Studying for the LSAT / hey Pancho
« on: July 02, 2005, 04:50:55 PM »
I just looked at your LSN account, are you allowed to apply to multiple schools ED?

What if you get both decisions around the same time and don't have time to withdraw from ED between decisions?

How this opening paragrpah ends up will have a pretty big influence on the course I take with the rest, so I want to sort of have it settled before I put in a lot of time honing the rest.

Studying for the LSAT / June Test takers down 9.1%
« on: July 01, 2005, 01:39:36 PM »
Don't know if this has been posted here or not.  June test takers were down 9.1% from last June (28,600-25,984).

This will probably have the largest effect on tier 2 schools, but with a change this large could certainly effect tier 1 schools admission standards as well.

total test takers are down 4% for the year.

don't know if this has been mentioned here, but June takers is down 9.1% from last year (28,600-25,984).  There are arguments to make that this will mostly effect the tier 2 schools, but I'm not really going to go into that right now.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / WUSTL's new numbers
« on: June 28, 2005, 05:17:24 PM »
Just realized WUSTL gave their latest numbers in the pamphlet they sent me. They are accurate for admitted students who have paid all their deposits (had a few other things to ask them earlier today, so I called them and asked this question while they had me on the line) as of may 25th. I don't see why they would change all that much.

Projected enrollment: 235

Applicants: 3774

25/50/75 LSAT: 162/166/167

25/50/75 GPA: 3.2/3.6/3.7

Minorities: 19%

Men/Women: 55/45

60% of the entering fall 2005 class recieved some scholarship. All WUSTL scholarships are merit based.

also, for the graduating class of 2004:

overall salary 25/75: 70K/115K

private practice 25/75: 82K/125K

Gov't and PI 25/75: 36,100/52,800

within 9 months of graduation 99% employment

62% work outside of St. Louis in 32 states and 4 foreign countries.

69% Private Practice

17% Govt & PI

7% Clerkships

7% Business

Studying for the LSAT / Allright guys, I'm out
« on: June 26, 2005, 05:00:15 PM »
It's been fun getting to meet you guys and going through the emotional roller coaster ride that was the June 05 LSAT with you.

Forever we will be linked, incoherently babbling out "SOB scales" in our sleep. 

I will probably be back mid august or so when I start sending out apps and stuff. 

Good luck to all!

feel free to e-mail me at nascjacket@gmail.com

Some people on xoxo are saying they thought it was originally 99 and the throw out left it at 98. 

That would explain that we can't remember the last LR question.

I'm still leaning towards 100->99, but now I'm doubting.

can you check the pdf equating scores to %iles and see if that has changed as well?

Studying for the LSAT / So has anybody called telescore?
« on: June 23, 2005, 10:49:32 AM »
I know that supposedly telescore goes up the same time scores are posted on your LSAC account, but I also know that you guys are way OCD.  Anybody tried telescore on the off-chance that they did things slightly differently this time?

Studying for the LSAT / Another Stone Tortoise thought
« on: June 21, 2005, 12:23:51 PM »
While in the shower (which is where I do my best thinking, too bad they don't administer a waterproof LSAT) I thought about the following possible reason for the question being pulled:

If I'm not mistaken the question asked which answer most closely served the same function/purpose as the stone/bread example.  I have come to the conclusion that a large part of the problem si that the stone/bread example served TWO distinct purposes.  First of all it served as an illustration of the biblical allusions that the author of the critique talked about earlier in the passage.  Second of all, it served as an illustration of turning percieved negatives into strength.  When looking at it this way, it becomes clear that depeninding on which you picked as the purpose of the stone/bread metaphor then either the tortoise or Job would serve equally well as asnwers.

If you decided that the purpose of the metaphor was to provide support of the biblical allusions, then obviously you are going to pick JOb.  If you decided tha tthe purpose was to show negativity turning to strength, then its obvious that you would pick the tortoise as having the most similar function.
