Making Friends With Non-Traditional Law Students Pays Off

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.

You enter 1L Orientation and you look for someone to sit next to, hoping to strike up a friendship. Do you pick the guy your age in a baseball cap or the one who is 20 years older than you?

I recently had the great pleasure of meeting, face-to-face, one of my former clients who is a recent graduate of a law school consistently ranked in the Top 10. His post-bar trip with his wife brought him to Southern California, and my husband and I took them to brunch.

LSAT Test-Takers Disappear Again: What’s it Mean for You?

Jeff Baisley grew up dreaming of the big leagues. And in 2005, that dream (sort of) came true.

Named MVP in 2006 while playing for the Kane County Cougars, Jeff drove in 110 runs and hit 22 homers. Three of them were in the same game.

And if everyone who sat out this year’s October LSAT (compared to last year) were there to witness his amazing feat, you could have filled the stadium.

7,389 fewer people sat for the October LSAT this past month than did the year before. Literally enough to fill a baseball stadium.

Let that sink in.
