When should I start prepping for the LSAT?

Alright, here's the deal. I'm a freshman right now who is in the process of being able to work as an NCAA Compliance Officer, with that being said I need my JD. I've planned on doing this for a fairly long time and am working diligently to do so. I'm a very solid student, 3.8 first semester GPA but am unsure of when I should begin prepping. When did current/former law school students began prepping for the LSAT? Thanks!

Not a law student, or even a college student for that matter (Senior in Highschool, just accepted to Penn State). I would assume that you should start prepping for the LSAT late junior year/early senior year. If you start too early, there is no way you're going to remember all of the information you studied. If you'd like to get a jump start, why not grab an old book(s) and read through it. Early prep is never bad, but don't start now and expect to remember everything you read three years from now.

Take everything I said with a grain of salt, I have no experience in the subject but still wanted to offer some insight on it.

This. Right here, the LSAT is mostly logic based so its not somwthing your brain will have a hard time storing for a long time. Most logic games are committed to Long Term memory almost immediately after the idea is realized or understood.

I took the MCAT and did pretty well so i might have decent advice. i took a prep class (highly recommended, mine was princeton review) over my junior year summer. your summer will suck and if you're like me and a ****in boss, you'll be studyin at least 6 hours a day every ****in day. 6 hours would be a small studying day, i frequented the 7-10 hour schedule but i go to johns hopkins and have terrific work ethic. good luck man, that test could possibly be the hardest thing you ever do. at least i know that about the MCAT

I didn't start prepping until about 6 months prior to the exam. I personally wouldn't recommend shelling out the $1500+ for a prep course, but it also depends on where you're looking to go. If you're wanting to score in the 170+ range, then it may be worth it. I knew what schools I wanted to get into and geared my studying to their average rate (160+).

I used this - Powerscore. Got the three Bibles and the respective workbooks. Was more than adequately prepared.

I'm considering a lot of T2 schools with "average ranges" of about 154-160. Does that make any difference?

My school's average was something like a 156 and I made that with the study habits described above. It really just depends on the person, I suppose. If you can sit down and force yourself to soak up the materials without having someone look over your shoulder, I wouldn't worry about the prep course. P

I'd recommend a course only within a year of the LSAT. However, I would suggest starting to study now. An occasional practice section under time constraint and with a review afterward will work wonders.

I took a course and it seemed to help. My LSAT score was 7 points higher than the score on my first practice test. Definitely helped me.

I started a year after I was done with college about 6 months before I took the test but didn't end up starting law school until 3 years after college. If I were you I wouldn't worry about it too much now enjoy college and start practicing (LSAT prep isn't really studying after all) about 6 months before you take the test. If you think the way the test wants you to its not incredibly difficult if not practice a lot.
