One Week Until LSAT Registration Deadline!

One week. We’re not talking Barenaked Ladies. Or Buster Keaton. Or even Joshua Jackson (although here at Blueprint HQ, we’re always talking Joshua Jackson… ducks fly together, yo).

No, we’re talking about the regular registration deadline for the September LSAT (the late registration deadline is September 5th, which will cost you an extra $70 smackeroos).

Balancing the LSAT and a Busy Life

A Blueprint LSAT blog reader writes: ‘It would be helpful to have some tips and guidance in balancing the course workload with full time work. It is not easy keeping up with the homework while working and attending class.’

I’ve had a few thousand other students find themselves in similar situations. It really isn’t easy to balance life and LSAT prep, but here are some tips to help you along.

Tip 1 For Busy LSAT Students: Do a bit of everything.

LSAT Logic: If You Read This, Then You’ll Be Awesome At Conditional Statments

No discussion of conditional statements would be complete without a thorough review of sufficient conditions. Luckily, and entirely coincidentally, that’s the topic of today’s post in our ongoing review of diagramming LR questions.

Simply put, the sufficient guarantees the necessary. As long as the sufficient condition is satisfied, the necessary must follow. For example:

“If you study hard, then you’ll do well on the LSAT.”
