Consultant in New York
I am the the LSAT Department Chairman at the Institute for Higher Learning's Manhattan office, and have nearly a decade of experience with the LSAT and with law school admissions.
Before joining the Institute, I was a very successful private LSAT instructor and admissions consultant.Students of mine have been accepted to every top-14 law school, many of them with partial or even full scholarships. I've worked with hundreds of students from all across the United States and Canada, as well as students internationally from countries including China, South Korea, France, England, Brazil, Qatar, and the Netherlands. Additionally, I served as the senior instructor for 501(c)(3) nonprofit PreProBono, Inc., and as the only featured instructor in the history of the very well-regarded online LSAT course 7Sage.
I graduated from Columbia Law School in 2010, and am a member of the New York State bar. I summered at Fenwick & West in 2009 and spent a year as a Legal Fellow with the New York Unified Court System from 2010-2011, working with Hon. Efrain Alvarado, Hon. Eugene Oliver, and Hon. William McGuire at the Bronx Supreme Court, Criminal Division.
Before that, I attended UC San Diego, graduating with double majors in Political Science and Management Science. I am a brother of Alpha Kappa Psi, and spent six of my nine active quarters on the executive board. I was also four-year mock trialer in college, as well as a four-year national circuit policy debater in high school.
I am a classical violinist who has played in Davies Symphony Hall and in the Sydney Opera House as part of an orchestra. I've also trained extensively in the chinese martial art of wushu, including trips to Beijing to train in 'real' wushu schools.
