Ideal time to study for LSAT.

Postby instra:mental » Fri Aug 19, 2011 1:53 am

Hey!

I was wondering, If you end up landing an internship the summer after your junior year, when do these typically start? For law and/or banking/consulting--if anyone knows the latter.

The reason I ask this is, it seems that if you are prepping for the June LSAT, which you would take during the same summer as a potential internship, LSAT study could be seriously stiffled because of a hardcore internship that requires all of your time, focus and energy.

Do some people take the LSAT after their senior year instead, if they are interning the summer after their junior year? Maybe they would study and take the LSAT before their job (pre-law school, for WE) starts, right after they graduate UG?

Sorry if all of this is confusing, ha. I'm just trying to figure out when the best time to study for the LSAT is, assuming you are working a very demanding summer internship the summer after your junior year.

There will always be school or an internship or a job or a wedding or a new baby or something that prevents whatever time from being the ideal time to study for the LSAT. There's never a good time.

You gotta figure out your priorities and decide what to sacrifice. If your goal is to go straight to law school, maybe the internship isn't that important and you can slack off there more than you otherwise would so you can study the LSAT. If the internship is really really important, and you're not in a hurry to go to school, maybe wait until after graduation and things settle down a bit. Maybe you can take a light load in the fall and study for the December test. Only you can decide what's the least bad time for you to study.
