When to begin LSAT Prep/When to take LSAT?

Postby dolphlaw » Mon Feb 19, 2018 12:48 pm

College junior graduating in May 2019. I am planning to work for at least two years after undergrad, prior to enrolling in law school. That said, when is the right time to begin LSAT prep/actually take the test? Should I begin prep now, as if I was applying for next year's cycle? Or wait to begin prep until out of school/in my senior year. All advice appreciated! Thanks.

I would suggest you wait until you really have the time to commit to studying. You should plan to spend about 20 hours a week studying. If you can commit that kind of time in undergrad go ahead and take it now. If you need to wait until you graduate, wait, there's no rush. However, I would say that you should plan to take an administration earlier rather than later. Having a score your happy with in your pocket will give you a lot of relief. Also, you want to take the test early enough that you can apply in September of your cycle, that way you can get the maximum advantage from your application.
