I don't think Okay softs include two internships with the AG, president of multiple clubs on campus, a research assistant, and more.

Thank you! I did some research and first focused on untimed accuracy, then doing individual sections in 35 minutes, and finally simulating the full five sections under time constraints. I used Powerscore books for LR and LG, and studied with a partner on a set schedule to keep myself accountable. Good luck!
