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."

Making the Most of Your Law School Recommendation Letters: The Basics

Your law school application package is critical to differentiating you from other applicants with similar LSAT scores and GPAs.  You should think conceptually about the picture you want to paint for admissions committees; while each individual application document is important, what’s more crucial is that you present a truthful, holistic, coherent and attractive portrait.



Making Your Law School Resume Shine: Summary

Our last two blog posts, “Making Your Resume Shine,” provided a lot of content.  We thought that you might want a summary  as you’re writing your resume.

As you craft your resume, you need to keep a sharp focus on what law schools want to know about you.  Our last post covered the four crucial determinations that law schools are making.  Those are the principles that should guide every part of your resume.



Making Your Law School Resume Shine:  Part One

Like any resume, your law school resume must be customized for its audience. You should keep in constant view four basic determinations that law schools are trying to make as they decide whether to extend an offer of admission or merit-based financial assistance to you: you are dedicated; you can do the intellectual work at a high level; you will bring positive interpersonal energy; and your career after law school will reflect favorably on their decision to admit you. You don’t say any of that directly in your resume but a well-constructed resume communicates these qualities clearly.



20% Increase in LSATs:  Who Wins, Who Doesn’t

One of The ABA Journal’s top 10 stories for Thanksgiving week (of all times), was the 19.8% increase in the number of September LSAT takers, to almost 61,000, up about 10,000 from the fall of 2008. That is a stunning increase, almost certainly due to the weak overall economy; for the full four-exam annual June 2008-February 2009 LSAT cycle, there were 151,000 LSAT takers, already up 6.4% from 2007-2008 (data available through membership as part of the “LSAC Volume Summary”).  A 19.8% increase for this year’s full cycle would mean that over 180,000 LSATs will be administered.
