Hi, again -- In case you can't tell, I spend my life at Borders...
Glad the Ivey book is of interest. I also have Law School Confidential
by Robert H. Miller -- it's a very accessible guide from applications through the Bar exam. Not sure if you'd be interested in this, but Linda Hirshman's A Woman's Guide to Law School
provides some unusual information I haven't seen anywhere else -- specifically, her own ratings system for quantifying women's success at law schools; aside from its insightful discussion of women & law review, I think it will be mostly helpful in the application process. One L
by Scott Turow is a classic I'm sure you've heard of; I have yet to purchase it.
But the best book I suggest checking out is Planet Law School II: What You Need to Know (Before You Go), But Didn't Know to Ask... and No One Else Will Tell You, Second Edition
by Atticus Falcon. It's an 858-page tome whose tone is set in the first few pages; it actually contains a guide for how to approach the book if you're skeptical about its ability to help you and don't have much time to read it. One of the guys in my Powerscore class toted it around with him...I've postponed buying a copy until my applications are finished, since I know it will be a big distraction. I've never seen it in a store, but it's an easy and worthwhile purchase on Amazon.
Enjoy! Please post any of your own suggestions if you happen to find good reading in your travels...
