The 3L Winter Break

The third year of law school is regrettably still a thing. Most people will line up jobs at the start of their second year, which leaves you wondering what the point of the third year is. At any rate, here’s what I’ve been doing with my third year.


Judging from Facebook statuses it seems like half the law school is studying or traveling abroad right now. I plan on taking my own trip to Japan in a few weeks. It’ll be my first time in the country and I’m extremely excited to try as much authentic Japanese food as time will allow.


What to get the LSAT student who has everything?

For most, this time of years is joyous and rejuvenating, but, as everyone knows, that’s not the case for everyone. The February LSAT is not far off, and this is no time of rest for them. It’s a time of struggle. Therefore, LSAT students need gifts over the holidays, too, possibly more so than the average giftee. They’re people, not reptilians, at least for now. If you have an aspiring lawyer in your life, here are some ideas.

YouTube Xmas Top Ten

We’ve already berated you (kindly) about studying over the Holidays. However, in this post – our last until Christmas is over – we’d like to give you an early present. Here’s a whole bunch of great videos to watch with the family this Christmas. What better gift could you have than an excuse to shush obnoxious family members – I’m lookin’ at you, Uncle Jeff! – for interrupting Christmas programming?

Seasons Greetings from Blueprint

Much has been written on the meaning of the holidays. Thanksgiving is easy; it’s right there in the name, and it’s a secular holiday. Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa on the other hand… Is it the particular religious/spiritual underpinnings of each? Or something more universal? Spending time with friends and family? And what about the New Year? Is it looking back on the year that just ended, in order to learn its lessons? Is it celebrating a (fairly arbitrary) fresh start?

It’s the most study-ful time of the year!

The holiday season is chock-full of lots of great stuff – drinking, eating, presents, friends, family, and more. Unfortunately, if you’re planning on taking the February LSAT, your holiday season will likely also be chock-full of studying.

Balancing LSAT studies with holiday festivities is tough. For one thing, the holidays are an infamously busy time – you probably have invitations galore to work functions, ugly sweater parties, and family get-togethers.

Save Santa in This Very Merry LSAT Logic Game

At the risk of sounding like the terrible e-card I just got from Time Warner, happy holidays from all of us here at Blueprint!

I have no idea whether you’ve been naughty or nice, but as you’ll soon learn in law school, those kind of subjective judgments are all in the eye of the beholder. So here’s a very Christmas-y LSAT Logic game either way.


This Christmas, due to the lingering effects of the recession, along with increased competition from online retailers and digital downloads, Santa Claus has been forced to cut costs to remain competitive. He has outsourced gift production to India (largely due to the high demands of the Elves Union), and has downsized his reindeer squad to 7: Blitzen, Cupid, Dasher, Komet, Prancer, Vixen, and, of course, Rudolph.

The LSAT Prep Christmas List

~All I want for Christmas is my No. 2, sharp pencil.~

Right? Something like that?

What a thing to be studying for the LSAT over the holidays. Remember when this time of year was simple? When you anxiously awaited the arrival of Santa, instead of anxiously awaited a random Sunday in February?

But you can still get in the holiday spirit, even as you stress about the February exam. Take your Christmas list, for example. Instead of asking for Tiffany & Co., you could write Santa for a, uh… more practical kind of jewelry.

The 12 Days of LSAT

With a mere 12 days until Christmas Eve, if you’re like me you’re hearing Christmas songs everywhere you go. And if you’re like me, you hate every Christmas song except for this one.

So for those of you tired of traditional Christmas songs, and in the midst of your LSAT studies, I present to you…

(Sung to the tune of “The 12 Days of Christmas”… duh.)

The first thing that stressed me out
On the L-S-A-T:

Congratulations! If you’re reading this, you’re part of the select collection of humans who survived the apocalypse. You must be the best of the best; simply the most resilient and fittest creatures on the planet. It’s time to start repopulating.

Although the dust is beginning to settle, the chaos and torment isn’t over just yet. Unfortunately, another challenging date lies ahead: February 9th. The February LSAT is just about six weeks away, and, like the mighty cockroach, LSAC survived the end of days.
