about scoreitup and mark sacks

“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 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.

My comprehensive, no-gimmicks LSAT Prep teaching style has led to unparalleled achievements of my students, including (1) a world record for student 180 LSAT scores, (2) enormous, merit-based scholarships to Top 10, regional and/or local law schools, and (3) double-digit 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.

By “cutting out the middleman,” my Live StreamSelf Paced and 1-on-1 courses offer you all the fundamental training provided in corporate LSAT Prep courses, but much more…and a significantly better value for your hard-earned money. The workshop-style lessons in my Live Stream courses are carefully tailored to highlight the most important and challenging LSAT Prep concepts, provide immediate feedback, and allow for plenty of live Q&A (including supplemental group-tutoring sessions).

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. (If you’d like, let’s schedule a FREE, no-obligation Zoom (or telephonic) meeting – I’d be happy to talk to you!)  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.

My live classes are taught 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. Here is a sample:

“Mark has a unique ability to explain complex concepts in a common sense way that anyone can understand and remember.” -Ana D.

“I was truly mind blown that someone could be so capable to teach such complex subjects this way.” – Mackenzie B.

“The money I spent on ScoreItUp is undoubtedly the best investment I have ever made.” – Robert M.

“Mark has a thoughtful and precise answer to any question you may have about the LSAT.”  – Aaron B.

“After ScoreItUp, I was able to do what I did not think was possible of me.” – Manuel E.

“You could not go a single day in Mark’s classes without laughing.” -Nadia J. 

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 “war stories,” hugely popular networking events (in-person or live-stream) and much more. To enroll or get more details, please visit Live Stream or Self Paced.

Let’s work together to get you into your dream law school, save you a ton of money and turn you into another ScoreItUp success story.
