Must read for anyone applying to law school
This book has made the law school application process much more manageable! Coming from a large university, I did not have access to prelaw advisors/counselors; however, with this book, I feel like I did. Peg does an excellent job of breaking down the application process and helping them plan for the entire application cycle. Not only is this book easy to read, but the book also includes invaluable planning charts and worksheets. I would highly recommend this book to anyone even thinking about applying to law school!
Fantastic guide to managing the law school admissions process
The No B.S. Guide to the Law School Application Timeline helps you break the daunting task of applying to law school into manageable steps. Peg's understanding of the admissions process shines through as she explains all the different hoops you'll need to jump through to build a successful law school application.
This detailed guide includes both a short one-page checklist of the application timeline -- ideal to print, post, and cross off as you complete each task -- and a longer, more detailed explanation of each application task and what it will take to complete them. This information can help you get a good idea of exactly what it will take to apply to law school, and how you can accomplish all these tasks successfully. It also includes realistic advice about pitfalls you may need to address as you go through the application process, such as which LSAT to take if you are not a morning person and why to ask recommenders to deliver their letters of recommendation early.
In addition, Peg gives comprehensive advice for building a schedule you can use to get all your different tasks done not just on time, or by the final application deadline, but by the ideal date for you. This is particularly useful if you are not used to plotting out large, multi-stage projects months in advance. And make no mistake -- the law school application is certainly a large, multi-stage project that will take months to accomplish!
Overall, this handbook provides an excellent set of guidelines you can use to successfully manage your law school application process. Highly recommended.
The Law School Application Timeline
The level of detail in this guide is unbelievable, which is why I believe that if the steps are followed almost exactly, it will be a win-win situation for the applicant and the law school. My question is, with more and more folks doing all the right things at the right time, will the bars be raised for acceptance into law schools?
After my journey towards acceptance ends, I am going to revisit here for followup comments. Believe me, if I can get accepted, using this guide, you can too!
