Hey guys, I started on these boards over six years ago when I decided to go back to school an eventually go to law school . After completing undergrad, taking the LSAT, applying and getting accepted to LS, graduating and successfully sitting for the bar I just wanted to share whatever helpful hints I could. Below are all the helpful resources that helped me in LS.

UPDATE - - - Five years later I took the July bar and was successful on my first try. From LSAT to Bar, this journey has been unique.

Any updates?

I'm in my 2nd year of law school and I absolutely love it! It's tough, but do-able when you have the dedication and drive from having doors shut in your face all your life.

Good Luck to all!

yes congrats to you for you story and your ambition. I too had a troubled and checkered past. I was up front, honest and provided every piece of paperwork the court could muster up, and I too am attending law school as a young black male that once was on the wrong track.
It can be done!

ok, I'll bite.

WTF are you talking bout?

I certainly understand and  even commend the entrepreneurial spirit of the poster above ^^ but coming from someone who has worked his entire life starting w/ a paper route when I was 10 to an IT supervisor at 30, honestly I would never want to work for someone who's never had a job.
That being said, I don't think the aforementioned party was referring to ones job as the main indicating factor of ones worth, and neither am I, I think said poster was referring to ones level of wisdom obtained by such job(s) or lack there of.

The reputation of a school does indeed matter. It is not, however, the only factor in the equation to success. A great school and good grades can garner more opportunities, but talent and drive make the difference between a good and a top-notch lawyer.

Great article!!!
