Testmasters LSAT workshop– and DISCOUNTS!

When: Wednesday, March 9th
Time: 6-7:30
Where: 115 Barrows

This event is open to everybody!

Those attending will have a chance to answer one difficult LSAT logical reasoning question. Each student who answers his/her question correctly will receive a voucher for half off the Testmasters tuition ($725).

Even if you don’t answer it correctly, you will still receive $100 off a Testmasters course just for being a BLSA member (however, you cannot combine the discounts).

During the workshop, the instructor will discuss the LSAT: how it relates to the admissions process, the scale used to score the test, percentile conversions, etc. We will be talking about how and when to start preparing.

We will also be teaching several LSAT logical reasoning questions as well as a logic game. Only real LSAT questions will be used, so you can be sure they are close to the real thing.

Please RSVP at blsalaw@gmail.com or else the event may be rescheduled!
