Alpha Score is an LSAT focused test prep company that offers online study materials.
First off, the company appears to have only been around for about 3 years, since the copyright for “Alpha Score” was filed in 2015. Also, the website provides a lot of information about Canadian law schools, which is unique and lead me to believe that this is a Canadian company.
While law schools in Canada are notably different from American schools, the LSAT is the same in both countries, so this will have no effect on LSAT prep.
I have not heard much about this company, so I personally enrolled in the course trial to see what it is like for myself. The materials and methods seem to be of high quality, and Greg Smith’s teaching style is effective for online instruction.
The course curriculum is a comprehensive approach to each individual section and can be purchased as a whole unit or by individual sections for Logic Games, Logical Reasoning, and Reading Comprehension.
Overall, Alphascore’s online course is impressive but lacks hard evidence to support its quality. The company does not make average score increase claims, and the founder of the company, Greg Smith who makes the instructional videos, gives no evidence to justify his LSAT expertise.
So, while Alpha Score maybe a high-quality LSAT instructional tool for some students, I feel uncomfortable giving it too high of a ranking at this time.
Alpha Score’s online LSAT prep course, at $389, is one of the most affordable out there.
Alpha Score uses real LSAT questions for its lessons, not made-up crap like some test prep companies.
Alpha Score’s online test prep is a comprehensive approach to the LSAT and focuses on a fundamental understanding of the test.
The same person teaches all of the courses, so if you don’t enjoy his teaching style, you’d be out of luck. Though, in my experience, I found him to be an effective teacher.
Many other LSAT prep companies offer hard evidence to support their products, such as average score increases or the scores of their instructors. Alpha Score does not provide this evidence.

Based on my experience with Alpha Score, I give this course a rating of 3.75 stars out of 5.
Alpha Score’s online LSAT course is a comprehensive approach to the exam and is quite affordable compared to competitors.
Students with low diagnostic exam scores who are looking for an online course can find success using Alpha Score. This course covers all of the fundamental concepts that the test examines, so students will be prepared for further prep afterward.
I recommend Alpha Score for students who have scored in the 130s, 140s, or low 150s on their cold diagnostic exams and who are self-motivated to study.
After completing the course, students may find they need additional practice to get to their goal score, which can be found by drilling timed sections and full-length practice tests.

In college, he studied Accounting and Real Estate, though he already knew he would pursue a career in law. He moved to Salt Lake City after graduation and began studying for the LSAT. His cold diagnostic score was a 154 and he self-studied to a 171. He is currently working full-time as a writer as he decides where to attend law school next year.
