You Didn’t Get The Score You Wanted. Now What?

January LSAT scores were released today, which means that after weeks of impatient waiting and hours of frantic email-refreshing, January test-takers have finally met their fates. Every time LSAC releases LSAT scores, recipients fall roughly into one of three camps:

Top 5 Things You Need to Know About the Digital LSAT

After years of “will they/won’t they,” LSAC has finally decided to enter the 21st century and move away from the paper-and-pencil LSAT beginning in July 2019. We can grumble, we can complain, we can blame Gen Z, but love it or not, the LSAT digital revolution is coming. LSAC has been slowly releasing information bit by bit, and although we’ve diligently reported all the latest developments, it can still be a lot to digest at once. So, we’ve determined the top five things you need to know about the digital LSAT, regardless if you’re a seasoned LSAT vet or you’re taking the test for the first time this year.

The LSAT Bird Box Challenge

Because we the people love nothing more than a stupid, unnecessary, and potentially dangerous challenge, the nation has been swept by the Bird Box challenge, in which — inspired by the eponymous movie starring Sandy B. — people blindfold themselves and then attempt to do normal daily tasks, such as walking down the street or using the subway.

3 Small LSAT-Resolutions for the New Year

Earlier this week, we discussed some resolutions to help you improve your LSAT score, become fabulously wealthy, find a girl/boyfriend, and generally improve your life (non-LSAT results not guaranteed). But there are some other, smaller habits you can implement in 2019 that will help with your LSAT studying, though they won’t help so much with those other things. If you’re studying for the LSAT this year, here are some things you should consider doing:

3 Resolutions for Pre-Law Students

There’s no doubt that 2018 was a weird year. From a student suing law schools for forcing them to take the LSAT to the proposed creation of a U.S. Space Force. However at the stroke of midnight last night, we ushered in 2019 with a flurry of fireworks and champagne bubbles, so you know what that means: new year, new YOU! If you didn’t reach your top LSAT score last year, 2019 brings nine chances. To help motivate you, we’ve come up with three resolutions for the new year that will make your studying a little easier, and, the best part is, you only have to keep these resolutions until you take the LSAT (unless you find that your life has vastly improved because of them).

There’s Only One Month Until the January LSAT?!

December 26 is known all over the globe as Boxing Day, but here at Blueprint, we know it for another reason: It marks exactly one month until the January 2019 LSAT. That means it’s time to set aside the presents, put down the cookies, and crack open those LSAT books again.

You can get a lot of studying done in a month, but you’ll want to make sure you’re making the most of it. Here are some things to add to your to-do list during this final month:

Learn About the Digital LSAT at Blueprint’s New Seminars

After LSAC made the rather small announcement earlier this year about transitioning the LSAT to a digital exam beginning in July 2019, questions have swirled around the changes: which test centers will have the digital LSAT, will all the LSATs be on tablets, can you choose if you want to take the LSAT on a tablet or on paper…etc. Students have also raised concerns about test day experiences, including if there will be scratch paper, screen readers, and more timing accommodations. To add to the excitement (or confusion), LSAC has also confirmed that the unscored writing sample will now be a take-home portion of the test.

We’ve already broken down many of these questions, but there’s clearly much more to unpack.

How to Review a Practice Exam

We’re getting into the last month before another LSAT, and that means practice tests are absolutely essential to folks preparing for the exam. Any student who’s taken a practice test is familiar with the unnerving process of calculating your own practice exam score. However, the LSAT practice exams are not like online quizzes where you inevitably find out that you would be a Hufflepuff in Harry Potter, and then move on with your day. Scoring is really just the first step in reviewing a practice exam if you want to reap the greatest benefit from your practice.
