Blueprint LSAT Prep only hires the top 5% of instructors who apply. Not only do applicants have to look good on paper (an LSAT score of 170 or higher from an actual LSAT administered by Law Services is required), but they must also meet our extraordinarily high teaching standards.
That's why we fly the best LSAT instructors in the world to Los Angeles, where they're personally trained by Blueprint LSAT Prep founders Matt, Trent and Jodi. During training, they spend 70 hours watching presentations, participating in improvisational comedy, and showcasing their abilities by "lecturing" us on various topics ("How to Tell Your Ass From Your Elbow" is our all-time favorite). In the end, it's whether or not they can make us laugh while teaching LSAT prep's core concepts that distinguishes the good LSAT instructors from the best LSAT instructors.
After they're hired, Blueprint LSAT Prep instructors undergo approximately 112 more hours of extensive training — including 76 hours of lesson prep, 40 hours of mentoring, and six hours of observation and feedback.
Sure, Blueprint LSAT Prep's training process is rigorous and borderline excessive. But that's what it takes to have the best LSAT instructors in the biz — and having the best LSAT instructors in the biz is what it takes to have the highest average LSAT practice exam score increase (11 points).*
Finally, the best LSAT instructors also receive the best LSAT instructor pay: up to $100/hour. That way, we make sure to attract the best and the brightest.
Now if you'll excuse us, we've got some résumés to evaluate.
*Our score increase study was run in the spring of 2014 and included all qualifying students in all of our courses from across the country. To qualify for the study, students had to take all six proctored practice exams given during the course. In addition, the study excluded self-study students who did not attend a live class. Repeat students were also excluded.
