Hello,Undergrad student here at SUNY Geneseo, and I want to get into a top school and I will get into a Top school if I apply my time on studying and make wiser desicions. I know this is an overall topic for discussion because the LSAT is extremely important, and difficult test and might I add EXPENSIVE. I saved up a couple thousands but I want to have like a perfect score or close to it, so I will like to start in my Junior year. Is that a good idea or am I waisting my money on the classes by starting early? My top school choices are;Harvard LawYale LawBerkley LawCornellBoston College LawBoston UniversityNYU cOLUMBIA
Don't worry about running out of materials. Few people will take all 50someodd practice tests. Even if you do, just reuse 'em. In fact, plan on reusing materials because, IMHO, familiarity is ultimately more important than anything, and that familiarity is easier with repetition.Burnout is a bigger potential problem. If you're a nerd you might be able to study it for years and never get sick of it. If you're normal, you'll probably want to gouge your eyeballs out after a few months.Obviously you're prepared to invest in your prep, and that's great. Do your homework finding out who the best teachers are in your area. One thing that I think is very very important is not to mix methods. If you start, for instance, with a PowerScore class, then hire a tutor, hire one that uses PowerScore's method. If you instead start with a Princeton Reveiew tutor, stick with Princeton Review's method. If you start with PS, which takes one approach, then switch to TPR, which uses an entirely different approach, that gets confusing. It's not that one method is better than another (at least, not enough for me to care), but whatever you do, pick one and run with it.
