February LSAT Prep Classes Start Next Weekend!

With just one week to go until the December LSAT, it’s almost time to turn our attention towards the next administration.

Some of you may be studying for the December 6th LSAT and feeling utterly unprepared; if that’s the case, you may want to weigh the pros and cons of postponing your test. Other readers may already be prepping for the February LSAT, and wondering how you can avoid ending up in that “utterly unprepared” boat.

Either way, I’d suggest checking out Blueprint’s winter course offerings. We’re currently offering $100 off any course with the discount code BPFEB.

What Kim Kardashian’s Butt Can Teach You About The LSAT

Kim Kardashian’s backside has changed a lot over the years. Like your LSAT skills, it started small and simple. But just as your LSAT knowledge will eventually grow to be large and well-rounded, Kim’s buns have transformed into the internet-breaking phenomenon we all know and… well, maybe not love, so let’s just stick with “know.”

Believe it or not, that’s not the only thing we can learn about LSAT prep from Kim’s well-oiled globular assets.

There Will Be Ups and Downs
Kim’s bon-bon didn’t make a smooth progression to Sir Mix-a-Lot approval. There were plenty of ups and downs along the way as Kim shaped her badonk into its current shelf-like architecture.

Chill Out: The Day Before The LSAT

The LSAT is tomorrow. You’ve been through a lot already. You’ve gazed into the abyss, and saw fractal geometry and a mauve dinosaur gazing back at you from the darkness.

You’ve come to fear and worship your LSAT instructor. You may have sent them some poetry, and a panicked 4 AM email or three. Okay, that stuff was kinda weird, but we get it. You weren’t yourself. LSAT prep is rough.

But now is the time for recovery. You need to be at your best tomorrow; so you’re not gonna study anymore. You will rest.

Like a word class athlete, you’ve spent the last several months preparing your body, your mind, and your clear plastic Ziploc bag. Today you deserve a training montage, a little extra sleep, and to catch up on your shows.

Feeling The Feels: Two Weeks From The LSAT

We have two weeks until the September LSAT. I often see similar intellectual and emotional reactions in students at this point in their LSAT prep – people start to get little nutty. “I wonder how well I’d score on the LSAT if I just took some amphetamines?” “If my LSAT instructor threw on a wig and wore a dress, he could just take the test for me!”

Not to worry: it’s completely normal to feel anxious or even miserable at this point. For most of you, your highest practice LSAT scores are still about a week away. But without a reassuring practice test score or two, thinking of taking the real thing is quite unnerving.

You may be thinking, “If I’m not where I want to be right now, should I just postpone?”

Maximizing the Last Month of LSAT Preparation

It’s the final countdown (until the September LSAT). With just one month of study time remaining as of today, now is a great time for students to take stock of their progress and evaluate the best ways to proceed with their studies.

Where You Should Be
When I took the LSAT, I carefully kept up with my Blueprint course and saw some improvements fairly early on, but I was never sure if I was improving quickly enough. In retrospect, here’s what I would’ve told myself one month out from the exam to calm my nerves:

First off, don’t worry too much about performances on practice tests. You should see your biggest improvements in the final two weeks before the exam. If you’re not where you want to be at this juncture, you can use that as motivation to study harder, but don’t let yourself panic.
