Who Is This Guy?
“Who is this guy?” you might ask. Is this goal of perfection set out of hubris? Does he really enjoy standardized testing THAT much? Is a history of scoring from 171-179 not good enough?
In reality, there are two important reasons:
- The opportunity to set myself apart from other instructors and companies. While ability to teach is certainly the greater concern when hiring an LSAT instructor, it certainly couldn’t hurt my marketing or reputation to add a perfect score to my resume, especially on an official, four-times-a-year LSAT.
- More importantly, I’d like to make sure that I continue to view the test with a fresh approach! For this reason, I’ll attempt each new LSAT as it’s published, announcing my results and feelings about each one. I believe that this approach will help me see things from a student’s perspective, resulting in a more “user-friendly” course and a more understanding instructor!
In short, I am making scoring a 180 my “holy grail”, just as the score that each student strives for becomes his or hers. By taking on this task I can truly tell my students that we’re in this together!
