Manhattan Review LSAT Review

Manhattan Review's LSAT courses focus on providing students with the personalized instruction they need to master all aspects of the exam. In-class hours are few compared to most other companies, but this can be a good thing if you don't have a lot of time to study.

The Good

Personalized attention in the classroom

Manhattan Review’s LSAT prep courses are generally limited to six to eight people per class. This enables the instructor to spend more one-on-one time with each of the students to make sure they thoroughly understand the material. Low student-to-teacher ratios aren’t all that common in the industry, but this isn’t something to be underestimated since it has a huge impact on the overall quality of education. Manhattan Review is definitely a company to consider if you’re looking for a more tailored approach to LSAT prep but don’t have the money for private tutoring sessions.

Flexible private tutoring sessions

If you’re only struggling with a single section of the LSAT, such as Logical Reasoning, investing in a few private tutoring sessions from Manhattan Review is a more cost-effective solution than paying for a full-length prep course. An hour-long session costs you around $150 and you’re able to purchase as many or as few hours as you need. Tutors design a custom study plan to target the areas where you need the most improvement. Students interested in a more comprehensive LSAT prep course should check out Manhattan Review’s private LSAT course, which covers all the same topics as their Classic Course but in a one-on-one setting. Budget constraints may make this impossible for some, but it is roughly the same cost as the in-person Classic Course.

Save money by booking early

Students who sign up for their Manhattan Review LSAT prep course 15 days or more before the class start date earn a $100 discount on the total cost of the program. Considering that LSAT prep courses typically cost upwards of $1,000, any kind of discount is welcome, especially by those on a budget. Few other test prep companies reward their customers this way, and this could be a deciding factor if you’re on the fence between two different companies.

Useful online resources to learn about the LSAT

Manhattan Review’s website contains several detailed articles about how the LSAT works and the role it plays in the law school admissions process. These articles won’t be of interest to everyone, but they’re great for students who are new to the LSAT exam and want a better understanding of how the test works and what to expect. Although this material can be found elsewhere on the web, it’s nice that Manhattan Review doesn’t require their students to go hunting for it.

The Bad

Few in-class hours

Manhattan Review offers 28 hours of in-class instruction, which is comparatively low in the industry. Many companies offer upwards of 80 hours of live instruction and some of the best LSAT prep courses include over 100 hours of classroom time. More instruction helps students develop a thorough understanding of the material that appears on the exam, but that doesn’t mean Manhattan Review’s shorter course isn’t the right fit for some. For example, you may not have the time for a longer program if your test date is rapidly approaching. Another thing to bear in mind is that Manhattan Review’s class sizes are much smaller than those of other LSAT prep courses, enabling students to get more personalized attention.

Missing a self-study option

Manhattan Review offers in-person and live online LSAT prep courses, but they’re lacking an online video course for those who prefer to study on their own. Though many students are likely going to seek out courses that include live instruction over those that don’t, it would be nice to see Manhattan Review create a self-study course for those who don’t have the time to attend a traditional prep course and need a program that’s a little more flexible. The good news is, these types of courses are fairly common among other LSAT prep course providers, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding one that fits your needs.
