SUNY Buffalo Law School LSAT Prep Workshop

The SUNY Buffalo Law School, Office of Admissions and Student Life, is offering a day-long LSAT Prep Workshop on Saturday, October 25th from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.  (Registration begins at 9:45 a.m.)  The LSAT Workshop will include six full hours of LSAT prep instruction for $90.00, a fraction of the fee typically charged by test prep companies. Lunch and study guide included. The LSAT Prep Workshop will be taught by Erin Decker, SUNY Buffalo Law Student and former Kaplan Product Development Manager.  Ms. Decker scored a perfect 180 on the LSAT!  See below for feedback from Ms. Decker’s first LSAT Prep Workshop, held on August 16, 2014:

My initial thoughts going in were that this would be someone just giving away little trick and antidotes. That being said, I was completely blown away by the direction and approach which Erin took and the excellent advice and instruction that she had provided.”

“Hearing another person deconstruct the questions was very helpful. Her attitude was positive and reassuring.”

“It exceeded my expectations, Ms. Decker was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.”
