As you know, Blueprint LSAT Preparation recently gave away five free copies of our brand new LSAT book, The Blueprint for LSAT Logic Games. If you missed out on the drawing, don’t sweat it. We’ve got another pre-law book giveaway to announce right here, right now.

This time, though, we’re giving away five free copies of Law School Expert Ann Levine‘s books The Law School Admission Game (two copies) and The Law School Decision Game (three copies).

Both books are great resources for applying to law school, covering everything from the factors you should weigh in choosing a school to what you can expect working for Big Law. See for yourself in this review of The Law School Decision Game.

Weighing Your Options: February LSAT or Wait Until 2014?

Today on the LSAT blog: a guest post by Law School Expert Ann Levine, the former director of admissions for two ABA-approved law schools and the author of The Law School Admission Game: Play Like an Expert and The Law School Decision Game: A Playbook for Prospective Lawyers.

With December LSAT scores less than a week old and the February LSAT right around the corner, a major question for many law school applicants is whether they should take the February LSAT or wait and apply in the fall 2014. While there are exceptions to every rule, taking the February LSAT is generally not a great idea if you hope to be admitted in fall 2013. To understand why, it’s important to consider the timing of the test and how it coincides with the law school admissions cycle.

4 Things You Should Do While Waiting for a June LSAT Score:

1. Work on your resume. The better job you do of explaining your experiences and accomplishments on your resume, the more freedom you have to explore other areas in your law school personal statement. For tips on how to get started, see this episode of Two-Minute Tips with Law School Expert:

Book Review: The Law School Admission Game

On Monday I watched the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars, had a pumpkin latte, and wore tights to work.  It’s officially fall.
Which means, dear LSATers, that in addition to the fun of studying for the LSAT, it’s time to start applying to law schools.  As an aside, October test takers don’t need to worry about applications until after the test on the 9th.  Decemberites, however, should work on their applications now so that the LSAT score is the final piece of their application.
There’s a fair amount of law school application advice housed in the annals of MSS, including how to get good letters of recommendation, tips for writing the personal statement, and how to use the LSAC website to target schools.
However, a new admissions resource recently landed on my desk, fresh from the parcel post guy (so did a fudge brownie from Starbucks, but that’s another matter). Sent from Ann Levine, it’s her bookThe Law School Admission Game:  Play Like an Expert.
