Studying for the LSAT / Re: Time to allot for studying
« on: September 11, 2013, 05:16:49 PM »
First of all, I really hope this post is correctly placed and I'm not asking a question that has been answered hundreds of times already. If I am in the wrong place I'd appreciate a referral to a forum better suited for my question.

A little bit about me: Iím about to go into my first year at UCLA, currently declared as an Electrical Engineering major, but over the last year or so Iíve taken a pretty big interest in applying to law school after undergrad, and thus, have been doing quite a lot of research on the law school applications process and the LSATs. Iíve done a lot of research on study plans, information about the LSAT, and have even taken the June 2007 practice test to see where I currently falls. On the practice test I scored a 166, My end goal, as Iím sure is the same as many othersí, is to get that score to the mid-to-high 170s by the time I decide to take the test.

I wanted to ask about how much time to allot to studying for the LSAT. Iíve seen study plans/schedules of various lengths on sites like the lsatblog and elsewhere, but have heard differing opinions on long-term vs shorter term studying. Some have said that long-term studying can help to really set in all the information while others, such as the writer at, have suggested that 3-4 months is the optimal time and anything in the longer term can have a negative impact on retention (I also wonder about the limited number of preptests available to study from having to be spread over longer periods of time). Does anyone have an opinion on this and a suggestion on the optimal amount of studying time?

Thanks so much for any and all input!

turn-ons, turn-offs?
