Incoming 1Ls / Re: What are cool areas to live in Brooklyn?

Park Slope is cool, not too long a trip to lower manhattan. Starting to get pricier but you can still find a decent deal on 2 or 3 bedrooms with roommates.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: SQUIDS- .001
« on: February 15, 2005, 07:20:00 AM »
I believe the passage DID say that SQUIDs were capable of measuring the energy required to move an electron .001, not that it could actually move it. I think that's why I didn't choose the .001 answer...before everyone started discussing this here I was 100% sure I was right on this. Now I can't remember what was on the actual test and what people have been saying in this thread.

Thanks Tealight. Good luck to you too. I just transmitted my app and scheduled an interview since I'm in the Chicago area already. My friends here are all excited...I didn't apply to any Chicago schools until tonight!

Yeah, it's sort of a silly question because I'm just going to do it anyway. I just wonder if anyone has any firsthand experience with turning in applications late. Every school's site says turning them in close to the deadline is not advisable, and common knowledge sort of implies that it's pointless...but I wonder what other people think the real odds are this late in the game.

It can vary pretty dramatically from year to year, though. Last year was the most competitive cycle ever.

Choosing the Right Law School / Apps at the deadline--any thoughts?

I'd like to solicit some opinion on this, if I could. I've already applied to 8 schools, all in my sig below. But I just retook the LSAT on Saturday and I'm guesstimating my new score will be between 166 - 170, depending on how many guesses I end up getting right and the scale's difficulty.

In any case, I thought I might apply to some of the school's that will either look at my higher score only, or would be good with the average from 158. Thinking about ripping out apps to Northwestern, BU, BC, maybe Georgetown though I know that's especially a long shot. This being so close to the deadline, I know I'm obviously at a disadvantage--but do you think the slim chance it might pay off is viable enough that I should just do it?

I believe in the actual passage it said "they could measure the energy it would take to move an electron approximately .01 percent." It didn't say that they actually did it and it didn't say that they moved anything exactly .01 percent either. That's why I thought the safer inference was before 19XX they didn't have the technology to do it.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: CHIASHU= CHIASHIT

One thing to keep in mind with LSAC's grid is that it does combine acceptances for PT and FT in the grid with no delineation between who was accepted for what program. Still useful--but if you're in the lower part of a school's number set you might want to be wary of the admission statistics.

I wasn't sure if it was the pleasure choice or the choice about frightening experiences composing only a very small amount of total experiences. It was kind of misleading because the stimulus said "frightening experiences can be recalled better than non-frightening experiences" only all people can definitely clearly recall experiences that weren't frightening as well.

I think I picked the one I'm talking about, but I think the pleasure choice is correct. Can't remember.

Apparently lsattaker and I think alike.
