As we mentioned last time we checked in with the GUSA President Calen Angert (MSB ’11), GUSA has been busy this summer setting up a subsidized LSAT practice course. According to Angert’s Chief of Staff Tim Swenson (COL ’10), the program is ready to start accepting applications, and a schoolwide email about it should be going out today. So what’s the deal exactly?
According to Swenson, the program, which is being co-sponsored by the Career Center, will offer students (specifically Juniors and Seniors, although underclassmen can apply) a chance to take an LSAT prep class on the cheap.
For $50, you’ll get eight two-hour sessions with Tom Xosa, a professional LSAT tutor. The class will be starting in mid-September and is designed for students planning to take the LSAT in December.
Applications are online now at GUSA’s website; the deadline to fill yours out is August 21st.
Update 1:45 p.m. According to Swenson, this year’s class will have between 25 to 30 students (GUSA and Xosa wanted to keep it relatively small so that students will be able to get personal attention). Depending on how successful this program is, GUSA might expand it in the future and might offer subsidized training courses for other tests like the MCAT, GMAT and GRE.
