What is the weekly time commitment for an intensive course?

Our intensive courses are thorough but highly efficient. The approximate total time commitment for engaging in all activities - tutorials, skill-builders, high-yield review sessions, reading and practice - for each type of intensive program are given below.

  • 4-Week Intensive: 7 days per week, ~6 hours per day, but ~8 h on Full-Length practice exam days. Because of the large time commitment, these programs are usually held in the summer or over winter break.

  • 8-Week Intensive: 5 study blocks per week, ~3 hours per study block + longer Full-Length practice exam days.

  • 14-Week Intensive:  3 study blocks per week, ~3 hours per study block + longer Full-Length practice exam days.
