Q: What is the admission decision process for Campus Prep?
A: Decisions are based on a number of factors including the year of the student and the order in which we receive applications.
Q: Do I have to be a current student to take your classes?
A: Generally, no. Most of our agreements with campuses do not restrict course enrollment to current students.
Q: Do I have to be on financial aid to enroll in your courses?
A: No. We are open to everyone.
Q: When will I find out if I’ve been accepted?
A: The process generally takes 3-5 days for the term that is closest to starting. It can take several weeks to receive an admissions decision, when the course for which you are applying starts more than one month from the date of your application.
Q: How do I know if I qualify for financial aid?
A: This is based on the EFC score on your FAFSA report. EFC stands for Expected Family Contribution and is determined by your family's financial situation. Once you apply, and state that you will apply for aid from us, you will be asked to complete a financial aid form and to submit a screenshot of your EFC.
How Financial Aid Works
If your FAFSA EFC (Expected Family Contribution) is in the lowest 33rd percentile of applicants (usually between 0-1700), or if you have a fee waiver from LSAC or ETS, you will usually automatically be admitted into the course, and usually at the lowest rate (depending on when you apply).
If your FAFSA EFC (Expected Family Contribution) is in the middle 33rd percentile of applicants (usually 1701-4500), you will likely still qualify for a discounted rate.
If your FAFSA EFC (Expected Family Contribution) is in the highest 33rd percentile of applicants (usually, but not always, above 4500), you may not qualify for aid. Any aid will depend on the amount in scholarship funds available.
Q: What is your refund policy?
A: You may receive a full refund for any reason prior to midnight on the day of the first class lesson. You have before the second class session to transfer your enrollment to a future course (within one year). No refunds given after the first day of class.
Q: Do I need a test prep course?
A: Not necessarily. Preparing for the LSAT or GRE can require significant time, energy, and money. Due to its ability to largely determine the path of one’s future plans, this test should not be taken lightly. Therefore, it is important to be as prepared as possible before the test day.
Self-preparation is the most affordable way to prepare for the test. It also allows the student to study completely on his/her own schedule. On the other hand, self-preparation does not provide the type of guidance and support that a prep course can offer. Many people struggle to get themselves to put one or two hours a day into prepping, especially after working or going to school all day. A prep course can help motivate the necessary actions.
Q: What if I miss a class session?
A: You can make-up one LSAT or GRE class session for free by requesting (email firstname.lastname@example.org) the web video version of that particular session. Each class after costs $10. We discourage students from missing multiple class sessions.
Q: Do you guys have testimonials about your results?
A: Yes. See testimonials page.
Q: Where can I find information on registering for the LSAT or GRE?
A: The primary source for the LSAT is lsac.org, and for the GRE it is ets.org.
Q: How do you compare to other prep companies?
A: Most prep companies do not publish results, and so it is unclear how prep companies compare to each other, in this respect. However, prep programs are far more alike than unalike.
This is why, for example, the author of How to Get into Top Law Schools (and a Stanford professor), explains why he recommends exploring the full range of options “rather than opting for the default choice of one of the famous providers."
"First, the major companies' claims that they have ultrasophisticated materials, embodying the otherwise unknowable secrets of the exams, are spurious. The fact is that employees of each company, large and small, monitor the efforts of their competitors and readily incorporate their best ideas. Thus, courses are more alike than different.
Second, although the major companies can boast enormous libraries of materials on which to practice, few students utilize more than a modest fraction of these materials.
Third, the major companies inevitably (given the huge numbers they employ) take on many instructors of average intellect and test taking talent..., provide them with limited training, and suffer from high instructor turnover. The best of the smaller companies can avoid this difficulty."
