Yep.  I'm still interested, but the forum format would be better for me because my availability is a bit weird, so I can't promise to be online when everybody else is.

Well, if there are no objections, we will officially be using tests 19-28.  The first test deadline will be posted on the forum.  As a side note, this is obviously NOT intended to be the only method of study.  Everyone who participates is HIGHLY encouraged to use at least a few other tests and prep books.  Once we get everyone together on the forum, we'll discuss times for the live chat, if we even decide to have a scheduled one.

after organizing and participating in more than one of these, i have to warn you that it's usually the case that *very* few keep up with any set test schedule. hell, even in prep courses, most everyone falls behind in homework. this leaves a lot of dead air and thumb twiddling and the group dies out as a result.

given that, i *strongly* suggest leaving the option to bring *any* question or problem in any given week to the group, leaving more recent tests until closer to the test date so as not to spoil them.

I'm up for it. I'll even do a local Portland-area one if anyone else is interested/in the area.

Hmm...Well, I suppose that we COULD do that (no schedule), it might be a bit better - I just thought that it would be a good way to keep everyone on the same page.  At any rate, the forum's up, and I'll take my first post-June LSAT and post any questions I've got over there.

you can certainly try a set schedule, i don't want to discourage you. i just wanted to let you have the benefit of my experience that while it works at the very beginning, the whole thing tends to break down over the long term -- a lot of people figure that of they don't do the assigned test, they may as well not bother participating.

also some people may be bound by a prep course schedule but still want to participate. you'd be eliminating them.

i'l pop in from time to time, with chats depending on days and times.

Just posted about a question about the June test - if anyone would like to help me work through it, I'd be most grateful.
