Law School Applications / Re: Any good resume websites?

Go to a used bookstore.  You will find a million books about this, and at a price you'll love.


All books on resumés that I've found suck.  Most examples given are bad for job resumés and aweful for grad. school resumés.

Just my $0.02.

Check out college websites.  On the career services sites there are, usually, sample resumés.  If you have a lot of work experience, I'd recommend that you check out a graduate school site.  The graduate career services tend to have more sample resumés geared to people with WE.

I was in a similar situation (that is, I graduated college in less than four years) and I was able to graduate early due to AP credit.  It didn't cause me to take any more classes than my friends.


What do you mean? I really don't do much at all, even during school... I just start really early, remember?

I mean, if you're cramming all your classes into 3 years, then you must be taking more classes per semester, so that's extra class time per day plus study time. Plus work time, plus occasional volunteer work, plus caregiving. Plus time to, you know, sleep and eat. That doesn't leave a lot of hours in the day to go out with friends or do stuff for fun.

I don't know. I mean, if it works for you then okay, but I think it's sad when people give up precious time to be young and irresponsible in hopes of 'getting ahead'. You'll have the rest of your life to spend all day working and worrying about your career. Why rush it?

At the end of their lives, which do you think people regret more - not having worked an extra year, or not taking time to enjoy being young and without so many responsibilities?

I should note that the sample LOR's in Montauk's book are above and beyond what anyone can and should expect from a professor. they are ridiculously best-case LOR's that very few, if anyone actually gets.

I wholeheartedly agree.  However, every book I have seen explaining how to write an LOR is targeted toward employers.  Montauk gives a basic LOR and an outstanding (albeit unreasonable) LOR example for each case.  The OP could try to write an LOR that is in-between the two examples.

Compared to Texas, GULC sucks.  I don't know many people who think highly of GULC.  Also, I think Texas is better than Duke, though Duke can stay in the Top14 if GULC drops. 
Wait, if is sucks compared to UT, then why is it ranked higher?  What makes UT better than GULC and Duke in your "humble" opinion?

How many people here have heard and regurgitated advice saying that rankings don't matter with regard to closely ranked schools.  Ask around; the general consensus is that Texas is a better school than Duke/GULC.

Look at "How to get into a Top Law School" by Montauk.  He has some sample LORs, both exceptional and basic.  You'll be able to see what is expected of a good LOR.

Actually, my LSAC is probably going to be around a 3.5 (maybe a little higher) by the time of application. I can probably get around a 160 on the LSAT (I haven't even opened an LSAT book thoug


Take a practice LSAT before throwing out an arbitrary number.  That's like me saying I expect to get a 3.83 Law School GPA, when I haven’t even applied.
