This book is so narrowly focused on the big law path that it leaves anyone desiring to pursue any other legal career paths out in the cold. All of the student authors are from T14 or east coast, old money schools and the preponderance of any chapter is dedicated to advice aimed at securing fast lane, mega-corporate legal careers. As a law student interested in prosecutorial work, this was a great turn off. The overall tone of the book is just ultimately very discouraged, as if the authors are su ...more

Really a great guide. Miller gives excellent tips and pointers not just for admissions and the like, but also how to survive in law school.

I am going to re-read this, especially the later chapters, the closer I get to my law school career.
