All of our instructors have scored in the top 1% on an actual LSAC-administered LSAT and are able to clearly explain the underlying principles so you can duplicate their success—no other national LSAT prep companies match this instructor standard.

But it's not just about the score. Our instructors are enthusiastic because they truly enjoy teaching; they're proficient because we put them through a rigorous training program before they ever set foot in a real class; and they know what you're up against, because they've been there themselves. When you walk into a PowerScore classroom you can be assured that you're learning from the best in the industry.
