Law School Opportunities in Philadelphia
Philadelphia is one of the largest cities in the US, and is the sixth most populous city in the nation. It is a mecca for those interested in learning and continuing education, as it has numerous universities and colleges. This has made it a bustling educational and economic hub no matter what your interests are. One such category of institutions is the pre-law and law schools.
Among them, Temple University Beasley School of Law is a notable lsw school in Philadelphia. They offer both full-time and part-time programs for completion of the Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree, as they understand that many law students balance a work life with the pursuit of the JD. The university has a discretionary admission process, S.P.A.C.E., which enable them to select applicants who have exceptional aptitudes for the study of law, but this may not necessarily be reflected by the applicant’s grades and LSAT scores alone. To add, they also provide an intensive LSAT prep program that includes the teaching of easy-to-apply strategies for answering Logical Reason questions and Reading Comprehension passages.
Penn Law, University of Pennsylvania Law School offers various law degree programs such as JD, LLM, LLCM, SJD, and ML. Their program leading to the JD is a full-time program. Applicants are required to have completed their undergraduate degrees with strong GPA’s and often, applicants may have other advanced degrees in various fields. They also occasionally accept international students who already hold a law degree. They currently only accept LSAT scores from applicants, though they will be accepting GRE and GMAT tests for JD applicants in the pilot program in the future.
Thomas R. Kline School of Law of Drexel University claims to have invented experiential education. The school offers the typical J.D. program and also a fast forward 2 year J.D. program. Applicants must have earned a baccalaureate degree, must be registered for Law School Data Assembly Service (LSDAS) and must have taken Law School Admission Test (LSAT). The candidate’s undergraduate grade point average (GPA) and LSAT scores are two very important factors in determining admission to the law school. Additionally, the student’s extracurricular activities, work experience, and volunteer service are also considered.

Your final LSAT score is determined based on the following process:
1. They tally up your “raw score,” which is the number of questions answered correctly out of the 100-102 questions total. Please note that there is no penalty for guessing, so you should never leave a question unanswered.
2. LSAC converts your “raw score” into a “scaled score,” which ranges from 120-180. They use a process called “equating,” in which your scores are measured across all LSATs ever administered.
3. LSAC provides your percentile rank, which is based upon all scores from tests administered within the past 3 years. For example, if you scored an 86 “raw score,” this equals a 170 scaled score, and would put you in the 97.4% ranking. Go you!
Students who decide to use a package for their LSAT tutoring can choose the frequency and duration of their meetings. We understand that students’ schedules are busy and inconstant, so you can register every lesson according to the best days/times of availability.
Online or In-Person
You can meet with your LSAT tutor online or in-person. You can also choose a combination of the two. Some students prefer online tutoring because of the convenience while others would prefer an in-person LSAT prep course. No matter your preference, we have tutors available to match your needs.
