Before looking into how to apply to Law Schools, it is very important to understand why you are applying to law school. For the right reasons, law school can be an incredible and life-altering experience that will take you to the next stage of your intended career. So, why do you want to attend law school? Stop by the CDO or the local bookstore to browse through books such as
The Lawyer Myth, What Every Law Student Really Needs to Know, Non Legal Careers for Lawyers, 1L of a Ride, Should You Really Be a Lawyer?, plus many others. Also talk with alumni, friends and family in the law profession who can answer your questions and give you a first-hand account of law school, as well as offer their own guidance and advice. Finally, as you are making your decision, remember to make an appointment with your Pre-Law Advisor who can help guide your efforts.
