With 34 days left (that's 5 full weeks before "LSAT Saturday") I wanted to ask what everyone's study habits and schedules look like in order to give the 7sage September LSAT community a feeling of belonging, in the sense that there's more than one person here who is routinely sleeping at X:o'clockPM, waking up at Y:o'clockAM, and taking Z amount of PTs a week. It's easy to feel discouraged as time winds down.

What time do folks sleep and wake up? How often are you taking PTs in a week? How many days are you resting? What else do you do when you aren't studying? And any other routines and habits regarding your LSAT study schedule will be much appreciated. Thanks :)

    I've done most of the rough work... as of now, I've done 3 PT's. I am aiming for about 3 - 4 PTs a week (5 in the 2nd week) and BR, etc... m scoring in the 165 to 172 range and I would like to fine tune it to the upper part of that range... 3PTS this week - 39, 40, 41; 5 the week after that - 42, 56,57,58,59; 3 the week after that - 60,61,62; 4 the week after that 63,64,65,66; 2 the week after that, 69,70 and then spend 2 days with plenty of games and timed drilling of weak areas.

    I am taking pt 66-72, and retaking all of them to try to learn as much as possible from the newer tests. I have already taken 44-65. My 5 test average is 175(excluding retakes, of course)

    Say anyone got tips for RC timing.. that is my water loo... I have good accuracy... but on the later tests i.e. the ones after 36, I am missing an entire passage... while games was my Achilles heel in the last administration.. It seems that this time RC has reared its ugly head...

    @nilesh S have you tried the memory method? i would say keep practicing. i think you can pull it up by test day for sure!

    i'm eating super healthy (like, super healthy - theres a great food plan that has very limited sugar and is mostly fruits, veggies, slow-digesting carbs and protein), limiting social interactivity and getting plenty of sleep. I generally have been waking up at 8:30, doing a giant protein/fruit smoothie + oatmeal for breakfast, then doing some morning activities like going to some appointments (to help me get awake and not stay in bed), and I start studying around 11 until whenever i get tired at night. I take mental breaks if needed, and break for meals or to go for a walk. I'm usually in bed by 11pm or midnight. The two weeks before the test, I'll be waking up at 6:00am. And the two days before the test, i'll be doing absolutely nothing except maybe a mindless movie marathon or something super relaxing. No appointments, no events, no studying.

    My PT plan is what someone recommended in one of the lessons: Do 2 PTs in one day. The next day, blind review in the morning/afternoon, then go over the relevant lessons in the evenings.

    I found it difficult to PT and blind review in the same day - not because of time but because doing the test and understanding what i did wrong seemed to took a lot of my mental energy, and i rarely remembered where i went wrong - so i'm excited to try this method instead, and hopefully work on timing/exposure to materials as well. The mental break of 8 hours of sleep before blind review should help, too.

    @turnercm thanks for that... I was beginning to panic a little... I'll just do a ton of passages before the actual thing...
