Studying for the LSAT / Re: Three scores
« on: October 21, 2005, 06:59:07 AM »
1)  155
2)  160
3)  166

Anyone else think it's very strange that 19 of the respondents thusfar selected an XNTJ as hi / her personality type.  These two (of the sixteen) are the lowest (or two of the lowest) reprsented groups in society-at-large.  INTJ myself here.

This deserves a bump!  I couldn't figure out the answer to this one for the life of me!


While I think it's important to stay motivated, and I am always quick to let others know about my drastic improvement to encourage others, I must say, you might not want to obssess so much about other people's scores and spend more time actual studying. I know it's tempting to spend all your time on LSD, but trust me, you'd be better off just drilling the concepts that are giving you a hard time, than creating lists like this:


I mean what I said in the nicest way and I'm not judging you here, just wanted to give you some friendly advice. And good luck to you.

Well, nothing taken personally here.  I don't spend too much time on LSD, and I don't obsess over scores.  I sit in a cube 50 to 60 hours a week writing user manuals and drafting queries to generate usage analyses, so five mins an hour on a forum is a nice break.

So, as above, it's important to know that I'm a numbers / db geek to begin with--this is just the way I look at the world, and I thought others might find it interesting.

So.. maybe something like:
This paper analyzes arguments for and against cell phones and concludes that the devices are ultimately more beneficial than costly.

Does that sound better? I'm a bit unsure of how to word it.. I didn't get much sleep.. This is what I get for putting this damn thing off until the last minute!  >:(

If you are "concluding" that cells are more beneficial than costly, you may remove the adverb "ultimately", as ultimately, it's redundant.  The phrase "This paper analyzes arguments for and against cell phones" can be made stronger.

I think it's important to remember that your thesis is "your" thesis.  There's no reason to justify it, wiggle around in it, or explain how you arrived at your thesis:  it should polemically state your conclusion.

Your first PP you define the 2-3 three supporting claims (if this is a 3 to 8 pager).  So, you could rewrite the above as--

"X, Y, and, Z show the economic, social, and professional benefits of cellular phones exceed their capital and human costs."

Maybe that helps--let me know.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Temple..experiences?
« on: June 29, 2005, 03:29:40 PM »
I went to Temple as an Undergrad--grad May 02.

I had a VERY positive experience. 

I started out at what I thought would a good fit for me--Connecticut College.  Relatively prestigious...yeah right.  Not a good fit--felt like I was the poorest kid there, and everyone on campus seemed to be driving a saab or a volvo.

After I let the wind out of my sails (or, took three years off to work full-time and get get my head straight), I went to Temple.

My classes were more difficult, my professors were more willing to give personal attention, it was SO much cheaper (in-state here).  I felt as if I'd received a first-class education.

Temple has vastly improved in the past 15 years.  My sister attended 1993 to 1996, and the positive change were just beginning to take shape.  By the time I graduated, the facilties were very good and the campus was safer--had been beautified, too.

I would NOT be concerned about crime at Temple--they've got the third largest police department in the state.  And the officers are the type that will walk / drive you to your dorm / the train.

And, if you intend to obtain employment in the Philly area, Temple has grown to be considered 2nd only to Penn State for undergard and outranks many national public schools in many graduate and professional programs.

-Abortion - Pro-choice
-Death Penalty - Vehemently against
-War in Iraq - Nonsense.  Utter nonsense.  And more keep dying every day. 
-War in General - Rarely for.
-Gun Control - For, but we need to restrict manufacture, also, if we expect to make acquiring a gun more difficult.  I'd say melt down all handguns and eliminate their manufacture.
-Legalization of drugs - Yes, with very few restrictions.  Save money on jails / prisions; spend more on rehabilitation
-Filibusters - For
environment - for, but we'd be better served spending our resources on human rights, not plant rights
taxes - more progressive, eliminate W's cut, drive up taxes for the wealthy
N.C.L.B. - utter nonsense
gay rights - for, across the board, including marriage
- Social security - for, but place the benefits on a sliding scale and no benes for those with incomes over 100K per yr
- health care - single-payer system

This thread is hilarious...
