The Deal With That Trading Buildings Game

It’s rare in this world to find something that everyone can agree upon. In the hours after the December 2016 LSAT, however, we found something that fits the bill: the Logic Game about companies trading buildings was all kinds of f***ed up. Well, last week, as happens every year this time, the exam was released. And, of course, we got our grubby little hands on it immediately to take a gander at this oddity. To be sure, this game was weird.

The Makers of the LSAT Are Playing (Logic) Games With Your Head

There have been some weird logic games lately. For a very long time, from the late 1990s until a few years ago, it seemed as if logic games had standardized. The vast majority of logic games asked you to put things in order, in groups, or both. The exact kind of ordering or grouping varied from test to test, but relatively standard games dominated.

Sure, there were hard games. Every test has one. Some games were weird. But back then, most of the weird games were recognizable as tricky variations of normal games, with many of the same kinds of rules.

The Amazing Journey (From BP Student To Instructor)

Last week, I pulled back the curtain on the glamorous life of an LSAT instructor. I became an LSAT sensei after taking a course with Blueprint LSAT Prep, and as a result, I’ve experienced life on both sides of the podium – from both the instructor’s and the student’s viewpoint.

What to get the LSAT student who has everything?

For most, this time of years is joyous and rejuvenating, but, as everyone knows, that’s not the case for everyone. The February LSAT is not far off, and this is no time of rest for them. It’s a time of struggle. Therefore, LSAT students need gifts over the holidays, too, possibly more so than the average giftee. They’re people, not reptilians, at least for now. If you have an aspiring lawyer in your life, here are some ideas.

Do I have to study for the February LSAT over Christmas break?

Yes. Glad we got that out of the way. Now we can talk about how to do that without ruining the season. Here’s one quick and easy idea.

Make flashcards.

Yes, there is no technology whatsoever involved here, but it’s convenient and amazingly portable. Wanna study for thirty minutes while your SO shops it out? Then you can chill when you get home rather than worry.

LSAT Reading Comprehension: It Ain’t What You Think

It’s just words, right? WRONG. If you’re planning to take the LSAT, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve taken other standardized tests before — the SAT or ACT, perhaps even the GRE or GMAT. These tests all have one thing in common: reading comprehension. On the surface, all reading comp looks pretty similar. There’s a

What makes a “good” law school? And what makes a “good” job?

When I applied to law school, I was mostly concerned with one thing: getting a job. As a peripheral goal, I also wanted to get a job in California. But my main focus was on making sure that I would gain an offer of employment from a large law firm paying the market rate in a major industry. I knew I would be taking on debt to attend law school, and I wanted to be able to repay it quickly.
