Seriously, I bought the Trainer in February 2015 and I have no idea what happened. Time just flew by and I was so focused on work and undergrad classes. Mike, I want to take the LSAT sometime soon. My study habits are, jumping right into the work and reading instructions later (yes, I’m the type of person that assembles things before reading any instructions). I’m thinking about using your LSAT Trainer Question Breakdown and tackling the question types head on and learn my weaknesses/mistakes as I go. Is that a bad idea? or should I just stick with a Study Schedule? I would like to test sometime in 2016, but if I need to focus on studying for a year, I’ll do it.
I’m looking at graduating with a 3.77 GPA, and after hours of online research, I have found a few articles that advise to score in the 75th percentile if one has a “low” GPA for T14 schools. My goal is a 175 (I know, I know, I’m dreaming) but I want to do this…

Happens to all of us —
If you want to just jump into some practice problems, go right ahead — take a pt or two, drill some diff q types, whatever u want —
But at some point, I do recommend you circle back and study in a more organized fashion —
And remember that at the end of the day, in order to score at that sort of level (and why can’t you get there?), you need to be very, very mentally disciplined — you cannot get such a high percentage of q’s correct in such a limited amount of time unless you are very good at focusing in on the right concerns and thinking about them in correct/efficient ways —
It’s much easier to develop this mental discipline with a properly organized study plan — that certainly doesn’t mean you have to use a study plan I’ve created/suggest, but it does mean that whatever u plan, you try to organize your work with the goal of trying to attain greater and greater mental discipline —
One final nudge — I suggest that whenever you have a free hour, go ahead and open up the Trainer and just read the first chapter — I promise — it’s not so bad —
