There are a lot of games for which diagramming is unnecessary IMO. I think a lot of people diagram first and think about the rules closely after - personally I think you should answer the first question (the which-one-of-these-is-possible question) before diagramming. Helps you understand the setup better by forcing you to pay close attention to the rules.


I agree- I was just talking about this yesterday. I think 7Sage overrepresents hypos/diagramming in his videos a bit.

:D Looking forward to September Waiter's thread after a disappointing one in June!


Nah, the June waiters thread was solid. Not saying the Sept one isn't going to better, but still.


No, it really wasn't.

I'm K-JD, but i've got management experience, applying to fulbright and MPP programs at London school of Economics, and i'll prob do those before LS if I get accepted.... but it depends on my LSAT. If I can get an 172 and higher, I'll have the grades for a decent scholarship at most T-14's and prob do that.

Fulbright > everything else.

I'm supervisor of the entire building, including fitness/maintenance/lifeguard staff + in charge of the volleyball leagues and basketball leagues for about 10 hours a week, usually from afternoon till closing.

I'm also in charge of training new hires in the fitness dept, plus I run (up until the 20th of sept) the basketball leagues.

Nothing fancy, but it's decent, at least I think so.

Nah, PT. It depends on the time of the year. I'll be working ~30 hours a week this upcoming semester, but this summer, I rarely worked more than 20.

That sounds really interesting. So do you work part time one place and part time at the other or are the food stamps + halfway house related?

Lol well by food samps I mean samples, like I supervise them giving out samples, I work there 25-30 hours a week.

And at the halfway house I make sure everyone is in and sober at night, and am on call for issues and do some other assorted stuff. I work maybe 15-20 hours for that a week.

What kind of non profit work do you do?

3 yrs out of undergrad working as a writer/analyst/project manager/occasional graphic designer at a small marketing company. It's a cool role because our company does a lot of work through our main client for a lot of F500 companies, and I do quite a bit of client facing work.

Just found the results from a practice test I took freshman year of undergrad (April 2010) through Kaplan. Apparently it was PT 36 and I got a 168. I'm definitely taking PT36 this weekend and I am going to give up if I score worse.

I work for an ed non-profit, primarily running a large program for low-income elementary and middle-school kids. I'm not a teacher, though. I enjoy it, but it can definitely be a bit lonely because I'm one of the only young-ish people I know in my town and there aren't many people who seem to care.


Awwwwww
