frequently asked questions

Coronavirus update and ScoreItUp’s “live stream” courses: The coronavirus is a significant challenge for all of us – please take care of yourself and family. The safety and well-being of my students, their families, and society at large is a top priority of mine. So is providing ScoreItUp students with exceptional LSAT Prep. Fortunately, ScoreItUp has made LSAT Prep lemonade out of lemons: I’m now offering you the terrific additional option of “live stream” courses with me (they are simple, fun and easy-to-use!).  ScoreItUp’s “live stream” courses (via Zoom) provide all the benefits of:

(1) “live” courses, including structure and the ability to ask questions and interact directly with your instructor, and

(2) “online” courses, including the ability to prep from the comfort, safety and convenience of your own home, anywhere in the world.  

My live courses currently are being taught “live stream” until we can return together to a physical classroom.  After that, ScoreItUp will be offering (1) “live” courses in Orange County, and (2) “live stream” courses worldwide. For more details, please email me at mark@scoreitup.com and/or check back here for more details. Let’s keep everyone safe and healthy…and simultaneously get you prepared to destroy the LSAT!

Please see below for the answer to some  commonly asked questions about my ScoreItUp LSAT Prep courses. If you have  additional questions, please do not hesitate to email me at mark@scoreitup.com. I look forward to hearing from you!

How do I enroll?

Please go to Classroom (for live course options) or Online (for online course options).  Select the course you want and you will be guided through the process to the “Checkout” station.  Fill in the information and you’re done!  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at mark@scoreitup.com. You can pay by check, cash or online with a credit card, debit card or PayPal account. Payment plans can be arranged, if necessary.

How is ScoreItUp able to offer more and charge less?

That’s an easy one! By having the company owner teach the classes, as opposed to relying upon part-time student instructors, ScoreItUp “cuts out the middleman.” First, that allows me to offer you more hours of classroom instruction than any competitor (if you read the fine print, you’ll see that some companies include “online hours” in their live course hour totals!).  Second, it avoids the concern of hourly instructors with questionable legal reasoning skills, University-level teaching experience, and/or motivational levels. Third, your money isn’t spent on recruiting, hiring, training, replacing, re-recruiting, re-hiring, and re-training hourly instructors, and all the paperwork processing that goes along with that. Those savings are passed directly back to you in the form of better prices, more substantive instruction and more classroom hours!

Where can I get more information about ScoreItUp’s courses?

I teach ScoreItUp’s live classes year-round in Orange County, as well as “live stream” courses.  The live and “live stream” courses also include the online video course, as well as detailed admission advice (personal statements, the LSAT’s Writing Sample, etc.). ScoreItUp’s 24/7 online video class is available anytime and anywhere, from the comfort of your own home.  You can go to Classroom to find the dates and times of my live and/or “live stream” classes. Please go to Course Information for a detailed description of the content and prices of the live and online video courses, and the variety of options offered.

Which length course should I take?

If you are taking a live or “live stream” course, I recommend taking ScoreItUp’s full-length “double” or “triple” course.  If you can’t start when that course begins, take the “single” course. ScoreItUp’s online video course options are based on the length of time you would like online access – you get all the same “goodies” with any online option, so it’s just a question of whether you want 1-month, 3-month, or 9-month access.  Whichever option you choose, I believe you will find my live, “live stream” and online video courses to be extremely helpful! For more details, please go to Course Information.

What is ScoreItUp’s refund policy?

You may receive a full refund of the live course fee if I receive written notice (e-mail notice is fine) of the cancellation at least fourteen (14) calendar days prior to the first meeting of the your live course (and before receiving a password for online access).

What if I have individual questions or wish individual tutoring?

In my live and “live stream” courses you will have extensive opportunities to ask questions during lessons, and to e-mail questions to me during the course. If you are taking my live, “live stream” or online video course you can purchase supplemental tutoring (in person, “live stream” or telephonically) at a reduced rate.

How can I compare ScoreItUp’s courses to the competition?

Please go to Course Comparison to see how ScoreItUp’s courses, instruction and prices compare to the competition as a result of “cutting out the middleman.” There will be one word to describe the difference: “WOW!”

How do I purchase additional LSATs beyond the ones already included?

You probably won’t need it, considering all of the practice LSATs I provide you in my live courses! Also, because I give you physical copies of the exams and answers, you don’t “lose access” after the course is over.  However, if you want even more practice LSATs, I can assist you in getting additional practice LSATs for a nominal price. Please contact me at mark@scoreitup.com for more details.

Will I be harmed by taking ScoreItUp in addition to another preparatory course?

There clearly are better and worse ways to prepare for the LSAT.  If you weren’t satisfied with your prior LSAT Prep experience, please take a look at ScoreItUp’s courses – numerous students have done exactly that, and consistently state that they are very glad they did!
