Me. I go to U of T, but I don't move back into residence until start of start of September
How can we make group study work? I always wonder. Let's say we have different PT schedules, you are taking PT45 and I'm taking PT50. We review our LR mistakes by explaining our thought process etc.. If I were to explain a question I got wrong on PT50, then wouldn't you be spoiled of the question?
But I can see why making a LSAT study group can provide moral support for the weak-minded, i.e. myself.
I'm actually in the same boat as you, currently living in Markham and commuting downtown every day, bit of a hassle but I'm also swimming at Hart House every day and occasionally staying over with friends so it's not too unreasonable. The moral support element is definitely key, I definitely would not have the same level of dedication to studying without the support/competition of other group members =P
Yeah it hasn't been a problem since I started studying with the same people from day 1, we usually meet up 5-6 days a week, do 4-5 timed PTs together with limited review of mistakes the day of, plus a whole day dedicated to review at the end of the week where we reexamine all mistakes along with questions we answered correctly but marked as difficult during the PTs. We usually alternate review between LR and LG+RC, so each review encompasses two weeks' worth of PTs. We've paced the PTs so that we finish 72 a few days before test day, currently finished up to 26 with a few more recent PTs mixed in to get a feel for the increase in difficulty. So depending on what your current progress is like you can wait til our schedules match up or just show up to review sessions to review older questions with us before then.
Also I'm new to the forum so if it is better etiquette to move this sort of thing to PM we can do that.
