Um so I am new to this whole site and everything, and you all kind of have me freaked out a little bit. I just now bought my books for the October 2008 LSAT, and I am going to start studying here in the next week or so. Am I getting too much of a late start here? I've had several friends take the LSAT and they didn't start studying until 2 months or so before the test, so I figured I was still okay. Is this not the case?
Ah! Don't freak out!
Remember, I have one child with another on the way, I'm working part-time (25 hours) and going to school full-time (12-15 hours)... I have a LOT of things on my plate that require extra time in order for me
to feel that I have prepped enough. I'm also hoping for 175+, which would get me a full ride for at least the first year at the school of my choice (IU Indy).
That said, it is a little late to begin a relaxed preparation, but ANYTHING is better than nothing at all!! Have you taken a diagnostic test yet of any kind? If you put the effort into it, and you believe that you will be fine, you will be
. Don't let those of us who want to start early freak you out - most of the posters on this board will tell you that a year can cause burnout for many people. If your friends did fine, you may too - or you may not. The effectiveness of your study is probably more important than the amount of time you spend on it. How do you take standardized tests? What kind of score are you looking for?
