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.

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.

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.

The 2017-18 Law School Application Data Are In …

More people are applying to law school this cycle. Maybe it’s an improving job market. Maybe it’s a bunch of idealists inspired by politics. Maybe it’s both, and maybe some other things, too. But regardless, the law school admissions game just got a little more competitive.

A Law School Reverses Its Policy on Accepting the GRE

The law school admission process was shaken up this cycle with news that a slew of law schools would be accepting applicants taking the GRE, rather than just the LSAT. Well, some recent news out of George Washington Law School should give any law school applicant assurance that, between the two exams, the LSAT is still very much here to stay.

RSVP to the Webinars We’re Hosting on Thursday!

It’s March, which means there are a few things on your To Do list. Set your clocks ahead for daylight saving time (check). Remember to call it daylight saving time and not daylight savings time, because time is a construct and it is not trying to like, deposit daylight into a bank account at Wells Fargo (check). Fill out your college basketball springtime tournament of chaos bracket (we’ll get around to it). Remember that referring to said college basketball tournament as “M—- M——” risks infringing upon the NCAA’s intellectual property and courts legal action (check). Find something green to wear on St. Patrick’s Day (umm, I’m pretty sure I have an old t-shirt somewhere). Remember to Google why we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day so that one pedantic friend of yours doesn’t correct you on St. Patrick’s Day (still need to get around to that — I think it’s about snakes or Protestants or something though). And so on.
