My name is Jonathan Wang, and I have been a full-time LSAT instructor and law school admissions consultant since 2011 (and part time in 2010). In addition to my personal private tutoring work, I am also a featured instructor for the popular online LSAT course 7Sage, senior instructor for 501(c)(3) nonprofit PreProBono, and LSAT chairman/head of department at the Institute for Higher Learning, a boutique test prep company in New York City. I currently reside in Manhattan.
Students of mine have been accepted to every top-14 law school, many of them with partial or full scholarships, as well as many other schools across the country. 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. My proudest achievements include getting a student from 136 to 172, sending three students to Harvard and four to NYU in the same year, and getting a student in at Harvard for 9 out of the 10 years I’ve been doing this (as of August 2020). For those who are curious, I scored 175 on my own LSAT (September 2006, now known as PrepTest 50 or “back in the stone age”), going -4 in RC, -2/-0 in LR, and -0 in LG.
I graduated from Columbia Law School in 2010, and am still currently a member of the New York State bar in good standing. 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 (with one trip to Nationals), as well as a four-year national circuit policy debater and Model UN club founder at Saratoga High School before that.
I am a classically-trained violinist who has played in Davies Symphony Hall and in the Sydney Opera House (as part of an orchestra, not as a soloist – not quite that good). I’ve also trained extensively in the Chinese martial art of wushu, including trips to Beijing to train in ‘real’ wushu schools. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, cheering on Bay Area sports teams (Sharks, Warriors, A’s, Giants, 49ers), collecting hockey jerseys, playing video games and board games, and getting my exercise via marathon Dance Dance Revolution sessions instead of going to the gym. No, not kidding. Here’s a video to prove it.
