Andrew McDonald

Andrew is so enamored of spicy food that he once agreed to a bet that involved a challenge later featured on 'Man vs. Food'. He triumphed, but, alas, it was a Pyrrhic victory; it’s nearly impossible to take full advantage of free drinks after consuming a blender full of habaneros.

Andrew is a lifelong Washingtonian, but after completing a degree in Creative Writing at the University of Washington and a short stint as a mustache-twirling insurance adjuster – don’t ask – he found true love in a little test called the LSAT. He scored a 170 and was off to law school at Lewis and Clark in Portland, OR, where he maintained a full scholarship. Unlike the school's eponymous explorers, Andrew didn’t walk thousands of miles to class, though he did enjoy Portland's great nearby hikes. He practiced law back home in Washington for a time, but he couldn't stand to be separated from his beloved LSAT. Now, he’s Blueprint’s man in the Northwest.

Andrew is earnest and honest in the classroom, just as he was with his legal clients. The LSAT, just like the law, won't usually make sense coming in off of the street, but all a student needs is some time, tools, and a patient guide to steer him or her clear of the pitfalls. Rest easy, dear student, because you have Andrew, the Blueprint method, and more nerdy references and bad puns than you can stomach.

When he's not teaching the LSAT, Andrew keeps up his performance skills with a little improv acting, or so says his resume. We followed him one weekend and what he really means is running around the woods pretending to be a wizard or something.

Sarah Pratter

As a Hoosier – that’s a native Indianan, for those of you who missed the movie classic of the same name – Sarah enjoys Big Ten b-ball, foods in casserole form, and John Cougar Mellencamp. Or is it John Cougar? John Mellencamp? Whatever, the Jack and Diane guy!

After leaving the bucolic bliss of Bloomington, IN, Sarah attended New York University and the University of Michigan Law School. Before moving to LA in order to be closer to Disneyland, she was a practicing attorney in Chicago. Most of her pre-Blueprint teaching experience came from a brief stint teaching kindergarten, and extensive nannying to pay for her online shopping habit. As a result, she has nearly endless patience and is liable to fly into class on a magical umbrella. 

Once she lands in the classroom, Sarah wants studying for the LSAT to be fun. Instead of a spoonful of sugar, she offers personal anecdotes, jokes (some good, some terrible), and a sense that anything is possible – except a score of 181 or above. Both in and out of the classroom, Sarah is happy to discuss the LSAT philosophy that helped her get a 171. In exchange, she hopes that you will help her figure out how the freeways work out here. 

If she’s got her headphones in, Sarah is probably listening to one of the Harry Potter audiobooks. Please interrupt her; she has heard them all many times before.

Dylan Gadek

Dylan has worked as a used car salesman, an online poker pro and for the past six years as an LSAT instructor. While his affection for selling '92 Cabriolets and losing money on the river card has waned, his love for teaching continues.

Dylan was an undergraduate at Yale, where he spent time debating and developing an affection for Cheetohs. In between washing orange dust off his hands, he became the second person ever to be both a national debate champion and North American debate champion in 2007, and the only American undergrad to win Cambridge University's invitational tournament. The latter allowed him take part in the quintessential American activity: beating the British.

Dylan believes strongly that his philosophy degree and his LSAT score of 178 should be only partially wasted, and so emphasizes understanding the logical structures on the LSAT. He'll also teach you the importance of understanding why the incorrect answers are incorrect, as well as the role Cheetohs can play in a well-crafted study plan.

In addition to helping you get a great LSAT score, Dylan knows where you can get a good price on a 2005 Spectra.

Cory OBrien

Cory's first teaching job was on the streets of Italy, where he taught small children how to juggle so that they'd bully their parents into giving him money. He's come a long way since then, both professionally and geographically.

At age fourteen, Cory dropped out of high school and entered college at Cal State University, Los Angeles. After earning his BA in English, Cory hitch-hiked across Europe, walked across Spain, and drove across the United States in a car powered by vegetable oil, before finally settling down and getting a master's degree in creative writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. When he was suspended from his bartending job for leaving lime wedges in the sink, he decided to take the LSAT and, fueled by a fierce determination to never go back to bartending, scored a 170.

