Wow! I never knew there were so many like minded people!

I'm a lurker that's been perusing the forum for a few weeks and decided to sign up. I'm also working towards the June 13 LSAT.

I'm debating between taking the live blueprint course in March, or just going through the online course, I feel like the main advantage to an in person class is motivation to go, but I figure anyone studying 6 months out probably has more motivation to work than the average joe studying 3-4 months out.

I am in the Bay Area, and am possibly down to study once I decide on the above. Either way, good luck everyone!

Started MLSAT LG 3rd Edition this weekend. Surprising amount of typos. Content is great as always. The first game took me 5 mins. Good to know I haven't completely lost it, but I know what lurks in the later chapters (the depths of the LG pit).

Are you just being a grammar nazi, or do the typos detract from the lessons?

I haven't looked at the proctor app, but I may.


+1. I'm also planning to sit a few at the location I plan to take the real thing, but not until a few weeks before the administration.

Nothing was detracting from the lesson. Just an extra letter in a wqord.

I plan to take this in June thanks to the advice of some of the members here. Haven't started looking at anything yet or preparing at all. I hope to start shortly after Christmas. My goal is to hit 175, although higher than that is obviously preferable.

Most likely checking in. I just don't feel ready to take the test yet...although I've done every LR, LG, and RC from PT 29-38 more than twice and read LGB, LRB, and MRC.

Checking in - Are most of you doing self-study or a prep-class? I am very much leaning toward the blueprint online prep.

This helped me pick what books to get:
From TLS1776's Thoughts on the LSAT People Who Did Exceptionally Well on the LSAT

This is probably worth reading. I was originally planning on doing a class, but I decided to self-study after spending time here. It's just a matter of what you can make yourself do enough to get the score you need. If you can make yourself take PTs and drill weak spots without a class, then you might not need one.

Checking in. Right now I am on track with Steve Schwarz's 7 months studying plan. I am on Week three, day 5, which is a day off.... I am also doing one timed RC section everyday, yesterday I did PT 21 and got 7 wrong answers, 7/26.... I am also a ETS taker, since I will be taking GRE and IBT in March 2013 ( I want to do a dual degree while I am in Law school, English is not my first language). My target score is 176. So thrilled to cram in this post and having all the wonderful congenial fraternities. Let's ace the LSAT!!!!

Are any of yall incorporating a workout routine in your prep? I think this is something I neglected my first two rounds of prep and something I think can only help the process. More specifically, for those that don't have a gym membership, what are you guys doing to stay physically fit/active?

I ran 5k every other day, and in between I probably ran 2 miles or so...... But lately the weather made it hard for outdoor running, not alone the terrible air pollution in Beijing. ( Yes I am from China....) bottom line, I tried to go for a walk if I can't run. BTW you woke up really early..... Early birds get the worm!!! Keep on shining!!!!

I have a music alarm with some crazy song from my running playlist that comes on 3 minutes before my normal alarm. I start doing pushups and crunches before I really know what's going on yet. This gets my brain awake immediately. I'm also going to try reading something for a short while as soon as I wake up. Christopher Walken claims reading first gets his brain awake enough to study two scripts at once, so it must be true. I'll be running a mile 3x a week, or enough to keep my legs from being shitty and weak and keep me from getting out of breath when I erase things frantically.

It is too damn cold in the morning for me to run, but I plan on doing pushups/crunches and starting to run once it warms up a bit.

Unrelated But Really Wanted to Share:

When I was studying for the GRE I found this website extremely helpful in getting me prepped for the RC questions (I find the GRE RC questions more difficult than the LSAT ones, consequently RC is my best section). I thought I'd share, it's essentially a compendium of any and all types of articles published by the intelligentsia (science, psychology, literature, history, politics):

:) I checked aldaily all the time, couldn't love it more. Right now I am preparing for GRE too, will take a test in March. In my opinion GRE RC is really hard to understand, especially with those long, complicated, twisted sentences. LSAT RC is more like several opinions, evidences, and the truth is, I really enjoy reading LSAT RC. GRE RC sometimes kills me....

Ordered the MLSAT series as well as around 20 practice tests. Going to do a varied version of pithypike's guide to study. I am actually very excited to start preparing for this!

Try out his free week-by-week study schedule. If you need more structure but you like the schedule, then buy the day-by-day one. I just used the free one and got by fine, IMHO it's better to have a more flexible schedule, because everyone's school/work/other stuff schedule is different.

Even the day-by-day one (the six-month version, at least) has a lot of flexibility built into it, because about half of the days are "off" days with no assignments. It's pretty easy to stay on schedule by doing assignments a day early or a day late if you need to work around other things in your life.
