“I’ve been working with Jeff Gardner since February 2020 to prepare for the July 2020 LSAT. I feel very confident that with Jeff’s help over the next month or so, I’ll be able to improve even more and get the 170+ score I’m looking for when test day rolls around. I can tell that Jeff genuinely cares about his students and wants them to succeed, and he’s very skilled in tailoring his tutoring to the individual needs of his students. I definitely wish I had worked with Jeff from the beginning and hadn’t wasted my time and money on a group prep course.”

The federal territory of Washington, D.C. is the capital city of the United States of America. The abbreviation D.C. stands for “District of Columbia” and alludes to an old moniker of the States, when America was romantically referred to as “Columbia” in reference to Christopher Columbus by early U.S. publications such as The Gentleman’s Magazine and Atlantic Magazine. Pictured as a strong, independent woman, Columbia was personified as Uncle Sam’s sister and later appeared in WWII-era propaganda posters promoting military enlistment and Victory Gardens. Though in America’s younger days, the government had been hosted by various municipalities including Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York City, it became clear that the physical location of the federal government would require a distinction from the jurisdiction of states themselves. The capital city was established when Congress passed the Residence Act on July 16,1790, when it was decided that the United State’s Capital City would be located along the Potomac River. The “Washington” part of the name came a year later, when our first President and preeminent Founding Father, George Washington, officially declared the site of D.C., just north of his own estate.

Known as “D.C.” or “the District” by locals and situated on just under seventy square miles of East Coast land purchased by the federal government from Maryland and Virginia in 1790, the city is a federal district and is not to be confused with the Northwestern state of Washington. Though not considered a state, the Capital has a larger population than two U.S. states (Vermont and Wyoming) and houses all three branches of the U.S. government: the Capitol (legislative branch), the White House (executive branch) and the Supreme Court (judicial branch). Although citizens of the city do elect a mayor, the capital city is ultimately under control of Congress, although ironically residents of D.C lack representation in Congress as the capital is not a state.

Considered by U.S. News as the #1 Best Historical City to visit in the United States, D.C. is home to numerous free public museums and important sites such as the White House, the distinctly recognizable residence of the President; the Capitol building, legendary home of U.S. legislature; the grand and dignified Lincoln Memorial; the striking and iconic 555-foot tall Washington Monument; and the world-renowned Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Visitors to D.C. flock to the National Cherry Blossom Festival in spring and to the National Mall, America’s most-visited national park, consisting of 146 acres of landscaped park, where many historical sites and monuments are located including the aforementioned sites.

As home of all three branches of the United States government, important historical sites and more embassies than any other city in the world, D.C. continually serves as the seat of American democracy. Washington, D.C. is the actual site where processes of our politics occur and is the city that represents, literally and metaphorically, the cherished ideals of our republic.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to Prepare for the LSAT

Show MorePreparing 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.
