How many hours a day did you spend studying for the LSAT?

Postby JustSomebody » Thu May 26, 2011 11:10 pm

I am aware that there is a thread detailing people's study habits, but a lot of them only say the length of time they spent studying (e.g. 3 months) and not the amount of hours per day.

I ask because I am very close to getting offered a full-time job, but I am curious as to if I will be able to handle that while studying for the LSAT. After working 9 to 5 each day, I'll really only have about 4 hours left to study before I'm worn out, and even that's pushing it.

So if could say how many hours a day you spent studying and if you wouldn't mind telling me what score you got, that'd be super de duper.

I did rather light studying compared to some of the people around here - 3-5 hours a day, 3-5 days a week, 6 weeks. Went +12 on my diagnostic.


I wouldn't necessarily recommend starting with a 6-week plan (my circumstances were unique), but I would absolutely caution against taking more than 3-4 days a week for studying. Burnout is absolutely real and horrendous for your confidence/focus

I have been studying less time overall but more time per day than usual. By the time I take the test I will only have been studying "full time" for a little over a month, but I have put in at least 4 and closer to 6-7 hours a day every day during that time. I've taken one day off.

Same. I've been familiar with the content of the test for a few years so I wasn't new to the subject matter when I started "full time" about this time last month. I'd say an extremely light day would be apx. 3 hours. My heaviest days were 10 hours. Avg. would be 5-6.
