Question About Doubling Down My Efforts For a 6-month study plan

Hi everyone! Hope everyone is foing okay during these difficult times and have all they need (or at least teh capacity to get what they need). I also hope you are practicng social distancing and takign advantage of all the streaming services available!

I have decided to take a gap year to really work hard to get the score I need and want before I apply to law school. I am planning to, ideally, register for the September and/or October LSAT(s). I'll have at least 6 months to study for this exam if I use April-May to go through the core curriculum again while doing online remote learning (with a potential pass/fail transcipt recording) and I will ideally start focusing on timed practice (PTs and sections) starting in June until the end of the summer and/or until I take the exam. I will be able to study full-time during the summer and potentially until I take the exam. I have not done any kind of studying since October of last year and none of the studying I have done in the last 6 months was consistent so it is safe to say I am starting from square 1, with some knwoledge of the lsta and curriculum.

I would like to get some thougths on a few things:

  • Reviewing core curriculum again--how do i get the most out of it?
  • Taking a diagnostic that is not June 2007 (since I already have) but an exam that is close to the rigor of what I would expect on the more recent exams
  • I would like to allot at least 25-30 PTs to take under-timed conditions--- any ideas on the best batch?
  • Foolproofing--when and for how long (this is subjective of course but please share thoughts and experiences). Obviosuly you foolproof games that you do after PTs if you did not go - 0 but outside of that, what is the best and most efficient way to foolproof The Bundle(also subjective but see above;))?
  • how many PTs per week when I start timed practice?
  • The best time to start timed practice (regardless of my timeline)?
  • Who has done a study plan similar to the one I am doing?
  • How to avoid/deal with burnout?
  • Anything else I should keep in mind and/or incorporate?
  • I am a shooting for a 165 or better and have averaged in the high 140s and low 150s in the past (fewer than ten PTs), but that may prove to be irrelevant given my time off. Anything is possible imo so please tell me how you do this--ups and downs and all if you had a similar study plan and were in a similar scoring range.
