Last Days to Get 10% Off Any Class

All good things must come to an end, and Blueprint’s 10th Anniversary Sale is no different. Tomorrow (3/3) is the last day we’ll be offering 10% off any of our courses in celebration of our 10th birthday.

Over 80 students have already taken advantage of the sale, saving some bucks on the best LSAT prep classes around; if you’ve been thinking about taking the June or October LSAT, there’s never been a better time to sign up for a Blueprint course.

When Blueprint founders Trent Teti, Matt Riley and Jodi Triplett gathered in February 2005 to start a new kind of LSAT prep company, they had no idea that their dream would take the company through 36 cities, 4 offices, and enough coffee to fill the L.A. River.

Blueprint Instructor: How I Nailed My First LSAT

A few weeks ago, Blueprint LSAT instructor Branden Frankel shared his tale about the first time he took the LSAT. Branden exemplifies the laid-back, West Coast, chill approach to one’s first LSAT attempt. I, on the other hand, exhibited the uptight, Type A, super paranoid (but prepared!) approach to LSAT-taking. (Hmm, maybe I should have become a lawyer after all….)

Back in the day, I was a fresh-faced, bright-eyed pre-law student with big dreams and an even bigger stack of #2 pencils. I had taken an LSAT course with this company I’d never heard of prior to researching classes called Blueprint LSAT Prep. I had been scoring well on my practice exams and was feeling pretty confident about my odds of getting the score I wanted.
