Classroom Courses for the June LSAT are here!

June 12 is closer than you think, and we’re gearing up to turn another round of LSAT beginners into LSAT ninjas across the country. A few of our classes have already started, but we’ve got a veritable landslide of LSAT course goodness coming your way soon. Here’s a list of classes starting in the next two weeks, and there’s probably one in your neighborhood:

HLS v. LSAC

Important news for people who hate the LSAT: Harvard Law School just announced that it will begin considering GRE scores in lieu of LSAT scores.

For the uninitiated, the GRE — Graduate Records Exam — is the standardized test that students headed for graduate school usually take. This is true for math majors and English majors alike. As you might have guessed from that brief list, the test is a broad survey of the skills necessary — or at least helpful — for school in general: verbal/written skills and quantitative skills. Missing from the GRE is the logic and argumentation bent of the LSAT.

When the “L” in LSAT stands for Lent.

An underappreciated aspect of studying for the LSAT is what you must give up. And so now — with Lent upon us — it seems like a good time to talk about… simplifying.

Let me start by saying that I’m not Catholic, and so my experience with Lent is from the outsider’s perspective. But it seems to me that simplifying — getting rid of some things in life that might be slowing you down — is a great exercise, one that could be applied to the intensive period of preparing for the LSAT.

February LSAT Scores Are In

In the world of law school admissions, the release of February LSAT scores is something of a watershed moment. For the vast majority of law schools, February is the last exam they’ll consider for admission in the current cycle. Which means it might be time to face facts.

(Of course, some of you took the February exam for consideration next year. You people are really early, and super type-A to boot. This article is not about you.)

A month ’til spring classes? But I wanna study now!

If you’re taking a Blueprint LSAT class, you may be wondering what you should be doing before class starts. You don’t need to do anything to prepare — the class is designed to take you from LSAT nobody to LSAT expert. So if you’d like to just pretend the LSAT isn’t coming up until your class starts, that’s fine. But if you’d like to get a head start, that’s fine, too. It certainly can’t hurt. Here are some ideas.

LSAT Fallacies in 140 Characters or Less

As you may have heard, the President of the United States has an active personal Twitter account. We all fondly remember the days when the tweets weren’t national policy, but rather the musings of the guy on the TV show with the inexplicable hair.

Love in the Time of LSAT

This is an awkward time of year for LSAT study, and this post is for those who love LSAT students. Romantically.

It may be that Bae took the February LSAT, and he/she is having some turmoil over the fact that scores haven’t been released yet. Now is a difficult time, and you have to be extra careful with your date plans and gift. So, here are some suggestions for the February LSAT survivor of you heart.

Decision Time

In a perfect world, it would rain donuts, we’d all be able to turn water into wine, and no one would ever have to wonder whether they should cancel their LSAT score. Unfortunately, we don’t live in a perfect world, but hopefully I can resolve any confusion on that last point for you.

In general, the bar for whether you should cancel your score is surprisingly high. There are several reasons for that: For one, it’s notoriously hard to judge how you performed on the LSAT based on how it felt.

So… We need to talk.

Are we alone? It’s just, y’know, I don’t want you to be embarrassed. Not that a small, um, score is something you should be embarrassed about, just… I know you’re self conscious and all.

You haven’t gotten your February score back yet — maybe you even canceled already — but you know things didn’t go as well as you’d hoped. If this were September or even December, I’d say, “Cheer up! There’s always next time!” Well, there is always next time, but we’re getting to the point where LSAT next time means law school next year.
