Will the Digital LSAT Change Law School Admissions?

To put it politely, the legal industry is not exactly known for its rapid adaptation to change. In light of that fact, with the recent changes to the LSAT — the shift to a digital format and the addition of twice as many testing dates per year — there are seismic shifts happening in the prelaw world this year.

A New Day in LSAT: A New Test Calls for a New Online LSAT Course & Updated LSAT Prep

2019 is a year of change in the world of LSAT, not the least of which is the move to a tablet-based test and a take-home Writing Sample. Law school applications are also on the rise and the GRE is still trying to be “a thing.” Elsewhere, people are busier than ever and sacrificing quality for the sake of flexibility is becoming the norm.

At Blueprint, we’re at the forefront of the LSAT and the law school admissions process as a whole. Our online platform has been setting standards for online LSAT prep for years and our methodologies have been helping students average 11-point score increases. Still, we heard our students’ need for more modern, affordable, and flexible LSAT prep. The LSAT is changing, so we are too. Introducing: The new Blueprint Online Anytime Course.

Top 5 Things You Need to Know About the Digital LSAT

After years of “will they/won’t they,” LSAC has finally decided to enter the 21st century and move away from the paper-and-pencil LSAT beginning in July 2019. We can grumble, we can complain, we can blame Gen Z, but love it or not, the LSAT digital revolution is coming. LSAC has been slowly releasing information bit by bit, and although we’ve diligently reported all the latest developments, it can still be a lot to digest at once. So, we’ve determined the top five things you need to know about the digital LSAT, regardless if you’re a seasoned LSAT vet or you’re taking the test for the first time this year.

Changes to the LSAT Writing Sample, Coming in June

Ever since LSAC announced that it would switch-up the format of the LSAT from the staid, old, traditional pencil-and-paper exam to the gleaming, new digital LSAT, we’ve been covering — quite extensively, I’d say — the changes coming in 2019. But we haven’t yet given proper due to the changes coming for the writing sample, which will debut in June 2019.

Classes for One of the LSAT Paper LSATs Start Soon

For the lucky few in college, your winter break has come to an end. We say “lucky” because I don’t think anyone would mind checking out from the routine for three weeks. The start of the semester and the new year brings forth ambitious resolutions and some stark reminders. For those interested in going to law school, one of those reminders is to take (or to retake) the LSAT.

Students signed up for the January LSAT have until today, January 11 at 11:59 pm Eastern Time, to change the test location or postpone the LSAT to another date (both requiring you to pay an extra $125). And today is also the deadline to withdraw from the LSAT altogether for a refund of $50.

You Can Now Test Out the Digital LSAT

When LSAC announced that the LSAT would switch to a digital format in July of 2019, we knew big changes were coming to this test. But some of us may have underestimated how significant these changes would feel.

The LSAT Bird Box Challenge

Because we the people love nothing more than a stupid, unnecessary, and potentially dangerous challenge, the nation has been swept by the Bird Box challenge, in which — inspired by the eponymous movie starring Sandy B. — people blindfold themselves and then attempt to do normal daily tasks, such as walking down the street or using the subway.

3 Small LSAT-Resolutions for the New Year

Earlier this week, we discussed some resolutions to help you improve your LSAT score, become fabulously wealthy, find a girl/boyfriend, and generally improve your life (non-LSAT results not guaranteed). But there are some other, smaller habits you can implement in 2019 that will help with your LSAT studying, though they won’t help so much with those other things.

But before we close the metaphorical test booklet of the year that was two thousand and eighteen, let’s get contemplative. Believe it or not, this LSAT blog has some stuff to say about the LSAT.
