Getting Prepared for the Digital LSAT

Let’s say you have some plans to take the LSAT this year. Perhaps they’re not, technically speaking, plans, more a nebulous and ill-defined notion that you should take the LSAT this year. You missed the January exam already, and the March exam is, frankly, coming way too fast to get adequately prepared. You’re considering taking the June 3rd exam, but that’s close to finals and a million other obligations, so you’re not sure that’s the best time to take the test.

Today’s Your Last Chance to Sign Up for the March LSAT

February is one of my least favorite months of the year. The weather is dreary, the holiday hangover is still in effect, and no good movies are coming out (not to mention the commercialized bastardization of love that is Valentines day, but I digress). Some of you may find February distasteful for another reason — the looming specter of the March 2019 LSAT exam.

Should You Take the LSAT Before July 2019? 3 Questions to Consider.

Summer LSAT season is funny. On the one hand, you spend nine months or so out the year waiting for the sweet release of summer, only to be reminded that as the weather heats up, so must your LSAT prep. Then there’s the agony of waiting for your score which will determine if you spend the rest of your summer studying for a Fall LSAT. On the other hand, if you do well, you can celebrate your victory over several weeks before school starts again.

Will the Digital LSAT Change Law School Admissions?

To put it politely, the legal industry is not exactly known for its rapid adaptation to change. In light of that fact, with the recent changes to the LSAT — the shift to a digital format and the addition of twice as many testing dates per year — there are seismic shifts happening in the prelaw world this year.

A New Day in LSAT: A New Test Calls for a New Online LSAT Course & Updated LSAT Prep

2019 is a year of change in the world of LSAT, not the least of which is the move to a tablet-based test and a take-home Writing Sample. Law school applications are also on the rise and the GRE is still trying to be “a thing.” Elsewhere, people are busier than ever and sacrificing quality for the sake of flexibility is becoming the norm.

At Blueprint, we’re at the forefront of the LSAT and the law school admissions process as a whole. Our online platform has been setting standards for online LSAT prep for years and our methodologies have been helping students average 11-point score increases. Still, we heard our students’ need for more modern, affordable, and flexible LSAT prep. The LSAT is changing, so we are too. Introducing: The new Blueprint Online Anytime Course.

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.

Changes to the LSAT Writing Sample, Coming in June

Ever since LSAC announced that it would switch-up the format of the LSAT from the staid, old, traditional pencil-and-paper exam to the gleaming, new digital LSAT, we’ve been covering — quite extensively, I’d say — the changes coming in 2019. But we haven’t yet given proper due to the changes coming for the writing sample, which will debut in June 2019.

You Can Now Test Out the Digital LSAT

When LSAC announced that the LSAT would switch to a digital format in July of 2019, we knew big changes were coming to this test. But some of us may have underestimated how significant these changes would feel. Well, OK, I’ll be honest and use “I” statements and say that I may have underestimated how significant these changes would feel.

All the LSAT News from 2018

We are certainly in the final moments of 2018 — if this year were an LSAT, we are solidly in the Writing Sample portion of the exam, which means we’re mostly just phoning it in and thinking about how hard we’re going to party tonight. But before we close the metaphorical test booklet of the year that was two thousand and eighteen, let’s get contemplative. Believe it or not, this LSAT blog has some stuff to say about the LSAT.

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.
