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.

Heed Caution When Scouring Law School Discussion Boards

Like most Blueprint LSAT Prep instructors, I did not originally sign up for the LSAT just for kicks or because I have a deep love of standardized testing. When I enrolled in my own Blueprint LSAT Prep class, I intended to apply to law school that fall.

In a turn of events that my students find appalling, I ended up getting a 178 LSAT score after taking a Blueprint LSAT Prep course — but decided not to apply to law school after all. But I’m not writing this post to brag about my LSAT score (or not primarily for that reason, anyway). Instead, having once been in your shoes, I want to discuss an ailment that afflicts some people who are applying to law school.

Let’s call it “forum frenzy.”

Perhaps you’ll recognize the symptoms.

June LSAT Prep Must: The Blueprint for LSAT Logic Games

It’s an interesting time in the world right now. There’s no Pope. Justin Bieber is in the early stages of his downfall. And Kim Jong-un is threatening to nuke America — despite Dennis Rodman’s best(?) efforts to convince him otherwise.

Also, the transition into June LSAT prep mode is happening right now. Law school applications numbers are expected to continue to fall, so most people taking the June LSAT really want to get into law school. As always, the higher your LSAT, the better your chances of admission. But if you want a high LSAT score, it’s going to take some work. And some help.

Enter: The Blueprint for LSAT Logic Games — the new LSAT book from Blueprint LSAT Prep.

How I Scored a 180 on the LSAT

When people read about my LSAT score (180), they often ask, “How the hell…?”

That’s a good question, and one I don’t even know if I can answer to anyone’s satisfaction. Gator meat, though, played a large role.

I decided to go to law school after graduation rather late in the game. Until the end of my junior year, I was planning to go into pharmaceutical research (hence the biochemistry degree). It sounded like a great plan.

Then, I spent a semester in a lab.

It’s hot, sweaty, and mostly boring. You sit around measuring out miniscule amounts of catalysts, and then wait around for your reaction to finish.
