Studying for the LSAT / OVER KILL STUDYING
« on: September 21, 2006, 09:31:30 PM »
Hey I was wondering what "amount" of studyign people usually do. Is doing 2 full timed tests in a given day over kill or are there people out there having success with this "cramming"??? Bear in mind im taking the June LSAT so I'm not in a cramming 1 week away LSAT mode like everyone else. For those who are good luck!

Right now I'm kind of in a tight spot. I'm not thrilled about settling for a school thats not in the top 40. (usnews ranking) I go to Temple University undergrad and have a 3.47 overall and 3.97 in Criminal Justice major and 3.5 in Psychology major. Temple law is a good school but its not the best I could do and I really want a change of scenery. My dream school really is Fordham or George Washington U.

Right now I'm registered for the Sept LSAT but my diagnostics are only hitting high 150s. I know I pretty much need mid to high 160s for a school like Fordham. Should I just cancel taking the test in Sept and wait, take a year off, and practice for the LSAT? In addition my senior year grades will be averaged in bringing me up to a 3.57. (This is assuming I get all As which I have been doing the past 2 years, my freshman year was an array of Cs in sciences) I was thinking of still taking the Sept LSAT but I'm too worried of still only getting in the high 150s and having that score linger around for such a long time and then have to be averaged in with any subsequent test scores. Should I just take the test and see how I do or just wait til the June 07 or October 07 LSAT to take it the first time?

Finally, I would really have to find something to do in the year off between  undergrad and law school. Any suggestions about this and the previous? Thanks for your input!!!
