Hey everyone how's it going?
Two quick questions. Just started seriously studying on a daily basis for the Oct 1 LSAT. I have read the Power Score trilogy, but did not start self testing until about a week and a half ago. With 4 self tests I have repeatedly scored in the mid 150's, with Logic Games sections being my weakness. I intend to raise this score substantially over the next six weeks, and have decided to take a prep course, so...
1) What feedback do any of you have on the "Kaplan LSAT Advantage" (or really any Kaplan course in general). It runs throughout August, up until Sept 29th, leaving me 2 days off before the test.
2) To all of you veterans out there (I have seen many of you on here), were you able to get these prep courses covered through the GI Bill? I have received conflicting answers from the VA and Kaplan (Kaplan told me they do not accept GI Bill for prep test courses). I do know the GI Bill grants us reimbursement for taking the actual LSAT test, but I would obviously like to get one of these thousand dollar courses covered if it is at all possible.
Thanks in advance, Cheers.
1) I find most on the TLS site find Kaplan ineffective. The Mastery Prep book was worthwhile for sheer practice.
I went through a Powerscore course myself but found most success from self prep, tweaking off of the recommended plan on this site (pithypike).
2) I ran into the same issue:
a few months ago, I spoke with a VA rep over the phone to inquire myself. While he was not too up to speed on it, he basically told my GI Bill can cover the actual cost of the LSAT if you like but not a test prep course from a private company--
the reason being that it's not a continuing education course/degree or a professional certification. This is what I was told then but it may now include it.
Congress just passed some new rules with the new wave of Post 9/11 changes.
