Best of Luck From Your Friends at Blueprint!

This is it!

You’ve put in a whole lot of hours (76 hours of lessons, another 24 hours of practice exams, plus countless hours of homework and extra practice), you’ve laughed and maybe cried, you’ve felt the frustration of a disappointing practice exam score and the elation of a substantial improvement. And now — a mere 24 hours from the writing of this post — you’ll be facing your greatest challenge of your young life thus far: The Law School Admission Test.

You can do this!

You’ve struggled, studied, and burned the midnight oil. You’ve laughed at the absurdity of question after question, passage after passage. You pumped your fist in triumph over a great practice score increase, and you’ve cried (admit it) when you’ve seen your score stagnate or worse. All that is past. This weekend is your last to pack in a little bit more studying, maybe one more practice exam, and then, on Monday:

Why is the June LSAT on a Monday afternoon?

The June LSAT is the only one offered in the afternoon instead of the torturously early morning. But do you know why LSAC has provided this unexpected bounty to us unworthy paeans?

My investigation yielded no insight into the minds of the creators, so we must conjecture in order to grasp at divine knowledge.

Blueprint Instructor: How I Nailed My First LSAT

A few weeks ago, Blueprint LSAT instructor Branden Frankel shared his tale about the first time he took the LSAT. Branden exemplifies the laid-back, West Coast, chill approach to one’s first LSAT attempt. I, on the other hand, exhibited the uptight, Type A, super paranoid (but prepared!) approach to LSAT-taking. (Hmm, maybe I should have become a lawyer after all….)

Back in the day, I was a fresh-faced, bright-eyed pre-law student with big dreams and an even bigger stack of #2 pencils. I had taken an LSAT course with this company I’d never heard of prior to researching classes called Blueprint LSAT Prep. I had been scoring well on my practice exams and was feeling pretty confident about my odds of getting the score I wanted.

Blueprint Instructor: What I Learned On My First LSAT

Taking an official LSAT is so awesome that I did it more than once. In fact, I did it three times!

Okay, maybe awesome is not the word. However, taking the exam is a singular experience, and I’ll give you a brief rundown of how it went on my first journey into the dark heart of the LSAT. Even better, I’ll tell you what I learned and how I did things differently thereafter.

The first time I took the exam was in October, 2001 at UC Irvine. Please do not try to calculate my age given this information. You’ll need serious calculus skills, and, if you’re reading this, chances are you’re a humanities major who needs a calculator to leave a tip. (Just double the tax, professor.)
