Friendly reminder that this is still the on topic forums and not the Lounge. Though I also suggest that jgoods needs to chill out.

Honestly, out of any profession outside of professional comedy, lawyers are very quick witted and relish pushing boundaries when they sense they are getting to someone.
Yes, this has been a supportive environment and will continue to be a supportive environment.

My metaphor was meant for a whole host of trials and tribulations--not limited to this instance.
We all have bad PT's. The LSAT is very stressful, but so is the legal profession.
I think a supportive community that isn't ALL BUSINESS ALL THE TIME can be a good thing to let steam off.

I definitely agree, and we often do have non-LSAT convos ITT but what the waiters are posting is a bit different

A good portion of the waiters will probably retake in December though, so this thread isn't and shouldn't be off limits to them. I also think they're all very capable of giving good advice so long as they're not turned off by hostile retorts.

I'm optimistic that we can all get along.

Never said they're not allowed here and I know they can give good advice, Ive seen it. But I know that more than just myself doesn't really think it is worth having to go through pages of ridiculousness

I have a question about formal logic and quantifiers, like some As are Bs.

I'm confused as to when you can actually reverse a chain. If you have a long chain that looks like this:
C-some->F->D->E.

You can say "Some Es are Cs." If you reverse everything, it would say:
E-some->D-some->F-some->C, wouldn't it?

How does that work into some Es are Cs? What if only 1 E is a D and 1 D is an F and so on? There's no guarantee of overlap. Do I have the reversed chain wrong?

I always get messed up with diagramming like this.. I tend to avoid it (maybe should look into it) it always confuses me... I read that as some C's are E's instead of other way around but like I said I dont normally get conditionals written out like that

Maybe I can help:
C some F--->D from this we can infer: C some D
C some D which can be combined with the other chain to get :
C some D----->E from which we can infer:
C some E
It's just a chain of some + all = some

HTH
Edit: D--->E is a conditional statement ( well I assume so because that is usually how u diagram them ) so D-->E means all D are E.

-1 while drilling preptest 24 LG! Even though I've seen all these questions... it's been months since I have. Plus, I got it under 35 minutes! HOORAH!

And I agree that the Septembers have a right to be here if they so choose. But I also feel like it's not helping me personally when they say things like "Good luck handing in late apps. Smart people take in September." Yes, it might be true that December is pushing it with apps... but I'm stressed as it is and I don't need people reminding me of that while I'm concentrating on LSAT prep.

Because some statements are reversible A some B is the same as B some A, so C some E is the same as E some C. Think of it this way if some boys like eating rotten eggs then it must be true that some people/things that like eating rotten eggs are boys.

I just wrote out a whole thing about how it doesn't make sense and then finally got how it does. Ugh. I hate this stuff lol


Trust me I understand, I read all the books and almost every online post and never understood it until I started the 7sage course.

Very true. I missed this, but if they do it again, I'll get them to knock it off.


Cool, thanks.

I'm definitely behind on LR drilling and it sucks. How many hours do you all put a day for LR drilling?
