Guidebooks?
« on: June 30, 2008, 03:26:30 PM »
Hey everyone.

When I was applying to college, I was overwhelmed by the number of guidebooks that existed to tell me about each school's learning environment, facilities, housing, student life, etc. Do any of these exist for law school?

I know you can find a lot of information on each school's website. But I'd love to have a publication that compares these factors relative to one another since a school's website isn't really going to tell me if its students are notoriously competitive or if its facilities are really old.
LSDAS GPA: 3.4
LSAT: October 2008, but practice tests averaging 171-2

Princeton Review has a book called "Best 170 Law Schools" that I thought was very helpful. The number changes each year as more schools are added, and it's a combination of hard data about the schools as well as reviews by current students.

Also, LSAC's "Official Guide to ABA-Approved Law Schools" is invaluable and available online:

And of course, almost every law school has a catalog that they'll send to you that has lots of information and pictures.
