    1. Drake Finlay on said:

      Good overview with some practical advice but the specifics it gets into are incredibly dated. Particularly in regards to the amount of debt people go into and the attitude that there is a guaranteed job at the end of the light. Also very US specific, not so helpful for a Canadian like me.

      I have an overwhelming feeling of excitement after finishing this book. The foreword from Prof. Sullivan is very telling. Undoubtedly, Prof. Estrich is very good at teaching and inspiring people. I never sensed any bias in this book, despite the very fact that she graduated from and teaches at amazing schools. I recommend this book for anyone thinking of applying to law school, individuals preparing for the LSAT, people preparing to apply to law school (like me), and new attorneys. The book is f [...]

      An insider’s guide written by the first woman president of the Harvard Law Review and current law professor at USC, this book is a great resource for any perspective student. I’m currently weighing the pros and cons of grad school vs. law, so my lawyer brother sent me this book to help in the decision. It didn’t really help me decide, but it did give me a lot to think about. LSATs, what school, where, and how to get in are all covered with humor and depth. She includes helpful hints on wh [...]

      "How to Get into Law School" is perfect for anyone in law school, applying to law school, or thinking about maybe applying to law school. As indicated, I first read this book three years ago, and at that time I was thinking about maybe applying to law school. "How to Get into Law School" not only convinced me that law school was the right decision for me, but it also provided a road map. By carefully following the advice in this book over the course of a few years, I am pleased to report that I [...]

      -LSAT courses and intense preparation for LSATs -memorable personal statement of overcoming great life odds-you can finagle your way into getting an interview at all law schools even if interviews aren't their policy-try to get personally acquainted with the dean-briefing cases obsessively while in law school is mostly a waste of time and doesn't really prepare you for examsa few top law firms:Holland and KnightFoley and LardnerKirkland and Ellis"the absolute best job you can possibly get coming [...]

    6. Mary on said:

      Two key points about this book: first, Susan Estrich is an incredibly annoying and abrasive woman. Her constant name-dropping is paired with an antagonistic and condescending attitude towards her readers that I found extremely off-putting. Secondly, this book is really only useful to prospective law students who have their hearts set on a "reach" school they can't get into based on their LSAT and GPA. Some "secret" tactics include being nice to the receptionists and trying to score a phone call [...]

      I think this book offers valuable insight from a woman's perspective on law school. It's particularly engaging because she writes in everyday vernacular, and although this was published in 2004, the book seems to reflect the experiences of today's law students or aspiring law students. Estrich was the first woman editor-in-chief of Harvard Law Review, first woman professor tenured at Harvard Law, and first woman to run a presidential campaign (Michael Dukakis' unsuccessful 1988 run).

    8. Billjustbill on said:

      Sure seemed like great advice, but (because of this book and others AND talking to working attorneys) I decided NOT to go to law school. But if you're trying to get in, this was really one of the (if not THE) best summary of what you need to do.

    9. Desiree on said:

      This was very informative about the law school admissions process. There's a also a part 2 which gives some information about law school life.

    10. Anna on said:

      Valuable and honest insight into law school from an admissions officer's perspective.

    11. Brendan Hall on said:

      Helpful book with some pointers for the law school application process. I would recommend to anyone considering applying to law school.

    12. Kate on said:

      Great advice and inside look to the processcially after undergraduate graduation.
