You probably noticed that we revamped our commenting system. Now you can login to comment using Facebook, Twitter, Google, or Disqus. It takes just a few seconds. This new system lets you discuss blog posts and lessons almost in real time, and has a ton of handy features like subscribing by email, social integration, and up/down voting of comments. Most importantly, it is fast and easy.
So you might be thinking, "Okay cool, discussions on 7Sage are easy now. What does that have to do with improving my LSAT score?" Well, getting our students better LSAT scores was the exact motivation behind the new commenting system...
People are fundamentally social beings, and learn better by actively asking questions and talking with one another than just passively listening to lectures. This is why tutoring can be so effective, and why they say the best way to learn is to teach. Our experience has shown that the students who comment the most frequently are highly engaged with the material and reach new heights of mastery. When you dive in and start talking LSAT, you increase your odds of becoming an expert.
Just to give everyone a kick in the seat of the pants, here's a little incentive:
The most active discussion participants will be awarded with Amazon gift certificates, so you can load up on Tuscan Whole Milk. Talking is what lawyers get paid for, so you might as well start now.
- First prize is $50 Amazon Gift Certificate
- Second prize is $20 Amazon Gift Certificate
- Third to Fifth prizes are $10 Amazon Gift Certificates
The winners will be selected largely based on number of comments. But be warned! We will be considering the quality of comments too, and comment spammers will be disqualified. We reserve the right to judge quality and spam however we see fit (mmm... spam...).
So what are you waiting for? Start asking and aswering questions, right now.
