    NYC is great, but it sure is expensive. I just moved into a studio that costs what a damn mortgage should, lol. But, if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.

    Texas is pretty darn awesome though! Good food, nice folks, and the cities I've seen are nice (Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston)

    OMG I totally couldn't have said it better! I was just talking to someone who lives in Colorado the other day about how lucky they are to have a daily view of mountains. Here we have either city buildings or flat land lol.

    Which part of Texas are in? I am interested in a study group in Dallas. Taking the December LSAT and haven't seen study groups yet. I am sure it is still early but can't hurt to start looking.

    Ok I'm sitting here at work literally LOLLLLLL so thanks for making my coworkers think I'm crazy.

    And yes its true @alyhobbs, @theLSATdreamer convinced me to try to get my PT scores high enough to take in December and just pop that LSAT cherry. It actually has been good motivation because I study a lot harder than I was when I was aiming for June 2018. So kudos to you friend!

    Hahaha that's awesome @theLSATdreamer! Nice that she has someone keeping her accountable.

    @tringo335 That's great that it is motivating you rather than adding more pressure. I was originally hoping to take the test in September but I wasn't really able to truly dedicate enough time to studying until the last month and a half. I didn't think less than 3 months was enough time for myself to be fully prepared.

  • theLSATdreamertheLSATdreamer Alum Member
    1287 karma

    So someone told me this weekend that to be as prepared as possible you need 240 hours of studying time not including 30-40 practice tests, however the review does count towards studying, so basicaly 4 months 2-3 hours daily plus 2 test a week.. anyone agree with this theory?
