What Would They Score on the LSAT: Breaking Bad Edition

In a scant two days, the long slog towards the beginning of the conclusion of Breaking Bad will finally be over. We will, at long last, find out what Hank decides to do when he finds Gale’s book in Walter’s bathroom. We will see what Walter decides to do with the immense pile of cash Skyler has stashed away in a storage locker. And now, with a little imagination, we’ll find out how Breaking Bad’s biggest characters would deal with the little ol’ LSAT and the preparation therefor:

Walter White: The (in)famous Heisenberg is nothing if not cold, calculating and meticulous. While his carefully laid plans generally encounter a hiccup or two (see the magnets and evidence room escapade), he either plans for or works his way out of every eventuality he faces.

How Would This Year’s Oscar Nominees Fare on the LSAT?

The Oscars are this weekend, so we here at Blueprint LSAT Prep will all be tuning in to watch the film industry collectively pat itself on the back. But who will win? Who will lose? Why should you care?

All good questions, so, using the powers of the LSAT, we’re here to answer them. Sort of.

Here are our predictions of how the fictional characters portrayed would do if the awards were based on their LSAT scores, and whether or not the actor actually deserves the Oscar. Which seems as good a measure as any, considering what a subpar year this was for movies.

Supporting Actor: Thaddeus Stevens (Tommy Lee Jones) — Lincoln

This one is pretty obvious, as Stevens is already a lawyer, and was one of the most important members of congress in the history of America.

Beloved Christmas Characters Take the LSAT

Christmas is around the corner, but if you’re reading this, then the visions dancing through your head are probably more centered around logic games and less around sugar plums. It doesn’t seem quite fair that you should be holed up studying for the LSAT while everyone else enjoys the holiday season, but once this is over, you’ll have the greatest gift of all – a beautiful new LSAT score. But until that happens, let’s stop and consider how Christmas’ cavalcade of characters would score on the LSAT.

LSAT Score Recap From Last Night’s Big Emmy Winners

Thanks to last night’s Emmy Awards, there’s a lot of happy actresses and actors with some flashy new hardware to show off today. For you LSAT test-takers, however, there’s still a couple weeks before you can flaunt your accomplishments to Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel, and E! News…or at least to your parents. Let’s take a second to see if our smug socialite counterparts over in Hollywood would still be so self-assured after a run-in with the LSAT.

Julianne Moore: Won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress on a Miniseries or Movie for HBO’s Game Change. This accomplished actress may actually be able to muster up a respectable LSAT score, but her character, Sarah Palin, wouldn’t be so fortunate. The North Idaho College grad would likely have some trouble with portions of the test relating to logic, bumping her score down to a 148.


What Would They Score on the LSAT: Batman Edition

The new Batman film The Dark Knight Rises opened today, and one question is on all of our minds: How would Gotham City’s finest (and most dangerous) have scored on the LSAT?

Well, I’ll tell you.

What Would They Score on the LSAT — Batman: 150. Bruce Wayne is rich, attractive, strong, and smart. But he’s also busy. Like, super busy. Because he has more important things to do (like saving Gotham City), he’d have no time to do his LSAT homework. And on LSAT test day, he’d probably start off strong (he’s a bright guy, after all) before leaving early because Bane blew up a football stadium.

What Would They Score on the LSAT — Harvey Dent: 178. Harvey Dent became District Attorney of Gotham City at the age of 26.

What Would They Score on the LSAT: Dallas Characters

If you’ve watched the characters in the 2012 revival of the TV show Dallas scheme to screw each other in business and, well, otherwise, you may have wondered what they would all score on the LSAT. What’s that you say? The LSAT never crossed your mind while watching Dallas?

Tough. Here are their LSAT scores*, anyway:

John Ross Ewing — Dallas LSAT score: 142. He’s brash, tempestuous and used to getting his way. While none of those things are necessarily deal-breakers for his LSAT score, he isn’t exactly a deep thinker, bro. Of the characters on Dallas, he’s the most likely to take personal offense at something in an LR question. LSAT test day would also be interesting, since it’s hard to imagine him sitting quietly and taking instructions from the LSAT proctors.

What Would They Score on the LSAT: NBA Playoffs Round II

The first round of this year’s NBA playoffs are in the books (finally), and the second round is underway. The defending champion Dallas Mavericks were eliminated in four games by the Oklahoma City Thunder, and the Chicago Bulls saw their season go down the pipes when star point guard Derrick Rose suffered a devastating knee injury. Now only eight teams remain.

I’ve already discussed the LSAT scores of Rose and other big names of round one, but what about round two?

Let’s check into the game:

TIM DUNCAN, San Antonio Spurs — 177

Oh, the Spurs.

What Would They Score on the LSAT: NBA Playoffs Edition

The NBA Playoffs tip off this weekend, and I’m so excited I could elbow someone in the head.

Among the notable storylines in the Western Conference this year are the veteran Spurs locking down the No. 1 seed, the high-flying Clippers returning to the postseason for the first time in six years, and the defending champion Dallas Mavericks limping in as the No. 7 seed because they spent too much time this season wiping down last year’s trophy. In the Eastern Conference, the Bulls earned the top seed, the No. 3 seed Pacers will face the Dwight Howard-less Magic, and the Knicks will battle LeBron James’s receding hairline and the Miami Heat.

Although most players didn’t graduate college, it takes brains to win in the NBA Playoffs.

What if the Billionaire Inventor of Spanx Had Aced Her LSAT?

Last week, Forbes published an article about Sara Blakely, the youngest female self-made Billionaire in the world. Sara made her fortune from her company Spanx, the ubiquitous lady-shaping underwear company. But Blakely didn’t always want to be an undergarment magnate. After graduating from Florida State University, she had planned to go to law school, but ran into the LSAT. After bombing the LSAT twice, she worked at Disney World before selling fax machines door-to-door. Then came the Spanx epiphany.

But what would have happened if she had actually done well on the LSAT? Let’s take a look at what could have been…

After taking the LSAT and scoring abysmally, Sara Blakely decides to enroll in a Blueprint LSAT class.

LSAT Score Predictor: Downton Abbey Edition

Continuing our tradition of predicting the LSAT scores of fictional characters from television shows, this week we turn our sights across the pond to Yorkshire, England. Just how would the residents of Downton Abbey fare in the face of our favourite standardised teste?

Earl Robert Crawley – 164
Robert Crawley, the head of Downton Abbey, is a surprisingly rational and forward-thinking man, especially for an aristocrat. Whether allowing his daughter to marry a commoner or turning his home into an infirmary, he’s shown that he isn’t too proud a man, and would make sure to study diligently. But he also has a pretty fatalistic streak, which we witnessed when he wouldn’t fight for Mary’s right to be able to inherit the estate. So he wouldn’t retake the test even though he could probably do even better. He’d also probably have a sudden outburst about the need to leave things as they are.
