However, the question does come up:
Is it because Harvard kids are smarter or just rich kids who can afford tutors?
Probably in between.....
Also interesting: Touro's average is above the 75th percentile for its law school - I believe it's the only school on the list to have this.
Smarter. No one needs a tutor/course to prep for the LSAT. In most cases it probably doesn't even make a big difference from self prep.
You're kidding yourself if you don't think a higher % of kids from Harvard take classes, get private tutors, and study with the right materials, than kids from Local State U.
I think his point was that taking a class doesn't really give you a leg up anyways. Self studying is just as effective, if not more, if you do it right. And there is almost no one thinking about school who couldn't come up with the money for the books needed if they saved a little bit.
