Don’t Forget to Secure Your Spot to Next Wednesday’s Webinars!

Friendly reminder, everyone, to sign up for and attend the webinars on the LSAT and law school admissions that we’re hosting next Wednesday, May 16. These webinars will go over all the details you need to know about the LSAT and the law school application process. We could drone on about why it’s so helpful to know about these details before you start studying for the LSAT or gathering your application materials, but we’d prefer to speak in a language that you, the youth, understand:

RSVP to the Free LSAT and Admissions Webinars We’re Hosting Next Wednesday

Summer … a time when the weather goes up, your responsibilities go down, and the pursuit of good times and relaxation reins supreme. Unless, of course, your plans involve applying to law school in the fall. In which case, you’ll have more on your plate this summer than the most gluttonous relative at your family cookout.

Sign Up for Our May 16th LSAT and Admissions Webinars!

If you’re anything like me before my LSAT studies, you know that “webinar” is one of those techy, 21st century words, but you don’t know how it’s relevant to you. Put simply, a webinar is a seminar conducted over the internet web. And in the case of the webinars put on by Blueprint on May 16, they give you *free* LSAT and law school info *and* give you a discount on Blueprint LSAT courses.

Legal Field Trips: Appellate Litigation

For the last couple weeks, we’ve been doing a series on various areas of the law. So far, we’ve covered securities law and criminal law. This week we’re going to take up appellate litigation. While this is a relatively niche area, it is another one that a lot of people seem to talk about before and during law school.

What You Need to Know About Law School Scholarships

In 2012, President Obama told a group of college students: “Check this out, all right? I’m the president of the United States. We only finished paying off our student loans about eight years ago.” That means the President and First Lady were well into their careers, with a combined resume of civil rights attorney, law professor, politician, author, nonprofit director, dean of students, big-law lawyer, and more before they paid off their law school and undergrad loans in their forties. If you needed a clear picture of how law school loans could hang over you, even throughout a successful career … there you go. During my own law school application process, I was deeply concerned about how law school loans could inhibit me from pursuing a public interest law career, but I’m here to share my own success in the law school scholarship application process to encourage you to take advantage of the same programs.

The Interview Tips You Need on Your Way to Law School

Interviews — they’re a necessary part of any career, and particularly in the career of an aspiring lawyer. My own law school application adventure included numerous interviews related directly to my law school apps, and later on for scholarships. You reach a point where interviewing really does become a better experience and you learn something about what it takes to be truly effective when you have your moment to shine.

Avoiding the Lonely Lawyer Trap Begins in Law School

A recent study from the Harvard Business Review found that lawyers were in the loneliest profession. And while this info might make you think twice about choosing a career in the law, those of us who are determined to stick with a legal career should still be asking, where does this issue of lonely lawyers come from?

The Supposed Law School “Brain Drain”

There’s been some freaking out online about law school applications. In other news, they’re airing reality TV shows on Bravo. This time, the freak out is over the quality of law school applicants. Even as law school applications rebounded in 2017, the number of applicants from “top” undergraduate schools (literally just the Ivies plus Chicago, Duke, and Stanford) dropped. That number has dropped a lot since 2008.
