About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
As a former Harvard Dean in Law School admissions, she can write with many details about what the admission effort involves,including suggestions for positive interview results. She suggests some helpful work experiences you may want to explore before making a decision, and also reviews some questions on how to finance law school. Finally, she touches on some of the possibilities a law school graduate might consider after graduation, including clerkships, internships, and summer employment opportunities.
This is an extremely readable and informative book for anyone considering law school. She includes many useful anecdotes and personal stories from her own long career and personal experience.
I've counseled students in law school and recruited for a top Wall Street firm for over twenty years- what I wish is that all those students I met over the years had had the benefit of Curll's common sense career advice. While always careful not to direct students in any one direction, Curll shares a balanced assessment of the many options in both the public and private sector open to law school grads.
This book is a perfect primer for anyone considering going to law school. Buy it for any undergraduate, but particularly for those students without access to a savvy pre-law advisor who can to coach them through the admissions process. Curll's careful tips to her readers helping them navigate through each step of the application process will do much to level the admissions playing field.
Dean Curll wisely begins her guide by raising and discussing whether the would-be applicant really wants a career in the law. The guidebook then reviews the many factors that effect law school admissions, making it clear that while there are no quick, clever ways to beat the system, there are any number of ways to improve one's chances.
My only concern about the book is the likelihood that undergraduates may lack the experience to appreciate the volume's intelligence, wisdom and wit.
