Catching Up if Your LSAT Class has Already Started

Here we are, the October LSAT is ten weeks away, and Blueprint LSAT Prep classes have mostly started. (See below for a list of classes that started this weekend.) Before you despair and ask your friends to keep sharp objects away from you, let us reassure you: It’s not too late to sign up! Even if the class of your dreams started over the weekend, you’ll be able to catch up, no sweat. Here’s how.

The first class session is a practice test. If you miss this session, you won’t miss out on any material you need to learn. You can take the test on your own instead, timing sections for yourself.

The process is quite simple. Find a quiet place to work. Open Practice Exam One (you can print the test and answer sheet from your myBlueprint online account if you haven’t received your books), set a timer for 35 minutes, and do the first section. When time’s up, stop work.

The LSAT is Coming…dun dun dun

We’re just a few months away from the October LSAT, which means that our courses are ABOUT TO GO DOWN. If you’ve made the (right) decision to sign up with us, we’ve listed some tips to help you get the most out of your course and also some vital life-saving tips that’ll prevent you from totally sh*tting on yourself on that first day. We get it. It happens.

First, a bit about myself. Two years ago, I was gearing up to take an LSAT prep class with Blueprint. I was lucky enough to have Matt Riley as my instructor (he’s one of the founders of Blueprint—he is a fantastic teacher and a great guy). After completing the class and taking the LSAT, I landed a job as an instructor for Blueprint. I taught for a little while before accepting an offer of admission from Columbia. I am now gearing up to begin my second year there! All of that to say, I know the Blueprint course method from both the perspective of a student and the perspective of an instructor. Consider yourself a lucky reader.

Three Quick Tips for an October LSAT Retake

In any given year, a solid portion of October LSAT test-takers are comprised of people who took the June test, weren’t quite satisfied with their score, and want to give it another shot. If this describes you — or if you’re planning to just self-study and retake — here’s how to optimize your application timeline.

1) Start today

First and foremost, I should say that the LSAT should become high-priority as soon as you decide to retake. Because so many admissions officers have cited the LSAT as the single most important factor in evaluating an applicant, it is important that you resume your studies more or less immediately after you know you’re going for the October test. Don’t put it off.
