The LSAT Is Officially Going Digital Next Spring

The LSAT is indeed going electronic, or at least so says LSAC’s president. Maybe Big Pencil needs to spend more money on lobbying. Anyway, the shift is supposed to happen this coming spring. Supposedly, for a few months, you’ll get to choose whether you’d like to take the test electronically or on paper. But after that, it’ll be electronic from then on out.

Don’t Miss Out on Our Two LSAT Webinars Tomorrow!

Before we could harness the power of the internet to bring LSAT content directly to you, the industrious future attorney, some of the older LSAT knowers at Blueprint had to pile into a used Ford Econoline and hit the road, trekking all across this nation, dropping kernels of LSAT knowledge wherever we could. Like some weird, legal-themed Johnny Appleseeds. By the time we would reach the east coast, the van’s brakes would be shot, along with our patience for each other and our tolerance for a diet of gas station gastronomy.

RSVP to Next Tuesday’s LSAT and Logic Games Webinars!

Back to school season is in full swing, and next week, Blueprint is taking you to class. That’s right — we’re hosting two free webinars, so you’ll be able to learn more about the LSAT as a whole or the Logic Games section specifically, from the comfort of your own home! Or the library… or work… or your friendly neighborhood coffee shop… you get the idea. Pants are optional (unless you’re in one of the latter places).

Don’t Be Late to Our Early Bird Sale! It Ends Today!

In a way, there are two types of students who approach the LSAT: the early bird and the late comer. They may have the same goal in mind, but the early bird shows up on exam day refreshed, with plenty of time before the check in cut-off time. The late comer is the one that leaves their coffee on the roof of their car because they left for the exam without a minute to spare with a near-empty gas tank. The early bird will send out their law school applications in the fall in order to give themselves the best chance at admission, while the late comer will delay ’til the spring and then send out a haphazard essay to the wrong school.

Bad Analogies Are a Lot Like Questions About Dinosaurs

If you were training to run a race, it wouldn’t be a good idea to work out like crazy one day a week and loaf the rest. Studying for the LSAT, like training for a race, involves building up skills over time. So you shouldn’t cram your LSAT studying on the weekends but instead spread it out over time.

There, I just made an analogy.

Our Early Bird Sale is Going Strong!

This year, LSAC switched up the schedule of LSATs, moving up the last LSAT of the calendar year from December to November. There are a ton of reasons to celebrate this change. For instance, this change will allow test takers to apply earlier in the application cycle than the December test takers could, which could help with their admissions chances. Plus, November test takers will be able to enjoy the winter holidays without the score release still looming, distracting them from optimal holiday merrymaking — a perk not enjoyed by the December test takers.

July 2018 Post-LSAT Carnival

The post-LSAT carnival is back to bring you the best of the internet chatter on the July 2018 LSAT. I dove deep into the discussion forums to round up the very best and most significant highlights on this LSAT. Buckle up, because this one is a roller coaster.

A Painless Approach to Parallel Questions

Parallel questions are among the most hated question types on the Logical Reasoning section of the LSAT, and for good reason — each question contains a total of six separate arguments (the original argument in the stimulus, and one argument in each of the answer choices), which means that all together, this question type can be a huge time-waster.

The Morning Cometh: The July 2018 LSAT Recap

July LSAT takers: where were you on February 8, 2014? Maybe this was a simpler, pre-LSAT time in your life, and you were trying to figure out the newfangled “Stories” feature on Snapchat, while listening to Katy Perry and Juicy J’s “Dark Horse,” on your way to see the surprisingly good The Lego Movie, after watching the opening ceremonies to the twenty-second Winter Olympics games in Sochi? If, on the other hand, you were taking the February 2014 LSAT, some may say you had an advantage over your social media-using, trap-pop-listening, Scandinavian toy-movie-watching, winter-sport-viewing counterparts.