Cory believes that, just like with juggling, the apparent complexity of the LSAT is really just the result of a few different combinations of the same simple principles. He also believes that nothing helps you remember a simple principle quite like laughing at a dumb joke about it, so there will be plenty of those. Cory's ultimate aim is to help you get into the heads of the sadists who write the LSAT, and thus take some of the stress out of the experience.

Cory likes climbing trees, pomegranates, and learning to swear in foreign languages. He wants to be an astronaut when he grows up, or at least a dog.

Ross Rinehart

Ross spent his formative years in San Diego, where he picked up a skateboard and has been annoying pedestrians, dogs, and security guards ever since.

While earning his degree in English and Political Science at UCLA, Ross wrote pretentiously overwrought album reviews for the Daily Bruin. One in particular inspired his then-girlfriend to say, "That was the least fun thing I've ever read." Finding that a career in music journalism was not in the cards, Ross signed up with Blueprint, which helped him earn a 170 on the September 2009 LSAT. Ross matriculated to the USC Gould School of Law in 2010 where he spent time working on the campus' Post-Conviction Justice Project and apologizing to his Bruin friends for setting foot on the Trojan campus.

With eleven years of teaching experience under his belt, Ross strives to create a convivial environment in his Blueprint classes so that students can feel comfortable during what is often a stressful time in their lives. Ross also knows a little about picking yourself up after falling down (conservative estimates indicate that Ross has failed over 2,810,543 skateboard trick attempts), so he knows how important it is to provide support for his students as they learn the skills that will get them a great LSAT score.

Ross will tell you his favorite movies are La Dolce Vita, Bicycle Thieves, and Breathless, but we know Purple Rain and Clueless actually top the list.

Kyle Gehrmann

Kyle is from the frozen tundra of Minnesota. He remembers one particular walk home from school in which his eyelids froze to his eyeballs and got stuck. Ouch. He moved to balmy Chicago for a change of scenery — think snow and elevated trains rather than snow and tractors. Graduating from Northwestern with a degree in theatre (yes, “-re” not “-er”), he took the LSAT as a challenge from his friends. He came out of it with a mighty 171, which made him think, “Hey, this lawyer stuff must be easy.” Then he attended University of Chicago Law School which made him think, “Hey, this lawyer stuff is hard.” Now he takes LSAT aspirants from zero to hero in no time flat.

Kyle has a true coaching instinct, and brings that into the classroom. He wants everyone to be the best they can. He's been told he has a calming influence on a group, all the better to lead you through the most complicated logic game.  

When he's not thinking about the LSAT, Kyle is probably practicing yoga, meditating, tending his herb garden, running, speaking French, making artisanal bread, or doing any other sort of old lady thing.

Christine OConnell

Christine is a native Rhode Islander and suggests you Google “stuffies” right away. 

Prior to taking the LSAT, Christine served as a chaser for the Rhody Ridgebacks. She bid adieu to her dream of going pro after being sidelined due to a bludger injury. But being an LSAT instructor is good too.

For her LSAT prep, Christine mimicked the earthworms from her seventh-grade science experiment, spending several weeks in a cool, dark place surrounded by newspapers and compost. She does not recommend this strategy, although it did result in her earning a 173, so who knows.

Christine much prefers the holistic approach that Blueprint offers. She likens the LSAT to the Cobra Kai Dojo members in the Karate Kid, whose bravado masks deep flaws and insecurities. She strives to help students find their inner Daniel-Sans by developing skills that will carry them through law school and beyond.

You can usually find Christine near the Charles Mingus section at a local record store, bemoaning the fact that Buzzfeed’s algorithm classifies her as elbow macaroni when she’s obviously gnocchi.

Branden Frankel

Branden started life in the small, sleepy, mountain community of Crestline, CA - the place where Lake Arrowhead dreams go to die.

After tumbling out of countless pine trees, Branden landed at UC Santa Barbara, graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy. He spent the next half decade seeking full time employment as a philosopher before realizing such work is rarer than a unicorn. Branden scored a 175 on the LSAT, got his JD from UCLA, and went on to practice patent law for a brief moment.

