Above the Law

"Speaking of law schools, if you're thinking of going, this is the kind of analysis you should undertake"

"I have never before formally endorsed a 'commercial' outfit. Advise-In Solutions is more than another test preparation company. It is a full-service program with the objective of helping every student enrolled in the program earn his or her best score on the LSAT, helping those students put together impressive applications to law school, and actually providing them with the chance to simulate the law school experience prior to matriculation. The biggest difference between Advise-In and other companies is its founder, Dr. Kyle Pasewark."

How Much Should You Invest in LSAT Preparation?

A lot of LSAT talk on social media and websites is about the price of LSAT prep programs.  There are two basic service-delivery models available, whether online or in person: large classroom instruction and per-hour tutoring.  (Advise-In’s single-fee structure, with no pre-set limit on consultations with me, is an exception designed to overcome what I think are significant educational shortcomings of the per-hour and classroom models.)

Law School and CareersIf you follow the legal press even casually, you’re likely to see quite different, and constantly shifting, views of the future market for lawyers.  You can regularly find optimism and pessimism in a sort of perpetual point/counterpoint.  For those in law school and those thinking about entering law school, what are you to make of all this?

Making the Most of Your Law School Recommendation Letters: More Nuts and Bolts

Law School Grade Inflation:  Why It Doesn’t Matter (and Why It Does)

Making the Most of Your Law School Recommendation Letters: A Few Nuts and Bolts

LSAT PreparationEarlier this year, I talked about the basics of letters of recommendation for law school applications.  Recommendation letters often receive the least attention from law school applicants and their advisors.  To recall why they matter to law school admissions personnel: like an applicant’s GPA and LSAT score (and unlike the personal statement), letters of recommendation are third-party validations of an applicant’s quality.  Unlike LSAT scores and GPAs, letters are personal.
