lost in a sea of info
« on: October 28, 2003, 01:47:10 PM »
I am thinking about going to law school in the fall of 04. I will graduate with my first bachelors which has nothing to do with law in May.
What do I need to do now? I have never even looked into law school until recently and all of the info that I get blows me away.

Can someone give the heads up on the LSAT? I don't know any thing about it.

Probably the best starting point is the website for the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) at www.lsac.org.  It should provide you with a good overview of law school and where the LSAT falls within the bigger picture.

My only personal advice at this stage is not to let horror stories discourage you from pursuing law school.  As a 1L, I've noticed that most people emphasize the amount of reading required without mentioning how fascinating it is to learn and discuss rules and policies that influence all of our lives.  If you show up to each class prepared and enthusiastic, you can really enjoy yourself.  If you have common sense, enjoy discussing and debating issues, apply yourself to the material, and stay organized, you'll do fine.

Good luck.

I've written an introduction to law school applications here:

I tried to write this to answer the questions I had when I was in your position, so it should be a help.
