Happy Pi Day, everyone!
As any good Family Guy fan knows, it’s a wonderful day for pie, or in today’s case, Pi. While we know that (thank God) there is no math on the LSAT, all that studying can work up a powerful hunger. And thus, it is with great pleasure that we present the following list of pies both sweet and savory to calm those Logical Reasoning-induced hunger pangs.
1. Buko Pie
Never heard of it? Can’t say I’m surprised. Buko pie is a traditional Filipino pie made with young coconut custard. Why choose this pie? Well, we all know that multicultural sensitivity is key to conquering Reading Comprehension (remember, historically marginalized cultures always win). There aren’t many better ways to work on that sensitivity than by becoming familiar with that most intimate element of foreign cultures, food.

We’ll never understand how Screech, Zack, Lisa, and Mr. Belding all decided to simultaneously pick up from Indianapolis and move to Los Angeles. I mean, we understand why, just not how. That’s a whole lot of simultaneous moving, and we assume it shattered the Indianapolis public school system while simultaneously decreasing the city’s population by 32%.
However, we do know that they found a new home at Bayside in sunny California, and the rest is history.
We watched them grow up. We watched them laugh and love. Would Kelly and Zack get married? Would Screech and Lisa ever kiss? Would Jessie end up doing soft-core porn with Kyle Maclachlan?

We had a post. It was beautifully written with substantive information and a subtle use of alliteration to reinforce important concepts. Then, Matt Riley (yes, at one point it was O’Riley) passed the Guiness around the office. We’re currently paying beer pong out of green cups, taking shots of Jameson, and listening to Galway Girl. Until tomorrow, LSAT people. Until tomorrow. Or possibly the day after, depending on hangover conditions.
The LSAT is an insanely hard test. Star Trek: The Next Generation is the greatest show of all time. So I started to think about what would happen if these two titanic worlds collided. This actually isn’t that implausible. By the 24th century, most of our standardized tests will have been rendered obsolete. Half the stuff on the MCAT will be irrelevant once we’ve got our hands on some of them sweet dermal regenerators and medical tricorders, and the GMAT will be useless upon society’s inevitable realization that business school is a scam and business students are hacks. But the logic of the LSAT is eternal. If you translated an LSAT into Greek and gave it to Socrates, he’d make it his bitch. So in a mere 350 years it will be just as efficacious as it is today, methinks.

The cancellation deadline for the June test has officially come and gone. If you took the test and didn’t pull out yet, then you’ve got a score coming your way fairly soon. It’s actually scheduled to be emailed to you two weeks from today, on Monday the 28th, but if history is any judge, it might end up coming out a week from Friday. The fact that you have to wait up to three weeks for your score seems cruel, especially considering that it’s graded on a damn scantron. I know. The time between now and then can seem like an eternity, but you can no longer fret about whether or not you should cancel. The stones have been cast and there is nothing you can do anymore.

Time for some shameless self-promotion! For all you New Yorkers thinking about taking the LSAT, Blueprint will be having a free LSAT seminar on Wednesday, hosted by myself. We’ll be discussing everything having to do with the LSAT, including scoring, strategies, timelines, and the test’s importance in the law school admissions process (spoiler: it’s important). This is also your chance to meet a real live Blueprint LSAT instructor in all of his chiseled-good-looks glory. I’ve been teaching this godforsaken test for quite some time now, so I can answer any questions you might have. As an added bonus, everyone who shows up will be eligible for some sweet, sweet LSAT course discounts.
