A. Well, they came a bit earlier than announced, but a hearty congratulations to everyone receiving their Feb 2018 LSAT scores. Hopefully all of you got good news last night, but if you didn’t, you have June or July (and more options than ever) to try again. @Official_LSAT

B. To those of you who are planning to start studying for the LSAT soon, or for those of you who might want to try things differently after the Feb exam, or for those of you who got your Feb score back and are now starting the application process — nearly everyone reading this blog, we presume —- check out the two webinars we’re holding on Thursday, March 15th. By attending either you’ll get a $300 discount on any Blueprint classroom course or a $75 discount on the first month of an online course subscription. Blueprint LSAT

C. No matter how the February LSAT went, it could not have gone worse than this poor 1L’s torts final, which she had to take after being hit by a car. Above the Law

D. The future of the legal field is female: A study shows that there are now more women enrolled in law school than ever before. Enjuris

E. Stay safe, friends in the Northeast. NY Times

Understanding Your LSAT Score: The “Curve,” Explained

In a surprise move, LSAT scores were released late last night (so much for day-old promises, LSAC), which means a bunch of LSAT students have a shiny new LSAT score.

A. Next Thursday, March 15th, join us for webinars on the LSAT and law school admissions process. I mean, you can say no, and not know how to start studying for the LSAT or compile your law school apps, or get the $300 discount on any Blueprint classroom course or $75 discount on the first month of an online subscription that all attendees will receive. But that would be ill-advised. Blueprint LSAT

B. Not good news for the makers of the LSAT: they have been held in contempt for violating court-ordered accommodations requirements. Law.com

C. The Utah Bar — from the wholesome land of Utah, of all places! — just emailed a nude photo to every attorney in its great state. Above the Law

D. The perpetually in-legal-trouble Martin Shkreli must turn over $7.4 mil to the U.S. as part of his fraud conviction. Hope the feds are fans of unreleased records from past their prime rappers, because if Shkreli’s forced to use his assets to cover the cost, the government might get his copies of the one-of-the-kind Wu Tang album or Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V.

Over the last couple weeks, I’ve gone over the “myth” that the first year of law school is incredibly rigorous and the “myth” that law school hiring is most dependent on your first semester’s grade. Unfortunately, both of those turned out to be more fact than fiction.
