This is an intense schedule, but it allows you time to take a week or so off if you get burnt out and feel like you need to take a break. Good call on the 6-sections. Another technique that helped me get a 175+ is to do 30-minute sections once you are scoring in the 170's with 35-minute sections.

Also, learn to deal with anxiety ahead of time, just in case it comes up, even if you have never experienced test anxiety before. Relaxation techniques, breathing exercises, whatever works for you.

Feel free to PM me with any specific questions if they come up.

Might join in like May if my cycle sucks. My 170 is above the 75th for any reasonable target school. Would only retake for 173 and NU. GPA sucks if you didn't figure it out already. 175+ or bust is nonsensical though and that study schedule is ridiculous.

I think most people would realistically be 170 or bust. At least I am.

I am shooting for 175+ and right now am just going through the LRB and LGB getting used to problem types and doing a couple of practice ones when I have the time (I am studying in China this semester so there isn't much time).

I will probably start doing practice tests in Jan or Feb a few times/week and increase the frequency to several times/week when school gets out in early May.

I just took my first cold test, I tried to keep it close to the correct times, but for the first one I let myself go over until I finished the section (approx. 5 mins over per section), I scored a 163; I'm thinking either June or Oct. test. What are the typical first time scores? Am I too far behind to join?

OP I like your initiative.

And here I was thinking January was really early!

Unfortunately, I am not in a position to be starting now, but come mid January I would be down for something like this, obviously scaled down to fit Jan --> June.

Not to steal your thunder, but if I may make a suggestion:

It seems there is quite a bit of interest, although people want to start later, (and the general consensus is that this is overkill) so why don't you/we build a program/gather people over December, give everyone time to buy their test/prep materials then when mid January hits and everybody is back at school we get this rolling?

Im in. I have a slightly different schedule, however. I am going to be doing 5-section preptests initially and move on to 6-section preptests when I get to preptest 45-50. The extra sections will be coming from the oldest tests.
