How far are you?

It depends on what you're up against. I ended up regularly using all but one of the characters.

When you could add Mitsuru, I just started ignoring Junpei. Not only is he a dick in the social stuff but he always seemed useless in combat too.

I did the exact opposite. To me, Mitsuru is just too smart and perfect, but too much of a wuss to do anything in battle.

For the most part, I went Yukari, Akihiko, Junpei, but Akihiko or Junpei would get switched out for the Dog or Aigis sometimes.
Whatever you do-- have Yukari.

Don't bother with Shinji....for...um...reasons which will become obvious.

I preferred to look at what gaps I may have had with my Personas' elemental skills.  However, I tended to go with Yukari, Mitsuri and Akihiko for most of the game then after she had her epiphany, I replaced Akihiko with Aigis.  She gets a lot of really good support skills late in the game.  Yukari is a great healer plus has a wicked wind skill set.  Mitsuri's ice attacks become the most powerful (especially with a ring boost) earliest I think.  And, Akihiko's strike attack is a weakness with a lot of the shadows found in Tartarus. Don't underestimate the dog either.  I think he's actually more useful than Junpei, although he gets to be harder to level up later in the game.

I'm using Aigis, Kono and Takeba at the moment, just hit Part 2 of block 3. And I'm flying through.

i'm in december now i ended up using akihiko, junpei and yukari. i would have used mitsuru but everytime she's in my party she spams status effects on the enemy which hardly ever work regardless of what tactics i tell her to use.

Mistsuru loves her Tentarafoo. :)
Set her to full assault. That should take care of that problem.

That's pretty much what I did, too. In addition, I'd do Mitsuru, and I can't say the same for Junpei. My party ended up as Yukari, Mitsuru, and Akihiko.

I used the entire cast throughout the game. And used specific ones against bosses depending on the weaknesses and such. I finished the game with everyone at level 74 and 75.

I did the same thing. I then booted Misturu as soon as I could because of her horrible battle tactics. My "A" team is Koromaru, Akihiko, and Yukari. Koromaru is my personal favourite character in the game; both him and Akihiko do critical damage toenemies all the time for me. And Yukari is just an awesome healer when she isn't getting killed >.< I also switch in Yukari for Ken when I need extra electricity or when there are lots of enemies weak to light, that way I still have one healer.
