Kaplan LSAT Instructor interview?

Postby bartleby » Wed Jan 19, 2011 7:29 pm

I passed an online audition a few days ago and am going in for an interview soon. Does anyone know what kind of questions I should expect? I've asked around and heard most of it is just general "What makes you a good/bad LSAT instructor", etc. questions...

TIA for any input.

Are they no longer doing in-person auditions? What was the online audition like?

I'm not familiar with Kaplan interviews, but here are some threads for those interested in the auditions.

Ugh, I was going to do the interview but chickened out. The online room thing freaked me out too much.

Im scheduling my online interview soon. OP, can you give some more info on the online part? Do we just have 7 minutes to "teach" our selected problem ? How in depth did you go ? What was the format like?

I'm also doing the online audition soon and was wondering whether it would be prudent to be comfortable with all three problems they offer. I read a bunch of old threads on this, and apparently one super gunner made a point of yawning during other peoples' presentations, so I'm bracing for some gunner asking me to explain another one or something to make himself look good.

Also, I have a really shitty old webcam. It works though, and my microphone works fine. Do I need to go buy a new one, or is a low res image of me not going to matter if I do everything else right?

are the 3 questions from real LSATs? They seem vaguely familiar ... I figure I could talk for 7 minutes about the question because I'm used to analyzing questions in review. But I'm wondering if people can ask questions etc.... their instructions are kind of vague.

I'm put off by that as well. To me it seems they're really trying to push these online classes. I stated right up front that I would NOT be willing to teach an entire class online, even if I were to pass all the prerequisite stages. It's understandable that they can't deviate from their new policy just to accommodate people like me, but I think the policy in itself is silly.

All i wish to say is, All the best my friend:)
I think you must contact THE CHOPRAS (LSAT) and join them as well.
