This course was incredible and due to the wonderful instruction of Kevin Lin, helped me achieve admission to a top 10 law school. The course improved my LSAT score by more than 10 points and Kevin is extremely thorough in both his instruction and knowledge of the material. The difficulty for me with this test was the reading section and Kevin helped me specifically target my weaknesses and find consistent patterns in my incorrect answers. Over time, with practice from the homework assignments and excellent mentorship by Kevin, I was able to reduce my mistakes in that particular section and achieve a score that I was satisfied with. I could not have achieved my LSAT goals without this course and Kevin's instruction, and I would recommend Blueprint to anyone looking for a boost in their LSAT study plan. With 5 practice exams and countless practice assignments, there is plenty of practice material to improve as long as you put in the time and work. Will take a couple of months to see significant results, so be patient and focus on following a good practice process which Kevin will guide you towards.

I'm really happy about my experience with Blueprint (12 point improvement! Really!) and I would recommend taking an in-person course, especially with Kevin Lin. I've tried to study for the LSAT by myself before, but it was difficult to dedicate the time with a demanding full-time job. Blueprint materials are streamlined and engaging. Their strategies work without overcomplicating things. However, I just cannot emphasize enough what an incredible instructor Kevin Lin is. I really think his classroom instruction (and follow up emails!) were the most important part of making the score improvement. I think Kevin has such exhaustive knowledge of the LSAT that he's able to provide deeper explanations and answer individual questions with an absolute and rapid fluency that goes beyond course materials or curriculum. Kevin kept the classroom lively with a good sense of humor but he was actually brilliant at managing classroom participation to ensure everyone was engaged. I'm also thankful for his personalized advice along the way and for his genuine encouragement!

Julien Hawthorne wants you to do well on the LSAT. Here's the thing with Blueprint. It focuses ONLY on the LSAT, so the company already devotes a lot of attention and resources for LSAT preparation. But what Julien does is prepare you with an aptitude to know what's on the test, knowing all the concepts and strategies, but also psychologically getting you ready. From the first to the very last lesson, Julien teaches the material in an engaging and light-hearted manner. He breaks down the concepts that are understandable, goes the extra mile to help you by providing tips, coaching, and what not. He is also frank and honest, by setting realistic expectations and goals. Through his mentorship, I received a dramatic boost (Dec '15) from the first time (when I didn't go to Blueprint) I took the actual test.

I took the class on Long Island, and I learned a lot from it. The classes can be long (4 hours!), but very informative. The instructor was helpful and thorough in explaining the concepts; the books and online videos were also very descriptive and in depth for the questions and prep tests. Lots of online resources too, which is good for review and extra practice. The people were all nice to deal with and willing to help with any problems. Would definitely recommend Blueprint LSAT to anyone thinking of taking the LSAT. The in-person course is my personal ideal, but the online course is also fantastic.

If you are looking to increase your LSAT score, I encourage you to take this course. There is a lot of work involved, ie homework, practice exams, however, if you are willing to follow the curriculum you are guaranteed a score increase. I took my initial LSAT and received a 140, by the last practice test I was receiving scores in the 160 range. If you live near New York City, I recommend you take Brett Donaldson's class. He shows compassion for his students and he knows the ins and outs of the test, adding comicality and amusement to the boring and overwhelming test structure.

I took the class with Kevin Lin and he was the best! My score increased 15 points as a result of taking this class. I took the lsat today and I think I did ok. The classes were essential for someone like me, who learns by interacting and by asking questions. Definitely worth it.
