Hello All. I was wondering if anyone here could give me some good advise. I'm going to start my first semester at CSUF in the upcoming fall. I was wondering how early i should start prepping for the LSAT? Would it be wise to do it after just a few semesters at CSUF? I'm majoring in Business Management with a emphisis on Legal Studies.

don't worry about the lsat too much now. get good grades and read some challenging material to improve your reading skills. if you start studying six months before the test, that would give you more than enough practice. 3-4 months is probably best.

I also agree that about 5-6 months is good study time for the LSAT. I did about 8 months and was getting pretty burnt out around a month before the test. I dont think doing much more than that will really help you any as long as you take that 5-6 months and say goodbye to your SO, family, friends, etc. and live the life of a sexless hermit who doesn't see the light of day.

Don't fuck up. Take easy classes when you can, keep your GPA up. Don't take classes with the words "Legal" or "Law" in the title just because you think it'll help, but take them if you're actually interested.

Enjoy your undergrad.

Try and find out more about law school and whether or not you actually want to go.

Again, keep that GPA up.

Probably best to take the LSAT no earlier than your junior year (or really, third of four, I suppose, or fourth of five if applicable). Probably best to study for no more than 6 months and likely more like 2-4, depending on need. Would be worth taking a logic class somewhere along the line if possible.

My advice: you're 18. You aren't going to be the same person at 22 that you are now. Maybe your 22-year-old self will still want to go to law school. If so, wonderful.

Enjoy yourself. Try new things. Don't approach everything you do with an eye to law school -- that will take care of itself if you are serious about your studies and pursue things you're interested in.
