I looked through the thread and couldn't find a common schedule for Retakers, are you guys looking to follow something similar to the main June thread schedule? If so, are you going to review with them or independent of them?
I've been working through the Trainer and drilling LR and LG. Thinking about hopping back on the PT train pretty soon and just wanted to see what other retakers are planning on doing for schedule and reviews.


Reb has a great schedule, which I'm tentatively following.

She (I think?) should post it again ITT, or have OP sticky it the first post.

This is what I plan to do Tuesday-Saturday


Tusday-Friday
8:30am-10:30-LSAT(2 hours)
10:30-10:45-Snack
10:45-12:45-LSAT(2 hours)
12:45-2:45- Break/Lunch
2:45-4:45-LSAT (2 hours)

Saturday
10:00AM-Preptest
12:30-Lunch

Here is my questions, should one review right after taking a test or should one review couple days after? I find it more useful to review days after to let my anxiety go down and calm down. Also, here is my breakdown 1 month to review fundamentals, 1 month to master all concepts and final month for endurance.


Please comment.

You should blind review immediately following your exam.
Your more thorough review could be later- letting the adrenaline wear off is useful-however, reviewing is especially helpful when your thought process is fresh in your mind.

Yeah, or else one can get caught in the cycle of repetition without progress.

Finishing up the trainer today, then going to start heavily drilling. I'm going to hit LR hard, but also mix in lg and RC so I don't get rusty on them.

This time around, I'm actually studying mostly on weekdays and taking it easy on weekends.

I did jack shit the last 2 days. I don't think tonight is any better. So, I moved my "finish the trainer" goal to Sunday- plus a PT on Sat/Sun. bleh.

Same. I've got friends in town, so a PT isn't happening. I might be able to sneak some LR drilling in though. #retakerlife

I've actually got the whole weekend wide open more or less. I am only now starting RC in the Trainer so I want to make up as much ground as possible and keep drilling LR and LG throughout the weekend. I really want to take 42 or 43 as per Reb's Schedule but I need to save PTs so they are more or less fresh once I finish up RC and move on to full tests. Best of luck to all who are putting in work this weekend, either drilling or PTs. I'm sure I'll be on here during my breaks.

Just did June 2007 RC section and went -4. Was -1 until the last passage where I just misread a couple answer choices. It was my first RC full section in a long time, so I have quite a ways to go before June.

Also, finished the trainer today. Now on to drilling big time. I may also work through the Manhattan LR book again

Let me know if you see a noticeable difference between Manhattan and the Trainer for LR. I'm only using the Trainer for LR prep, but if it's insufficient to cement my understanding of all the nuances of this damn section, I'll have to look into picking up MLSAT LR too.

Iirc manhattan is more by question type. I like how the trainer emphasizes overlap among q types

Out of curiosity:

What scores are u all retaking?

What score will you have to get in June to avoid another retake?

I'm assuming people are applying for next cycle, but anyone this cycle ?

I'm retaking a cancel.

I'm going to wait until next year to apply.I need to ED to UVA-Gtown-NU due to my crap GPA. Also this will give me a chance to set up interviews.

I use/used the powerscore LR bible and although I think it's good/ I feel that some of the steps they have you take are very time consuming
