Comparison Table of the Major LSAT Prep Companies

We built this as a way to help determine which course is best for you based solely on the objective offerings.

We haven't done all of the classes, but we have taken a fair share of standardized tests. Our guess is that different courses have different strengths. One may be the best for going from a 145 to 160, while another is ideal for those looking to bump from 172 to 176.

The only way we can build these tools is to get information from you. If you take one, come back and let us know how it helped so we can use some nerd math (like Machine Learning AKA what Jarron paid a bunch of money to learn at MIT) to make recommendations for others.

"On-Demand Content" means that you get access to a bunch of stuff like videos, tools, and forums. These classes are typically the least expensive. The thing you do not get is a live teacher. Not having a teacher is not all bad because you can pause videos and take your time. Some of the companies also have forums or access to instructors you can email with specific questions.

"Live Courses - Online" are ones that are taught in real time by a real person. They are great for people who want to have a teacher and a very set schedule. Some people love being in a class and some think that it is too generic. They are a little more expensive than On-Demand Content.

COVID Note: Some of the companies below also offer in person classes in select cities. However, due to COVID there aren't as many as usual. Once things go back to normal, we will add a tab for "Live Courses - In Person"

Tutoring is exactly what it sounds like, 1-on-1 support. You pay per hour and pretty much always get a discount for buying more. Tutoring is definitely the most expensive option, but you get the most specialized support. If you are thinking about getting tutoring, but you can't pay for many hours, then the most important times are at the beginning of end of your studying. Beginning to make a plan, and towards the end to get specific instruction.

A at McKinney, waiting on Maurer. Do I R&R with games gone or go to McKinney and hope to transfer. 156, 3.4, nURM

If you're up for retaking that's probably the advice you'll mostly get
I'd really rather not take another year

Yeah don't go somewhere you want to transfer away from. Grades may or may not work out, transfers may or may not materialize, and aid may or may not be sufficient.
I still havent put down my nd one ah
im like rly scared to deposit at ND because it feels binding

does anyone have experience with applying as an indigenous international applicant
Ijustwannagetinman

Guys I just realized in my last LOCi to UCLA
Ijustwannagetinman
22:41
I listed a professor who posted on one of his blogs that he is leaving at the end of June in 2024
Ijustwannagetinman
22:41
but I didn't know that he posted that it was in ONE blog it wasn't on the UCLA website
Ijustwannagetinman
22:41
I didn't list him in my second LOCi he's just literally one of my favorite authors so I wrote about him is this devastating that I listed him??
22:49
i think ur okay i dont think they would expect u to know let alone know themselves
22:51
This is a risk of talking about specific professors (and my school's careers in law folks advised me against doing so in Why ___ essays for that reason) but I doubt they're going to gauge your entire interest in the school based on this
22:52
Ironically, you'll probably benefit if your reader is a bit cynical and assumes the "one of my favorite authors" bit is laying it on thick, but this person leaving is not actually a dealbreaker
22:52
(Which it does not sound like it is)
22:57
during my cycle (2020-21) I mentioned professors in many of my apps
22:58
I outperformed my numbers so I don't think its that bad of a tactic
22:58
I think you just need to sound credible
Ijustwannagetinman
23:15
I didn’t say he was one of my favorite authors I just cited UCLA’s first amendment center and said “led by professor volohk”
Ijustwannagetinman
23:15
But he’s leaving soon
Ijustwannagetinman
23:15
He happens to be one of my favorite authors, but I didn’t say that in the essay
Ijustwannagetinman
23:16
I just wanna go to UCLA so bad it makes my heart ache

how do transfers adjust socially typically

Go to the school that will pay for you to go. To do otherwise is a life altering error in judgment.
