Manhattan Prep LSAT Review

Manhattan Prep's weekly office hours and live review sessions make it easy for LSAT students in all their courses to get the one-on-one attention they need, which is good given that their tutoring services are a little pricier than the rest of the industry.

The Good

Learn from the best of the best

Manhattan Prep’s hiring process is extremely rigorous and only the most qualified candidates are chosen to instruct their students. In order to apply, individuals must have at least two years of teaching experience and have scored in the 99th percentile on an official LSAT exam. Once they pass the interview process and get the job, they spend up to three months getting trained on the best ways to help students learn the important ideas that frequently appear on the LSAT. A good instructor makes a big difference in the overall quality of the education the students receive, so it’s nice to see Manhattan Prep put so much effort into ensuring only the most highly qualified teachers lead their courses.

Weekly office hours for homework help

Every Manhattan Prep instructor holds weekly office hours to help students solve any homework questions and master the topics covered in class. During these office hours, you speak to the instructor one-on-one and they work with you to figure out what areas you should focus on as you move forward in the course. Many other LSAT prep courses only give you the option to contact your instructor via email if you have a question outside of class and, even then, it may take a little while to get a response. Having easy access to your instructor through these office hours is highly valuable and something that should definitely factor into your decision-making process when choosing the best LSAT prep course.

Free online tools to further your learning

Manhattan Prep hosts a forum where you can ask instructors and fellow students the questions you can’t find the answers to anywhere else. This is also a good place to turn for homework help if there’s a problem that’s giving you trouble. Another unique tool Manhattan Prep offers is their LSAT Arcade. You need to register on the site in order to play, but the games themselves are completely free and give you the chance to practice the skills you’ve been learning in a fun and engaging way. No other LSAT prep course provider offers resources like this to their students — especially for free.

Live assistance for self-study students

Students in Manhattan Prep’s INTERACT course have the option to engage in live review sessions with a highly trained instructor. There are 12 different review sessions, each of which correspond to one of the INTERACT course’s 12 video lessons. These sessions are taught through a virtual classroom where students can see and interact with the instructor. This is your time to ask questions about concepts you didn’t completely understand from watching the videos and to go over additional practice problems. The schedule for these review sessions can be found on Manhattan Prep’s website, so keep an eye out for these and make sure you’ll be around for them. Adding these live review sessions to your INTERACT course is going to cost you an additional fee, but if you feel you’d benefit from having an instructor there to guide you and answer your questions, it might be worth paying for.

Focus on a single section of the exam

Manhattan Prep offers mini video courses focusing on one particular section of the LSAT exam, which is great if you’re only struggling in one area. This is a nice alternative to a full-length course because it enables you to quickly focus on the concepts you need to practice. Each mini course also costs significantly less than a traditional prep course, making them especially appealing to people on a budget. As a part of these programs, you receive the Manhattan Prep strategy guide corresponding to that particular section of the exam, access to online video lessons related to the subject, and more.

The Bad

Tutoring is a little expensive

Manhattan Prep’s hourly tutoring fee is just under $255 per hour, with a 2 hour minimum, which is relatively high compared to the rest of the industry. It’s much more common to see tutoring fees ranging from $100 to $150 per hour. With Manhattan Prep, a 25-hour package is going to cost you over $5,500, which could be more than some people are willing or able to pay for LSAT prep. In this case, it’s better to stick with one of Manhattan Prep’s traditional prep courses or select a different company that offers more affordable private-tutoring rates.
