I know it’s been awhile since my last post. I promise it hasn’t been intentional neglect (read this as college senior with 4 papers and a test in the next week). Something I’ve been seeing a lot of in my e-mail inbox and via the mail has been a lot of “Law School prep course material”. It’s companies that reach out to law school students trying to sell a prep-class. They claim the classes increase your linklihood of achieving a high rank put you in the proper mindset for law school.
After having talked to dozens of law school students and reading up on these courses online my advice is save your money. For one, law school seems to be more about time management then “knowing” black letter law, before hand. There’s a reason law schools don’t have some kind of required undergraduate program of study. You can come in without any knowledge of the law. That’s why you’re there.
In all honestly, I think the best course of action is to do what I’m doing. It’ll cost you about $20-$40 on Amazon.
*Sorry for the original post of “LSAT” instead of “Law School” prep. That’s what I get for trying to write a post during the NCAA National Championship Game…
