If you want to do well on the LSAT, then you should take a course with Blueprint. If you REALLY want to do well on the LSAT, then you should take a course with Shir. If you don't live in the DC area, I would strongly suggest considering a move -the area is beautiful and you would be GUARANTEED the best teacher. Seriously, an instructor as dedicated and brilliant as Shir is hard to come by. I've had a lot of teachers and she is BY FAR one of the best. You will learn a lot, and you'll realize that when someone believes in you as vehemently as Shir does, it becomes easier to believe in yourself. So if you want to expand your brain AND your confidence (and laugh a lot) you should sign up for her class right now.
