Who Does Your LSAT Prep Course Hire?

Did you read the real live job posting seeking LSAT instructors above? If not, take a minute to familiarize (or perhaps horrify) yourself.

You want to be a lawyer. You need a great score on the LSAT to get into a great school to get a great job to be fabulously wealthy to show all those jerks at your high school reunion how much better you are at life than they are.

LSAT Survey: Students Value Prestige Above All Else

Every year, we here at Blueprint – in partnership with Above The Law’s Career Center – survey our LSAT prep students to get an idea of how they feel about some aspect of their law school journey. In the past, we’ve gathered their thoughts on everything from their admissions chances to the prospect of an online LSAT administration.

This year’s survey was sent to the thousands of students currently enrolled in our summer course, who are in the midst of preparing for the September 27th LSAT. It focused on how they plan to choose their law school, and the effect they believe that choice will have on their career prospects.
