In an ideal world Id be able to practice all day long to the point Id be able to give lectures on the LSAT, but realistically I work two jobs, cant afford a prep course and can only study a few hours a week on a borrowed book from my local library.  I have no problem understanding LSAT concepts it's the time factor that I struggle with

1. Even though CBE schools are less expensive than ABA, attending a CBE school is an expensive proposition. Law school wants money every time you turn around. If you can't afford an LSAT prep course, you're going to have a rude awakening once you enroll somewhere - anywhere. Not that prep courses are critical, but a serious student would find a way to get into one, especially if he's already received a score in the low 140s on a formal administration of the test (versus self-testing).

2. You can buy study guides from LSAC and elsewhere for $20-$40. If you're limiting your preparation to a few hours a week with a book borrowed from the library, you aren't approaching the LSAT with nearly the energy, dedication, and determination that you need to apply to it. You should be tackling practice exams every evening and all weekend for months before the next LSAT. Not a few hours a week.

3. Part-time attendance at law school is a second full-time job. If you don't devote the time to it, you'll waste your time, their time, and your money.

Just some food for thought. Law school success demands that you be all in, or not in at all.

you so very, very wise.

Why do you post on LSD, Julie?

Wait. Maybe that question answers itself.

you so deep, einstein.  your community college crowd must give you lots ego reinforcement.

cost of law school shrinking.  if bottomed out, time go.

got news:  aba not responsible regulating legal profession.
Technically true, but I think we know that OP meant the ABA is the biggest gatekeeper to the legal profession in the sense of being the most commonly accepted accepted accreditation agency and setting the standards for law schools.

technically, op should say that.  otherwise, aba going take notice its critics not very precise.
