The LSAT Prep Adventures of Cecilia Tsoukalos: Over and Out

Cecilia Tsoukalos is an employee of Blueprint LSAT Preparation’s main office. She enrolled in one of our spring courses and agreed to blog about her experience (under a pseudonym, of course). Catch up on her posts.

If you took the June LSAT you’ve no doubt had a few days to reflect and realize that you’re done prepping. No more reading comp passages about Thurgood Marshall and no more games where you have to set the lineup for a crazy-cool harmonica concert. As good ole Warren Harding might say, we now find ourselves returning to normalcy. Who am I kidding; kids who want to go to law school aren’t really that normal anyway.

The day we all had marked on our calendar for the past 2-3 months has come and gone.

The LSAT Prep Adventures of Cecilia Tsoukalos: Zombie Land

The only things in life that are certain are death and taxes… and the June LSAT… and the inevitable downfall of Lindsey Lohan’s career. As you well know, or should well know by this point, the LSAT is less than two weeks away. By now you should be figuring out exactly what areas you need to crunch down on before LSAT test day. This is the time to be honing on the skills that you’ve been putting off mastering. I’ll be spending my weekend on a date with diagramming. But it won’t be a date that you want to go on. It’ll be one of those dates where a friend you don’t know very well sets you up with a guy who chews with his mouth open and constantly talks about his mom. It will be ugly.

We’re so close to LSAT test day that it’s a good idea to spend some time thinking about what you’d like to do once the LSAT comes and goes.

The LSAT Prep Adventures of Cecilia Tsoukalos: Time Out

Y’all ever seen that movie where Brad Pitt plays a soap salesman operating a terrorist cell from the basement of a dilapidated house? As much as I’ll always love Fight Club, Tyler Durden was wrong when he said you are not a unique and beautiful snowflake. Surprise: in the LSAT world you really are! As you’ve made your way through the course it’s likely that you’ve started to figure out which question types you’re consistently performing better on.

If you have your schedule organized to the second and your shoes are arranged by shoelace length, chances are you find ordering games pretty self-explanatory. If you pay attention to minute details and remember when the girl sitting next to you last wore the same outfit, you’re probably owning the Reading Comp section.

The LSAT Prep Adventures of Cecilia Tsoukalos: That’s a Rap

The countdown continues, as we are less than 40 days away from the June LSAT. How are you feeling? Anxious? Stressed? Shock and awe? Most likely it’s a combo. But you shouldn’t be worried if you aren’t scoring a 170+ yet. All in good time, y’all.

I experienced my first ever LSAT dream the other night. I won’t go into to too many details, but it involved sharing a testing room with Snoop Dogg. In actuality my testing location will be in Inglewood, so it would have been more accurate had Tupac been in my dream, but I can’t get too technical with my subconscious. Snoop Dogg was sitting next to me and I kept asking him if he knew which section of the LSAT was the experimental. I would have rather dreamt of ponies, or James Franco, but instead I got the LSAT. If the LSAT is constantly on your brain/in your dreams, you’re probably doing something right.

The LSAT Prep Adventures of Cecilia Tsoukalos: Ready to Run

Cecilia Tsoukalos is an employee of Blueprint LSAT Preparation’s main office. She is enrolled in one of our spring courses and has agreed to blog about her experience (under a pseudonym, of course). Catch up by reading last week’s introductory post.

We meet again, fellow LSAT prep students. As most LSAT classes are well underway (those of you in our expansion locations are a bit behind the rest of us) you may notice that we’ve moved on from book one, the dinosaur era, and are wading through bubbling lava in book two. And it only took two weeks. If anyone else is shocked at how fast it went, let’s start a club. Just know that I get to be club president because it’s my blog post, excuse my totalitarianism.

How’s about we take a look back at everything we’ve worked through thus far.

The LSAT Prep Adventures of Cecilia Tsoukalos: Get-to-Know

Cecilia Tsoukalos is an employee of Blueprint LSAT Preparation’s main office. She is enrolled in one of our spring courses and has agreed to blog about her experience (under a pseudonym, of course). This is her first post.

Greetings, fellow LSAT students! I’ll be writing to you every so often documenting my time spent preparing for the June LSAT.

As many of you will surely agree, it’s difficult trying to juggle real life and preparation for a test that can potentially determine the course for the rest of your life. As a Blueprint staff member it’s part of my job to guide students through the LSAT process and help them understand that the LSAT is totally learnable. The LSAT is about how you think, not what you know.
