The 3 months is a limit to take it once you are accepted, not how long it takes. It varies from 1 week to 6 weeks, greatly depending on what category you are, that you make no mistakes in your application and when they feel like getting to it.  
 
Study time is more like 200-250 hours, if you just do the bare minimum for the sake of passing the test, rather than understanding all the material. That means reading the most important parts of the MPEP, like 700, 2100 and PCT, along with knowing a few others. Also studying the 2002-2003 tests and memorizing the questions and answers on patentbarquestions(dot)com. Also, check the main post for more info.

If you are going to qualify with your undergrad degree, then I think your wait time will be faster from when you send in the application and when you hear back about being qualified.
 
I sent my information in before starting to study - then spent about almost a month and a half studying.  I was probably on the 200 ish hour side of things, but I can't quite remember.  I studied many on my own with the Bullseye Patent Bar Prep course at www(dot)patentbarexamprep(dot)com/gallery1(dot)html
 
Do you have a target date for when you want to take the exam?  By the time you receive your qualification letter, you have slightly less than 90 days to take the exam.
