1. If a law school has an official option for "EA", definitely take it. (Be wary of "ED" though) I think this is a good idea for those applicants who have a fairly narrow idea of where they would like to attend and are looking to not drop too much money on apps. For example, Penn EA saved me application fees at M,V etc
2. For URMs, do
take your personal statement very seriously. Allot yourself enough lead time to craft a good essay and to have it critiqued by at least 5 different people--preferrably of varied personalities & tastes. Have a liberal arts professor read/edit it if you can manage it.
3. Also for URMs, don't assume that that status will necessarily make you a shoo-in for T-14. On the other hand, don't undersell/restrict yourself either. LSN can be a great resource when it comes to finding out where others with similar stats were accepted and what their particular soft factors were.
4. Take Powerscore. Or Testmasters.
5. Stalk your professors if you have to when it comes to getting your LORs done on time. Remember to buy them a thank you gift after. You may need their help again when applying for outside scholarships.
6. Read Ivey's book and Montauk's book too.
7. Stay logged in to LSD. It will keep you sane--when the mass anxiety isn't making you insane.
