    Fantastic reference for a daunting task!!!!

    This book is a must-have for students serious about getting into law school. There are explicit instructions for what you should do and what to absolutely avoid. Ann's information is concise without being harsh. You should not even think about seriously applyling to law school until you have read this book cover to cover. DO NOT GO THROUGH THE PROCESS WITHOUT THIS BOOK AS A REFERENCE GUIDE.

    Bravely writes where others won't!

    Are you anxious about applying to law school? Do you feel overwhelmed by information, or maybe not informed enough? Are you worried about an aspect of your application, your career or your personal history? This is the book for you (and for you to pass along to friends). Ann Levine addresses uncommon and common issues straightforwardly and honestly. After reading this book, you will not only be able to identify your strengths and weaknesses but also be able to manage them (most books simply point them out). I feel that Ann's experience working with very diverse applicants provides her an insight and authority that few others can provide. Don't even begin to think about your schools list without having read this book (and her blog is great too).

    The One Book All Law School Applicants Should Have

    This book is an amazing resource for law school applicants. It covers all aspects of the admissions process, including deciding if you even want to apply to law school. It then covers all parts of the application, including LSAT and GPA, Letters of Recommendation, Personal Statement, disclosure statements, scholarships, and making the most of your offers. This book has the most comprehensive and authoritative discussion on how to handle low LSAT scores, including retaking the test or score cancellations, information I have not found in any other resource. It also gives a definitive explanation of Letters of Recommendation and how admissions offices use them in evaluating applications. In the discussion of personal statements, there is frank talk about topics. It is broad enough to apply to almost any applicant, but detailed enough to be useful.

    I also enjoyed that Author Ann Levine includes information on how to get into a top 14 school, a midrange school, or a regional or Tier 4 school. All are discussed with their relative merits, and information is included specific to tailoring your application for each. Also, there is straightforward information about student debt and transfer opportunities, as well as student satisfaction.

    Additionally, this book is very readable. The language moves quickly and personal. It is easy to read, and does not get drag, even when discussing such usually dry topics as different kinds of letters of recommendation or dates in the rolling admissions process. Also, the tone is realistic, pragmatic and grounded, but at the same time always positive and encouraging. There are no rose colored glasses, but the belief that hard work and honesty will go a long way.

    If I were to have one book on the admissions process, this would be it. After having completed the process, I found this an invaluable guide.

    Highly recommended for:
    College students in the application process.
    Professionals in the application process.
    College students thinking about after graduation plans.
    Parents/loved ones of those applying to law school.

    Also useful for:
    High school students considering law.

    Navigate the Law School Admission Process Successfully!

    I have read Ann Levine's book The Law School Admission Game: Play Like An Expert 3 times now and each time I read it, I am more impressed, I feel more informed and more empowered. Ann takes the mystery out of the law school admission process and makes it clear how one can put their best foot forward in this extraordinarily competitive arena.

    In a very succinct and lucid manner, Ann Levine clearly shows students how to identify whether or not law school is the right choice for them. She then helps them navigate the process by identifying strengths, addressing weaknesses and overcoming obstacles. As someone who has very clear strengths and weaknesses, Ann's advice has helped me highlight the peaks of my academic and professional careers while forthrightly and effectively addressing my weaknesses for maximum success in the law school admission process.

    Ann's book goes into great detail on everything from recommendations to the personal statement to LSAT scores. And, she does this in an easy to read, friendly manner. At no point will the reader feel that Ann is passing judgment or that she is discouraging one from applying to law school. Ann Levine gives every student the confidence they will need to face the challenging process of law school admissions and to find the school that is right for them.

    Whether you are applying to Georgetown or Golden Gate, Minnesota or Miami or any school in between, I emphatically endorse Ann Levine's book. Any person even considering law school must read this - there is no substitute.
