Advice on my situation

Postby chalhou1 » Tue Jun 08, 2010 10:18 pm

I plan on taking a year off and working going to law school next fall. I have taken an lsat but canceled. I have taken a Kaplan class but didn't it find it useful aside from the books. Want to take another one in October but I am wondering if Princeton Review is good or should I go with another one?

Also if I want to go to law school next fall, when do I have to have my scores in by? I plan on taking the LSAT in December, February, and June(if not too late).

Final question, is 3 months of studying enough in your opinion?

thanks

Very few schools (4th-tier) will take June scores to start law school a few months later.

December is the latest I'd recommend taking it if you want good chances at a decent school. October would be even better (law school is conducted on a rolling admissions basis).

3 months is enough, but it's the minimum I'd recommend. I just posted the following in another thread about whether 4 months is enough:

If part of that 4 months involves any or all of the following:

going away on vacation, planning a major life event (like a wedding), a major illness, a super-busy work schedule, etc., then you may need more time.

I recommend a minimum of 3 months. 4 or 5 months may be even better, depending upon how busy you are, how quickly you learn, and how much you want to improve.

I have heard better things about Princeton Review than Kaplan. I have only heard bad things about Kaplan. I took PowerScore two years ago and just took TestMasters. PowerScore was excellent, and TestMasters was even better. I highly recommend TestMasters.

If anyone has questions about PowerScore vs. TestMasters live classes, PM me.
