Is LEEWS worth it?

Postby CML9 » Tue Oct 11, 2016 6:19 pm

I'm half way through my first semester 1L year and I'm trying as hard as I can to be in the top of the class. I was recommended LEEWS from my LSAT tutor who's other students used it their 1L year, and they were consistently in the top 10% of their classes.

I'm an extremely hard worker and I'm sacrificing everything for my grades. I barely have time for anything except studying. I purchased the LEEWS program and I'm about to start it. Can you tell me if I would benefit significantly compared to the average 1L who never wrote a law school exam before?

I'll let others chime in, but I can say that I did LEEWS the summer before law school, and I was comfortably within the top 5% of my T50 school after 1L. That said, I knew I had to bust my ass to get a good job, so I studied my ass off and followed a lot of advice in these types of posts (especially the Arrow post):

Also, while it was like 6 years ago when I did LEEWS, I remember it being really expensive and I skipped a bunch of parts that seemed stupid after having already read getting to maybe, etc. I definitely didn't follow it's advice or strategy exactly on exams, but I do think it was a good exercise to get me going before 1L started.

I did LEEWS the summer before 1L. I do not think it helped. I personally do not recommend it to people.
