I took the LSAT in December of my junior year at college, scoring a 174. At that same time, I became president of my school's (a very small school in NJ) Pre-Law Society and created an LSAT club, where I taught the LSAT to students who could not afford a test prep company. I offered classes twice a week during my last two years at college.
I now attend NYU Law School. I have completed two years, and currently, I'm taking a year off to study languages. I've been LSAT-tutoring students for the last two years while in NYC. I really enjoy teaching this test, and I LOVE seeing people improve and do well.
- Numerous 10+ point increases. I had one client who was scoring in the low 140s who eventually scored a 158 on his real LSAT.
- A client who was PTing in the 165-168 ranged asked if I could help her break 170. After only 10 hours of instruction, she began breaking the 170 mark (wound up scoring a 172 on her real test).
