Solid. This sounds pretty close to my plan for studying for my last take in June (to bump up scholarships and/or defer for a year). I'm only slightly jealous that I don't have the ability to just sit and study for a summer.

Working full time makes a lot of the guides here on TLS hard to stick with from a purely time-based standpoint.

New Fav LSAT Thread:

I love Tort and he helped me so much along the way and I'm certainly going to be using any further advice I might have missed going forward!

Thank you~

Thanks, fam! Tbh, you're one of the nicest people I've ever interacted with, and you deserve nothing but good. Hit me up if you want to chat or talk about prep!



Thank you, sir. Likewise :) I will -- I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions when I get to PT'ing and RC, haha!

Here ya go, your first first taker. :D

I really wish I could study as much as this guide demands but my semester is unexpectedly grueling in terms of the volume of work I have. I have a paper, a midterm and an in-class presentation next week, all in one class.

I keep telling myself to ease up and let myself get a B or two this semester..."it doesn't matter, it won't affect your GPA that much, a 3.95 is still basically a 4.0" but then the aspie in me takes over LOL.

Cool guide! Obviously followed one similar to yours when I studied but I would like to add one caveat to all LSAT takers who will follow:

SweetTort (OP) scored a 164 on his first (cold) diagnostic. That's the 89/90th percentile. It's quite exceptional to score that well without any preparation. So while I wont discount OP's amazing bump (from a great to an even greater score), most LSAT takers can expect a 10 point bump of their own but cannot expect to start off as well as OP did.

I say this because it's important to keep realistic expectations. Obviously OP is gifted in a way that most LSAT takers are not. Even though his guide looks rigorous and is probably full of very solid advice, you must remember where he started.

So take my caveat with a grain of salt. In any case I have yet to read an article by someone who scored in the low 150s cold and ended up with 175+

This guide doesn't demand anything schedule-wise. If you only have enough time in a week to do what Tort did in a day, you can still get the same amount of work done, it will just take you longer. There is absolutely no rush for you to take this test, I think that is really important to understand (you see Tort pushed their administration back multiple times until they were ready). If that means just an hour of drilling per day for the next 6+ months before you start doing full length tests, so be it. Once you start on full length tests, you will still be drilling, doing BR, and writing down why certain answers were correct, etc, and all of that can be broken down to fit into your schedule as you can (although, as the guide says, I do think its important to schedule what you're doing, but it just doesn't have to be in nearly as long of blocks as Tort did). You will need to make room for multiple full length tests/wk, but that is something you can plan future terms or summers around, as the current one doesn't allow it.

Or just take over the summer! The LSAT is more important the all of your undergrad courses combined.


This. It is so much more important, especially in your final few semesters. Your GPA isn't changing much either way, but your LSAT defines your chances.
