about scoreitup and mark sacks

My name is Mark Sacks and I founded ScoreItUp LSAT Prep in 2008 after working as an instructor for a national LSAT Prep company, graduating from Harvard Law School, teaching the LSAT’s “legal reasoning skills” to thousands of University students, and scoring in the 99th percentile on the LSAT.

Even after teaching LSAT Prep to students like you for over two decades, I still vividly recall the stress of being in your shoes and studying for this critically important exam. I know that preparing for the LSAT with a part-time, student instructor who may have questionable teaching credentials and motivation levels is the last thing you need.

For that reason, and in stark contrast to the industry norm, I guarantee in writing the most important part of your LSAT Prep course: the instructor teaching it!  All your Live OnlineSelf Paced and 1-on-1 LSAT Prep lessons are guaranteed to be taught by me, the company owner. ScoreItUp’s courses are updated every year – we work with only real LSAT questions and the best LSAT Prep strategies on the market. I have devoted my entire career to teaching LSAT Prep, as well as working with the “legal reasoning skills” tested on the LSAT as a University professor and practicing attorney.

ScoreItUp’s past students started out just like you: in need of excellent LSAT Prep training to significantly improve their LSAT score, without the gimmicks. Fortunately, ScoreItUp students have achieved exceptional results, including (1) an outstanding +15 point average practice LSAT score increase, (2) a world record for student 180 LSAT scores, (3) enormous, merit-based scholarships to Top 10, regional and/or local law schools, and (4) LSAT score increases that sometimes equal or exceed 35 LSAT points (an approximate 88 percentile increase).* Countless ScoreItUp students have earned acceptance into the nation’s top legal institutions, including Harvard, Stanford, Columbia, Chicago, NYU, UC Berkeley, Virginia, Michigan, Penn, Duke, Northwestern, Cornell, Georgetown, UCLA, USC and UCI.

ScoreItUp’s unique instructor guarantee eliminates any concern you may have about getting an ineffective or inexperienced LSAT Prep instructor. It also avoids the confusion and inconsistencies that can occur when multiple instructors teach you the same material. Your “live online” courses with me will be entertaining and exceptionally thorough. Our live lessons will be reinforced by ScoreItUp’s supplemental video course and massive online document library.

My LSAT Prep teaching background and training include:

-personally teaching LSAT Prep to thousands of students (beginning before I went to law school!),

-routinely providing LSAT Prep workshops to all the top Universities in Southern California,

-developing and teaching over 50 law courses to undergraduate, graduate and working professional students at UCI, Chapman and CSUF (including UCI’s “Legal Reasoning and the Law” course),

-writing extensively on LSAT Prep and the law school admission process,

-creating all of ScoreItUp’s LSAT Prep course programs,

-working as an Advisory Committee member to Harvard University’s Admission Committee, and

-working with the legal reasoning skills tested on the LSAT at Harvard Law School, and as a University law professor, criminal prosecutor and former “BigLaw” civil litigator.

Your live online course will be taught by me in a lighthearted classroom environment designed to motivate you to succeed…and appreciate just how fun studying for the LSAT can be (yes, I did just say that!). Candidly, books and video-only courses don’t come close to the comprehensive training offered in my live ScoreItUp courses. ScoreItUp has an A+ rating with the BBB, and you are welcome to review student evaluations about my courses in Student Comments, Student Stories and yelp.com.