Branden, who has over five years of teaching experience, believes that any difficult LSAT concept can be clarified with a Star Wars analogy - mostly from Episodes IV - VI, occasionally from Episode III, but never, never from Episodes I - II. That leads to the dark side.

Maria LaBella

Maria can usually be found watching Legally Blonde, obsessing over her hometown of Pittsburgh, or running the National Mall while trying not to get hit by cars.

Her passion for the LSAT began with her five-year debate career, where she earned national accolades arguing about whether the presidential election should be decided by a lottery, how to best quell a zombie apocalypse, and other pressing issues. She recently interned for a senior federal judge, a civil rights law firm, and the Human Rights Campaign.

A former equity officer, Maria wants to make sure that every student is getting the support they deserve. She also genuinely likes the LSAT (leading to her stellar 173 score), and strives to create an upbeat, lighthearted classroom environment so that her students will too.

Maria’s guilty pleasures are overpriced cupcakes and Ryan Gosling. Unfortunately, she hasn’t had any luck with the latter. But she might bring cupcakes to class if her students agree to laugh at her jokes!

Alexander Nabavi-Noori

Alexander grew up in Palm Springs, CA—the land of Canadian tourists, spring breakers, and face-melting heatwaves. After a brief stint between the ages of 8 and 18 where he thought he would be an engineer, his high school English teacher convinced him he’d be a better lawyer (debatable).

Three weeks after arriving at UCLA, Alexander changed his major from Electrical Engineering to Political Science and Economics, being quoted as saying “Math is gross, get me out of here.” After spending four months in isolation studying for the LSAT and driving all of his friends and family crazy, he scored a 174. 

In the classroom, Alexander likes to make everything, even the LSAT, seem interesting and fun for his students and encourages everyone to feel confident that they can succeed while keeping things light-hearted with a mixture of self-deprecating jokes and corny one-liners. He firmly believes that mastering the LSAT is like becoming a good public speaker: imagining LSAC in their underwear as they write questions about how many different ways Fritz, Gina, Helen, and Jerry can carpool to work together.

When he’s not thinking about the LSAT, Alexander likes to spend his time in coffee shops or Barnes and Noble bookstores reading newspapers, sipping coffee, and ruminating on what it means to be a millennial.

Julien Hawthorne

Julien’s resume rivals those of many first term congressmen, with experience waiting tables at Planet Hollywood, tending livestock on organic farms in NorCal, and delivering groceries to young urban professionals in Los Angeles. Next up was either becoming Blueprint instructor or an exotic dancer – to him that dream isn’t dead, only dormant.


His love of narcissism, hermitage, and patriotism reached new heights as an English Literature and American Studies double major at Columbia University. He decided to take the LSAT after a serious misreading of reading Franz Kafka’s The Trial, and scored a 170.

Julien considers of his role as LSAT instructor like that of a Calvinist preacher. After you have accepted your own logical depravity and inherent wickedness in the face of a world characterized by LSAC’s extensive bureaucracy, he will fill you with LSAT knowledge and grace, which will inevitably bring you closer to god. And by god, he means law school. Or does he?

When he is not teaching the LSAT, Julien sits in dark rooms reading Harold Pinter plays while sipping gimlets and eating fried chicken.

Aaron Cohn

A rare San Francisco native, Aaron manages to get paid in money and beer to play his double bass in establishments both sordid and respectable around the Bay Area.

Aaron majored in Music and minored in What Can I Use this Major for? at Stanford University. He found out the answer when he put his degree to practice by working as a maintenance guy for a private school. After tiring of early mornings and a key ring the size of Calcutta, he turned his attention to helping students with the LSAT. This was after scoring a 180 on his own LSAT, by the way.

Aaron thinks that studying for the LSAT is much like practicing a musical instrument: if you want to be able to do it quickly and accurately, you have to learn to do it slowly and accurately first. The difference is that musical success won't get you into the law school of your dreams. On the other hand, a stellar LSAT score is less likely to bring in groupies.

Aaron grinds the beans for his coffee by hand. For the past eight years, he's brought the same dedication verging on insanity to teaching the LSAT.
