1.) Is it too difficult to study and work full-time?2.) Am already planning on taking a Powerscore course, but was wondering if it would be worth the money to hire a tutor on top of the course? I have saved the money needed, and in the past tutors have really seemed to help me personally (SAT, etc).
First off wanted to say thanks to everyone on this board. I am just beginning the application process, and while I am a first time poster, I have gained valuable advice from people on this board.As for the question, I am taking a year off before law school working at the Department of Justice next year on a year internship. Am going to be there in June, where I will work and study for the October LSAT. But my questions are...1.) Is it too difficult to study and work full-time?2.) Am already planning on taking a Powerscore course, but was wondering if it would be worth the money to hire a tutor on top of the course? I have saved the money needed, and in the past tutors have really seemed to help me personally (SAT, etc).Any advice/recommendations would be much appreciated. Thanks!
As to a tutor, I'd be inclined toward the opposite. Unless you have someone with significant credentials, and unless you've exhausted every practice LSAT there is . . . unlikely, of course . . . the added value of a tutor is probably marginal. Still, I hesitate to recommend against it, so if you are so inclined, give that person a try. But remember that the key is not some "inside secret," but rather the mental exercise that comes with practice test after practice test.Best of luck . . .
i disagree with this bit here. i think a tutor isn't really worth it if you are acquiring a tutor through a major prep test company (like testmasters, kaplan, or something) since it will cost probably over 100 an hour, but if you find a tutor through craigslist (or a friend) then you can find a decent tutor in the neighborhood of 40 to 50 dollars an hour. at that cost, i believe it is silly to take a class, when you could probably get the entire class taught to you individually in significantly less time than a 20-30 person class.
