Manhattan Review LSAT Prep Home
Manhattan Review has been the leader in providing trusted and respected LSAT prep since 1999. We have a proven track record of success and are proud to have played an important role in our students' acceptance to top-tier Ivy League universities in the United States and around the world. Former Manhattan Review students from Hong Kong now have rewarding careers in almost every field. Many go on to work for Fortune 500 companies, while some have started their own businesses, succeeding in the entrepreneurial world. In Hong Kong alone, students have gone on to work with esteemed companies such as AIA, China Mobile and DFS, among many others. Other scholars and academics begin their public-sector careers as educators, researchers, and government officials. At Manhattan Review, we are committed to helping you realize your potential and live your dreams, wherever your career will take you, be it Hong Kong, Asia, and elsewhere.
Manhattan Review's LSAT prep courses, available in both on-site and online interactive formats, draw upon our many years of experience preparing Hong Kong students from widely varied backgrounds to excel on the test. We're familiar with the various teaching methods and materials and have distilled the essentials to boost your score. Our thorough understanding of the LSAT, its format and expectations is second-to-none in the test prep industry. We've devised effective strategies and a practical approach to the exam to help ease your mind come exam day. Based on our intimate knowledge of test prep techniques, we've honed them into an effective course to help you not just maneuver the LSAT, but conquer it.
Manhattan Review's LSAT prep classes give our Hong Kong students a firm understanding of how the test itself is designed, how to approach each section, and how to make the most of study time and yield outstanding results. Unlike some other investments, you will get back what you put in.
Manhattan Review's LSAT instructors are hired through a rigorous, thorough screening process. Other test prep companies throughout Hong Kong and elsewhere might put mere emphasis on a prospective instructor’s test scores, but for us, this is only a starting point. We also look for academic accomplishment, professional success, a passion for teaching, and interesting personal backgrounds when making our hiring decisions. We pride ourselves in retaining well-rounded and accomplished LSAT teachers in the Hong Kong area and beyond.
Many of our LSAT instructors are graduates of venerated schools such as The University of Hong Kong Faculty of Law, Harvard, and Stanford just to name a few, but we also realize that the most selective institutions do not have a monopoly on talent. Our tutors have distinguished themselves in many different regards and can offer fresh perspectives on how to approach the test with their own LSAT experience as well as our course outline. At Manhattan Review, we value instructors with a sharp eye for precision as well as a nuanced personal experience of the exam.
Even setting aside our tutors' experience, knowledge and superb teaching abilities, they truly enjoy contributing to your academic success alongside your test-taking skills. They are well aware taking the LSAT exam is for ambitious and determined people, and aiding Hong Kong students in that journey is rewarding and gratifying. In addition to their academic prowess, our tutors also have active lives outside of work, with diverse hobbies and interests that make them accessible, well-rounded and very approachable.
The seeds of Manhattan Review were planted at Columbia Business School in 1999. Joern Meissner, then a doctoral student at the university, earned a reputation for explaining advanced and complex subjects in an accessible manner while giving lectures to MBA students. Several of these students thought that Meissner's teaching style would translate well to delivering test preparation for graduate school admissions tests such as the LSAT. They challenged him to come up with a method of prep that was better than their own unproductive experiences. Meissner responded by creating original lectures that covered LSAT, GRE, and GMAT material from a different yet efficient and simplified angle. Students recognized that his perspective was far superior to the rote memorization and dull tricks offered by other prep companies.
Since then, Manhattan Review has grown into an international educational services company, with branches not just in Hong Kong, but across Asia and in in major North American, European, and Australian cities. Our offerings have grown to include prep courses and private tutoring for the LSAT, GRE, GMAT, SAT, ACT, and TOEFL, in addition to admissions consulting and application services. Test prep for international applicants to English-speaking universities is one of our specialties, and a large percentage of our student population lives outside of the United States. We offer our students in-depth knowledge of American higher education’s standardized testing and provide holistic context to Hong Kong and the other cities in which we serve.
Joern Meissner, an internationally renowned business school professor, completed a Diploma in Business Management at the University of Hamburg and a PhD in Management Science at Columbia Business School in New York City, one of the Ivy League Schools. After completing his doctoral degree, he chose the career path of an academic and has now more than 25 years experience as a postsecondary educator. Professor Meissner's passion for teaching is evident and has taught business courses at Lancaster University Management School, the University of Hamburg, the University of Mannheim, and the Leipzig Graduate School of Management. Meissner's research on supply chain management, dynamic pricing, and revenue management has been published in several respected academic journals. Professor Meissner thoroughly enjoys his research, but he believes that grasping an idea is only half of the fun. Conveying knowledge to others is even more fulfilling. This philosophy was crucial to the establishment of Manhattan Review, and remains its most cherished principle.
