"Ludicrous" to take a quarter off of school to study for the LSAT?

Vonck

I told my mom and dad that I planned to take a quarter off of school next year to study for the LSAT, and they looked at me like I was crazy.  They said that my cousins didn't take time off school to study for the MCAT or LSAT, and therefore I shouldn't have to.  I, on the other hand, think that it would be very beneficial and would help me study if I didn't have to take classes at the same time as studying for the LSAT.  What are your thoughts?

If you can still graduate in time (and not make a major GPA sacrifice), I'd say sure.

That's the thing: I think that my GPA would be sacrificed more by taking classes while trying to study for the LSAT and not giving full attention to the classes.

Oh, and another thing: Is it very common to take a quarter off to study?

I almost agree with your parents.  If you take the June test you can study during the semester--take a prep course if you want- and then you'll have a month after the semester ends to study for the exam.  I don't see any reason to take it off.  I have heard of however, people taking the year after graduation off primarily to study for the lsat.--it always seemed silly to me.

For a split second, i thought this thread was going to be about the rapper Ludicrus (I'm sure i spelled his name wrong) taking time off school to study for the lsat.

If I knew then what I know now, I'd have taken a whole year to study for that sucker...
