Why You Should Have Some “Fun” This Labor Day…Remember That Word?

Happy long weekend everyone! If you’re studying for the upcoming LSAT, you might find it a little bit difficult to take a day off. This post is meant to help you make the most of studying on Labor Day (while maybe still having some fun). I’m also going to touch briefly on my approach to days off more generally.
Now, before we go any further, please don’t be the person that brings an LSAT book to a Labor Day barbecue. You don’t want to be that person. Also, please don’t be the person who only talks about the LSAT. You don’t want to be that person either. With that said, there are a couple things I would recommend doing to get the most out of your (hopefully) abbreviated studies on Labor Day.

True Life: I Was an LSAT Instructor

This post is dedicated to the man behind the curtain, so to speak. If you’re studying for the LSAT, you might be curious about what it’s like to actually teach the test. I’ll be giving you my insights on becoming a Yoda… or Mr. Miyagi… or… Rafiki of the LSAT world (if you don’t understand any of those references, you need to watch more movies). I’ll also briefly discuss the benefits and downsides of teaching a class.

First things first: To become an LSAT instructor, you need to perform well on the LSAT (Captain Obvious here, saying “you’re welcome, everyone!”). A solid score on the LSAT is a good marker of your ability to understand the concepts. With that said, scoring a 180 – that’s a perfect score, just so we’re clear – doesn’t mean that you’ll get hired as an instructor; you also need to show that you can actually instruct effectively. Ideally, instructors can communicate clearly and succinctly and present the material with humor and charisma.

Price Reduced for Blueprint’s September LSAT Online Course

If you’re still thinking about taking the September LSAT but haven’t started studying, it’s time to buckle down and make a decision.

Allow us to make it a little easier for you.

Blueprint LSAT Prep’s online course for the September LSAT is now available for a reduced price of $650. That’s a savings of $200 off the original price. However, it’s only for a limited time (and you’ve got less than two months to prepare for the exam, anyway), so act fast. You can enroll here.


If you’re looking for something to spend that extra $200 on, why not sign up for one of our upcoming law school application workshops?

5 Things Every Newcomer Should Know About the LSAT

It’s time to start prepping for the June LSAT. Some of you will be taking the LSAT for the second or third time. Others have no idea what they’re in for. If this is your first encounter with the LSAT, then this post should help.

Here are 5 things every newcomer should know about the LSAT:

1) Studying For The LSAT Will Make You Smarter

The LSAT is nothing like your traditional college exam. There will be no info-dumping frenzy. There will be no long list of facts, or vocabulary to memorize. Specialized knowledge of bee behavior or electoral systems won’t help – and might actually hurt. Instead, the LSAT will test your ability to – well, frankly – spot B.S.

Spring 2014 Blueprint LSAT Prep Courses Set to Tip Off

So your bracket’s busted. You’re not going to win Warren Buffet’s billion dollars. It’s OK. There are plenty of other ways to earn that much dough.

Some are even legal.

For example, as an attorney you could work 100,000 court cases in one year at $10,000 a pop. You might have to pull in some long hours, but think of all the yachts you’ll buy but never have time to use!

Alas, before you become a lawyer, you’ll need to go to law school, and before you go to law school, you gotsta take the LSAT. That’s where we come in.

Blueprint LSAT Prep’s spring classroom courses to prepare for the June LSAT are about to tip off. In fact, one of our Berkeley LSAT prep courses and one of our UCLA LSAT prep courses have already tipped. But no worries. You can still sign up for one of these other upcoming spring LSAT prep courses, listed here with the instructor and start date:

Blueprint LSAT Prep’s New Website is Live!

As long as you’re not Facebook, Twitter or the Affordable Care Act, a redesigned website will never make national news.

Today, that changes.

Alert the presses, folks: Blueprint LSAT Prep has a brand new website — one that is somehow cooler-looking than our last one and loaded with a slew of new features. After a little maintenance, we went live this morning, so feel free to take the new site for a test spin. (Apologies ahead of time for any temporary bugs.)

Here’s an overview of all the changes:

It’s starts with the URL. Instead of www.blueprintprep.com, we can now be found at www.blueprintlsat.com.

What to Do if You’re Itching to Start October LSAT Prep

Now that we’re well into July, there are only a couple weeks until most of Blueprint’s live summer LSAT Prep classes start. As we told you yesterday, there are a couple October LSAT administrative items that you should take care of as soon as possible.

However, there are probably some eager beavers out there who also want to start studying for the October LSAT this very minute. To you I say: 1) you’re crazy, and 2) I’m here to help.

First of all, you may be tempted to buy some LSAT prep materials from other companies to get a head start on studying. I strongly discourage doing so — not because there is anything wrong with other companies’ materials, but because the Blueprint LSAT Prep method is unique to Blueprint LSAT Prep, and you don’t want to pick up any bad habits or confuse yourself before the class starts.

October 2013 LSAT – The Time to Start is Now

If you’re going to take the October 2013 LSAT, now is the time to start forming your plan of attack. If you’re going to take a prep course, most of them (including Blueprint’s) will start sometime this month. In other words, it’s time to sign up…now.

Secondly, you should pick a test center as soon as possible. While the deadline for registration is a ways off, the test center that you want may fill up fast. If you don’t get a test center close to home, you’ll likely end up having to sleep in a hotel room the night before the exam and eat a less-than-satisfying breakfast the morning of. In addition, failing to book your desired test center will make it much more difficult for you to do a practice run of your test day activities, and doing so will require a lot more driving.
