“It is easy to find a lot of misleading advice online regarding law school admissions. This book will help you avoid that advice and instead focus on what really works.”

- By Brandon S.

“What truly sets it apart is the book’s honest and down to earth advice, which comes from the knowledge and experience of its highly qualified authors. The personal and approachable tone of the book is yet another bonus. It is not at all intimidating, and provides a great balance of hard data, professional advice, personal stories, and humorous anecdotes. I would recommend this book to anyone who, like me, is beginning their law school admissions journey, and even more to anyone who finds themselves in the middles of the application cycle.”

- By Dorota Z.

“This book really opened my eyes to how many little things go into the admissions process I had never considered. Super thorough and gives the inside perspective because the authors worked in law school admissions offices at highly selective schools. Highly recommend!”
