Manhattan Review LSAT Prep Home
Manhattan Review is an international education company that has helped thousands of students achieve impressive scores on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). We are a firm that offers LSAT programs in dozens of countries all over the world, and our LSAT teaching has eased the path to law school for students from almost every conceivable academic and cultural background. Our flexible LSAT offerings may be taken in group course or individual tutoring formats, both on-site or online, and we also provide a number of ancillary services (such as LSAT practice tests). Past Manhattan Review LSAT clients have graduated from the best law schools in the United States, including Harvard, the University of Virginia, Yale, Georgetown, and the University of California-Berkeley, and many of our former LSAT students are now successful attorneys practicing in every area of the legal profession.
Unlike the LSAT instruction offered by other companies, Manhattan Review's LSAT teaching is designed to precisely accommodate the individual learning requirements of our students. We have the knowledge base and breadth of teaching experience that one would expect from a global firm, but we also have a strong understanding of every locality in which we operate. The Manhattan Review teams in all of the North American, South America, European, Asian, and African cities we serve have tailored their test prep instruction to the needs of local students. Just as importantly, we believe in the pedagogical philosophy of differentiation, which is based on the idea of teaching students in the specific ways that they most effectively learn. Rigorous student and teacher assessments help us implement proven teaching strategies that maximize each student's potential.
Because we realize that the success of our LSAT programs is dependent on the skills, talents, and credentials of our teachers, Manhattan Review goes to great lengths to select the best possible candidates. Some companies are satisfied with elite test scores only; for us this is a necessary but not sufficient precondition. While we do hire LSAT teachers who scored in the top 1%, we also consider many other professional and personal issues. Successful applicants for our LSAT teaching positions are graduates of top universities and highly selective law schools. They also have years of relevant teaching experience, appealing styles of instruction, and friendly personalities. All new teachers are comprehensively trained in Manhattan Review's methods and materials to ensure that they are thoroughly prepared to help our students achieve all of their goals for the LSAT and for law school admission.
Manhattan Review was founded in New York City in 1999 by Joern Meissner, who was then pursuing his PhD at Columbia Business School. While serving as an instructor for various business courses, Meissner developed a reputation among his students for having a unique ability to explain complicated issues in accessible ways. Some of these students suggested that he apply this approach to instruction for the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), the entrance exam for graduate business degree offerings. Meissner created a series of GMAT lectures that would evolve into Manhattan Review's first test prep offerings, which would immediately become popular with students in the New York City area.
Our company quickly expanded its offerings to other tests and other cities. Manhattan Review is now the top resource for LSAT, GMAT, GRE, TOEFL, IELTS, SAT, and ACT preparation in countries on every inhabited continent. Tens of thousands of Manhattan Review students worldwide have benefited from stronger university admission prospects achieved through higher test scores. We've also published a series of textbooks for all of the assessments we teach, entitled Turbocharge Your Prep. Manhattan Review is the industry leader in effective test preparation, admissions counseling, and application advising.
