Is it really necessary to be dropping f bombs and swearing through out the lessons? This is your product that you as a business are selling to customers. Don't assume that just because your customers are young they don't expect professionalism.

    1. I doubt this is the most appropriate place for this concern. Try emailing JY directly.
    2. I find his approach to be both engaging any humorous.
    3. There is not a constant stream of profanity as you seem to imply.
    4. In the real world, people curse. I'm sorry if that comes as a shock.

    I remember him saying it like twice...
    But if you are concern just email JY he's really nice, though I'm sure he's just trying to lighten the mood and make the lessons less tedious with occasional jokes and profanity.

    @ddromney First of all, I (and I can safely say that the VAST majority of people who subscribe to 7sage) LOVE (read not l - i - k - e but L - O - V - E) the way JY (and Jon) teach... I agree that you can have a different point of view... but here's my 2 cents... IF you don't like the product THEN don't purchase it... if you purchased it and it wasn't to your liking then sorry but 'caveat emptor'... instead of trying to tell other people how they should be getting their house in order... take your cash elsewhere... this is a country where you can vote twice... once at the ballot box and once more at the cash register... so use the power that you have. Hope you have a great LSAT ;) Cheers.

    It's JY's humorous, engaging style and RARE profanity (let the record show, this is not squandered on low hanging fruit; indeed, an expletive is often warranted for these questions) that brings light to an otherwise dark world of LSAT preparation.

    I think JY has cursed in videos about two to three times at max. And your argument presumes both a specific definition of professionalism and also that its presence is inappropriate to an audience of college students.

    Also.... sorry to be picky about a minor point... but you got the spelling of professionalism wrong in the subject heading. My bad... OCD.

    Is he dropping f bombs and swearing through out the lessons?
    If you direct your concerns to 7sage administration they would assist you. They are very open to ideas/concerns on ways to improve our learning experience here.

    I can find a few gaps in your argument. so it maybe beneficial for you to try the course.

    If you are bothered by a little cursing in a professional environment then you probably shouldn't be considering becoming a lawyer.

    I'm sure professional lawyers at big firms dealing with high stress situations are careful to use words such as "shoot" and "darn".

    LOL LOL LOL LOL @ Curtis90...Maybe they say, ah "bullsunshine," instead of bulsh@#$#%, "what the cloud?" Instead of what the f@#$^^# , "Heart you!" instead of F@#$% you, and my boss is a rainbowing cloud of flowers instead of @#$%^&%#$@!$%^&!!!!!

    If you can't handle a few curse words... good luck being a lawyer.

    One of the reason's 7sage is particularly successful is because of it's down to earth, shit-fuckstacular approach. .

    There are always two types of people, so he's allowed to voice his concern, no matter how outrageous and inappropriately placed it is...

    JY, the 7sage faculty, and this community are awesome.

    FYI: Profanity doesn't bother me...typos do. (Check your discussion thread title.)

    I'm sad I didn't get in on this love fest earlier. To the fellow who started the thread, you could ask for a refund if you're within your 14 day period of purchasing.

    To everyone else here... I love you.

    @ttunden - I've never said it before, I've always held my tongue. You've repeated this same exact comment several times on these boards. Either substantiate it, or let it drop. If you keep practicing you too will see the magic in your number. What you seem to disbelieve is likely the reason so many people came to this post to defend JY's methods. They work. The bump is real.
  • edited September 2014 82 karma
    You meant to say "throughout the lessons."

    Good authors keep it real. Using some profanity is real. Thus....
  • edited September 2014 82 karma
    It is not professional to use contractions either. You should have said, "Do not assume that just because..."

    @ttunden if that's that case, that you've met some of these people in real life and checked their scores, then so be it. That said, I still think you should let it drop. If you won't call out your friends, then stop talking about it. That said, if someone has a good tip, I don't care if they score 119, I want it. If they feel more confident sharing it when they bluff a score, then that's fine by me.
    The substance is all that matters.

    ddromney, I didn't notice that JY used profanity until you pointed it out; too busy paying attention to the fucking awesome contents. Thanks for your uber useful comments. Needed that good laugh!
