Caption Contest II: Win $100 Off Our Online LSAT Prep Course

Take a good look at the photo above. It could earn you a $100 discount off Blueprint LSAT Prep’s online course.

After the success of the LSAT blog’s first caption contest, we’re doin’ it again. Comment on this post with a caption for the photo, and the funniest one that has something to do with the LSAT or law school (to be picked by Blueprint LSAT Prep principals) will win the $100 discount. The discount must be applied to a summer online LSAT prep course. If you already paid for a Blueprint LSAT Prep online course for the summer or you’d prefer a different prize, you may choose a Starbucks giftcard as an alternative.

Winners will be announced next Monday, May 6, right here on the LSAT blog.

Make Quantified Logic on the LSAT Easier By Simplifying It

During Blueprint LSAT Prep courses, few subjects are more vexing for students than quantified logic. Shoot, it even sounds scary.

But it doesn’t have to be.

On every LSAT, there are a handful of Logical Reasoning questions that test a student’s ability to combine all, most, some, and no statements. The problem is that there are a number of combinations that the LSAT can throw in your direction, and memorizing all of these combinations is reminiscent of calculus class (also know as the reason you are going to law school in the first place).

Good news: When broken down, there are really only two principles that define the valid and invalid conclusions that can be drawn from quantified statements.

Don’t Freak Out About Your First LSAT Practice Exam Score

Most Blueprint LSAT Prep live courses for the spring started on Sunday. This is big time super fun news for our students as they embark on their journey to a big time super fun June LSAT score. But as far as journeys go, this can be a rather traumatic one. If you’ve never taken an LSAT before, it’s a punishingly difficult test that’s incredibly long and tiring to boot. As you take it for the first time, you generally have no idea what the hell’s going on as you frantically bubble in those 125 multiple choice answers. When it’s finally over you stumble home in a daze, grade your LSAT practice exam, then get your LSAT score.

At this point, most people panic. Feelings of dread and uncertainty fill you when you see that your LSAT score is lower than you’d like. Like, way lower. Like, “Jesus Christ, oh, Jesus Christ” lower than you’d like.

Win a Free Copy of The Blueprint for LSAT Logic Games

Not sure if you heard the news, but Blueprint LSAT Prep recently released our own LSAT book called The Blueprint for LSAT Logic Games. No big deal or anything, but it’s expected to completely revolutionize the way people study for LSAT Logic Games. Again, NBD.

If you’d like to be in on the action, you’re in luck. We’re giving away five free copies of The Blueprint for LSAT Logic Games.

You can read more about The Blueprint for LSAT Logic Games here, but the LSAT book essentially condenses the LSAT Logic Games portion of a Blueprint LSAT Prep course into 561 pages and uses our signature insight and wit to break down 35 real LSAT Logic Games released by Law Services.

Here are the Winners in Blueprint LSAT Prep’s Video Contest

Last week, Blueprint LSAT Prep’s video contest for 2013 came to an end. We finished with nine submissions, each of which was a winner in its own right. Some videos followed the contest guidelines. Some of them didn’t. All of them made us smile, at least.

To catch you up to speed, we asked future LSAT test-takers to submit a 30-second public service announcement (PSA) on the dangers of self-studying for the LSAT — a la “This is your brain on drugs.” What are the life-changing effects of self-studying for the LSAT? Why should you study with Blueprint LSAT Prep instead of on your own? Why should you just say no to going at LSAT prep alone? You get the idea.

Without further ado, here are the top three videos we received:
