Prep-Course Review: LSAT

LSATWhen it comes to LSAT prep, the reviews of different companies and courses seem to be mixed. Even after scouring a number of different blogs and forums, I wasn’t able to identify any clear front runners. That being said, Kaplan and TestMasters were two of the most frequently mentioned.

Kaplan’s most popular LSAT course is their in-person course, which starts at $1,399. It’s taught in seven 4-hour sessions of comprehensive instruction and three full-length in-class proctored practice tests. In addition to the in-class sessions, the course also offers access to Kaplan’s LSAT Channel, which is an online resource providing hundreds of hours of live workshops.


Writing the LSAT Anytime Soon?

barneyLSATIt is staggering how lightly some people take the LSAT. People look at me like I have a third eye when I tell them I’m already preparing for the October sitting. Four whole months to study for one test?! That’s way too much – said too many people, too often.

If you think about it, the LSAT is weighed equally with your cGPA by Law Schools most of the time, although a few measure the cGPA more heavily (and some don’t even look at the LSAT at all like McGill). With that in mind, it can be said that whatever length of time you’ve spent procuring an undergrad degree is equally important as the time you’ll spend studying for this ‘one test’.
