Catching Up With Our Recent LSAT Prep Success Stories

We love to see our students excel. When we receive a phone call or email from a student raving about a 15, 20 or sometimes even 30-point increase on their LSAT, the news makes waves around the Blueprint office.

When that person is close to our headquarters here in Los Angeles, we’ll often bring them in and use their story for advertising purposes. We call them “success stories.”

This past summer and fall, we had a handful of success stories that were especially impressive. Although all these people featured have their own ads plastered across several campuses, we thought it would make sense to run down their stories on Most Strongly Supported to let everyone see.

Believe These February LSAT Conspiracy Theories (Or Else)

After you take the February LSAT in twelve days you’ll never get to see your test again. With other LSATs you get to comb through the test, reliving all your little mistakes. But the February LSAT is non-disclosed. This can actually something of a blessing, as once the test is over, it’s over. But why should the February LSAT be the only non-disclosed test? LSAC says it’s for internal research purposes, and so that they have extra questions for LSAT-related emergencies. But what’s the real reason? What are they trying to hide? Maybe the February LSAT…

Isn’t actually an LSAT! Relatively few people take the LSAT, so they could probably get away with just throwing in an old GMAT or SAT, right?

Book Review: Busy Applicant’s Guide to Get into Law School

Another book review? You bet your ass another book review.

This time we’ve got Busy Applicant’s Guide to Get into Law School: Everything You Need in a Pocket-Sized Resource, which is available now for Kindle on Amazon. The book checks in at 133 pages and was written by former LSAT instructor Stephen Ilg and former Yale law career counselor Levi Weikel-Magden. It’s a breezy but informative read that, for anyone interested in a JD, would be an adequate next step in research after a few hours on Google.

Moreover, Get Into Law School would be an ideal read for a student who just completed his or her first year of college and was considering law school.

Time to Hunker Down if it’s Your Third LSAT in Two Years

Are you ready for a slew of clichés? Good, because here they come.

It’s crunch time.

It’s the bottom of the ninth.

It’s the last two minutes of the fourth quarter.

This one’s for all the marbles.

The whole enchilada.

Hopefully you’ve gotten the point by now. What the crap am I talking about, though?

Well, for some folks out there, this is the last LSAT they’ll be able to take for a while.
