Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSAC Biased
« on: July 07, 2005, 06:12:53 PM »

i undertand what your saying. but the point of the lsat for the application procces is to have an objective test that compares you to other applicants. so, when having two separte tests, i think they compromise on the "objectivity" of the test.

Then propose a reasonable better way for them to do it. I'm sure they'd love to know.

first of all, the answer grid helps alot. it allows you to see what you messed up on. but your missing the point. im talking about everybody taking the same exam, equal playing field

How much does it really help? What are the odds of you remembering the questions or the order they came in, no less your answer choice? *&^%, the June LSAT was massively discussed on here, but I doubt most them remembered anything other than that one question that ended up getting dismissed, and that's just because it was so damn confusing.
Furthermore, no, you are missing the point. They can't both accomdate you and provide the same exam, since you would then have a leg up chance to get the answers (and don't act like people wouldn't). It is NOT feasible to force everyone to take an exam on Monday with you. We have lives. Saturday is the only convenient time.

Research shows that this has not always been the case, as in 2000, with a disclosed monday test date (though apparently it was not considered an observer date, but was the regular date, nonetheless an observer would obviously enroll in it):

Furthermore, I assure you there is a reason behind this and it is not anti-semetic. It may, perhaps, be due to reoccuring future test questions (though of course I don't work for LSAC and can't say for sure).

Moreover, it just doesn't constitute anti-semitism. That answer grid does little to nothing to help you. It would be anti-semitic if they chose not to offer a sabbath observer test at all.

Bi-sexual makes you fun at a party, but I don't think a URM :)

I dunno. I always thought it was some sort of a factor since LSAC asks you about it. Meh. I don't really care. I don't think I needed it to get in where I wanted to. :P

My stats got me a full ride at Seton Hall, and I'm only mediocre (tho I guess I was quasi URM because I'm bisexual, I don't think that would make a huge difference though). I am a Jersey resident, don't know if that really made a difference.

There's no renters insurance in my case, and a $250 refundable security deposit.  


I don't think that's quite what was meant. Renter's insurance isn't from the person you rent from. It's something you go to an insurance company and seek yourself. It's fairly inexpensive as well, I recommend seeing if your car insurance company does it. In my case, getting renters insurance for $25k ended up being only 15 dollars a year extra because of the discount we got for having multiple policies.

I'll second including renter's insurance- it's probably one of the most important things to get. The last thing you need is a fire to wipe your place out in the middle of 1L and be screwed for replacing it!

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: My first semester schedule

You people are so lucky! Temple gives us our schedules Aug 22nd, the day before class starts. -_-

If you go to Rutgers-Camden, you don't have to live in Camden. There are very nice towns right nearby. I've heard that the law campus itself is pretty safe.

Anywhere along the new River Line light rail, in fact. I know all the apartment complexes in the area as I just moved into one in Bordentown which is just a bit north, so if anyone is looking and needs help, send me a message!
