Building Your Application: The Academic Index

It’s time for another post on the application building process. So far, we’ve discussed acquiring letters of recommendation and crafting your personal statement. If you’re planning on applying in the next few months, you should hopefully have already contacted your recommenders and you should have a sense of the topic for your personal statement. If you’re feeling overwhelmed already, don’t worry—this post is based on work you’ve already completed. Today, we’re going to discuss the academic index.

Building Your Law School Application: The Personal Statement

A couple weeks ago, I wrote a post about the first step in the law school application process–collecting letters of recommendation.

Law School Admission Standards Have Been Declining. That’s Good News … Right …?

Harvard Law recently decided to allow applicants to submit GRE scores in lieu of LSAT scores. The move has added fuel to the fire that law schools are needlessly lowering their academic standards. Good news for those who are about to apply, right? Well … lower standards come with ramifications both positive and negative.
