Complete Book of Law Schools, 2004 Edition
Synopses & Reviews
Nobody knows law schools better than The Princeton Review.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW TO MAKE A CRUCIAL DECISION
The law school you choose determines how you’ll spend the next three years of your life and greatly influences how well you will do in the job market after graduation. The Complete Book of Law Schools gives you the lowdown on all ABA- and CBA-accredited schools in the United States and Canada. It also provides the answers to all the practical questions you should ask about every law school to which you consider applying, such as:
-What are the average GPA and LSAT scores of admitted students?
-What is the student/faculty ratio?
-What is the job placement rate for graduates?
-How generous is each law school’s financial aid package?
Plus the basics, like snail mail and email addresses, telephone numbers, admissions deadlines, tuition, and more.
You’ll also find tips on what makes a bold personal statement, insight into the mysterious admissions index, pros and cons of the different kinds of law school loans, and an admissions timeline that will keep you ahead of the game and (relatively) stress-free.
Annually updated, this grad school admission guide includes all the essentialdetails needed to evaluate and apply to law school programs.
