Studying for the LSAT / Re: For those of you who have tutors
« on: October 23, 2007, 02:35:37 PM »
I've seen private tutors from 30$ to 60$ and if they work for PS, TM, or kaplan they are usually over 100$.

The one I use charges me 50$/hr

Thats sound advice.  I took a class and wanted to shoot myself when the instructor had to slow down for people who couldn't get questions that I thought were easy, as I'm sure there were people who wanted to slap me when I stopped the class to ask a question that everyone else thought was easy.

Exactly my point.  I've slowed the class down too but after taking the full length course I realized that I must of wasted double digit hours listening to explanations I didnt need to hear.

All the courses are a waste of time.  You already took a course and you know what your weaknesses are.  Find a tutor that will focus on your weaknesses.  You already know that a class focuses on everyones weaknesses and when it is over youve wasted hours.

Skip the course.  If your motivated enough to study on your own they are a waste of money.  Get a great tutor and spend your money wisely.  A tutor will focus on your weaknesses.  A class focuses on everyones weaknesses whether they are yours are not and in the end you will waste hours of time and alot of money.

Read my other posts I've elaborated on this in the past.

MG,

I know how you feel.  I'm not in the same range as you but had the same problem.

I have a hypothesis that people tend to score apprx 10 points higher on their real test than their diagnostic take or give about 5 points and tend to score towards the bottom  of their practice range.

I'm going to just leave it at... your hypothesis doesnt apply to me.

It depends on where your located.  I've seen some listed on craigs list.  Local law schools or universities would be another possibility.  Then again you might request PMs from people on LSD by letting them know where your located.

Skip the courses.  Find a tutor.  It is the best way to spend your money.  A tutor will focus on your weaknesses while a class will focus on everyones and you will waste many hours on your strengths.  If you want a more elaborate explanation check out my other posts on this subject.
