Today’s post is a reminder of how important the LSAT is for law school applications, followed closely by why you therefore need to prep for it, and winding up with a discussion of why if you prep with a course, Blueprint is the way to go. How’s that for laying out a clear thesis?
If you don’t know yet, consider yourself informed that the LSAT is the single most important factor in law school applications. This is because of a variety of factors, including the difficulty of evaluating GPAs that differ enormously across multiple variables (strength of school, strength of major, grading inconsistencies, etc.), the fact that the LSAT is a good predictor of first year law school success, etc. Whether or not you like this, that’s the way it is in law school admissions right now. I personally think a pie eating contest would be an epic way to gain law school admittance, but I was overruled by the ABA.
