Does anyone have a study plan for the Nov LSAT for someone still in school?

I was able to spend hours the past summer doing my LSAT prep, but now that I am back in school full time I have a really demanding academic schedule as well. Does anyone have any tips on what or how you should pace yourself while in school?

    I recommend everyone in school, esp with demanding academic schedules, to study after they graduate and work. Your main focus should be maintaining your GPA.

    This is a fine line to walk for sure. There are a finite number of hours in a day. What you are attempting has been done, but will always be difficult. Depending whether you are at the PT stage of your prep, I would say 1 fresh PT strictly timed per week along with thorough review and supplemental drilling 4-5 days per week, with 1 day per week of no LSAT should suffice. This should work out to roughly 1.5-2 hours per day of quality review/drilling and roughly 3-4 hours of work on the PT day. Try to avoid burnout by not pushing too much progress into a certain amount of time.

    Best of luck moving forward, don't hesitate to reach out with any further concerns

    I have a 4.0 GPA and I already sent some of my applications in. I am going to law school in Fall 2019, but thanks for your input. Is there anyone left on this forum still in school?

    I'm in my senior year of undergrad. My plan is to either wake up early and study before class/work or study in between breaks. Obviously, weekends will be dedicated to studying but I'm also making a point to throw in going to the gym in between it all! PM me if you want details :)
