I aimed for september and instead ended up in december and it sucked!!! with finals and everything. Aim for september. I made sure that all my presentations in my classes and big papers I picked later dates for. Then it screwed me over for december.

what do you want to hear, friend? switch majors. or take a year off to study. top #s require top effort. it's not a magic trick.

If you're planning to study full-time over the summer, then you will learn the majority of what you need to learn regarding the LSAT. By August, you should already be taking timed PT's that will spill over into September. From there, studying will require careful planning around your courses, midterms etc.

I wouldn't stress about it too much. I was in the same position. By the time Sept. rolled around, I was breezing through the LSAT. Although stressful, it's manageable.

I too am in the suck it up and do it boat. I know I'm prepping for June and have been for a while on 15 credit hours, division 1 Varsity sport practice schedules, and final exams. You just have to know what you want and go for it. As for the other classes, I would take a B or something in one or two if it meant I hit my LSAT goals. This test carries far more weight than any other class you have or will take. You can do it, you just need to budget your time and decide what's really important.

Don't worry about it. I was working 40-50 hours a week w/ a 1 hour round trip commute. You will make time for it. Also, my experience was that getting a good score on the LSAT was less about how many hours per day were spent studying and more about long-term recognition. Things would randomly start to click for me because I had been doing it for an hour everyday for 3+ months. I think if I crammed all that in to the month before the test I wouldn't have done as well. The month before the LSAT should just be you keeping your LSAT skills honed, rather than actually learning anything new (ideally). I think you'll have enough time for that.

Study all summer and then take it easy in September. Study when you have the time and don't sweat it when you can't; you're not going to forget everything you will have learned over the summer.
