Honestly, everything in this book could probably be found on a forum online somewhere, but I still think that this is a valuable resource. The advice in this book was incredibly helpful as I wrote my personal statement, optional essays, and tweaked my resume. I learned so much about the law school admission process, and would definitely recommend Levine's book to anyone thinking about applying to law school.

If you know some things about law school admissions, then you might not get alot from this book. If you are like me and know nothing, this just might be the book for you.

Definitely was the greatest book I picked up to prepare me for law School. I wasn't, unfortunately, able to attend law school... hopefully soon in the future, because of life forces that I had no control of. It's this whole societal reality that if you are too "overachiever" they hold you back, because they want to see if you're really that "exceptional". I didn't fit the typical law student, and I know most professional would understand this reality, so I had to be held back a couple of years t ...more

As someone at the very beginning of the law school admission process, I found this book very helpful. It provided me with valuable information and insight into aspects of the application process I had no clue about. In particular, the chapter on resumes and the personal statement were highly beneficial.

However, this book was clearly written for an American student trying to get into a Top 10 Law School, and didn't always apply to my situation. I would have liked a more international view, being

I read this book after going through the law school application process which gives me some context to place the content.

The book over all is great. However, it's clearly designed for only American Law schools and doesn't address the fact that some of this information will not apply to students in other countries, such as Canada. This could cause difficulties for readers who are unaware of the differences in application and assessment processes.

The information on resumes is fabulous. As someone

As someone currently seeking admission into law school, I've read a lot of material about the admissions process in addition to taking countless practice tests. This book provides a great insight into the admissions process from someone who was on the other end of the application process.

Levine's insight provided me with some critical direction, and as such I have reworked my application materials for law school. As a reader of her blog, as well as her twitter account (@annlevine), I was glad to

These tips all seemed straightforward and self-explanatory. "A wait list is not a rejection" - obviously, it's a wait list. "You need to take the LSAT to go to law school" - yes, thank you. Somehow I managed to figure that out on my own.

I don't necessarily think that it was a waste of my time to read, but I can't think of a single tip that stood out to me from this book that I wouldn't have already known or easily been able to figure out by googling "law school admissions timeline" or something

This book is the best book I've read so far about the law school admission process. it's very informative and as I go thru the process over the next few weeks to start reapplying I know the mistakes I made last year.
Dawn Yount
While some of the info was helpful, it was not complete enough. It was also not overly helpful for an older, non traditional student. Probably would have been a lot of help to someone fresh out of college or close to it.

Consider Anna Ivey's book. It's more comprehensive, credible and well-written. Plus Ivey is an actual admission committee member at U of Chicago.
