What is Tips for Studying Alongside School?

Recommended Posts

Take a diagnostic test on the weekend, like timed and everything (use an LSAT Proctor, on YouTube + 7sage).

Grab any self-LSAT study book, doesn't really matter which one, but I personally enjoyed The LSAT Trainer by Mike Kim as it also came with a variable schedule.

Go through a chapter per weekend (each chapter is pretty short, cap it at like 1.5hrs max per weekend).

Surprisingly, I was able to make and follow a much better schedule when I studied for the Jan LSAT. I followed the PowerScore study guide and did about 1 or 2 chapters every night.

I find that studying for a summertime LSAT is easier as you have all of May to really crunch down and study for the LSAT full-time. You can gradually build up to that during the semester in a way that doesn't affect your current studies. 

I also think it's a matter of finding a big enough chunk of time on the weekend to work on the LSAT only (5-6 hours), and finding 1-2 hours every weeknight to go over a chapter or practice/review a section.

    • They only do interview on Monday and Tuesday and almost every spot were free. So I guess they were just starting
    • I think Onepost made some great points, so I don't see any reason to restate what was said in that post.  I would just like to add that I am also applying to law school with a history of depression. I'm certainly nervous about it, especially since it affected my performance in undergrad. I've made the decision that I don't want my mental illness hold me back from pursuing my goals in life, and I hope that in the end it won't hold you back either. However, I second Onepost that suicidal thoughts are very serious, and that it may benefit you to take some time to address mental health concerns before actually accepting any offers.  One final consideration is that it is often easier to access mental health resources as a student. If you are having difficulty paying for a therapist or getting the appropriate medication, the campus wellness center may be able to help out. You may have to weigh the benefits of having reliable access to good care against the difficulty of placing yourself in a stressful environment.  I wish you all the best for the future and that you are able to find fulfillment whatever you decide. 
    • @Uott33 do you know if they just started calling or if they're done!
    • Thanks for sharing, that place looks great. Although $1,300 a month? Can people really afford that on a LOC and a summer job? I think I'd max out the LOC.
    • Okay cool! Good to know. Not sure how I'll be able to give them a call back since they didn't leave a message. Hopefully they will call me back.
