Law School Admissions Guides PDF

LSAT Blog Law School Admissions Guides PDFWhile the vast majority of content here on LSAT Blog is, unsurprisingly, about the LSAT, many of you frequently ask me about the law school admissions process.

While I do offer a variety of blog posts about law school admissions, many of you are looking for more comprehensive help.

As such, I've made two different law school admission guides available for instant PDF download. One is A Guide to Optional Essays and Addenda, and the other is A Guide to Law School Recommendations.

(Here's an excerpt on character and fitness disclosures from A Guide to Optional Essays and Addenda, and here's an excerpt on choosing recommenders from A Guide to Law School Recommendations.)


Whether you've already taken the LSAT and moved on to completing your law school applications, or you're just looking to take a break from your LSAT prep and work on your applications, you can use these books from law school admissions expert Tiffany as a general guide.
