RSVP to the LSAT Webinar This Saturday, November 18!

It isn’t easy to stay motivated and productive through the winter flu season and the rapid approach of the holidays. I know I’m counting down the days until it’s time to give thanks with our families while eating copious amounts of turkey (or for us vegetarians, usually just pie). The good news is that you can take full advantage of Blueprint’s upcoming webinar on the LSAT without even leaving the comfort of your Snuggie.

Attend either and you’ll get a $300 discount on our classroom course and a $75 discount on online subscription. Blueprint LSAT

E. In responding to the tragic shooting in Northern California, Trump forgot to change the name of the city when he copy-and-pasted an old Tweet he sent in response to Sutherland Springs, Texas shooting. This riled the feathers of a bunch of Twitter users, but isn’t the bigger problem that there are enough of these that copy-pasting becomes necessary? NY Post
