Blueprint Ad on TLS

Postby splittinghairs » Sat May 14, 2011 1:01 pm

Anyone else find the blueprint advertisement funny?

What do these students have in common?
Each took blueprint and got into Harvard Law

If that's not a correlation-causation fallacy then I don't know what is. Sorta worrying that a LSAT test prep commits the same fallacy they are supposed to teach us against.

Maybe they're just ingenious, because by using this ad they will be sure to only attract students who fall for crappy logic, thereby they can easily increase these students scores and claim that "the average blueprint student increases by 10 points."

Only if they aren't aware of the fact that they were lying through their teeth

Wait wait wait OP. You are inventing that claim out of thin air. All the blueprint people are doing is presenting some facts. It isn't their fault that some people come to crazy conclusions.

I agree with OP, not to mention how ridiculous these mugshot-like pics are all over campuses, they always made me laugh lol

Meh. The ads with Blueprint Godzilla and the LSAT as paint-by-numbers were pretty amusing.
