    If you are looking for real, practical guidance on how to apply

    If you are looking for real, practical guidance on how to apply to law school, you should buy this book.
    I needed advice from a law student who could identify with my profile. But, I had nowhere to turn until I
    came across this book. I am a none-traditional student who has been out of school and working for a few
    years. This book spoke to me and explained everything. It talks about what a law school admissions committee
    needs to see in a person like me, about how to get good grades, and it even talks about transferring
    law schools after your first year. I didn’t know that was possible. The bottom line is this is a great book
    if you are applying to law school. It is written in simple language and will answer all your questions.
    So check it out. I think you’ll find it useful—I did! (T. Mitchell)

    I wish I had this book when I went to law school!  While the author is clearly a pro-law school person (much more so than most), the book contains an enormous amount of useful and practical advice.  A great resource for those thinking of law school.
