Classes for the March LSAT … Starting Soon!

March comes in like a lion and goes out like a … lion that just aced its LSAT.

Oh, is that not how the saying goes? Because that’s how it works in our books, at least if that lion takes the best LSAT course ever created (at least, in our opinions, though we may be a little bit biased.)

What to Expect When You’re Expecting Your LSAT Score to Be Released

Based on all available information, the November 2018 LSAT scores will be released tomorrow, Saturday, 12/8!
