Mike Barrett's 2nd LSAT Video - his "response" to TLS

Postby ihatelogicgames » Fri Jan 30, 2009 10:30 pm

This video is so much worse than the first I figured it deserves a separate thread

Here's the first thread for those who missed it:
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=58076

In his follow-up video:
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... 9186&hl=en

Mike Barrett:

-tries to capitalize on people's frustration to make a quick buck

-shares an anecdote about his girlfriend and oatmeal

-teaches us how to take 10% of a number

-misrepresents TLS criticisms (although he doesn't refer to TLS by name), pretends he's going to address them, then doesn't

-exhibits the fallacy of taking two anecdotes to "prove" his generalization that most lawyers / judges aren't smart

-promises we'll ALL get into law school

-makes more stupid comments you'll have to see for yourself

What a jerk.

Oh yeah, and I'm not him, by the way. Not sure what's going on with all the accusations around here.

Yeah, don't go to class. Pay 100K, and don't go to class. Real great advice. Wow.

After some time on google just now, I found a great LSAT blog post about Mike Barrett's scam:
