True or False: In order to do your best on the LSAT, you must spend big money on a mega-corporate program like Kaplan, Blueprint, Testmasters, or Manhattan.
Student feedback indicates that it is much easier to learn LSAT skills and improve LSAT scores one-on-one at Nth Degree than at the “name” programs. Nth Degree is built on the unique experience and talents of just one instructor, so the costs are low and the quality is consistently high. Tutoring at Nth Degree costs $55 – $75 / hr, which is approximately half the rate at Blueprint. Lessons go beyond “categorizing” questions by type, and actively isolate the cognitive skills that are being tested.
Scot’s score on the LSAT was 171 (98th – 99th percentile). You can verify this with his LSAT score report here. He is also a 99th percentile test-taker on the SAT, ACT, GRE, and GMAT. A professional educator since 1996, he is a former top-rated instructor on RateMyProfessor.com and has been tutoring the LSAT since 2001.
Unlike the founders of Blueprint or TestMasters, Scot actually has a law degree. He can help you with law school admissions, pre-law-school tutorials, legal career advice, and even law-school assignments and bar exam preparation. Many students have successfully supplemented their group classes or online courses of study with one-on-one lessons.
The Nth Degree Philosophy
At Nth Degree, you will focus on the substance of the exam, not just the procedure. Do not be too taken in by courses trying to convince you that you can ace the LSAT (or any standardized exam) just with procedural tips / tricks / gaming the exam. (“Read the question stem first” is NOT a secret recipe for success!). These exams are designed to reward students who
- Are well read
- Are highly literate in English and can read with 100% comprehension, and
- Have solid command of logical principles
The Nth Degree course takes the exam seriously by
- Examining the obstacles to reading comprehension and how to work through them
- Fostering vocabulary retention and careful reading of information-dense material
- Teaching complex material as information that can be parsed into small simple parts
- Understanding the difference between right and wrong answers
- Isolating the cognitive skills tested on the Logical Reasoning section.
- Maximizing YOUR score by working at the speed that’s best for you.
