LSAT Prep Options: Get Prepped

Get Prepped LSAT PrepWe’re excited to initiate a series of interviews with various LSAT prep companies, exploring their approach and getting some tips for success. (If you’d like to be featured, let me know.)

Today, we’re talking with Patrick O’Malley of Get Prepped. Hi, Patrick!

Could you talk a bit about Get Prepped: What’s your philosophy? What type of instruction do you offer? How are you different from other LSAT prep courses?

Let me start with Get Prepped’s philosophy.

We don’t overcomplicate the test, we show students how to recognize the common patterns in the test and how to use the techniques to make the LSAT manageable.

Each student is unique!
One size does not fit all! Students come to us with varied backgrounds, learning styles, preparation and financial needs. We offer a wide range of study options that we can tailor to fit anyone’s situation:

  • Video Courses — Our very affordable video courses are wonderful for the busy student who needs the time flexibility so that they can manage their time well while receiving excellent instruction.
  • Tutoring — We’ve learned in our 13 years of experience with students that even tutoring courses need to be tailored to the student. Our one-on-one tutoring courses are designed to work either as a full course, or to complement a video course, or to help the student bust through their own unique preparation blocks…again, different options for each individual need.
  • Classroom Courses — Our classroom courses are structured with an optimized schedule of weekend, daytime classes. This gives the best results. Students do not need to sit through 20 to 40 hours of unnecessary course time which happens with some companies who run lengthy night classes. We focus on helping students master LSAT techniques and teaching them to recognize patterns and problem types

We are confident that our students’ scores will increase.
Our students get excellent teachers, affordable prices, and guaranteed higher scores, then they tell their friends; more than 9 out of 10 alums send their friends to us. We’re so confident, that we offer a 100% money back guarantee.

What type of student is most likely to benefit from taking a Get Prepped Course?

We love students who are committed, disciplined, and who are planning ahead for this important test. Sounds like the perfect student, right?

Well, most students aren’t perfect… although most students are of above average intelligence, they have family, financial, school and work commitments to manage. 

We can usually find a good match of student to one of our prep options.

Who would your course not be a good fit for?

No LSAT Prep course is going to work well for a student who is not engaged and committed to doing the prep work, especially the practice testing.

I’m getting ready to choose an LSAT course. What should I look for to ensure that I select one that is a good fit?

Know yourself, the time that you have to study, and have an idea of what your target LSAT score is. If you do this “homework,” call us to discuss your options. We’ve had lots of experience guiding students to great LSAT prep solutions.

When choosing an LSAT course, the one thing you shouldn’t over look is:
Look at who is teaching the course (our teachers are lawyers who have all scored well on the LSAT) and confirm that the course content uses only real, previously administered LSATs. Our teachers are the best, and they are backed by a company that has been teaching the LSAT since 1999.

How much time do you suggest students spend to prepare for their first LSAT? Can it be done on top of school / work?

No one fits into the same time-frame as we’ve all got different backgrounds, strengths and weaknesses. But, generally, the more time you have and the earlier you start the better.

Prep requires discipline and time-management. Undeniably, the prep time will put some strain on your schedule and on other obligations. Know this, but keep focused on your goal of a great LSAT score and know that your efforts will result in good prospects for admittance to a great school, and maybe even some good financial awards! It will be worth it in the end.

What are your three best tips for doing as well as possible on the LSAT?
  1. Plan ahead to your test date and make a study schedule.
  2. Learn the LSAT strategies and techniques necessary for success.
  3. PRACTICE! Take full-length LSATs, and simulate actual test-day environment as much as possible. Don’t just score your practice exam, evaluate it and understand why you missed a question, so you don’t make that error next time. Chart your progress! This is very encouraging as you see your score increasing it will help you get through your crazy schedule and…hey, maybe you’ll learn to love this test! (Our teachers do!)
