"This is a fantastic time to attend law school, so best of luck with your journey! There is no particular science to preparing for law school, but here are a few thoughts. First, if you’re going to read anything to prepare, read books by or about great lawyers. There will be days when remembering how powerful a law degree can be will help you make it through! Second, think carefully and conscientiously about how you’re going to pay for your law degree. Research and apply for scholarships that will help you reduce your reliance on loans. Third, rally your support system. Law school can be all consuming, so make sure that you have folks in your life who will make you get your nose out of casebooks and smell the roses."

"Congratulations on considering law school! If you are passionate about making a difference in the world, I believe there is no better path than seeking a legal education. Lawyers lead change. As you begin preparing yourself for law school, I have three suggestions: (1) If you can, take an extra class in which you will do a lot of writing and get feedback on your writing. Writing skills are critical in law school. (2) Hone your time and workload management skills. For all of us, law school challenges our ability to manage and prioritize workload. You are best off having mastered these skills before beginning your law school studies. (3) Read one or two of the many books on how to succeed in law school—but don’t try to read them all."

"What an exciting time to be considering law school! Law school communities are made up of students from all walks of life. As you prepare for your future, do your best to diversify your experiences, challenge yourself, and try new things. Join student or community organizations that interest you and will bring you leadership opportunities. When you are ready, take on one, or two, of those roles! Travel – whether it’s across town or across the ocean – get out there and experience different communities and cultures. Finally, push your limits. Take classes that challenge you academically, engage in conversations that open your eyes to new perspectives, and meet new people!"
