“I want to pay more and get less.” If those are the words you live by, you’ve come to the wrong place! My name is Mark Sacks and I founded ScoreItUp LSAT Prep in 2008 after (1) working as an instructor for a national LSAT Prep company, (2) graduating from Harvard Law School, (3) teaching law courses to thousands of University students, and (4) scoring in the 99th percentile on the LSAT.
The unparalleled achievements of my students include a world record for student 180 LSAT scores, and double-digit LSAT score increases that sometimes are as high as 35 LSAT points (an approximate 88 percentile increase).* Countless ScoreItUp students have earned (1) enormous merit-based scholarships to “Top 10,” regional and/or local law schools, and (2) acceptance into the nation’s top legal institutions, including Harvard, Stanford, Columbia, Chicago, NYU, UC Berkeley, Virginia, Michigan, Penn, Duke, Cornell, UCLA, USC and UCI.
By “cutting out the middleman,” I offer you all the fundamental training provided in corporate LSAT Prep courses, but much more…as well as a significantly better value for your hard-earned money. It’s literally as simple as that. See Top 15 and read “How SIU Classes Work” in Course Information for more details.
Also, 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 LSAT Prep lessons are taught by me, the owner of ScoreItUp. Part-time student instructors, who may have questionable teaching credentials and motivation levels (and who may not have a law school degree), are not used. My LSAT Prep teaching experience and legal reasoning training includes:
-personally teaching LSAT Prep to thousands of students for well over a decade,
-routinely providing LSAT Prep workshops to all the top Universities in Southern California,
-teaching over 50 law courses to undergraduate, graduate and working professional students at UCI, Chapman and CSUF,
-writing extensively on LSAT Prep and the law school admission process,
-creating all of ScoreItUp’s LSAT Prep course programs, and
-working with the legal reasoning skills tested on the LSAT at Harvard Law School, and as a University professor, criminal prosecutor and “BigLaw” civil litigator.
Candidly, I do not believe you will find an instructor anywhere with more depth of LSAT Prep teaching experience and expertise, or a greater desire to help you succeed. ScoreItUp has an A+ rating with the BBB, and you are welcome to review independently verifiable student evaluations about my courses at yelp.com or in Student Comments. Here is a sample:
“Most helpful course I have ever taken in my life.” – Ashley D.
“There is no one I’d trust more than Mark when it comes to preparing for the LSAT.” – Ben M.
“The teaching technique was phenomenal.” – Jacquelyne D.
“After ScoreItUp, I was able to do what I did not think was possible of me.” – Manuel E.
“Mark’s expertise on how to master the LSAT is matched only by his great sense of humor.” – Kyle P.
“Mark, simply put, is an amazing teacher.” – Robyn L.
“Trust me, you will not find another LSAT Prep course remotely as good as ScoreItUp.” – Randy T.
“You could never go a day in Mark’s classes without laughing.” – Nadia J.
Well-taught classroom courses have huge advantages over self-study, but instructors vary in quality. And national courses typically offer only a small fraction of the in-class training you receive in my courses. If you appreciate the importance of the LSAT and are open to taking your course in Orange County, I can offer you a far more comprehensive, thorough and effective LSAT Prep course. Video courses and tutoring options with me (in-person or by Skype/telephone) also are available.
And finally, a personal note: I vividly recall the stress of being in your shoes, studying for this critically important exam. But I do not believe hard work and having fun are mutually exclusive. Your rigorous LSAT Prep lessons will be supplemented by nightly “war stories,” designed to reinforce LSAT Prep concepts, keep the classroom environment lively and entertaining, and show you how exciting “life as a lawyer” can be. Hugely popular networking events – allowing you to meet practicing lawyers, law students and other pre-law students – also will be part of your ScoreItUp LSAT Prep experience, if you wish to attend.
To enroll in a ScoreItUp course with me, please go to Classroom (live courses) or Online (video courses). If you have any questions or simply want to get to know me before enrolling, please contact me. Let’s work together to figure out the best way to address your law school goals today. Thanks for taking the time to read this – it would be a privilege to work together with you, help you bring the LSAT to its knees, and turn you into another ScoreItUp success story.
