What I Learned From Bombing the LSAT

As part of a continuing series of LSAT diaries, new Blueprint instructor Andrew Kravis tells us about the lessons he learned from his first LSAT. Find thoughts from two other instructors in Part 1 and Part 2.

The first time I took the LSAT, I was 19. It was the fall of my junior year of undergrad at the University of Michigan, and I was set to graduate the following spring with an English degree and a foggy idea of what I wanted to do with my life. As an insecure kid who measured his self-worth entirely on the basis of academic performance, naturally I locked in on applying to master’s programs. I researched the best schools for comparative literature and queer theory, booked campus visits, and set dates to take the GRE and the GRE Subject Test in Literature in English.
