is no feasible way to increase the available funds, our only choice is to decrease expenditures.  The plan before you outlines feasible cuts that would yield savings of a billion dollars over the coming fiscal year.  We will be able to solve the problem we face, therefore, only if we adopt this plan.

The reasoning in the commissioner's argument is flawed becasue this argument:

a) relies on information that is far from certain

b) confuses being an adequate solution with being a required solution

c) inappropriately relies on the opinion of experts

d) inappropriately employs language that is vague

e) takes for granted that there is no way to increase available funds

The correct answer is b, but I chose answer choice e.  Does anyone understand why b is the better choice?

If you graduate from these schools, what kind of recognition do you get from employers in other cities on the East coast?

Does American live up to its reputation (US News) for having a good international law program, or is it just #56?

I saw that American was ranked highly for international law, but it seems like it has a low ranking for a T1 school.  How good is this school?
