LSAT Class-Action Lawsuit

The Law School Admission Council (who administers the LSAT) has entered into a consent decree to settle a class action lawsuit for students who were denied accommodations on the LSAT between 2009 and 2014.  If you applied for accommodations and were denied (on the LSAT only), you may be eligible to join the class-action law suit and receive a settlement.  You can find information at the United States Attorney’s Office website…

or contact me at scott.self@acu.edu and let me help you join the suit.

New Screencasts – Evernote Videos

We just posted an update to the Media page here at acu.edu/alpha – One is an introduction to Evernote, and the other is helpful tips for using Evernote to take lecture notes.  Evernote is a really useful tool for students, and it’s the right price – it’s FREE!  These videos presents some of the problems that Evernote can solve, and guides the student in using the tool to capture good notes, record the lecturer, and prepare for exams.  Please schedule a tutoring session if we can help you think more specifically on how to use Evernote as part of your academic tool box!

Cool iPad Site for Alpha

It looks like all of the code is working on our new iPad site.  Open the blog on your iPad for a really clean look.  You can also switch to the web-version if you scroll to the bottom and toggle the “iPad” button.

Here we goooo!

Welcome to the updated Alpha web-space.  We hope that you will find it very valuable!  Here are a couple of things to be looking for…

  • On all the pages (except the Apply page), there are links on the side-bar.  Those students who have been approved for exam accommodations can sign up by clicking that button.
  • On the Staff page, you can schedule a meeting with any of the professional staff.  We may be expanding that section to include tutors as well in the near future, so keep your eyes on that!
  • The Student page is really your go-to spot.  We intend to keep it relevant to all of your Alpha needs.
  • The Media page is going to have a lot of screencasts coming your way.  We think it will be a great way to provide you with tips and tools.
  • We’re also going to be tweeting out updates as often as we make them – follow us at @AlphaScholars!
