lsat tutoring review from Raquel

“Incredible. John makes you feel as if you have a personal Tudor guiding you every step of the way. He is such a kind guy. His logic game course is clear and helpful. I encourage it!”

“I worked with Jeff Gardner for 5 months and have nothing but good things to say about him and Odyssey test prep books. I gained 13 points during my 6 months with Jeff! Jeff was very knowledgeable about question types.”

“Dave is an awesome tutor! He broke down the exam in a way that made sense and gave me great test taking strategies, which gave me the confidence to tackle the exam on test day.”

“Before starting lessons with Dave from Odyssey Prep I was really struggling with the LSAT. I had been studying on and off for over a year and a half, had taken both online and in person prep courses, and sat for the LSAT twice, scoring a 163 and 167.”



New Jersey is a state in the Northeastern United States, famously bordered by New York to the north and Pennsylvania to the south. It is the 4th smallest state in the entire US, yet is the most densely populated. A highly urbanized state with a transportation system being one of the busiest and most extensive in the world, hundreds of thousands of the residents in its cities commute to and from New York and Pennsylvania everyday. Native Americans occupied the region for almost 3,000 years before the first Europeans arrived in the early 17th century. It was colonized by the Dutch and Swedish and later seized control by the English. They called the region “Province of New Jersey,” taken after the largest of the Channel Islands, which is Jersey. The state is one of the 13 original states of the US and was the site of many important battles in the American Revolutionary War. In the 19th century, New Jersey’s “Big Six” cities contributed greatly to the country’s Industrial Revolution. With its strategic location in the Northeast, the state grew rapidly in terms of the economy, trade, and infrastructure by the second half of the 20th century.

As of today, New Jersey is considered to be the 2nd-wealthiest state in the US by median household income. Furthermore, as of 2020, the state was home to the country’s highest number of millionaires per capita. A state that offers miles and miles of coastline, some of its cities are famed for their beaches and boardwalks. In fact, New Jersey is even credited for inventing the boardwalk and has the most number of boardwalks among all 50 states in the US. Almost every city or town along the Jersey Shore has a boardwalk of their own. Speaking of boardwalks, one of the most popular attractions in the state is the Atlantic City Boardwalk. Located in the “Gambling Capital of the East” of Atlantic City, the boardwalk is a popular destination among tourists for its beaches, shopping, dining, recreational activities, entertainment, and water parks. Ocean City is another worthwhile destination in the state, with 8 miles of shiny ocean and bay beaches, amusements parks, and of course, its 2.5-mile boardwalk. Among other notable places to visit in New Jersey include the wine country of Cream Ridge, the famous and bustling beaches of Jersey Shore, as well as theme parks and amusement parks most notably the Six Flags Great Adventure and Wild Safari.

In terms of education, New Jersey is one of the top states for the best colleges. Its public school system is also ranked consistenly as one of the top-ranked of all states. In fact, New Jersey is home to Princeton Univerity, an ivy league school that boasts of being the number one school in the US list of National Universities 2021 edition. Other notable schools include the Rutgens University – New Brunswick, the flagship campus of New Jersey’s state university and the Stevens Institute of Technology. Morevoer, there are two top law schools in the state, namely: Seton Hall College of Law, which is the top in the state and the only private law school in New Jersey; and Rutgers Law School, offered at their Camden and Newark campuses. Though New Jersey is one of the smallest states in the country, it packs a punch in providing the best education for its students, plenty of beaches and natural parks, and hailed for being one of the wealthiest states in the nation.

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.
