Abstract:

"Law school applicants should consider this a guide to producing a competitive, superior essay. ... These successful examples speak louder than any written how-to instructions could." 'The Book Watch Each year, thousands of people apply to the most prestigious law schools across the country, competing for an ever-smaller number of spaces. But each applicant gets one chance to distinguish himself or herself from the pack: the law school application essay. In the essay, you can spotlight the qualities you possess that transcripts and LSAT scores cannot reveal. Essays That Worked for Law Schools shows that winning essays come in a variety of styles and voices. One student writes about running a day-care center. Another tells a harrowing story about driving a cab in New York City. And a third gives an incredibly convincing argument for why the world needs one more good lawyer. From the thousands submitted each year, the essays in this book were considered some of the best by admissions officers at the nation's top law schools. If you're facing essay anxiety, this book will educate and inspire you'and most important of all, help you write an essay that will give you the best chance of getting into the law school of your choice. From the Trade Paperback edition.
