Holiday Savings Come Early with Next Week’s Webinars

As a proud American capitalist, it is almost time for one of my favorite events of the year. I know you’re probably thinking “Black Friday,” but no. I am referring to the far superior Cyber Monday. All the deals without any of the human interaction or potential for stampedes — what could be better?

In keeping with the “cyber” part of “Cyber Monday,” Blueprint is offering two webinars for your viewing pleasure.

Does the LSAT let the right kind of people into law school?

A few days ago, the Internet algorithms that know all too much about me directed me to this Vice article about taking the LSAT with no prep. I read it quickly and chuckled at the test takers who had trouble following the somewhat onerous but not terribly complicated test day instructions. I was also amused but not surprised to learn that LSAC employs “secret shopper” test takers to make sure that the proctors enforce regulations. But ultimately I found it a relatively flimsy premise for an article and moved on with my oh-so-exciting weekend.

RSVP to Our Two Upcoming Webinars!

The beginning of November always brings to light one of the most important debates in American culture: When does the holiday season actually begin? Is it after Halloween (no), or does the season not truly start until after Thanksgiving (yes)?

Okay, so it’s not really a debate, because the people who start putting up holiday decorations right after Halloween are flat-out wrong. And, similarly, there’s no debate over whether our upcoming free web seminars will be helpful to all the pre-law hopefuls out there!

Southern California: RSVP to Southwestern’s Law Day

Are you a prospective law student? Will you be in the LA area November 11? If so, you don’t want to miss Southwestern’s Law Day. It’ll be at Southwestern from 1:30 to 6 pm, and if you go you’ll get a $400 discount off a Blueprint classroom course. You’ll also get your application fee to Southwestern waived. With all those discounts you might even be able to fly to LA for the event and still come out ahead. But don’t book your tickets without sending your RSVP — the event may be free but you do need to let them know you’re coming.

What Your Favorite Halloween Candy Says About You

All Hallows’ Eve occurring on a Tuesday this year nicely bifurcated Halloween into two separate holidays. On Saturday, it was Adult Halloween (Halloweaned?), in which adults put on their most topical and/or sensual costumes (which reminds us, you still have time to post your best costume or pumpkin carving using #booprint to have a shot at winning a $100 Amazon gift card) and imbibed all matters of devilish elixirs. And the real holiday this Tuesday will be Kid’s Halloween (Halloweaning?), with age-appropriate costumes and candy and solicitations of tricks and/or treats.

Halloween Week continues here at Ghost Strongly Supported (speaking of which, have you entered our costume/pumpkin-carving contest yet??) with something truly spooky — we’ve got a super special set of Logic Games for you, hot and fresh out the proverbial kitchen.

We cooked up these games ourselves at Blueprint, using real LSAT logic games as an inspiration. If you’re truly stumped, we’ve provided some quick tips below to help you find deductions, but you should attempt the games on your own before checking out those hints.

A Look at the September 2017 LSAT: Reading Comp and Logic Games

Yesterday, we took a detailed look at the Logical Reasoning sections on the September 2017 LSAT. We found a set of sections that had a pretty typical distribution of question types, but that leaned heavily on conditionality. Overall, they were a set a pretty mild LR section. But what about the other two sections, Reading Comp and Logic Games? Everyone said the former was crazy difficult, and the latter crazy easy. We’ll dive into those, and this exam’s curve, below.
