Is it possible to study for the LSAT while working full-time

Postby heyhowdyhey » Thu May 26, 2011 2:01 am

I have this summer to study for the October LSAT and I am probably going to be working full-time during that time. Is it possible to study (and get a good 170+ score) while working full-time? Also I'm probably going to be taking a prep class during July + August of that time for two days a week after work. I know that taking the class can sort of count as studying, but it takes up time away from reviewing independently and doing the homework. So would you say it is possible to work full-time while taking a prep class and get a good score on the LSAT?

Anything is "possible," but there are varying degrees of probability.

But to answer your question, yes, you can work full time and still get a good score. It depends on a lot of factors - how easily the test comes to you, how you schedule your time, other things that demand your attending, etc. Work hard and manage your time well.

Good luck.

I did this. But I scored a 165 on test day, when I was scoring in the range of 171-173 on PTs.

I took a piss twice during the exam.

It's definitely possible - I did it while was working 40-50 hours a week. I studied from 7-9 or 10 every night and took a prep course on the weekends. It definitely sucked, but I improved my score by 14 points from my original diagnostic and scored in the low 170s on test day. You just have to approach it like a second job and be prepared to give up your social life for a few months - definitely worth it in the long run!
