Those of you who are working full time, how many hours are you able to put in a day? What is your study schedule like?

While I haven't gotten in deep yet for this take, for October I would try to put in 1-3 hours a day depending on how I was feeling. Grinding through the LSAT isn't quite like sports, if you keep working your mind when you are tired you wont get anything out of it. I plan to try to devote at least an average of 2 hours a day after work to studying and however much I can on the weekends. The best amount of time is however much you can comfortably put in while awake and focused!


I feel ya, and agree with all of that. But after I bombed the October LSAT (-8 from my PT average), I'm heading into the December LSAT with renewed focus. It's my 3rd retake too, so gonna really give it my all. That said, more realistically, I feel myself following a similar study schedule to yours.

Same boat with the third take. It's been really hard studying full time but I think 1-3 hours is good...I honestly don't think doing at PT after work is gonna happen for me. I'll be wasting a PT because my mind just won't be there. I think just drilling/reviewing is good for the weekdays and then the weekends are for PTs and serious grinding. I'm gonna start PTs the first weekend of November.

When are other people starting to do their PTs?

Tough for me to find the time to study, but I try to do 1-2 hours a day after work, depending on the day I had teaching. Just did 164 on PT 63.. Still struggling with LG.

so i am trying to figure out a plan to improve RC, but i don't have any fresh tests. i have done the Manhattan RC book and Trainer for RC but it didn't make a difference for me.
i have tried reading the passage both fast (in 2-2:30 min) and slow (3:30-4:30 min) and i end up missing about the same.

those who aced the oct rc after improving in this section, how did you do so?
(if you can say without spoiling pt-76 for those who haven't taken it) is 75 RC or 72 RC closer to the current RC trend?
