Jam - how are you finding time to make your own packets? Are you making them by question type, similar to what Cambridge offers? I tried making my own packets, but it proved to be an excruciatingly time consuming endeavor.


A while back I scanned clean copies of my PTs into PDFs so that I can print out and use pieces as I felt necessary.

I like my drills to look exactly like a PT, so I just snapshot a question out of a PDF and paste it into a Word doc that is split into two columns. My LR drills have 2-4 questions per page and look almost exactly like a PT.

That's exactly what I was doing- managed to get up to 150 questions before caving and just buying the packets. Time is the most precious of commodities. 8)

Do you also arrange yours by level of difficulty?

I really need to start going to Starbucks everyday again. That's where I'm most productive. I get too distracted at home.


I used to study at Starbucks all the time, and then I hated smelling like coffee hours later. I can't study at home either. Study wiff me??

Actually same here. Even though I live alone, I cannot will myself away from all the distractions. Plus, the Starbucks I go to is so cozy it makes me look forward to going there and doing LSAT as a result.

It really doesn't take that much time. Cut and paste a question takes a few seconds. It's a nice break from drilling, or sometimes I do it at work during downtime.

I didn't arrange by difficulty...I like the surprise (though with the question# I make a general idea of where it appears on the section and what sort of question difficulties tend to be there).

I'm sort of freakishly excited to be retaking. I know I can prep harder than I did, and I know I can score higher. I'm really looking forward to finally getting it right this time around.

How are you feeling about it?

So I sat down and planned each day of LSAT studying for next 45 days.

I realized my biggest issue last time around was not drilling consistently. I did one PT a day and took a break reviewed and moved on. My current schedule will allow me to finish all the Cambridge Packets and allows me to take 19 PTs. I need to spend more time on a few question types in LR and do deep review in LG. I also am doing 4 passages a day to keep my RC in shape.

Hope this works

I do the same exact thing! If I want to get solid studying in. Typically I spend the majority of my Saturdays and Sundays working at Starbucks!

I'm taking my first practice GMAT tonight. I'm kind of sad that I don't have a group of people to obsess over it with. :(

Wait. Fill me in on your plans. Did September go well for you or are your taking the LSAT as well? Or are you scrapping lawl school and just sticking around because you love us?

I think I'm gonna stick with my Sept score. May retake in Feb for $$. But my plan is JD and MBA.
