Welcome, everyone pursuing a leghoul career, to Halloween Week. For this week, we’ll be transforming, like Michael Jackson into Werewolf Michael Jackson, into Ghost Strongly Supported and Booprint LSAT as we celebrate the spookiest aspects of the LSAT, law school (… we mean law ghoul), and the legal field. Today, we’ll give you some help with our pumpkin carving contest.
Today is the last day of Halloween Week at Ghost Strongly Supported, which means it’s soon time to take off the masks we donned for this ghastly holiday and return to being Most Strongly Supported, your premier stop for LSAT tips and law school news.
But it also means that today is the last day of the contest we’ve been running for the last week. You have until miiiiiidnight (Pacific Time) tonight to post your best LSAT- or law-related costume or pumpkin carving to Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter using #booprint. We’ll be choosing our favorite one and rewarding that lucky person with a $100 Amazon gift card.
Last week we gave you some last-minute ideas for costumes, so today we’ll give you a little assistance with the pumpkin carving. Below you’ll find some stencils for LSAT- and law-themed pumpkin carvings. Use one of these to carve a pumpkin tonight, snap a pic, win a gift card, and inspire a generation of trick-or-treaters to pursue a legal career in which they will tirelessly uphold the norms of justice and equality. Sounds like a productive evening.
Just right click, save as, and then print the below images to use as your stencils. The black parts are for carving, and the gray parts are for scraping.
If you’ve never carved a pumpkin before, or if you were just given license to use sharp objects, may we suggest starting with this stately courthouse stencil? This carving just requires you to carve a bunch of straight lines, and you don’t have to be Benjamin Carve-dozo to do that.
For our intermediate pumpkin carvers, we offer you a stencil of a gavel, the symbol of a judge’s role as a neutral magistrate in a legal proceeding. In this stencil, you’ll find Order! Order!-ly lines to follow, which should leave you with a clean-looking jack-o-law-ntern.
Scales of Justice
For our more advanced carvers, this stencil of the scales of justice requires you to navigate some tricky curves and do a little scraping on top of your carving. If you’re able to successfully pull this one off, the scales of this contest might tip in your favor.
And for our 170+ carvers, here’s a stencil of a dinosaur, a staple topic of the LSAT. Whether it’s a Logical Reasoning question that posits that “drug overdoses” caused the extinction of the dinosaurs, a dinosaur-themed Reading Comprehension passage about how a “diapir” eruption killed the the dinosaurs (gross), or the infamous mauve dinosaur Logic Game, these prehistoric creatures are all over this exam. So honor their omnipresence with this intricate stencil, which requires a lot of scraping.
Like the LSAT, we’re enamored with legendary civil rights attorney and Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. So for you 180-level carvers, if you can figure out how to carve this, you may just have this contest in the bag.
And that’s it … don’t forget to post by midnight PT tonight using #booprint for a chance to win a $100 Amazon gift card!
