LSAT/Law School Test Prep Class

For the first time in ten years, ETSU students can get prepped for the LSAT and law school right at their own university. This is also open to those not from ETSU.
Appalachian Test Prep is proud to offer, in partnership with East Tennessee State University, our LSAT/Law School Prep Course!

Don't pay outrageous prices for prep courses that don't get you ready for law school. Appalachian Test Prep's Law Prep instructors are real law school graduates and our curriculum will not only help you in getting your maximum score on the LSAT, but will give you the prep you need to be ready for law school on day one. In addition to all LSAT sections, we engage in a mock law school class session, discussions on admission tips, the truth about law school scholarships, and target school analysis. If you want to chase your dream of earning a Juris Doctorate, enroll in our class today and let us help you get there!

To prepare for the  LSAT exam, our course will run from January 11 to February 22nd. The class will meet on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6PM-9PM on ETSU main campus. Special study days will be on Sundays , January 14, 21, 28 and February 4th. 
You do not have to be an ETSU student to attend! Anyone interested in LSAT/Law School Prep can enroll and attend the classes on ETSU's campus!
