PRIVATE September Study Group

Hello all,

Please review the information below and if interested, leave a comment and message me directly and you will be considered for the group.

I will be starting a private September study group. This study group will be unique and different from the official 7sage study groups. I’m composing this post in search of 6-8 dedicated LSAT students who are willing to meet on a weekly basis. THIS WILL BE YOUR TEAM FOR THE NEXT 4 MONTHS. I want to establish a close knit team based study group to hold each other accountable, keep each other honest, and provide each other a friendly but competitive push when needed. I will be selecting students from the community to join our group. The smaller than average group size will allow for a more personal and efficient studying atmosphere.

The study group will be reviewing LR on a weekly basis. We will gauge interest with RC and LG in order to determine if those will be reviewed.

Requirements:

Must be able to meet almost every Saturday night from now until September. If you are thinking “what the hell, I hang out with my hubby on Saturday nights” or “Saturdays are my drinking nights.” This is not the study group for you! I understand occasionally there will be obligations such as work, weddings, or something of the like. This is not a problem, and we fully understand. But you must be present when possible. Meetings will be at 7pm EST on Saturdays.

Must be dedicated to taking the assigned PT for the week, and must be able to work on problem areas during the week to ensure you are ready to take the PT for the following week. The only exception to this rule is if you have not been able to fully understand and address problem areas from the previous test. I believe sticking to an assigned PT schedule without properly working on problem areas is a poor way to approach the LSAT.

Must have basic LSAT knowledge including but not limited to: question types, identifying conclusions/premises, conditional statements, et cetera.

Must be finished with the CC.

Must be motivated and driven.

Must be in a quiet place to review. Do not be at a busy starbucks or your local cafe.

Must be able to download the discord app. We will be using this app to keep an open dialogue throughout the week.

Must have access to a computer and a microphone. Apple iphone headphones will usually do the trick. We will not be using GOTOMEETING like the other 7sage groups. Therefore, there will be no phone line to call in from so you must be able to communicate by other means. If this changes, I will keep you guys posted.

NOT REQUIRED:

A certain PT score is not required. Study groups work best if there are members on different levels. We are happy to take the 140 scoring student under our wings.

You are not required to take the September LSAT. Although, which PTs we take will be determined with September in mind.

How will you determine who is in the private study group?

We will be selecting from members who have posted below and messaged me directly. Our goal is to ensure the best possible score come September and to create the best studying dynamic for all of us. I, and one other, will keep these in mind when determining who should have access to the group.

I will notify those selected by the end of the week. We will hold an orientation this weekend to discuss testing assignments, which communication apps to download, and any other questions or concerns anyone has.

    I sense a very legitimate study group about to form! Thanks for doing this :)
    @everyone who fits the criteria, you'll be in good hands with Jknauf. He has the credentials to successfully run an LSAT study group and has been helping many 7sagers along the way.

    Man I'd love to join this group but Saturday night is about the only time of the week that I won't commit to. No drinking for me but it is the best time for me to take a break since I study full-time. I do wish this group luck and I would absolutely join another one.

    I think this is a great idea! The open BR calls are awesome. However, it is also great to have smaller groups who meet on a regular basis and keep each other motivated and on task. This is a great benefit that reminds me of physical therapy. The fear of disappointing my physical therapist pushed me to do my daily exercises even when they caused me discomfort. The LSAT is not always fun, but it is much easier when you have a solid group of people to work with and learn from.

    I look forward to seeing more groups like this in the future!

    Hi all, thank you for your interest in the study group! I'm working to finalize the list and I will be messaging those who I have chosen sometime today with further instruction. If you do not receive a message, please join the open 7sage groups. If things do not go accordingly, I will be removing members and searching for new candidates based on your interest here. Due to an overwhelming amount of interest, I must turn away quite a few people who really seem like they would be excellent study partners. I encourage all of you to reach out to one another and form different groups.

    Good luck in your studies and I wish you the best.

    P.S. I deliberately wrote the instruction at the top of the post to say "post here AND message me". I did this to better see who reads closely and follows instructions. 95% of you guys failed this test lol
