"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."

Good calendar and time management are essential skills for practicing lawyers. And like many of those skills, preparing to apply to law school is a fine time to work on them. This means maximizing your law school prep calendar­—deciding when to start preparing, how much time to give yourself, and knowing what your strengths and obstacles might be.

Zeroing In on Your Résumé: Lessons from the Internet Age, Part I

As I’ve discussed in numerous posts on this blog, getting into law school isn’t only about LSAT scores. I don’t care what LSAT prep companies, who have a vested interest in making the LSAT all-important, say. The LSAT is important, yes, but I know a lot of people who haven’t had “top 14 scores” (according to internet blather) who are now sitting in top 20 law schools, most with merit scholarships to boot. Still, the number of people who call me to say that they “need” a 170 is astonishing (and of course the “need” may make the score less likely, since these people are putting undue pressure on themselves).

Early Surveys Are In: Did the Fall 2013 Admissions Cycle See Another Drop in Applicants (and Should the Data Change the Timing of Your Application)?

Earlier this year, I noted an increase in law schools who were open to considering June 2013 LSAT scores for admission to the Fall 2013 term. The NLJ ran an article on the trend (for which yours truly was also interviewed) that speculated it was just “one more sign of the struggle many law schools now face in recruiting enough students to render their operations financially sustainable.” The full article is available here. The trend was noteworthy because in previous years, a June 2013 test score would likely only be considered in the following year’s admissions cycle, or in some cases, if it was a retest by an applicant seeking to improve their score, merely added to sweeten an existing Fall applicant’s file. The February LSAT administration was typically your last chance if you wanted to submit a score for admission to the fall term of that year.

An Extra $3,600 per Year:  Many Law School Borrowers Will Need to Find It Right out of Law School

Last week’s deal to increase the national debt ceiling (i.e., Congress deciding that it was still willing to pay debts it had itself incurred) involved some heavy costs for beneficiaries of many government programs.

The ABA Approves New Law School Employment Data Reporting (and it Should be Helpful to Law School Applicants)

Sometimes, crow is just delicious.  In the past, I’ve been extremely critical of the pretty miserable law school employment data that the ABA requires law schools to report, as well as the seemingly glacial pace of the ABA process in compelling law schools to report data that would actually be useful to law school applicants and not subject to easy manipulation by law schools.

Is “Fraud” Too Strong a Term for What Some Law Schools Say?:  Not According to One Law Professor

“My salary is paid by the current structure, which is in many ways deceptive and unjust to a point that verges on fraud.  But as a law professor, I understand that what is good for me is that the structure stay the way it is.”

Donating LSAT Preparation and Law School Admission Advising: Advise-In’s Annual Pro Bono Program

Beginning this Thursday, July 7, I’ll conduct—for the 14th consecutive year—a week-long LSAT preparation and law school admission and application workshop at the foot of the Wasatch Mountains in Utah. As in the past, I’ll be donating my services (students pay a little to cover travel and other expenses; there's sometimes a little left over, which goes to non-profits).
