I studied while I was both in school full time and working 25 hrs/week. The key is to maximize your time - those 30 minutes in between classes should be spent doing problem sets, you should eat your dinner and do a logic game, etc. Doesn't matter if they're random and untimed question sets, as long as you are getting practice in. If you tell yourself that you can only study when you have blocks of 2 or 3 hours, nothing will ever get done.

I can beat that. I work full time, take 3 classes, have a wife and do volunteer work. It sucks but you have to just make time, weekends, before bed, early am...there is no secret, just make a schedule and stick to it

I kinda have the same problem. I'm working full time and taking 4 classes now. I make studying LSAT a priority, but it's still hard sometimes, especially when school projects are due or work gets busy. I try to do as much homework as I can at work so I can spend my time outside of work and school on LSAT. I'd like to hear some other people's good advice.

This brings me to my first point. If you're in a relationship, end it.  :)

Actually, I just agree with Rasputin (heartbreaker?) Do a game on the bus/train/between classes, anytime you get a few minutes. I did SuperPrep while eating lunch in a dining hall (worked full time + full time school.) There are 24 hours in every day. I surprised myself in how much I was able to get done.
