We deliver life-changing score
increases, and we have fun doing it

Blueprint was founded by veteran instructors who believe in one simple idea: Students will learn more if they are having fun. We teach the most engaging and effective online prep courses for the LSAT and the MCAT. Our instructors and tutors are the best of the best. Our revolutionary adaptive learning platform produces the best results in test prep. We obsess over the success of our students. They trust us with their law school and med school dreams, and we deliver.

OUR MISSION

To provide students a fun learning experience, the absolute best instructors and teaching methods, and the highest score increases.

OUR VISION

To continue to be the most trusted name in test prep by helping students achieve results that lead to the career of their dreams.

OUR STORY

Blueprint was founded by experienced test prep instructors on a simple premise: Students learn better when they're having fun.

As we've grown over the years, we've never lost sight of that guiding principle. A more engaging student experience will drive better results for our students. From the use of improv at instructor training, to a gamified online platform, to pop culture references in our materials, to a video team that uses animation to bring dense material to life, Blueprint courses work because we combine powerful curriculum with a commitment to making it fun

Now, after more than 15 years in business, Blueprint is one of the largest test prep companies in the nation. Blueprint merged with Next Step Test Prep to bring our advanced technology and content delivery tools to Next Step's leading MCAT content and strategies. The combined entity has a sizeable team of instructors, tutors, and content experts, all working together to deliver entertaining and effective LSAT and MCAT prep to students across the globe.

2005

Blueprint was founded out of a condo in LA, and the first course was created over many late nights with takeout. We offered classes in five locations through CA. We convinced an early group of students to trust this new company, and they ended up having a great experience. This might just work.

2007

We hired our first employee! Blueprint also decided to venture out of CA, offering classes in NY and a few other cities. We quickly realized that our jokes about the 405 and LA traffic didn’t work in the Big Apple, but we adjusted and kept on growing.

2010

Blueprint now operates out of most major cities across the country. But this thing called the “internet” is really catching on and it seems like it might be more than just a fad. Blueprint launches our first online course, Blueprint: The Movie. Don’t go looking for old clips - they have all been destroyed.

2012

The Blueprint technology platform is revamped to transform the student experience. Software development is never easy, but we stuck with it and built great new tools for our students. We also released Blueprint: The Movie 2, which took online test prep to a new level.

2018

We partnered with New Harbor Capital and acquired Next Step Test Prep. Our goal was to create the best possible MCAT course using the things that Blueprint does best: technology, user experience, and data analytics. And figured how to add some humor into MCAT videos.

2020

Next Step is rebranded as Blueprint MCAT. We launched our new website and our new MCAT course. Students rejoice, as studying for the MCAT can now be personalized, engaging, and fun.

EXECUTIVE TEAM

Matt Riley

FOUNDER & CEO

Matt was an undergrad without a clear career path when he first thought about taking the LSAT and applying to law school. Little did he know that Logic Games would come to play such an important part in his life.

Matt co-founded Blueprint in 2005 and authored the original curriculum for our LSAT course. He personally instructed thousands of LSAT students through the years and trained all of our new instructors. Currently Matt serves as CEO of Blueprint, and he believes the success of the company is due to our relentless focus on giving our students a great experience that drives amazing results. Matt is a Bay Area native who came down to UCLA to earn his degree in Psychology. When he isn’t building a test prep empire, Matt likes to run, play basketball, and go to the beach with his daughters. He swears he hasn’t introduced them to Logic Games yet, but we aren’t sure we can believe him.

Kristen Campbell

SVP Product & Operations

Kristen only recently moved to LA. She enjoys running year round in the beautiful weather. But driving during rush hour still makes her very nervous and she has yet to attempt parallel parking. It’s a process.

After building a foundation of strategy and research analysis in the world of finance, Kristen found her passion for education. She has focused on senior leadership roles at large education companies including Kaplan, Catapult Learning, and Age of Learning. Her focus is on the fusion between product and operations, and she joined Blueprint to use her background to optimize the entire student experience. Kristen graduated from William & Mary with a degree in Public Policy and received her MBA from Harvard Business School. Recently, Kristen has taken up urban gardening and her Santa Monica balcony has already produced three tomatoes and one small yet mighty strawberry.

DANIEL KIM

CHIEF TECHNOLOGY OFFICER

Daniel spends his work hours developing cutting-edge educational technology and his weekends coaching youth soccer. Luckily, his record as a CTO is much better than the record of his soccer team.

Daniel spends his work hours developing cutting-edge educational technology and his weekends coaching youth soccer. Luckily, his record as a CTO is much better than the record of his soccer team.

Combining a passion for modern technologies and online education, Daniel has found a home architecting the learning platform at Blueprint. His team is dedicated to improving student experience and results using AI and machine learning. Daniel studied physics at UC San Diego and has built a successful software engineering career for more than 20 years. He led the engineering team at Ultra Mobile before joining Blueprint. Daniel's team is known for having to do push-ups in the middle of the office if code is deployed with any bugs, so they are also the least fit engineering team in LA.

Josh Zuckerwise

Chief Financial Officer

Josh is a true New Yorker-- he even roots for the Mets. But he has lived in Manhattan Beach for over a decade, so now his life is caught somewhere in between. He tries to teach his children about accounting, but they are more interested in surf lessons. Though he wears a Billabong t-shirt to meetings, he dresses it up with a sport coat.

Finance and accounting may sound boring to the untrained mind, but Josh brings the flair as Blueprint’s CFO. Josh has a deep understanding of accounting standards, investment banking, and the M&A process. He graduated from Tulane with a degree in Accounting and he started his career working in the capital markets audit practice of a Big Four Accounting Firm in NY. When he moved to LA, Josh served for over a decade as CFO of a financial services firm that offered investment banking, consulting, and asset management services. Josh enjoys outdoor activities, traveling with his family, and a good conversation about debits and credits.

Carolina Gutnisky

SVP Marketing

Carolina was born in New Orleans, forged a successful marketing career in Manhattan, and now lives on the beach in Santa Monica. Southern charm mixed with New York intensity and a laid back California vibe - that’s the recipe for a marketing guru.

Leading Blueprint’s marketing team taps into Carolina’s extensive background and experience in launching new products, developing strategic marketing plans, and driving growth at consumer product companies such as Unilever, Revlon, and Beachbody. Carolina received her degree in Economics and International Relations from Georgetown University and her MBA from Columbia Business School. In her spare time, she enjoys playing beach volleyball and trying valiantly to not fall off a stand-up paddle board.
