I've been reading Montauk and Ivey's books about law school admissions (because it is summer and I have nothing else to do
), and they both talk a lot about "marketing" yourself to top schools. Like many many other law school applicants, I am applying straight out of undergrad, majored in government/polysci, and have no permanent "real world" employment experience. So how do we distinguish (or market) ourselves? I've done some interesting stuff (like starting own business, worked for Enron defense, lots of political stuff), but I doubt it is any more outstanding than a lot of these other applicants to top schools. I realize my numbers might be enough to get me into most schools, but I'm aiming mainly for the top 5/6. Am I worrying over nothing? Any tips on "marketing"? Help me out.
