Probably a bunch if you end up reading the whole topic, but I randomly clicked that page and found the very first one to be have scored a 179 in one month.

Now, if your question was whether someone studied exactly 60 days and on the 60th day took the test and got a 170, that might be a little harder to find out, but I'm sure the answer is yes.

Two months is a long time if you are diligent about your studying. Since a large portion of your gains occur early in the process I imagine that many if not most people who break 170 do so within the first two months.

I was six weeks, PTing in the low-mid 170s but got a 169 on test day for the first administration. It's definitely possible.

He is asking about exactly 8 weeks. Not 7, or 3, or even 1. 8. Just 8. Has anyone done it in exactly 60 days?
Btw, damn Matt 3.5 weeks...Jeez, how many hours?

Almost nobody studies for 2 months.

Thats what makes this question so difficult. Has anyone studied for 60 consecutive days without any breaks, and then took the LSAT on their 60th day and got a 170+?

First few days I went over a few books (which were not helpful). Then, I switched to PTs. I took 2/day, with full review of each one. Somewhere in the ballpark of 10 hours a day.

My neck hurt, my girlfriend thought I had meningitis, and I nearly lost my mind. I wouldn't recommend studying like that.

this is the key. maybe not 2 a day, but do like 30-40 of them and go over your wrong answers.

Entirely depends where you start. My diagnostic was ~165. I studied for 3 months and got a 176, but two months in I was PTing at 172. Doable, definitely.

I had all the above. In addition, I also had my leg and butt feel like I was in a wheelchair standing up for the first time after an 8 hour session.
Yours seem a bit too intense lol totally worth it though.
