The Nth Degree course is designed for first-time test takers or the “persistently struggling.”  This is a small course with lots of individual interaction.  Student feedback indicates that it is much easier to learn and improve here than at the big-name programs like Kaplan, Blueprint, TestMasters, or Manhattan Prep.  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.  Lessons go beyond categorizing questions by “problem type” and isolate the cognitive skills that are being tested.

Unlike the founders of Blueprint or TestMasters, Scot actually has a law degree.  In 2018, we are offering a new Pre-Law Workshop to give you a head start on law school and a legal career.  We will discuss this during the LSAT class.

LSAT lessons may be booked hour-by-hour if you can not make the full course.

Scot’s score on the LSAT was 171 (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.

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.
