Blueprint: The Movie 2.0 is entirely taught by Blueprint founders Matt Riley and Trent Teti.
Between them they've sent enough students to law school to fill a medium-sized stadium.
Trent Teti scored a 174 on the LSAT, was accepted to law schools across the country including Berkeley and the University of Chicago, and is currently a doctoral candidate at UCLA in Philosophy. He brings his knowledge of logic and analytical reasoning to the Blueprint course.
Matt Riley scored a 179 on his own LSAT and was accepted to Harvard Law School, which he turned down to found Blueprint. Matt has never missed a single question on any logic games section and brings his love of games and mastery of the test to the Blueprint course.
The man, the myth, the monster. Trent Teti is one of the best known and most highly regarded LSAT instructors in the world.
Trent holds a BA from UC Berkeley (Philosophy) and is currently finishing a Ph.D. at UCLA (Philosophy). In addition to scoring a 174 on the LSAT, Trent has taught courses in logic and all areas of Philosophy. He has received numerous teaching awards and fellowships, and is a former nationally ranked debater.
Trent has been teaching the LSAT for nearly a decade. What for him is a painfully long time is for you a wealth of LSAT knowledge. Using his vast teaching experience and ignorance of how much work it would be, Trent founded Blueprint in 2005.
Raw, uncut and brash, his class is more entertaining than any other educational experience you've had. It’s not just a class; it's an event. And you don't have to live in LA to experience the hype. Trent brings his acerbic wit and teaching prowess to the big screen in Blueprint: The Movie. The Blueprint video course allows students to study with the authors of the Blueprint curriculum from home. Or the wide open plains of the Mongolian Steppe, as long as Ulaanbaatar has a strong wireless connection.
Trent rides a VFR800, principally because he is unable to parallel park or use windshield wipers.
Frequently spotted on a beach cruiser near the southern California shore, Matthew Riley is a Bay Area native who earned his BA in Psychology from UCLA, and like so many Bachelors of the Arts, went on to not use his degree at all.
A former student of Trent's, Matt received a near perfect score of 179 (99.9%) the first time that he took the LSAT. In 2005, he joined his old instructor as a business partner and brought his extensive knowledge of the LSAT to Blueprint. Over the course of his now seven-year teaching career, Matt has instructed thousands of students and scored 176 or higher on the LSAT four times (but who's counting?). He recently scored a 178 on the September 2009 exam, but a certain question regarding mathematical proofs kept him from a perfect 180 and the first step on the path to the Guinness Book of World Records.
Matt creates an engaging classroom setting by combining humor with a deep understanding of the test. Informative and entertaining, his classes provide a lighthearted atmosphere in which students excel. He brings that same mix of humor and logic skillz to our online LSAT course, Blueprint: The Movie. The video course has helped students from weird locations around the globe, like Canada, and is available anywhere the Internets cast their webs.
Matt is an avid snowboarder and he is convinced that knowledge of ''Saved by the Bell'' trivia is a mark of intellectual distinction.
