Law School Admissions / Financial Aid Question
« on: October 01, 2006, 08:27:41 PM »
Hey all, finished my apps today ;D.  Confused about all the financial aid forms, though.  I haven't submitted a single one (except for Berkeley's, I guess, which is a part of the application itself).  Am I supposed to be submitting these now alongside my applications?  Or do I wait until I have actually been accepted?

Are merit-based scholarships doled out even if these forms haven't been submitted?  I assumed they would be, but Duke's form got me thinking.  It says specifically that 'You must submit this form to be considered for scholarship assistance,' and one of the boxes immediately below my personal information is 'I would like to be considered for a scholarship based only on merit; therefore, am not required to complete the remainder of this form.'  That leads me to assume that you wouldn't be considered for merit-based scholarships like the Mordecai unless you mailed this form in. 

What do you think?

Law School Admissions / Personal Statement AND Diversity Statement
« on: August 31, 2006, 07:16:09 PM »
Wondering how to deal with schools that do not specifically ask for a diversity statement.  Yale and Stanford, for example, seem to want the personal statement and the diversity statement rolled into one, while other schools like Columbia and Chicago don't even mention diversity when discussing personal statements.  I currently have a personal statement and a completely separate diversity statement.  My original plan was to just send both in to every school, especially because my diversity statement is just one page long and some schools like Yale make it clear to send "whatever additional material" you think will help admission officers make their choice.  I guess my question is if there are there any schools where I should avoid sending in my diversity statement? 

Studying for the LSAT / a few LR
« on: June 15, 2006, 01:29:31 PM »
it seems like everyone's asking for these now, but i was wondering if i could get a little help remembering a few LR questions:

13) Music/Math Parallel Reasoning Question
Answer: not paying attention/poor class performance/bad hearing

- I remember this very vaguely... can anyone refresh me on the stimulus?  Was it something like kids who don't pay attention in class have poor class performance?  How did the answer parallel?  What were some of the incorrect answer choices?

15) Video Games/Kids/Agression
Answer: younger kids that did not play video games still approved of violence

- I'm 60% sure I went with this... does anybody else remember some of the other answer choices, though?  If I remember correctly the stimulus was like kids who play violent video games believe violence is acceptable, therefore, violent video games cause children to become accepting of violence.  weaken the argument.  now that i've typed it out... i remember another choice: kids who didn't play violent video games still approved of violence.  is that the same as the tcr we have up?  i might have gone with that one instead, if no.

20) most computer programmers are highly paid
answers: most garderners are patient, most of mary's classmates are garderners, at least one of mary's classmates is patient.

- i know the right answer is either this or something that sounds very similar to this.  there were at least two answer choices that used patience and gardeners and they were my top 2 choices.  i think i went with B.  is that the TCR?

31) question about how to prove a theorem, all the proofs leading up to the theorem must be proved.
answer: that computers checking the parts of a theorem is not sufficient to prove it, i.e. need humans to verify it.

- does anybody remember what letter this answer was?  were there any other contenders?

32) museum shows special exhibits and on those days there are more ticket sales but the visitors stay a shorter amount of time.  this question asked for the choice that does not explain the discrepancy.
answer: museum did not extend hours when it had special exhibits

- 85% sure i went with this answer, but were there any other contenders?

34) rotten fruit/inspections
answer: all fruit that is not infected is safe to eat

- i was crazy tired when i hit this one, because i swear i remember my answer being something like "all fruit that is inspected is safe to eat" - does that ring any bells?  i guess it might have been "all fruit that is not infected is safe to eat" lol, and i just mixed up infected and inspected (and took out a not).

41) celebrities critcizing middle-class people for using up world resources?
Answer: the person was attacking the celebrities rather than their arguments

- I think I went with this... but what were some of the other contenders?

50) obese people/high-fat diets/calories
answer: drowsiness/pilots?

- ???... the drowsiness and pilots portion sounds familiar... anybody have any other information about this one?

and obviously #51 too...

whew long list, thanks a lot for any help in advance!
