What is Prep Plus for?
Prep Plus is a subscription service from LSAC that cost $99/year. LSAC requires that every student who wants to use a prep course that uses real LSAT questions must have an active LSAC Prep Plus subscription. That includes us, 7Sage, and any other LSAT prep course that uses real LSAT questions.
You must "link" your 7Sage account to an LSAC account with an active Prep Plus subscription in order to use your 7Sage course.
Note that you only need one LSAC Prep Plus subscription no matter how many prep courses you use. That means that if you use prep courses from multiple companies, you don't need to purchase multiple LSAC Prep Plus accounts. You can use the same one.
How to Activate/Link your account
If you purchased LSAC Prep Plus from 7Sage by bundling it into your course, you should have received an email from LSAC
All you have to do is to tap the "Activate" link in the email, and login/register on LSAC's site to accept Prep Plus.
This activation URL can also be located on the Syllabus page. There is a message with an "Activate" button that appears just under "Continue":
Doing this will "activate" Prep Plus on the LSAC account, and "link" it to your 7Sage account. You will be ready to go!
If you did not purchase LSAC Prep Plus from 7Sage then the process is different in two ways:
(1) Instead of "Activate" buttons, you will see "Link" buttons.
(2) You must either link to an LSAC account that already has Prep Plus, or you must purchase Prep Plus on the LSAC account after linking.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Can I purchase a 7Sage course without ever purchasing Prep Plus?
No. 7Sage courses require an active LSAC Prep Plus subscription. Please only subscribe with 7Sage if you also plan to purchase an LSAC Prep Plus subscription at the same time or very soon afterwards.
You have two options to obtain an LSAC Prep Plus subscription. (1) You may purchase it directly from LSAC for $99/year. Or (2) bundle it into your purchase of a 7Sage course.
Note that if you have an LSAC fee waiver, LSAC will give you Prep Plus for free.
If I already have hard copies of the PrepTests, do I still need Prep Plus?
Yes, you still need LSAC Prep Plus. The hard copies of Official LSAC PrepTests are the same ones included in 7Sage and LSAC Prep Plus, however LSAC still requires you to have a Prep Plus subscription to view PrepTest content online.
What happens if/when my LSAC Prep Plus subscription expires?
If you would like to continue using your 7Sage course after your LSAC Prep Plus subscription has expired, you will need to renew your LSAC Prep Plus subscription on LSAC's LawHub site.
If you renew early, before your subscription actually expires, it will extend your Prep Plus account one year from your expiration date. For example, if your LSAC Prep Plus account expires April 15, 2021, and you renew it ahead of time on April 1, 2021, then your new Prep Plus expiry will be April 15, 2022, not April 1, 2022.
Renewing early is a good idea if you are sure you want to renew and want ensure that your studies are not interrupted by the expiration. Alternatively if you are not sure, you can wait for your account to expire and renew at that time.
