Law School Admissions Guides

These guides are no longer available - but you can check out the other law school admission guides here ------>

I want to take a break from LSAT prep to share something with you.

You see, showing the LSAT who’s boss is only one step towards getting into law school. After you get that awesome score back, you still have to actually APPLY!

And, the last thing you want to do is ruin a great LSAT score with a second-rate law school applications.

I have plenty of articles on law school admissions, but I wanted to give you something a little more comprehensive.

So, I partnered with a law school admission counselor to offer two different law school admissions guides.

The first is A Guide to Optional Essays and Addenda. My favorite section is the one titled “Which Statements are Optional, and Why?” I feel like that's at the heart of most students' questions, and the guide only goes into more detail from there.

The second is A Guide to Law School Recommendations covering important areas like  “Balancing the Pool of Recommenders” and “Educating the Educators.” I like that last one because it sounds like a campaign slogan for someone running for class president.
More importantly, it shows you all the ways that YOU can make a difference in how your recommendation letters turn out!
