Is this year’s application cycle going to be much more competitive?

Michael Spivey, one of the most well-known law schools admissions consultants, just released some data on the number of LSAT test takers this year and the current admissions cycle. Unsurprisingly, the numbers are up across the board, continuing a recent trend. But after years of law schools having trouble getting “good” applicants with high LSAT scores, the number of people applying to law school with scores between 165 and 180 has increased disproportionally this year.

Applying After the December LSAT

A few months ago, I went fishing for the first time in a couple years. I got up early, grabbed my pole, walked down to the water, and got set up before dawn. I had the most success in the two hours after sunrise — fish are usually more active right after the sun comes up. People who came later still caught fish, but their window of opportunity was smaller.

DOs and DON’Ts of Your Personal Statement

As the Immortal Bard once stated, “Now is the winter of our discontent.” For those of you working on your personal statements can probably relate to his sentiment all too well. For me, writing my personal statement was the worst part of the application process. From coming up with a topic to proofreading it a million times, it was truly a harrowing experience.

Don’t forget — this Saturday is Southwestern Law Day

A reminder to all of those who will be in Los Angeles this weekend: On Saturday, Southwestern Law School is holding the appropriately named Southwestern Law Day. That’s a whole day, from 1:30-6:30 pm, for prospective law students to learn about getting into law school, succeeding as a law student, and what it’s like being an attorney.

Holiday Savings Come Early with Next Week’s Webinars

As a proud American capitalist, it is almost time for one of my favorite events of the year. I know you’re probably thinking “Black Friday,” but no. I am referring to the far superior Cyber Monday. All the deals without any of the human interaction or potential for stampedes — what could be better?

In keeping with the “cyber” part of “Cyber Monday,” Blueprint is offering two webinars for your viewing pleasure.

RSVP to Our Two Upcoming Webinars!

The beginning of November always brings to light one of the most important debates in American culture: When does the holiday season actually begin? Is it after Halloween (no), or does the season not truly start until after Thanksgiving (yes)?

Okay, so it’s not really a debate, because the people who start putting up holiday decorations right after Halloween are flat-out wrong. And, similarly, there’s no debate over whether our upcoming free web seminars will be helpful to all the pre-law hopefuls out there!

Last chance to RSVP to the webinars we’re putting on tomorrow!

Law school hopefuls, do you want to start studying for the LSAT and begin the application process, but are a little unsure of how to begin? Have you tried to do online research, but been overwhelmed by the vast amount of difficult to understand and occasionally contradictory advice? Do you want to ask someone how to start the admissions process, or where to begin with the LSAT, but you’re not sure whom to ask? Do you even fear the prospect of leaving your own home to acquire said information?
