REAL RESULTS: Binary Solution is the only LSAT course with documented score improvements in a 5-year study conducted by a New York Law School
"Binary thinking involves exercising the “left brain,” the analytical part of the mind that governs much of legal reasoning...improving left-brain skills and the speed at which they are performed leads to improvements in LSAT scores, as well as improved performance on law school exams and on the bar exam."
-Dean Bilek, Associate Dean of CUNY School of Law, Harvard Law School, JD
Binary Solution is a unique system for solving the LSAT that is simple enough to be mastered by anyone and powerful enough to raise scores by an average of 12 points. Longitudinal studies conducted by Law School faculty have confirmed that our program increases LSAT scores even among students who view themselves as "bad test-takers."
Our 130-hour intensive program is designed to produce scores in the 160 to 180 range. Consequently, half our class typically gets admitted to top-ten law schools. Our phenomenal improvements have also helped generate over 28 million dollars in merit- based scholarships for our alumni in every tier of law school.
The Binary method is based on a logical deconstruction of the LSAT-- a process that reduces the exam to its smallest quanta of information. Our deconstruction has revealed that the quantum of intellectual currency on the LSAT is the issue, because issues, both on the LSAT and in legal practice always give rise to questions. We explain how every LSAT question is a weighted sum of issues, and since this approach is granular, students are prepared for any juxtaposition of issues that may appear on the LSAT. To facilitate issue-spotting, we have isolated the exam's critical binary operators: a small set of words that appears on every LSAT and functions to trigger the issues that ultimately give rise to LSAT questions. By focusing on the binary operators, our students develop a semantic net for catching any language that is relevant to the solution of a particular question. The semantic net works on the level of the word, thus bypassing any need to "identify" the whole exercise before solving it.
In short, we offer a new lens through which the LSAT can be viewed as an Either/Or system. So at any given time, a test-taker is only deciding between two things. The ability to think in such a binary, black-and-white way is essential to success on the LSAT as well as in law school. Binary thinking is simply the foundation of the ability to build a career in law. Due to its rigorous content, several law schools even recommend Binary Solution as a primer for entering law students.
In addition to record-breaking score increases, we offer the most technologically advanced teaching methods. In 2005, we introduced the first tablet lessons at NYU. Tablet lessons enable our students to watch a problem being solved directly on the pages of the LSAT. The recordings of these live classes generated the first online digital LSAT course, and today we have a library of over 400 recorded sessions that include the fastest solutions to the hardest LSAT questions ever written.
REAL PEOPLE: Binary Solution graduates another stellar class of law candidates
For the last 20 years over 6000 people have applied our solution, and
the results have been consistently remarkable. We are proud of our students and thankful to have grown almost exclusively through their enthusiastic and unsolicited referrals. Here are some of this year's
success stories. The mean improvement of the following group of recent graduates is 16.25 LSAT points:
- After scoring a 173 on
the December 2010 LSAT, William R will be entering Harvard's JD-MBA program in the Fall of 2012, thus making him one of the few people to be picked by Harvard three times
- Emily K, a Barnard graduate, scored a 170 on the October 2010 LSAT and will be attending NYU Law School in the Fall of 2011
- Elena K, who graduated from Adelphi University, was admitted to Harvard Law School after scoring 172 on the October 2010 LSAT
- David B from SUNY Plattsburgh scored 160 in the December 2010 LSAT (up from a 144), and was offered approximately $200K in merit scholarships (even though his average is barely
a 3.0). David will be entering Brooklyn Law School in the Fall of 2011
- Daniella J received a 166 on the December 2010 LSAT and was awarded a merit-based scholarship to attend NYU Law School
- Mikila T scored a 162 on the December 2010 LSAT and received over $250K in merit scholarships form several NY Law Schools
- Julian E from NYU scored a 173 on the June 2011 LSAT and will be applying this year
- Super Siblings: two members of this year's class who gained admission to Harvard & NYU Law School, had sisters who took our course and graduated from Harvard & Columbia Law School-- we commend this tradition of excellence!
