Publisher's Summary

Learn everything you need to know to get into law school. This re-written and completely updated version of the bestselling law school admission guide, first published in 2009, provides detailed information on how to present yourself in the law school application process. Ann Levine brings more than a decade of experience in law school admissions, as director of admissions for law schools and as a law school admission consultant, to provide advice about writing the best law school personal statements, how to choose people to write letters of recommendation, what to include in your resume, how to explain weaknesses in your application such as a low GPA or LSAT score, the best way to prepare for the LSAT, and how to choose a law school.

Once you've submitted your law school applications, this book will continue to guide you on getting accepted from a waiting list, negotiating law school scholarships, and transferring to a new law school after your 1L year.

The book includes sample resumes with annotations, an analysis of personal statement introductions, tips on writing optional essays for law schools, and sample addenda. Even if you are a non-traditional applicant, an international student, or if you have learning disabilities, you will find tips specific to your situation.

A must listen for aspiring law students

One of the very first things I did when I first began studying for the LSAT was to read and listen to Ann Levine's books. It was a wonderful first step that helped contextualize and make clear the rest of the path ahead of me. I didn't hire Ann Levine, or anyone, as an admissions coach but having approached law school admissions from the Ann Levine admissions philosophy as outlined in her books I feel like she was my admissions coach and owe her a great deal of gratitude. I'd highly recommend her books for anyone at all considering law school.

Don't start your application without reading this book

This book was very helpful. I am glad I read this before preparing my application because I was planning to do some of the very things she said NOT to do. Wish I had this during undergrad but I definitely see the value of the book no matter what stage of the application process you are in.

Useful Advice

Overall, I found this audio book useful, insightful. I've heard or read some of the points made here before, but the advices given in regards to the admission process and the outline of what one needs to do during the various application stages was most enlightening.
