If you hope to attend a world-class law school, it is critical to score in the top percentiles on the LSAT, demonstrating your willingness to work hard and apply yourself to admissions committees at the most prestigious and competitive colleges and universities. The pressure to do well on the LSAT is undeniable, but there's no point making yourself more anxious by wasting your valuable and already limited time attempting to piece together your own study program while hoping you're covering the most relevant material.

Since 1999, Manhattan Review has been offering unparalleled test prep resources and materials, and we are proud to pair our clients with the most accomplished and respected instructors in the business. Our tutors regularly work with a diverse group of clients, from students who just completed their undergraduate education to executives at Fortune 500 companies seeking a pay raise, promotion, or simply an opportunity to take their career in a new and exciting direction. We take our position as a leader in the standardized test prep industry seriously, offering Berkeley's most results-driven, comprehensive, and student-friendly provider of LSAT preparation instruction.

The LSAT is purposefully designed to assess the skills required for the first year of law school. These skills include reading comprehension, reasoning, and writing. LSAT scores fall in a range between 120 to 180, with the median score being approximately 152. A median score, however, will not be enough to secure acceptance to a top-tier law school, and competitive scores generally fall in the 160s to 170s. The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) is the organization responsible for the administration of the LSAT, and they regularly track and report statistical information about those who take the test, analyzing their information as a whole while also dividing test-takers into subgroups. According to the LSAC, among the most respected law schools, successful applicants have an LSAT score in the 170s. In order to be competitive for the highest-ranking law schools, it is necessary to do well on the LSAT. Here at Manhattan Review, we can help you master all sections of the test, improving your reading comprehension and reasoning abilities while also strengthening your critical writing skills. 

Regardless of where you are in your LSAT preparation process, whether you've been studying for a while or have only just gotten started, we can help you accelerate your learning through mastering and applying the most effective and efficient test-taking skills, in addition to ensuring you have a thorough comprehension of the content and questions you will encounter on the LSAT. Our instructors are familiar with the intricacies of this exam, having obtained their own impressive scores on this and other standardized tests, but they are not simply exceptional test-takers…they are exceptional educators with strong backgrounds in teaching, learning theory, and academic achievement. Our tutors are well-versed in identifying your particular cognitive strengths, some of which you might not even realize you possess, and they will also teach you to overcome any areas of test-related weakness that might negatively impact your performance on the LSAT. Courses and private tutoring are available during daytime, evening, and weekend hours to accommodate even the busiest Bay Area schedule. Those clients who work with Manhattan Review consistently obtain the highest scores on the LSAT and are regularly admitted to the best law schools around the world, including Harvard University, Stanford University, the University of Cambridge, Yale University, Oxford University, the University of California at Berkeley, Columbia University, Vanderbilt University, the University of Texas at Austin, Georgetown University, the University of Chicago, Cornell University, New York University, Princeton University, and elsewhere.

Meet a Berkeley LSAT Tutor: Eleanor C.

Eleanor was born in San Antonio, Texas, where her mother was a professor at a noted law school and her father was a lawyer in private practice. "I certainly could have chosen a different profession," smiles Eleanor, "but I never really wanted to. I loved growing up discussing things like justice, ethics, and closing arguments around the dinner table, and watching my parents work to make the world a better place absolutely inspired me to find a way to do the same." Eleanor loved growing up surrounded by a large extended family, and from an early age, she found herself especially interested in the undertakings of her more entrepreneurial family members. "They'd come up with these amazing ideas, big things, little things, things that could change the world or just make a big difference to a few people, and even as a kid I remember being concerned about how their ideas—their creations—were being protected." Raised with a strong sense of fairness, Eleanor was an active member in her student government, holding various officer positions, as well as being the parliamentarian in her debate club and being an enthusiastic participant in her local Girl Scouts chapter. Eleanor grew up planning on attending college, and she took preparing for this part of her life very seriously, spending many hours after school and on weekends taking advantage of the ACT prep services her high school offered. Eleanor did very well on the ACT and while she was accepted to all of her top college choices, she ultimately chose to attend Yale University. "I was terrified of living somewhere other than Texas, but I was also excited, and college seemed like the perfect time to explore a new city and state," she shares. 

At Yale, Eleanor majored in pre-law with a minor in psychology, and she knew she wanted to attend the best law school she possibly could after graduation. She planned to specialize in intellectual property, protecting the ideas of creative and passionate inventors like her family members, but as someone who did best with a significant amount of test preparation, she knew obtaining a high LSAT score wouldn't be easy. "Luckily, I was able to take a group prep course that thoroughly prepared me for the exam, and even though I thought I might go crazy from taking so many practice exams and answering so many logical reasoning questions, on the day of my actual test, I was calm and prepared and that was reflected in my score," shares Eleanor. Her impressively high score earned her offers of admission from leading law programs across the United States, and Eleanor opted to return to her home state, where she attended law school at the University of Texas at Austin. After graduating, Eleanor moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts, for a few years, working with leading biotech companies on issues such as patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets. She also began serving as an adjunct faculty member at a local law school, a position she greatly enjoyed.

When Eleanor's wife was offered a promotion if she was willing to relocate to San Francisco, Eleanor whole-heartedly supported the move to the West Coast. She continued working in intellectual property law with several global Fortune 500 companies, but she soon discovered that she missed the excitement and sense of fulfillment she'd felt teaching law students. When she learned of an opening for an LSAT tutor at the Berkeley office of Manhattan Review, she immediately reached out and submitted her resume, eager to be involved with private tutoring, teaching group classes, or providing intensive weekend LSAT workshops. Eleanor was quickly welcomed to the team, and she began offering evening and weekend courses, eventually moving to a parttime consulting position with a biotech company that allowed her to focus more of her time on preparing the next generation of lawyers. Eleanor's courses fill up almost as fast as they are announced, and there is regularly a wait list to work with her. Her students appreciate her patience, as well as her thoroughness and her supportive approach to teaching. When she isn't protecting intellectual property or guiding students to their own LSAT success, Eleanor can be found visiting Berkeley and Oakland bookstores, taking her son to the neighborhood park for weekly play dates, and enjoying fresh seafood with friends at local restaurants.
