Just as a general FYI, if you want to see the teaching style of any of our instructors (including the Austin one, Curtis), just call up the main office and we'll set up a time for you to sit in on a class.

I had a good experience with the Kaplan Advanced class. However, prep courses are expensive, and I think my experience had a lot to do with my instructor, who was great. Not sure if she's still teaching, but if your cold diag is/was in the mid-high 150s or better, I'd recommend taking Kristin Longley's class. She has a lot of good advice on the application process and law school in general. (And IIRC she's how I found out about TLS haha.)

I think many on TLS advocate getting your hands on as many preptests as you can, self-study with the powerscore bibles, etc. There are a lot of threads about this and some guides that will help you plan your self-study if you decide to go that route. I would probably do that if I had to do it all over again and save myself $1200 :/

I highly recommend this as well. Blueprint was very accommodating about letting you view their classes before signing up.

JazzOne is one of the top contributors to the LSAT forum ever. OP needn't look any further.

Curtis Wade is scheduled as the instructor for the Arizona BP course for the Oct. test.

So I'm dumb. My brain conflated a thread about Phoenix and Austin, and they existed as the same location in my head over the past few days.

Elan is our instructor in Austin! But everything else I said still applies - call the office if you want to arrange a time to sit in on the class!
