Great book! - 3 of 3 people found the following review helpful.Great book! By brooklaw11 This book was very easy to read and I breezed right through it. Unlike many other books, Ian Scott tells it how it is by taking you through a step-by-step process and by getting rid of all myths and preconceived notions of what law school actually means. Anyone who is applying to law school, thinking about applying to law school, or even currently attending law school must have a copy of this book.
Don't apply to law school without it! - 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful.Don't apply to law school without it! By C. Sly While planting my first step toward law school, I was fortunate enough to come across this book--and I love it! I have been out of school and in the workforce for a few years so the prospect of navigating law school applications brought some degree of trepidation. I did not know what to expect. From the first bright page, the text spoke to me. It anticipated my every question and answered them with an insight the author's unique law school experience brings. It is a pleasurable read, which makes it easy to grasp the many excellent tips in selecting law schools that I would not have considered. You'll love the author's personal statement for law school. It complements the other examples he provides. What makes this book the must read for applicants like me is how the author dissects the anatomy of a personal statement to flush out what will attract the admissions committee. And for me, that is the bottom-line. In comparing this book to other referrals, though they may become part of my library, this book is my faithful guide to applying to law school.
Useful Book - 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful.Useful Book By E. Clinton The book is a useful guide for law students and it contains a great deal of valuable information on how to put together the application and how to approach your law school studies.The author is a cheerleader for law schools and he urges people to attend. You can't blame him. He attended Harvard Law School and obviously had a positive experience. He does warn students that (a) there was negative press about law schools and their employment statistics recently and (b) that it can be tough to get a good job if you go to a low-ranked law school. Indeed, he urges students to work hard and graduate in the top third of the class. I can't disagree with his view on this issue. I would urge students to think about what you want to do with the law degree before you go to law school.The advice on the application is particularly good. I also agree with the author's approach - he urges students to work hard and try to get ahead in law school. He has good pointers for success in large firms and success as a summer associate.This is probably the most useful book in this area. For a view that is probably too negative, you can consider "Don't Go To Law School Unless" by Paul Campos.Scott's book is a quality effort with solid advice for the prospective lawyer.The book is worth reading, especially if you dread the application process. There are helpful tips for every applicant.
