Edu-Tech Startup Co-founder Sworn into United States Congress

Co-founder of Ron DeSantis leaves company he co-founded to represent Florida's 6th District in the House of Representatives.

Online PR News – 08-January-2013 – Washington, DC – Washington, DC – Congressman Ron DeSantis was sworn in to the 113th Congress last week by House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH). Mr. DeSantis issued this statement following the swearing in: “Being sworn in to the 113th Congress today was an incredible honor, but now my gloves are off and I’m ready to fight.”

DeSantis is no stranger to a good fight. He helped build the education startup LSAT Freedom ( from an idea into a thriving online education website. In fact, the concept behind LSAT Freedom was to combat a costly and stagnant marketplace for LSAT (law school admissions test) preparation.

“We saw how a lot of companies charge upwards of $1500 for a basic LSAT course, and we all thought that is simply way too much, even if the instruction was good,” said Ron DeSantis, upon the founding of the company. “Once you add that to all the LSAC fees, LSAT fees, and law school application fees, merely applying to law school has become a significant financial investment—and this is all before students take on six-figure levels of debt to pay for law school.”

DeSantis’ work as a co-founder helped build LSAT Freedom’s reputation in the marketplace and build the LSAT Freedom brand. In fact, DeSantis’ lectures are still featured on the site. “Ron was instrumental to the start of LSAT Freedom” said co-founder Robert Fojo, “When we started we had very little to go on. Now we have a state-of-the-art website, a first-rate management team, and a great staff. It is really amazing how far we have come since those early days.”

DeSantis started the company with Harvard Law School roommates Robert Fojo and Rob Tauler. DeSantis’ co-founders are happy to see their partner and friend achieve new heights. “We are obviously sad to see Ron leave the company, but he has always been drawn to public service. I have no doubt that he will do a great job serving Florida’s 6th District,” added co-founder Rob Tauler.

LSAT Freedom provides a wide range of LSAT preparation services using a convenient online format. From the more than 1,000 video explanations of questions from the most recent exams to the library of tutorials that break down the logical principles that underlie the questions on the exam, this LSAT approach ensures that students will be well-equipped to tame the LSAT and earn themselves a ticket to the law school of their choice.
