Frequently Asked Questions

How to Prepare for the LSAT

Show More

Preparing for the LSAT usually comes down to 3 paths, each with their strengths and weaknesses.

The first, and cheapest option is self-study. Typically students can spend under $500 and gain about 10 points from their first diagnostic practice test with this method, given they are self-motivated and use great resources.

The second option, which has a moderate cost, is taking a course. Usually students spend about $1,500 on these courses and get similar results to self-study; they gain about 10 points.

The final option, which is generally the most expensive, is private tutoring. Students typically spend $175/hr or more for a great tutor and reach total amounts of $2,500 – $5,000 to work with a private tutor. This route is certainly the most effective, with students seeing 20+ point increases from their first practice test.

How to Study for the LSAT

Show MoreStudying for the LSAT takes a few things to fall into place properly.
1. You must have allocated enough time to get a great increase. We typically recommend 3-5 months of studying with a minimum of 20hrs/wk during your studying.
2. You need to use the absolute best materials and methodology. Feel free to schedule a free 30-minute consultation with us to discuss your individual situation and get recommendations here.
3. You’ve got to work hard AND smart. You can take all the practice tests in the world, but if you don’t make meaningful adjustments between them you’ll find your score plateau pretty quickly.
4. You need to get your timing right. Most people could score very well on the test if it was untimed, unfortunately this is not the case. Make sure you allocate enough time and resources to getting your timing perfect before test day. Also, make sure the techniques you learn along the way are able to be scaled up to be used at pace on test day.

How to Pass the LSAT

Show MoreThe LSAT is not a pass/fail style test, so you can’t really pass it. The better you do, the better your opportunities for law school. It is scored on a scale of 120-180. Scoring in the 120s won’t be good enough to get into law school, nor will the 130s typically. The 140s will start to open some doors and the 150s you will be above the median (152) and have some good opportunities. The 160s will allow you to attend some great schools and the 170s will open the door at the most elite schools. The LSAT isn’t the only consideration in law school admissions, so the above is just a general guideline and students sometimes do buck the trends.

How to Start Studying for the LSAT

Show MoreYou should start studying for the LSAT by taking the June 2007, freely available diagnostic practice test under strict timed conditions. This will allow you to get acquainted with the test and to get a baseline score. Don’t worry, nearly everyone’s initial diagnostic is WAY lower than they were hoping but hard work and a great study plan can get you 20+ or even 30+ points on top of that diagnostic test score.

How to Study for the LSAT on Your Own

Show MoreSource the best self-study materials and spend 2-3 months mastering the concepts. Once you feel you’ve mastered the concepts then spend 2-3 months practicing timing using official LSAT practice sections and tests.

How Much Time to Study for the LSAT

Show More3-5 months is the typical time that students spend studying for the LSAT. During this period we recommend at least 20hrs/wk of studying to get the job done.
