I don't know if you already made a decision, but I would highly recommend Law School Bootcamp. I did it last summer before I started 1L and it was definitely very helpful. When everyone else just had a blank stare those first few weeks I actually knew what was going on, and it shows in my grades! If you want more info, Bootcamp is run by a company called Stratus Prep.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Law preview

I don't know about Law Preview but I had a great experience with Stratus Prep's Law School Bootcamp. The teacher Shawn went to Harvard Law School so he really knows his stuff and I felt like I was so much better prepared than everyone else in my classes during 1L. It's just nice having some idea what the profs are talking about, being familiar with the case studies already, knowing how to outline the right way, etc. And law school is so competitive because of the forced curve so being a step ahead of all your classmates is actually really helpful!

Law School Applications / Re: LSAT Prep Courses: Study before, or no?

Can you find another class in your area that starts earlier? A few of my friends who used Testmasters didn't get great results from it, so if there is a class with another company starting sooner, I would definitely consider that. I don't think studying on your own beforehand is always a bad idea, but if you're going to pay for a whole course, you don't want to waste time unlearning bad habits when you could be learning how to raise your score.

Recommendations / Re: Prefix on LSAC form

You could say "Mr." for the prefix, but then put their Masters as a suffix, like Mr. John Smith, M.B.A.

I think it's most important to just keep it simple and don't use any script fonts or colors to make it look fancy. Put the most relevant experience at the top. I actually got some pretty good resume tips by following the company Stratus Prep on Twitter (@StratusPrep). They do law school admissions tips every day.
