How to Enroll

1. Will you register me for the LSAT?

We’d like to, but LSAC requires everyone to register on their own. You can do so at

2. How much does the course cost?

The 100-Hour LSAT Course is $1,395, and the 40-Hour LSAT Course is $895.

3. How do I enroll?

You can enroll online or call us at (202) 680-4561.

4. If I enroll online, do I have to set up a PayPal account?

No. After you select your course, just select the “guest checkout” option. You can also call us at (202) 680-4561.

5. Is there a deadline to enroll?

Although there is no deadline to enroll, seats are limited, depending on the room reserved for your class. For this reason, classes often fill up before they start. To see which classes are still open, visit our list of class schedules here:

Class Schedules

6. Can I reserve my seat?

Yes. You can reserve your seat for $100, which is refundable. If you decide to cancel one week before the class begins, we will refund your deposit.

The remaining balance is due one week before the class begins. You can pay the remaining balance with cash, a check, or a credit card. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. If you mail a check, please make it out to “Strategy Prep.”

Pay Your Balance

7. Do you offer a payment plan?

Yes. When you enroll, you can select a payment plan, which is three payments, once a month. If you'd like to set up your own payment schedule, email us or call us at (202) 680-4561. When you enroll with a payment plan (or pay in full), we'll mail you Early Start materials so you can start studying now.

8. What is your refund policy?

Because we need to reserve rooms and order materials before each class begins, we need to know how many students will be attending at least one week in advance. For this reason, to cancel your registration and get a refund, please contact us at least one week before your class is scheduled to start. After that, we cannot issue any refunds.

10. What is included with each course?

The 100-Hour LSAT Course ($1,395) comes with...

  • 100 hours of live instruction
  • 8 live proctored exams
  • 30 official full-length LSATs *
  • Strategy’s official study materials and explanations
  • Email your instructor with questions at anytime

The 40-Hour LSAT Course ($895) comes with...

  • 40 hours of live instruction
  • 6 live proctored exams
  • 20 official full-length LSATs *
  • Strategy’s official study materials and explanations
  • Email your instructor with questions at anytime

* If you work through all the tests we give you, which is rare, ask your instructor for more. We're happy to give you more official practice tests and questions that target the sections or question types you want to work on.

11. Do I have to buy any other materials?

No. Everything you need is included with the course.

12. How do I get my materials?

The materials are handed out throughout the course, starting at the first lesson.

When you enroll, if you start an automatic payment plan or pay in full, we'll mail you our Early Start materials. You do need to work through these materials before the class begins, but it is a good way to get started if you want to start studying now.

13. What’s the difference between your two courses?

Both courses cover the same strategies. The key difference is how much time we have to go over each strategy in class and how many weeks you have to take practice tests and to do the recommended homework. Learn more:

14. What is the JD Admissions Workshop and what does it cost?

In the workshop, one of our senior JD admissions consultants will give you the behind-the-scenes perspective of a law school admissions committee:

  • Who actually reviews my application?
  • What drives their priorities?
  • What should I include in my personal statement?
  • Should I write a diversity statement? If so, what should I write about?
  • What should I highlight in my resume?
  • When and how should I address a low GPA?
  • What’s the best way to ask for recommendation letters? And who should I ask?
  • How many schools should I apply to?
  • What are my chances of getting in?
  • What should I do if I’m waitlisted? And what’s a hold?

Although the workshop is $95, it is free for current students.

What Happens in Class

15. How big are your classes?

Seats are limited, depending on the room reserved for your class. Most classes have about 25-35 students. To help everyone get the individual attention, we offer extra help sessions on Thursday nights.

16. Can I attend a class to see what it’s like?

Yes. Sign up here or call us at (202) 680-4561:

Attend a Free Class

17. Is there anything I should do before the first day of class?

Although you don’t need to do anything before class, we have prepared “Early Start” materials for students who want to start studying now. To get these materials, just make sure to pay in full or to start a payment plan when you enroll.

18. How much time should I spend studying outside of class?

How much you should study partly depends on how quickly you grasp the material, but we’d recommend aiming for about 1-3 hours per day or about 14 hours per week. In reality, some people will need more than this while others will need less.

Missing a Class

19. How can I make up a missed class?

We record all the lessons so you can watch them online later. You can ask follow-up questions at the Extra Help sessions or by calling or emailing your instructor. If you’re going to miss a test, we can give you the test to take on your own.

Here's a sample:

20. How can I make up a missed practice exam?

Practice tests are easy to make up. You can get the test from your instructor before or after the exam to take on your own. If you can't attend the diagnostic exam, email us your mailing address and we'll ship it to you.

21. How can I get more help?

You can always come 30 minutes before each lesson to ask your instructor questions.

On Thursday nights, we hold Extra Help sessions. These optional sessions are like small-group tutoring sessions. You can ask about anything that you’re struggling with, study on your own, or just sit back and listen. The point of these sessions is to give you plenty of opportunities to review previous lessons, homework challenges, and practice exams.

Feel free to also email your instructor with questions at any time.

Retaking a Class

22. Is there a discount if I decide to take the course again?

Yes, you will get a $200 discount.

23. How do I receive this discounted rate?

If you decide to retake the class, just emails us and we’ll add you to the roster.

Taking the Online Class

24. How does the online class work?

The online class is a “hybrid” class that is partly online and partly in-person.

To give you the most recent preparation materials available for the next LSAT, we will record all the lessons in the upcoming 100-Hour Course for you to watch online as soon as they’re available. Each lesson will be posted online the day after it’s recorded.

Sample Lesson  —  from a previous semester:

The videos in this sample lesson are from the first lesson of the 100-Hour Course from a previous semester. You will have access to the videos from the most current class.

The only difference between our online course and our regular 100-Hour Course is that you will watch the lessons online. At the same time, you can still ask our tutors questions in person—face-to-face—on Thursday nights or by email. You also attend the live proctored exams. It’s the best of both worlds for less.

25. What events can I attend in person with the online class?

Although you’ll watch the lessons online, you can attend the extra help sessions on Thursday nights and the proctored exams on Saturdays in person. You can also email your instructor with questions at any time. Here are the schedules:

Class Schedules

26. What materials are included with the online class?

You will get all the same books and online resources as the regular 100-Hour Course. We will ship the books to you in the mail after you enroll.

27. What if I'm not in Washington, DC?

No problem. Several students have taken the class entirely online. We'll ship you all the materials and tests. And you can call or email your instructor with questions at any time.

28. How long will the videos be available online?

The videos will be available throughout the class and for six months after the class is over.
