When should I start again?

Postby JohnV » Fri Jul 27, 2012 1:03 am

I recently decided on a new time table for myself. Instead of taking in October (doesn't seem like my work load is going to get any easier and it's already killing my prep-time) I've decided on a new plan of attack that involves taking a year off after UG and taking in June 2013. However... I've already used up 1/3 of my PTs. I don't want to quit studying, at least somewhat, but I just know I'm not going to be ready by October, work + school + other responsibilities is just really killing me, plus there are other benefits for taking a year off so there really is no need for me to rush.

That being said, I don't know what my new plan of attack is. I want to keep studying, but I realize if I do I'm just wasting material that could be better used when I can give it 100 percent focus. Anyone else in this situation or have any tips for me?

Thanks.

If you don't think you can prepare before June (and the next cycle), then that's fair and responsible. I empathize with you not wanting to "waste" sections when you're not in full gear but I would say regularly take a section here and there like once or twice a week atleast to keep in lsat shape mentally and then when you get much closer to june start doing more intensive studying. This should only take up a small proportion of your PTs in the grand scheme, and like a little over an hour a week.


I could probably finish all the PTs before the October test but it's just not going to get my full attention. Plus, come September/October I'll had midterms for fairly rigorous classes and, if I have a choice, I'd prefer to take the test when I don't have multiple test to study for.
