If you want to know what life is really like at the country's leading law schools, then listen to the students that attend them. This book contains the results of the largest annual law student survey. More than 11,000 students told us what they think, and we've included their comments here in the most comprehensive and definitive guide ever produced.
The school you choose determines how you'll spend the next three years of your life and greatly influences how well you will do in the job market when you graduate. The updated 1998 edition of The Best Law Schools advises you of the attributes and possible drawbacks of the 194 top schools; it also provides all the practical information you need to apply.

Most of the information is verbatim but the information on demographics is what helped me to decide what schools I will apply to.
This book takes the same approach as other Princeton Review college guides in that it focuses on the schools from the student perspectives. It does contain much useful statistical information too, as well as some interesting (and often very critical) insights into the whole Law school admissions process. My biggest reservation with this guide is that, due to the fact that the Princeton Review books are so widely read and have almost become the authority on what schools 'are *really* like', student comments that are published almost become self perpetuating, and lead to certain schools being stereotyped.
Good book to have b/c it seems to be the only one that actually includes a discussion on each law school. In some instances however, the discussions are too brief and/or lack relevant information. Also, the book seems to cite 'Not enough courses' for practically every law school, thus making the discussion on the 'Pros and Cons' virtually useless for this and other reasons. More importantly much of the information in the book is out of date and continues to cite information that is no longer relevant. The book is useful b/c it is the only I have found that contains any discussion on each law school, however there is much to be improved in it. Also dissapointing is the fact that the discussions found here are verbatim copies of the discussions found on the Princeton Review web site and add nothing new beyond what is already free information
This book is thorough in examining all law schools in the U.S. It give information about cost, admissions, LSAT, ratings of all law schools, etc. I would recommend it to anyone who is searching for the 'right' law school!
