  • 5 Tips for Getting Into Law School

    Thinking you might want to go to law school one day? Wondering what you can do in college to put yourself in the best possible position to get in? This week, visiting blogger Asha Rangappa, associate dean of admissions at Yale Law School, offers her best suggestions for aspiring legal eagles:

    I'm often approached by college freshmen and sophomores (and, less frequently, by high school seniors) who ask me how best to prepare for law school. My general advice is to relax and enjoy your college experience—after all, law school, unlike, say, medical school, doesn't have a lot of prerequisites that necessitate a ton of advance planning. But there are a few things you can do to make sure you've covered all your bases by the time you get to your senior year of college.

          1. Research the law schools. You wouldn't go to a job interview without first conducting some research on your prospective employer, right? So why would you not do the same for a law school? Find out all you can about the school's culture, specialties, faculty, etc. Do not base your decision solely on rankings.

          2. Write your personal statement. You're writing about a topic you know better than anyone else: you. If you've followed the steps outlined above, writer's block should not be much of a problem. Above all else, take the time to write a separate statement for each law school. According to University of North Carolina Law School Assistant Dean for Admissions Michael J. States, the most common mistake that law school applicants make is submitting the same personal statement to different schools. By doing so, they risk sending in a statement that does not adequately respond to the school's admission questions, and are wasting an opportunity to say why a particular school is right for them. (Click here to read the full transcript of our interview with Dean States.)

          3. Obtain your letters of reference. Select who you want for references and determine how to approach them. Tell them what you would like them to say and explain your "story" to them. They should certainly substantiate that story to the best of their ability.

          4. Practice for the admission interview -- if one is required. Review your application from a third person's perspective. Anticipate what questions they will ask you. Arrange one or more mock interviews to ensure you have your story down and it flows naturally.

          5. Sit back and relax. You've done everything you can to the best of your ability. With some luck, you'll be deciding which of your many offers to accept!

                These guideline are too good and good research about law school, I thing this root is the best for the LLB student, Because they can get more information about law form here and they can choose a best root in their own life.

                      For integrated llb you can look for colleges like National Law School of India University, Bangalore , NALSAR University of Law, College of Legal Studies (UPES-Dehradun), NLU, Delhi , ,Symbiosis Law School, Pune etc. Most os law schools accepts CLAT score for admisison but some conducts their own entrance exams as well apart from CLAT criteria. Like UPES conducts ULSAT test. Among these I've heard UPES offer specialised integrated llb programs in core domains so I think you will have an added adantage too. So, do a deep research of these colleges and know their pros and cons and go for the one that you find best. Good luck

                            Yes some schools now allow other options, and others have a few slots that are open for non-LSAT applicants.

                              The most important law school preparation is learning read and write well and quickly and in an organized fashion.

                              And then to rigorously pursue an area of academic study that you enjoy, and that you excel in.
