BPPhank-lsat-blog-instructor-get-to-know-boston-washington-dc
At Blueprint LSAT Prep, nobody passes instructor training without showing at least a little personality. It’s one of the many requirements that make Blueprint LSAT Prep instructors the best in the biz.

It was also the inspiration for the latest series here on the LSAT blog — Blueprint LSAT Prep Instructor Get-to-Know. Last week, we had the first installment of summer LSAT course instructor profiles. Today, it’s number two of Blueprint LSAT Prep’s Instructor Get-to-Know:

Blueprint’s Boston LSAT Prep:

LAURA SANTOSKI:

1) What’s playing on your iPod/Spotify/radio the most these days?
Someone made a Spotify playlist of every “Now That’s What I Call Music” CD ever, and I can’t stop listening to it. It’s bringing back memories of being 10 and jamming to “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It)” on repeat on my Discman.

2) You’re on death row (shame on you!). What’s your last meal?
Probably a lobster roll and fried clams. The best part about working for Blueprint in Boston is my proximity to fresh and delicious seafood. (That same proximity is not so good for my waistline or for my wallet, but if I’m on death row I won’t have to worry about such things.)

3) Which famous person would you marry right now, no questions asked, and why?
John Krasinski. I mean, who wouldn’t marry John Krasinski? I bet even the straight guys out there are agreeing with me on this one. He’s adorable, funny, good-looking. John, if you’re reading this, holla at me in the comments so I can wow you with my knowledge of combining quantifiers!

4) If you had a time machine, when/where would you visit, and why?
I’ve been living in Boston for less than a year, and it’s still really interesting to me that so many historical events took place right on the streets where I’m rushing to get to work on time, or stumbling home from a bar, or doing other normal day-to-day things. So I’d want to go back to Boston during revolutionary times just to check it out – but I’d definitely want to be able to come back to our time period afterwards, because I think being a woman during in the 18th century probably sucked. (See also this relevant Louis CK clip.)

5) What’s your best LSAT story?
I was so nervous before I took the LSAT that I woke up literally every hour the night before the test, petrified that I would sleep through the multiple alarms I had set. I also was paranoid that something catastrophic would happen to the subways that morning that would make me late, so I left plenty of travel time. So much time, in fact, that I showed up to the LSAT test center a full hour before the doors even opened. Basically, I was a paranoid mess (although everything worked out okay!). And I still, almost two years after taking the LSAT, have occasional nightmares about being late to my LSAT test center and missing the test.

Blueprint’s Washington DC LSAT Prep:

MARK SALVADOR:

1) What’s playing on your iPod/Spotify/radio the most these days?
Ja Rule Pandora. For some reason I still pretend I’m still in middle school (the glory days).

2) You’re on death row (shame on you!). What’s your last meal?
Chicken tenders (I’m five years old) and fries with old bay, Coke Zero (low-cal even in death!), and a brownie sundae.

3) Which famous person would you marry right now, no questions asked, and why?
Selena Gomez. If she can hang with Biebs, you know she’s a keeper.

4) If you had a time machine, when/where would you visit, and why?
I’d go back about five years and start betting on every sports game I know, like Biff in Back to the Future 2.

5) What’s your best LSAT story?
My first class I was so nervous and I forgot to bring a whiteboard eraser, so I used a black sock instead. I ended up getting the dry erase marker “dust” all over my hands, and because I was nervous I kept touching my face. When the class ended, my first feeling was relief and excitement; I thought I had done a great job and the class responded well. Then I walked to the bathroom and realized I looked like a coal miner.

Stay tuned. Over the next several weeks, we’ll be profiling each of our 30+ instructors on the LSAT blog. If you want a head start, read more about all of Blueprint LSAT Prep’s instructors.
